Hmm. My macbook seems fine. Will do a scan on Windows on monday when i reach office.. It seems it's a window virus
Canon 7D • 17-40mm ƒ4 • 70-200mm ƒ4
its a .exe file... mac cant run .exe file.
just wondering did you guys pay the registration fees $10 as stated in the website?
All in all, I enjoyed the photomarathon. $10 is cheap consider the freebies we have in rtn. The sharing on travel photography is pretty good, at least it gives some of us an idea of how things are planned and who we may contact if we want to go for such trip.
Some get to enjoy free OSIM massage, some get free EOS servicng, many get free photo print. Not bad lah....
Didn't kena anything on my cf card btw.
I also kena the virus! LOL!
I guess I was damn lucky to read this forum before actually plugging back my SD card into my computer (THANK GOD FOR M$'S REALIZATION OF THEIR AUTOPLAY STUPIDITY!).
Here's my take on the competition:
Personally speaking, I sucked. Big time. I should've not spent the $10 going into the competition, knowing that others are having it better than me. I should've spent more time improving my shots and master my Canon EOS 450D. I dread the moment when I realized that I am just another guy/girl with camera. My shots aren't great. My composition needs to be worked on further; I still had not grasped my camera's intimate settings better, and my submission of photos could've been better substituted with other pictures that, in my opinion, should've been submitted instead!
('Twas my first Canon Photomarathon competition for me, and I have no idea if this will be my last competition – God willing, I hope to participate again next year.)
Anyway, I cemented my belief in myself that I can approach to people better (+1 for a relative shut-in), I was able to appreciate the "filtered" effects on my camera (well, I only played with my "sepia"/monochrome shots today), and – for a starter – "snooped" myself into a certain Idol session somewhere in Singapore.
Actually, it was kinda fun taking this competition. Rain may dampen what we may originally conceive (whenever the theme was mentioned, I just conceptualize the image that I wanted to take – which is bad if I only practised taking candid shots), but improvise.
Anyway, I've taken a look at the finalists from the first 2 themes; I have to admit that those pictures are really fantastic to look at. Which reminds me.............
this is what is causing the the virus to spread.
If the card is infected and plugged into the com with no AUTORUN feature, the virus will stay dormant on the infected media.
So what is suggested is...
- Disable the AUTORUN feature.
- In future, run a scan on any media card after you plug in.
This should pretty much safeguard urself.

I did not realize there is virus as my computer did not detect anything... guess i should format the CF. Also, the guy who help me upload the second theme corrupt my work. Cannot view on my camera, but luckily still be able to view on my computer
They should have inform them how to properly eject the card.

mine's free of virus i feel that the judging was really horrible as some of the photos on the wall were so much better than the winning ones to me.
Take for example the second prize winner of the theme "togetherness" in the open category. when it was flashed on the projector screen , me and my girlfriend were so confused because we couldn't even tell what the photo was. then i heard people nearby laughing and saying " wah like that also can win ah?"
To me , probably only 3 or 4 out of the 18 winning photos were good.
The camera cleaning was really good and thorough though they managed to clear a huge speck of dust that's been in my viewfinder for ages.
totally agree. emcee is omg!
I feel its a matter of taste, some people like it some people don't. I personally find him alright...
