I'll trade you a digi camera for something interesting from your stash if you like, i have an old Fuji Fine pix S602 Zoom one that was best in which digi camera in its day, now its bobbins of course but still does the job and cost a whopping 600 sheets bitd from John evil Lewis.

Retro digi cam for retro bike stuff ? LOL
