SELINGAN : ~ Aku Dan Dia ..... dan Dia ... ~

Some three years ago,
a friend introduced me to
From there, came my first post.

Shortly later, I got my first digital camera.

~ The Fujifilm Finepix F420.

" Smallest Fujifilm camera to incorporate Super CCD HR technology and 30 frames per second video "
( quoted from Digital Photography Review dot com )

Doppleganger 1 : Hey, how come yours is smaller huh ?

Doppleganger 2 : Petrol price went up 30 cent laa bro, so this one is fuel hike special edition, thats why.

First bought in February 2004, I have been using it since.

In fact, 90% of the photos featured here were shot by this F420.

( no surprise cuz the real reason for the F420 was ! )

With 3.1 M effective pixcels, the F420 print quality is rather low by today's standard.
Plus, the functions are somewhat limited and the image quality is quite frustrating.
To be fair, the size is small which is good ( good for snap and run tactic ! )
but the weight and thickness despite being just nice, still need more attention.
Yet, the handling is easy, the control panel is straight forward, sturdy built
and the LCD screen is comparatively large too.

Other than being an electron guzzler ( which must be its major downside ),
the F420 in general is a great companion for beginners and fun shooters.

Emmm..... considering all those facts,

maybe I should GET a new digicam ....

Sekian. Terima Kasih.


Psssssst :

My first camera was a cheap Canon, bought in 1999 for a hundred ringgit from the "notorious" Pertama Kompleks.
But after two years at my service, I had it sold to a friend for almost nothing.

It was Spring 2001 in Hachioji, Tokyo that I finally fell in love at first sight with what I called, a " real camera ",
a non-digital Pentax SLR MZ-30 which came along with a 1:4 - 5.6 35 - 80 mm lense.
I added up the arsenal later with a 1:4 - 5.8 100 - 300 mm telephoto lense, and a set Kenko 49 mm filters.
I still own it and as a proud owner, I had put on prints roughly 3000 shots by the MZ-30 alone.

When, the F420 appeared in my life, I put aside the MZ-30.
The size, weight, photo developing cost, double non-rechargeable CR2 batt. ( expensive too ! )
and above all, its incapability to go digital, were the reasons why.
Rarely used except for certain special occasions etc.

Still, the SLR is actually what I wish for a camera.
Having experience with the SLR before plus the need to move along with the change of time,
I think I would love to lay my hand on a spanking new DSLR in near future.

Looking down, deep into my pockets, only God knows when ..... * sigh *

* With my Pentax MZ-30 SLR. No, not that big thing in the background .....
