Hello everyone!

In my family we always do this little tradition where we all wish for gifts and each of us help each other make them come true. I thought it would be appropriate to bring this to cameralabs, so if you want, post your wish-lists and using the cameralabs affiliate stores (hint, hint, :wink: :wink:) we find the best prices for each other. :)

If you want to participate, just post!

I voted for lenses, but having just played all weekend with an Asus Eee PC, I think that might be going on my Christmas list!

I wish Nikonians and Canonites could put their differences aside and enter the good will spirit of the season so that a new era of peace and mutual understanding would ensue.

Yeah, that will be the day... :twisted:

According to the Urban Dictionary:

Nikonian: A person who photographs with a Nikon camera, and is convinced it's tha bomb. In reality, Nikon has been really slipping in optical performance since the mid 1970s. Today, even Canon and Olympus Zuiko are pulling well ahead in technical specifications. Plus, the results are usually pretty bland. Only a nikonian would be convinced that a $150 lens is "top of the line".

Canonite: A person who takes photographs with a Canon camera. These people usually think that features out-weigh optical quality. They will buy a $1200 body, and slap a cheap lens on it, and a cheap flash. But they feel that the $1200 body they bought will save them from their poor optical choices. "I got this cool Tamron lens, it was only $150, and it's a 2.4/24-80. Good thing I shoot canon!"

On a more serious note, I'd like a body only Nikon D80. So I guess that qualifies as "a new camera". :)

I got the new camera in summer and a new lens a couple of days ago so I can't be greedy....I'd like a round-the-world air ticket visiting 10 destinations of my choice :)

Gordon, is it really that good? I must say I'm extremely tempted even though I don't really need it. It fulfils a definite gadget requirement :)

I don't really need any more camera gear at the moment..... so my wish for Christmas is for myself and my family, my friends and all on Camera Labs continued good health and peace throughout the world.

Roy, I'm glad one of us said that - just wish it had been me!

So, er, back to the consumerism!

Phil, the Eee PC is certainly far from perfect, but it's the best - dare I say - PDA I've tested. The genius lies in equipping it with a sufficiently normal OS that you can do proper things with it. So the browser works with most sites, the Office apps open everything, the comms programs aren't compromised, and the ports will talk to almost anything you connect.

I installed GIMP on it, updated Skype to work with the webcam, and used it to copy files from SD cards to an external port-powered hard disk.

I wouldn't replace my laptop with it, but I do think I'd end up carrying the Eee PC on most of my trips. And it's a great gadget to play with.

I'll write more about it in the near future...

Gordon
