Articulated Viewfinder (In-Use)

The advantage of having an articulated viewfinder screen in 600D is evident in the shot below. This is one fine feature that made 600D stood up from its competitor and its predecessor, together with the 18 MP sensor and 3.7 fps continuous shooting.

Having a Day Out at Villagio Mall

This is my entry to the Week 21 of the Techie She Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways. This week’s prize is $10 Paypal credits from Shydub of Impulsive Shopper.

Our son enjoyed watching the gondola passing by inside the Villagio Mall while waiting for his mom. While I am also trying to catch a souvenir using Canon 600D.

Below is a portrait mode without a flash.

Here’s his mom taking a pose after her shopping and getting what she like from MNG.

Trying Out Canon 600D

Earlier last month we finally got the chance to go to the Aqua Park and I think it was just the right time then before the winter season comes. Right now, the weather at night and early morning will give you a little chill if you stay outdoors for some time. And next Saturday we will be going back at the Aqua Park and I was thinking that it would be the best time to try shooting landscape and possibly get a panoramic view of the park itself using the new 600D. But then I remembered that cameras are so unfortunately NOT allowed inside.

Now you might be wondering how I got the photo in my post on secondary drowning at my medical/health blog. We actually sneaked a small PNS cam and I also saw a bunch who are bringing as well, though most are using their mobile phones to take their souvenir snapshot. And even as much as I wanted to bring my new toy while at the same time practicing how to take a fairly decent picture, I don’t want to create trouble in this annual event hosted by our company.

Many would say that DSLR is the great step if you would want to expand you creative horizons in photography and get better pictures that you have control of the depth-of-field.

Taking a Leap Away from Quick Snapshot

This is my entry to the Techie She Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week 19. This week’s prize is $10 paypal credits from Ruby of Postcard Enthusiast.

It’s been three days that I’ve been very busy trying to familiarize with my new toy despite the limited time. I’m sure you know what it is. I was able to upgrade into the world of dSLR and there’s no turning back anymore from PNS. Although my PowerShot S400 is still doing great job and it only needs a battery replacement yet it is still good to go. And the photo below shows how good this type of PNS despite the limited specs it has. Possibly a perfect picture for a postcard.

Looks familiar to you? This was taken in the Bee Farm in Bohol at their small refreshment area at the back near the sea side. This was during our escapade with my wife and a close friend of mine. There are times that the type of camera you have will matter and sometimes don’t. Taking a great snapshot is only in your eyes but of course you also need to accept the limitation of what you have. It is impossible to take shots of wild birds or animals without disturbing them. You must keep your distance to take your desired snapshot.

And to borrow a line from David D. Busch, author of Digital SLR Cameras and Photography for Dummies, “digital SLRs do more than change how you take pictures. They change how you make pictures, as well.”

But then don’t expect something here about tutorial since I am not an expert in that matter even if I do learn this blog won’t go nearer that way. Although I will share my experience when I am able to deeply familiarize with the toys for the big boys.
