    With the West highland Way walk coming up for me in march I have been doing
    a few local long walks with the G3, to see how it fares in the great outdoors.
    Last week it was here.
    https://www.mu-43.com/f60/blencathra-via-sharp-edge-18429/

    Today was a rather windy 10 miles along a stretch of the Cumbrian Way, Below
    Mungrisedale common and Skidaw.
    When i first got the G3 i had issues with the rear jog dial. I think i've just about got that sorted now. But what has been a real problem for me today, has been the constant inadvertent changing of settings. This camera really needs a way to disable all (or selected) buttons. I would also like to change the movie button
    to function as an ae lock.
    As it is i am having doubts as to use this model, for what is for me, perhaps the last long distance walk (96 miles) i will ever do.
    However i do like this camera a lot, it gives me the quality i need. Its robust.
    And it would maybe make a great Hiking camera in warmer more settled
    climates. Anyway here are 3 from today.
    The first one is what i saw by the banks of a beck. No photographic merit,
    but i had to share it. It choked me a little i will admit

    The second. Well its Buster again. My main model. He is a little like action man. You can set him up in a pose and usually, he will stay there.:smile:
