Nikon F6 – a decade long review.

F6sideviewBIG

I know this is an odd camera to be reviewing about since it is an old camera but not old enough that it isn’t still being made by Nikon.

Although word has it that it will be discontinued by the end of 2018.

I won’t be discussing about the image quality since that has more to do with the skill, film and lenses. All the body does is make taking photos possible.

Manfrotto MT190X3 with 410 Junior gear head – a simple review.

With the death of my previous tripod it had indeed served me well (when used with 35mm SLRs) but it was certainly showing its age especially when handling gear heavier than an average SLR/DSLR.

The ball head was not able to support anything heavy for long or it couldn’t with accuracy as the ball head tend to creep especially at odd angles.

Bangkok International Motorshow (BIM) 2018

Yes I know I am way overdue for an article on my blog, but things haven’t been going as smoothly as I had hoped this year. I am now focus predominantly on Twitter so expect a lot less updates here.

Still that doesn’t mean I don’t have anything to post today, here are the photos from my recent trip to Bangkok back in March/April (end of the March to be exact).

Ever since Super GT left Malaysia for greener pastures (And less religious nutcases), my friends and I have instead ventured fourth from Sepang to Bangkok for our annual photographer meeting instead.

I have to say going to BIM is a lot more fun since the event is always held at IMPACT – an air-con stadium with smoking hot babes (Yes I know most of you are going to say they are all trannys and not real women since this is Bangkok).

So here are the photos, enjoy!

Why did I give up on digital cameras?

First of all, THIS ISN’T A DIGITAL VS FILM ARTICLE ! I HATE THOSE!

I don’t intend to add onto an already oversized pile of toxic articles of meta physics articles of one being better than the other crapfest!

This is more of a article to document my reason selling off my digital camera. It wasn’t because of some great revelation or epiphany. Nor was it due to a discovery of something greater.

Adeptus Mechanicus

Many have asked since I don’t subscribed to any religion, “What would I choose ?”

For the sake of the argument, being such a fan of Warhammer 40K, if I really had to choose one it would be the Adeptus Mechanicus  @ Cult Mechanicus

Why? Because they are into the worship of the science and technology. A collection of  scientists, engineers and technicians bound together for the greater understanding and worship of technology.

Look at their sale pitch!

“As part of this faith, the Adeptus Mechanicus believes knowledge is the true manifestation of divinity in the universe, and all creatures and artefacts that embody knowledge are holy because of it.”

Tell me this doesn’t appeal to all nerds alike! I dare you!

Sure they also worship an entity called the “Omnisiah” (maybe the c’tan void dragon)  as the embodiment and bestower of all knowledge and technology in the universe. In how many so-called “religions” that actually considering the understanding the universe AND science along with technology as their creed? Most of the other ones are all about just praying and then feeding it’s underage children to be sexually molested by their priest (I’m looking at you Catholic church!). Or consider it normal for a 50 year old to marry a 9 year old girl? Worse, believing some alien race flew in jumbo jets through space to come to Earth?

Notice what I’m saying? If I am going to pick some fairy tell to believe in, this would be the one. It makes sense because it is actually a logical belief! A religion to understand technology! Of course it isn’t perfect, the Omnisiah part and etc but if I had to chose which crazy sky god believing religion, it would be this one!

Working for exposure.

Call it – working for free – the holy grail of companies looking for a photographer meaning every company in this world.

Point explained by WTD.

I did an article about this article long ago, and the problem has gotten much worse since. A recent article on Petapixel here highlighted the practice is more or less being accepted as standard practice.

Check out the comments on all the links I posted, they are hilarious.
