So I'm basically stuck here, I'm going to be purchasing myself a present, but can't decide which to get as I'm only going to go for one, with the prices being very similar (within £100). Bear in mind what I currently own: -Core i7 15" MacBook Pro. -iPhone 4 16GB. Camera: -FujiFilm S8000FD. It's old..ish, and only 8MP but like Apple have said, MP's aren't everything, as I've managed to take some stunning shots with this camera, with the quality ending up better than my friends 450D. So neither are needed.. But as everyone knows its nice to get yourself a gift. I go on holiday a lot with friends and family abroad (8 times a year or so, usually 2 weeks at a time) so I'm flying a lot, so I guess the iPad would be nice for movies with the larger screen, and the battery(we also like to play a lot of board games on my iPhone when we're in casual settings such as beergardens in Germany). I also like the fact that it's unlocked unlike my iPhone, so when I am abroad (I travel to Germany for the majority of my holidays [4 or 5/year including a 4 week trip in august] so the ability to purchase an internet sim over there would be nice.) However when you consider my holidays (mainland europe, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Spain, and of course UK) then I guess the quality of the new 550D/T2i could also be of great benefit, I've always been interested in getting a DSLR, but as I've never taken any course in photography it's just been a hobby, and I wouldn't be looking to take it any further than a hobby, it's just something I really love doing. As I said, my S8000FD may be old, it still takes some great shots, but I still adore the idea of a DSLR. Many of my shots are at high altitude when I go mountain climbing, many at Lago di Garda (one of my favourite spots), so basically you can get the idea they're all of country. But I just don't know which to get, both have benefits, both aren't NEEDED but would be liked, please discuss and help me decide! Many thanks in advance!
