Played with Canon PNS film camera before getting into photography.
Went to hk and taiwan when i was 16 and 17years old respectively.
The camera is reallly too PNS...no zoom, no nothing, only point and shoot and flash. Pics came out........not very nice.
A friend of mine is in photography and showed nice taiwan tour pics...so I wished for nice pics when i went oversea too. But then still feel digital camera is for rich guys.
17years old - after coming back from taiwan...more more wishing for a better camera. so bought a cheapo CMOS camera from taiwan...costing $200SGD [still a lot for me~~] have fun shotting.......but the night shots sucks!
18years old - so 2months later, bought a 2nd hand Olympus mju II wide 80, a PNS but can take good pics, and good night shots. Even so excited that i finished a roll of 36 pics at esplanade area........imagine how many merlion shots i got!
then in nov / dec holiday, took up two jobs...... earning $399 / week, so sold both the CMOS camera and the olympus Mju II away and bought a Canon A40! yes!!
Went to hk in december, go around taking pics with my hk friend who is using 707. Shooting quite a lot in sg also.
18years - after using A40 for about half year...wanted more control over aperture...and wanted bigger aperture....upgraded to a 2nd hand G2 [wanted a 717 at that time but no $$]
19years old - bring to taiwan again, took some shots in mountain.....and enjoyed photography still! Happy at G2 and dun think i will upgrade...at most change camera for warranty..hahaha...
looking for a external flash.......and i shall visit botanic garden again! haha.
Loved : landscape [nightshot most!] and macro shots!
Now: always become cameraman when there is a friend / family gathering!
[good but missed out some fun~~]
