Olmpus sp 600uz, My new Camera.

I always wanted an camera which just did't take a picture but took a masterpiece.

As i am a camera Fanatic, i always enjoyed holding and operating a Camera.

In recent times as i got some money, i wanted to fulfill my dream of owning a camera for my self. I just need not wanted to take a picture but i wanted a tool which can take pictures in a different perspective. What fun there will be taking each and every picture the same way as every one does?! it will be a just another picture thats all. But as i look at one object at a different way, hundred of new angles and ideas shoot across my mind, and to capture those "Stupid" Pictures i need a good camera.

Recently my cousin Shrinidhi Hande had visited a western country, I thought, Oho! what a great opportunity to get myself a camera from ABROAD :) so decided, and explained my intentions to Nidhi(Shrinidhi Hande), who obliged for my request and took his precious time and money which he used to get me a camera, (i still have not paid him!!!).

Nidhi decided to get me a camera at Duty Free shops in the Dubai International Airport, which seemed a reasonalble bargain for buying any goods as it is "DUTY FREE (Fee)"?. As he planned he enquired and gave me a list of cameras to buy from, he had only 2 hours of Transit time so had to hurry, as he texted me through Facebook Messages i was unable to comply as i was Asleep and was totally unaware.

Finally Nidhi bought me Olympus sp 600uz which seemed to match my discriptions of the camera i wanted.

Upon purchase nidhi messaged me, what he had bought for me, when i woke and saw those messages, i got up and plugged in my Photon+ and started browsing for the details of this camera.

As i got my hands on the camera, started exploring its features as a little kid who gets his first toy.

After handling the camera for couple of days, i got an idea about how to operate and take pictures, as i had taken about 600+ pictures within 35 hours!.

As i began to adapt for the camera i started noticing its Pro's & Con's, i have listed the same below.

1. 15x zoom which allowed me to take pictures perfectly became one of the biggest advantages. (Remeber i told you i like to take pics in a different manner, i took many pics of people wondering and not knowing i am Clicking away their pics which i found was amusing).

2. Sense of handling a Professional camera was also an feeling which is good, the camera had a grip of DSLR cameras which is good to hold.

3. Duel Image stabilizers were also good and easy, but had to punch in right features to use it.


1. Absense of view finder is a big disadvantage of this perticular camera.

2. Automatic flash was not an option, as i had to manually take out the flash and then use it, as it was a power saving feature of the camera.

I have mentioned only couple of pro's & Con's,which i noticed, as i have not used this camera till its peaking limit till yet.

But i enjoyed taking photographs in this camera as it is just right to my requirement.

Some of the pictures that i have taken are also available in this post.

Thats it for now, its Weekend Tomorrow!!! need to go.

Take care every one.

Few Stuff about Go Karting

Many would not know what a Go Karting is, and they might have seen it in movies and stuff.

Well me and some of my friends go for go karting sometimes, just wanted to share some of my experience with you guys.

Go Karting is an Motor sport which is a real fun to drive, as it contains speed in it it can also be a sheer dangerous sport also.

For the first timers it can be little frightning also as you try to control the vehicle, it always won't follow your command, & it is difficult to handle, as you don't know how the vehicle will react.

After getting to know the vehicle, it can be real enjoyable every lap, for the first timers, the track handlers always insist you to drive slowly, as they are certain that you will wipe out, and you do.

When i first drove, i felt i am gonna crash on every corner, so took few laps slow and tried not to crash, if i crash i would face real shame from my friends, and would have to leave the track as it is the rules of the game.

But after getting an edge you can drive these Karts, real fast and you can put the engines of these little cars to the best performing level, take the corner in real confidence. Too much confidence you can turn the Kart 360 with just a little more acceleration.

To drive these karts can give you an real adrenalin rush, and can be addictive.

The Karts are designed to get low drag, and are equipped with engines which can churn out so much torque that just hitting the gas for the first time can make you loose control. So advised to take it slow for the first time.

As you get professional with the sport you can turn the corners swiftly, with higher speeds, But you must also keep an eye on the track ahead and your competitors, as they can approach you with every angle possible in the track.

Trick is to finish the lap with best time, ahead of your competition.

Before getting into an Kart you must always have basic knowledge of the safety gear provided and safety measures to be adapted for your safety in the tracks.

Gears required...
1. Fully covered Helmet with clear Visors.
2. Jackets
3. Gloves
4. Shoes

The karts are driven with highly charged Fuel for better performance, this is done only by professional drivers who are well trained and know these karts very well.

Myself and my friends have driven these karts for many years, and are fully aware of there pro's and con's and we often race together neck to neck to reach the finish line as fast as we could.

Thats how the sport is, thats how it is handled.

Caution: Auto sports is dangerous and should be executed with precaution and with necessary safety measures.
