    Found it at a £1 store. Basic design; you attach it to your belt and
    it counts the shakes (well, supposedly steps, but it really just counts
    the shakes), and it has a button to reset. I suspect it's woefully
    inaccurate and wildly overshoots; could I have made 208 steps in the
    kitchen while preparing a sauce?! Already got hiking shoes. Sometime
    soon I'll take my digicam and go on a hike. And sometime next year I'll
    get an epson 4990, a medium format camera or a 4x5, a camping-like
    small rucksack for it, and maybe even a mountain bike!

    Sounds like a second childhood looming!

    Before someone tells me off here for cross-posting to 35mm, I still got
    a bunch of 35mm cameras needing some exercise too!

    Sounds as if he's lost control of his Should-I-Post-Or-Not process.

  6. NO NO NO !

    In future he will market his photography sessions to his customers by the
    number of steps he expects to take during the assignment. And if he goes
    over sends a bill for excess steps! :)

  7. They should combine it with a compass, and give it an electronic
    memory....Then it could tell you how to get back home....Take 2,356 steps
    NNW, then 4,323 steps S, then..........

  8. A simple, inexpensive GPS receiver will keep track of your trip distance
    much more accurately *and* can help you find your way home!

    As an aside - the GPS can record a "track" of time-stamped waypoints
    which you can combine with your digital camera's EXIF data to enable you
    to pinpoint where you took each photo.

    He could go digital only using a pencil, graph paper and a pedometer. Map
    each square on the graph paper to the area he wants to photograph. Count
    the number of steps to it on the padometer and then shade the sqare in with
    that many pencil strokes.

    I actually got some digital shoes from the gadget shop just like that. They
    used to steer you home if you were drunk. After a while the shoes got
    bored. I started waking up in different places. One day the shoes walked
    out on me. They wotwired a car and drove off. They only got to the end of
    the junction though, they couldn't steer you see. I went to a priest about
    saying i felt really awful that i had been such a bad role model for them.
    He said not to worry they are in a better place now.



    you see, even shoes have soles

    bwhahahhahahhaha!!!!
