A friend of mine gave me a 5 minutes test-out on the NEW Nikkor 50mm f1.8G AF-S. Instantly I fell in love with it!
The AF speed is really fast even in low light situations and images are very sharp when shooting wide open. It comes with a metal mounting but the lens is fully plastic. This lens uses the usual lens hood (twist and clip? snap on?) compared to the Nikkor 50mm 1.8D screw-in type. Now all D40, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000, and D5100 (or other models that has no motor) users do not need to stress their eye balls trying to focus because this lens comes with a built-in motor 😀

I was told that they might Launch it in June 2011. Price? not confirmed. 🙂

Out of curiousity, I bought the Polaroid PoGo from ebay 2 months ago. I’ve always wanted to do a review on this pocket printer but do not have the time to do so. Today I finally am doing it so I’ll make this review nice and short.

Polaroid PoGo is actually a wireless mobile photo printer. Using the ZINK (Zero Ink) technology, you don’t have to worry about getting the ink or spilling it in your pocket or in your bag. No Installation or what so ever, all you need is to turn the PoGo on and send the picture from your phone using bluetooth or plug it straight to your camera. As simple as that.


The PoGo is very small and light. You can put it in your handbag, or pocket to be carried around. It is easy to use and the ZINK paper can be bought in Ebay for a very resonable price. Not to forget, after the pictures are printed, you can tear off the back part of the ZINK paper and it becomes a sticker.


Although this PoGo could be carried around, the batteries doesn’t seem to last very long. I could charge this thing for hours and the battery dies in 5-10 minutes without charger on. No Joke. So the only way I can use it is by charging it while printing. The pictures printed are also very disappointing. Not as sharp, sometimes pixelated depending on the details of your photos, and the colour’s usually off. Sending picutres using bluetooth sounds easy, but keep in mind that it only works if you send it from your phone. I tried many times to send it through laptops and it doesn’t work. Also, not all digital cameras can just plug and play, it will not work if your camera do not have PicBridge. Most of the newer models of camera has it but not all. Do check before you buy.

That is all for now from me. If you were to ask me, I’ll give it a 3 out of 10.
