Thread: Going to France soon..

  1. #1

    Default Going to France soon..

    Despite the flu outbreak and flood, i had my jabs already..
    i'm going to France...

    What things to shoot in France? despite the usual stuff like the buildings...

    And also, i know that filters from Cokin are made in France, does it mean that the filters/products by cokin are cheaper in there?

    anyone knows where to buy them? (just tryin my luck)

    You can find more things to shoot in Barcelona than in Southern France. The weather is better in Barcelona also. Shoot people, street scenes, etc. In Barcelona you must walk along the La Rambla (not sure spelt correct?) It is the equivalent of Orchard Road but bigger, livelier, more enjoyable.

    Oh, about the plug, most western Europe countries use the 2 round pin (small pins) type. Singapore use the British plug which is totally non-compatible with the European plug.

    yes, austin is right..
    France (or most euro countries) uses the round pin, WITH the earth hole (as in their wall socket will have a earth pin sticking out of the socket fitting the plug.
    i bought the plug adapter near SLS for $2.50.

    i'm leaving on sat... hehe... taking Malaysia airlines?
    maybe we could meet on the plane.. hehe
