It has been awhile since I bought my Canon EOS 40D. And truth to be told, I’m happy with it even though there are many other better DSLR cameras in the market now. Furthermore, I’ve invested quite alot recklessly on lenses and accessories throughout the ownership period.

Though the ISO performance of Canon EOS 40D is acceptable, I find it hard to shoot in low light condition. At ISO 3200, the shutter speed is considerably slow and more importantly, it produces visible noise. So, which much consideration and all, I’ve bought Canon Speedlite 580EX II to accompany my Canon EOS 40D so it won’t feel bored which makes low light shooting a lot easier.

Well, I bet that you all should know the specifications and the usability by now, so I won’t list them here.

This should will be my last purchase before my next spending spree (which is not going to happen anytime soon judging on current economic situation). Besides, I’ve got to fill up my wounded ‘reservoir’. Blerrghh…

On the side note, why can’t Canon have built-in wireless transmitter in their DSLR line?! !@#$

p.s.: Somehow, the rule of thirds doesn’t apply well on white background. Hence, I’m forced to put the borders around the pictures.

p.p.s.: 2 days after purchasing this, there is rumour that Canon is coming up with Speedlite 700 EX. WTF?!

p.p.p.s.: I managed to grab hold of PDF version (scanned) of Canon Speedlite 580EX II user manual. Feel free to ask if you want a copy.

With almost 95% of photos in this blog taken by my Canon EOS 40D, it (my camera) rarely gets its chance of being featured or being photographed by other cameras. So, after a long thought and since I’m dead bored, I shall dedicate this post to my current camera.
