I have a confession to make. I have been bitten by the full frame (FF) bug. But that is hardly news to you huh? So what makes a full frame different from my own 40D? The most enticing reward of going FF is the amazing bokeh that you get. Some purist are against bokeh, but bokeh is […]

I’ll be frank, I was being a real dickhead when my wife asked me to teman her watch this movie. “Come on, it’s a Malaysian-chinese made movie, it has sure got to have some really corny lines and stupid slapsticks”. She has asked me to go watch it since last week when it has just […]

Okay, owning the 40D after the 350D was the worst kept secret among my friends. But what you didn’t know was that there was actually a plan to pull a prank on you guys! In May last year I have made the decision to sell off my trusty old 350D. Lots of people were surprised, […]

I am going to write about a machine that eats the order out of a car…….       …….. or about a funny japanese translation that went haywire: Bought this thing from Daiso, inside IOI Mall Puchong. It’s only RM5, but the main reason I bought it is because of the misinterpretation. 😀

This, a digital camera, worth almost RM1,500 a pop! In reality I owe her this since her birthday last year, so it’s well overdue actually! 😛 This is the camera, the new Canon Powershot S90.     Remember when I mentioned that I wanted to buy a PnS? I wasn’t kidding! Why did I choose […]

….. and I gladly accepted the offer! =D   Picture taken by wifey today, more than 2 weeks after my last shave. I get a lot of weird looks and comments from people, as if they are saying that a chinese guy should not keep a long beard like that. Rather stereotypical aren’t they? *sigh* […]

I have been keeping a very close eye on the Sandisk compact flash cards and its price fluctuations. Reason being I am seriously considering getting myself a new card for my camera. My current 2 x 2 GB cards are insufficient for my workflow. I take mostly RAW files, especially when I am on a […]

How many of you remember taking a photo, only to find out that the photo turned out bad due to incorrect exposure? (It could be due to underexpose (picture turning out too dark) or overexpose (picture turning too bright).) Even though in the world of digital photography where the camera decides everything for you, things […]
