    Yeah, I suppose the student budget for tickets gets a bit tight when your running on £11 a day! :P

    Oh no! Well I'd love a Canon 5 if i could afford one, but I've always used my Canon 550D which has actually been great - I just spend a little more on the lenses instead. I actually spoke to our course leader and she said not to spend too much because we'll be able to use their facilities.

    I'd love to see some of your work if you have any links?
    I might just get a Canon 650 D, thats what I used in college when my Nikon broke. And I'm just in the middle of sorting out all my pictures ready to upload on to my facebook should have them all on by tomorrow I'll send you the link then?

    Do you have links links for your work I could look at? x

    Hey guys, I've just got a quick question about one of the things we have to get for the course. The flash gun?

    Is this a flash gun: Attachment 239532 or is this a flash gun: Attachment 239533or are they both the same?

    Because when you type 'flash gun' into google, it comes up with the 2nd one, but when i went to order one from 7dayshop.com it came up with the 1st one. Any ideas?
    They are both flash guns in a sense but you want the second one, you'll find it far more useful with the ability to tilt and twist it to bounce the light off various surfaces like the ceiling etc. You will also be able to take it off camera and have it firing from different angles for more dynamic light effects

    A good place to check out for second hand gear is mpbphotographic.com you part ex your old stuff and it comes with warranties. You may be able to find a good 5D MK II on there but i agree with your other statement, investing in glass is far more cost productive. They bring out new bodies all the time but they've been using the same lenses for AGES!!!

    For us students yes lol. Fares range from around £22 - £60 or more even I think it depends if I book the tickets online & when I want them for etc.

    My camera broke aswel need to get a new one before term starts any reccomendations? I was thinking a Canon 5 Mark III but they're so expensive
    Yeah i second this, coming from Liverpool the train prices are ridiculous. If you book them online in advance you get them for £20 but if you don't you get slapped with a £74 like I did for my interview xD

    I look forward to you posting the link to your work and checking it out I am on the Photographic Art course but i like looking at others work

    Oh awesome, once you've paid you get it either the same day or next day I got mine an hour after paying. Chances are you could be in either Skenfrth or Penhow, I am sure there are other En-Suite blocks but they're the ones i know of Erm I may go the popcorn night but I am really not fussed on any of the freshers BIG events, I am more of house party kind of guy. However how often do you get a chance to see it RAIN POPCORN. Haha your Tequila may be better suited to the Mexican Night xD. I am not sure there is much nightlife in Caerleon itself apart from pubs, there is some clubs in Newport and Cardiff isn't far away for a good night out.

    Where abouts are you coming from then, if you don't mind me asking

    Ah brilliant, thanks! My mum got me the first one but I'm wondering whether I should exchange now. I'll have a look at the website though!
