FAQ: Camera

Friday, June 22, 2012

Few people has been asking me on what camera do i use, especially on this blog. and some asked me in Facebook. To tell you the truth though, my sharing might not benefits you at all, because i'm a complete noob on which gear is the best yadaa yadaa or any camera-related-things.

But i thought I'll just share what i use since you guys have been asking a lot.
So, my favourite camera was (however still is) the Casio Exilim EX-Z300. Just a basic compact digital camera. It took awesome images but finally comes to its end last year where i dropped it into seawater. Memang padan muka. Ever since then, my BB's camera has been my companion. BB Camera memang low quality, plus I punya 2mp pixel, with no autofocus, no flash and what not, but its still my excellent savior indeed. 

Images by Casio Compact Camera:
Pulau Kapas's sunset 2009 (top) - Teluk Cempedak at night 2011 (bottom)

Yes, even normal compact boleh buat bokeh.

Moving on, my third favourite is my dslr. Ok so this is what u guys have been asking about. I use the simplest entry level Dslr by Canon. its the EOS 1100D (in Japan they call it Rebel T3). If you saw Canon Ads with Yuna on it, yes, mine is exactly what Yuna use.

Sample from my dslr:


Fourth, Yashica Vintage Slr. Sebelum ni i've been wanting one solely because of its 'vintage' value and nothing else. HAHA. It belongs to my dan which he bought in around 1980s and he gave it to me recently. It function exactly like Dslr, meaning ada lens semua cuma dia tak digital. Meaning without the digital screen. review here.

So, i rank them this way:

#1: Casio Exilim
#2: BB Camera
#3: Canon Dslr
#4: Yashica Slr

If we're talking about quality gambar, ofcourse dslr ranking 1st. tipu lah kalau kualiti gambar dekat BB lagi elok dari dslr. But if nak rank ikut comfortability, dslr number last, sebab berat. Casio tetap pertama. Ringan, nak bawak kemana-mana pun boleh.

I am still learning and frankly saying I have no talent at all and I bukan photographer. Tapi seriously, if you're aiming for some top shot high quality photos, save up and get a dslr. Sebelum beredar, biar saya hadiahkan serangkap peribahasa inggeris kegemaran kami, yang berbunyi,

"Owning a Dslr does not makes you a photographer."

Ada kaitan tak? ok bai!

phone's camera always the best!! sebab senang nak dibawa sepanjang masa dan memang tak akan pernah tinggal. Kalau dslr tu kadang-kadang nak rajin bawak, kadang-kadang malas. kan :)

Camera is just a tool. It's the man behind the lens that makes great pics, yes?
