Im taking friday off from work ( so far unless a huge job breaks!) and like a Doofus, I sent the 30D into Canon for a cleaning and check up.. Now I have just the pro1 to shoot with... Boo!! i do have the elan7 but im not into waiting for the film to come back.. And I scoped out of few locations in Milford at lunch today on the way back from Milford Photo and as it stands now, I will prolly stay home and work around the house... God i wish i had a condo right now...lol

Hey!!! lol
Oh ill be outside, unless it rains that is. I like my little pro1 but after useing a DSLR its really hard to go back to it.. its that damn shutter lag.. when it was my only camera I didnt even notice it, now I hit that button and expect to take the shot.. hell, I bet if I dont think about it, ill hit the shutter button and stick the cam in my pocket before the picture is taken...lol Hopefully canon is slow so I get it back soon.. I sent it in Via UPS RED so it got there yesterday before 10:30 AM.. now to just get them to do it today and get it in the mail...lol Mwaaaa haaa haaaa!

I would go get some nice ISO3200 35mm film and go take some creative film shots.... the weather is supposed to be crappy which will accentuate the pictures even more...

The good news is that I sent a 50mm back to canon to have them fix it under warrenty...it was back in under 2 weeks, so you may have luck getting your 30D back soon. I'm trying to decide whether to chance it or send my 1D out now to get it back before Christmas.....according to them it should be back in time.

they say 7 working days... I dunno, I still have the pro1.. Ross, I was hoping to do more stuff with the Lightbox if it rained.. I got some new BG materials and was curious as to how they'd look.
