    Well for the SA people.....

    a meet again re the block - maps here - viewtopic.php?f=28&t=18900




    I'm having a canon event at the block and the $50 cost of The Canon side of things is to cover the insurance , food etc and to give something to Kevin and Marie for sharing the lovely surrounds (sat night bbq food and sun morn bbq brekkie + tea coffe milk etc)


    here is the link https://www.canon.com.au/en-AU/Personal ... -Nildottie


    I will be getting there Friday lunch If any wish to stay Friday night also and there is no charge involved in that :)


    I will PM/contact the usual culprits asap


    there will be some good lenses and bodies to try as per the usual kit that Steve Huddy from Canon brings

    We will probably go down to the Devon Downs spot level with the water for light painting also With some spark balls/lasers and led lighting


    I will post more as I hear as there may be a telescpoe or two but not sure yet!



    cheers Eden

    well it sold out so there will be 20 ish people there.

    There will be a large array of Canon EF lens and EOS bodies available to borrow and use on the weekend . Everything from 11mm all the way up to 500mm plus a few 2x extenders. and an EOS 80D with the new EFS18-135mm IS STM there for our exclusive use.

    where will be light painting tools as well as a pixelstick also, lasers and torches and some leds set up for spinning orbs etc (maybe some steel wool spinning also).

    Steve Huddy will have his drone also so there should be some cool aerial footage and shots

    I will be there friday after 2pm and leaving sunday lunch ish


    the road will be marked with red/white tape at each turn off the bitumen to the property gate from either direction (Walkers Flat and Swan Reach).


    any issues just PM me!
