Hi David! Faizal here. We met at the Eastin Hotel. It was great meeting another fellow Nikonian and sharing experience. Saw your Europe pics. All I can say was, I wish I was already a photographer when I was there over 7 years back. Anyway keep in touch dude! Who knows someday I might go to you for tutoring! You know the saying, in photography... you can never learn enough!

thanks for all the info you have collected. I have looking to break into the dslr world, but keep getting stuck between teh Xti and the D80. Your reviews, tidbits, and other links have really been great. I was totally going to get an Xti, but now I am seriously thinking D80. Happy Holidays

Hi David - I'm coming to KL in a few days time and wanted to check out the rpices there for the Pentax K10D. Any ideas for just the body, as I have two lenses from my old Pentax 35mm SLR, both bought about 6-7 years ago. Would they work on the K10D, do you happen to know? Looks like a very cool camera.

Keep up the good work,

Hi Dave, Really liked your gallery. I've just recently purchased a Nikon D200 and a Metz 45 CL-4 digital Flash Gun to go with it. I wondered if you have any experience of this type of flash and camera David , and could give me any tips, books or web pages for getting the best out of this set up.
I've always been interested in photography but have had a Minolta X-700 for years and it was time to up grade to a better camera and a digital set up. After 30 years doing design in the leather industry our factory will be shuting later in the year, so I'll become redundant. I've therefore decided to get a part time job and also set up doing photography and photographic restoration. Hopefully contributing to my income and eventually having a stand alone business. So any help I can get about using the metz with my D200 would be gratefully accepted.
Keep shooting great pictures and good luck to you and the family.

Cheers John ( North of England UK )

David I'm not a member of the forum only an observer. You have shown fantastic skills in explaining the working of the D70 which I have had since Jan of 05. I would like to say that I have gleaned a large amount of knowledge from your website compulations you posted.Also your pictures are outstanding and beautiful. I'm 80 yrs of age but am trying to grasp this new mediam of Digital. Taken film pictures for many years but this is a different situation. Blessing to you and your family (I saw those Christmas pix also.

This is a really nice page of links. Thank you for taking the time to create it. I am impressed with what other people are doing with their D70s. I just took mine to the SE Utah desert and found lots to look at. What really impressed me was how well the camera held up under very difficult (backpacking in the rain for 4 days) conditions. The pictures are here.

I’ve been to all over places in Malaysia. Definitely, it is quite wonderful time to have a vacation in Malaysia. But the only problem is about the hotel-bed in Malaysia which is QUITE BAD and do not fit to the standard quality of international requirement. Malaysian beds are VERY FIRM AND HARD (e.g DON’T HAVE SPRING-DIVAN or BOX-SPRING) like in the US and Europe. That's why SOME people from US/EUROPE/AUSTRALIA and some other part in the world, to some extent feel discourage and do not enjoy coming to Malaysia compared to Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia (which offer plush-soft-springy comfort bed). For your kind info, Most of American, European, and Australian love springy, soft & bouncy spring-bed rather than firm and hard bed which lack of resiliency and softness.

David, I too have just traded my Coolpix 4300 for a 5400 and, like you, was awed by the complexity. However, several 100 shots later I am becoming less intimidated. My sea, beach and misc outdoor shots have been better than my 4300 in colour and sharpness (the sunset mode is really good). I am now experimenting with BW and closer shots of my family and anything else that stays still long enough. I am only having problems with the P setting when I take photos of children - flash remains off but the resulting photos are blurry if the child or baby moves. Any tips?

I love your blog. Heather

David, I truly am awed by your way of seeing. Very good pictures, especially the macro stuff and scenics. Many thinks -- Jefferson Linck
Guest 04-May-2004 19:33

I have enjoyed your pictures immensely as well as your comments in dpreview. Also I wanted to thank you for all your hard work on the D70 techniques and care pages. I constantly find myself refering to them to answer questions that arise as I continue to use this camera. I tried once to thank you in dpreview but the threads just move too fast.

Please keep up the good work.

Hi David,
I love the shots you've posted in your galleries. I am a Malaysian (PJ boy) who's somehow spent a few more years in the States than he initially planned to. It's nice to see pictures of home and get nostalgic. On the photography front, I've just put in an order for the D70, even though a lot of naysayers have condemned its performance in certain measures. I've had a Minolta Dimage 7i for over a year and a half now, but its slow autofocus and poor low-light performance have been crippling. It'll be nice to feel an SLR body in my hands again. Hopefully, I'll be able to improve my photography and consistently take good photos. How long have you been into photography? Which part of Malaysia are you from? Please write if you have the time. Till then, take care.

I have to must say...your albums bring back alot of warm memories as my wife and I took a very similar trip for our honeymoon.

While in Thailand we visited Pattaya and Bangkok. Then off to Malaysia where we stayed at a resort in Langkawi before stopping for a couple of days in Kuala Lumpar. The Twin Towers shot was familiar as we stayed at the Mandarin Oriental right beside there.

Might even venture back to Thailand later this year as it's almost a second home for my wife. Beautiful temples, great landscapes and amazing seafood. :)

Amazing trip, wish I had the talent to capture it on film as well as you did.
