Dinagyang 2009…IloIlo

Yeah! Im going. I booked my flight last year to get some good deals off the air fare and here it is now 26 hours to depart from Manila to Iloilo. Its been two years since I shot a provincial festival, that was in Sinulog 2007, Cebu. Im really curious on Dinagyang because some friends said, It is the best performance wise. Il be with some of my friends from PiPho Org on this trip and hopefully we can do some travelscape within our stay, I didnt prepared for an itinerary this time. Bahala na!

The opened bag right here is the Lowepro Rolling Computrekker Plus, it is one the biggest bag of Lowepro but i wont be using this huge bag instead I transferred almost all of my gears to my old Computrekker AW. Along with this Il bring my belt bag the Inverse 100 AW. Of course the 5D Mark II will be there, 40D, 70-200 f2.8 IS, 24-70 f.28, 17-40 f4 and 50 f1.4. Oh yes the LX3! Il be leaving the 100mm macro and some other accessories. Theres a bonus gear that il be bringing  and il pick it up at Canon office tomorrow. Its one of the fastest camera today. My shouldnt worry because il just borrow it 😀

Im really excited now and i already have some ideas in mind, composition, the videos and time lapse. Il be online every night to check out my online life PiPho, facebook, emails and this of course.

“Last Light” Video

This is the first time I witnessed a very inspiring sunset in Tagaytay Philippines
A time lapse capture that brings all the dramatic emotion of the cloud movements and the amazing warmth hues of this sunset.
I present you “Last light”

“1 minute drive” video

An hour drive time lapsed to “1 minute drive” on my way home. You’ll see EDSA and NLEX here in this video.

The video is composed of 1,046 still images of Canon EOS 5D Mark II @ iso 6400 mounted with EF 24-70 f 2.8 L lens @ 24 mm.

PiPho Org Post Xmas Partee! [The Video]

After a “few” drinks you get to sing the most beautiful songs on earth 😀 . A first attempt on recording docu videos (or whatever you call that) 😀

All with ambient dim lights only. The 5D Mark II high ISO’s reigns on both stills and video. I edited it in iMovie ’08

Panasonic Lumix DMC LX3 V1.20 Firmware now up

regie_fernando-8737I updated my LX3 today, before typing this entry. A little disappointing since the new FW only fixes “other” things. I was expecting a fix on the magenta cast plaguing the AWB white balance option but alas, wala. Im hoping someday they will hear our voice. For the time being it wouldnt hurt if you update yours so try yours and hit the here link below. Take precautions when making a FW update READ CAREFULLY the instructions provided.
