Default Help!

Soo who is good with a camera, has a decent one - lives in Toronto, or near enough they wouldn't mind coming to my house?

Here's the deal; my new rig is almost done; I'm terrible with a camera, I'm terrible with taking photos at all; but I want some nice ones taken of my case to show everyone here.


I'll buy the beer.

You dont have a digital camera?I would think even a crappy one would take not bad pics of a PC,Its not far away or moving around.and with digital cameras you can take tones of pics until you get some you like.try taking some pic with the flash on and some with it off.Make sure to hold the camera still for a few seconds even after the pic is taken just because the shutter speed might not be fast.for close up pics (i think 18 inches or closer)put the camera to the flower mode.I'm sure that your pics will turn out fine,.I cant wait to see your pics, I have the CM Sniper Storm case to,great air flow and good temps,but most people think its a heater or dehumidifier or something lol. Cameras are easier to use than PCs , you'll do fine.

I'm assuming he wants like a pro-photo-shoot done of his case, like some of the people on XS do themselves.

The kind of photos that make you go and just totally want to have that PC.

I'll be in town late this week, or early next Encorp.

We kinda missed each other last buisness opportunity due to dual-hangovers iirc. Probably about time you gave me free beer I'm thinking .

(notice I said nothing of HQ pictures! )

Sounds like a good time for me, since I wont be time constraint. My house isnt ready till 9 Oct, but I'll be living in Oshawa come Monday next week.

Once I get my cell switched over local, I'll pm you my number. I lost yours when my iPhone crashed on a fw upgrade (while backing up at that...go apple?) so we'll have to re-exchange. Either that or you can text me and make arrangements for our 'date' now...

Yeah just toss me a pm whenever! I live ON the beach in Toronto so if it's a nice day we can hang out in the back and holler at girls as they rollerblade by :P hopefully if we're lucky they'll trip and we can help them up!
