OK......so what's missing here?!?

Got all my parts and pieces.....

BUT I'M MISSING A FREAKIN CAMERA!!!!!

Bought it thru the Navy Exchange website on November 13th. The next day they posted a tracking number, stating it had been shipped. The tracking number wouldn't work when I clicked on it, so I figured maybe the numbers were wrong. I gave it a few days....no camera. So, I get on live chat with an Exchange rep last night, and she tells me the tracking number is incorrect.....

BECAUSE THE CAMERA IS COMING FROM JAPAN.

She tells me it's going to take 14 to 21 days, possibly up to 45 days!!!

Guess no cool pics on deployment. SUCH a bummer.

20D.....

I was really leaning towards the 5D, but just too much money right now. 5D's are going for over twice the amount of a 20D, and you get a full sensor and 12.8MP for the price.

20D is 8.2....not full sensor....but still takes beautiful pics. Maybe one day...

that's a DAMN good price.....just found one on eBay for $1649!

no wonder they're out of stock.

i got a similar spec lens, just with no image stabilization. i'm going to get a IS 100-400 when i get back. IS makes 'em pricey!

That's good to hear, I'm a little picky about buying camera stuff on the internet, but have heard good things about B&H Photo so I went with them.

It was out of stock a month ago when I ordered and then they recieved a few of them and sold out again... They seem to go very quick.

That sucks that you won't have the camera for the trip..... Dont' you still have your old one though?

nope.

first off, it's a 35mm, and after using a 20D at the MotoGP last year, I won't go back. Just TOO easy and convienent....and takes sweet pics too.

second, that camera made 2 trips to the gulf, and didn't make it the second time. it's a Minolta Maxxim 5000, and the autofocus diaphram went out. i started looking on ebay, and that camera can be had for around $150. not worth getting it repaired. just opening the back to reload film did a number on it. she's still full of grit.

That blows man. Does Navy use AAFES too? I always thought the exchange services were supplied from stateside.

I was gonna offer to sell you my 35mm rig just so you'd have something, till I saw what you said about the grit. They are pretty suseptible once you open them to load film.

Why don't you just pick up a cheap digital in the mean time? Won't be near the quality, but at least you'd have something...

OK........

SO the wife says she has a suprise for me last night. I'm thinking "special treats".

She opens the closet, and takes a box out.

Guess the camera came yesterday!! Funny part is, it came about the time I was bitching about it not coming. Funny.....cause I damn near bought another camera yesterday to take with me. Not anymore!

Look at this.....she's a beaut! Going to take pics....I'll be back in awhile....
