Birddog114: Do you have a physical camera shop or do you just do online sales? Just I'd rather take my business through your community than go to somewhere like Ted's Cameras!!

Business is done in the back alleyway in the shadows behind a truck.

birddog has neither a physical camera shop NOR does he do online sales in the traditional sense. Basically he's just a member here (a VERY IMPORTANT one) who organises for us to part with our hard earned dollars in exchange for objects we lust like bodies and lenses and tripods and the like.

In order to participate in this you need to participate here as described in the FAQ which you should go and read straightaway since it covers lots about how to be a good member of this little community.

I was really looking forward to coming, but the gf has just surprised me with a last minute cheap deal to Townsville! So I'll be away. Next time, I guess.

Hi Birddog,

If there is still room Ros and I would like to attend. If it is getting overly full not to worry as I am on call and may have to leave suddenly anyway.

I just realised that I've double booked this Saturday, so I'm going to have to postpone my extreme tripod lust for the next meet.

Sorry.
