Cerita panjang lebar on how I managed to get this new item has been told in my previous shopping haul entry. And now, I would like to menambah panjangkan lagi crita pasal this new gadget.
Pendek kata, Oh So Syiok!
I wanted a simple point and shoot camera
and it has to be pink , but were given this out-of-my-league type of camera without guidance from Enchek Kedek because he himself have not tried the camera yet. So I ended up with reading the manual book during my 2 + 1 hour flight to Langkawi. Haha. The internet at the hotel we stayed in Langkawi was bad, so I didnt really have the chance to go look on the net for more info on the camera. I didnt use the camera on my 1st and 2nd day there, and only took it out after I have the fear of Enchek Kedek asking me why I didnt use that camera.
After series of randomly pushing the buttons, gone through the menus, try & error and finally, Dapat jugak ambil gambar cantek.
Gambar-gambar bunga ini di ambil dengan Auto mode. Segala-galanya auto. So this camera actually amat senang untuk di pakai, set auto pun, masih boleh dapat gambar yang seakan-akan pro. Dengan bokeh lagi. Dan bokeh nya sangat cantik.
Four Point by Sheraton, Langkawi. Gambar di sekitar lobby. Padahal 2 keping ja.
I used advanced filter -> ‘retro camera’ to take this picture. Saya tengok cantek. Enchek Kedek cakap, ada ghosting. Terus saya blur, ada peng-hantu-an? Ghosting ni seakan-akan cahaya putih yg keluar dari hujung2 subject tu. Dont use photography language to me, or else, i’ll use my dunia jahitan languange. Hehe.
This picture were taken using advanced filter -> ‘toy camera’. I was dissapointed at first that I didnt manage to get sharp images during the island hopping activity. After our first stop, inside the bumpy boat ride, I discovered (ayat harus lebih) this advanced filter application and used ‘toy camera’ because of its rich colour.
During one of our stop i.e eagle watching where a pakcik threw foods on the surface of the water, and the eagles came to get it. Betapa saya mahu menggambar helang-helang tu, but I cant zoom enough. Sampai hotel I told Enchek Kedek that I cant find the zoom features (which on normal camera, amat mudah di dapati) and told him how dissapointed I was.
Lepas tu Enchek Kedek cakap, “Camera ni memang tiada zoom features”. Even if ada zoom pun, the quality of the picture wont be good, unless u pakai lense mcm meriam buluh tu,
As what Enchek Kedek’s cousin just told me, “kalau mau zoom, zoom manually by feet” i.e use your feet to come closer to the object. Hehe. So basically, this camera sesuai untuk travelling, street photography.. Gambar yang ala-ala instagram gitewww. For my bags pun sesuai. Jadi, x lama lagi, gambar-gambar MMHB upgraded from ipad/iphone camera quality to x100s punya quality.
Another features that this camera has, and one of my favourite is..
Grayscale and only show the true colour of your choice. Actually ada beberapa colour ja lah. Merah, orange, hijau, biru..
Last but not least, haruslah ada gambar budak ni.
For comparison purpose, harga paling menawan hati Fujifilm x100s di Malaysia as of June 2013, is RM3500 with 8Gb SD card and one cool leather bag. Anything expensive than that, dont buy :p. And if you found anything that is lower than that price, check betul-betul because theres another same model, but without the S, i.e x100.
The leather bag/casing.
PS : Dear professional photographer, you might find the words that I used in this entry is funny and so amature, well, i am not a photographer and my husband made me to choose this camera!!! haha.. But overall, I am satisfied with it. So thumbs up!
