My 2nd try to capture photos for futsal events, using only 50mm F1.8 and 70-200 F4 for the event.
After this experience I felt having a fast lens is really useful in capturing all the action. Wishing to get a F2.8 tele soon, if my stocks do well, hehe

This was the scene at the Canon Warehouse sale in Canon HQ at Peremba Square. I was there at 9:45 and already there was a long queue. The queue was for those who wanted the 3 bargain items, with the rm 1 calculator being the most attractive, the other two were printer.

Most of the item on sale were Powershots A series camera and Ixus. There were also some printers and some outdated accesories.

By the time i reach the booths, there was already no queue for the people to buy the calculator and everyone was holding rm 1 bill and just jostling to get in to buy. Those who already bought have to fought their way out of the crowd. It was just a mess.

The sale was held outdoor and the canopy only cover the canon dealers with nothing covering the customers. If it were to rain it would be even more havoc.

After months of scouring the net and forums for quality 2nd hand lenses, I’ve bought my first L lens, 70-200 F4L. Just nice, last weekend was the KL Fashion Week, so here are some test shots done using my new lens. Although the lens was half the weight of it’s F2.8 brother , my hands felt a bit numb and tired after the show.

Here are some of my failed attempt to capture the fireworks along Jln Tun Razak. The side of the highway was actually filled with cars parked on the emergency lane. I reached there around 11:45 and had to park my car almost at the end of the TUDM runway to find a decent parking.

Even though i carried with me a sturdy tripod, there was still handshake in the photos. This means that i must try to use mirror lockup mode / timer / remote shooting method next time.
