A little late...

Condolences to Al and Maggie on the loss of your cat. I know how quickly a pet can become a member of the family.

Just quoting because I'm talking to you... how'd the 300 sale and 35 purchase go? Your sig isn't updated, I hope it still happened because the 35L seems like such a good lens!

I would be up for it. I'm going to get the cheapo traveller charger though :), hope it suffice?
Which battery would be better for the flash units though, Powerex or Imedion? I'm guessing the former?

photobitz wrote in post #8210848 (external link)
Actually Feng, I might grab a couple of 4 packs of Immedions if you're putting an order in.

I'll leave the money on your night stand on the way out :p

kja wrote in post #8210861 (external link)
I think I need some more batteries, too, so please let me know when/if this goes ahead :)

AndrewOz wrote in post #8211015 (external link)
Feng

Put me down for 4 sets of the AA Imedions and one MH-C204W Travel Battery Charger

PM me the cost and bank details. :cool:

cheers

Andrew

I could go 2 sets of AA batteries to.

Hey all. I'm interested in the battery group buy. What sort of discount would be available to us? (I'd need a travel charger as well.)

OK well I guess there's enough interest.

Usually what happens is I order everything to me. I boost the purchase amount to the maximum number of cells required for the cheapest price, and then with the combined items etc, it usually works out that you'll get the charger 'slightly' cheaper and the batteries at the cheapest price on the site (for bulk buys) posted to your door.

You pretty much save freight (and sometimes a bit more depending on the number of items) plus get the cheapest 16+ price for 3-4 sets of batteries

You could do it yourself and buy online and put in the freely available 10% discount code which floats around on OCAU/Whirlpool, but the thing which you end up costing is the freight.

e.g. $10-15 freight on $150 is still 10% so entirely up to you.

I am happy to invoice you (Dave DG, do I still owe you an invoice for something? I'll back date it for you for the previous financial year so you can add it to last year's books if you like... just PM me how much and whether I have or not...)

If you're all happy for this to take place... then I'll start a post with everyone's details and yeah... go from there pretty much.

Just so you know, there's pretty much $0 in it for me apart from getting AA's and AAA's for the cheapest price on their site. If I save a buck, you save a buck.

Either either really. I usually end up buying the maximum number of packs, so the cost ends up being about what the minimum buy on the website including freight from me to you. ~$16.50 incl freight... depending on specials bundles, it can work out cheaper too :)

Any ways I'm easy. :)

I might want a couple of four packs too....

Bugger, thanks for checking anyway.

Have had a psu take out my memory and have had to fall back to a 512M & 256M. Lightroom really sux below 1Gb.

To use DDR2 I have got to upgrade my M/B and CPU so that's a long term issue.

Ive also only got DDR2 laying around. Sorry :(

Cameron

That's how you feel about the 35L. ;)

I hate you guys. :mad:

Lightstream wrote in post #8206176 (external link)
Yes, blown away by the high ISO. Previously, with crop cameras, ISO 3200 left me virtually no room to maneuver in Lightroom. The image would fall apart quite quickly once you tried adjusting stuff. The only tool it responded really well to was the noise reduction.

ISO 3200 in the 5D was much more forgiving, you had some leeway for underexposure, but not much.

ISO 3200 on the 5D2 is stunning, it's as 'editable' as ISO 800 off the 40D. The LCD on the 5D2 is amazing, in fact it made me think my lenses were misfocusing on the other cameras when in fact their LCDs were just not sharp enough to display the detail, giving me the wrong impression. AF is faster than the 5D, noticeably so. Other than that, they kept all the best parts of the 5D. 6400 has already enabled me to get shots I would not have otherwise.

Battery capacity display is nice, as well as the larger top deck LCD, much better rear LCD, ISO in finder, enhanced viewfinder (brighter, more detailed info), and the creature comforts like HTP, ISO NR, nicer menus, more Cx options on the dial (5D only had 1). While 3fps to 4fps seems paltry to some, that's a 33% increase in framerate. It is noticeable, and meaningful. I can shoot sequences with the 5D2 and have them turn out really nice.

I'm deploying 2xFF bodies at events nowadays unless I need high speed crop, so the 5D is staying. 24-105 on 5D2, 135L or 70-200/4 ISL on 5D1. That's the main reason for my 5D2, I wanted 2 x FF.

My 24-105 would be superglued to one of the 5D's, but I want the ability to mix n match :p that lens is more than just a lens to me, it's a signature. There will never be anything quite like it. This is the one lens they'll pry from my cold dead hands. Every story I need to tell.....is told via the 24-105.

You can knock the 5D2's files down to 12MP, no problem. In fact I do that because 22MP is kinda wasted on me. TBH, I bought the 5D2 for every other reason EXCEPT the megapixels. 12.7 (classic 5D) is fine for me.

Thanks for that Yoda. Very tempting. If I do a Ph.D next year and get a scholarship, I know where part of that money will be going. :lol:

POTNAC Servaas Group Buy - Mark III - Arrived & Packing!

Thought I'd better write this up. This will be the tracking thread for the 3rd POTNAC Servaas Group Buy.

Usually what happens is I order everything to me. I boost the purchase amount to the maximum number of cells required for the cheapest price, and then with the combined items etc, it usually works out that you'll get the charger 'slightly' cheaper and the batteries at the cheapest price on the site (for bulk buys) posted to your door.

You pretty much save freight (and sometimes a bit more depending on the number of items) plus get the cheapest bulk price for 3-4 sets of batteries

You could do it yourself and buy online and put in the freely available 10% discount code which floats around on OCAU/Whirlpool, but the thing which you end up costing is the freight.

e.g. $10-15 freight on $150 is still 10% so entirely up to you.

I am happy to invoice you if you require it, but let me know before hand. I will ask for the details when items are ready to ship.

If you're all happy for this to take place... then I'll start a post with everyone's details and yeah... go from there pretty much.

Just so you know, there's pretty much $0 in it for me apart from getting AA's and AAA's for the cheapest price on their site. If I save a buck, you save a buck.

Note. All battery numbers are packs of 4 unless specified. AA packs come with plastic cases. AAAs don't, but I have a few spare so I'm happy to throw one in with each 4 pack of AAAs.

Same as earlier, it's up to you. Plenty of comparative data around on the web, though, if you are having trouble deciding.


cheers, juice (Canon shooter, Elinchrom lighter, but pretty much agnostic on brands.)

:lol: He was selling his 300 to fund a 35. I was going to get the 300 but he went to ebay with it because he needed the money ASAP.
