You've booked a prostitute for your first lay?

Apologies Sir, very busy at FB and with my photography these days. When I saw you start the thread I thought to myself you must be so excited because you are looking forward to sitting under an apple tree and having an apple fall off and hit you on the head. :)

Even better camera on the new one.

Yes utterly stoopid. 450 or less with wi-fi and gps, if you want a camera and buy a cheap phone to go with it. Do not be a clutz all your life. (https://cnet2.cbsistatic.com/img/PiyySAh0hmCpxR74IwtbdW1qNtY=/770x433/2015/09/08/a1dc7ddd-c735-4ee6-85b9-5725600d75b5/nikon-coolpix-p900-18.jpg)

That sort of says something.

Too wrapped up with your apple addiction Sir to see common sense.  I can take pictures of the invisible in front of my nose and on the horizon with my "overpriced Nikon" . I do look forward to seeing what you can take with your particular piece of overpriced fashinista accessory item. Otherwise I use what is called a phone to talk to people. Tell me is your overpriced piece of crap you are awaiting capable of burst shooting sixty framesin half a second? I think not, though you applaud it's pathetic qualities as a camera. You carry on in your delusional world. Just take comfort for signing up hook line and sinker to the brand. Some people may give you credence. I, however, am not impressed.

This is bollox. Could be taken with anything. Least of all an overpriced piece of sheit which is a phone. Try Venus or Saturn or the craters on the moon, or for sixty quid an attachment which lets you take a full frame picture focusing down such that 3mm fills the frame! Carry on suckers! ;) At least you can make a phone call, take solace in that. Perhaps you may wish to phone people to tell them what a wonderful click you took  :ROFL: Whilst I am at it get a toilet roll to boost the shitty volume from yer phones when playing music oh but apple does it wirelesly with degraded quality ;) W@nkers.

for those who may consider getting this from the states

https://www.myus.com/ (https://www.myus.com/)

They will give you an address in the USA where you can have items shipped to then they send them on to you

Brought 2 docking stations for my mp3 player recently for $79 each in the us (they were still selling for original 350 in the UK) with $22 postage added by myus.  Import tax 24 from UPS (but the site can do things to get round this) so still a bargain.

Sold the second on ebay for 200 :)

Can I just say I have never got on with iAnything?

Whenever I have tried it has led to iAnguish.

Sadly I have never had enough iCash to iPay iPrices so for all their faults it's Windows and Android for me because 1) I know what I doing (more or less) and 2) so much cheaper it's daft.

I'd expect so much more than a phone could ever give me for 1k notes.

Anybody who buys one is a bit deranged, I reckon. Just like those nutters who'll pay crazy money for a pair of trainers... No sense to it.

I use an iphone 6, (I think) it's a hand-me-down. I have never bought, nor will ever buy a new mobile. There are always so many mugs (my kids) who upgrade, i'll take one of theirs when I need one.
Upgrades are not as regular as they used to be though, thankfully.

These are funny.
