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.

I guess the biggest attraction in digital photography is the instant viewing after shooting. You can rectify by re-take a picture if something screws-up. But I guess everyone knows it has a long way to go to a state comparable in terms of entry cost like a film SLR.

Hi Film supporter: Having somewhere approaching 150 film cameras sitting on my shelves, I certainly hope you're right. But the survival of film will not be a matter of megapixels of resolution: it will be a matter of sales dollars. Film will survive as long as there are enough people buying enough of it for it to make economic sense to continue producing it. How long that is depends on you, me and millions of other photographers and the choices we make. rick :)=

Film will never be dead. A photograph captured on a cheap Canon eos66 which cost RM600 with fuji velvia 50 film has 25 megapixel of resolution compared with a photo captured with the ridiculously expensive Canon 1ds mark II which costs RM29,000 and have a lower resolution of 16 megapixel! An average negative film has an estimated resolution of 19 megapixel. A medium format film has over 100 megapixel of reoslution. See how digital cameras can match it!

That was fast .. I noticed the recently posted PDA ad has been "moved" to the new FTZ 4 computer section (could have deleted it from FTZ)... good job, moderator.

FIRST, this is PHOTOGRAPHY SITE. Next, can't you see or read a link at the add page to FTZ-4-computer s for your stupid Fujxxxsu ? Lastly, ths is a place to quote your price direct without guess works and NOT to ask me to visit your website at somewhere else (Can your item be better/more in numbers than at Ebay ??). JUST tell your asking price. Waste of time ! by the way, just in case you don't read at all, here it is the link for your wrong investment on the fujitsu - Bxta@FTZ

If I am not mistaken, this is the same buyer who had attempted to cheat me. The operandi sounds identical. He operated from KL but said from Perlis and uses a kampung address in Perlis to receive goods.

To be fair to Seller, I feel the ads put up by the Buyer to the "fix" Seller, must be migrated to the Zouk site and any further discussion continued from there.

I kinda like to see this focum section be used for settling dispute over a FTZ sales lah. Good spirit-man. Next, julie - it is very difficult in attempting to use pure description to solve a metering problem.

I think very few people would believe a seller. I am very unlucky that this has to happen to me!! I never advertised that there was AW in my Nova 5. In actual fact, I am not aware that there is a AW Nava 5 in the market. I was not willing to sell him because the bag was new and he had asked for RM150 only. I ignored him for a few days, but he kept on emailed me and agreed to pay full RM199. The postage was later agreed to be shared. He claimed that he knew Nova 5 but this, he later blamed me for directing him to a certain ERL, which certainly I did not! I am not a computer savvy person!! He never asked for any picture; claimed not necessary if bag condition was as described is Ok? Of course, definitely the bag was still quite new! For a few times, he claimed to have banked in and asked me to post the bag rith away but my checks revealed negative. I ran around for him, like crazy. I already smell rat because a few times he tried to deceive me. Finally, I told him for the last time, just scanned the image of the bank-in-slip to me and this I told him sternly or otherwise no deal. A day after I told him this , I received the image and I sent him the bag. He wanted the receipt number for tracking, etc, etc.

But alas, when he received the bag, he called and later SMS and said sorry lah BOS, size too big lah, how is he going to carry such a big bag, blah, blah. AW thing don't remeber him ever mentioned also! Which now became the issue of contention. I did agree in my SMS to him willing to give a 100% refund, but he must pay postage. He said he would want me to refund first as he needed the money as he got good offers and suggested that I immediately banked in the money with a certain account number given. Since I already have buyer, he told me to ask my buyer to bank in and he will post the bag from there to my new buyer. He was desperate, kept on SMS, called me many times. He said he will accept RM180 if I banked in first and accused me of not understanding his message. As I already smelled rat, how can I bank into his account or asked my new buyer to bank into his account without receiving the bag. He became annoyed and abusive and in between we did trade some harsh words! After that he agreed that he will send the bag then only I bank into his account. He SMS me about the amount that I would bank in, I simply replied the amount he has asked and thought nothing about it. He started to call me names like irresponsible and ****.Without wanting to drag the issue, since this is a small amount I contacted him immediately and explained that I agreed with him that I would bank in RM200. I thought the issue was settled and went out to do my own things. I think, he did try to call me after that, the purpose I still do not know today but I was out and being driving a diesel vehicle, most probably I couldn't hear the phone. When I arrived home, I couldn't contact him but later was surprised that he had done such a thing! I leave it to you to digest this!

Becareful. I have check with a few local sources with the FLASH DISK. The 1GB mini drive now sells around RM220-00 only - many outlets are still sellin at around RM320-00 (some asked for RM270-00). I bought two at the lower ground floor, a shop operates by an Indian at wisma central, jalan ampang. Just share with other Mac Users. It supports USB-2.0 too works ion both PCs & Mac.
