Funniest joke on the internet 2007

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This year CNN.com state that the funniest joke on the Internet is :

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn’t seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy takes out his phone and calls the emergency services.

He gasps: “My friend is dead! What can I do?” The operator says: “Calm down, I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: “OK, now what?”

My First DSLR

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

After a good friend of mine let me take a few photos on his Nikon D40 I have took the plunge into the world of Digital Single-lens reflex cameras and purchased a Cannon 400D

In My Opinion Positives :

  • Very quick to turn on
  • Takes pictures quickly and many to grab the moment
  • Manual is good, easy to understand, comprehensive and small enough to carry in a bag
  • Love the 9 point focus
  • Easy to use the menus
  • Fast to change settings
  • Optic adjuster has fine settings and enough change support
  • Easy to plug into my mini USB
  • Works very well with Vista with both Raw format and picture support
  • Quality is very much better than my old portable Camera
  • Good quality 2.5 inch screen on the back
  • Preview operation is fast and functional
  • 10 mega-pixels seems the perfect resolution for my needs
  • Lots of options to learn when i`m ready, put very easy to learn the basic options for Portrait etc

In My Opinion Negatives :

  • After 4 or so flash photos it takes a while for the flash to recharge
  • I can’t seem to use raw file format for the auto modes
  • Cost (but comparable to other similar camera)
  • Needed to buy a bag for it (SlingShot 100 AW) as advised from another friend.
  • Could’t find a firmware patch path at Cannon, this is disappointing as I love to gain new features on gadgets

Overall the positives far out way the negatives and i`m very happy with my choice
