Err, mind if I let the pictures do the talking?
It's actually a calculated purchase. Together with the Canon 400D, I received a book of coupons on certain items if bought before the end of this year. Always trying to save money, I decided to get the Canon 580EX flashgun - the same one that Rosli Othman has.
I figured that as I do lots of indoors photography of the family, I "need" one of these, really.
During his recent visit, Rosli Othman managed to convince me to get the off shoe cord as well - which I did as part of a 50% offer from the online shop. Booyah!
Oh well, a lot of studying to do on flash techniques - next time we meet OK Rosli?
Anyone interested to buy a Canon EFS 10-22mm wide angle lens? I have a £75 off voucher, bringing the price of the lens to around £280. Anyone interested just let me know, I'll let you have the voucher free of charge (although I would like the lens, I can't afford it .......... yet, but always happy to help another photo enthusiast).
