Made by Roo Roongrojna Sangwongprisarn from Thailand, this alien-like metal piece would surely raise the signal for the cops.

Butterfly with Invisible Wings

Salam.

At first look, it looks like a professional level image editing. After several pictures, its something God made and we can't.





Called the Glasswinged Butterfly, a member of the subfamily Danainae, tribe Ithomiini, subtribe Godyridina and they make home in Central America, where they are called "espejitos" (little mirrors) and they feed on nectar, love and good intentions.

It's beautiful and not for collectors items. God made it. Not us. Not the human.

Please Eat Your Pencil Shavings!

Salam.

Here you throw it. Why? Because you can't eat it. What if you can? Will you?


The Deli Garage made 500 of this edible pencil and they're already sold out! It was actually parmesan cheese with the 'lead' made from different flavours such as truffles, pesto and chilli. And the ruler? It's for you to check on how many calories you have to burn.

Appetising? Yes. Definitely.

Nokia C3-01.5 - Great specs for an old timer

Salam.

Yup. It has been leaked. The greatness of 1Ghz processor and 512MB of RAM in one lousy old-timer body. Guess that's why Nokia has been left behind in the smartphone race.


It has been rumoured before that such phones with capacitive touchscreen and QWERTY keypad will make its way to the market. This is not the rumoured one but its on the same line-up.

Let's hope this is the right path taken by Nokia before their ultimate downfall.

Which DSLR for you?

Salam.

You got the money. And you haven't got yourself a DSLR. Sure thing. DSLR will improve your photography skills in various aspects and also you will be able to identify which type of photography you would prefer. Either an all-rounder, macro, portrait and etc.

There are 4 levels of photography gears that are available in the market and each of it have different needs and requirements. To make it simple, the more money you have, the better your gears will be.


1. Entry / Consumer
The perfect gear for someone who just stepped into the world of professional photography. Its small, lightweight, have all the basic setting for you to learn and it cost less than others. Some of it provide guide mode with detail explanation of the settings. It has basic accessories for you to improve your skills.
Canon EOS 1000D, 1100D, 450D, 500D 550D, 600D.
Nikon D40x, D60, D3000, D3100.
Sony A200, A230, A290, A300, A330, A350, A380, A390.


2. Advanced amateur / Midrange
You've proven yourself to be a good photographer. And you want to climb a step further. But this time, each step costs money. Just kidding. Gears on this level are for those with experience using DSLR before and they want to move up the ladder. Most uses pentaprism rather than pentamirror for better view. It is also more rugged and better build than the entry gears.
Canon EOS 40D, 50D, 60D.
Nikon D5000, D5100.
Sony A450, A500, A550, A560, A580, A33, A55


3. Prosumer / High End
Yup. You got the money. Some would have a full-frame sensor while others are still stuck with APS-C or APS-H sensor. Gears on this level have better ISO, great settings, crisp image and able to burst-shot a lot better than others. At the moment, most professionals would prefer gears on this level as they have better weather seal and built. They also perform better in low-light condition. But beware. It will also punch a hole in your wallet.
Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 7D.
Nikon D70, D80, D90, D7000.
Sony A700.


4. Professional / Flagship
On this level, its either you have too much money or your camera is going to feed your family. Yes. This is the top. This is the cream of the crop. This is nearly god-like. The quality this camera produce is second to none. Even if a noob takes a picture with this camera, it will end up becoming an award winning picture in National Geographic's Hall of Fame! It is always full frame (most of it) and usually it came with a vertical grip. The sensor is amazing. Even holding this camera will give you the thrill. Each snap of this camera can give you ... I better not use the word here. Any how, this is not for normal photography. Unless you have too much money to waste.
Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III, 1Ds Mark IV
Nikon D3X, D3S.
Sony A900, A850.

Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II LD IF

Salam.

Yup. Suddenly I got a cheap bargain on this lens. Never thought of getting one. But obviously I have to let go some of my lenses and Gundams in order to get this one.


The Digital Picture have made a review on this lens and I believe there in no point making another review. You can click here to read the review.

Here are some highlights of this lens.
- very good image quality
- small, light, fast and affordable package
- very useful tool
- fast (f/2.8)
- general-purpose focal length range
- sharp even at f/2.8


I'm getting this lens as an upgrade for my previous lens. Though it doesn't have the range compared to Sigma 18-125mm, it does have a very wide opening and aperture.
