    A decent lab will do C-Type prints - where lasers burn the image onto light sensitive paper and they tend to pretty nice. Otherwise, home ink jet printers are pretty good, at least for colour. I do a lot of my own printing on a cheap Canon ink jet and quality for colour prints is pretty good as long as you use decent paper. I like Jessops (!) Satin 240gsm paper, does colour nicely and prints true B&W.

    To be honest, use the camera on your phone. A lot. You''ll always have it with you, stills quality is fine for the internets and A4 prints, and it'll take better video than the entry level digital cameras. Learn to anticipate when your kids do 'things'. Learn about composition and lighting. If after having it used it for a while you find it limiting, and know why you find it limiting, then look for something else. Keep in mind though that you won't always have it with you. I know a lot of people who have bought DSLRs to take photos of their kids, but end up taking the majority of photos with their phone as it's to hand. If however you're #buyer and want something shiny, then knock yourself out
  6. You've probably already made up your mind, but I'd just like to add to the people who've already said it - it picks up massively in the second half. The wife went from playing on her phone when it was on to forcing me to binge watch the last three episodes in one sitting. I liked all of the characters by the end which is no mean feat as a large number were annoying at the start. Really enjoyed it, looking forward to series 2

    @Naysonymous Barcelona is great isn't it ? Gracia district is probably my favourite for bar/cafe/restaurant hoping. There's a couple of camera shops in Barcelona that carry new and second hand - Casanova Foto and Nostalgic. I mostly go and stare, prices are far too high to actually buy anything.

    I switched to using Lightroom CC a while back now for the cloud storage and intergration between desktop, mobile and browser apps. Had zero issues* running CC on my 2015 11" Macbook Air with i5 and 4GB of ram. I suspected Adobe are putting more development into CC than Classic these days. *I'm mostly working with film scans and 16MP m4/3 RAW files, your experience may very with larger files.

    I think they've been watching The Orville - from that trailer they've stolen the turbo lift comedy guy idea from there.

    Marvel's Luke Cage - Netflix

    Yet to watch the final episode, but I think S2 has been great so far. One of my favourites of the Netflix / Marvel shows. (Black) Mariah has been great as the villain, and episode 10 in particular horrifying. Bushmaster's Copoeira fighting style has been breathtaking at times, with the episode 11 gave me goose bumps.

    @Scratchy Bollock Were you stalking the girl in the white top ? Ice cream cone shot is great.

    Second hand is usually fine, and I've bought most of my lenses second hand from online retailers. MPB usually have a good selection.
  15. After that IGG post I take it RCL will go into hiding ? Shame, I enjoyed their increasingly fantastical updates. Next stop the shareholders meeting ?
