Re: Roland Garros

If you wonder what Arnaud does at the moment...answer in l'equipe: lol

Eliminé sur les trois tableaux de RG, Arnaud Clément rejoindra Halle dès samedi pour y disputer son premier tournoi sur gazon. Avant cela, il a effectué un petit détour chez ses parents Aix en Provence. Le jardin familial provoquait en lui un attrait irresistible..." Je suis venu ici pour m'entrainer un peu et surtout pour manger des cerises, dit-il. Tous les ans je manque la récolte, ça ne pouvait plus durer. Il en a vu des pies, ce cerisier ! Il doit avoir 25 ans, il fait partie de la maison". Le cas des cerises étant réglé, ne reste plus qu'à trouver le gateau afferent...
This kind of anecdot is "typically arnaudien"...

Translation:
Eliminated on the 3 draws of RG, Arnaud Clement will go to Halle on saturday for his first match on grass. Before that, he made a detour via his parents' home in Aix en Provence. The family garden broughtinto him an irresistible appeal.
"I came here for practising a little bit, and above all for eating cherries, said he. Every year I miss the crop, it couldn't last still more time. This cherry tree is probably 25 years old, he's part of the house".

Re: Roland Garros

I finally got ALL the pics done and reposted/organized. Nono has his own folder, so you dont have to sift through my Benneteaus or DiPs looking for the Nonoshots, lol.

so check them out, (the new digi is a LOVELY camera, has a leica lens and a kick butt zoom) http://groups.msn.com/tennispics2004

Re: Roland Garros

Via, its that new Panasonic (saw the adverts all over in Paris) with the Leica lens. I'll give you the specs, but the best part is that it has a sports function that lets you follow the action, but has a built in stabilizer that won't take an out of focus picture in auto mode....it just rocks. The clarity in the photos is just beyond fabulous, digi or not it beats my slr by miles.

Here's the specific make: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10PP

Re: Roland Garros

thanks for the tip michelle! i happen to be looking at the ads for the new canon s1... which also has a stabilizer but i don't think it will 'refuse' to take a bad pic!

the olympus that i've got since last xmas has all the 10x zoom and stuff that's supposed to work well for sports action. but as i've been whinging - i took lots of blurry pics in january. i don't know if a stabilizer would help, i think it's simply has a slow focus. by the time i framed the player and press the button to focus, that naughty guy (usu. arnaud) had already moved. esther seemed to do better with her pics, but i never really know which olympus she had

someone's told me that you really need a top of the range (close to professional) digi cam to have that sort of fast focusing... >$1000 in your money, i guess.
