    "Smartphone Cameras Will Be Superior to SLRs by 2024" - Sony

    When I go on treks and the sort, you want to capture landscapes, the folk with you, max zoom for birding, protection from dust and rain and humidity, low light. If the tiny lenses in phones work then tech is already there for incredible photos from a dedicated camera. Actually, this discussion...

    "Smartphone Cameras Will Be Superior to SLRs by 2024" - Sony

    I'd like to go the other direction and put the improved algorithms, sensors and processors in into the p&s cameras, MFT, bridge and SLR's. However, Sony and Samsung are the biggest sensor makers by far. So, it might in fact be a business decision on their preferring to focus on phones, coz they...

    Cooking Thread

    After moving out of India, I started missing the food so much that I started trying to cook. Now it's turned into one of the most satisfying hobbies even though I'm mediocre at it. Who else here loves cooking? (and no I don't mean meth)

    A TV series but I highly recommend Rubicon. It was such a travesty that it never got the second season it so deserved. Marathon Man was amazing too.

    Any aquarists here?

    The betta evolved from naturally cramped environments but bowls are bad regardless and they don't like powerful water circulation or large water changes. Even 1.5'x1'x1' should be ok and you can easily diy these things yourself if you have the time. Put in some rocks and plants and run the...

    Where is our gratitude list thread?

    I think a lot of people have misconceptions about what 12 step is about (myself included in the past), and view sobriety and moderation as an act of self will and strength of character. And I know plenty of people who live bitter and resentful lives without having ever tried any mind altering stuff.

    Where is our gratitude list thread?

    I am in Canada so don't know of any groups in India that are English speaking but will definitely DM if I come across any. No Kolkata based groups? I am fairly new to recovery but find the NA book a much better read than the og AA one.

    Please suggest some anime movies that have a similar vibe to Makoto Shinkai movies

    Not anime but I'd recommend Linda Linda Linda and Tennen Kokekko. Sangetsu no Lion might also be to your liking.
