    Kaufik, well I think it is really a 3.5, it’s better than Fair but little under Good. It doesn’t have that pop! The crab is little to hard to see. The whole picture is little dark. This would be a great picture if you had a slave strobe behind the whole thing. I used to carry a little one but have been lazy last few years. You know how good the girls look when the light comes threw their hair. Same effect. The picture as a whole is laid out fantastic. IMHO :-)

    agree with Carl! the crab is a little hard to see, but i like its eyes! ‘kinclong’ bow :) hehehehe and the size of the pic is a bit ‘gepeng’ for me. IMHO fik.. IMHO!

    pic nya agak remang2 apakah pencahayaan kurang merata?? demikian juga dengan rejeki kita kurang merata :D (duuuh, gw kok udh mulai ikut2an hengky ya??)

    Actually at night at home and with a different computer than work this picture is a lot better. Proof that a lot depends on your computer video card and or monitor….

    Thanks Yuji…..

    I have tried over than 100 shoot to make
    macro shoot as SHARP as DSLR….
    I have tried using close up lens, macro lens,
    magnifying glass….
    I have tried using Photo Shop sharpen…

    But still….

    Pocket Cam is a Pocket cam….. :)


    THANKS for your comment…

    Not the camera, it’s always in the flash..or light

    I have tried using DS125 with flexible arm.

    Last trip, I tried nikon D200 + 105mm + DS 125
    to shoot a porcelin crab…
    and compare to my pocket cam + DS 125, with the same object and condition….

    The result… especially the sharpness…

    Heaven and Hell….

    ha ha ha :D :D

    I don’t agree on your comment about macro shot, if you know the limitation of your camera, you can get sharp macro even using point and shoot camera …

    DSLR with macro lens, for sure, potentially will result in better photos, but point and shoot has its advantages especially for low angle due to its size can be easily positioned rather than DSLR.

    I agree with Carl, flash might help a lot …

  11. Kaufik Anril says:

    both of them has pros & cons…
    Macro with pocket cam surely can give some excellent results,
    but however, the sharpness cannot compare to DSLR.

  12. Erwin Kodiat says:

    Of course, if both DSLR & point and shoot were perfectly utilized :D

    problem with P&S camera is you need to get really close so it will be tougher to get good lighting but I love P&S portability.

    Does anyone know…
    is there any category discrimination in underwater photo contest with the photo taken with DSLR and pocket camera ?
