Yesterday, after visiting Top Career 2011 at Tokyo International Forum (for 留学生), I got myself stuck at 7-story BIC CAMERA Yurakuchoo, right in front of the building.
I can’t tell you much about what I saw from 1st to 5th floor since I have no story about that! Haha… But when I came to B2 at last, which is a floor full of camera, I can’t help myself to take a look. I really want to buy a camera, but I was still thinking not to buy it since I didn’t like photography at all.
My iPhone 3GS camera is not adequate for me who wants to zoom anything. But I’m quite satisfied with its auto-focus feature and self adjusting light (although it’s still not so good for me). And I have to be satisfied because i have to pay 70,ooo yen (7 million rupiahs) for this gadget which couldn’t do multitasking (but I loved its human design). Since that was too much for me, then I decided not to buy a camera at all here in Japan.
But lately, I’d like to take a photo with Dita’s DSLR Camera, which she bought from Bahar, whom provoked her to buy his SLR. I have no sense of photography at all! I can’t tell whether this photo is good or not. But I like the photo which has rich detail etc etc which I couldn’t found on any other camera but DSLR.
So… when I went to the digital camera booth, I really have no idea which digital camera I want. As long as it’s touch screen, I’d probably buy it (now I’m a touch screen maniac!). I think the new Sony Cybershot which could optimize photos taken at low light is quite good.
しかし、at Sony SLR camera booth, it has pictures of cats taken by Sony DSLR displayed! I saw it all and I think it’s a good idea if I could take a picture of whoever-gonna-be-my-cat or just ordinary alley cats with DSLR. Suddenly I want an SLR!
Huhu… but to think that I am esthetically dumb, and have no idea about photography (I do not even know about lenses!), I have to think maybe quite hundred times before buying that reallly expensive camera.
And there’s another disadvantage, I was used to be in the photo because I seldom take pictures. If I had that DSLR, I’d probably ended in nobody’s photos. But maybe I could trade it off by having my Flickr or Picasa… hehehe
Aaargh.. all that I need is to take a good photo of cats!
