ICYMI: Canon's Newest DSLR, Mirrorless and Digital Cameras

Sunday, April 22, 2018

The thought of cameras makes my heart skip a beat because I'm a frustrated photographer. I've once dreamt of becoming a photojournalist for the school paper back in high school. However, things went the other way around because I didn't own a professional camera back then.

In college, I was able to borrow a Canon 50D from a friend and come up with my first ever photography portfolio. Since then, I was enamored with the vivid colors that a Canon camera can produce in an image. I also particularly love how affordable their lenses are compared to other camera brands.

Being a silent fan of Canon, I was ecstatic the moment I received an invite to a launch of their newest digital imaging products from DSLRs cameras, to mirrorless cameras, and compact digital cameras.

Like a kid in a candy store, I was in awe while staring at the display of Canon's lens collection. Aren't they nice to stare at? During the launch, we were allowed to give these lenses a try, but sadly, I don't have a Canon body with me. Duey of Unbox.ph, being a good friend, captured this photo of me instead with the Canon EF 300mm 2.8L IS USM II.

After bringing the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Lite to my different travel destinations, it's time to finally drop the verdict! Is this entry-level smartphone worth the investment for wanderers like me? Read on to know my impressions on the toned-down version of the battery king, the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max.


Worry-free wandering around Hong Kong with my phone

Sunday, March 18, 2018

I can't say that my last year's visit to Hong Kong was a splendid one because (1) I'm attending a conference which means I never got the chance to be in tourist mode, and (2) I experienced hiccups on my flight back to Manila.

That's why on my second trip to asia's world city,  I made it a point to make my visit as breezy as possible. I owe the chunk of my lightheartedness in the entirety of my latest travel to my latest smartphone: the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Lite


Unconsciously, I took the navigator role in my group during my group's full day in HK. I've only been to this country once and I was the "kaladkarin" companion back then. Which is why for this day, I heavily relied on my phone for directions and on-the-spot online research (ex. what good restaurants to eat, nearby tourist spot, and etc.)

First Japan Winter Experience: 11 Travel Essentials to not miss

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Just when I thought I researched thoroughly in preparation for the inevitable one-digit winter Japan weather, I still have to charge everything to experience and learn things along the way. Take the must-bring travel essentials for example, I know the things that I'll definitely be lugging with me. Yet, there are still stuff that I needed to get along the way to make the most out of my first ever trip to the land of the rising sun.

First of all, Accuweather said that the weather in Awaji Island during my stay is far more than the typical Baguio weather. I've never valued beanie, gloves, thick jackets, heattech, face mask, and boots this much in my life, tbh. 

My first mistake during this trip is that I relied heavily on my Nike Kaishi for the entirety of the trip. Only to realize that a single breeze can be the death of me because the shoes have holes to keep the feet ventilated. Haha All thanks to my big sister for lending me her extra pair of boots.
