I found an orchid finally...well a field full actually with 3 different kinds in but very late on flowering!http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/246...
thanks, and glad you asked. I've been told this was a good camera to get although I suppose it depends what you want it for, it's an Olympus VG-110. It's VERY easy to use, focuses down to 3cm from the lens which is usually good enough for me. There's a 4X optical zoom (except when photographing close up). Small and easily fits in a pocket. It often gets dirty and occasionally moist but it has survived a year of constant use. It cost me £50 and then another £25 for a spare battery in case it runs out. My main issues with it are that you can't do manual focus (always automatic). you can't vary the focal range manually. The 4X optical zoom is OK but is bad for photographing birds and small-ish things at a distance
WOW i like your picture! If you don't mind me askng what camera did you use to take that picture, because i'm hoping to get new camera but not sure what to get. ;-)
yup you! np
Me? Thanks Lipase.

Perfect for the Wild Orchids mission. If only more orchids were this common!http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8564...
Thanks dandoucette and Daniel. looking on NBN Gateway it appears it is very common as the name suggests! http://data.nbn.org.uk/imt/?mode=SPECIES...
