No, But I prefer to get some power in my tent for the week I'm staying at the campsite. And the pack was priced quite favourably compared to just the reel (50 vs 32 eur)

Well we're half way through November and I'm a big kid so naturally it's time to look at advent calendars. I saw the Wera toolkit calendar last year so naturally I looked at that first, however this year the tools really aren't much use to me. They look like good quality though. I looked for any unsold items from last year, only finding one on eBay that is going for a ridiculous price at £60 with a couple of days left.

Anyway, thanks to the Hudraulic Press Channel I found out about one sold in Lidl, so picked one of those up, the last one in the shop! :D

Over the month you build up a nice little toolkit with the rarest of items (to me at least), a ratchet T-bar. This will live in the frunk of my Smart and it seems perfect at half of the price of the Wera calendar.

I've purchased a new blow dryer. The old one is broken because of my sister - she just left it on her bed and then accidentally sit on it... No chance to survive after that butt :) I've looked for the recommendations of new dryer here:

I've chosen Dyson Supersonic and it's good for my needs. I hope it will stand longer than the old one :)

Just booked a small cottage in France. A few hours outside of Paris. In the middle of June. And tickets to some big car thing or something.

I did buy a handful of interesting things while the forums were AFK.

Wife and I went to Japan for a month on our honeymoon, I wanted to shoot 4x5 film while we were there but lugging my Cambo monorail around the Land of the Rising Sun and Strange Pornography was a non-starter - it's massive and heavy. So I balled out on a lightweight collapsible field camera to make that even remotely possible. It's a Chamonix 45F2 and it's just wonderful to use, and it uses a lot of carbon composite so it weighs fuck-all.





I also wanted a lighter wideangle for the trip because my current 90mm is a huge silly beast that covers 5x7, so I snagged a deal on a Caltar-branded Rodenstock Grandagon-N 90/6.8. Fantastic little lens, you can see it mounted on the camera in the second photo.


More currently, today I bought 72 rolls of 120 film because I'm an idiot and can't pass up on good film deals. I have too much film.
