We have a housing for our S90... would it not be the same? They havent changed the S95 too much have they?

Enough to make the housings different I suspect. When I left work on Friday, Canon NZ's order system didn't list the new housing yet to cross check product codes. Some of the buttons are the opposite way round, subtle differences etc...

By all accounts the canon housing doesn't, one of the 3rd party one does, but very snugly.
Photo and video international have it listed on there site, otherwise haven't seen it anywhere else in NZ. I do know canon has released it though, besides got 2 months to get my grubby paws on a one.

Really looking forward to seeing this camera, should be arriving later this week. How do you like your S90?

TBH, with something like that, I'd always be using Canon's own housing or one of the even higher end models. It's got to be perfect for it, you only need one leak.

Nice. :cool:

Like it then?


I went to see the Brian Brake exhibition at Te Papa today with Bruce/tongmaster. Was lovely actually and very positive to see photography being given such a stage in the national museum, contrary to the common beliefs of many institutions that photography's not art. Also saw Chrissie/Her B4 there, but before we crossed paths as we filed around she'd vanished. :( Good to see the Welly gang turning out though. :D

Expensive selection of Lecias on display too, does nothing for my desire to have one... :confused::cry:

Anyone in Wellington between now and May *has* to go.


Cheers, Dave.

Aye, for sure for something like this I would only consider the genuine article.

Nice shot, is that the red ringed L or the older gold ringed (didn't need improvement) one?


Cheers, Paul.
If it moves, shoot it. If it shoots back, get a bigger lens.

Hey John, hows the new job?

It would be fair to say, I'm liking my new lights :cool:

Interesting catch-up -- you guys have been busy. Nice photos too!

Moppie, the new job is awesome... just can't fit too many hours in a day though:lol: I've probably done an average of 150kms a day introducing myself to my customers in Auckland, plus all the flying around to Welly & CCH. Good stuff all around. Good that you like your lights -- I need to do some experimenting with mine...


Tim, so what did TV you finally end up getting?


John;)

Believe... Work hard... and it will happen!

Well my weekend has consisted of making VM's for snow leopard and snow leopard server on my new laptop. A few linux distros as well.

Cant read native canon RAW files :(

I installed SL on a spare hdd in my regular machine, dual boot with Win7. Took me a while to get the installer to kick off (had to change the jumper to master on my IDE cd-rom drive - this took me a long time to work out lol).
What's it like to install in a VM? What does the server version do?

I got SL as vm image but SL svr I built from scratch all on VM7. Install easy once you have all the bits. Plenty of info out there. The biggest snag is that I can only get 128 VRAM and there is no way to adjust.
Server is just a full on SL bit like win server in the way it works.

Geez, that was cheap - I never thought I would see the day a 50"plasma would go below $3K! Congrats on the new toys -- enjoy!

That included a 3D Blu Ray player and 2 sets of 3D glasses, which you redeem directly from Samsung because of some promotion. It is pretty darn cheap. Since the PS3 does 3D blu ray i'll possibly sell the blu ray player, or give it to my gf.

It took about 4-5 hours last night to set it up, and it'll take more time to tweak it and get it all working perfectly. The Onkyo receiver has quite a few functions, plus i'm installing a powerline networking system tonight so the PS3 and TV can talk to the internet and my PC, wireless isn't cutting it. Plus a bit of work needs to be done in the lounge, then i'll have the TV wall mounted.

So I should keep the Samsung 3D BluRay player? Good to know, thanks :)

I'm running out of space for devices, cords, power points, and space to run everything!

Ah not sure how important that is realy. Havnt seen any 3D stuff on TV's.

PS3 is HDMI 1.3, 1080p 3D requires HDMI 1.4 is all.
