    Re: For Sale by Phiggy

    ps3 doesn't come out till 2005!

    the handheld nintendo DS is £190 on import, released in march in uk estimated to cost £130.

    Just realised my ps2 is in warranty so i can get the sticky drive fixed :D woot.

    Went into jessops again today and they said that there wasnt much difference between eos 300 and 300v (the v being a little smaller, lcd display on the back instead of front etc etc)

    sorted!

    Thats cool.Jessops is where bought mine!
    If you use Ebay be careful , make sure the seller has good feedback and that he /she answers any questions you ask. Oh and also that he doesnt charge for using paypal, thats not allowed anymore!
    Good luck Bob/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif(I called you Rob before!)

    Heres an idea, go to the Jessies website and have a look at whats out there, they will send anything you want to have a look at to your local Izzle whithystrippers branch. I've got an EOS 100, and It's not a bad camera, just bought a 28 - 90 USM for £55 from Jessops, saw an EOS 100 for £99 last time I looked.

    As said before, Ffordes are very good, bought from them several times.

    If you go to the Jessops website, you might find one cheaper in another branch, apparently Widgets getting a bit expensive nowadays or so a friend who lives in Gurnard says (but she's old and remembers Hendrix. lol)

    Have a look at one of the older Canons, EOS 5 or 100. They have good features and are good solid cameras to use in full auto or manual modes. Plenty of lenses around as well.

    Regards, Steve


    I used to think I was good, but I'm better now /img/wwwthreads/wink.gif

    Morning Bob,

    Congrats on getting the camera. Now if you decide to continue with photography either as an 'avocation' or a 'vocation', just remember to
    invest in good glass which will serve you down the road.

    Also, and most important of all, get yourself a good PhotoVest which will
    do wonders to improve your photography. This is advice,I have passed on
    to each and every member of the AP Forums and it has helped them all immmensly,
    with the exception of BigWill who still insists on taking pictures of "ferkin
    flowers"/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif.

    Most important aspect of photography is to have fun whilst doing it.
