    Hi

    I'm Kim, I joined today after being rousted from D-Photo's forums which are closing. Admittedly it wasn't working for me there and I wasn't posting. A few weeks ago I found another forum (ILP), and I have learned more in those few weeks than I have ever.

    I am looking forward though to having a more friendly and "local" forum for discussions, and look forward to learning from all you experts! (Or senior members ).

    Hello all, I am happy to have found this place. When I last looked for a NZ forum there weren't any that were actually being used as far as I could tell. I have a Nikon D200 but today found a scratch on the sensor (am really concerned as to how it could possibly have got there) maybe time to look at that D700...

    Oh, that's a bugger

    But I like your thinking, there's a new beast out there and it's got your name on it, go for it

    He sorted Photocol out with a nice setup a couple weeks back, and Desmond get's his gear from him too I believe.

    That's good to know. Wouldn't like to get burned with that much cash going out.

    We have a CAB training session on Trademe next week. The trainer is flying all the way from Invercargil especially, and she is excellent, so I'm looking forward to that. I can't say that we get that many enquiries about Trademe, but it is good to know your law when dealing with them.

    Can you find us a link please Colin? I usually use John Thompson for bits and bobs, but I'd love to take a look at Bartman's site.
