  • I still have an R1 and use it often, I never understood why there was never a successor .....maybe it was just too good ?
  • Now most cameras look alike, what were your favourite unconventional designs from the past ?, the Sony DSC-F717 with its swivel body, this was one of my favourites but there were many many more
  • In the 1980s I was a milk delivery man (a milkman) and we had a fleet of these, they carried hundreds of Kg of produce fairly long distances in all weathers and I never once ran flat in the 3 ...
  • Good point, I have a Russian Motorcycle still made hardly changed since the 1940s which will operate between +/- 40 deg C, no electronics at all,  apart from electronic ignition, it has ...
  • I agree, I have concluded that I have gone as far as I need to with current camera tech, no need to buy another unless and until something genuinely revolutionary comes along (which I can't ...
  • I was given a 1977 East German (DDR) MZ TS250-1, a single cylinder 250cc 2 stroke which was still mechanically perfect at 50,000 miles and at the time I had a heavy high performance 650cc Japanese ...
  • Replied in Explore
    Nor do I and this is a problem for the manufacturers, this site needs to promote all these new features as its the only thing to talk about now, but I just don't want them, like your "creeping ...
  • Replied in Well...
    Take my Sony R1 for example, that was "almost" good enough way back then in 2005 and I still use it regularly, it just needed a sensor that was better at higher ISOs and slightly faster AF, but in ...
  • I still take just as many photos as I ever did but I am now completely bored with modern cameras, the problem is that they are all so good now, and the advancements made recently are of no ...
  • Exactly, I can't see any point in viewing sample galleries, if you like the look of the camera and its price/features, buy it, then if you regret it, return it or Ebay it, reviews are only any use...

  • Well I look at it this way, for £150 I bought a pristine canon G1X (the original), it has DSLR IQ from a sensor almost as big as APS-C, it is great in low light and has a great 4x optical lens ...
  • The Windows O/S still does everything I need, everything still works even on Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 10 is still supported although 8.1 is not but it doesn't seem to matter because ...
  • A 950 or a 930 can be bought for next to no money now, the camera is great on both, if you run a 930 with wp8.1 you get HERE maps, email works great, screens are great, whatsapp still works ...
  • I am still using WP8.1, everything I need still works even Whatsapp, I was using WP10 but 8.1 seems just as good, so I am hoping for a few more years yet  (on 2 phones)
  • Personally I think these shots look great, whats the problem ? there are a huge number of adjustments that can be made from default, I am a JPEG shooter exclusively and I never shoot at default...

  • My first ever digital photo with a Kodak DC280 (2.1mp) this was the first one I ever took
  • Totally agree, and I have even bought really old digital cameras (2005 which is ancient) and they are virtually pristine, I recently fancied getting an APS-C Sony R1 with that amazing lens again ...
  • Replied in You're welcome
    I did buy a brand new motorcycle recently but that was because there are virtually no good used ones available ever (its a Czech 2 stroke twin, a Jawa)  and I have no intention of ever selling it, ...
  • Replied in And Ebay is FUN
    The other thing is buying something used that you couldn't afford when it was the latest and greatest is great fun, and really cool if its coming from somewhere remote I just had some motorcycle ...
