And since that incident happened, I haven't been shooting lately, partly because it was too sad on my part. But I regained my composure once more and positively thought of investing for a new camera, this time a DSLR, as opposed to my previous one which is a prosumer camera. With this in mind, I can extend my photography horizon and even widen my perspective on photography. But I'm not leaving Akita dead there, we'll have him fixed and I'll pass it on to my siblings.
And just a few hours ago, my package arrived! It's a Nikon D5000 kit with 18-55mm VR lens. Thanks so much to David Angelo Bornilla (http://www.dbgadgets.multiply.com) and his wonderful team for the prompt responses, polite approaches, and patient transaction. If it wasn't for him and his team, I wouldn't have been able to afford to buy this new camera. They provide quality products at very low prices (though I wonder if they do international shipping or just here in the Philippines). And did I mention the transaction is blazingly fast? Yes, you heard me. I got the package in only not less than 24 hours and in very good shape. So if you're interested in buying some gadgets for yourself or for friends and family, I highly recommend them. Very reliable and accurate. Go check them at http://www.dbgadgets.multiply.com.
In the meantime, I'm taking this free time off of work to read the user manual. And of course, I wouldn't let you leave without seeing some images, would I? Check out the images below (excuse them for their noise, it was taken with my phone).
I name her "Naomi".
