Photo Gear

First of all, Iím not a professional photographer, though I wish Iíam, probably someday. Started early on my college day (back in 1987) using Yashica 35mm FX-3/2000 (merged with Kyocera at that time). Itís low end model but serve me well in starting to use SLR camera. Learn from KODAKô photography pocket guide book for basic photography since then I fond lotís of fun shooting with camera. After the camera mirror broke incidentally and the meter is out of function, I stop taking picture with SLR basically due to no moneyÖ ďsighĒ . Since then busy trying to make money. First introduction to digital camera is back in 2000 or 2001. I bought the camera Canon A10 in Sim Lim Singapore around 300 USD at that time 1.3MPixel is still well up in the middle of the digital camera pixel war. Soon I found out itís getting obsolete rapidly, every year another new camera with a better Mega Pixel is introduced.

In the beginning of 2005 my friend bought a pro-consumer digital camera, a Sony brand. That is the time when I was triggered back to the glory old days of photography and with the internet knowledge base which is now easily accessible all the knowledge of photography technique, equipment and photo sharing itís become apparent that digital photography is here. Then I bought Canon 300D based on the reviews and seems to be a good entry point to DSLR. Soon I caught into a very expensive game of equipping myself with all the gadgets. New lenses, accessories, etc. So here Iím back into the photography interest. For sure Iím far from good, but being connected to the community online and talking and sharing with friends really speed up some of my approach to photography today. Not to forget the old way of getting knowledge, reading books and internet browsing. Magazines and books is one of the good way of getting more insights and knowledge especially when traveling. My work enable to travel to some place and Iím sure I will use that opportunity to take more pictures. SoÖ keep shooting, keep experimentingÖ its digital.

Time has pass by since 2005, from Canon 300D, move on to 20D then upgraded to 50D. The cameras also equipped with several key lenses from 17-40mm from Canon, 70-200 f4, 50mm f1.8, Sigmas, Tamrons, etc.
Since 2013, I've sold most of my Canons and move in 2014 to the Mirrorless. I consider Fuji as the main choice, with Olympus mirrorless as my 2nd thought. Finally I pick Fuji. Now I'm in a Fuji Guy bandwagon. Any camera though is a mere tools without knowledge and practices its mostly useless.
