Hit me with your best shot
Had a great Saturday out to Batam with the guys for a session of wakeboarding. Actually I just tagged along for the chance to soak in the sun and drink duty free alcohol. The journey there was not too bad, Long from Batam Cable ski Park got everything arranged for us few days before after getting some passport details.
The guys were off the moment we got there. I hooked up my iPod to the sound system, and the boarders had some funky tracks to groove to while waiting for their turn. I spent some time taking some photos using their cameras. It got me itching to get a faster camera for all the tricks that the boarders were getting into.
Alas, somewhere between the ferry terminal and the ski park, my camera must've fallen out of the bag. I was still hopeful that I had left it home, whilst switching bags over. Looked this morning and confirmed that I had indeed lost my 2nd camera.
Now am looking at a few prosumer models from Canon and Nikon. Have to start saving up for one, or maybe look into getting a 2nd hand model. So at the moment I only have the K800i to use for daily snaps, which does the job well enough if the shot is not too demanding la.
