A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.

Amazingly, the RNLI crew let a bunch of photography hacks take turns driving their brand-new £2.5million super-boat. Mind you, I doubt we could have damaged it, the thing is built like a tank.

I bet you wish you'd worn that waterproof they offered you now, don't you? Hehehe.

The boat we were on was travelling at about the same speed as this one, pitching up and down on the waves, and throwing up just as much spray. I managed to get this shot and many more one-handed, while hanging on for dear life with my other hand. Any camera that can produce a shot this good under those circumstances is clearly doing something right.

Finally, many thanks to the staff of the RNLI Training College, Poole, for a memorable day out. The RNLI has saved over 137,000 lives since 1824, is staffed largely by volunteers, and is funded entirely by charity. Support your local lifeboat, and make a donation today!
