Title: I got some new toys
Post by: donoreo on May 26, 2012, 07:38:35 PM
I was at the Henry's Camera Exposure Show this morning here in Toronto.   Lots of fun, seminars, product, half naked models, and birds of prey.   I got some photos of the birds, but not the models.   

They always have a clearance section.  Last fall (they do this twice per year) I got an Arctic Butterfly for $29 and various other things over the years.    This year I  got a couple of things:

This backpack http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-AB-1628-AMVONA-PRO-PROFESSIONAL-SLR-DIGITAL-CAMERA-BACKPACK-FREE-SHIPPING-/190529828709 listed on eBay at $149 USD for $40 CAN

I also got a Vanguard SBH-100 ball head for $69, the best anyone else has it for is $78 USD. 

I also listened to some of the seminars and checked out all the exhibitor's booths (Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony, Panasonic, Fuji, Sigma all had large set ups).

Sounds like you enjoyed yourself and saved some cash to boot.  ;D

Even better, I opened the box for the tripod head and it has a second quick release plate.
