Alpha 100, originally uploaded by Craig Grobler.

How lucky can one guy be? Not only am I being jetted off to Prague for my birthday - but this evening I received 2 objects of desire (on the ckc1ne scale). A Blu Ray copy of Casino Royale (to research Bond locations for our trip). As well as a Sony A 100 digital camera. The Bond disc I was going to get anyway for being one of the early registrars of PS3s in the UK, but the camera. Ding Dong. I have coveted one for awhile - but was unwilling to pay the current asking price. I had reluctantly decided to sell my 717 to offset costs and buy one in the near future.

My 717 broke before a sale was made it :-(. Apparently the CCD self destructs after a certain amount of lapsed time. (Sony are currently repairing it for free) So what a bonus. The only downside to this experience is that I spend the day on my cycle taking pics with my T7 - only to receive this 10meg Digital Single Lens Reflex action beast this evening. So I'm changing the way I choose the pic a day. Now instead of being something seen or relevant on the day. I will have a backlogue of images to choose from.

Whopppdi doo. Hi def pics on there way. By the way anyone is interested in an excellent Sony 717 (recently serviced) camera, Casino Royale Special Edition DVD (Unopened) or an unopened Blu Ray version. Please do let me know I accept PayPal. :-)
