Kek Lok Si Trip

Yesterday night (Saturday), I went to Kek Lok Si in Penang with my uncle and cousins for some photography hunting. This time I really tried out my Lumix DMC FZ18 to see how good it is. I'm very happy with the result which really better than what I expected with this compact digital camera.

Buddha Statues

I really tried out all the mode included the manual mode, the noise very low with the ISO100, some of the pictures above were snap without using tripod, the Optical Image Stabilizer really give me a great hand on photography.

It was a great outing for photography hunting after left out for so long. I'm in Kuala Lumpur now until this coming Tuesday night, I'll going back to Penang on Wednesday early morning.
