The 'true cost of a photograph' article is interesting, but as one who occasionally publishes magazines, I'm tempted to point out that the vast majority of titles I've worked on have had a picture budget of precisely £0.00, and credit/exposure really are all that can be offered. Stock photography keeps the magazine industry afloat, and a special request to use a freelancer's image really is the kindest compliment an art director can offer. It turns from an interesting breakdown of the costs of a hobby wrongly perceived as being cheap, and into one of those 'grumble-grumble-publishing-is-full-of-billions-where's-my-cut' whinges. (For a start, more magazine editorial than the writer would believe possible is published on an unpaid basis).

I should probably go and post all this on that guy's site, but I imagine it wouldn't go down well.

Actually, the more I read it the less I'm interested. I think a large part of it is just him cock-jousting about his expensive camera and software.

I'd have myself a lumia 800 EXCEPT the camera is inferior to the N8.

You can better your N8 by upgrading the software to Anna.

Better still, go to dailymobile.se and follow instructions to flash your firmware to the leaked Belle 111.03.0609 (or even better a custom firmware like the.one89's, which is what i use) and enjoy amazing upgraded usability and functionality that you never had on the N8 before.

Its like getting a brand new phone without having to lay out any money, just time and downloading the Phoenix flashing software.

*cough* her N8 died when it got dropped into water, she's using my old 5800 for now. I, OTOH, still love my N8 and might just try that (got Anna already, it's nice)

A phone having a camera not as good as the N8 isn't a major problem though, all phones are in that position currently, and we don't really take enough photos to worry about it, the 5800 does fine.

Anna is SO OLD compared to Belle. I swear to god the difference is like having a new telephone.

Imagine having a Nokia without bars up the sides? Its staggeringly beautiful.

I use the.one's cfw, built on top of 111.03.0609 and its very clean, boots lightning fast, and if this mum of two/housewife can flash my phone, anyone can do it. Shout if you need help.

http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.php?topic=52888.0 is a good link to start. the screencaps show you how different Belle is to Anna, and there's tutorials etc on what to do / how to do it, etc.

I cannot believe that the stooping has gone this low

*Nothing* surprises me with that shower :(

Una Stubbs is awesome

She so is. I had a serious crush on her as a youth, she made Give Us A Clue my highlight of the week.
