From Aug 2006 - Nov 2013 WeDig provided a live forum for diggers & fans of Vindolanda. It has now been mothballed and will be maintained as a live archive.

Here you will find preserved 7 years of conversation, photos, & knowledge about a site many people love. Vindolanda gets under the skin. (Figuratively and literally as a volunteer excavator!) It's a place you remember, filled with people you remember!

Thanks for 7 great years!

Entering a little late into the conversation on cameras - in 2009 while on holiday in Scotland the viewer on the back of my Canon camera got broken. I could still take pix but couldn't see the image. On the way home we bought another one, in a rush, you know, one of those quick decisions, and do you know, it is the BEST camera I've ever had.

Canon PowerShot SX200 15, with 12 x optical zoom. It says on the lens ring that it is 12 x 15, with 5.0-60.mm 1:3.4-5.3 . Just over 4inches long and one and a half inch wide. Fits into the pocket, or hand, very nicely. Not very heavy either. And wasn't hugely expensive, around 200.

And most of you have seen the results I get from it. Its good on close-up and zoom. Good clear photographs - even taken on dark rainy days at Vindolanda the camera will make the sky seem summery :D I do a lot of videos on it, too.

Hope this helps a bit with the decision.
