I use to have SLR camera before used during my study as an architecture student in UIA... was bought in 1998, using my savings since child.. cost me about RM1500. I bought CANON EOS 500N in Bintang Maju fotoshop at Central Market (CM). At that time photography is costly and "only for people with money", but then I'm willing to sacrifice my saving only for my hobby or "minat". Really fall in love with photography since childhood, reading photography books and adore their works. My experience using camera starts after my mom bought me a small camera from mecca during their haj (1992). Then, film cost about RM7-12 for 36 exposure of 100 i'm not sure what... :) but usually i bought 36 exposure of 400 coz it can cater both dark and bright environment, which will cost about RM14-16 per roll of film.
I was wondering around for years since digital SLR in the market but not single one make me fall in love... until about few years back... Falling in love with CANON 7D. Although my film SLR still in good condition but the running cost today is very expensive... film now days very hard to find and if you want to view your picture you have to process it, processing fee is about RM5 and photo printing for 4R is 60-80 cent per piece, back then you can only get it at 30-35 cent per piece...
I'm quite fussy on buying things... Not only the specification i'm looing for but the looks, the overall composition, weight, price and what it can give me... I'm looking for camera that can capture in speed, fast.. bole tangkap banyak kali dengan cepat... their waiting time paling sikit... and can do most of my last SLR camera can do.. but still this 7D has few thing it can't do compared to my film SLR... but it is minimal... I'm thinking of both NIKON or CANON?
Apa pendapat kawan-kawan? Which is better? or thei's other i don't know about.... SONY, PANASONIC, SAMSUNG, etc.
