When Is My Turn to Own a DSLR Camera?

Lunch time just now, I went to Sungei Wang Plaza with my colleague Chamb using "No.11 bus". Not too far away actually, from our office to Sungei Wang, it only needs slightly more than 10 minutes of walking distance.

Initially the main purpose for this lunch trip is to take a walk, see leng loi around and then make some survey on DSLR camera where Chamb planned to buy. However, didn't see much leng loi along the way to Sg wang, but we stopped at one of the camera shop at BB Plaza to have a look at the digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera.

We spent about 45 minutes inside the shop where Chamb were considering on 2 camera models - Canon EOS 1000D or Nikon D60. Both DSLR cameras are similar in term of specification and suitable for entry level of DSLR users.

At the end of the day, Chamb finally made the decision to go for Canon EOS 1000D which cost at RM1.9k! I am not sure which one is better actually, but definitely Canon one is lighter and is made in Japan whereas Nikon one made in Thailand.

Among some of the featured specification of this camera are:
  • 10.1 Mega pixels
  • Up to 3 frames per second
  • 7-point wide-area auto focus (AF)
  • Self-cleaning image sensor
  • 2.5" LCD with Live View mode
  • DIGIC III processor
  • SD/SDHC card slot
  • Picture Styles processing
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Compatible with EF/EF-S lenses and EX Speedlites

I felt lucky because I had the chance to play around with the camera. Honestly, this is my first time touching a digital SLR camera! The feeling was so good. Not like the compact camera, you need to look through the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen to shot the picture. Then you need to operate and adjust the lens manually to focus or zoom in and out That make you look like a professional photographer.

There is no doubt about the quality of the photo taken using the digital SLR camera. Clear and sharp! Look at the photo below. It was the first photo I took using the Canon EOS 1000D DSLR camera!

Now I am wondering... when is my turn to own a DSLR camera? Perhaps wait till I win lottery? ;p
