No proof, pay the piper.
ouch, that's a pretty hefty fine!!!

and yes, that's pretty much why i do it... I don't like sitting in customs any longer then i have to.

Just picked up a second DSLR, a mint 1D MkIIn. 9,000 clicks on the body. Strange choice, you say? 5 year old camera, you say? Only 8 megapixels, you say? True, it's "low" resolution. But there is one thing this camera has that few others do - blazing, blazing fast auto focus. It's a perfect camera to take into the canyons and it cost less than the price of a 7D. Also, I'm not done with new acquisitions just yet...

^^^ Nice. I almost did the same thing this past Friday. Pulled the trigger on something else instead, though.

8 megapixels or not, it's going to do a good job, especially if you don't crop your pictures too much.

Nice purchase, mind me asking how much it set you back?

9000 shots is only breaking that camera in!!!
