Just a few days ago I was raving about a rumoured compact digital camera from Sony that will give Canon's S95 a run for its money.
Today, Sony has officially announced the Sony Cybershot RX100, a compact digital camera with a kick-ass resolution of 20 megapixels and obviously aimed at serious photographers.Read More
Two piece of news appeared on my Facebook newsfeed just 15 minutes ago and I felt the need to write a quick blog entry, even if it means eating into my lunch time.
The first piece of news was the announcement from blogger Justin Lee that the Canon 5D Mark III will be made available on 17 March at a retail price of S$4,699 (Body) and S$5,999 (Kit).
Let me share with you a personal experience of mine back in late 2008.
I was a hardcore Canon loyalist and like many others, eager to get my hands on the 5D Mark II. When the first few pieces was made available in late 2008, I was one of the lucky few to get one.
I bought it for $4500. (I think...)Read More
When my mom asked me to help choose a camera (and chip in some funds as well) for my dad to bring for his upcoming holiday, I started looking around for options.
While cameras like the Canon S100 and Fujiflm X10 makes total sense, my dad dropped the bomb on me (and my wallet) saying that he would like an EVIL camera and a long lens instead of compact cameras.
He doesn't even know what does EVIL stands for.Read More
Inspired by a post by Kirk Tuck and news of Canon's EOS 1D X, I have decided to write this entry which has been on my mind for a while.
Sure. The Canon 1D X is a monster with 14 frames per second shooting at ISO beyond 102400 at 18 megapixels. However, how many of you truly need such a performance? Be honest with yourself on that.Read More
I have never owned an Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens (EVIL) camera until the folks at Sony came along and asked if I am interested to do a review of the Sony Nex C3.
I did have some hands on with the Olympus EP-3 (and EP-2) and the Fuji X-100 prior to this and was feeling quite good about comparing the Nex C3 to them.
Therefore it was really pointless to write a matter of fact review and I decided to take a different angle when writing this entry.Read More
When I was in China during my recent trip, I did not wish that I had a better camera, a sharper lens or steadier tripod with me.
Rather, I was constantly reminding myself how things would have been a lot different had I brought along a spot meter.Read More
This entry is a continuation from my last review on the PSKiss black and white filters for Adobe Photoshop CS5.
After that review, the owners of PSKiss has kindly agreed to pass me two of his most popular filters to try out. I was more than happy to help him with the review.Read More
One of the biggest perks of my new job is that I get to try out all sorts of camera equipment that I don't normally get to use (or afford). With that, I decided to bring this Gitzo GH 2781 QR ball head home to 'test' it out muahahaha. First observation: The knob to tighten/loosen the ball head is huge. And I think it is an understated fact that tripod makers are making life difficult for us with hard-to-twist knobs. I may be a big fan of the Manfrotto 410 Junior Gear Head but I hate the frictionless knobs especially when I have the occasional sweaty palms under the sun (who doesn't??).Read More
I had the honour to doing a review for PSKiss, a company that develops one-click-of-the-mouse filters that converts your images into stunning images. The set of filters I received from them are the black and white filters. The image above is taken during my recent trip to Huangshan, China. It was converted into black and white using the PSKiss Creative Mono filter with +7 grain. Hit the jump for more about the filters.Read More
Came back from my 'grad trip' to Huangshan, China and Hong Kong yesterday night. Here's some of my favorite photos from my Canon Powershot S95. Will post my film shots as soon as I get them back from fotohub. Can I also just add that I love my s95? Amazing digital camera that does all that's required of it.Read More
