    Default Nepal: Photokhichne expedition 2003 team report

    Woooo guys, I am writing on behalf of our 7-person team for the Nepal trip. We are back now! Truely excellent trip, completely enjoyed ourselves. I believe we have many things to talk about, and... of course many pictures to show.

    btw, my highly abused D60 failed on the road of Nepal. In fact my two digital cameras both failed during this trip. What the... well, end up bringing back a lot of slides/negative, hopefully got some interesting pictures.

    Later.

    hello ...

    was a great trip ...
    esp with the interesting sights we've managed to capture..

    unfortunate that tom's camera seized during the trip ... but i am sure
    he is due for an equipment upgrade anyway :P

    Hmmm strange thing is that i can't seem to remember where i put my mobile
    phone in my luggage... can't seem to find it anywhere ...

    nuts.. so i guess ibetter report loss tomorrow n just get a replacement sim card using the same number


    Cheers n good nightie

    Sorry to hear that. Looks like all of us are buying something or getting upgrades after the trip. Will be meeting Tom this afternoon to check out scanner.

    Namaste.

    Sent my d60 for service. Dunno what happened, cannot start up. I lost hundreds of picture opportunities but fortunately film still let me keep some key frames. Now, I am going to be a dual format guy. Going to get an Epson perfection 3200 scanner and shoot more wide/fisheye type of pix.

    suggestion: why not hold a slide exhibition at Singapore History Museum or something? Say.. in November?! Hehehehe... sounds equally exciting for those of us who didn't join you guys for the trip...

    by the way, how did you cope with looking after your equipment in the geography of nepal?

    Ouch. Your heart must have skipped a couple of beats when you realised that the D60 konked out! I know I would have...
    Just plain bad luck I guess. My D30 came away with no problems although I did not even specifically take good care of it
    Anyway, may be a blessing in disguise cos we get to see slides huh...

    ..NuTs..

    With film, shooting style is a lot different. In a word, much more selective. I dunno this is good or bad. Most of my slide/negative films recorded candid portraits, which is what I most enjoyed. Not many funny funny angles. A bit more conservative. Also in a sense "one shot one kill". Actually I like shooting digital, got more coverage; but slides are richer in colors. Maybe in my future shoot, just bring two formats, then I can get the best of both?
