    Sometime I posted a photo in CS and people asked me what camera and lens I used.

    Got a similar experience at the last outing..

    I aimed my camera at Koplady and sfoto100, but the camera just won't lock focus.. so I take my own sweet time hunting for contrast area to lock on..

    Didn't realized that they were already "posing" for the shot.. as it was quite dark and thru the VF can't see their facial expression at all..

    Then about 10sec later.. kena complained by koplady for making them stand like statue for 10sec......... alamak....

    in the end, had to MF.. but, as expected, pic is OOF.. can't even see their face in the VF.. how to focus.......

    you take off your clothes and stand there staring defiantly at the building?

    just kidding..

    i wasn't sure if it was right or wrong when i first saw it, then i realised that the flash wasn't THAT powerful.

    Actually, I always try to avoid MF.. bcoz.. not even sure if the diopter setting on the VF is right.. never calibrated it..

    if the numbers you see in VF are clear, then should be correct.

    I miss out some part in my manual saying the VF can't be used when shoot using live view.

    When I see through the VF all dark, I checked my lens cap, whether the lens is properly attached, and some thought of sending my cam to NSC crossed my mind.

    can't beat the all time classic.

    bring camera, bring heavy tripod, bring many filters, bring all the lenses.

    go to a far away place, 2 hours away... see the sunset, it is gorgeous.

    you whip out your camera, and then it refuses to take pictures.

    why? you left your sd card in your computer........ better luck next time. at least you can appreciate the sunset.

    I think the 4/3 community (led by microcosm) tried to flash/strobe/dunno-what-term a building at night before. It was a pretty big project IIRC with goodness knows how many flash triggers.

    Got to ask those who were present. I knew of the "project" from the sub-forum, but didn't go as I didn't have any flash to contribute.

    No. They were deliberately trying to light up a building using flashes.

    This one better.....

    Wake up early, bring out all your equipment and a few bottle of green tea, pay money to the organizer, fight for place with the photographers beside you, try to get attention of the xmm to look into your direction. Squeezing 9fps so to make your money more worthwell.

    After the shoot, try to get the xmm hp number and buy her lunch. Reach home spending whole night post processing the photo so to sent those photo to xmm.

    End of the day, the xmm happy spend the money with her bf and use your photo for her own marketing and never pick up your call.
