    That's the difference then. In the UK it makes no difference where the item is going, you have to take it to the post office regardless. Some countries need a customs declaration but that's just twenty seconds of writing on a small label.

    It is possible to do custom declarations and postage online through USPS.com. Then give it to your carrier or drop it in a mailbox.
    No driving to the P.O. or waiting in line involved.
    Shipping by Registered Mail has to be done in person.

    You cannot, however buy insurance on international items online. And you need the special clear plastic envolope for the customs form. You can order the envolopes from the usps. But I can never seem to find them when I need them.

    Many of the ones for sale online dont work well. And the QL17 is a real pain to fix.
    Ah, heres some nice pics of it.

    mx-450 monopod with walking stick top-knob and SLIK SBH-100DQ quick release ball head...25¢
    ...seems just fine to steady the camera when I find the shot, and me on long walks while looking for it...

    Bought a Minolta 100-200mm for $5.

    I just stopped at a thrift store on the way home from work and they had a Minolta 100-200mm/3.5 for $5.00. It is the Celtic brand so not the best of Minolta's lenses I hear. I haven't shot anything with it but it looks okay. They also had another camera there in a case but I don't need any more cameras and I didn't even look at what kind it was. I should stop in and see what kind it is at least. The zoom is my first zoom lense and although I have other lenses and really didn't need it, I just couldn't pass it up for $5. I suppose in its day it was a $200 lense, so why not? Ric.
