Rumours of Nikon D400 a possible replacement of the D300S has risen again

Dear Readers,

It’s been awhile since my last look up about the all new D400 a supposedly to be the next replacement for D300s. in Nikonian are more and more looking forward to search for any information about the D400, like myself I am so looking forward to upgrade my current D90 to D300s, since the news about D400 has surface since last year, now I am so looking forward and can’t wait to get myself a good treat with the Nikon D400...

After the last lookup, it seems like the new Nikon D400 will not going to a reality just yet for this year 2012. Nikon has already released 3 version of their latest masterpiece, the D800 and D800E a replacement for the Nikon D700, and D4 which is the replacement for the Nikon D3s. To know more about the latest review about Nikon D800/D800E since its successful launch go to D800/D800E latest review.

Back to my D400 rumor, which has recently resurface, this rumors has just come out from TechRadar by Amy Davies, mentioned that the replacement for the long overdue D300s might either be D400 or my even be a full frame dubbed the D500/D600 as the new replacement for D300s. 

Though the rumor for D400 is very much becoming a reality but according to Amy resource the new D400 is still very much in the developing stage. Which will be include a 24.2mill pixel DX format (APS-C) sensor which is similar to the one found in D3200 a Nikon latest introduction to its entry-level product line.


Other rumors about the new replacement for Nikon D300s, 
1) Image Processor: Expeed 3 image sensor 
2) Body: Full Magnesium Alloy with 100% weatherproofed body
3) Memory: 2 memory slots which supports CF and SD memory card

These are some of the key features that we might be able to see in the latest version of Nikon D300s replacement. 

Nikon has already released three DSLRs in 2012, and seems determined to push on with plans to make this year very much a Nikon year - perhaps we will be treated to a complete line-up refresh by the time Photokina comes around in September, more from Amy Davies.

Till then..come on Nikon lets put all these D400 rumours into a reality. let your LOYAL Nikonian wait no more...Will update any news about D400 from time to time..

Happy Waiting...

Anyway looks like this new IOS 6 we'll see quite a number of changes and upgrades, in term of communication between APPLE devices will be much smoother.

So What should we expect from this new IOS 6, let us all check out the features.

APPLE will replace Google MAP with their very own MAP application, and it is said to be even better.According to APPLE, their MAP feature are Beautifully designed from the ground up (and the sky down), Maps will change the way you see the world.1 Map elements are vector based, so graphics and text are incredibly detailed — even when you zoom all the way in — and panning is smooth. Tilt and rotate to view an area, and Maps keeps the names of streets and places where they belong. Get visual and spoken turn-by-turn navigation and real-time traffic updates. Even soar over cityscapes to see the sights from the air in amazing, high-resolution quality.

Facebook. Integrated throughout iOS. You’ll definitley Like it.

In previous version of the APPLE IOS, Social Networking such as Facebook is not part of the iPad, iPod application. in order to use Facebook and Tweeter you need to installed it into your Apple device before you can use it.

Shared Photo Streams. Share select photos with a select audience. 

APPLE has also make photo sharing even more easy and flexible, Now with the new IOS 6, photo sharing will be more selective, by choosing what photos to share and who you want to share it. making photo sharing even more secure and personal. All you have to do is simply select photos from the Photos app, tap the Share button, choose who you want to share your photos with, and they’re on their way. Friends using iCloud on an iOS 6 device or a Mac running Mountain Lion get the photos delivered immediately in the Photos app or iPhoto.3 You can even view shared photo streams on Apple TV. If the folks you're sharing with aren’t using an Apple device, they can view your photos on the web. People can like individual photos and make comments. And you can share as much as you want: Your shared photo streams don’t count against your iCloud storage, and they work over Wi-Fi and cellular networks.

PassBook. Just the ticket. And the boarding pass, card, and coupon.

Your boarding passes, movie tickets, retail coupons, loyalty cards, and more are now all in one place. With Passbook, you can scan your iPhone or iPod touch to check in for a flight, get into a movie, and redeem a coupon. You can also see when your coupons expire, where your concert seats are, and the balance left on that all-important coffee bar card. Wake your iPhone or iPod touch, and passes appear on your Lock screen at the appropriate time and place — like when you reach the airport or walk into the store to redeem your gift card or coupon. And if your gate changes after you’ve checked in for your flight, Passbook will even alert you to make sure you’re not relaxing in the wrong terminal.

That means you can use FaceTime wherever you are, on any device. And never miss another wink, smile, air kiss, or eye roll.

Phone. Send to voicemail. Reply with message. Remind me later. It’s your call.

To all Apple iPhone users, IOS 6 will allow you to send a text message to your caller and informed them that you are unable to answer their calls at the moment and it even sends you a reminder to inform or remind you to return the call that you hace just decline to answer a few moments ago.

When you really want to see the whole picture, turn your iPhone or iPod touch to landscape and tap the full-screen icon to view web pages without distractions.

Accessibility. iOS 6 comes with Guided Access.

iOS 6 comes with even more features to make it easier for people with vision, hearing, learning, and mobility disabilities to get the most from their iOS devices. Guided Access helps students with disabilities such as autism remain on task and focused on content. It allows a parent, teacher, or administrator to limit an iOS device to one app by disabling the Home button, as well as restrict touch input on certain areas of the screen. VoiceOver, the revolutionary screen reader for blind and low-vision users, is now integrated with Maps, AssistiveTouch, and Zoom. And Apple is working with top manufacturers to introduce Made for iPhone hearing aids that will deliver a power-efficient, high-quality digital audio experience.

Find My iPhone. Stay on the trail of your iPhone.

It happens always that we forgot where have we leave our iPhone. You misplace your iPhone or your iPad or your iPod touch. Luckily, iOS 6 and iCloud now offer Lost mode, making it even easier to use Find My iPhone to locate and protect a missing device.8 Immediately lock your missing iPhone with a four-digit passcode and send it a message displaying a contact number. That way a good Samaritan can call you from your Lock screen without accessing the rest of the information on your iPhone. And while in Lost mode, your device will keep track of where it’s been and report back to you any time you check in with the Find My iPhone app.


Find My Friends. Good friends aren’t hard to find.

Find My Friends is a great way to share locations with friends and family. Those who share their locations with you appear on a map so you can quickly see where they are and what they’re up to. And with iOS 6, you can get location-based alerts — like when your kids leave school or arrive home. Find My Friends can also notify others about your location, so you can stay connected or keep track of the ones you love.


Remodeled Stores

iOS 6 brings a new kind of shopping experience to the redesigned iTunes Store, App Store, and iBookstore. See the best of what’s new in music, movies, TV shows, apps, and books at the top of each store’s home page. Browse with a swipe of your finger and tap to learn more.

With iCloud, your preview history is always up to date on all your devices. So you can start shopping on your iPhone and continue on your iPad. And now you can buy your favorite music, apps, and more without leaving the app you’re in.

New Features for China

2012 The New Kawasaki ZZR 1400

Dear Readers,

Just for the Super bikers out there, This the Kawasaki ZZR 1400, it is said to be the fastest super bike on this part of the planet.

Kawasaki has made a lot of changes over the 2011 model. The engine’s efficiency has improved, so fuel consumption is down by 20 per cent, despite slightly shorter gearing.

The bodywork has sharper lines, which on the ZZR include better defined fins in the flanks that help dissipate heat away from the rider and passenger. The frame has been beefed up to improve handling, while stiffer springs and revised damping grace the suspension.
The bike now features Kawasaki’s class-leading predictive traction control, with two performance modes and one safety mode for slippery conditions, and a more sophisticated ABS braking system.

It is, of course, ferociously fast. Out on the Nardo ring it powered up to the edge of its 186mph speedo, a leather-clad Ash tucked behind the screen, without the long wait for the last few mph to accumulate that you might expect. (More details by Kevin Ash)

Kawasaki ZZR 1400 2012 Vs Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 2011

Kawasaki ZZR1400
Price/on sale: £11,499/now
Power/torque: 207bhp @ 10,000rpm/120lb ft @ 7,500rpm
Top speed: 186mph
Fuel tank/range: 4.8 gallons/ 200 miles
Verdict: The fastest motorcycle in the world, unequivocally, yet it's manageable, comfortable, reliable and practical. Could be a little thin on low rev torque, however

TAG HEUER ~ Introduction to The All New Microgirder 2000 Concept Watch

Dear Readers,

This is a great show by Tag Heuer, during their introduction of TAG HEUER MICROGIRDER 2000 series wrist watch. the Show is a masterpiece so as their latest edition of to their 2012 collection the MICROGIRDER 2000 Concept watch.. Hope you all enjoyed this show as much as I enjoyed and admired their creation and passion for Time...


The Calibre 11 ~ Microgirder 2000 (Tag Heuer 2012 collection)

The Mikrogirder has a different dial layout to the Mikrotimer, so let’s step through the sub-dials that you see above:
  • 12 o’clock Sub-Dial: This measures Seconds. Each marker represents 3 seconds, so the hand rotates once every 90 seconds
  • 3 o’clock sub-dial: This shows seconds plus 1/10th of a second – one complete revolution of this hand is equal to three seconds
  • The Flying central hand shows time in 1/100th, 1/ 1000th and 5/10,000th of  a second
To get the timed event you have to add together the 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock readings (giving you x.x seconds) and then add the reading from the flying hand. While its hard to see from the photo above, the flying hand in the photo shows 285 1/10,000th of a second…meaning that the dial above shows 0.0285 seconds (a theoretical example of course, given normal human reaction times).
The magic of the new regulator are three small metal beams, which you see below.
TAG Heuer further explains the role of these These beams- or girders as:
“working with a linear oscillator (as against the spiral shape of the classical movement) that vibrates isochronously at a very small angle, as opposed to a traditional watch, which vibrates at an angle of up to 320 degrees.”
This two-line description hardly does justice to the new regulator, but Calibre 11 has a “physics lesson” booked tomorrow with TAG Heuer’s Head of R&D Guy Semon, so hopefully we can bring you more detail soon.

Dear Readers,

Tag Heuer has never failed to impress its fans when it comes to Design,Style and Most of all Engineering Precision.

I have never owned a Tag Heuer, to have at least the simplest design Tag Heuer watch will definitely be a great idea. each time when I spend time with my wife shopping I would definitely take a peak in any store to have a quick look on the latest design from Tag Heuer and each of this latest design comes with a price tag. In Sabah (correct me if I am wrong) the cheapest Tag Heuer watch would be between the range of RM2000-RM3000. Imagine if I were to decide to have one of my own, yes one day I will have one of my favourite Tag Heuer wrist watch.

2012 Top 10 Wrist Watch Best for Sport Person

Dear Readers,

I am no sports person, but when it comes to wrist watch I really wanted to owned everyone that is available in the market. of cause only the best then again the best always comes with a price tag that is beyond my affordability.

In the old days watch is design to tell us the time of the day, it all started with a clock, then classic brilliant person thought why not I turn this clock small enough to fit in my pocket.

Do you know how the word clock came to exist? well according to wikipedia "The word clock is derived ultimately (via Dutch, Northern French, and Medieval Latin) from the Celtic words clagan and clocca meaning "bell"..

Earliest dated watch known from 1530 - Wikipedia
Again according to wikipedia "Watches evolved from portable spring-driven clocks, which first appeared in 15th century Europe. Watches weren't widely worn in pockets until the 17th century. One account says that the word "watch" came from the Old English word woecce which meant "watchman", because it was used by town watchmen to keep track of their shifts. Another says that the term came from 17th century sailors, who used the new mechanisms to time the length of their shipboard watches (duty shifts)."

Like I mentioned before in the olden days watch is design to tell us just time, it allow us to be punctual in our meetings, appointments, dating and many more.

As technology progresses into a more advance stage, watch not only tells us time, it also has many more add on feature to entice the younger generations.

Here are top 10 watches designed for athlete.

Timex SL Series T2M7586K

Function meets form in the Timex SL Series men’s sports watch. Punctuality is only one of the features this watch boasts. With luminescent hands, chronograph functionality and water resistance, this watch can assist in any of your next adventures. We especially love the stainless steel finish and the quality of the watch’s design – a signature of the Timex brand.

Victorinox Swiss Army Summit XLT 241338

Quality, functionality and features are the Victorinox Swiss Army Summit XLT's strongest traits. This chronograph has functions capable of tracking time, speed and distance. If you are training for a race, marking distance at sea or performing any similar activity, the XLT is sure to enhance your preparation.

Casio AMW320B-1AV
Not your average chronograph, the Casio AMW320B-1AV men's sports watch sets itself apart from the pack with both an analog and digital clock option. The digital chronograph seems to solve many of the problems you may have with a strictly analog watch; you don't need a separate night mode to read time in the dark, and you don't need three additional dials on the watch face to track split time or other dual increments. The AMW320B-1AV is also water resistant up to 100M. Casio provides fantastic help and support system for its products.

Luminox EVO Navy SEAL A.3051

The Luminox EVO Navy SEAL exemplifies the government organizations it caters to: it is durable, long lasting and always ready. Its design is intended to stand up over time, even in the worst conditions. We are especially impressed with the watch's light technology that ensures constant illumination for up to 25 years.
Seiko Sportura SNAE67

Seiko has been in the watch-making business for a long time. The company may have even been the first manufacturer of wristwatches with its release of the Laurel in 1913 in Japan. The company has come a long way since then with its Seiko Sportura SNAE67, a men's sports watch with all of the functionality you would need. Whether you're an athlete looking for a training watch or someone looking for an everyday watch, the functionality of the Sportura fits both worlds.
Bulova Accutron Kirkwood 65A100

We'll admit we were a little star struck by the Bulova Accutron Kirkwood's good looks, but when we looked closer, the included features also impressed us. This men's sports watch has more than a pretty face. It can resist water up to 200M, measure speed and distance with its rotating bezel and keep track of your best race times with its built-in chronograph.
T-RACE Gent 2010 T048.417.27.057.00

The Tissot T-RACE Gent 2010 is as sporty as men's sports watches get. Its sleek design and multi-functional features make it ideal for a casual athlete or someone training for a marathon. A built-in chronograph can help track your best times, a tachymeter bezel can measure your speed and distance, and the water resistance will protect the watch's internal mechanisms while you are swimming.
Invicta Pro Diver 8932

The Invicta Pro Diver men's sports watch is powered by the latest in quartz technology and has the best diver-specific features of any watch on our lineup. It doesn't have chronograph functionality or a very comprehensive warranty, but the features it does boast, outweighs those it lacks.
Timex Ironman T5K354HC

The Timex Ironman is a watch that every serious Ironman competitor should have. It can help with your training whether you're swimming, running or biking. After you're done training for the day, the watch is designed well enough to act as an out-on-the-town watch. We only wish Timex offered a better warranty and a more user-friendly instruction manual.
Citizen WR100 AT0810-12E

The Citizen WR100 men's sports watch is one of the best looking in our lineup of the top 10 products. We love the quality details like the leather watchband and the included five-year warranty. We're sure the solar-powered functionality works fantastically, but we're not entirely sold on the idea yet.
My pick of these many great watches will be the T-RACE Gent 2010 by TISSOT. I have always been a fan of TISSOT, I will really go and check out with this watch. Now I pick my personal choice, what is your choice?

Cars ARE GREENER in 2012

Dear Readers,

Every industry players is trying to go green, an effort to saved the world from environmental destruction as a result of our efforts grow all in the name of economic and industrial development. 

One of the steps taken is to produce green vehicle, ver the year researchers have been trying to miniaturise a technology that would fit in a small car and eventually this development will fit in a normal sedan car or even an SUV that would equally the speed of a normal car that runs on fossil fuel.

Do you know that the first electric cars began in europe? well according to the green car website "Between 1832 and 1839, the first crude electric carriage was invented and electric cars soon began to flourish in Europe due to the fact that they ran quieter and smoother than other cars."

Imagine if the development of electric car continues since it was first created, we would be drive a car that runs on electrical instead of petrol. The mass production of fossil fuel car that cost lower and speed capability is far more better than an electric car has made its development stopped for several decade until int the year 1973 when the fuel crisis began to emerge has spark interest in the development of alternative fuel. Basically the oil crisi has made electric car concept a new jump start, but the idea f an electric run car was never a serious concept to look in to. only in the early 1980s and 90s the idea of an electric cars started to get serious. 

And it all began in Switzerland where an unusual race to promote alternative fuel to run a car began in the Tour de Sol or famously known as Solar Car Race the anual race started in 1985 until 1995. Since then many car industry players has began to develop their own design concept of electric car. 

By the turn of the millenium, electric powered car or other alternative fuel powered concept cars has began to evolved steadily, the first fully commercialized passenger cars began with the birth of a hybrid vehicle a car that run part rechargeable energy storage system and a part fueled power source car and this has reduced the gap of realizing a full frame green car, and it is believed that green car is no longer a concept or a vision instead it is very much a present thing. In Malaysia the first ever hybrid car was introduced is the Toyota PRIUS made available in 2007 later the Hybrid version Lexus RX400h was produced as a larger version of Hybrid car. Honda later follow suit to introduced their very first Hybrid vehicle dubbed the Honda Civic Hybrid (correct me if I am wrong with this information). since then this 2 hybrid players is I believed the only hybrid car in Malaysia to date..

They year is 2012 there are more Hybrid cars coming up, not in Malaysia but every where around the world. so what are the cars will be or has already been available to all? Here are the list of cars to that I have gathered from a web site www.
