Already have around 20 figures sitting in shipping boxes and on the verge of placing another ~10 figure order. I don't plan on legitimately unboxing it until my living situations squared away, however I do my due diligence and open the shipping packages to check for any blatant broken/missing figure parts before carefully putting everything back including shipping paper etc. I wouldn't open the shipping packages at all, but given that they could sit for months on end, I'd rather get any replacements/returns etc squared away within the allotted time frame. Either way it should be pretty fun when I document and open a mountain of shipping boxes in the future.

>>119229717
Unpack as in remove bubble wrap or unpack as in actually opening the figure boxes and pull them out. I agree it's overkill if you're saying pulling them out of the boxes.

Posting each individual box is kinda silly beyond 2-3 boxes.

This. People don't understand that the sheer volume of imports means that the chances of anything of yours being checked without any real cause are insanely low.

Mandarake-tan on the right searching for your orders.

They actually go around with a clipboard looking for the figures, so when you get "item sold out", don't forget the work they put in for you gaijins.

When I went there after C87 day 3, all staff were in cosplay, but I was in a rush and didn't take pics.
There was a cute girl working on the figures floor but I don't remember who she was dressed as. Guy in pic was Harry Potter. The register person was a touhou trap.

I'm a huge retard and didn't take a picture of the outside, but the Akiba Mandarake Complex is 8 floors, here's the view from the top.

Only the top floor is figs, others are stuff like doujins, games etc.

It was a pretty heavenly place.

That might make sense. The skirt seems too slim to pull off by itself so probably the entire legs part. Can't entirely see where where plastic goes but I'm so scared of breaking stuff. I'll try though.

I think I used 4k for 16 days.

Something like 2.5k for plane tickets + food + hotel and the rest is spending.
Places I stayed at were about $50/night and I had a budget of $30 per day on food which is plenty if you go to those semi-fast food places with cheap gyudon and stuff.

I'm asking even if it wasn't, I'm not very familiar with DSLR photography, but it seems a lot of anons are. Again, sorry for bothering you.

>>119235280
Unless this is EMS you have no reason to even be concerned.
And if it's EMS then it's pretty average considering the holidays.

Toady?

>>119235354
Well, why did you pick that particular lens with that featureset in the first place?

I have yet to get one myself, but people seem to prefer fixed focal length 50mm lenses for figure photography. Those have a lower f-stop than zoom lenses which allows for a shallower DoF and thus more bokeh. 50mm is also considered equivalent to the normal human perspective.

Anyway, you probably should learn shooting with the kit lens before making additional purchases. Lenses are an endless money sink so you should have some basic experience before buying more.

DHL is a huge problem with understanding.. well.. plainly printed address label, basically.
I never really managed to detect what the problem was.
Once they put a sticker over my address, though.

I always managed to retrieve the packages, though, but it takes multiple hours of effort on my part.

It's EMS. But usually despite when I order, it goes Tokyo INT same day as posting/collection.

I was thinking it might not until the 5th, due to that whole break thing in Japan.
>>
>>119235651
I picked it just because it fits my idea of what I need for my D200, having the 70-300 range allows me to take other pictures as well. And for the price of the lens it seems worthwhile.

I sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of soaring over the oilfields dropping hot sticky loads on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I'm fucking retarded but I don't care, I'm beautiful. I'm having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me "Apache" and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can't accept me you're a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.

Yeah, that's what it seems to be good for, an allrounder that's also good for outdoor shots.
>>
>>119235018
That particular lens is horrible for macro, or generally close-ups. You're better off with the default 18-55mm kit lens that comes with the camera than that.

Talking from experience since I own that particular lens, it's better for outdoors to begin with.

You can though buy a bunch of extension tubes to get the focus down to 30cm or less, since it usually needs past one meter to get a proper focus on objects.

Either stick with the kit lens, or buy the standard nikon 50mm f/1.8. If you're using an APS-C sensor, you want to buy the nikon APS-C 35mm f/1.8 equivalent.

Or if you have money, buy a Zeiss Otus.

Thank God for that 4% discount. I'd never be able to afford it without that.

Cons in an Amazon review:
>-Canon's latest firmware ver 1.1.4 does not have the lens aberration correction data for this lens. As a result you do not get the "in house" peripheral illumin option. So there is some normal amount of vignetting (between f1.4 to 2.8) and a slight amount of distortion that is very nicely corrected by the latest Camera RAW (version 8.4) and Photoshop, which have the updates.
>-You might have to get canon Egs focusing screens to help you focus wide open.
>-Lens hood hard to lodge in the reverse position.
Dat terminology. These people could be completely making shit up and I wouldn't know even know.

Gold plating would actually affect the performance due to the high heat absorption. Thats the reason why canon L glass is that odd shade of beige, it helps insulate the elements from heat.
