It's right beside the train station.

The door's always open for another time, even if you just want to get out of Chch for a weekend or something.

Thanks Tim :)

Does anyone have anyone in the US who can purchase me a itunes card (us) so i can purchase some tv programs via itunes...

Yep - I live here, and have NZ bank account. If you had let me know Sunday - a local store was running $25 cards for $20 (fathers day) ... The way I've done it for friends - I buy on my NZ credit card in store, and let you know how much it works out to be, and you transfer to my NZ bank a/c.

Pm me the details of how much you want.

It can be done online, right? I have a US credit card and bank accounts in both countries, so it should be very easy. (If necessary, I can also use my VPN to make Apple think I'm in California.)

But are you sure that once you have the card, Apple will actually let you download the stuff? Some companies look at your IP address and get all snooty if you're from the "wrong" part of the world.

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

I met an interesting guy this evening, friend of a friend. He has a 5D and 1Ds III (doesn't like the 5DII for some reason), and uses them for mining and industrial type work, as a consultant. Lenses include 400mm and 600mm (he wasn't sure which ones), as well as 24-105, because he can't always get close enough to the stuff he needs to shoot underground. He regularly loses cameras and lenses in mines and off the side of boats, and gets new ones. Canon gives him loaner and replacement gear pretty quick - he has no idea what CPS is. He doesn't know an aperture from his elbow, but gets the photos he needs and that's all that matters. The cost of cameras means nothing to him. Insurance, work, and customers pay. Awesome guy, reminds me of action man, totally down to earth and good to have a beer with. I thought you guys might be interested to hear about the types of guys that use cameras purely as a tool.

Fixed ;) I bet he uses green square mode.

Jokes aside though, I bet the pictures have no creativity whatsoever. Plenty of media personnel like this - eg get issued a 1DS+300 2.8 IS and told to go shoot the racing.

Now, something totally different.

Tim, I think you wear contacts?? I'm finding my glasses to be a real pain to work with and my currant pair are broken at present. Do you use daily, weekly or monthly lenses? Any other tips, helpfull hints you can think off?

I have an appointment with the optometrist in the morning and possibly would go with contacts as well as a replacement pair of glasses.

Hmmm, that's a bit of a bugger :( Frequently in very dusty environments, you get dust under the lens presumably.

Yip, and they dry out. Makes them VERY uncomfortable.

May still get some, use glasses for dusty environments, contacts for roofing, photography etc.

Using the view finder with glasses is hopeless but need them for adjusting settings etc.

Agree with that Moppie, dry contacts are the worst feeling.

Just got back from a few days down south for work, stayed in Queenstown and Christchurch. I feel for you guys in Christchurch. I didn't really grasp the scale of the damage until my mate took me for a drive out to Sumner/Redcliffs and into the CBD....some pretty scary stuff, my thoughts are with you. Took a few photos, not the best but photos nonetheless.
