Came in the mail today...

Canon Photo5 Competition box.

Now I just need to get over this cold I have so my brain works again enough to think of something interesting to do with the contents.

  • accesser said:
    Cool so what did you get inside ? Balloons ?
  • David de Groot said:
    I wish!
    I'm just hoping I can a) come up with some good ideas b) come up with ideas I'm actually able to pull off.
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah now that'd be telling wouldn't it? :P
  • beachut (John) said:

  • Xenedis said:
    It's the new 5D...
  • teejaybee said:
    heh I got it too...
  • David de Groot said:
    Good luck ! :)
    Yeah, in a box half the size of a tissue box - the big surprise is they've ditched full frame and gone to Micro-Four Thirds ;-)
    So, are we expecting some creative shots with frogs then ?
  • digiqq said:
    I got the same thing today. haha
  • P de G 1952 said:
    So What's in the box then????? .........hehe!! and don't tell me I have to wait til we get to your place.
  • David de Groot said:
    It'll be interesting to see what people come up with. I have an idea for one item already, if I can manage to make it work...
    Well in the interests of not spoiling the surprise for those that haven't got their box yet, you'll have to wait until you get here (or until I manage to photograph something with the contents). :-P

    Don't tell me what's in the box!!! :-)
    I expect mine will be waiting for me at home today
    *Fingers Crossed!*
    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
  • David de Groot said:
    Should be good to see what you come up with Bennie :)

    does you brain hurt Dave?

    David de Groot Hi Dave..
    Well sure enough my little Canon package was waiting for me at home last night! :-)
    The only issue was, was that the kids wanted to first know what was in the box and 2. Having seen the items, wanted to play with them.
    3. Mean old dad (that is me), said no... :-(
    4. After 1 min of complaining, kids find something else to do
    5. Box is now up high out of reach from kidlets! :-)
    and yes, i was thinking last night and some of the possibilities of the items/photos.. etc...
    hmmmm, the creativity challenge! I love it! :-)
    Seen in my recent comments. (?)
  • David de Groot said:
    Absolutely :P
    I had the same problem with my youngest, esp. the thing you hold like a pencil... ;-)
  • Sara Pearcy said:
    Haha Bennie, I hid mine really quickly, esp after the thing David just mentioned and the little thing with the lid. I'd never get them back if they were seen by the kids!
    Good luck with the comp, Everyone. :)
  • Garry' said:
    Good luck David....wouldn't it be nice?
    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Sara. Good luck all (just not too much luck) ;-)
    Indeed it would Garry - I'm eyeing a new 5D Mk II :)
  • Mr Magoo ICU said:
    I think I got mine just in time.. i sent the link to someone a couple of days after and they'd closed down entry. Exactly 2 weeks to go and I still haven't taken a photo.. argh. Good luck everyone.

    My box is open but that's as far as I've got. :(
