Seems that the camera specs of the rumour isn’t very exciting. If that’s true, then Nikon is again proved to be product-oriented rather than market-oriented like Canon, who would typically launch new models regularly to keep the market interest. So the D300S and D700 might…

I didn’t even have time to blog about Nikon’s D3S announcement, and Canon throws out the EOS-1D Mark IV. And I’m not going to compare both cameras and advise which one is better. Seriously, if you have to wonder which camera is better for you,…

I was invited by Canon to get a hands-on to their latest imaging products. Held at 1Caramel at The Luxe (next to The Cathay), the set-up is so much more casual and relaxing than the previous one I attended. This time, no formal presentation from…

I love to use gadgets that are truly innovative, or at least gives me something genuine to talk about and easy for me to blog about. The Samsung ST550 is certainly one such device, which I got my hands on yesterday afternoon. Offering my review…

The trip to Jurong Bird Park was planned months in advance, because my wifey has to book the family pass from her office. So imagine our disappointment when we woke up to a rainy morning. But we proceeded to prepare for the outing as if…

Pentax K-7 DSLR

September 5, 2009 0

I was supposed to be out for a photoshoot this morning, but my model got called up for an F1-related event. Fortunately, I got the Pentax K-7 to keep me occupied. I am reviewing for T3 Magazine Singapore, and the review will be published in…

Nikon officially announces the D300S, the D3000, and 2 upgraded lenses, 18-200mm VRII and 70-200mm VRII. Here’s a brief summary of what’s important and what’s enhanced – in some cases, what’s unchanged. D300S: features that are new from Nikon– HD video recording 1280×720 at 24fps…

Rumour has it. Nikon should have 2 new DSLRs announced by end of Q3. And it’s probably the most unexciting announcement in years (surprise me, Nikon). Why? If rumours are accurate, the D300S will be no different from D300, except with video (most likely HD)…

Has someone come up with an acronym for the compact cameras with interchangeable lens? Maybe, say, DILC? Because the world has now another of such product in the market. Olympus PEN E-P1 follows Panasonic Lumix G1 and GH1 to be the next compact camera using…

The D3X Verdict

April 20, 2009 0

Shot using D300 and Tamron 90mm, window light Just submitted my D3X review to T3. Watch out for my review article, signed off as CT, on the magazine. And if you can’t find my name on the contributor list page, that’s because they left out…

I was invited to the Canon Blogger Event held at The Screening Room at Ann Siang Road. I was expecting a huge event but was pleasantly surprised that it was exclusively for a handful of around 20 guests. Before the presentation started, we chilled out…

I only got to play with the LX3 for 15 minutes before the battery went flat. T3 Magazine lent me the digicam for review but couldn’t find the charger. Nevertheless that 15 minutes is sufficient for me to form an opinion. The LX3 has already…

Lumix G1: Micro DSLR

January 7, 2009 2

The Lumix G1 is the world’s smallest DSLR, but to me, it’s really just an improved prosumer compact digicam that allows you to change lenses, with a large sensor that allows you to create high ISO low noise images similar to DSLR. Since there is…

While Nikon D90 is the first DSLR with video recording capability, Canon is the first DSLR with Full High-Definition (HD) video recording capability. Canon’s latest full-frame DSLR retains its “5D” brand and added a “Mark 2” suffix. Needless to say, there is not supposed to…

Fujifilm FinePix F60fd

September 25, 2008 0

T3 Magazine passed me the latest digicam to test. And I wasn’t impressed. Not that it’s not good. It’s every inch an F-series. For those who doesn’t know, the Fujifilm F-series are well known for their high ISO image quality and recently their advancement in…

D700 Road Test – Deon

August 17, 2008 0

I have been looking around for test subjects to try out the Nikon D700 before I had to return to T3 next week. Sheer luck, one of my ballet pianists was also interested in doing a photoshoot. So we arranged the shoot at her house,…

I seldom – actually, never – reveal my works in progress online until I complete it. In this case, I cannot contain myself on the exhilaration of testing the Nikon D700. Although it’s been a few weeks late since it launched officially in Singapore on…

For years, Nikon refuted rumours of developing full-frame DSLR, despite Canon dominating the full-frame DSLR market for many years. Then in August 2007, Nikon revealed the D3 and christened ‘FX’ to denote full-frame 35mm format (DX for 1.5x cropped-frame). D3 is the top-range DSLR to…
