    remember to bring the ∞mm f∞ lens to complement your D∞X.

    and your SB-∞ Speed light

    IIRC... i think i saw a Heineken bar there. do check it out and see if it's still there. it was rumoured that some badass Decepticon robot annihilated it some time back.

    do be careful though in your trip. cheers...

    if you're bored you can beat it into glue

    glue is much more useful than having to look at your photos and complain about how the af is not good enough, how it is off in some pictures, how the image quality needs to be improved, how iso performance not good enough, how you need new lenses despite having the dinfinityx.

    fotoudavid is as entrepreneurial as ever. he can do your product shots for you, or he can do a mars sand themed wedding shoot if you intend to get married with all the money you earn selling the martian sand
