Count me in too!
I'm Nikon as well, but no "racism" against Canon :lol:

Unfortunately I work in practice all the time, I'm only free staurdays (pm) and sundays.

How about sunday 14, I heard that it is closure day for the Lantern Festival, so I thought it would be nice to hang loose in Chinatown

Anyone interested pls post here or email me at kisono_@libero.it (not sure if I can PM for the time being, will check) or skype me at gif_dbo

Looking forward to meet photo buddies!

nikon ok?

Postby poolgirl » Thu, 11 Sep 2008 8:03 pm

i checked the website, the rules don't say anything about nikon not being allowed. photos must be taken with a digital camera though, and no image editing is allowed.

the date is oct 18 (that would be a saturday) and entry fee is $10. however, looks like it's an individual and not a group event!

Sorry for not posting, been buzy with work, planning for vacation & back from vacation - exhausted.

I'm pretty much an outdoor photography person main - scenic & macro.

Well, anyone interested to organise an event this weekend? I'm still exhausted from all the above.

Let me know (need my energy booster before I can organise something).

A nice thread with a difference. All the best for the community to develop.

My old SLR camera became faulty and never got into photo shooting after that.. and hope the community makes me buy a DSLR soon.

All the very best!!..

does anyone know whether DSLRs come with B setting like in SLRs?

Shankar - usually, but it's not termed that anymore - it's usually the lowest shutter speed. You WILL need to check the manufacturers, though - not all are created equal!

HTH, Mr. P

Thanks for the info alpha. The problem with lowest shutter speed is that it is still timed. Whereas with B setting we can have the shutter open as long as we want. Let me try browsing.

Shankar - high-end Nikon's allow you to set the shutter speed you desire :)

I'm not sure about the Canon EOS series - as you said, check the websites.

Cheers, Mr. P

Yup, Canon EOS allows shutter speed changing, it's a tricky business though.
