    Thanks for the detailed responses! I'll check out those other suggestions too.

    Once again I’m in need of forum guidance but this time camera related; what’s the current forum best-buy camera up to £500?

    My girlfriend & I both quite fancy getting a DSLR – we’ve got a few friends that have them & the picture quality does just seem better than everything else we see. We’ve been to some really beautiful places recently & all our photos are crap quality (we’ve both only got smart phones atm) so we want something that’ll last a good few years & take nice pictures.

    My internet research has drawn me towards the Nikon D5300 w/18-55 lens kit that’s selling for about 440 on Amazon etc… As it’s a brand I’ve heard of & looks like what I’d expect to be getting for that kind of money – is this any good? Anything better for the money?

    Two of my workmates have got those Sony RX100’s that they say are “just as good as DSLR’s” – are cheap DSLR’s like the D5300 really not up to it & so we’d may as well go for a nice-ish compact like the Sony or will the Nikon beat it? Size/weight isn’t really a problem as we’ve always got back-packs full of miscellaneous rubbish with us anyway.

    I feel I know enough about bikes & musical instruments (my two main hobbies) to be able to guide people past the ripoffs/waste of money purchases but with cameras I have absolutely no clue! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Lovely watches! I tried one on when I was buying my SMPc (way out of budget but it's hard not to try one on while you're there) - really, really nice in person.

    Unlikely; I work for another of their subsidiaries & their cross-business cooperation is little-to-none. A vague idea of producers working together with broadcasters for mutual benefit was aired once but it was met with a collective "meh".

    I see, I'd best get out there & catch some more rats then.

    Is it just me or is there a bit of a flaw in the logic of the game in that there's no point in collecting/investing time in rare pokemon because it's impossible to collect enough of the same one to power it up to a decent level?

    Nearly every gym I see is held by a high level Hypno because Drowsee's are so common.

    Am I missing something in the game here regarding making a pokemon stronger without collecting lots of the same ones? I feel this is where the gyms come in but I can't work it out... (my Pokemon just get destroyed within seconds even at team-owned gyms).

    Good to know thank you (not that I've really done much with it thus far).

    Now it's available officially do you think those of us that downloaded it previously from elsewhere should uninstall & get it from the store?

    I assume all our pokemon/stats will still be there as it's stored on the servers...

    That's worked thank you!

    I downloaded it yesterday but couldn't seem to sign up for it - it said they were limiting the number of registrations; anyone know if there's some trick to get through to the registration bit or is it just a case of keep trying?
