    With full acknowledgement from the govmt too, that it is going to take $ millions to have something brighter with more energy than kipo at Port Augusta. :rayof

    What did you take these pics with? Something better than a phone I think. And any post processing involved? Excellent effect. Looking for a new camera at present for travel next year, so I'm taking an interest right now.

    I'm guessing it was a phone camera, Samsung Galaxy S7 Egde, with some post processing in Adobe Photoshop CS3. The quality of phone cameras has come a long way in the last few years.

    TwoUp and Kevin67, yep Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, which has a high quality 12 mega pixel camera that takes brilliant photo and video. All shots were enhanced slightly to bring out the colour and detail, nothing really tricky though. The crane shots were tweaked in Photomatrix and the last two were given a small saturation boost in Photoshop CS3. It is far easier than carrying around a DSLR although there is some very good one shot colour cameras now for a good price. Get one with a zoomable lens as it can help with some shots although you must take care to not bash the lens about or it will stop working.

    They have good deals on Italian sparkling water by the carton , the helmets would be ok for curry munchers delivering uberfood on a scooter

    I have some of their riding socks, (like the long walk socks with sandals I had to wear as a kid, but thicker) great in winter.

    Aiming to get a Canon G5X which has the larger 1" sensor, zoom lens, and small enough to fit easily in a coat pocket. My sister has one and definitely a cut above the point&shoot compacts.
