I recently encountered a thread on one of my favourite forums in which someone was asking for opinions on a Canon EOS-60D package he'd seen on ebay.

The new terms and conditions issued this week by Instagram caused a firestorm of public opinion. Instagram responded to clarify; but have they? What if you make your living from your images?

With a 4/3 sensor, 4K recording and a Leica lens that should really cost more than the camera itself, this is a pretty amazing camera. There may be better ones costing a lot more, but for the money, Neil Roberts thinks the LX100 is a great buy
