OK, still got focus issues, but this was without really setting up carefully and I expected little from it, but my dear wife bought me a flexible legged tripod in Aldi's, the excellent value German supermarket chain.
A mere 7 quid, it has knuckle jointed legs in a soft plastic which "stick" to irregular surfaces and they are all I have in my workshop! It even has a quick release system to save you screwing it in the camera every time. Now, is there a remote trigger for the Fuji S5500, I wonder?
Oh the window patterns, sorry. Popped out of the butter-slarred apertures once set and these are about to be filed up to shape. Then it's just the mud flap patterns and they'll be off to my son for vac-forming. More anon.
