About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

Re: Re: Probane, isotubane... etc fuel canister.
Take the 220g canister. Always better to have fuel left over than run out before your last dinner. Weigh the canister before you start and at the end, then you will know how much you actually used ...

Re: Re: Sensor dust
The average user of a P&S does not know how to check for sensor dust (that included me until recently) and the average P&S does not allow you to set the aperture small enough to check even ...
