It's Here!!!

It’s finally here! Came in the mail yesterday, pleasantly surprise.. didn’t know that it can actually be squeezed into the mail box. Hah.. meet my polarizing filter. =) Decided to blog abt it since I usually include pictures but for obvious reasons I can’t take a picture of my own beloved camera which has been the workhorse behind all the pictures on this blog. Hah.. unless I use a mirror of sorts.. hmm.. *ponders*

all the way from Hong Kong.. funny though, the ebay shop I got it from is an Aussie shop. Heh.. GLOBALISATION I tell you..

So anyway, for 30 bucks, I got me an adapter tube for my Canon Powershot A520, a UV filter, a Polarizing filter and a lens cap to protect them.. all delivered to my door step. Well, not quite, in this case, to my letter-box. Right.. ANYWAY. It’s quite a steal I’d say, cos I remember contacting Alan Photo from Funan Center and they quoted me $80 for the tube and polarizer only. Of course, it might just well be a higher-end/better quality stuff but for now, I’m satisfied with these.. =)

So finally I can try attempting to take slightly ‘better’ pictures, now armed with a filter. Interestingly, it’s been more than 3 years since I owned this camera, and it’s only in the past month that I started using the full Manual mode, over the Aperture priority or Shuttle priority.. for some reason, I’ve never really ventured into it. So perhaps now’s a good time. =) and on top of that, I finally get to USE the ability to attach adapters and filters onto my camera.

Once again, a big Thank You to all who have contributed to my camera.. Best present so far. Even after all these years, I Love It!
