Movie–De rouille et d’os (Rust and Bone)

Went to see this movie today: Rust and Bone.

French with english subs, a very well paced and soulful movie.

If you have time on your hands, I’d recommend it. Smile

Matrin Maple 130 Photography Bag

HI Everyone, (And Victoria)

Firstly, thanks for reading my blog… didn’t think anyone did Smile 

I got a request from a lovely person via facebook asking about a camera bag I bought last year ( this link here ) and what I thought.. so I thought I’d write a little review on it.. as terrible as I am at these things, here goes…

(it’s mostly a cut/paste from my reply) and I’ve added photos at the bottom.

I got it  in Feb 2011, and still have it. I use it fairly often, and it’s been wonderful. It’ is quite light weight at about 1.2 kg, which is very acceptable as it is a very well made and durable bag. I have it decided into 5 pouches, two either side and the centre for the camera body. It’s fairly deep, so it takes the Canon 70-200 nicely, and I pack a few more lenses and the 580ex2 flash in there also. It has ample internal side pockets for things like paperwork, accessories, memory cards, and so on, and a few good outer pockets also, namely one on either side where the shoulder strap joins on, perfect size that fits the standard side pump water bottles.. so always good for that smile The only thing I would say, is that as it is a two-space wide bag, its a little big sometimes and I wonder about a single space, so i mean, to take a single lens and body, as opposed to two lenses side by side. just to make it a bit more slimmer.. but then I always want to carry a few different lenses so I never end up buying a new bag.

My main bag is a Lowepro Trekker Plus AW, which is fantastic, holds most all of my kit and randomness, and my old slimmer laptop, and I have used this to travel over seas with. I got that because it fits within the restraints of hand-held baggage compartment.
