Said bye to my Sigma 50-500 yesterday, it's gone to Sigma to get calibrated so fingers crossed that sorts out the focus issue...

In the mean time, I have my old 100-400 back though! :)

Morning all. I hope everyone had/is having a great Christmas! I guess I am another of those that has not done much photo wise this year so struggling to come up with a worthy entry for SOTY.

As always, this depends largely on what you want to do but for Word like stuff, Polaris office is free and excellent as is Kingsoft Office. Other apps that I like are:

1. All the catchup TV apps - iPlayer, 4OD, Demand 5, ITV Player, SkyGo (if you have a Sky subscription)
2. TuneIn Radio - great for listening to UK and foreign stations Cindy like to listen to Jacaranda in Pretoria as the music is good and the weather forecasts are better than ours!!). Also great for listening to UK stations when abroad
3. Evernote - keep to-do lists synced across all your devices - Windows, iPhone, Android
4. Amazon Kindle
5. OneCast - best free podcast app out there
6. MX Player - best movie player app
7. ES File Explorer - best file management app
8. Google Drive and/or Dropbox - good for backing up important stuff from any device and being able to access it on any device
9. Avast Anti Virus and anti theft
10. Swiftkey - paid for keyboard app. Free trial available. Beats the pants off any built in keyboards and certainly the best £2.99 you will spend on your tablet!

Other staples should be, Skype, Chrome, Facebook,Flipboard, 500px, Netflix (if you have a subscription), IMDb.

After that, most of what I have is specific to my foriegn travels - Worldmate, XE currency converter, World Clock plus various public transport and taxi apps for sundry foreign cities.

Looks like the ballhead of my Manfrotto tripod has packed up, just in time for the holidays! :( No matter how much I tighten the Friction knobs it makes no difference, boo. Aside from that gripe, Merry Christmas everyone, hope you and your respective families have a very happy holiday season!

Pop it in the post to me if you like and ill take a look at it for you.

I'm sure I'm just being naive but am a bit fed up about a photo I have on a stock site, has sold twice - earning me $2.13. It's in a very popular dog book 8 times, no credit to me etc. :confused:

the problem with stock sites like shutterstock is they sell volume not quality so the photos are sold cheap but can still be used in commercial runs, Getty and Stocksy my stuff sells for a higher price as they are priced for what they are intended for, istock, shutterstock etc are not, but to be on the safe side email Shutter and ask them, they are quite quick to look into it and get back to you..

Sounds about right. That is the nature of that particular beast... :neutral:

That is why if you go down the stock route Stocksy, which I mentioned a while back, may be a better option for you.
