Gundam Model Kit Challenge 2008 at Sungei Wang Plaza : Gundam showdown 2008

Last Saturday I went to Sungei Wang Plaza for this Gundam Showdown final competition 2008 which located at the concourse level. I have been come here for the previous years competition, I found that this season was not as good as last year competition. I think is maybe I really miss out the Gundam Seed version.

The place was pack and the light condition was poor that day, I found it hard to capture nice model kit here. Anyhow, snap with flash and you might found the reflection the plastic case and the result was not nice at all, so I use slow shutter that day and come out with many blur images.

Gundam Showdown 2007 at Sungei Wang Plaza : Part 2

Continuese from the previous post Gundam Showdown 2007 session. I have took many photos from the gundams showdown exhibitions so I have to seperate into few parts to post it.


Saw many people taking out thier cameras and handphone to take shots the gundams and mobile suits. I also tak kiasi that time, I pull out my camera and snap continuesly. It was difficult to snap as the casing will reflect the light and bad light condition. Many people might thinking that open flash light will get better image but I was wrong coz the image will burst because of the reflection from the case. Besides, many people might walking around so that u will found that crowd will became the background of the gundams.

As a result, My setting was:
M mode
Iso 400
WB (Auto)
Shutter 1/8-20 s depend on situation
Stick tight ur lense to the case for avoiding the overwhelming reflection. I learn this from the last year…hehe

Zaku- The sword is from one of the Gundam Seed series if not mistaken. Nice backdrop and posing of the mobile suit. I rate it 8/10.

This always my favourite. Keroro Robot MK2!!! It was aways welcome for many ages. The original colors of the figure itself is very simple and nice already but I dunno why he repaint it again. An advance for the backdrop I vote it 6/10

Zeta Gundam riding on a bike.. Lolz. It was kinda funny but I like the creative of this stuff. I rate it 7/10
