  1. I like those. Funnily enough was just browsing David Burnett's Holga photos which i've not seen before. https://www.davidburnett.com/gallery.html?gallery=Holga+Eye&folio=Galleries&vimeoUserID=&vimeoAlbumID=#/0
  2. Or alternatively they've run out of money and the keyboard is just a smoke screen for the delay whilst they try to get additional funding to enable them to release it.
  3. Not knowing much about it . Regardless, looks amazing.
  4. @Scratchy Bollock It depends I guess ? I've never really progressed beyond phone apps when needing to meter for long(er) exposures, and that was long before I learnt about reciprocity failure charts. This was phone metered
  5. I'd definitely go down the second hand route if you were considering Fuji on a budget. I buy all my cameras second hand, with MPB and CEX both been good on returns when the cameras have turned out to be duds. Ffordes (I've bought a lot of film camera gear from them, recommended) have a X-T20 with 16-50 for £500 https://www.ffordes.com/p/SOR-18-021278/mirrorless-fuji-x/x-t20-16-50mm-xc-silver
  6. Just as a counter point I'd go and have a look in your local Jessops, John Lewis etc. Half the thing for me with cameras is the ergonomics. Sony A6000 is a solid choice. At the cheaper end there's the Panasonic GX80, at the more expensive end there's Fuji's like the X-E and X-T series. Going second hand from somewhere like MPB, CEX, Ffordes, LCE (where you get a guarantee) opens up more options. Edit - Given that you mention street photography, I'd recommend a second hand Fuji (X-E1, X-E2. X-T1, X-T10, X-T20) as they offer minimum shutter speed on Auto-ISO. It's invaluable for street, and is something Panasonic, Olympus or Sony don't offer in that price range.
  7. Pacific Rim: Uprising / Independence Day: Resurgence; for similar reasons. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace / The Last Jedi The Hobbit films (although I've subsequently warmed to them, slightly).
  8. Are they trying to launch a second kickstarter before the first has delivered machines to backers ? If so it wouldn't be because they've spent all the original kickstarter money and need more cash to manufacture the original machines would it ?
  9. Avatar 4/5 Not watched it an age and holds up surprisingly well. Even feels kinda relevant given what's happening in Brazil
  10. There's also Finn's parentage mystery box. Will they be dumb enough to make him Lando's son ?
  11. It helps that frying pans keep getting used as weapons. At times it reminds me of a daytime soap, but with really good fight scenes. I love it.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. I've loved quite a few of them, but Type 4 holds a special place in my heart.
