Day 1 at TPS: While at the @SamyangUK stand, we also had a quick look at the recently announced AF 85mm f/1.4 FE for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras. This lens becomes the sixth autofocus lens for Sony from the brand and although we only spent a few minutes with it, the build quality seems to be excellent and it's fairly compact considering its fast maximum aperture. 👍📸
Earlier today, I was the M.C for Canon Africa's exclusive press screening of the movie "MOKALIK". The movie was produced by @kunleafo using Canon EOS C300 Mark 2 Camera, a camera specifically designed with filmmakers in mind.
Excited to have been a part of this, thank you to the @canoncnafrica team for the opportunity. Well done to @kunleafo and the rest of the team for delivering a lovely project

"أعلم كيف يبدو شكل التخلي،أن تقوم بإيقاف مشاعرك فجأة،وتتمنى بشدة أن يستمر ذلك إلى الأبد،فأنت تضع حاجزاً بينك وبين الأشخاص،العلاقات،أحلامك التي لطالما كافحت لتحقيقها،حتى مع إستمرارها بالتحرك داخلك،كنت تحاول ألا تفقد أكثر مما فقدته حتى الآن..😊"
"I know what it's like to give up,to stop your feelings all of a sudden,you strongly hope that this will continue forever,you but a barrier between you & the people,relationships,dreams that you have always struggled to achieve,even as they continue to flow inside you,you try not to lose more than you have lost so far..😊"
