    This is a heavenly rumble and all in time for WPPD! I have examples from lots of cams.
    QUESTION: can we only use cams that LSI sell or are you open to a bit of experimentation?

    @kylewis: "Any photo taken with a camera with a pinhole function" - I'd say that's about as open as it gets! :)

    I can't upload anything as I can't see what the ... is on my previous uploads. I would really prefer to upload via 'browsing' my hard drive, would be good to have the option for both!

    This means uploading twice!
