I would have been expecting some hail myself but got a downpour of epic proportions with gusty winds, dazzling lightning and a nice shelf cloud,, there was some rotation with the scud going in all different directions but nothing lowered down from it. I was very impressed with what i seen overall, today was definately the best storm day i have had this year, i was talking about travelling to a different location but im glad i stuck it out in Belfast! Smiley Now for a walk home in the rain........ Cry

Hi Guys,, although its a good bit of time away im trying to make some preparations for my trip next year and one of the main things i need is a new camera,, unfortunately this is one area where i havnt really got a clue in regards to brand, reliability, quality etc. I want to get something decent that would withstand the weather and could take decent video and images but not cost a bomb, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
