Couple of days ago, I thought the moon was just beautiful. Hence, the entry this week features a moon shot. It wasn’t a full moon, but I thought it was just nice.
I took this shot with my longest lens available, the 70-200mm f/4L USM. The shot was, of course, shot at its tele end at 200mm. As stated in the caption, I shot this handheld at 1/60 sec, f/14 at ISO400. I took three shot, and this one is good enough at the 2nd attempt.

I’ll be busy with preparation for some assignment next week. Hopefully everything goes well. It’s good to be busy at this end, and I am sure all the effort will bear fruit when time comes.
There was no Picture of the Week being featured last week, due to my travelling to outstation, coupled with a shooting assignment oevr the weekend. Then, upon returning to Kuching, I was stunned (still am) by Steve Jobs’ death. He will be missed.
This week, I’m posting a sample pic from the ever-reliable Panasonic LX3. The trend these days has swirled toward mirrorless, interchangeable lenses digital camera, in the likes of Panasonic’s G-series, Olympus PEN, Sony’s NEX etc. Even Nikon has joined in the ranks with the announcement of the V1 and J1.
Despite so, I believe such high performance compact still has its appeal to the consumers. I personally would rather to have a pocket sized compact for leisure trip, than having to get the interchangeable lenses anytime!
Here this image was shot in RAW with LX3, at a 16:9 ratio. There wasn’t much adjustment applied, only minor tweak on exposure, contrast and WB. This was shot with the Macro focusing mode on.
COFFEE: Shot with Panasonic Lumix LX3
I personally think it’s pretty slick! The successor to this model in Panasonic product line would be Lumix LX5.
It is sad to learn about Steve Job’s death. The world has lost a man of great talent, and with creative visions. Rest in Peace, Steve. We will miss you.
