1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I have a sneaky suspicion that some of the CMOS cameras are rather good. What does Terry think?

    Having caught the flipping DIY NV bug, I have some high spec CMOS cameras on the slow boat.

    For the price of the one (£12) you mention matthew28 and the recommendation from sillygarry I would not hesitate to purchase and play with it. Might just have one myself while I am waiting. :)

    P.S. The fleabay listing/wording is not very good but I think he means that you cannot see too well at night without any IR illumination. I have a box full of medium priced CCD boards that fit that description nicely.

    no its not ir cut i just stripped the wall bracket off you have to cut it off with a hacksaw as the camera plug wont pull through it,then remove the led's and screw back together the white casing will fit into a waste pipe fitting then all you need is a 1/3" x 16mm lens, when combined with one of terry's zoom ir torches you will be able to see 150yrds + :up:

    The camera will be a gamble and as Steve has said you will have to throw a lot of it away. If Garry has used it with some success you have a reasonable chance although if I were buying I wouldn't have given it a second glance as I prefer board cameras or, at a pinch, the bullet versions where you are only paying for the camera. It will need a new lens, presumably a board type (12mm).
    There is nothing wrong with CMOS cameras as compared with CCD, there was a difference in power consumption but I don't think that is still an issue. Some of the best digital cameras about, costing thousands of pounds, use CMOS sensors, the end result is down to the quality of engineering and the firmware used. At the moment there is little known about CMOS cameras for use in nv add ons but they are starting to be used, the Photon has a CMOS sensor and that is very sensitive.
