Casio Exilim Pro

If there's anything I'd constantly tag along my travels, its my Casio Exilim Pro (they're not paying me for this, by the way; ) It was my first extravagant purchase last 2005- priced at around Php 21,000. I prayed it would be a wise purchase, since my hard-earned cash savings took a big hit.
Two years later, I confirmed that it was indeed worth every penny. I won't go over the technical mumbo-jumbo, but if you do want to check it out you can click here. I'm obviously an amateur since I never really studied photography, but nevertheless I remain a devotee. This compact camera offer manual controls- you can tweak ISO sensitivity, sharpness, saturation, and metering modes. Up to now, I still have not fully explored what it can do.
What amazes me the most is its durability. Picture this: I'm rapelling down a cave in Sagada, and my Casio gets slammed periodically in the rocks. Clunk! Clunk! Clunk! A few minutes later, I take pictures of the stalactite formations effortlessly. One time, I fell of a banca in Marabut. The cam was inside my backpack which was strapped to my back, as soon as I saw sand I hopped of the banca and.. splash! I was in waist-deep water and my backpack took a dive. Good thing the case I bought was water-resistant and though it was damp, my camera was still functioning. Up the mountains, down rivers, and every imaginable terrain- here's to two years of great photographs.
I've captured lots of moments, thanks to this baby (My Casio). And now I get to watch this baby (my nephew Gavin) grow up. Sagada
