Camera Review - Canon G9X

A few years ago I purchased a Canon Powershot S110 to supplement my DSLR, the idea being that I didn't have to pack/worry about the DSLR if I was going for a walk with the kids, going out to dinner with friends, etc. The plan was that it would be portable, and still produce a sufficient image qualit...

Re: FWC - Food / Wine / Coffee (beer can come too)

I never remember which white rabbit I like, probably because (I think) the white ale is heavier than the dark ale?

Canon S110

A few years old, but reasonably light use (4000 shots).

No marks, good condition, original box and accessories, blah blah blah.

$120

Re: Surface 4 / Win 10 and other MS stuff

I really wish Microsoft would get Windows 10 sorted for these uber-resolutions...

Finger print scanner in the new keyboards will give the geeks a big reason to upgrade their old keyboards.

Come back to me when Hello Windows is built into a phone!

Re: Home Automation (FOR TIGHTARSES!)

I'm not even sure Ash's idea is gold plating, more like a bit of spray paint here and there. From that you're talking about Ash, and with that sort of budget, you could get away with a bit of network cable, some strategically placed outlets for specific things like cameras, and some speaker wire - a...

Re: Building a home?

I'm late to this thread, but here's my 2c - Work out where the centre of your home is and build to that. Kitchen is common for a reason. - Work out what you value and build to that. Euge's 3 lists is a good idea. - I think space is often overrated. To a lot of people more space = more junk/clothes/c...

Re: quality cat3 cable

'Chunky' cables make no difference, chances are that if it connects the cable is fine. If you're having issues with your interwebz I'd be looking at your router or provider.

Re: quality cat3 cable

You mean one of these plugs? http://www.bunnings.com.au/jackson-modu ... g_p4360634

Bunnings/Jaycar will have them and cables.

If you ask me nicely, I can probably find a cable and plug for you in my box of shitty old electrical things which I've been meaning to throw out.

Re: Professional Amatuer Shots

I love the idea, and apart from the open window/plant/window locks (which could be easily cloned out) the current image looks.... good. Some thoughts: - I'd crop the image to be 7 window panels (1 central, then 3 either side). I think this will help with the symmetry of the image, and incidentally, ...
