Car is at Tickford now, so time to hassle Qantas and Hertz again with a trip down on Wednesday to see the baby in the metal for the first time :cool:.

Expect photos to show some of you how Tickford does their thing on these cars! It is VERY interesting and will whet your appetites for October.

Now if someone can help me out with going through the CONFUSING process of buying a camera, I'd take the photos for you. I was after a combined video/still digital camera which has good optical zoom etc. All I got was more and more confused....

I gave up! Maybe some of you have input on these things (budget is $3k)

I'm looking at getting one too.. you should be able to pick up a good one for around $1200 - $1500k that will do mpeg movies for ya. Any local Kodak photo place should have some good deals. I think they're up to 2 or 3.1 mega pixel (or something) now.. :D

If you buy one with a card make sure you get the software with the camera. Otherwise your camera is useless.

You can get a quite good still digital camera for about $1200 now mate. I've got my eye on the Kodak DC-4800, nice little unit with some great features. Most importantly it is 3 megapixel resolution, which is a must in my books. Anyhow, check it out at estore : http://www.estore.com.au/browse/details.asp?ProdID=38844

Can't comment on digital video cams, although I do want one! :D

We have the digital cameras here at work too. owever they are limted to no more than 60secs of video. I was after a video camera that can do stills (if you get my drift). Forgot to mention gyro so I can stick the camera in the car and go hot rodding on video (he. he, he)

Duty free isn't all it's made out to be! Try negotiating a cash deal and you'll see duty free isn't worth the hassles.
