I remember Najah commented on my photos from our bloggers' meeting, she'd say that it's the wrong camera - hehehe. So, after almost five years using Sony Cybershot P8, I am ready to learn something new and step up on learning DSLR camera!
So, on my trip to KL last couple of days back, celebrating Labor day and Wesak Day holidays, I made a visit to Sungei Wang Plaza looking for camera shops. I found out that there are six TARITA shops carrying different camera and videocam brands. After checking few shops, I finally made my purchase - the Nikon D40x.
I choose Nikon D40x after reading good reviews on photo review sites, its good price, good camera built, great specs, and need I mention that Nikon D200 is the camera those cool forensic cops use on CSI (I know, it's not D40x)! But what a brilliant product placement!
So, the shop gave a crappy camera bag and I had to get a new one. Frashad was kind to take me out to Click 'and' Snap shop in Komtar and I got myself the blower, UV-filter, and a Lowepro bag. And now I'm broke but it's all worth it! There's a high learning curve for me as this is my first SLR experience and yes, I plastic wrapped my Nikon D40x manual because I know I will need it so often for references.
Enjoy my photos on my Flickr page. Seriously, after using Flickr I totally understand why it is so famous among photographers. The interface provides you with the software experience asif you are in a desktop environment! In fact, this blog entry is written from Flickr which provides seamless interoperability with multiple blogging systems/providers.
