    The gorilla pod and drawing tablet. I moved from New Zealand to Serbia in January 2012 for personal reasons. I took with me only the necessary items due to very high relocation costs and airplane luggage limit. the drawing tablet pen is not showing signs of life and I left my tripod behind with a thought that I am going to get a new one here. But, due to my current financial circumstances that new tripod is still on the wishing list and it seems it’s going to stay there for a very long time.

  • Paul

    I’d like a Mamiya RB67, a 90mm f/3.8, a waist-level viewfinder and a 220 back, but I don’t want to pay for the ongoing film-developing costs.

    So maybe a Sigma 150mm in a Nikon mount, and maybe a D800E to bolt it to.
