Flora and Fauna


Last week end, I manage to bring my kids to go for a jogging at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, since I've been away for quite some time, so I think this activity is the best activity to spend quality time with them and to reduce my growing stomach...I manage to snap some nice photos with my D60, below is the result, not bad for the amateur like me.... :)

As usual the "princess" will be the model, I like this play ground it is very colorful

My first DSLR


At last, I decided to buy a new DSLR camera for myself, after taking a few consideration for which model should be selected, Nikon D60 was choosen due to the good features, ease of use to provide incredible digital photos and easy to use function and also reasonable price for beginners level.

Nikon Digital SLRs combine capability with ease of use to produce incredible digital images. Whether you’re new to digital photography or a seasoned pro looking for the latest in technology, you’ll be able to compare the features, explore the benefits and delve into the details and specs. Turn your ideas into images with a Nikon D-SLR
Below is the first photo taken with my Nikon D60 camera.

Below are the key features of the D60:
1) Extraordinary 10.2-Megapixel DX-format Nikon Picture Quality: Nikon's high-performance,
10.2-megapixel DX-format CCD imaging sensor and exclusive EXPEED image processing
concept provide added cropping freedom and the ability to make larger prints.
2) Includes AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR (Vibration Reduction) Image
Stabilization Lens: NIKKOR lenses are famous for breathtaking sharpness and faithful color.
With Nikon's fast, accurate autofocus and Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization
technology built in, pictures are even sharper, free from blur caused by camera shake when
shooting hand-held.
3) Fast Startup and Split-Second Shutter Response: With fast startup and split-second shutter
response, the D60 eliminates the frustration of shutter delay, capturing moments that other
cameras miss.
4) Shoot Continuously at up to 3 Frames per Second: Capture sports action, precious moments
and fleeting expressions at up to 3 frames per second, for as many as 100 consecutive JPEG

5) Active Dust Reduction System with Airflow Control: Nikon's Active Dust Reduction System
activates automatically, along with Airflow Control technology to reduce the amount of dust
that reaches the sensor.
6) Easy Operation with Intuitive Controls: Intuitive controls and an onboard HELP Menu System
with Assist Images make the D60 truly easy to use, enabling everyone to capture beautiful
memories perfectly.

7) Nikon's EXPEED Image Processing Concept: Nikon's original digital image processing concept,
EXPEED, comprehensively optimizes pictures, shot after shot.

8) 8 Digital-Vari Program Automatic Shooting Modes: Eight Digital Vari-Program Modes include:
Auto, Auto Flash-OFF, Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close Up and Night Portrait; each of
which adjusts automatically for optimal results for everyday shooting situations. Each mode
considers lighting conditions and possibilities, aperture, shutter speed, white balance, hue, tone,
sharpening and more to make creative photography as simple as rotating the mode dial.

9) Nikon's Smallest Digital SLR Ever! Beautifully styled, the D60 makes high-performance digital
SLR photography easier and more convenient than ever. You'll be amazed at the power packed
into a camera that weighs just over 16 ounces.

10) 2.5-Inch, 230,000-Dot Color LCD Monitor with 170-Degree Wide-Angle Viewing: Playback
images are easy to see and function menus are easier to use with a larger and brighter color
LCD monitor. The large 2.5-inch LCD monitor enables image preview at up to 19 times
magnification and has large type fonts with easy-to-view menus. Auto rotating LCD display
provides automatic horizontal and vertical graphic display orientation.

11) Advanced HELP Menu System with Assist Images: The D60's Assist Images help you select
the appropriate settings for many camera features by showing an example image typical of that
setting, as well as an advanced HELP Menu for the current item selected. The D60's Question
Mark icon (?) indicates that help is available for the currently selected item; just press the
HELP button beside the LCD monitor to see a context-sensitive HELP page.

12) Nikon 3D Color Matrix Metering II: The D60's 3D Color Matrix Metering II evaluates each
scene for brightness, color, contrast, size and position of shadows and highlights, selected focus
area and camera-to-subject distance, comparing that information against an onboard database
of more than 30,000 actual photographic scenes. The result delivers instantly and precisely
determined exposures for each scene, even in challenging lighting conditions.

13) Image Optimization Options: The D60's Optimize Image setting lets photographers adjust
color, contrast and sharpening, as well as other image settings, according to the type of scene or
output desired. Settings include: Normal, Softer, Vivid, More Vivid, Portrait, Custom and Black
and White, each of which are automatically adjusted based on sophisticated Nikon algorithms or
user-selected settings for optimum results.

14) Built-in Speedlight with i-TTL Automatic Flash Control: Nikon's innovative i-TTL flash control
evaluates flash exposure with incredible precision to achieve better automatic flash balance and
deliver outstanding results. The built-in Speedlight is always ready to bring beautiful
exposures to darkened conditions, as well as add sparkle for fill flash in outdoor situations for
enhanced twilight shots or an added impact to daylight images. In low-light or back-light
situations, added illumination from the built-in Speedlight can make the difference between an
average snapshot and a dazzling picture.

15) Fast, Accurate 3-Area Autofocus: The D60's advanced 3-Area AF system and the refined
algorithms inherited from more advanced Nikon digital SLR cameras deliver fast, efficient and
precise Autofocus. AF refinements deliver greater precision with fast, more consistent subject
acquisition and improved focus tracking for consistently sharper pictures.

16) In-Camera Image Editing and Enhanced Retouch Menu: Highly versatile in-camera editing
features through the Retouch Menu include Nikon D-Lighting, Red-Eye Correction, Image
Trim, Image Overlay, Monochrome (Black and White, Sepia and Cyanotype) along with
Skylight, Warm Tone and Color Balance filter effects. New effects and controls include Quick
Retouch, NEF (RAW) Processing, Cross Star and Color Intensifier filters. This provides greater
creative freedom without the need for a computer for those who prefer to send pictures
directly to a printer.

creative fun to your pictures.
