Canon EOS 650D / Rebel T4i Review Preview. This is the latest addition to the Canon SLR range. It arrives as the update to the Canon EOS 600D, and is the first SLR on the market to feature a touch screen LCD and an all-new Hybrid CMOS sensor.
I expect the rush to sell and upgrade will make the very capable Canon 600D drop in price when it’s replacement comes to our shores.
Found and quoted from a pretty reliable source, japanese magazine (CAPA) seems to have posted specs for 2 Canon cameras (70D and 3D!) to be revealed very soon along with the other mirrorless models slated for also this year. I reckon we’ll know more on or after June 8, 2012 when the new Rebel is supposed to be launched.
Being a long time fan of the Ray-Ban Wayfarer (collecting several colors from here and abroad including the once rare white pair and the comparably rarified red one) I was thrilled to find out that more limited run, artistic driven colorways were coming out dubbed “Rare Prints” by Ray-Ban.
The one that really caught my eye were these “La Boca” print shades, which look like the side of painted houses in Caminito, Argentina. Upon further research and a few clicks later I learned that the pair that I had to have was expertly designed by a London design group La Boca. What an interesting coincidence.
As cool as the louder variants are, I opted for the more subdued yet when inspected closer give you a curious reaction choice rather than the flashy more quirky colorway. They also still look a little bit like tortoiseshell from afar which lend a classic feel, think John F. Kennedy, Mad Men, and a few picks from the Sartorialist. I highly recommend these to those who want a little color and detail without going overboard.
I don’t know why it looks like I’m praying here. Contemplating why I chose to stack accessories perhaps. Photo shot by Ash Castro.
The Blogger’s United Summer Bazaar was fun to say the least. Divine and I came pretty early to check on our stall and was very surprised by the reception. Aside from people coming up and saying hi which was really nice, our rack that was filled just a couple of hours ago was almost sold out. I guess everybody really was hungry for some fashion food and anything stylish they could get their hands on. Looking around, I was very tempted to buy a few things, but decided that I’d rather take pictures of all the creative and fascinating people that filled the Grand Events place to the brim.
Saw Carlos and caught up on each other’s recent developments, he seemed to be in a really good mood since almost all of his stuff had been sold already. Saw Robbie, who was kind enough to offer to switch cameras (both Canon SLRs) and take my picture in exchange for me taking his picture of course. The heat was getting a bit much in our area so I hung out by the airconditioners with Jake Galvez and Dale, then went back to sing (or pretend to sing) into one of the giant electric fans they had to cool down the place. Took some more pictures. Laureen arrived a little late, much to our envy since her tardiness afforded her a perspiration free ten minutes. Also spotted, Camille Co, David Guison, Vern Enciso, and Dani Barretto who were off to either ends dealing with their business.
Spoke to a few bloggers about style and whatnot, topics covered were
"Sheer volume of people"
"Trading sneakers in for laceups/hitops for boots"
"Big megapixel cameras"
"Ilan na benta mo?"
All in all a good selection covered, and stocked goods dispersed (including a once favorite parka of mine). This was a really fun Saturday and Bazaar, cannot wait for the next one. Oh, and before I forget. Thank you Canon Philippines for for printing on the spot a number of my shots taken at the event! Much appreciated!
*also took a couple of V Spotted shots, stay tuned!
What an amazing show! At first I was surprised that Kermit Tesoro was in the same roster as Albert Andrada, Ezra Santos, Bandoix Flores, and Butz Fuentes (all very renowned Filipino designers from Dubai) after all, he was the youngest of the lot. But once showtime came, my worry quickly disappeared. Clearly Kermit Tesoro was ready to compete at this level. He is definitely one of those designers that really push the envelope in terms of creating new methods and challenging preconceptions of what is doable and possible (and acceptable). His experimental flair and almost obsessive eye for detail has led to a cult following. Amongst his loyal clientele, is none other than Lady Gaga (and Divine Lee) the former of which wore one of his new chest pieces in Bangkok, Thailand.
Congratulations on great show Kermit, I’m sure many were inspired by your creations.
Fashion week was a blur to say the least, getting to this show to that show, making sure cameras, phones are charged, finding time to eat, and all the while trying to absorb all the audio and visual stimuli brought by the directors, designers, djs, and the great crowd that attended and appreciated the creative process realized as clothes and shows. Before the pile of pictures soon to come, here are a few quiet moments captured by yours truly.
