Unfortunately this time we spent the day dodging showers. We could see them heading across the sea from Arran and we'd try and work out if it would hit us or pass by. Just as Kev's route was becoming dry another one would catch us. Frustrating.

It wasn't the best outing for the new cameras either. Sony, in common with other manufacturers, are at pains to point out in their literature that their cameras are neither dust resistant or water resistant. In fact anything vaguely related to a normal day of filming climbing seems to invalidate the warranty. Why can't you get robust and weather sealed bodies and lenses like you do with good Digi SLRs?Kev Shields back in August, making the first ascent of The Benny Hill Show, E4 6a/b.
