My husband and I decided not to give each other presents this year - we do that the whole year  ;)
I gave myself a most wonderful present - my D700 :)

However Christmas Eve was spent with family (12 of us) and the best bit was my godson, 14 year old Philipp, who played a medly of Carols on his trombone - just for me  :stup:

I got a copy of Tom Angs Digital Photography Masterclass which looks like a good read.

I also got some filters too which I've been meaning to get for a while.

Nothing truely photographic but a super little netbook that sits nicely in the lid of my camera bag so an extra 100+gb of storage for pictures when needed and a preview screen worth looking at.... in other words exactly what I wanted - and more smellies and sweets than I'll ever need.

Not a very good Christmas photowise. Two gifts both given with the best of intentions I know.

1. Don McCullin's book 'In England'. Already have a well thumbed copy. Still I take solace from the fact that my grandson who sent it me has got an eye for super images!

2. What I would call the photographic equivalent of that gadget that removes fluff balls from woolly jumpers, a digital photo frame. ::) What the hell are they all about. My wife has decreed I can put it anywhere where it can't be seen. I'll put it in the sideboard drawer and get it out and plug it in when the person who gave it me comes visiting :doh:

My parents do not have computers, nor do they want one - too complicated. The original Suffolk Bumpkins still work with Slide Rules, pencil and paper. They're still impressed by remote control on a TV :-\
They live in accommodation with little space to spare - so for them, a digital photo frame is actually a good thing as it saves cluttering up the place with lots of photo albums etc.
Easy to add pictures and best of all - it only costs them a penny or two every month when they get it out to look at the pictures.

As with other things - horses for courses. For you Alan - and your style of picture presentation - it must the Satan's Spawn. For my parents - it is the photographic answer to their prayers.
Though secretly i think they still try to turn the page when looking  :2funny:

I dunno, what's worse, what you think they think of you, or what you think they're trying to do to you. I got a stocking full of chocolate, I'm diabetic. :'(

why dont you want it seen? dont you have a load of pics you only look at now and then? i'd love one.. i bought one for my parents .. who have finally got to grips with the compact they treated themselves to in the summer having failed to appreciate the joy of my old fuji 602!.. they are thrilled with the frame and have rotating pics of the grandkids to make them smile..
i'm happy with anything anybody took the time trouble and money to buy me..
but the main gift was watching the little ones open their presents and hearing 6yr old ellie on the phone breathlessly telling me santa has been!
