My Gadgets

Apple iPad

Truly a revolutionary device. Notebooks suddenly become obsolete. Great for note taking, reading magazines, browsing on the couch, viewing pictures, or just simply playing games.  Mine is 3G + Wifi 64 GB, capable for housing those plethora of great apps. Someday people will look back and remember that iPad started all of these.

iPhone 4S 32 GB – iPhone5 64 GB

iPhone 5 blackFinally I got this marvellous phone. Initially bought for my golf scoring app, I found out this little device is a multimedia computer in your pocket. It takes beautiful pictures, able to edit it on the fly, great gaming machine, serves as your iPod replacement, and a great smartphone-connectivity, battery, looks, ease-of-use. Everything. Now with iTunes available for Indonesia and allow you to buy Indonesian songs on it, it separates even greater distance with its competitors. Just upgraded mine to iPhone 5 for higher capacity and speed.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Note 8.0

Galaxy Note 80My first Android device, which I bought because of my stock broker app is not available in iOS. But I find out the S-Pen and S-Note is such a killer feature. It is now functioning as my primary note-taking in campus and work. I still think iPad edges out in overall simplicity and ease of use though, but Samsung has very serious different proposition on the table with it’s S-Pen + Note.

Nikon D7000

Nikon D7000Upgraded from D80, this camera has several additional features which I am looking for: high-speed continuous frame, better noise handling on higher ISOs and multiple user settings memory. Great DX camera.

Nikkor 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 VR

nikkor-18-200vr_1Very versatile Nikon lens ever! Capture most lens range you ever need. Wide angle and telephoto shots are in the house. Not to mention its Vibration Reduction technology.

Nikon 50 mm f/1.8

nikkor-50mmA cheapo. But big in performance. Very sharp, and its wide aperture makes a very good isolation in portrait shot. Best value lens in my opinion!

Tokina ATX-Pro/11-16 mm f.2.8

An excellent wide lens. Sharp and the build quality is outstanding and pro-like. The fixed aperture also comes handy when you’re shooting in available light.

 

Nikon SB-800 Flash

sb800Top-of-the-line Nikon flash. Big gun in terms of power (GN  38), and carries big features such as wireless lighting system, high speed sync mode and i-TTL balanced fill-flash control.

 

Fuji X-E2 and Fujinon X Lens 35 mm/f1.4 and 14mm/f2.8

Fuji XE2 35mmMy first venture to mirror-less/ILC camera. Dubbed as “poor man Leica” this camera’s result is anything but poor. Outstanding image quality due to excellent Fujinon X lenses. Retro classic body design is made from metal, enhances its build quality. Full of “DSR like” features, limit my D7000 use to very minimum.

Blackberry Bold 9700 (Onyx)

Rather archaic multimedia capability for today’s smartphone standard, but it’s still a beast for email and internet communication. Love the simple menu for simple phone tasks – SMS and Call, a task a modern smartphone may over complicate with.

Sony PSP

sony-pspGreat pocket game system. Big screen, comfortable game pads, and lots of great games. The instant on/off feature really helps for dedicated gamers without dedicated playing game time like me.

Apple iMac 21″

iMac 21My desktop PC at home, replaced the old and trusted HP Pavillion. Love the brilliant screen, and the zippy and powerful iOS for graphic and multimedia works. Now serve as multimedia center of my home, housing music, video and pictures.

Apple MacBook Pro 13″ Retina Display

Macbook ProI’m taking my Masters degree, hence I need a notebook for my degree works. Fell in love with this because of its gorgeous retina display. This redesigned Macbook pro with much compact and slim body proves to be a keeper.

Sony Playstation 3

An excellent gaming machine with lots of excellent exclusive games (God of War, Uncharted, Killzone, Gran Turismo). It’s Wi-Fi connection makes me easy to move it around the different TV sets at home. The blu-ray player is a significant differentiator to the XBOX 360 (eventhough I rarely use this. Too busy playing *grin*).  And of course, it’s much much more reliable than the Microsoft’s machine who is notorious for the red ring of death problem.

 

Orion Trekker Pro II

orion-trekker-iiFinally! The only gagdet I have without a needing for electricity. But this one houses them all (except the desktop PC of course). I bring it every day. The lower compartment for my photographic stuffs, while the upper compartment safely keep all of my gadgets with me. Lose it, and you can tell me that I will be crying for years! (*touchwood*)
