My Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D

I’m a bokeh addict. My love for bokeh exist long before I even think of getting a DSLR.

What is bokeh? Bokeh are the out of focus areas in a picture. They’re real treat to the eyes. Blur, soft & mellowy… making the focus only area jump out of the picture (shallow depth of field).

Like this…


What has bokeh got to do with the 50mm lens? Well, the 50mm (f/1.4 or f/1.8) are the most loved lens by bokeh fanatics as they produce the loveliest sharpness & bokeh!

My New DSLR Camera!

Yo! yo! Yo! I’ve jumped into the DSLR camera bandwagon. Been calling myself a Nikonian for the past 2 days.

Why I buy a DSLR camera instead of a PnS camera:
1. Judging that I have to fork out more than RM1k to buy a decent PnS Lumix. I don’t know why but I like PnS Lumix very much.
2. I’ll be getting the same function & some little bit more in a new PnS camera. Not stimulating lo.
3. Camera weight is no longer an issue.
4. My heart kept urging me to buy DSLR.

Why Nikon and not Canon or other brands? Somehow I dislike Canon. When choosing a gadget like camera, handphone or computer, I first choose the brand that I like and then narrow it down to the model I like.

The End Of My Lumix… Or Maybe Not

17 days shy of 3 years… my Lumix digital camera FX-9 would have been 3 years old.

I’ve carelessly dropped my Panasonic Lumix once on the street. I’ve also dropped it during my Mount Kinabalu climb. But the most unforgiving drop happened yesterday… just a small drop from my dining table to the floor… and everything went kaput! The retractable lens barrel only close half-way as the inside filament is teared (I don’t know what it’s called. But it’s that paper thin thing that protects the lens).

I still can repair this camera. But is it worth it?

My Miracle Handphone Story

I was at home whole day on Wesak Day. Funny thing is my handphone is in my pocket the whole time. Reminded myself a couple of times to remove it but lupa. Then bathing time comes… I only realize N6060 babe is still in my pocket while undoing my pants. Carefully I place her on the rail amongst my clothes.

I refuse to ask someone to come and get my handphone knowing I will get a ‘Why you bring your handphone to the bathroom?’ lecture.

Swish swash swooch… goes my shower. Of course I still remember my handphone after the holy wash. ‘CAREFUL’ is in my head all the time. Unfortunately I lose to CAREFUL. The moment I remove my pants from the railing, I can hear ‘PLOOOP’ and a loud shriek “ARGGGGHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOoooo!” and one second later a large hurricane of panic voices outside my bathroom door. “What happen?”… “Why are you shouting?
