What DO You Want?

Spewing Shit

What is NOT lacking in our country these days is Politicians spewing racists comments and causing uneasiness amongst the populace.

Just what is this "SI MATA SEPET" all about?

Or this "SI BOTTOL" labelling all about?
You are all supposed to be 'educated' and matured leaders that is supposed to show good examples but chose to gutter speak instead.

Then again, why, their bosses still remain silent is anyones' guess.

Yes, please continue creating all these shit and see if the world cares. Foreign Investors certainly notices. Now we know why they are not coming here.

Here is an example of the biggest chibai mouth in the world!

That reminds me of the first picture of a rhinocerous having a bad case of Cirit Birit! (the runs)

Bravo GH2!

I Want it!

The new Panasonic Lumix GH2 micro Four Thirds Camera is fanstastic in every Technological aspect from shooting HD Video and Stills 'without Compromise'!
Launched at Fotokina hours ago, reviewers are all going GaGa with Oooos!..and Ahhhs!

In summary, if one is using an HD camcorder (last years model) and is wanting to change into the professional type, it would cost you an arm and a leg! And, as at yesterday, there is no camcorder that have larger sensor for cinematic d.o.f effect. plus lens inter-changeability. The Lumix GH2 does all that hear can continue shooting photos with quality equals to that from bigger (current) DSLRs!! The GH2 is now a Photo AND Video camera... no compromise!

Prices announced for the GH2 with kit lens 14mm-140mm is at USD1,450.00

The 'End' is Near!

Photokina 2010
Tomorrow, many buyers of new photographic equipment would give a sigh of relief when all major camera makers launches new models for the world market.

This once in 2 years event is being held in Cologne, Germany.

I am involved indirectly. Very indirectly, because of my (bad) timing (maybe a good omen) as I am about to switch from using a HD camcorder right up to the top at 'full frame' DSLR.

Since ten days, sleepless nights and nightmares were experienced. (see, photography is a dangerous hobby indeed.) And 'secret news leaks' are trickling through day by day.

I was very keen on the new Sony Handycam NEX VG10, a prosumer camcorder that shoots in Full HD 1080p. I was so sure that it would be da dream baby!
Then, my ex lover called!

" Hey Baby! I am back and I am badder than before. I am now called the GH2 from Panasonic. I heard that you have your eye on the Sony chick and she is a camcorder."Moreover I am now better equipt to excite your senses and you will be amazed to see what I can really do for your birds!"
The Panasonic GH2 (that replaces GH1) is a micro Four/Third system that is completely new and is doing away with the old design (the SLR).Unfortunately, it is still being used as the DSLR on the two Giants (brand Nik & the brand Can) in the Field. It is getting outdated.
The GH2 does away completely with the mechanical mirror, the large and heavy penta-prisms and finally the complicated mechanical shutter. It will have a global shutter from now on.
Because of these changes, the DSLR is now about to be burried with the dead!
The GH2's video is now on 1920x1080p and the 'roller shutter' effect problem is now gone too!
This is good news. With such great sensors in smaller bodies, we now go get some large lenses!

We will wait for more good news then....

Birds of the Wetlands

Birded two days ago at the Dengkil wetlands and checked about a dozen birds off our list.

Posted a new HD clip yesterday. View it Here.

My Birding Buddy here happily holding his new Swarovski SwaroVision EL. He saw the unseen!

A very shy Dollarbird. How I wish I can just move that branch before he got away!
