Jennifer's Switzerland Holiday

Thanks to Digi Malaysia, Jennifer was on a trip to Switzerland invited by friends from KK last August. Browsing at her collections after the trip, these selected shots have been in my folder for quite a while. Time to let em out!

Being her, she can carry her Canon Ixus point & shoot camera with her everywhere she goes but you don't expect her to be using it. I've got to admit, I'm the 'shutterbug' between us. Only one day before the trip, I gave her a 'crash course' in using the Nikon D40X with kit lens 18-55mm attached. She even slept halfway when I came to the technical part like setting the shutter speed & aperture. Can you believe that? Anyway, reading & listening to experiences of those who've been there, I didn't want her to shoot using just a point & shoot camera since Switzerland is well known for its beautiful sceneries. Therefore I urged her to bring along the D40X since I was not invited to come along... *Sob..*sob.. But then again, if I was invited to come along, you wouldn't be seeing her '1 Hour D40X Photography Course' results in this post now, would you?!

Although I'm frequently shooting with the Nikon D300 now, I must say the D40X has never fail to deliver the best colors since I first got it & of course, I still love this compact little DSLR camera! D40X is no longer in production but for interested beginners, I recommend the Nikon D60. If you can chip-in a bit more extra cash, go for Nikon D80. You will notice a different watermarking on these photos. That's because, they were shot by Jenn (obviously) but I did the minor touch ups. Lets just say for now, J.C (Jennifer Chang) Photography is picking up... So...Enjoy......

Anderson said...

Phil,

The tool is good but without the eye, the tool is still just a tool. So, it is still about the person who uses the tool.

Cheers mate!

InobonG ProPer said...

I agree with Anderson. No matter how good your tool is if you don't know how to use it, masih tidak ngam juga tu...Its not a magic camera.
