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.

    Thank you.

    '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.

    Bit the bullet yesterday and decided to stop f*annying around with the cheaper end of board cameras.

    Purchased a KPC-E700PUB from Mat at Sure24. Paid for it yesterday afternoon and now have it here in my hands at 09:53hrs the next day.

    Thanks Mat and the Royal mail. A sweet service.

    Now, next question. I am a bit wary at having a go at the little pink glass IR cut filter on this camera. Probably cos it cost a few quid. Normally I would use the soldering iron method but if it is not stuck on too firmly, I fancy the sharp craft knife method. Who has taken the IR cut filter off this camera and what did you use?

    I am going to try it first with the filter on.

    Cheers,
    Paul

    I have heard several reports saying that the filter is easy to remove with a scalpel, hope they're right :up:

    Terry, I was hoping you were going to say you had already done it and it was easy peasy.

    I will try the camera tonight with the filter in place first. Of course, I have had it out of its case for a look see. Very well built with the OSD control on the back of the board. Nice looking build compared to some of the others out there.

    Mine was a piece of cake, certainly much easier than the cheaper camera I had.

    I got the same one as you. You need to unscrew the lense, take the housing off, so you can see the chip and board and then literally pick off the filter with your finger nails.

    They have used a very soft glue on the filter so it comes off really easy , i just worked my way round all four sides with a new craft knife blade and by the time i done the last one it just came off taking all the glue with it.

    Thanks guys. That's a relief. The last thing I wanted to do was to gnadger an expensive camera. Some of the filters on previous cameras have been right sods to remove.

    Update. Managed to pull off the pink glass IR filter. I just got a firm hold of it between the fingernails of my thumb and first finger and pulled. Came off real nice and easy.


    Update to the update. Just fired it up outside with its 16mm lens and one of my homebrew IR torches. Well impressed. Now to build it into a box and hook it up to my Nikon prostaff.
