Crumpler Photo Neck Strap (The Industry Disgrace)

Crumpler Photo Neck Strap (The Industry Disgrace)

Bought Crumpler’s Photo Neck Strap, The Industry Disgrace, at Raffles City’s Crumpler Store for S$25. I have no idea why the website put S$34.24, I think must be an error or the price was reduced.

Conclusion, it is definitely worth the money as you will feel the difference between the stock neck strap and this one. The latter is much more comfortable because of the design and the cushion padding at the back.

Chingay Parade 2010

Chingay Parade 2010

Together with other bloggers, we are invited to the Chingay Parade 2010 by Singapore Tourism Board. The theme for this year parade is ImaginEast (东方奇想). This is also the very first time Chingay is paraded in the F1 Pit Building, beside Singapore Flyer. I thought the Pit Building is a good venue choice because it is near the sea, it gets breezes blowing to the land in the night. The Pit Building is divided into 3 sections, with parade starting from blue to red and lastly yellow. Spectators should also come dress according to the color section they are seated in.

A little background on Chingay Parade. This year is the 37th consecutive year Chingay has been run. Chingay used to be a celebration in Penang during Lunar New Year season, with men carrying Chinese decorated floats on their shoulders, dancers, jugglers and magicians entertain the crowd. It celebrates a beginning to a new year. But Chingay is introduced to Singapore in the 1972 as an substitute activity for the banned firecrackers during the festive season.

Bought the Phottix Cleon 2 Wireless Remote C8 from Red Dot Photo for S$59. You can pay using PayPal and delivery is free! Ordered on the 16th February 2010 and it was delivered to me in just 2 days, on the 18th February 2010!

The reason why I decided to get a remote control is because I have been bringing out my tripod lately to take group shots and it is kinda a hassle to keep repeatedly setting the timer. Did some research on Club Snap Forums and found out that the Phottix is one of the best wireless remote around.

Mom bought for me the Digi Cabi Electronic Dry Cabinet AD-050 for S$209 at Challenger VivoCity. The reason I decided to get a dry cabinet is because I saw some rust on my lens filter when I put my camera in my room. I only on the air-conditioner at night, so I am guessing the rust is created by the condensation of cold air. Since the camera cost about S$1.7K and it is an expensive and ongoing investment, I think it is worth it to get a dry cabinet.

LG Monitor W2486L Review

LG Monitor W2486L Review

When I first receive the LG Monitor W2486L with the box, the first impression it give me was it was very slim and light. The whole package including the box weights 6.6kg. When I unboxed the package and weight the monitor with its base, it weights only 4.6kg. I think my Dell 2408WFP weights twice of that and look at the size of the box compared to the W2486L’s box.

The attributes of it being slim and light is greatly due to the LED Technology that lights up the screen which gives it an excellent 2,000,000:1 Dynamic Digital Fine Contrast Ratio. Speaking of the screen display, the auto brightness control will automatic adjusting your screen brightness to match your surrounding room’s lightings.
