Canon Picture Styles Updated!

According to Canon they have upgraded their popular picture styles….But where are the download links? Im confused?

From here

Picture Style files can b handled more easily with EOS DIGITAL software—“Digital Photo Professional” Version 3.0 and ”EOS Utility” Version 2.0. Different file types associated with different models have been integrated, simplifying file supervision and registration for photographers with multiple models.
Please visit Canon’s website for the latest software.(Digital Photo Professional Version 3.0 and EOS Utility Version 2.0 are scheduled for release in April 2007.)

ohhhh “release April 2007” bummer

Still or Video?

Im really itching for an ultra compact camera, interestingly Canon announced the Powershot TX-1  thats is a still camera and can also perform as a HD video camera! Oh yeah HDTV (1280×720 pixel, 30fps) movie . The camera has a 10x optical zoom thats hides into the small body of this baby. Interestingly it doesnt cost an arm & leg to own one. But the real question now is how does it perform? By its specs, the video capability can only record up to 13 mins of hi definition video on a 2gb SD card. It will hit the market this March! Lets just wait and see. 🙂

Majestic landscape of Baguio

Baguio is one my most photographed place in Luzon. It is also one my most visited place in the North. The City of Pines never cease to amaze me with its majectic views and misty sunrise. I woke up before dawn to be able to catch the magic hour. I went to Kenon road’s viewing  deck I set up my tripod, slip the camera and locked it.

At 5:30am the sun starts to bloom behind the mountains of Tuba, Benguet

On the far right of my view, it creates deep colors to the trees

The whole vista is like this.


 I love taking this type of early morning shots, it creates a soft & misty feel.

Ive added these photos at my Baguio gallery at

View from Kenon Road, Baguio City

 I woke up early to catch the misty sunrise in Baguio & captured the majestic view of Kenon Road. too bad that i didnt catch the Panagbenga parade because i was stuck in closed roads and traffic. It was a blessing in disguise because i was able to bond with my son, i lifted him and sat on my shoulder. I was very happy to spend those times with my son, wife and family, something i missed whenever when im with them and have a photo opportunity.

Panagbenga 2007

Flower Festival has already started, of course as a yearly ritual my family and I will have a trip to Baguio. Unfortunately  I will not be able to shoot the grand parade which will happen tomorrow, because we are leaving Manila late due to some errands. Anyway just to have a temporary gettoway we shall see what I can shoot there.
