Hope for the best , Be prepared for the worst!

Light of Hope

“But at my back I always hear
Time’s winged chariot hurrying near;”
I always wondered, all through my growing up years, as well as during my youth what this actually meant. Are these two statements not contradictory!? Every time I appeared for a written test my hope will be directly related to my preparation, I failed to realize the implication of the saying all my life.

Used it mostly when I used to go to tours with my parents. One thing always bugged me was the shutter lag. Later I bought Fuji Finepix S1500. I still faced the saem problem other than very good picture quality. Though another problem was low light performance of the camera. Specifically in dusk and under flash when the object is far away from my camera. So this time my criteria was low shutter lag, good performance under low light and high spped photography like high burst rate.
