I didn't get anything to explain what the mark was. Progear just sent an invoice. :rolleyes:

They sent an invoice with the camera? or the invoice to get the payment & go ahead with the repair?

Questions need to be asked as to what the issue is/was etc (goes away to check my 6D mirror.....)

to quote the email from progear

Your camera has arrived back all clean, Please see attached invoice as
Canon NZ deemed it not a warranty fault and have charged you the standard
min charge. Please let me know when you have paid this and I will get the
camera down to you ASAP.

Seems a bit odd. I'd be keen to find out what the issue was. Even if it's to prevent a reoccurance.

Now something different. I've never really used live-view. Tonight I was playing around with flash & thought I'd try it with live-view. Flash didn't go off. Any comment or have I got some setting wrong?
Is it a pre-flash (ETTI) issue (runs away to try manual)

EDIT Fixed, silly grunt to flash while in video mode :(

Chin up Si. I watched that Harbour Bridge Bungee earlier, very cool but where is the video of your jump??

I have it on Disc here somewhere. Not sure how to edit videos.

Wasn't aware the 6D has grunt recognition! Is it hard to get the timing right to sync with the shutter, or do you just do a series or grunts? How silly do you have to be? I assume piggy grunting would do it? :lol::lol::lol:

Moppie did a sterling job of reading Dave's words for Kirst at her funeral. In my opinion, they were the most moving words said that day. Dave's words left me with a very acute sense of Dave and Kirst's friendship. A friendship that has been tragically cut short. I can only begin to imagine what Dave is feeling. I have said it before and I'll say it again. Dave, I am so sorry.

I consider myself very lucky to have known Kirstine. I spent some interesting times with her where I got a glimpse into some of the difficulties she's had in her lifetime (some of those on this forum will be familiar with those troubles - Kirst had more friends than perhaps she knew). But, despite those momentary glimpses, I never knew things were as bad as they were. I had spoken with Kirst for quite some time in March this year, she was upbeat and seemed to be enjoying her life. Perhaps it was just a 'show' for me. I don't know.

Needless to say, I was simply staggered when I heard the news......

It throws into perspective all that we 'think' matters in this life. So much of our day-to-day troubles really shouldn't be given any level of importance. Enjoying life is the most important thing we can strive for. Being happy. Having support networks and people you can speak to HAS to be one of the key things in life. Without them, some obstacles seem insurmountable.

For some people, they will not be able to see a way out, period. We must all realise that we will never be able to 'save' everybody. I struggle with that at times. Some will chose a path that ends their troubles abruptly - without them having to go through the struggle of confronting those troubles. Unfortunately for those left behind, it leaves only unanswered questions and the despair that comes with knowing that they would have helped if only they'd been asked.....

I have some really neat memories of Kirst and it's those that I will cherish in years to come. The fact that she left us early is a long-distant second.

Godspeed 'iKirst', you are one in a million.

Cliff

I've just spent some time flicking back through the thread covering the period while I was away, if I'm honest, entirely because I wanted to hear and see what people here had to say. Cliff, I know you got hold of me on FB too, but reading this, I feel genuinely touched - I thank you for the kind words.

I know most of you here will know of Kirst, some very well, some not so much - and of course to everyone her passing was in many respects a huge shock. I don't claim to have any bigger part in her life than anyone else, and I'm not trying to start a competition or anything, but the reality is 6yrs ago now when I found this thread and started pestering the sh*t out of all of you guys - and now looking back - being yet another clueless idiot Pom while doing it, you all welcomed me and didn't give me too much cr@p.

Yet Kirst was the one who met me at the airport. Kirst is the one who phoned me most weeks, who would physically not let me within 50k's of Auckland without hunting me down and coming for a hug. She was more than a friend, she felt like the core of the family I've developed in NZ where I simply don't have any 'actual' family of my own. I loved her to bits and always will...

I saw her other half last night, first time I've been able to see anyone who was part of her life since I've been back - and being filled in on things was pretty hard. My deepest sympathies go out to all of her friends and loved ones, those who won't read this and those who are here.

Lastly I'd like to publicly thank Moppie. When he was married last year, both Kirst and I, thoroughly amongst the sh*t with life attended the wedding as each others dates (and in case you're wondering, no, not like that) and frankly being at Moppie's special day couldn't have been more special with anyone else. So it was with some gratitude that he offered to speak at Kirst's funeral on my behalf while I was away in the UK. You guys know by now I wear my heart on my sleeve so I believe the stories I've heard saying it was bloody difficult for Moppie to read what I'd written. The fact he did, at a time where the only thing I wanted to do was be with her, but I couldn't, is something I simply can't ever repay or say thank you enough for. Moppie, I'm forever indebted - love you man.

This world is poorer for her not being here, our only consolation that at least now she's at rest in herself.


Cheers, Dave.

Damn guys,
I did not see any of this earlier. I'm crushed.

It's been a long time since we had interacted on the forum but I absolutely remember her very fondly.
(Who could forget that avatar and the apt work of the Title Fairy.. )
I recall a few online conversations with her from years ago when i was more active and she was a "noob" on the forum.

For the people that knew her better, I am so sorry for your loss.

I have to say I am a little amazed at how much this is effecting me. I can only imagine how hard it is for you.

She is shooting the big 1DX in the sky now, with a 200-400mm I'm sure.

Hi CDS

Your thoughts are echoed throughout the GKPE group as a whole, she certainly had an effect on all who had the privilege to meet her.

It is good to hear from you again, we have own own Mod. of course but its not the same as having the occasional visit from some of the great powers like yourself & the likes of Tom.

I understand things are on the improve in your life, congrats are in order.

As an attendee at the funeral, I wholeheartedly agree. I know how difficult it would have been for you and am pleased that you could have your input from a distance.

Moppie a great job under difficult circumstances and it is a great relief to have a friend volunteer or to call upon to step up to the plate on your behalf.

What do you need them printing on?? I have the following papers (plus some other lighter weight photo/poster type papers)

Mark Vuleta wrote in post #16190580 (external link)
I have three Breathing Color papers: all in 24 inch wide rolls.

Elegance Velvet Platium Slightly textured fine art paper, great for landscapes, black & white portraits etc

Vibrance Metalic Terrific paper for the right image. Perfect for HDR images, brightly coloured pictures, pictures with metal or reflective surfaces & high contrast black & whites.

Lyve Canvas Fairly heavy canvas, should be varnished prior to stretching, landscapes, subtlety hued pictures & artistic portraits etc.

More details on these papers http://www.inkjetmedia​.co.nz/inkjet-media.html (external link)

Hi Guys, Just back from 4 great days in Austria. Great mountain biking, exploring and very little photography.

Love reading your comments about Kirst Dave. I probably knew her the least as I never met her, but we talked a couple of times on the phone. A great lady. Seems sad that with all the medical advancements out there, it is still not possible to help some people.
