Toronto Meet Up IV

Saturday November 8 2008 @ 2 PM at the Restaurant at High Park - SEE YOU THERE

It's been a while since our last meetup but wondering if anyone was interested in doing another one again. I'll also send out some PMs to cover some ground as well. Nice to have more and more people show up?

I presume weekends are better for everyone:
Nov 8/9, 15/16, 22/23, 29/30

Any suggestions for locations as well? Not sure if there are any big events in November, i'm not really in tune with what's going on.
Last time, the Distillery got voted way down, but might be a good suggestion to start.

Got your PM. For location, maybe we can try one of the pubs/bars along King St. between Bathurst and Spadina?

I have a shoot on the 15th and the 23rd...otherwise, my schedule is open for now.

Right now I am free, Distilliary sounds fine if a bit sterotypical but still I don't care so long as there is air.

Speaking of which, maybe sooner rather than later or it's gonna get COLD.

I'm back in Windsor at the moment but depending on timing it is remotely possible I could make it. I'll let you know if my schedule lines up with whatever the rest of you decide.

I won't be there...

...it's really really far away form me, but I just wanted to say how lucky you all are to have other photographers (on any system, not just pentax) to hang out with and have fun. I'm jealous!

Also, don't let Gooshin anywhere near your UV filters. .

off-topic, but

Well, I'll actually be in TO this fall (or is it winter now), but probably not until early-December

but hey...

just curious, what's involved in taking your camera out when its so cold out... I've always just taken my Canon G9 or similar P&S out when it's cold. How do you deal with condensation from going cold to warm. Do you have special mittens that allow you to access the tiny buttons. Can you still swap lenses safely?? My wife says it will be warmer next week there, but do any of you actually head out when it's really cold, like January and February??? (yes, normally I am a smart-ass, but these are real questions for a guy who's from So-Cal!)

I hate being gforced inside so i try to get out but frankly it's not very enjoyable. I can keep my body warm but my hands get very cold very quickly so i need to wear gloves so even pressing the shutter release is a battle.

IMHO it depends ont he wind, if it is not too windy I still get out there if I can.
