  1. Bolded part seems like you need a phone... If you want interchangeable lenses, shallow depth of field and low light performance then you'll probably want a full frame sensor. The Sony A7 mk1 is quite cheap (relatively) second hand now, you should be able to pick one up with a lens for about £500.
  2. There's starting to be parallels to the Vega debacle now, but people seem to have more good will towards this ? I'd be wondering when the kickstarter money is going to run out and they can no longer fund development.
  3. How does your phone let you down/why is it crap ? Having insight into that will help to decide what kind of camera you need, or if you actually need one at all
  4. I've loved quite a few of them, but Type 4 holds a special place in my heart.
  5. Autofocus doesn't have to add size and weight. Something like the F80 is smaller and lighter than the F3 whilst packing in af, motordrive, matrix metering and a pop-up flash over the F3 for example. Granted you're not going to be knocking in tent pegs with the F80, but then it only costs around £40 for a body. I shoot with my F80 90% of the time now whilst my FE and F4 (and Mamiya 645 and C330) get left on the shelf. Anyhoo, if you just need aperture priority on your Nikon then there's a lot of cameras out there. If manual focus then also consider FE/FE2/FA in addition to the F3. I'd probably recommend the FA out of that lot as Nikon's matrix metering is so good you don't really need to think about exposure. If auto focus then F80 or F100. Both from the last days of film before the transition to digital and are the most advanced film cameras Nikon made alongside the F6. F80 is cheap, F100 a bit more expensive. If wanting to use both manual and auto-focus glass, then F4. There really isn't another camera like it in the Nikon line up.
  6. Is anyone else watching Man Like Mobeen ? Comedy series about a British Muslim in Birmingham trying to bring up his sister along with his two friends. Deals with amongst other things - Drug Dealing/ Gangs, arranged marriage, fascists, racism, knife crime, NHS, gammons and social media. Sometime serious, sometimes comedic and sometimes surreal. It's a bit rough around the edges at times, but it's full of heart and the characters are great with Uncle Shady being a particular favourite. Also has a great 90's hip-hop soundtrack. Best comedy series I've seen in a while. Available on iplayer and netflix.
  7. Watched the first episode and can't help but feel it's aimed at teenage boys in a Starz kinda way. Is it first episode of a new series syndrome, or is the first episode representative of the series ? Also, the extent to which Bruce Lee's mannerisms are copied is a bit silly. I can understand the lead character doing it, but when the guy he's fighting is also copying Bruce it just ends up looking silly. Like a Bruce Lee cover's band.
  8. I guess it depends on what you’re after in a camera ? Features ? Collectability?
  9. As @FishyFish says id factor in a price of +20% to deal with any customs charges. Unless you can’t wait I’d keep an eye on the usual sites like Ffordes and WYCameras, you shouldn’t have to pay over the odds for a F3. Quite surprised how much F3’s are going for now to be honest though, there’s other cameras I’d rather have for that price
  10. Wasn't the show supposed to be about the after effects of the destruction of Romulus and their effect on Picard ? Daughter of Tom Hardy Picard ?
  11. Quite looking forward to this, I haven't had a console under the telly for an age. Shame no Galaga '88 though
  12. Ask Colatron on Instagram ? Looks amazing on his post.
  13. Season 14 still not aired in the UK or available to buy. I haven't had to go to the high seas for anything for an age now...
  14. I don't go out with a particular mindset. When I'm out in Birmingham with my camera I'll do street, portraits, landscapes, abstracts etc - whatever is interesting.
