    Thanks fellas.

    First time to use the camera in " anger "

    On auto mode...,

    Now to learn how to really use it.,,

    Though.. I have decided to carry the Aw 1 and the aw100 if I have the models correct.

    The aw1 is great when you have time.. But a great point and shoot for the dust and ot_her times is handy..,

    Not to mention the Sony experia.. Great phone / camera.

    Cheers
    Brian

    A few snaps from the Sony phone now.

    At one stage we were forced to pull in as the fog was so bad.

    Big Dave, myself and a couple of others went for a walk along the river bank and found a little village with school.

    They didn't mind a bit that these two big Farangs were sticking their heads in the school and watching the days activities.

    Great photos Brian.

    Your new camera certainly captures the beauty of the mighty Mekong.

    Looking forward to seeing some "sunset beers" photos.
