Zuiko and Birthday Wishes

Wow... I didn't touch my DSLR for quite a while. Having the S90 in the back pocket did not help the situation at all. But, for this occassion, I had to shoot the DSLR. I knew the S90 won't cut it! My son's birthday was 12 days ago, and I confessed that setting up the DSLR gears took quite a while for me to do!

Making a child happy is the greatest thing any person could do. It's the most wonderful feeling. The moment, the innocence, the cheeriness - everything is shown through their eyes. Seeing and feeling it with him is wonderful, and to capture the right moment is magical.

Birthdays are easily one of the things that make a child happy. Having his friends around him celebrating in joy, the presents, and the fun of it all. To see them mesmerized with the event and immersed with the love is just bliss!

And, make sure the flash batteries are all charged up, coz I forgot mine! Maybe due to the monthlong isolation from serious photography has made me a forgetful photographer. And, somehow without motor drive mode, I managed to get the shot! Talk about luck!

Zuiko and Evolve

Recently, Olympus Malaysia has created a website titled There was some hype in Facebook and websites.

9 days to evolve? Hmmmm...

There's rumor everywhere on the unveiling of the new E-5, or even a new line of E.. the E-700 series. No matter what it is, I really hope this will be something that is really, really good for us Fourthirds users.

Nonetheless, I have a feeling it's not for the Fourthirds... I am guessing it's for the microFourthirds E-PL1 camera. This is considering the expected launching of the E-PL1 in March 2010.

Ah well... let's wait and see.
