Showing off his equipment

Photography is definitely an expensive hobby, whether its a piece of plastic to diffuse the flash or a bag to house the camera and accessories, everything is bloody expensive. But nothing beats taking a good photo and Juon Wor here went to the extend of getting a 70-200 f2.8 lens. For those who have got no idea what that means, it’s an expensive lens that is used for zooming -_-” I mean a REALLY expensive lens and it cost more than my camera itself >_<”

I followed Juon Wor to get his lens and since he had a couple of hours to spare, we decided to walk along Penang Road to snap a few pictures.

I was already having a hard time carrying around my bag and my camera round my neck and God knows how Juon Wor was managing his crazy long lens with his camera. I tried it on my camera and it’s so heavy that i would probably need to lift weights if i ever decided to buy, which isn’t gonna happen :P

The weather too wasn’t kind enough as it was scotching hot.

Speaking of cameras, a few weeks back i met up with HungWei, Aaron and Hugo at Midvalley. Aaron finally got his flash and so he officiated it while we had dinner at some Vietnamese Restaurnt.

Aaron showing off his spanking new flash :P

The sight of flashes bouncing off the ceiling off and on had attracted a few people to have a glance on what’s happening on our table. Hung Wei in particular had fans throughout the dinner :P

Later on we adjourned to Kim Gary. Before Kim Gary, we followed Hugo to get his money changed for his backpacking trip.

Then out of the blue, Dolphin appeared out of thin air …

She too got excited with the flash and decided to play with it … which caused HungWei to …

… keep an eye on Angeline. See his ever ready hand. Just waiting to pounce if anything goes wrong. Hahahaha.

Now i shall continue my hibernation. Can’t wait to watch Italy VS Holland later at night :P

    Haha…quite long wor… but not as long as those western… haha. Just kidding, I’m not a big fan of Sony, but Sony does produces very good cameras. But I personally like to use Canon camera because the sharpness and color is much natural for me. I’m not a DSLR user, but I wonder my IS5 able to put those “long long” thing haha…

    superman: yeah i totally agree with you. SONY’s camera is good too but when i was buying alpha 200 hasn’t been launched so i opted for 400D. hahaha if IS5 can add then everyone also sure will be adding :P

    ryck: hahaha what u thinking ya ? :P

    neo: yeah the canon one is expensive and let’s not even talk about the one that comes with IS @_@

    steph: oooo i too like fixed lens :P but so far i only got myself 50mm f1.8 and i think that will be my only fixed lens. probably when i start earning then i could look into other fixed lens :P

    jess: hahaha it was meant to be like that, lol.

    hugo: lol not longer meh ? rofl :P
