Tokyo Photo Walk 1
Starting a new series called "Tokyo Photo Walk" where I bring you pics from various walks around Tokyo on taken through the digital SLR.
When I first got my EOS Kiss Digital N, I used to carry it around everywhere.
After a while however, it became a pain to carry around all the lenses, dust blowers and wot not which is why I stopped bringing it around - especially on overseas trips.
These pics where taken in the Nishikoyama area.
I still need to do more homework before I can set the camera to be completely manual.
Was thinking of buying a new SLR but decided to invest the money in a new lens instead - probably this one.
A new SLR would get me live preview, bigger/brighter LCD, self cleaning and ability to take 2 zillion frames per second and at a higher resolution - all features which are definitely nice to have but would rather spend the 100,000 yen on a new lens.
I do hear that digital SLR's have a life span of X number of shutter counts - is that true? @.@
Do you dabble in SLR shenanigans? If so, What camera/lens combination would you recommend to your fellow comrade who is thinking of taking up photography. I know that the first timer can be daunted by the amount of different lenses and camera brands.
Through these Tokyo photo walks, I want to bring you more of an idea of what life is like in Tokyo in addition to the Week in Tokyo series and will be taking pics of (in particular) bits of town that you would be walking around if you lived here - and not just the touristy places.
