Fuji Mini Instax Camera Film

Posted by Hennners on 8/11/2009 at 19:15

Hey all, Q: CAN I GET Fuji Mini Instax Camera Film IN THAILAND + HOW MUCH IS IT? I'm travelling to SE-Asia later this month and have suddenly had an urge to get an Instant film camera. (bit like the polariods they had in the old days...) Anyway, I'm going to get a Fuji Instax Camera of some sort, and wondered whether I should buy all the film before I go, or whether it will be easy to find and cheaper in Thailand/Bangkok. I can get 10 films for £5/250THB online. Thanks! Hennners ...

Video camera + internet cafe's

Posted by rsthomas on 24/7/2008 at 23:53

Hey all! I am going to be documenting my trip via HD Video Camera. The camera stores the footage directly on it's internal drive. It can shoot up to 7 hours before needing to be cleared. I will need to be connecting my camera to computers in Southeast Asia at the cafes in order to download my footage. I wanted to know if anyone has done this type stuff and if it is fairly easy to do at these cafes. Also, is there an online video storage site that you can recommend? Thanks so much! ...

shopping for cameras etc ? Do your homework !

Posted by henricartier on 18/3/2008 at 14:58

In my humble experience, being in Singapore 5 times in the last four years, and spending an extraordinary amount of energy online to 'research' price fluctuations of a variety of consumables, especially electronics I have come to the conclusion: 1. Do your homework - online and through forums, many specific to photo gear and purchases. 2. Compare !( seems such an obvious thing to do but who does it ?)- prices at "home" - wherever you usually reside. Last time I bought a digital camera in Sing ...

So, we leave home with laptop, mobile phone/digital camera etc. which all must shout 'tourist' beware/ valuables/lock up back packs/ leave nothing in rooms etc. that's why you have insurance . Dohhhh! Yeah right. ( I saw a guy get his arm slashed as an enterprising passenger thief on a motorcycle rode by, cut through the tourists' shoulder bag strap with a hunting knife and esc ...

Bangkok photography workshop from Jan 7 to Feb 3, 2008

Posted by somtam2000 on 13/12/2007 at 13:32

I wouldn't normally post something like this in the forum, but it's starting soon and when Jonathon Taylor sent it over, it struck me as a particularly good deal -- even if you don't have the time for the full course. I know Taylor personally and can vouch for his ability as a photographer, though I've not had the time to do one of the courses myself... It is on my list though! Acclaimed Bangkok-based photographer Jonathan Taylor of Photography School Asia is running a month-long photography ...
