  1. Hi people, I am a first time renter and just paid my bond + first month's rent. Lease signing will be done soon. I need some advice. I have read that I should take timestamped pictures of the property when I move in and keep them as evidence. Now this may seem very stupid, but I want to know a good camera model which timestamps the pictures. I am not a big photography enthusiast - my only camera goes unused most of the time and doesn't have the feature. Any pointers on a good cheap camera that I can buy would be much appreciated. Any other tips/tricks/words of wisdom are also welcome. Thanks for taking the time to read and reply to my message.
  2. MORE than 115 leadfoots a day are being snared by a new fixed speed camera on Kwinana Freeway in Como - the latest cash cow for road-safety coffers. WA Police statistics show that 3597 drivers were issued with fines in the first month after the camera was switched on in mid-July. Of those, 120 speedsters were travelling at more than 20km/h over the 100km/h speed limit, including eight hoons at speeds of 41km/h or more. The Como speed trap is the state's second fixed freeway speed camera. The first, on Mitchell Freeway in Innaloo, has nabbed a staggering 14,759 people since January. But, unlike the Innaloo camera, the Como device has been rolled out with little fanfare. State Traffic Operations Commander Michelle Fyfe said police would continue to target drivers who risked their lives and the safety of others. "The speed limits are there for a reason. They are there to keep everybody safe and to make sure everybody gets to their destination safely," she said. Late last year, WA Police bought several German-made metal cabinets to house speed cameras on freeways and highways. Previously, the only fixed devices were dual speed and red-light cameras at intersections. Other fixed freeway speed cameras are due to be installed on Kwinana Freeway in Success, Roe Highway in Willetton and on Mitchell Freeway in Stirling before October. The rollout comes two years after Monash University Professor Max Cameron mooted fixed speed cameras and point-to-point for WA freeways and highways as a key road safety measure. Police Minister Liza Harvey said fixed speed cameras were part of the State Government's $30 million enhanced speed-enforcement program. From July 1, all revenue from fixed speed and red-light cameras goes to the Road Trauma Trust Funds, which aims to reduce death and serious injury by upgrading roads, increasing alcohol and drug testing and extra police traffic enforcement. Kwinana Fwy near Como and South Perth is one of WA's most favoured speeding stretches, with 20,283 fines netting $3 million issued in the 2010-2011 financial year. NABBED: THE COMO FREEWAY CAMERA'S FIRST MONTH OF OPERATION. July 12 to August 12, 2012. Under 9km/h: 2620 :mad: Between 10-19km/h: 857 Between 20-29km/h: 92 Between 30-39km/h: 20 More than 41km/h: 8 Source: WA Police

    I just took the plunge to upgrade to DSLR. I know there are a few good photographers on here and wondered if anyone has any good advice/tips for getting good results.... or just some cool pics you've taken and would like to share? Outside of basic kit, what would you count as essentials/really good to have extras (filters etc)? Mostly I'll be doing outdoor portraits etc but bit of everything really.

    Camera advice please

    Hi, I need a new digital camera, but I know nothing about cameras, have had a Nikon coolpix 12 megapix, which has died, so which one to buy (in UK by the way)? Never even used the few settings that the Nikon has, I just like to aim, shoot, get a nice quick picture download and that's it. Any advice please? thanks Cal:biggrin:
  5. Well, I'm looking to buy a new digital camera. It must be compact and around the £250 mark. I like the look of the Canon 220SX but I am no expert. Anyone got any advice or recommendations? Thanks.

  7. :confused:Hi, how long do you have to hold your breath in NSW to know if you got caught on a speed camera? Not sure about one over the Christmas period.
  8. Hi all, I am due to be moving to Aus in the next couple of months and I was just wondering whether they will try to charge me duty on electronics of mine when I do. Things that I'll be taking with me on the plane such as SLR camera with lenses, laptop and possibly some sound equipment. Is there an import duty exemption for people moving to Aus or would I be liable to pay for things I bring in when I move there? Matt
  9. Hello, This is my first ever post ( never used a forum before!) so i hope my message is in the right place! I am a news camerawoman with 11 years experience and understand i am on the new SOL list of skilled worker. After getting my skills assessed, i know i will have to find a employer to sponsor me. But in the media industry, jobs don't come by frequently so i was wondering if any fellow camera operator has ever been sponsored by a tv company in Australia? How can i find out if there is a shortage of camera operator in the country? My last question is this one then: if your job in on the SOL list, does that necessarily mean there is a shortage for that particular skill? Thank you in advance to anybody who will find the time to answer me & have a lovely day! Sophie.

    Digital Camera for sale

    DIGITAL CAMERA FOR SALE Digital camera for sale Looking to sell a digital camera - I don't need it any longer as I'm in the hospital. I'm including the last photo that I took so that you have some idea about the picture quality.
  11. ughh! on the way home from the shops i passes a marked police car on the side of the road doing speed checks, was well within the limit and carried my way on then about 20 mins down the road i see a 5 year old random car parked at the side of the road, no camera signs anywhere but as i get close to it i get a single camera flash from the front bumper area...... arggghhhhhh! looked down and i'm doing 115 in a 100 zone! So that will be a well deserved 3 demerits and $200ish fine i guess i did balance out the bad by picking up an elderly couple who'd broken down 10 mins further down the road and giving them a lift to their home.

    Lost Camera

    Hi, Can you help? I lost my camera a couple of days ago while visiting Adelaide, Stupid me has put it down somewhere and walked away without it, The most likely places are Hungry Jacks at the end of Rundle mall or on a bench in the Brighton beach area but it could have been anywhere, Like I said stupid me I perhaps deserve to lose it for not being more careful, so keep the camera, but what I need is the memory card as it contains 2 family birthdays and our visit to Perth. The camera is a Fuji A510 in a Samsonite case with spare batteries and spare memory card inside. I know this is a long shot but you never know, someone must have it. Many thanks for any help anyone can give, Paul.
