Hey Leo, Raymond here from Melbourne, Australia -down under. I wanted to share a photo of one of my customers PC’s I got asked to come over and inspect regarding overheating issues.
This was 5 years worth of dust! A friendly reminder to everyone, clean your PC’s regularly!
Love your show Leo, I’d love to have a chat on the show but the time difference is a bit of a killer. Long time fan! I listen to your show every week!

10x zoom looks better than I’ve seen when others use zoom that high. Fascinating

I’ve had Mr Howell’s OnePlus Nord. Merelyjim on Twitter challenged me to shoot with it. My first attempt below.
When looking at the images after shootin’, I definitely saw that this camera was lacking vs the Pixel, Samsung, iPhone, etc. The 48MP setting doesn’t allow zooming. The macro feature is really bad. This 12MP version had zoom capability and actually focused nicely. Even though it’s not as crispy with clarity vs other cameras, it’s serviceable. I decided to focus stack a few shots via Photoshop on iPad. Then did remaining touch up in Lightroom mobile. At another time, I’ll actually snap some shots and view/process on my desktop.

Yes, that was the first time I’ve managed to take a half-way usable image with zoom over 3x on a smartphone.

Here’s one I took earlier today on my iPhone 11. No zoom.
