:D

Just had a parcel from DHL - a second X-700 body (one that's actually working 'n' everything!), another 50mm lens (so that's 3 so far), a 28-200mm zoom and another (better) flash gun.
Joy.
Just need to give it a bit of a clean.

I'd love to see an image on Flickr of all your gear collected into one image and notes added to each bit of equipment.

I've gone and done it.
The gear pic is up on my Flickr, with notes, as requested.

Cos they're awesome.

Basically, my main body has gone through a lot of rolls, and been off to the menders three times in as many months.
Now, as I've got at least two shoots on the horizon that I really, really want to do, I need to know my camera body won't crap out on me.
Not good cancelling a shoot halfway through because your shutter has jammed and the film advance isn't working.
So, what to do?
Get a second back up body.


Just put a roll of 24 frames through it this evening, and I really like the action on it. Really positive, snappy. :D

Don't break it.
If you must sell it, then sell it.
Or you could always learn to use it.
