and it suddenly hit me one day, that i do indeed wanted to have this camera (probably brought about from too much stress – another story in itself). i started calculating and thinking on how i can have one. For one thing, i already have a point and shoot and a dslr, but it has already made a good grip of my yearning for better cam shoots… then i started researching…. it somehow got good reviews and was even compared to the top of the line camera (way too expensive for my amateurish purpose) of the same company with results that are somewhat similar – photo wise.
the next hurdle though was to know where i can get it locally… found the shop but they only have its earlier version (they were both released, i think, in the same year 2008 – marketing ploy? not so – as this camera can unload a lot of ‘power’ shots).
anyway, thanks to my wife – michelle – who grabbed one for me while on a lay over in singapore.
i went around the house and did test shots… here they are…
