Should I go for Mac or PC?

I’m in the market for a new computer. The machine I’m using right now can’t really cope with the work that I’m doing anymore.

On top of the usual word processing and etc, I’ll be using the new machine for some serious photo editing, video editing, website maintenance, and perhaps some intense graphic design kind of work in the near future. Also, I need a machine of a professional photographer’s standard.

Before, I was set on going for the Apple iMac. However, after doing some research, a Dell XPS Desktop seems to be more appealing. Cheaper and with better hardware. Plus, I don’t have to acclimatise myself with Apple’s environment.

What do you guys reckon? Mac or PC?

The New Nikon D5000 (As good as the more expensive Nikon D90?)

The camera giant, Nikon, has introduced another product in its line-up. It’s called the Nikon D5000. Arguably matching the performance of the Nikon D90, the Nikon D5000 replaces the ageing Nikon D40.

Here are a couple of reviews >> Ken Rockwell and DPS

Nikon D5000, a good third camera for myself perhaps? Hahaha. I wish!

Just a quick round-up of the specifications:

– 12.3 Megapixels CMOS Sensor
– Able to capture HD videos
– 2.6-inch vari-angle (swivel) LCD monitor
– 11 AF points
– 4 FPS frame rate
– Ultrasonic sensor cleaner
– Uses SD/SDHC cards
– Default ISO 200 ~ 3200 but expandable to 100 ~ 6400.

The camera should be available around late April 2009.

So, anybody out there planning to get one?

Project Smoke: Fine Arts with Nikon D80 (Abstract Photography)

I enjoy looking at patterns. That is why I like abstract photography. Meaningless junk to the next person might actually mean something to me.

A couple of weeks ago, I did a mini project of my own codenamed Project Smoke. Nothing big, nothing fancy. Just trying my luck photographing smoke trails.

After two years of deciding which digital camera to go for, I finally acquired my very own digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. Previously, it was all about hand me downs, but this one is pretty special. I paid for it with my own money. So, yeah, I’m pretty stoked!
