1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    ^ I've seen quite a few tourists using those to take photos of themselves in front of the kangaroo statues in King George Square.

    This might be of interest to any other SF members in Brisbane - apparently Brooks Brothers recently opened a stand-alone store in Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, stocking both men's and women's clothing. I assume that it has a larger range than the concession in DJs in the city.

    I remember at Uni, if you were a bit outsdoorsy it might have been de rigeur in some parts to wear your Berghaus boots around Campus.The idea was probably that you were sporty
    but not flash....

    I didn't though!

    I would go Sony, although I concede that the Fuji X100T is almost certainly the better camera. However, it's a lot bigger; the Sony is truly pocketable and is almost certainly the best digital camera of its size ever made; it's highly versatile, having a zoom lens as opposed to the Fuji's fixed 23mm prime lens; and incredibly for a camera of this size, it has a viewfinder. You will be able to capture all sorts of different images quickly and efficiently. The Fuji will give you better and more art-housey images but it will be more conspicuous and somewhat less versatile.

    I bought one, and I'm embarrassed to admit I bought it specifically to take fit selfies. It doesn't work, or at least, I haven't figured out how to make it work, for that application.

    I'm sure it's useful for something though. Mine cost about A$12 at Tianzifang in Shanghai. Just stating that fact to give you an idea about what they might actually be worth.

    I've been in the same boat, and have been looking at Camera's for the last few months, and ordered a MK1 RX100 last week. I came to the conclusion that the Fuji would be a waste, I have no real experience with photography, nor do I have the patience to sit down and learn how to use the camera, and will just end up using it for point and shoot. The only thing that disappoints me about it, is the lack of view finder, the Mark III has one though.

    Either will be good. I have the RX100 mk 1 which I love (traveled to Myanmar, Japan and Sri Lanka with it) and the mk III also has built in wifi. Ultimately, both the Sony and the Fuji are at the quality where it's more a case of what you do with the camera rather than the camera itself.

    Whatever you get, spend a few hours with it before you go off and get to know it well.

    If you do go with the Sony, get the Franiec grip to go with it.
