Oops, can't edit my post.  Above post should have read:



Does anybody know where I can get the aforementioned camera?  My friends have also been telling me to go to Quiapo.  Is it safe to buy there?  Baka naman chop-chop na yung camera pagbili ko.

funny...taking shots is banned in a mall or something?



was at glorietta yesterday with my Canon EOS300.  was taking some shots then a guard approaced me and told me taking shots was not allowed.  wasn't aware of that... didn't argue.  put the lens cover back on the cam and went my way.



funny thing was... i already took some shots in the parking lot...yes in the parking lot (basement parking).... maybe nobody saw me there or something.  long exposures (slow shutter speeds) are fun!

you'll require a permit from the mall management to take pictures

inside a mall. my immigrating friend and I secured one to be able to shoot greenbelt park he wanted souvenir photos because he ain't

coming back anytime soon.



of course, you can always shoot glorietta during Photoworld Manila

in January of every year or when there's an event in the activity center

ganyan talaga sa Makati pero there was one time I took a night

shot of the Manila Peninsula waterfall at around 5am with a crescent

moon in the backdrop.



I asked the roving guard and he said fine go ahead.

Ayun caght it on several exposures although the moon is way

over exposed.  I'll just sandwich I much larger moon image into

it tutal naman parang spec na lang yung moon na maliwang dahil

sa 28mm lens na gamit ko

I need help,what to buy:



Canon Ixus V3 sa Quiapo ko bibilin any idea how much?



                                    OR



Pentax Optio S from a friend 20k 3mos warranty



I read the reviews from the net except for the Pentax, it was just released or will be.what attracts me to the Pentax is its portability its much more smaller than the Ixus though Canon has Direct print and parts are easier to find.How long is the warranty in Quiapo btw.Need help guys asap.Thanks

its for security reasons din kasi it can be interpreted as 'scouting out' the 'target area or something like that.  you know, like where best to hide a bomb, where the guards are stationed, getaway paths, etc.

dean,



Did you get a new SLR or is that the same camera you had last year?



jo3pit,



S2 based on experience on people here & also on reviews produces 'more usable' pics out of the camera than either its Nikon or Canon counterparts. It is not really the sharpness yata but better colors daw, not much need to tweak. Buti ka pa DSLR na! :) Ano mga lenses mo?



mccoy26,



Check w/ Mondy. I think he also sells Pentax Optio.





Makati CBD - normally BAWAL pics anywhere unless may permits daw. Buti na lang kung tulad ni dulber na swerte at mabait iyong guard :)





Kumusta na mga kapwa photo-nuts :)

CMT,



na cancel yung trade in.. since  na-realize ko na mas mataas pa rin ang resale value ng nikon compared sa S2.



got the ff lenses



Nikkor 50mm "Prime"

Nikkor 70-200mm

Sigma 400mm TeleMacro "Prime"

Sigma 24-70mm

Tamron 28-200mm



Still contemplating abt. (Sigma 15-30 or Nikkor 17-35)

jo3,

ipon na lang para sa proprietary DX Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G

equivalent to 18-36mm in 35mm



proprietary because it won't work with other camera's using

the same lens mount nor on actual Nikon film cameras.



CMT,

welcome back!

source ko pa Velbon Ultra Maxi with Columbia Global

the darn thing is 3 inches shorter than our Maxi 343E

it features internal leg locking sections and the PH-237Q

head with quick release plate.  It still rises to the same

height as the 343E. heads from either legs can be interchanged

BTW, a few photogs (hobbyist, semi-pro, friends) & I have pooled some resources to setup a photog studio. I will post here if it is ready for use na. It will have around 3 monolights, seamless background, the usual umbrella, softboxes, etc.



We will also be offering for rent the SLRs/DSLRs that the group have in case it is needed/wanted. We currently Fuji S2 & Canon D30, D60. I'll most probably be buying a Canon 10D :)



We will also be handling regular photog rackets like weddings, birthdays, debuts, etc.



Just get in touch in case you need photog services :)
