    Default Serious Car Accident.. Using K7 - ISO800 and ISO1600

    Was on my way back home when i came across this accident.. decided to make a quick detour and stop by the roadside to take these..

    ISO800 f4.0 Exposure: 1/8 sec


    ISO1600 f4.5 Exposure: 1/10 sec


    I think K7 hi-iso are still very usable... photo are crop with some PP noise reduction..

    i thought it should be better than this, at least i think the k20d images i have taken in similar conditions at iso800 can look better

    iso1600 not usable on k20d anyways, not unless even lighting and exposed well all around.

    oh, it was shot through windscreen + solar film at f/4??

    then no wonder

    it won't be represensatitve of k7 image quality at all, you are shooting at at least 1-2 stops more than what you usually would use without all that non-optical glass + film..

    which would also be possibly not so clean, degrading image further + adding softness + color shift.... the list goes on

    Because taxi drivers tend to over rate their own driving skills!

    Your shots are hopeless... no car numbers... how to buy 4D for this weekend = no chance for windfall = no hope to buy K-7

    Not so long ago, at the junction of Bt Batok and Brickland Rd, there was an accident involving a taxi and a mini lorry. Before that I saw one with a taxi and a motorcycle somewhere else nearby, and a taxi and a few other cars on the expressway. Once, I had 2 different taxis cut me off on a single day, once to work and again coming back!

    Well you get the picture...

    aiyah no car numbers, there are always other ways to get numbers from the scene mah... example 'Taxi' = 8294, 'blue car' = 2583.

    such talk only means most people here do not understand how tough and tiring it is to drive a taxi for 10-12 hours whole day long dealing with many other inconsiderate non-taxi drivers on the road... being humans surely the taxi drivers can make mistakes after having to face such challenges the whole day...

    unless you do a proper research study really let's be careful in making inferences about taxi drivers based on bias thinking... just like when the writer above assumed that female drivers are worse drivers

    how u noe we dun understand...yeah its not a easy job... but is there a "easy" job out there ?? i would like to have one... job sucks do we bring our bad experience back home then... surely no...

    so no excuse whether its tough or not... driving is a responsibility for all irregardless...
