    if a Primary 3 kid do ask a uni grad a science question about quantum theory, how the uni grad gonne explain to him??

    some time if some one ask me a question, which I think it is too "chime" for him to understand at that moment, I will get a label as "selfish" "know how but do want to share".

    I think sling on your neck, together with your camera. Like that, the center of gravity is at its most centralised. Lagi best.

    Another one is "when to buy my 40D, 400D, 450D, D80, D200, D300..."

    I'm always in CS, but have not been posting.
    One of the reason why I'm not actively posting is that I'm afraid of asking the 'wrong' questions, then the chain effect happens...
    I always want to post this question:

    "Does a bigger camera produces better pictures?"

    sorry, I don't know, just finish reading owner manual from page 1 to page 125, nothing mention about watts, only said at full power, zoom setting at 35mm, you get GN of 38/125 m/ft at ISO 100.

    "you see, son.. it has to do with the birds.. and the bees..

    when they interact, quantum physics comes into play."

    I wear it like a sweatband. Over the forehead, over both ears and down my back. Strengthens the neck muscles, but not as quick to access...

    when travelling for long periods, i use a pulley system to strap it around my ankle

    still very fast access

    not as good as the ear, but a few jerks and it's up in front of my face

    trains the calf muscles too.. though if i have a telephoto lens on it it does hinder movement a little

    but it's still good overall

    tu di

    very easy

    you see your fridge? open up the top compartment, take out ice cube
    and put it in front of lens

    everyone knows that we have been cheated by those evil companies for damn long
    ice is the way to go, not glass

    but they are too lazy to device a proper cooling system for all their lenses
