Nikon released a new DSLR yesterday and it is the D300s model, it is the upgraded version of D300 model which released almost 2 years ago. In fact, I plan to buy a new DSLR this year with this model in my options kit. Since Nikon released an upgrade version, I will spend some time to study the specification. Oh… not forgetting the price also. Unfortunately, I still couldn’t get any pricing yet from Nikon Malaysia website. If it fits my budget, I think I may go for it.
Those who know me may know that I owned a Canon 400D model, so why the hell do I ‘plan’ to buy Nikon? Eh… it is quite a long story but let me straight to the point. Initially, I was planning to buy Nikon but my colleague advised me that since I was a newbie, why don’t I get a second hand DSLR first and buy a new one later with the brand I want. So I took his advise and this is what happening now.
Anyway, below is the brief introduction of this new Nikon D300S model.

Finally, I got my new Laptop cum Digital Camera backpack today. In fact,Â I have been looking around for this type of bag because I want to take photo where ever I go, which of course, including when I am working on the road. You see, there are a lot of interesting things, people and scenery along the road you travel everyday, so since I bought my Canon 400D DSLR camera, why don’t I just carry around and take photo, right? I believe this will be very fun. 🙂
While I was looking around for the bag, I was scared off by those branded expensive bag which cost around RM 400+ to RM1K initially. But after I saw this item on the EBay, I straight away bought it with some survey and research on it. In fact, I just made the order yesterday around 1pm, and I received the bag today around the same time. This really surprised me because I thought normally it would take about 2 days time in Malaysia to deliver it to me.
Anyway, I am happy with this bag and start from today onwards, when you see someone taking photo anywhere on the road, don’t be surprise!!!
Below are some the photos of my new Kata DR-466 bag. This bag is quite spacious, it can put two Digital SLR Cameras, one with mounted lens, another 3-4 additional lens, flash, accessories and some personal gears. Besides that, its back compartment can also fits a 15″ inches laptop. It is really just my type of coffee. 🙂

Finally, I got my DSLR camera few days ago. It is a second hand Canon 400D with 18-55mm kit lens. Â Yes, it is second hand, not a new one. Reason? Simple, because I am a beginner without much experience with DSLR camera. So in stead of getting a new camera, I decided to take my friend’s advice to go for a second hand DSLR. Once I have a better skill and $$$, then only I will get myself a new good DSLR camera. So as a starter, second hand Canon 400D is a perfect choice for me.
Below are some photos taken by my Olympus Digital Camera:
Oh, by the way, you may wonder why I buy another camera since I already have Olympus Digital Camera, right? I think the most important reason is that Digital Camera can’t really take a good quality photo. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying Digital Camera is not good, just that I need a better camera to take better quality photo. Another reason is probably the shutter speed of the camera, my current Digital Camera is very slow in term of the shutter speed, so DSLR is the better one in this area. Third reason, and I think should be the final reason, I like to take landscape and night photo, so DSLR meet my requirement perfectly.
