I got a couple of good parcels today. The first actually arrived yesterday but I had to pick it up this morning and the later arrived later on.

The first package contained both a Canon EOS300V Film body and a Canon EOS 500D digital body.
Ive been looking at giving film photography a try for quite a while now but have been unable to justify the cost of a film body until now. I bought the film body at the same time and from the same dealer as I got my 500D body. Live View and Video are things that greatly tempted me as well as a general upgrade from my 400D body (Which will still be kept as a spare and for experiments.)

The second package contained my order from a leading Australian electronics shop. In particular parts to build a sound activated high speed trigger, light activated high speed trigger an intervalometer.

The light activated trigger will be used to automate my lightning photography so that I don't need to risk being a lightning rod myself. I'm playing around with a couple of different ideas on triggering which I won't go into too much detail about yet as I have not figured them out myself yet.

The sound trigger will be very similar but with a different sensor and will be able to control lighting such as flashes as well as the camera.

The intervalometer will be the easiest of the lot and the hardest part of which will be working out how have the configuration.

Over all with this gear and these projects I will have a lot to keep me interested for a while.

No problem, I love some of your work, particularly the nature photography. I really should go out and do some more of my own but with it being winter here that is not too easy.

Oh? Well I picked this name from my time in the Half-Life 2 modding community.
