    Creativity juices , thats the important thing.

    It's like "mojo" in Austin Powers.

    Hey thanks alot (to The Cheat and Hoky) (whose works I believe I haven't seen yet) for the encouragement.

    On your point about not concentrating on monetary value- you are right. Gives me a satisfaction to lend my eyes and show others what I see, if you get what I mean. I'm on my own mission to rediscover the magic in this city =) and show others what I've found too.

    But love doesn't feed one!!Money does!

    recently i bought a coolpix995 with a wide convertor and a tele convertor all in for $380.

    it has full manual control and Av and Tv( shutter priority, not television)

    its compact and give good pictures at 3megapix.

    pt is....if you are starting, it doesnt really make a difference.....get those that are slightly outdated and save yourself lots of money.....buy a DSLR when you are realy after that.

    oei? Pardon me, The Cheat, I thought IR filter will filter out certain colours or sthg. How come the pix are in black and white?

    haha! the title of this thread is slightly outdated. It's now:

    How a newbie agonizes over getting a DLSR or a PNS --> Should the PNS be Z2 or A80 --> Her first pix with the A80

    Now, i want to move on. As mentioned, am poor n struggling.I'm thinking of DSLR to save costs on film n developing (never mind the apparent irony).

    Should I continue to wait (and wait..)?
    Or should I knock on doors of potential sponsors.ha.
    Waittttttt.

    Yes... IR filter do filter out certain colour. However, IR filter are also extremely dark red in colour. Hence, if you cannot fool your digicam, via custom white balance, to think that red is white, then if you were to shoot the pictures in colour mode, with the IR filter on, all the pictures would be just red! Even though I love RED, I don't think it's appropriate in photography!

    Oh! I did lie about not having the digital camera bit... I'm the_cheat anyway, you know!

    Why do I wanna lie about having a digicam? Hmm... maybe cos I'm not hardworking enough to try out the metering stuff. Or maybe I'm just bored on my work, and think that life's a bit more fun by not telling the whole truth sometimes!

    Posting non-stop? Man! This is nothing as compared to the other threads I'm involved in...

    Anyway, do keep shooting nonetheless... Will be looking forward to more of your abstract artform. That's something I'd yet to master...

    Yar... and maybe after a few months or so, the newbie would be an old-bie... and then a pro in her artform...

    and err... maybe really turn into a quest for DSLR!

    The mysterious job is let say not a job... I'm a postgraduate in NUS dear. Do my own work mah! That's why got time to surf non-stop when I wanted to!

    If you got a second upp, you can get the same job I have too... Oh! Rosy picture aside, there's always the thorny issue of writing papers, sleepless nights in the lab, disappointments from failed experiments, etc. etc.
