I joined in 2007 when I bought my first serious DSLR, (Nikon D200). I haven't been dormant since then but anything I posted on here has disappeared? Currently I have a Panasonic FZ330, a Canon Ixus185 & an SJ6 Action camera. My wife has just bought a Panasonic FZ82.. In 2011 we moved from North Yorkshire to Merseyside & currently seeking a U3A group with a Photography section. There are 3 in the area, 1 I have visited & discounted, 1 I have visited & shortlisted & 1 yet to visit. My main interest is AV, & currently have almost 200 shows on my YouTube channel, mostly travel related but some instructional. I have just bought a new W10PC & the software I use is W10 Professional, Adobe Elements 2019, Audacity, Pictures to Exe, & Camtasia. Hopefully I can contribute some of what I have learned over the last 12 years. I have a current problem which I will mention, but may have to ask elsewhere on here. My Wife's FZ82 does not come with a lens hood, & there is no facility to fit a clip on reversible petal type. The thread is 55mm so I bought a screw on 55mm rubber hood, which is 75mm internal diameter & projects about 30mm. The lens zooms from 20 to 1200mm & at 20mm has a full circle vignette which disappears around 35mm. I have ordered another rubber hood which looks to be a larger outside diameter, hopefully, the vignette will disappear with the new one. If it doesn't I thought I might try cutting the first hood to a petal shape & reducing the length. I'm loth to try to use a screw on rigid petal hood as she has arthritis & would find fitting the hood a chore. Has anyone got a solution.? Reg's Yachtsman1.
