My New Toy - Kiss Digital X3

Also known here in Malaysia as the Canon 500D.

brand new canon 500D in box


Ha ha! Finally I have my very own DSLR!

Now feel jealous non-big-ass-camera-owners!

unboxing


Unboxing something new always feels like you're stripping for the very first time in front of your boyfriend.

No wait, or was it the other around?

It was after I got it that I realised 500D was also known as the Kiss Digital X3 in other countries like Japan.

A KISS Camera!!!

This camera was designed for me! OMG! It's fate!

It's so cute and small for an SLR and it's utterly gorgeous.

Oh.. what's so special about this camera? Ho Ho Ho...

I'm going to shock you.

It can take video!

Yes! 500D is the second of EOS cameras to shoot movies (after EOS 5D Mark II in September 2008)! One nifty little breakthrough.
1080p HD video recording at 20fps, take that!!

But with that quality, I can shoot what? 7 seconds of video? -.-

Let's worry about that later. I'm just begining to play with the camera, fixing my own lens kit that comes with the box up and shooting this and that and everything that moves.

18-55mm canon lens


Fiddling around the settings and stuff is harder than I thought. Then again it took me months of practice to perfect my use of Canon Ixus 860. So I guess it's all patient and consistent usage.

What I love about the camera is that it's so small that it's light to be carried around.

Look how small it is next to me baby's 50D.

  18. I got the same camera a month ago, very happy apart from a one off card reading error, it's cheaper to buy in Singapore by the way ;)

    HD video at 20fps is a bit of a waste, its too jumpy to be any good, even at 720i its a bit slow.

  19. Made China or Thailand ek?

  20. I have a D90 but I am still jealous of your 500D... my video lower resolution than yours... but a friend of mine did not like the sound that the shutter of the Canon 500D makes... it feels like the camera has asthma... hahaha

  21. Cool... I like..

  22. if you are a beginner P mode is very helpful. it can take photos on most situations. however basic zone (portrait, landscape, macro, sport etc) is a preset that you quickly can explore if you want to achieve certain specific photography needs. but don't stay there too long. your ultimate is to move to creative zone ie AV (aperture value), TV (time value) & the ultimate Manual mode.
