Jeeeeesh Alf,

You're not supposed to go around breaking arms when you are a photographer.
A leg is OK, but no arms!! :)

It does tie up doing things and as you say, trying to hold and focus a
camera with one hand is a problem.

Now Alf, you see the perfect reason for having an autofocus camera! :)
providing of course that it is the left arm that is broken. 

Hope it mends quickly and OK.
