my awkward explanations and allow non English speakers to follow the information.
I find that pure text pushes people away from doing things, if they can see each step,
people can judge for themselves as to whether they think they can do it.
1 picture can explain more, explain quicker and explain in more detail than
any amount of words. 1 picture with a photoshopped arrow is even better.
I don't get asked what camera I use about 3 or 4 times a week so i'll tell you anyway.
I started with a Konica Minolta Dimage Z5
This camera was bought in August 2005 and it has served me well, it replaced a 2MP camera which was crap but didn't have super macro. I have found that taking extremely close up shots really helps define some of the How2s.
Back then, it cost me about £300 but it has easily payed for itself by helping so many.
This was replaced by a Canon Powershot A700 which I got on Ebay for about £70.
It gives better pictures, the firmware can be hacked and it's smaller.
That was replaced by a Canon Powershot A720is which is what I have used ever until early 2014.
I used an Eye-fi wireless SD card to save hassle transfering photos.
My current camera is a Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100.
It's slow to start, over complicated, the wireless file sending is hit and miss, the transfer
software is terrible and all the unnecessary Android shit on it really drains the battery quickly.
However, the quality of the photos is excellent and when everything is working, it's great.
24" Apple iMac. It pisses all over every PC I have ever owned.
It has been so little hassle unlike all the PCs.
Even after 7 years it is still going strong.
Despite it still working, I replaced it with a 27" iMac and a 32" LG Thunderbolt monitor.
I needed more screen space and upgrading the 24" iMac to Mavericks caused a few problems.
This is all backed up daily onto a 12TB Drobo RAID box.

Living on your own has its advantages. I have a workshop with all the smart stuff in it and an office full of projects.
