As I mentioned in my previous post, me and the RedNinja team were invited by Canon Malaysia to speak at the recent DCIM show over at Midvalley. Grace, Jon and I had different slots throughout Saturday and Sunday. Here are some of the photos that we took of each other during the talk.
Jon started his talk and shared his photos and videos, which were absolutely amazing! Jon’s topic was on “Wedding Photography” and he also covered a bit about RedNinja.tv as well.
Some familiar faces in the crowd, Paul Kong and Ben Lim.
Jon gave out a number of cards as well which had his photos printed on. The participants were happy with them!
Kurt (a.k.a Orionmystery) who was speaking next also listened in on Jon’s talk.
I saw Visithra there as well.
As well as Nick Leong!
I have to thank Jon for taking these photos as well while I was speaking. My topic was on “Experience with EOS“. Now that isn’t really an easy task to talk about especially since I have only used the system for a little over a month and covered two weddings with it and two portrait shoots.
The magic mouse (my impulse buy on Friday) was very useful for me, I managed to use it to control my slides.
I returned back to Midvalley again on Sunday to provide support to Grace who also presented on “Wedding Photography“.
Alex was there as well to help out and support her.
Here is a shot of our schedule that was set up at the EOS Interactive Booth.
Overall I thought DCIM was great! Plenty of bargains (I ended up buying two Sandisk 16Gb CF cards at RM209 each at the Sandisk booth) and plenty of interesting talks and information as well as meeting new people and catching up with old friends.There were some other bargains there such as the WD Live TV was only selling for RM399 instead of the usual RM499 and their WD Essential 1TB hard disk was going for RM289. What a bargain!
Also I was finally given a live demo of how Drobo actually works, it does look impressive and it is definitely something that I would love to get but the prices here are very expensive at RM1699 for the most basic Drobo storage with no hard disks! Definitely a lot to pay but I guess you are paying for the technology as well as having a safe feeling that your photos are protected!
