Photography in Malaysia Community Section:
Public Discussion Forum on Various Issues on Photography

Share common knowledge & exchanging experience with your views on photography. I know the original Free Trade Zone section may has some restriction imposed on its content (only Buy/Sell Stuffs), but as requests are pouring in to create another section for other subjects other than buy/disposal of equipments, so, as much as I can offer, I have used the template for other existing message boards to create another section for all of you to use. As this is a non-profitable section, so I didn't ask our programming staffs to creste a dedicated thread-like format. I am not sure if this has served its purpose but nevertheless, it is a channel for all of you to utilise to express other thoughts on photography-related issues. A few volunteers have been appointed to edit the content as it requires. You may make use of this convenience here to present your own views. Enjoy.

EOS-1N is a GREAT camera. Bottom line, BOTH are 35mm format...

::roll eyes:: another unfair comparison with the 'used' EOS 1N and 1Ds MkII. How old is the EOS 1N? Perhaps you should wait that number of years then buy the 1Ds MkII second hand for better comparison. In any case 'digital' does not mean 1Ds MkII! You can get a used EOS 300D for less than RM2k.

And what on earth makes you think I wasn't scanning my 'best' shots for the 100/day I sent out??? I typically shoot more than that on a job. Perhaps the scales are incomprehensible to an amateur sunday shooter? Digital really saved the day for me!

Dear brother Erb. One EOS-1DS MK II berapa ? RM25,000 ? One Canon EOS-1N may be cost only 10% used condition. To scan thousands of scanning is not viable - because one is smart enough to scan only usable images lah. Neither I think photos taken with your 1000 is usable in your MKII. But I agree with your point on ".. 'reduce cost' and improve my workflow!..". But film is here to stay but convenience of digital provides will spearhead conventional thnking of what to buy. Best is to ask Canon, Nikon, Minolta turun harga to affordable range without compromising image resolution first - but that takes TIME. So, ada orange choose digital, same juga live with what we have. Peace..

Dear All Fellow Malaysian Buddies:- After the two KLCC and Perdana Library projects. I may have an idea for some of you to work out your own talent in a similar fashion. If you have all the time in the world, why don't consider in creating something similar to those on your own ? On my recent 1/-1/2 day trip to SIBU, Sarawak, I have done an experimental project as Photo Showcase for Sibu . I would think such a conceptual idea can also be replicated easily by anyone of you. Be it a topic on Nature, Hibiscus, Trees of Jalan Ampang, Putrajaya, monuments, Merdeka Square, Kampar (Err.. my home town, 10,000 days ago) or Cameron Highland etc.. The only thing is, whatever you started must be specific and stay focus. Ideally, you need to prepare some write-ups and/or articles as supplements (if you can't, ask a friend or whoever that can lend a hand). IF it is a location like town, cities or waterfalls etc., I will complied them under either Landmarks of Malaysia OR Landmarks in Asia. If the project involves nature or environment, I will host it under . In the mean time, MIR has another web project at and see how viable to convert your creative images into commercial use (just reward you for your works done). Well, IF any of you is having problems with Web Design, I will assign friends to help (Or I do it on my own). Each of these projects may be able to provide path to GROW like what I did on the KLCC Showcases i.e. by inviting others to submit their new photos (naturally, to avoid each of the project be turning into a possibly junk yards, evaluation process on subsequent submission is required) and each project leader who started it will be the Moderator/Editor for that section. I am not sure if it will work as I know how difficult is to produce quality images for public consumption but come to think of it - what the hell - why are we having a camera and a brilliant in our mind then ? So, why don't have some fun on the Web ? The only advice I can offer to you is, DON'T RUSH. Take your time, MIR's offer will always be here, so, just concentrate building enough of QUALITY resources first before you send your material to us (address is via the MIR's link above). The volunteer project leader for this is my staff Miss Mae-V ( whom has helped me on content writing for the SIbu Showcase because she was there too. By the way, Mae-V is also our Editor for MIR's Left Brain section as well as the MIR-MPUG Community Users Support Forum.
Thanks for reading and may all of you have a good weekend ahead.

Ideally, everyone knows how to behave individually in a public forum. But some business deperados who seem doesn't know how to.. I have thought of the idea of approve prior to publish (the first two message boards to implement such control are the FTZ-Computer as well as MIR's guestbook. Similarly, the creation of the FTZ-4-BUSINESS section is partly aim to divert these business postings to a more appropriate forum for them to use.

But I would prefer/retain a human guard message board so as to ensure immediate posting be seen, verify or checked after submission. For all you DON"T know, there are 5-10 of such messages in a day, so what you saw is a slip-up as we (two other volunteers) have other duties to perform in businesses and cannot guard the content every hour. I am a web user and I understand how it feels. So, read the terms before you attempt to post your message(s). As for those who doesn't understand how to respect others good intention, help making web a better place to live with. But between choices of convenience for all FTZ users and implementation of other controlled measures, I will choose the latter for all of you. Thank You, Pal.

Alamak! FTZ should have a word cap or limit to their postings lar. All these phone, art and other irrelevant material sales pitches are getting longer and longer and filling up the entire screen! They should also removed ASAP! Waste of space for the REAL FTZ shoppers.

You compare the EOS 1Ds MkII and EOS 66 in only a narrow field and choose to ignore the many other points the 1Ds MkII has. In terms of price then, all those who bought the EOS 1v must have been idiots... because you can capture, with the same film, the same shots, but at a fraction the cost. And since the 1v is a film camera, it mean all people who buy film cameras are idiots. Yeah... what logic some people are driven to believe their beloved format is 'good.'

I switched to digital to 'reduce cost' and improve my workflow! Film is fine if you shoot a pitiful number each year... but if you shoot a lot, even for an amateur enthusiast, it's well worth it! Can you imagine sending 100 prints on a daily basis to clients to have them lose it and request it again as though you never sent it? And when you send a set to the magazine, the minister and several partners you're printing thousands of pics a day... all of which can be lost in transit... AND pretty expensive! CD's are SO convenient and these days... which client doesn't take them??? Last I checked, scanning about 100 photos a day at 25 megapixels is SUPER EXPENSIVE!!!
