TESTING TESTING!!

It's feeding time!!! This was what I managed to capture the moment I put my new camera into the water.
1

Everyone around me seems to be upgrading their camera to DSLR whereas I am still fumbling with the functions of my point-and-shoot camera. I have no intention to replace my camera as it was only a year old and functioning well, so there are no excuses for me to change it at all although I have been eyeing on one for the past couple of weeks. The camera that captured my eyes is the latest model; Olympus µ[mju:] 850 SW which is waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof. It comes in 4 vibrant colours too; shocking pink, bright yellow, sweet baby blue and cool black. For those who know me well, am sure you will know which colour I would like, right? Since we were at Pavillion last Saturday, I knew it was the best chance for me to try out my camera underwater.

It was my second visits to Foot Spa, the first time was pretty unbearable as it took me a long time to get over nibbling fishes. This time round, I was too busy with my camera, hence I don't feel a thing at all.

A photo of my curious-looking neighbour's feet.

This was taken with flash!

Lastly, a photo of my lionhead. If not mistaken, this is Tai Kam (Big Gold).

So I guess now is the time to arrange for a snorkeling trip!!! Hooray!!!

barbie said...

Oooh, your goldfish is sooooo cute. Reminds me of mine, a long time ago. *Sniff* As for the foot spa, eeks, u mean they can bite till u bleed? If like that I don't think I want to try now. *shudders* Cool camera, btw.

sc said...

i've been using olympus mju too, but am not too happy with mine. it's 2 year old but i've got quite a lot of problem with it. though mine is also waterproof, i didnt dare to take underwater pixs..

Terri @ A Daily Obsession said...

those r piranhas! but seriously i would love to try the fish spa. i would love it even more if they have a mix of turtles n other stuff :)

a feast, everyday said...

excellent underwater shots! neat camera. something a dslr can't do- tt is to get wet.

mimi said...

Seem like the fishes that u captured are bigger fish...look a bit scary :(

Precious Pea said...

daphne: Actually it was quite fun and i love it. Wish it could be body spa instead of just foot.

melissa: Very itchy at the beginning cos the fish kept nibbling but after a while it's quite ok. Like minor electric shock.

nattashea: Cool. Will drop by your blog in a short while. :)

barbie: Cute hor? I just love lion head. This morning i discovered the first death, Mei Hung passed away :( Actually no la...my hubby's leg got lots of scratch marks so the fish kept attacking the spots till it bleeds.

sc: Aikkss..issit? Hmm..so far mine is ok. I thought it would be better to try it out underwater so that if anything, still under warranty ma.

terri: TURTLE? Aikss..no way am putting my feet in. Hahaha!

a feast everyday: Hehehe..thanks. Love my camera...now i have to check out if it's really freezeproof.

mimi: Actually they are much smaller in sizes, just happened that the feature i chose was meant for macro shots.

kampungboycitygal said...

envy envy..what a cool camera..i'll never go for that fish spa!! was afraid of the nibling of fishes

ling239 said...

cool pictures...
one question though...
for the first pic, do u have to put ur head into the water as well ? to view before the pic being taken ? :p

so the fish really bites and hurts ah... >.<"

Precious Pea said...

kampungboycitygal: Thank you! Am very happy with my new toy. Eh, do try the fish spa...quite fun actually.

ling239: How i wish i can put my head in but sadly, strictly not allowed. I just put in my came and started snapping away. Took quite a number of shots while playing around with the function like flash, no flash, micro, zoom, antishake, etc...No la..no pain at all....only geli.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

eh i thought cant put hand under water let alone a camera!! hahaha..

shit how in the world got blood 1?? maybe bcoz my skin thick la..kekeke..

~Christine~Leng said...

New camera! water proof some more! Good for you :)
Er.. I was a lil' afraid now to try out the fish spa.. They attack people!!! ;P

J2Kfm said...

hehe, I think I better upgrade, or rather, BUY a camera instead of relying on my phone to take photos. failed in dark conditions, and i doubt it can even function underwater. =P
they BITE til bleed? hmm, pretty savage little beasts aren't they?

Hazza said...

Those fishes with fins spiked up looks so scary. Are they tilapias? Great to see some underwater pics for the first time. However this has put me off ever wanting to try this spa! It gives me images of a piranha attack!

christine said...

i've been using my olympus too..but havent been really satisfy with it..haha..the fish sounds so ticklish..but i think at least should give it a shot huh..

wmw said...

First photo look like a school of piranhas!!!! Some more can bite till bleed, aiks!

ai wei said...

i like the 1st pic. those fish looks cute with big big eyes. and that pic look a little illustrated. hehe~ nice one but fish spa is not something for me... feeling geli ler (though i hv not tried it out)

barbie said...

Oh no, sorry to hear about ur fish. Yeah, lionheads are lovely but they're also very prone to diseases, so takes a lot of close attention to make sure u catch them fast if they fall sick. Hmm, if like that maybe I will try the fish spa after all. ;)

jason said...

Oh, cute gold fishie. It looks better when u use the flash though.

durianberry said...

Wow neat camera! Just saw the review in the NTV7 breakfast show this morning. No more top view of fishies :) I bet it's just ticklish sensation but I can't help thinking they look like piranhas

yammylicious said...

bleeeeeeeeeeeeding!! yer.... ur cam is cool!! the fish look bigge the wad i saw from outside!

Precious Pea said...

yammylicious: Actually they are tiny, dunno why they turn out big in my photos.

durianberry: Ooo?? How was the review? Actually I didn't check whether it is good or not but bought it cos it's cool and stylish and can go underwater.

jason: Now you know why I love to flash hor? ;)

barbie: So far my fishes look pretty healthy and happy from the way they wag their butterfly tail. They love food...so me! Haha!

ai wei: Must try...i love the spa lor. But pricey la...cannot afford so often.

wmw: Aiyah..hubby's leg full of scars and they tot it was dead skin ma. SO mai attack lor! Haha!

christine: Yes, do try. First few minutes geli after that quite nice.

hazza: If not mistaken, those fishes are imported. There is one spa place in PJ where you can go for whole body spa. Would love to try that..i will sure jump up and down. Splish Splash!

j2kfm: I know what you mean, you need good sunlight in order to get good pic with camera phone.

christine leng: Actually, your money will be wasted if they don't come attack you. This is a case, the more, the better.

NJoe: I didn't put hand in ma..i put camera in only ma. Hehe..actually now you mention it, yes hor..cannot dip hand inside. Oppss!!

mama bok said...

Wow..! must be painful for the hubby eh..??

Jackson said...

gosh...the fish attack??

Precious Pea said...

mamabok: Nah...he said no pain.

jackson: Hubby's meat too sweet.
