People always tell me that I have a lot of cameras but I beg to differ. How can one simply has “too many” cameras? There is no “too many” for cameras.
And to be very honest, the cameras I have is nothing compared to the real photography enthusiasts. You guys should look at their dry boxes!
My List of Lovers
Canon 450 with kit lens (18-55mm)
My first baby that I shrimp and saved to get it! It has accompanied me throughout my poly days till now. That means we are going to celebrate our 5th anniversary this year! Okay, I am just kidding. I am not that psychotic (yet). Hahaha. But anyway, I have always been a Canon lover because of its beautiful results on portraits. I always hear a lot about how Nikon is great in landscape photography while Canon is awesome in portrait photography but nonetheless, even if you have a great camera and you know nuts about photography, your photos would NEVER turn out great.
Easy to use interface, sturdy, heavy and of course, a little outdated as compared to the lastest DSLR models like 650D that are similar to 450D. It gets really grainy on high ISO (eg. 1600, which is nothing compared to the models which have up to 3600). Partly also because I am using a kit lens which aperture is limited. Else, if I am using a 50mm (image below) lens, the image would turn out clearer.
I love this lens to the core even though it is a pain in the neck when space is limited. It is a fixed lens that is good for close ups, sometimes I use it for food photography too. Brilliant depth of field that makes the whole photo more sophisticated. Here’s an example of what a 50mm can do:
See what I mean by it? :D Dears look even prettier here. Hahahahaha.
Canon Powershot S95
Won this baby from a blog contest (you can read the entry here -> http://lovelivfe.com/2011/02/28/home-is/). I didn’t expect the win especially when the other entries were so good too, so a BIG THANK YOU to NE5 and the organizers again! Anyway, this Powershot works really well in low-light conditions! Even better than my DSLR, I would say. Even though the clarity of the photo remains debatable, the saturation & contrast that the photos turn out to be? SIMPLY GORGEOUS. Here’s a collage of the first use of this camera:
Lomography Diana Mini (You can see my unboxing video here)
My Love in The Air version had something wrong with the flash function so I had to make an exchange and since the design is already OOS, the only appealing choice is Petite Noir.
Great accessory and absolutely a conversation starter with strangers. Been there, done that. ;)
The photos turns out to be really dreamy and fun. My little niece (what do you call the child of a cousin?) had so much fun snapping around during the last family gathering.
Love the blue scale film but I can’t remember which brand it is. :(
I have always wanted to get a Polaroid but the original brand is too expensive and “was” out of manufacturing line so like most people, I make do with the credit card size instant film with Fujifilm Instax 25s. :P
I do have two more toys – Holga 110 and a twin star lomo camera which were given to me as presents and I love them but since I have no photos (the film failed to be developed for Holga 110 while I haven’t finished the roll on the twin star) to show you. Maybe next time!
Hope everyone likes this post as much as I do, because cameras just makes me happy! HEEHEE.
