It’s been a week since the concert and I am still reeling from the awesomeness that is Super Junior (:
Okok, maybe that is a little too over but yes, let’s talk about 2 things today – the concert and the camera I smuggled in (:
Super Show 3 (#SS3SG)
I confess! This is my first paid concert and the first time I’ve actually queued to get tickets! I actually went to apply for an OCBC credit card just so I can buy the tickets during priority sales! (: Ber and I were discussing on how we should “attack” once sales start! After some boo-boos (hello, Murphy), we managed to get excellent seats BUT! they are seperated. Awww~
On the contrary, when the sales for the 2nd show came on, I was in a meeting with my boss about my confirmation! I was half an hour late but Shuyun and I still managed to get pretty awesome! Oh, we kept getting good tickets, letting go, getting good tickets and letting go because we can’t decide if we were being too extravagant by going to both shows. But we did buy the tickets in the end! (:
SUPER SHOW 3, HERE WE COME!!
While the first show feels a little below standards, my seats were awesome! Thanks to ber, who gave me the arena seat! This is how close the boys can get IF they came up –
Awesome right? (:
On day 2, I was in the last row of the Terrace seat. Quite far away but at least I was in the centre! My Arena seat was right at one corner so at times, I have restricted view! Boohoohoo!
ANYWAYS! Day 2 was AWESOME! (: More fan service! The boys were having more fun on stage! Everything felt more personable! (: Awesome awesome! (: I was also shouting along to the fan chant! Muahahaha!
Aish! I miss Super Junior! >.<
You know, the last time I went so gaa-gaa over some pop group was when I was 13? I remember queuing for A1’s autograph session at Junction 8. But after that, I deeply regretted it and it put me off celebrities and idols till…Super Junior came along 😛
For more Super Junior goodness from SS3SG, head to my Facebook ! I’ve tweaked the privacy settings to “Everyone” so if you can’t view it, let me know! (:
Superb Canon Powershot S95 – the compact with DSLR function (:
Stupid concert rules about not allowing DSLR into the concert 😦 I had to leave my D300 and my 18-200mm at home! Imagine the awesome photos I could have taken T_T Sigh.
HOWEVER! CANON S95 to the rescue! Thanks to Renhao, Ogilvy and Canon, I managed to get my hands on the S95 for the concert!
What is the S95? (: Well, it’s a compact but the zoom is awesome-pawsome! It’s from 28-105mm! After 105mm, there’s still more zoom (though I try to avoid doing that)! So in the end, the zoom power is pretty awesome! (:
Don’t believe? Let me show you some photos from Super Show 3!
This was from the Arena seat on Day 1 –
yesung was looking in my direction but my focus was on Siwon :p
Awesome quality, yes? (: Yes, you might say that the boys are already quite close since I was at Arena but imagine if I was only using a normal compact! The quality won’t be as good and I won’t be able to get THAT close! 😀
Okay, to convince you of the awesome zoom, photos from my Terrace seat on Day 2. I was in the last row!
that was where I was seated on Day 1(:
And to show the power of the Canon S95….I caught Shindong flashing the crowd while doing Single Ladies with Lady Hee Hee! 😛
my eyes T_T
Not sure about you but I know my compact sure CMI! The photos taken will be 10 times grainier and 10 times more blur!
Other than the awesome zoom, the Canon S95 contains all the features that the Canon IXUS 130 has PLUS some more features like Nostalgic, Poster Effect, Super Vivid and…the HDR function! (: Saves quite a bit of photoshop work!
As I was rather busy, I didn’t have the opportunity to take the camera out for a proper shoot. But while fiddling with it on my walk home one day, I did something “cool” (at least in my book) with the HDR function !
bus moving backwards?
More shots from the camera –
At Vivo (:
I also like how I can have full control of the Shutter, Aperture (from F2.0) and ISO (from ISO 80 to ISO 3200) (: This shot was taken in full manual mode! I know it’s not perfect (becos I was just getting acquaintance with the camera) but it’s not possible on the compacts that I have used.
Ohoh! There’s this ring function that is unique to the S95! You can set the function you want to adjust when you twirl the ring in front. It was quite useful for me when I was shooting SS3. As the lighting of the concert kept changing, my ISO had to change to fit it so I just set the ring function and every time the lights changed, I just twirl abit and my ISO changed 😀
For some more shots on the S95, you can go to my S95 album or my SS3SG album! (: For more detailed review of the S95, go to dpreview! (:
Ohh! I also managed to “convince” 2 of my colleagues to get the S95 (: Heeee! So far, they are happy with it 😀
With that said, I miss SUPER JUNIOR!!!
