How "limitless" quickly becomes "limited"

I caught site of an old copy of Amateur Photographer earlier, it was the 6 August 2005 issue, so a little over 18 months old now. The cover promised a review of the Nikon D2Hs, and referred to it’s "almost limitless burst depth". This burst depth was actually 50 4.1M JPEG images, taken at 8fps.

Now some 18 months later Canon are releasing the 1DMkIII which has a burst depth of 110 10.1M JPEG images, taken at 10fps. That Nikon now appears somewhat sedentary in comparison.

Time to go and ride I bike I think. I just have to decide between the Unit and the 456.

    See, even your choices are limited! Although there are those who say that your selection of bikes is almost limitless!

    I don’t need another digital SLR (yet), I’m more than happy with the 30D.

    I did indeed ride the 456, not only did it have the lights on, but more importantly it had the hipflask attached.

    Ahhhh! now that was infomation I didn’t have.. I think It would be dangerous for me to have alcohol on my bike, it’s dodgy enough as it is!

    I need another hipflask cage for the Unit really. A whiskey stop on the top of the hill helps make the ride complete.
