He also suggested the Canon EOS 40D on the day before we went out for camera hunting but I was quite reluctant with it (I'm not a Canon fan). Of course, I couldn't resist from reading and comparing for the last time before the hunt. The specs of the EOS40D was 1 grade better than the Nikon D80 in several aspects. We did manage to find 1 D80 at RM3100 but I couldn't resist to try 1 more shop (several km away from MidV) and ended up observing the EOS 40D since I never really try it before.
The moment I took a snap from it, "Wow". That's the only thing that came out of my mind.
I took a few shots of the plants from Xavier Hall right after I purchased the camera. It was nothing much but it did make such a big difference compare to my old Sony Cybershot DSC-V1.
It definitely won't take a photo as good and as fast as DSLR but still it's a good camera compare to most cameras I tried in the past.
I hate say this but, it's definitely ironic to buy something you used to resist. I used to be a Nikon and Sony fan but now, I've been converted to Canon. Anyway, it's good thing to open up more to other models to see more opportunities. More photos to come more tricks to learn :)
