    The new-look AP, on sale from next Tuesday (April 24, in case you weren't sure) needs your input for a range of new features.
    We need you to come out with us On Assignment, your masterworks for our Gallery, the ones that didn't quite work for Garry McNamara's Critical Eye and your mobile phone snaps for Snapper's Diary.

    Go to AP News Pages for the full story

    Can we only use mobile phones for snappers diary or is it OK to use any camera to hand? I usually take snaps on a compact but I chiseled the crud off my phone 'lens' and took a snap with that to send in.

    Are you serious Damien? Us use mobile phones for snaps? We're keen photographers - that's why we're here. Next you will be reviewing mobile phones. ;)

    It's no laughing matter where I live. I have no problem understanding the German, Korean and Japanese gentlemen we get to meet at product launches, but the kids in our town are unintelligible. They all wear their trousers round their knees too.

    dazza.

    Oh Dear.

    I do hope that this kind of talk will never make into such a well established magazine such as "Amateur Photographer".

    One would never be able to purchase such an item.

    I know the forums are open to the public, but do we need this type of riff-raff speak in here?

    Quite right, Fen.

    I don't think AP should employ anyone to write for them who doesn't have several hyphens in their surname, one contituent of which MUST have a pronunciation very different to how it is spelled.

    Oh, forgot to say, the new AP arrived today and I'm very impresssed. The only thing I couldn't figure out is why in comparing the D200 with the Fuji S5 did they say the winner was the Canon 5D? (especially when it costs twice as nuch as the others)

    I see that AP have abandoned the old style Reader's Portfolio with payment of £50-00 per page in favour of the new style Reader Gallery with only one payment for Editor's choice and a MUG for the others. Really - are our "masterpieces" only worth a mug :D Or have I misinterpreted the small print?

    How can you test a non-Canon SLR without mentioning Canon do a better one? ;)

    It'll be for the newbies that don't already know /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I'm with Damien on the phone issue.

    My phone has as many pixels as my sony compact, its always with me, its always got a full battery and it ain't bust!!!

    Two years old and its knackered - can I say knackered or is knackered a no-no. Better not say knackered..

    Me camera's bust. and I've hardly used it!

    And if you ever have a car crash you'll be glad you had your mobile's camera with you when it comes to establishing blame in court!!! Plus I can msm my images to anyone or anywhere!

    My phone's got VGA resolution. It's a fantastic artistic tool as a result - nearly as good as a Disk camera in terms of lovely soft, noisy images that are highly Impressionistic.
