My New Camera

New Year, New Camera, same eyes

Nothing change, I'm still the amateur photographer (if I might refer myself as photographer)
I don't think expensive camera would help me, or actually I thought it would be such a waste to buy a mighty and smart camera.
so I choose a Yashica EZ- W501
why? because it fits my budget, I did ask the seller, the cheapest digital camera (with Li-ion battery)
it's cheap (read: not that cheap) for a 14 MP and dependable enough.

And I didn't really know what it could do, cause I just need the macro mode for my amigurumi.
There are actually about 14 modes, but for now my favorite modes are the program mode, lomo mode, and auction mode.

the chili tree
using program mode (only red items shown in colors)

the broken lock
using the same program mode

the broken lock
using Lomo Mode

well you could easily do this with photoshop, but for me photoshop is never easy.
of course the "lomo mode" might not as good as the real lomo picture, but I think it's really good for an instant dramatic effect.
I highly recommend this camera for another photoshop dummy like me (please tell me, I'm not the only photoshop dummy in the world)

there are also other interesting modes, like fisheye mode, but I haven't use it.  I tell you more about the auction mode and the other modes next time.
