I've used both iPad and Android tablets (multiple brands). I got tired of my iPad because I did not like the need for iTunes and the general "locked down" nature of the thing. I wanted to get a device that would do what I wanted without having to buy apps or "jailbreaking" to circumvent Apples likes and dislikes of what the other 90% of the World thinks is normal. Don't get me wrong, it's a great device, quality build etc but just not for me.

After messing around with multiple Android tablets (mainly cheap Chinese jobs bought while working out there) I finally caved in and bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. This is the 2nd best Android tab I've used so far and IIRC, is distinguished from the Nexus by the fact it has an SD card slot so you can take it from 16Gb to 48Gb for about £12. Look at the price difference between a 16Gb and 32Gb iPad if you want to know what a big advantage that is.

I say it is the 2nd best tab I've used simply because I rather stupidly left it on a plane last week and am now the proud owner of Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 as the Tab 2 is end of life and our supplier had none left. So, I'd say have a play with both models and see if you like either. Tab 2's are pretty cheap now as stores are trying to clear them. However, as Linda says, just make sure that SWMBO has not got her heart set on an iPad because sometimes, these issues are more than just technical ;)

Hi Jonathan

Thanks for the insight and perspective especially re SD expansion :D which size Tab 3 did you get? As the 8 inch we saw looked a nice high res screen for a device that is still just about pocketable (at a good price point for 16GB model)??? I take your point about "iPad" naming but as it stands now it was at the time mentioned (I am sure :lol: ??? ) more a case of that was the only tab 'name' she knew the name of ;)


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Love it. The HDR is quite subtle and not overcooked at all -- very well done! The different shadow positions (due to the 360-degree coverage) messes with the head.

Thanks, I don't like overcooked HDRs at all so I always try to keep it subtle, just enough to lift the shadows and dim the highlights. :)

It's Ironbridge Penel. There are a few spots to take different photos, but I work 6 days a week so I can't get there when it's light at the moment.

I always go for 10" tablets because I want a clear delineation between phone, tablet and laptop. Phone is 5", tablet 10" and lappy is 15". What's the point of a 5" phone and a 7" tablet? Of course, if you don't use a smartphone or have a small screen one, then a 7"/8" tablet makes more sense (and more so if your eyesight is not as cr*p as mine!)

The six dogs went really well, although it was a long old day for me (and my dogs who were very patient shut in different parts of the house) - she arrived about 11am and left at 530, we had lots of breaks though and it was great fun. I"ve only had time to process a few of the shots - we didn't shoot any of the dogs together, all singly which was a relief as they were all extremely high energy and bouncing around as you will see when I post shots later on!

Here's a couple of more relaxed ones for starters!

Funny you've pointed these out as I did think that after. I recently got hold on a book that came into my work and in it is some images from the early 60's (I think) with a low cloud base over the bridge. Everything in the photo is still there today bar a few modern bits like what you mentioned. I'm just waiting for the weather to get worse so I can get the same photo... I'll do a comparison if anyone is interested.:)

I have no idea which studio lights to get - I've spent hours and hours reading about it and am even more confused than before now! The flashes are fine - always have been, as long as there's no fast movement…. :confused: which I know should not be the case…. I know that flash should freeze movement but it doesn't seem to ...

I can't be of much help on the studio lights I'm afraid. I looked into them a couple of years ago, but didn't bother in the end.

If you're getting any motion blur at all, it's just down to ambient light. I think I mentioned it before, but shoot first without the flashes and adjust the settings till your shot is more or less black. Then turn the flashes on and increase the power until you get the light you're looking for.
