the new member

welcoming...


ahaaa...the Canon EOS 30D! i know it's a bit outdated, back in 2006 1st manufactured pun. but the 8.2MP sensor is the legendary sensor from 20D. woot. meaning: excellent low light performance, low noise at high ISO :D what else, 5fps burst speed, spot metering (new to xxD series though, starting from 30D) and a whopping 100,000 shutter life count! i'm not gonna make my own review here, so feel free to visit dpreview and dcresource for more info ;)

anyway, this is captured by my beloved E-500:
  • Camera: Olympus E-500
  • Shutter: 1/160
  • Aperture: f3.5
  • ISO: 200
  • Focal length: 14 mm
  • Mode: Manual
  • Setting: External flash (Vivitar 285HV) bounced straight up at full power (GN120)
  • Post-processing: Cropped - iPhoto
anyway, it's a 2nd hand camera bought off from my friend, however the shutter count is still very low (not even 10%!) hence the like-new look. i'm very happy to get my hands on one of this once monster (yeah i know, not as monster-ish as the 5D and the likes, but still on par with D200 though...).

this camera is still mainly used in the mid-end level of the DSLR owners and i'm hoping that this would be my batu loncatan towards producing better and better pictures :D by the way, that's my first lens for my new DSLR, the 50 mm f1.8 II. yeah2, it's a cheap lens, mestilah sbb duit saye dah abis kot T_T

enough babbling, wish me luck with this camera and also for my exams! cuakkkk...

please provide me escape...
