Decided to share some thoughts about modern photography with photos and videos taken solely using the smartphone that accompany us 24/7.

Cutest Sleeping Puppies I've Ever Seen and photographed If you love looking at something cute and like dog or puppies too, this photo post is for you. I took some photos of these puppies when I first saw them resting under a huge lorry. They making that cute little sound and I was worry about the lorry.

I've uploaded to Shutterstock and hopefully can get approval soon. Let me know if you are interested in getting them printed in large size to decorate your room or space at home.

Nikon D780 Review: Spending My Morning Self Portrait at #PuchongLalang

Image
Puchong Lalang - A padang with peace and serenity #PuchongLalang Captured with Nikon D780 Finding beautiful place around my neighborhood has always been fun. Little did I know that this empty land nearby my house can have its own beautiful landscape from time to time. Due to the schedule grass mowing, these lalang will only bloom once a while before the mower come again. One fine morning I brought along the Nikon D780 for a trip trying to take some self portrait and dvlogging using it at this beautiful Puchong Lalang. Since it is seasonal, please do note that this place don't always looks as good as the photos. You gonna wait for the right time and come before the rain took the beauty away.

How To Get The Best Memory Card For Your Camera & Save Money

How To Get The Best Memory Card For Your Camera and Save Money Hey guys, today I am sharing a quick tips on  how to get the right memory card for your camera and drone , and   how to save money by purchasing it online at the same time! As you can see from above, there are many different types of memory card for your camera. Different camera has different memory card requirement hence you really need to get the right memory card or else it will slow down your shooting experience. I was once using a slow card (slow writing and reading speed lower than Class 10) on my DSLR and the buffering time affect the amount of thing I can capture in that limited time. Hence I missed capturing some precious moment that time and I regret that... Get the Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SDHC Memory Card  (Silver color) If... To make it simple, if your camera device can't capture 4K video, it is enough to get a memory card with Class 10 (C10) written on it. You will able to see the number

Nikin D750 and Nikon Coolpix S6900 Selfie Camera launched in Malaysia Exactly one month ago, Nikon Malaysia has finally launched their latest smallest and lightest Full Frame DSLR Nikon D750 and selfie compact camera Nikon Coolpix S6900 . As a user of Nikon D800, I've always hoping that Nikon can come out with something lighter yet can deliver optimum quality photos and high performance. I've getting tired of carrying heavy DSLR and camera lenses around and glad that D750 is now in the market. The major difference between D750 and D800 is of course the lighter weight and tiltable screen. Lesser MegaPixels but more reason for me to shoot RAW photo with D750. Oh  yeah, D750 has built in WiFi too for easy posting to social channels.  Now let's check out what are the main features of Nikon D750 would ya? Continue read:
