I had a chance to sneak off and check out the Arcadia Festival in Montreal last weekend. As a first-timer, I'd describe it as a weird mix of expo, LAN and nightclub. It has some new and/or fancy games to see and play, a variety of tournaments, Guitar Hero 3 areas, couches and consoles, retro games, Guitar Hero 3 areas, portable games, various PC setups, and Guitar Hero 3 areas. It also has shiny lights, live music, and beer available at the concession (ftw). I've been having some fun with our new still camera lately, so I brought it along and snapped these pics.

Did it, by any chance, have Guitar Hero 3?

"Mixture between LAN and a Nightclub", interesting combination.

Glad to see some of the fans went to it, glad you had fun.

Also, FIRST.

Is this the same Camera Geoff had at the Ep14 premiere in TO? It looked nice but some of those pics..it really needs some tweaking and adjusting icon_confused.gif

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

I was at the Arcadia Festival as a part-time staff. It was real fun icon_biggrin.gif

Maybe next year we can arrange some kind of PP meeting.

It's the Canon EOS 5D.

The place was covered with non-stop moving multi-colored lights (which you can see in Teh End). That plus the overall club-like darkness of the event (and not having a flash) made it easily the most difficult conditions I've shot in yet. Fifteen minutes in I was thinking of giving up - I could snap 10 pics in 3 seconds of the same subject with the same settings and each one would have drastically different results! pp_smiley5.gif Btw if anyone is pr0 @ photoshop or photography, I'd love to hear some constructive feedback (PM me!).

Glad you guys dig the pics, it's a blast for me to take them!

And it was great meeting you too Lauren, congrats again on pwning MVG 2007!
