FujiFilm Finepix F50FD - My Favorite :-)

The polling for the most favorite camera brand among my viewers (although not many voted :C ) has ended a few days ago, and the winner this time is Olympus brand.

Olympus is one of the leading manufacturer of digital camera with a range of compact digital camera. Olympus is not my favorite brand, because I find the lens is not as good as other brand. After maybe 5-8 years, the lens tend to be out-of-focus and blurry. Other than that, its still good brand and according to expert, it can shoot beautiful pictures too.

Eventhough Olympus wins in this polling, but I'd love to introduce to you all my favorite digital camera: FujiFilm F50FD.

Pls ignore the floral sticker...hmm.. I've just recently remove it (it makes my camera look cheap ;p)

Eversince I got my new camera, FujiFilm has been my favorite brand. I love the pictures it captures, so clear and sharp and the color so brilliant. I've surveyed for a few weeks for digital camera, I even surf on the internet for camera brand review. And I found out that FujiFilm is one of the top brand in digital camera. I compare a few camera brands at the camera shop, from Canon, Nikon, Olympus and FujiFilm. Each with their own uniqueness and special feature. But when I compare the price and the specification of each camera, FujiFilm won my heart and my pocket (err..not mine exactly :p).
As the review says about my FujiFilm Finepix F50FD, it offers a super-compact digital camera that takes beautiful shots with the most advanced features and technology available.
The specification include: face detection (optimize focus and brightness), 12MP super CCD technology (enable you to crop and enlarge part of your picture without loss of quality), image stabilization (prevent blurry image), high performance function (very convenient function allows you to shoot and playback easily, it also has various shooting mode - love this function). FujiFilm F50FD has a very stylish and sleek design that offers various attractive features. It also has a large, high resolution display with 2.7" LCD it is also perfect to display the new, intuitive menu system. I've captured a lot of beautiful pictures with my digital camera and it never disappoint me. Love this camera a lot ;-)

Bling-bling for your handphone, anyone???

Here's another email I got. It's the trendy decor for Japanese handphone. I think it applies to Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China. It's too girlish for my liking. And very messy, it might get entangle with earrings. Nope, just not me. Looks like a toy.

Is your Nokia phone original?

I didn't know that from the serial number of the phone they can actually tell you your handphone quality. But recently I got this e-mail about how to check your Nokia hanphone through the serial number.
Press the following on your mobile *#06# and the-international mobile equipment identity number appears. Then check the 7th and 8th numbers:







7 th

8 th








Phone serial no.
















IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are
02 or 20
this means your cell phone was assembled in Emirates or China which is very Bad quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are
08 or 80 this means your cell phone was manufactured in Germany which is fair quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are
01 or 10 this means your cell phone was manufacture Finland which is very Good

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are
this means your cell phone was manufactured in original factory which is the best Mobile Quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are
13 this means your cell phone was assembled in Azerbaijan which is very Bad quality and also dangerous for your health

Not sure whether the information is reliable or not, but I tried on my Nokia handphone, the oldest model assembled in Germany, the Nokia 3100 is manufactured in original factory whereas my latest phone I just got a few weeks ago is assembled in China. Hopefully it is not as bad as they say it is, I dunno, I'm slowly losing trust in China brand. There's an awful good reason why I feel that way, because of the recent going-ons in China's market, my unit trust has drop significantly, from 0.25sen per unit, now to 0.13sen per unit. I should've take it out when it started to drop to 0.23 back then, thats the price for being greedy.

And the FAVORITE brand goes to...

The vote which ended 2 days ago comes out with the verdict as below:
  1. Nokia 50%
  2. SonyEricssons 43%
  3. Motorola 1%
This is of course only represent 16 visitors to my site who voted.

Personally, I'd prefer Nokia brand because of it easy to navigate menu, durability, reliability and functionality. Why I says it's durable and reliable, because I've used 4 Nokia model and all of them never disappoint me. My second Nokia handphone, I've been using it since 2003 until now, it is still functioning except for the weak battery. But the battery is due to the fact that I've never replace it ever since. Nokia is also suitable for people who enjoyed playing games, since some of the model they produce is targeted at people who likes to play game. Although I must admit that the camera function is not as good as SonyEricssons.

SonyEricssons handphone has been known to produce good quality output, as we all know Sony itself is a manufacturer of camera, hence the camera function for SonyEricssons is unbeatable. As for Motorola brand, well, I can't say much about this brand as I've never used it, but some of my friend use it, still it is not a sought after brand among people here. And I'm not particulary interested in Motorola because of its design.

Another handphone brand is Samsung, which is equally good but also not so favorable, but I must say that Samsung always produce slim handphone and the camera quality is also not bad.

Nowadays, handphone have many features, some even has antivirus software available for it, this is due to the wireless and bluetooth function that sometimes enable other people to send virus or spam to your mobile.

But in the end, it all comes down to your budget and your needs. So makesure you get a handphone that's worth the price.
