    Default make my day

    just now at 1938hrs, i was at tanjung rhu road trying to took picture of a moon. while im trying to took it, i saw a man holding a canon dslr and i just smile at him.

    he came to me and asked me what am i trying to take? so my replied to him was that im trying to take a picture of a moon. and the best is he asked me why i did not used a flash? so i asked him back, what kind of a flash can shoot the moon? he replied me "canon 580 exii"

    he even said that my crop body (500d) is useless unlike his (5dm2). after which i told him that i only have canon 430 exii and happly with my 500d as it was just a hobby for me.

    he said to me at least a good photographer must have a flash canon 580 exii be it a hobby or a pro. he offer me to buy his flash at price of $650/- and claim to be the cheapest in town.

    i told him its ok as i really dont need one now but just asked him why he wanted to sell since he said that every photographer need one? he replied "i have 10 set of canon 580 exii"

    i just smile and said thanks for the offer and walked off..

    I wonder what he does with his 10 sets of Canon 580 EXII, he doesn't sound like the Joe McNally type.

    that guy is one of the legendary users of the infinite bounce flash technique.

    he is the master of getting light to bounce to infinity and stay there one. dun pray pray.

    all he needs is luck that below the atmosphere, there'll be huge albatrosses to use their wings to reflect the light towards the moon...

    and as it gets higher, the satellites will arrange themselves so that they'll also help to reflect the light.

    and...

    that's where the moon gets its light from.. a man with a 5DmkII and 10x 580exii

    looks like a con man, like the ah beng and ah seng goes around with a van selling hi-fi system. some people got cheated, when asked them "why so cheap", they will reply "clearing stock".

    btw, you never snap a picture of him ? can post it here mah.
