I was slow to know about the latest D700 firmware update v1.02 that was released last month! It claims to fix quite a few bugs and even enable the camera to use GPS timing with the right accessories but the most important update to me would be the improved Auto White Balance. The D700 is a marvellous camera except for the Auto White Balance that could be improved, and I am hoping this latest update would leave me a very happy man indeed. I loaded that latest firmware update today and initial casual testing reveals that the overly yellowish cast sometimes seen in AWB is much reduced! When time permits, its time for me to do some test runs! Prepare for Glory! Ok ok, I am getting overly besides myself now, till the next post, happy photo shooting!

Today is the first day of the Lunar New Year, and I wish everyone a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous Year of the Tiger! Strangely that reminds me of the character "King" that I play in the arcade game Tekken. The character in the game is a Mexican Professional Wrestler who dons a Jaguar Mask by default. Maybe I would be able to play the character better this year? Haha! Anyway I recently went for a walk in chinatown to soak in the festive atmosphere, and its a refreshing change from the daily routine of my day job. I decided to share some of my casual pictures of chinatown from dusk to dawn, with my trusty Tamron 17-35mm F2.8-4.
To Be Continued with Dusk...
My plate of "Hokkien Mee" for dinner before I continue with the evening shoot.
