    I'd just go to Jessops or similar and have a play with a few cameras. You could probably top trump the specs of the various cameras and compare the sensors on dxomark if you're a gear head, but in the end any of the cameras you've listed will be fine for what you want to do. Having said that the only one on your list I probably wouldn't bother with is the EOS R. It's tech is a generation behind Sony's and there isn't many native lenses for it. While it's a not a bad camera, it made the worst of 2018 lists for a few bloggers. Crop or full frame Canon DSLR or Sony mirrorless depending on your tastes.

    @choddo As you've not specified a specific usage, I guess it's for family, friends, holidays etc ? Any of those will be more than good enough for that, and you can get away with spending less on cheaper/older cameras should you want to. Have a play with a few at a shop ? Now that digital stills tech has matured I find ergonomics one of the main things when buying a new camera

    At the same place and feel the same. Has anyone taken a hit for the forum and watched further into the series ?

    For web pretty much anything from the past 10 years is fine. Difficult to recommend anything specific as it's mostly impossible to buy a bad camera from Nikon, Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Olympus or Fuji. For the majority of use cases digital stills camera tech matured a while ago, and it's only for niche uses and for video that improvements are still being made. I can only suggest having a play with some of the cameras in your local camera shop to see what you like and then an older version of that second hand from the likes of MPB as they come with a warranty.
  5. Up to the Doom Patrol episode and loving this, bit of surprise to be honest. Can't wait for the Doom Patrol series now
  6. Spectre was all over the shop. Excellent Day of the Dead opening that inspired Mexico to re-create the parade vs the dullest product placement car chase committed to film. Inspired casting of Monica Belluci vs her actual role as an 'Oh James' come bucket etc etc

    Doctor Who

    I wouldn't use the Brigadier Cyberman as a stick to beat Moffat with, Chibnall did far worse with the Torchwood Cyberwoman episode. I rewatched Rise of the Cybermen/ Age of Steel recently and it's aged a lot better than I thought it would do. Other than that I really enjoyed World Enough and Time/ Doctor Falls; the last Moffat series as a whole was a return to form shorn of all the Clara-isms. I need to re-watch Nightmare in Silver. I remember being disappointed with it considering how good Gaiman's Doctor's Wife was, probably deserves another chance.

Using the report abuse button and then select problem with a group it tells you to talk to the admin of the group :/ All the paedos going over to Flickr after being booted off Tumblr ?

    Doctor Who

    This I don't get. 9th/Rose, 11th/Amy/Rory and 12th/Bill/Nardole/Missy have all been great and I place them above the current crew. Yaz and Ryan don't really have much to do and feel like spare parts, and that's mostly because Graham increasingly appears to be Chibnall's Marty Stu fantasy about travelling with the doctor.

    Doctor Who

    I think that's been one of the biggest failures of the season. Chibnall stated at the start that he wanted a more diverse Tardis, but then failed Ryan and Yaz (especially) in the writing.

    First great episode of the series, really enjoyed that.

    Doctor Who

    Witchfinders felt perhaps more familiar than others in the series so far. It was a monster of the week filler episode that could of fitted into any of the previous seasons Apart from the Doctor's new found hesitance to interfere in history again, leading to a death. Two episodes left and the Christmas New Year's Day special and it feels like we're still waiting for the proper start of the series

    Doctor Who

    Viewing figures for this season are interesting. Still doing better than the past few Capaldi seasons, but shedding half a million viewers each week in a way that previous seasons haven't.
