  1. Hey guys, I just cancelled my cable and is thinking of signing up for Rogers Gamecentre Live. However, when I checked out the list of viewable games for Canucks (I live in Vancouver), it seems like as many as 46 games are not available to view due to regional blackouts. To me that is a deal breaker! Am I reading the list right? (as I said, I have no cable subscriptions anymore).
  2. So here's something I'm finding annoying and wondering what's causing this. I've noticed that when I get my picture taken or I'm talking to people that, even though I'm looking straight at the lens or making eye contact with people, it'll look like I'm not and instead it appears that I'm looking just slightly off to the side. It looks weird haha and annoying. Basically I'll have to actually look off to the other side to compensate and even then it still doesn't look like I'm making eye contact. Could it be my contacts? I'm nearsighted so can't really test it out without contacts since I wouldn't be able to see anything.
  3. Thanks! Probably go to Crescent Beach first and use that parge gravel parking lot...less risk of fire. We'll have fire extinguishers just in case. Also would the sparks damage paint on my car? lol For settings I'll start at iso 200, f/8 and shoot for 30 seconds and go from there. By straight circle I take it you mean straight on to the camera?
  4. It is lol you just put it in a whisk and chain and light it up and spin it. I'm looking for locations where I can do this safely yet get great photos. I was thinking Crescent Beach.
  5. Hi guys, Can you suggest some good spots for steel wool photography? Obviously placese that aren't grassy but I was wondering if there are any hidden gems out there. Thanks!
  6. Anyone know the name of the song being played after Hansen almost scored with Price? It was about 3:20 left to play during puck drop. Thanks!

  8. Has anyone done this hike while carrying a SLR camera? I'm worried that it'll be too exhausting if I bring my camera plus two lenses, but the views seem absolutely amazing and is just begging for photos to be taken. I did the Diez Vistas trail at Buntzen lake carrying my 5D3 and a single wide angle lens. I'm tempted to bring my 70-200 as well for Mt Cheam. Bad idea?
  9. Hi guys, I'd like to go paddling near White Rock pier, but the closest place where I know to launch from is Crescent Beach, which for me is a little further from the Pier than I'd like. Is there somewhere closer to the white rock pier where I can park my car and launch the kayak without walking too far? Thanks!
  10. Hey guys, I need suggestions for a large farmland or wheat field for a photo shoot I'm doing. Ideally near the Langley or Abby area, with view of sunset or barn or both! Thanks!
  11. Any suggestions for camp fire songs that's NOT COUNTRY? I'm talking about songs like the following: 1) In the Woods Somewhere - Hozier 2) Oats in the Water - Ben Howard 3) Let in the River - Dotan Or slightly higher tempo songs like 1) Renegade - X Ambassadors. 2) Stolen Dance - Milky Chance 3) Rest in Happiness - Broken Back Again, not interested in country songs. Thanks!
  12. Thanks a bunch for the feedback. I was just gonna pack my 0.7L water bottle, but guess I'll pick up a camel or something.
  13. It's just a day hike. Like I said the only "hiking" I've done is at Dog Mountain. I've done plenty of park trails but I don't count those as hiking.
  14. Hi guys, looking for some feedback from people who have hiked the Diez Vistas trail at Buntzen Lake. I'm doing this hike with a few friends this weekend for the first time and I'm not an experienced hiker at all. I'm moderately fit, kayak a lot and lift, but the only "real" hiking I've done thus far is Dog Mountain, which I found to be moderate in terms of physical exertion. I'm wondering if I should leave my SLR camera at home and just take my GoPro instead. Also how steep and dangerous is the trail? Any other tips are more than welcome.
  15. Hi guys, Currently have the Samsung Galaxy S3 (Telus) and over the past two weeks I've seen quite a few error messages along the lines of "Device memory is corrupted". I'm thinking it's almost time to get a new phone. Not going to sign a contract this time since mine is pretty decent ($55/month, 5GB data, evenings and weekends, 500min), plus it doesn't expire for another year anyway and I can't really wait. I'm looking at the iPhone 5s and Sony Xperia Z3. Upside of iPhone is that, well, it's an iPhone. All my Apple friends tell me that even after two years their phones are operating with no slow downs at all, unlike my Android phone. Downside is that its camera and screen aren't as good as the Xperia Z3. The Z3 has better camera and screen and processor, but it is an Android system. And to be honest up until this point, my experience with all Android devices is that they all slow down more and more with each update for some weird reason. For my part, I just need a phone that runs buttery smooth with no slow downs even after multiple updates, a good camera (front & back) that beats my current S3 hands down. Other than that, I don't do very much with my phone at all except facebook, texting, and messaging. So Z3 or 5s? Or other suggestions on even where to buy my new phone? I'd need them to be unlocked too. Thanks!
