I've got one of those.
I've found 'The Pod' to be nice and handy (or supportive). And you can throw it at people too.
Do Jessops sell beer?.........................they don't ....................well no wonder the sodding company's going down the tubes, that's where they've been going wrong all this time! Anyway, that's my idea for spending holly's £25 down the swannie.............................can you get beer shaped cameras? (The more astute observers amongst you may have noted a certain recurring theme in BigWill's thoughts!)
Beer no. Optics, maybe. The downside being you'll get value vodka (or meths!) for the price of Smirnoff.
Wot? a magazine?
There is the Minolta Beercan, (a well respected lens 70-210 f4)
I just bought a 40d from Jessops. The best price I could get online was £849.00 plus £7.95 delivery - jessops charged me £859.00, i got to check the camera was mint, and then they gave me a free skylight filter - theres £30 saved.
It sometimes pays to support the locals.
You can get a beer shaped telescope!
Just the job for star parties - turn up waving one of these & put on a newt imitation....
Doesn't it suffer from barrel distortion?
What is that for heavens sake??
Buy a new memory card, always useful.
What, at Jessops? For £25? Ha!
Yep... Jessops... memory card... twenty five quid... might be able to stretch to a 256 Kb card.
Forgot it was Jessies.
Good point, but the Ilford film price is at least reasonable.
I actually need a new digi cam right now, I think I would put it towards that if I had £25 Jessops voucher.
Oy, I'll have less of the sarcastic snorting!
But seriously, when you are in Reading pop in on a weekend and I'll help out.
£25 voucher for Jessops? That should get you a 32MB SD card.
Crikey.. come back from a night out of food stuffing into gob and see the thread has gone off tangent and is all about alcohol... Woohoo!
I had SUCH a minging hangover at the weekend.. if anyone recalls... I said I was going to Feltham to see some mates - I drunk SO much vodka, God knows how I got back on the train.. it's a bit of a blur.. managed to mutter my address to a taxi driver, get home and then collapse in bed...
I was still over the limit the next morning so had to phone the salon and say I would be late as had to take a bus... and literally felt rough all of Saturday and Sunday morning at the farmers market....
Vodka is now on the 'can't drink' list along with Southern Comfort....
I'll be in town on Sunday Tommy... as am getting my nails done and meeting a friend - if you work there on a Sunday you'll know it's me instantly as my mouth will be going 19 to the dozen
Tommy - Don't forget to call her George and wink when you say "Hello George"
Wow not only a Linux lady but one who works in a salon, that don't add up!
