    **** The Official Samsung Galaxy S22 Family Thread ****

    I would imagine the "free" one will get blocked eventually from its imei if not returned.

    **** The Official Samsung Galaxy S22 Family Thread ****

    I wonder if it is because I cancelled my upgrade then reordered. I initially ordered the 128gb as an upgrade (they only had that). Later on the 256gb appeared for the same price (128gb was now cheaper). I rung up and they cancelled the upgrade then added in a new order for the 256gb. I received...

    **** The Official Samsung Galaxy S22 Family Thread ****

    I received two parcels (like some others on here). I saw on the dpd tracking I had two and wondered why. Seems I have two phones now! Will need to contact EE about this.

    **** The Official Samsung Galaxy S22 Family Thread ****

    Mine does this, it appears for a brief moment when you unlock. Although I didn't intend to use natural. It is fine when in vivid.

    Fuji X Series

    I am after a camera more along the XT or Sony Alpha range. Interchangeable lenses. It does not have to be pocketable, happy to carry it/clip to my backpack strap. I do like your photos. Nice to see what the XT can do and the lens is fairly cheap too considering the fuji lenses I looked at for...

    Fuji X Series

    I've been thinking about buying a fuji for mostly landscape photography during hiking and when on holiday. It's been between a fuji and perhaps a full frame Sony alpha. Possibly the A7iii. Maybe see what the black Friday or Christmas deals will be for both. It would be my first camera and I've...

    The Sony A73/A7R3/A7S3/A9 Thread

    I was leaning towards the Sony more for landscape photography. The fuji does seem to be loved though.

    The Sony A73/A7R3/A7S3/A9 Thread

    Been waiting for the A7IV. Looking to buy my first camera. I think it was between that and a fuji xt4.

    Swapping from halogen spotlights to LEDs

    I am not sure where the transformers are. Maybe close to the bulb itself. I am in a modern-ish flat (2004). If the transformers can't be pulled through the hole, I would rather not open up the ceiling :p. I don't know if it's a transformer per halogen bulb, or per light switch etc. I have two...

    Swapping from halogen spotlights to LEDs

    I currently have 17 (!) of these halogen spotlights (MR16/ gu5.3 I think they are, 12V) that are 50W each. I want to change these to LEDs. A couple of years ago I swapped one out with an LED (12 v also) to see what it was like. It flickered, burnt and then went off straight away so went back to...

    CVs are tedious

    No more Matlab? Would like to think when I taught you it in your first year of engineering it would serve you well ;). I've not used Matlab in years though. Mostly C++ these days, bit of Python.

    Camera for hiking

    What about lenses too? To take an example, say I can get an 18-55mm lense, or an 18-100mm lense (made up numbers). Better to get the latter due to the extra range? Obviously the higher focal lengths are larger and can be impractical. I am just wondering about lenses and what I would need. I...

    Camera for hiking

    Second hand is a good idea. Where are the places to look? Obviously not ebay . Did do a quick Google and there's several although not sure how reputable some places are unless it's also a high street shop.

    Camera for hiking

    I think I would want one that is weather sealed. Although they all seem to be in the 1k price range and above. All useful advice thank you. I'm still googling lots and doing my research. Haven't really come up with any potential candidates yet to purchase.

    Camera for hiking

    What do you use? I see Fuji does an XT range. Is it a waste of money for a newbie to get a mid range camera say like an xt 4?

    Camera for hiking

    Hey all. I do a lot of hiking in the UK, into the Peak District etc. Stunning scenery and I like taking photos, which I currently do on my phone. I am looking at getting a proper camera to take with me as really a phone camera doesn't do justice and I'd like something for better photos and...

    New "Commuting" jacket

    I have a nice down and goretex coat from Arc'teryx - camosun. Looks good and I've never felt cold in it. I wear just a t shirt underneath it most of the time. Warm straight away when I step outside. Expensive yes but if it lasts 5 years at least will be a worthy investment. It's windproof and...

    Spec me a winter jacket

    Ordered this on Thursday https://www.jack-wolfskin.co.uk/lakota-jacket/1203792-6350002.html. Been looking for a new winter coat that isn't big and crazy like my Fjallraven parka. The parka is good, very warm, never feel cold but it's big and bulky. More for 0 and below temperatures. I find...
