    Welcome to the new SGL!

    Hi thanks for your reply, I meant to say I am using Opera. I do not recall giving anybody permission to send me anything and TBH it is blumming annoying when it keeps on making a noise and poping up. .

    Welcome to the new SGL!

    Hii I have not said yes to any popup, if fact I run a blocker. Now as I have not altered anything and it only started with the new software and it does not happen with any other site, IMHO it IS something the new software has done and I would like to switch it off please. I am using Firefox. .

    Scb2000 Connection To Laptop?!? Help :)

    Hi I have found there are two types of USB adapter, one works for security use (often allow a number of cameras), the other works for our use (normally for one camera and two audio inputs). Try reading the e-bay advert very carefully. .

  13. Hi and welcome. Manchester is rather large, would you care to be more specific? Do you have your own transport? Would you not do better to visit your local club, have a chat with them, maybe even try a few 'in anger'? .

    Base for NEQ6 tripod

    Hi You do not have to get them level, the tripod legs take care of levelling and the legs go back in the same position each time, just do not collapse them. The weight is an advantage as it will 'bed' them into the ground better and they do not even have to be level, they can follow the contour of the land as the locating holes will always get the tripod in the same position. .

    Base for NEQ6 tripod

    Why not just put 3 no 2' x 2' flags down, then you can do as I do and drill 3 shallow holes into them to give 3 points to locate the legs of the tripod. .
