Yes. Go pro hero 4 black edition ftw. 4k. Amazon deal for 328 right now. Get the right mounts too (board, bike, dashcam or whatever)

Would anyone be interested in a nikon 18-200mm lens? Only a small amount of cosmetic damage to the logo due to abrasion. I'm going into the mirrorless/rangefinder world.

Is there much difference between a Joby Gorillapod and buying a cheap copy off aliexpress? Dunno how much use it'll get so trying to work out if the extra tenner is worth it if it just sits in a drawer. (no pikey)

Not that I know of, at least not one that comprehensive. Triggertrap will do most of those features… except the wireless bit.

Sony's wifi enabled cameras allow remote trigger using an app, and one or two other features.

Been looking at getting myself a camera, and it's probably the right time to strike in the new year sales. I'm mainly interested in photographing landscapes/scenery and architecture. Recommendations appreciated - any stonking deals floating about at the minute? Budget of £200-250 (don't want to spend more at this stage really). Thanks

I've got X-100S. I really like the camera, much prefer it to big DSLR's I've had. I have some minor complaints, mostly speed of autofocus, but it really hasn't hindered me too much. Battery life is pretty bad, but nothing a few extra batteries can't solve. I'm pretty sure the newer models address some of the focal issues.

here's my portfolio site which I'm working on, everything taken on x-100s - http://www.frankfrumento.com

Cheers man. Looking at maybe an Xpro-1 or if I can get a job an XT-10. How much did you pay for your X-100s? The fuji lenses are pretty expensive as well.

Nice portfolio btw some really cool shots.

Thanks guys. I have been playing around trying to find/tweak the best presets. Some are really looking close - need to experiment with what they look like when printed.

Darko - I think I paid like 425 second hand early last year.
