At last…

Canon 500D

Do you remember, I was seeking for a camera and I couldn’t decide which type to buy? Then, I didn’t know which model suits me. Click here to read the earlier post.

Last week, Keith told me that there was a Camera Fair at Prangin Mall which end on 31st January 2010. Since my car still in the workshop for major repair, I thought it was a great idea. Also, I’ve to cancel attending my colleague son’s birthday party (Azali) in mainland.

So, we went there and it was crowded.

Many booth were there including Canon, Nikon, Sony and many more (I only list the well-known ones). Keith and I straight went to the Canon booth instead of other booth as I prefer Canon than any other brand :)

Since we weren’t seeking for compact, we took a look for DSLR. I looked at 1000D from far only as many people were holding it, cheapest though. Should be very affordable for everybody. Since I’ve asked around everywhere, Facebook, blog and peoples around me, the model that we compared were 450D and 500D (seriously, thanks to all of you!). The sales girl was very helpful. Congrats to Nam Loong, for manage to get great peoples handling their booth and get me hooked!

Then, after got some info from the girl and trying the camera of course, we went down and walked around Komtar and Prangin Mall to all the camera shops, that exist around that area. Many shops were closed maybe because it was Sunday but we managed to ask all shops that were open, and they couldn’t give me the great deal like I could get from the camera fair.

They gave me RM2,930.00 with tripod, basic lens 18-55mm, bag, free 8G memory and plus RM1.00 I got special package for 4 items. The 4 items are:

  1. Photo session with professionals. They gave us 2 vacation; one is international and another one is domestic. You can choose Bali or Phuket for international and Genting, Port Dickson and Pahang for domestic. There is a rule and condition that I don’t like it much, so this one is still under consideration.
  2. Free calendar with your best 12 photos taken by you, of course.
  3. Free 1 day workshop, which they will teach you basic.
  4. 2-year warranty which is 1-year from Canon and 1-year from Nam Loong.

It sounds good isn’t it? To those who are interested, sorry. Last date was 31st January 2010.

I don’t have much time at the moment, preparation for badminton tournament on 20th February 2010 inter LHDNM, Penang. Assignments and quiz. Cameron Highlands from 6th to 8th February.

So, I will update my blog with my own pictures start from today :) Unless, it’s impossible for some circumstances. Still playing and learning with my 500D, with it’s function like P, AV, flower etc. Also, try to figure out IS, Shuttle speed, Aperture and so on :) Love it!

Note: To those who have knowledge about DSLR, your advise and help will be much appreciated :)
