Zürich airport is called Kloten, which is Dutch for "balls". "Klote" is a Dutch cursing word which means sth like "damn it". We like the Swiss though

I think it's a digital compact camera without any manual modes for Aperture and Shutter speed - so you can't change it...

The best cam for roadpics is a cam with "aperture value" (Link in German) - but the most compact camera haven't got sth. like this...


Damn - my English is too bad to describe it exactly....
No, I don't think I have that. But some pics are crystal clear. I think I don't concentrate sometimes.

My Canon Powershot A530 doesn't have that feature. But I need to buy a new camera somewhere next year with more fps to have higher quality videos. All my videos are taken with my compact camera.

If you want again a Canon, buy a Canon with "Av" and "Tv" modes (e. g. PoweShot A720IS).

And/Or ask the forum(s) before.

I just have a simple HP Photosmart, I've taken all my pics with it. It's not high quality, but it's ok. It works well and so far I've hardly had any technical problems

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5A and I've gotta say it shoots awesome pics even though it's a compact. It has quite a few manual settings to choose from. And it records 1280x720 resolution videos at 30 fps.

I agree with Verso, I'd always put the original name of the city, and the local (where the sign is): like Wien/Beč, Bratislava/Pozsony and so on...

It doesn't make the sings much clearer, on the contrary.

I suppose the sign Bécs-Wien at the Austrian border still exitst?

I think signs with names in 2 (or more – unless it becomes too messy) languages should exist if justified. In case if not writing Celovec we would deny existence of Slovene language and heritage there.

The problem is in defining justified. In my opinion putting new Italian naming of many Slovenian towns from time of occupation (with active assimilation policy) on signs in Italy is less justified than for example Slavic naming of Hungarian towns which had Slavic names before the language of the inhabitants shifted to Hungarian (this means double naming on Slovene or Croatian signs for Budimpešta/Budapest, single naming on Hungarian signs is OK). Likewise signing of Bécs/Wien in Hungarian language area is justified in my opinion, signing of Bécs/Vindobona wouldn't be (missing destination name Wien, no native Latin speakers there (in Hungarian language area) so Vindobona is not necessary).

...Of course. We need to show respect for both size of this issue. That´s why I think Pozsony/Bratislava,Bécs/Wien etc. shall be signed double!
