early in the morning, i went swimming with armz and gary at kowloon park. it's been a while since the last time i swam (when i was at orlando) or at that same pool (2 years ago). it appears to be much smaller than i could recall. funny this pool is actually one of the hottest spots for gay people in hongkong. hehehe. i don't really care as long as they don't bug me. (actually, i was holding my camera in that pic, but in a weird posture hehe)
then me and gary were shooting random pictures to test the image quality, his pantax optio 230 really impresses me, look at the color tone, lens sharpness and stuff. i figure it's better than any sony P series camera, and it's as good as nikon's line. for a small 2.0MP camera, i think this is hte best out there, side by side with nikon's coolpix 2500.
"Operation of the Optio 230 is easy and stress-free. With a simple turn of the well-proportioned dial, the user can easily choose from a range of shooting modes, such as Auto, Full selectable, Night Scene, and Movie, as well as playback modes"
and to whoever is interested in the nikon4500, the camera is perfect except
1. OVER CONTRASTY IMAGES UNDER HARSH SUNLIGHT !!!!
2. NO distance indication for manual focus (and no AF assist lamp)
3. no protection for LCD monitor
then i figure did i really need to upgrade from a 995 to a 4500?
do u think this can be fixed by firmware upgrade? other than that, shutter lag is not significantly longer than 995 for daily use. panaroma mode is super cool, movie with sounds kicks so hard, joystick rocks, the :CD monitor is as good as sony's P series. but it's still a nice medium-sized camera.
went for lunch at pizza hut with gary, then just hanged out at harbor city. traveled to central for BBQ with the whole class+teacher. 33C out there, and we're sitting by the fire, i only grilled 6 sausages and a bread and that's all. i left with alex+another gay.
i washed my face thrice today hehehe. i used the same technique from honduras: deodorant+baby powder.
and ooooo, look at my face, i'm getting fatter! woohoo!! whole-fat milk takes all the credit!!
and i figure i'm gonna get thin again once school starts next week *ahhhhhhh*
