Nikonian Photography Talks and Tips at Ikano : Day 2

We came here for the next day to seek for more interesting talks and models shooting. Before reach Ikano we went to One Utama 1st for the Animax Custom Contest shooting session but I didn’t manage to shot a lot from there.
About 30 minutes we stay at One Utama after that we switch to Ikano for the Nikoninan Photography talks and tips. Oh ya!!! forget to mention who was coming to this event last week and they was Hiew, Nkwai, Ahkwong, Lee Peng and Anston.

Image btm Right: Most annoying person of the day, always use his elbow to block my shooting area. 40% of photo got his head, arms and elbow. WTF!!

Thankz for Hiew borrowing me his tele lens. Although it was beyond F4 but under some light condition it still roxks!!! Got image stabilization is not the same lor. I try to shoot on a gal from full tele range 250mm as below. The result is slighty blur but of coz with shutter of 1/20.

I don’t explain much here, so let just see the photos below:





I finally know her name.. SHARON!! 😀


ok, my post end up here.

Finally I belong to the DSLR family

This was my babe FZ50 which has been accompany with me for 2 years. It help me a lot during event, wedding shooting and travelling although it was not a DSLR but it still keeping come up with brilliant results. Nothing much to complain about it with Leica lense, Mega OIS stabilizer, F2.8-3.7, range from 35mm-420mm (no crop) with superb macro shot. If this spec go to DSLR lens it might cost you a great amount.


Too bad my DMC FZ50 cannot work well during low light condition and ISO handling. To boost up the effect I have bought myself a olympus Flash FL36 which can fit into my Lumix hot shoe. Panasonic external flash light was too expansive that time so no choice i have to switch to Olympus flash.As a result, It really enhance the image during night event while wedding and party. But another thing that my camera cannot do well is the bokeh and depth of field.

Times go by, I taken many shooting during events, fashion show, travelling….. People with big machine, lens that long like elephant nose always looking me like weird. I start to wondering miny camera cannot shot issit?!! Some people (not mean all)with DSLR might go infront my shooting area and blocking me, it make me feel like ” We were pros so we have the right to go infront, Excuse me digital camera. WTF!!!”

This is a worst incident I have face so far, I went for a corporate shooting session. After the task finish. The people incharge come infront me and said that he expect people will use pro camera to shoot but not digital camera please. I refuse to talk to the guy who incharge and directly went to the boss show the pictures and let him to decide, lucky it past…phew. Even My fren Ahkwong told me that nowadays people were realistic and I can’t get a good paid if I still continue using prosumers camera.

At the end, I really struggle to this Canon EOS 40D. It was the best price and best buy in the market now as semi pro levels. I heard many guides from my frends, and they suggest me Nikon, Sony, Canon. Sales person in the camera shop try to approach me with Olympus and even tell me that Crop factor 2 is best technologies now….lolz. Anyhow, my dream machine is Leica but really expansive lor..

By the way, so poor now. I just bought the body only. Super Thankz for Eugene and nkwai temporaly borrow me kit lense. I try to get some nice lens asap. An advance, eugene really help me a lot for getting this body.
