New to Singapore

Postby RJosephWilson » Tue, 19 Oct 2010 11:55 am

I just arrived in Singapore a couple of weeks ago. I like to get out and explore to take pictures, but hate doing it alone.

dslr

Postby DJ-F » Mon, 22 Nov 2010 4:43 pm

I use a Nikon D90 which I 100% love. You can push up the iso to 2500 and still not see the grain on photos unless you blow them upto A3 size. It came with an 18-105 lens, but I bought a Nikon 50mm F1:4 lens .... it is a great combination.

Nikon are coming out with a new model soon, the D7000, but it is expensive. If I had the money I would buy one for sure. use it for my 50mm lens, and mount the zoom lens back on the D90

This is the best web site i have ever found for honest reviews ... enjoy:

Second the Nikon recommendations. Nikon D700's here and far too much invested in Nikkor lenses!

Bear in mind the difference between FX and DX before making your investments. See http://mansurovs.com/nikon-dx-vs-fx as a start, then wander over to the Nikon site.

Is the photo club here still active, Nak?

Cheers, mr. P

Yes, if it means we had another 'outing' last 30 Oct. Perhaps another one before the month ends?

Nak - We're out of country on an assignments/missions (as bloody usual!) throughout DEC/JAN. Would be good to catch up finally though.
