    My Son has been using a Nikon d90 at uni and quite fancied one. Looking around and an MPB example in ’excellent’ condition with low shutter count seemed comparable with elsewhere. Ordered one along with an 18-105 lens also marked as ‘excellent’. Both arrived today when they should of and look to...

    Impossible pc question

    It’s just an old slow pc. She is awaiting a laptop from work but not sure when it will appear, lots of red tape and a large company so lots of staff to sort. Just seems a good time to update the home pc as it needs doing anyway. Even burning a cd from iTunes takes an eternity

    Impossible pc question

    the home pc is around 6 years old and only used for running photoshop, lightroom, Microsoft office and iTunes. With my wife now working from home it’s so slow that she’s threatening to throw it out of the window. To ensure she’s happy, and feeling less ‘stabby’ what sort of spec should I be...

    Best place to buy Genuine Canon Batteries ?

    Excellent thread. When I got my camera I bought a second battery which was just a cheap eBay or Amazon one as I don’t do much photography at the moment and the original Canon version was about £100. I’ve just noticed my original Canon battery wont charge so looking for another aftermarket one.
