Love the colour one Adrian. I would try a crop that cuts out half of the pale foreground though.

Finally had a chance to play with the 2x on the 70-200 OS this weekend. 'Twas a bit "bracing" out there.....-4 at 10am when I got back to the house.

#1 was Saturday evening. Full zoom and wide open (f5.6 with the converter on),
ISO6400 hand held.

#2 was this morning (much brighter). Full zoom, wide open "grab shot" as the Buzzard took off from the gound. Hand held at ISO100. Slight crop in LR4.

This set-up is effectively a 640mm f5.6 lens and is testing me to the limits but I'm trying.

Both of them are quite stunning but the colour one just has the edge for me - its gorgeous.

Morning all, burning question of the day - which tablet?

Samsung
Nexus
Kindle Fire HD
iPad 2/3
iPad Mini
Other?

I'm looking for a tablet that I can use for photographic stuff as well as keeping me entertained with games/media etc. Thoughts?

As you have a Android phone, getting an Android tablet would mean you could share the apps and it would be similar to your phone.
The Samsung has a micro card slot (32Mb) so you can store music films etc on it.
The Kindle fire can be considered as not being full android and could be limited to Amazon.
iPad, I'll leave that to Chris :rolleyes:

I have a Samsung 7in Tab, I use the CR2 viewer when I'm out, its a lot easiser than looking at the back of the camera, better if you want to show someone the photo. carrying a 7in I find easier than a 10in. As its almost pocket size.
Best thing, is go to PC world and have a look at them.

morning Mike, well we have at work 15 Nexus 7's and only two haven't had problems so I cant say they are very reliable but not bad when you use them, had a surface to play with on Friday and again it was nice, win8 is quite nice but seems a bit lacking in apps etc.
Samsung Galaxy's are again nice and work well but we at work had so many failures we went and bought the Nexus7's which were not much better to be honest, no idea about the Kindle.
The thing I always notice with everyone at work is they all like all the tablets no matter what one they use and all have their favs, then they go and use an ipad they all seem more at home with them straight away, the user experience on the iPad is just so much more polished, IT have now decided that after lots of expensive trialling, that ipad minis are they way to go and believe me they hate with a passion Apple products but they just work and work well.
I dont think you could go wrong with any of them to be fair, you need to play with them all and see what suits you best..

Thanks for that Mark. I like the smaller form factor of the Nexus 7 and iPad mini. Will certainly have a play with as many as I can but I am leaning towards iPad mini from what I have been reading.

I have one (ipad mini) in front of me freshly delivered from LA by my little brother which is a very nice and unexpected pressy, I think that you need to try them form yourself, you have Android so you maybe best off with a Nexus, all I can say is I prefer the iPad, there is more apps available for it and it just seems smoother, more people move from Android tablets to iPads than the other way..

I wish I had a brother like yours!

I'm not averse to switching to iPad if it offers the best experience - and if it is the only tablet to run Sky Go too...

We have two iPad's here.. They work great, never frozen up, rebooted for no reason etc.. Kids use them no problem and clients really like being able to flick through their pictures on it and be able to zoom in/out and skip back and forward between shots!

If you have the Sky+ app and your box connected to the internet you can also control it through the app.. ;)

Mike - I have had an iPad for a couple of years now and other than Safari crashing like a drunk 17 year old in a Citroen Saxo, no USB, no Flash support (=crappy BBC website experience) and no micro SD slot, it has been excellent (seriously). I've seen Samsung tabs and they looked great and seem reliable but they are almost iPad money and, for me, that's not the point of Android. I've played with some cheap Chinese Android tabs the best of which was the Yuandao N90 (usually referred to here as the Window N90). I paid £120 in Shanghai for it but here the price seems higher.

I've never played with the Nexus but it looks good and I guess the Android ROM they run will be stable. Only downside for me from a first look at their website is no mention of expansion with SD cards.
