Methinks someone forgot to read the title of the thread.

A friend is selling a Nikon D3200 with a 55-180mm lens if anybody is interested. Also takes excellent videos. Very nice camera folks and a great middle range lens that. ;)

I had a collection of Canon FD lenses for a Canon A1 film camera and wanted to use them on the new EOS system, the Canon version of the adapter was an awful price, so I checked both FleaBay and Amazon and Amazon came up trumps, albeit the adapter was made in Outer Mongolia or somewhere :lol: I took a chance because it was very cheap and it actually works, the downside is you lose Auto Focus but I was used to manually focussing any way. What my search did show me was there are hundreds of adapters on Amazon and much cheaper than branded items. Maybe you've looked it up already, I got time lapse controllers, close-up rings etc etc at a fraction of the cost. I know they are made in obscure places but all mine worked and still are working.
Keeper are you any good at fixing lenses? I have a Canon EFS 17-85mm lens and the aperture flex thingy is not
working. I was quoted just under €300 for a repair which is half the cost of the lens itself. The replacement part only costs
a few euro but I 'm not confident enough to tackle it myself .
Here's a ref to what's required to fix it.

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/40439217
I got my lens repaired and it's working fine now blob blob
I was browsing a couple of forums and came across a problem similar to my own and the guy on the forum
was given a recommendation to contact a camera repair guy in Rathmines. A lot of people endorsed his advice so
I decided to give the repair guy a quick call . He knew immediately what I was talking about and his price for repair was €145
I dropped my lens in and had it back within four days. When I called in to collect it , he cleaned my camera for free.
Happy days!!!

Glad to see you got fixed up Dancer ! That was great to find someone to repair your lens for such a reasonable fee, did you buy the spare part and supply it to him :?:

Hi Keeper, no I didn't supply any parts . Apparently the aperture flex cable and auto focus ring are part of the same component so he fitted a whole new piece . Camera is back working fine now. I would recommend these guys , they are
knowledgeable , efficient , good value for money and very friendly honest people. hellllo

Big "Moonie" opportunity tonight for the snappers among you.
Supermoon AND an Eclipse.
But only for the insomniacs. Moonrise 1:10am in the North East. 37 degrees to be precise.
Full eclipse at 3:47 am
Fingers crossed the clouds stay away

Im scarleh with shame!

I spent a considerable amount of time earlier today with maps and compass figuring out where to locate myself for a best ever shot of the moon rising over A well known local landmark.
Stuck my head out after the news to check cloud cover in anticipation of moonrise at 1 am. There it was grinning down at me!!! I had misread the tables and mistook its highpoint time for its rising time. Grrrrr

This evening, I got my act together on got down to the Vico just in time to watch the Moon and the Kish compete to impress the residents on the Terrace.

Image

I think the Moon shaded it . . .

Image

Last night, I got the moon on it own - just hanging around waiting to be eclipsed . . .

Image

I wonder do the Corpo realise there's a roundabout up there?

By the way, anyone who's into planning moon/sun shoots will find this site useful http://www.timeanddate.com/moon/ireland/dublin

Gorgeous photos Micheál. Wish I had your camera skills. Some nights the Kish looks great with a lit up ship or two parked overnight out of Dublin Port
