Canon 50D is coming...

Canon going to launch it upgrade version of EOS 40D this coming Photokina. The new EOS 50D and having a few significant improvement over it's predecessor. Although not much different from the appearance, but changes a lot internally. The 15 Mega-pixels CMOS is saying to be new fabrication process and new design of photo diodes/microlenses. Hope this would enhance it noise control capability. I'm looking forward it's noise control performance and hopefully it can compete with the darkside. Lot's more attractive features added. Full preview can refer to here. Checked with my favorite camera shop in town and they said most likely will be on sale by October/November. There is still no news about the 3 years old full framer 5D replacement. But I believe just a matter of time. Sooner or later it will hit the market.

福娃娃

This is my wife collection of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games mascot, cute cute 福娃 from McD's happy meal. Took her a few weeks to made the full collection due to out of stock at most of the McD outlet in the island. She got her last mascot from QBM outlet after the staff check their stock again and again. Finally found the very last one.

One World, One Dream

One world one dream. 2008 29th Summer Olympic Games, the 16 days of events finally ended yesterday. Busy watching Astro supersport channel. Purposely subscribe to the sport package because of this Olympic games. I would said this is the most prestigious sport event in the world and I should not miss. Nice and grand opening ceremony. Same to closing ceremony. The worst part is Astro really suck during the closing ceremony, too much commercial break during the live broadcast. Just imagine if they put the commercial break in the middle of football game, what will you think. Something very interesting from my observation, the track athletic mostly seeing all Black runners. I guess this is their talent, can run day and night, like N!xau. The badminton and table tennis dominant by Asian. Besides games, seeing a lot of black and white bazooka from the side line. They took great pictures, can be seen from newspaper. Betul-betul pro.

I'm looking a way to post larger resolution photos in my blog. I guess it's working. I have limitation by using blogger/picasa posting feature. Couldn't get the size of the images I wanted when posting.

CCWC 2008 Penang

First time photograph in sporting event. Went to Club Crew World Championship 2008 dragon boat race at Teluk Bahang Dam on Saturday. This is once in 2 years event that held in various country in the world and this year it came to Penang. This is the 4 days event that started from 31st Jul until 3rd Aug. Total of 159 teams from 22 countries taking part. What a big event le. Weather is hot and hazy for that day. I was under the hot sun for at least 2 hours for shooting and I'm getting sun burn liao. My only sun blocking gear is my cap and it didn't help much. To get a closer shots, I need to climb down the steep cliff and it really dangerous le. One miss step, my camera and I will be end up swimming in the dam. Seeing a lot muscular men and women there. Surprise to see old uncle and auntie participating in the race as well, mai siao siao, their rowing are powerful le. Just to share some candid and action shots here.
