All is well for me and those I know, however it's confirmed that 6 people have lost their lives to this natural disaster.
The water is receeding very quickly, as the storm and rain came from the ocean this time, not from inland as it normally would, so rivers are draining quickly in places.

Ah, a welcome sound to my ears after ensuing arguments on facebook regarding instagram (hate it), so thank you

Camera is a Nikon D7000 DSLR and I use three Nikon lenses, a wide angle (non fish eye, but it still distorts a little) 10-24mm lens, an all-round 18-105mm lens, and a telephoto 70-300mm for those longer shots and a tripod to make things a little easier.
I'm still learning how to use it, but it's great fun to experiment, and takes good video too (all my youtube videos are taken with the Nikon)

I'm sure WA has it's awesome sights to see too! I remember seeing a photo on here a while ago of someone with a Grand on a pristine beach in WA somewhere with beautiful white sand, but for the life of me, I can't remember the name of the beach.

Now I suppose you want me to get started on all the video editing, so you can watch that too huh? haha

That's good to hear, for you at least.. Not for the 6.

That's some decent gear you're using. I'm really a beginner but my friends have DSLR's and we're all 'into' photography and I'm actually looking to upgrade to some Nikon DSLR stuff soon. Been looking at the D5200, but I'm prob going to wait until the D7100 comes out.

I'm glad you told me about the wide angle lens, as I may look to get one of those as well as apart from the stock lens they usually come with I want a nice wide lens. And good to know that your vids were done with this cam as they look like great quality.

Yeah WA has got some great stuff. The only prob is everything is so spread out over here, gotta drive for hours to get to where you want to.. We do have heaps of beaches like you described, in fact I'd say that is mostly what the 4wd culture over here is, just heading to the beach for camping, fishing, playing in dunes etc.

I've started to get into photography myself. Bought a Canon 550D, which is the top end of the consumer range for Canon. After that it's pro and that starts really getting expensive. Basically similar internals for the 550D and it's bigger brothers although the pros have a stronger body and slightly bigger sensor. Obviously the 1D is far better again.

I bought it to do movies. The TV crews shoot production quality TV ads on 7D's these days. But the problem I found is the size of the files. They are HUGE. A 10 minute recording is bigger than a 2 hr DVD (about 4 GB), and as such it takes a painfully long time to load into Microsoft Movie Maker before you can even start the edit process. Anyone know how to speed up the process?? Is there a better free (or cheap) movie editing program?

Good idea:

Let mine sit in the long term car park at Tullamarine Airport for the last 10 days whilst I have been in New Zealand

It's OK though - we'll be reunited tomorrow night!

I removed my rear left window regulator, now waiting for the new Ally blocks to replace the plastic one that broke, and the others that haven't broke just yet.

Every Sunday I lift the bonnet and make sure it's all there with no surprises, still there thankfully, then go full bore up Toowoomba range to go shopping, nothing better than cruising past less capable vehicles.
Then get home and dream about what I would like to add to it, so I'm ready when the Lotto cheque turns up.

Well not today exactly, but over the weekend, replaced my old crazed headlights with lovely crystal clear new(secondhand) ones.

I also replaced the parking lights with some really cool LED lights, they & the new headlights are just so much better at night.

First Service - 1 month one, not the first real one

Installed front recovery point - I reckon I'll be waiting a while for the ARB front bar.

Updated the software of my headunit - kept switching back to radio randomly from the ipod

Captured my engine map for the "sand issue = fail" - gets sent back to chrysler for a module update. Haven't had it in the sand yet, but heading to Straddie for easter.

Couldn't fault my problem with a shudder from heavy accel from 100km/hr, but offered me to take a tech for a ride (not today though). I took it down the gateway on the way home and it's very repeatable so will take them up on this. I believe its a torque converter issue similar to the hemi one that's on the states forums. Can't handle the torque!

Overall very happy with Albion service, didn't get any blah, blah bullshit - I'll continue to take it there.
