DSLR..wish i could have one!


my ultimate wish ^_*

My kids would be my perfect model, Yay!

Digital SLR cameras were primarily for the professional photographers that need all the options to play around with to get the perfect shot regardless of the scenario. But there are a number of photographers that want to get digital SLR cameras of their own because they take better quality photos than the standard point-and-shoot ones. Editing photos just to fix their quality can be quite a chore if hundreds of photos are taken. Nikon provides a solution for these people by offering a new entry-level camera – the Nikon D3000

Nikon D3000’s Position in the D Series

The Nikon D50 which was introduced back in 2005 was the first of the entry series, but it was later replaced with the D40 and later sister camera – the D40x which didn’t last too long and was later replaced with the D60. With the D40 standing for nearly 3 years and the D60 as a newer alternative, entry-level photographers still needed to compare the features of both and pick the right one to fit their needs. Now the D3000 replaces both these models going back to the D50 roots where there is one modern entry-level camera.


Because of the old age of its predecessors, the Nikon D3000 sees a complete redesign of the body to make it resemble the other recently introduced midrange cameras, but that shouldn’t intimidate existing D40 owners as the controls are generally in the same locations. The new body is more of a comfort upgrade where there is a slight grip side rise making the D3000 much easier to handle. The mode dial also uses a new pattern for easier grip as well. Some of the edges and buttons have been rounded too and the cut allows gives easier access to the focus and zoom rings while keeping the palm rested.
Features remain the same on the sides and back, but one of the biggest design improvements is the larger 3.0-inch TFT LCD display which surprisingly surpasses the 2.7-inch of the D5000. Although the resolution remains the same, the font size is around 20% larger than the previous cameras making it excellent for entry-level users to comprehend. Some of the buttons had to be repositioned because of this larger screen, but the layout remains the same with some buttons having a slightly different shape. The top view is also the same as the earlier entry level models with the exception of a new GUIDE setting which bumps up the total of different modes on the mode dial to 13.


Plenty of features were introduced to many of the newest cameras that added to the midrange, and high-end lineups and fortunately, some of the features have been implemented in the new D3000 along with some of the favorite features that the D40 and D60 features enjoyed. The resolution stays at 10.2 megapixels with a 3.00x zoom and since it replaces the D40, now all of the latest cameras in the family have double digit resolutions.
The lens of the camera sees a decent upgrade with the D3000 now coming with the 18-55 VR lenswhich adds image-stabilization. It is complemented with a much bigger update on the inside with the new EXPEED image processor which is responsible for increasing the speed and sensitivity of the camera. This allows it to shoot 3 fps images and 100 to 1600 ISO sensitivities. These taken shots can be stored in the .NEF Raw image format which is new to Nikon cameras and can optionally make a JPEG copy at the same time.
There are some noticeable improvements to the autofocus as well where the Multi-CAM 1000 module is taken from the D90 and D5000 raising the number of focusing points from 3 to 11. The D3000 also features an efficient dust control system that uses vibration to get rid of the dust from the image sensor and low-pass filter.

Bottom Line

The Nikon D3000 has other minor changes that put the entry-level series to present time. In fact, entry-level users will love the new Guide mode which further assists these beginners by showing friendly visuals to help them choose the right options for their next shot. Combined with the other inherited features from other cameras and the fact that it doesn’t change much in both size and price, the D3000 is a must upgrade for D40 and D60 users.

 If only I have one DSLR (*sigh), I could create more piece, a canvas to be mastered.
nyah! One day a wish do come true nyahaha..

A Pulpy experience from Minute Maid!

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe this is just the same as the other ordinary branded bottled juice. But wait!! there's a pulpy in it? whoa, in a bottled juice? I can't believe this! how is this possible that it has no preservative added? I thought it is not a bottled juice but a fresh orange fruit..Yay! maybe there is a magic added, that made Minute Maid really taste soo good & (take note) "there's a real pulpy in it".
I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added.  So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out!
It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED!  That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse...carcinogens!  Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I was really amazed and wheew! i'm gonna drink a lot of it. My kids and my hubby will surely love this healthy real pulpy orange juice. And for sure, i'm gonna buy a lot of Minute Maid orange juice bottles.
So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good, right?  Not just because it doesn’t have those icky, harmful ingredients, but it also means that this thing is good for my 3 kids too. Aside from its yummiest and refreshing taste, it is also good for our health because it has "NO PRESERVATIVE ADDED". Which means goodbye to my fears of harmful Stuff which blocks our cells ability to rebuild itself, and could probably cause diseases.  My family will absolutely enjoy the real pulpy of Minute Maid orange juice.

So far anyone who still has a hard time believing that Minute Maid has got no preservatives added - meaning it's THAT natural, it's almost like it's plucked straight from the tree, it's just as Mother Nature wanted your orange juice to be, it's got nothing but the good stuff yes, none of those potentially toxic stuff that can harm your brain, kidneys, heart; cause tumors aargh- the list of preservatives' bad effects just go on!!! Anyway, just to prove a point on just how good Minute Maid Pulpy is 'cause it's got NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED, I'm gonna recommend and share this to my friends and to everyone. 

So what are you waiting now? it's time to choose & drink the healthy one. Grab one now! Drink Minute Maid Pulpy Orange juice now!
Be Healthy! Drink Minute Maid now!
Feels good to know about the real pulpy deal, right? C’mon show me a smile on the comment box, and you might win yourself a Really Pulpy Deal! (That’s a chance to win a Minute Maid gift pack simply by commenting. Sweet! C'mon you just might be picked as the lucky 'commentor'!)
