2007 Google Summer of Code T-Shirt & Cirtificate Arrived

We received 2007 Google summer of code T-Shirt. And again a big thanks to Google. The T-shirt was bit criticized by students this time, due to the white flowers on the black T-Shirt. I don't find this T-shirt particularly unappealing, but I found it too tight. What a shame I did not click on the size option on Google's web app correctly. At the end of GSoC I'm an unhappy dude without the cool T-shirt worn by all other GSoC participants and mentors.

Good Bye Sony T100, I'm switching to Canon 400D DSLR

Few months ago I bought my first digital point and shoot camera,a Sony T100. Sony T series has a good reputation for it's ultra slim body. Apart from being slim T100 was an awesome camera with 5x optical zooming and 8.1MPs. It usually gave very sharp pictures and it was pretty easy to operate even in the so called Program Auto Mode. How ever I soon found photography very interesting and felt the limitations of point and shoot cameras. I was worrying about its small image sensor which did not give any depth of field. And I worried about the speed of the camera also. So finally I decided to sell my T100 and switch to a Canon 400D DSLR which is an entry level DSLR.

Canon and Nikon are the best DSLR makers. I prefer Canon due to low price compared to Nikon D80. And it has new anti dust technology. I'll update when I receive the Canon 400D. By the way you can see the photos which I have taken from my Sony T100.
