Today started with a trip into Penzance. It was mostly so that my mum could go to the scoop and save shop but I took the opportunity to visit the big camera shop there as well as MVC.
As it turns out, the camera shop had on sale the nice pistol-grip Manfrotto tripod head I saw some photographers use a few weeks ago. They had it on sale for a mere £79.99, rather less than the list price. However, this head will only fit Manfrotto tripods as it uses a non-standard size thread. Hence, if I were to get one I’d also have to buy a new tripod. Hmm.
Other revealations today included the fact that you can still buy Mamod steam engines and that you can buy train sets which include a digital control system (DCC).
Oh and in MVC I bought a few DVDs in their buy one, get one half price offer. Oh, and my dad bought me Christmas pressie, series 1 & 2 of the Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy radio series. I’ll have to find the recent series for myself elsewhere.
So, other than watching The Prisoner of Azkaban and the two Stargate episodes tonight, that was the whole day.
