Where did Superman go?
Lost in translation – Premier League Newcomer Chippa Mpengesi
In an exclusive interview with Premier League newcomer boss Chippa Mpengesi, a journalist asks the wrong question…
Journalist: “Okay, is it true that your the sole bread-winner in your family?”
Mpengesi: “It’s not the first time I’m hearing this accusation, it’s been going on for some time now. It must be from my enemies who want to tarnish my image. I can tell you one thing, I’ve never entered a bread competition. I will sue anyone who says I’m a bread-winner, including you journalists.”
According to Rich Wagner, a professional photographer, “The truth is, you can take great photos with lousy cameras and lousy photos with great cameras. Your decision rides mostly, then, on what you plan to do with the camera and where you plan to sell the pictures it produces.” Photography is a field that has something in store for everyone. Whether you’re a gadget-lover and want to have the updated high-technology tools or you’re someone who is always on-the-go and in need of something that you can easily carry, there are cameras that are made to match your needs. But because there are so many choices available in the market today, how do you decide which camera best suit you?
Types of Cameras
Let’s not include camera phones; there are 3 basic types of cameras: Advanced Digital, Point and Shoot, and SLR.
· ‘Point and Shoot’ cameras. This type of camera provides its user with an obvious benefit—it is small and easy to travel with. Today, there are great compact cameras offered by different brands such as Panasonic and Sony. They have smaller lenses, which makes the quality of the image compromised. This type of camera is hopeless for wildlife photography, but can work fine in a market scene in Asia or the busy streets of Ranganathan. Compact cameras also perform poorly in low light.
· Advanced Digital cameras. For many people, the simple specs of a Canon G12 are enough to produce decent photos. Compared with a point and shoot camera, the lenses of an advanced digital camera are better and interchangeable. This type of camera also provides a lens that has a bigger focal length range, manual controls and you can also attach filters like an external flash and polarisers. They are bulkier than a point and shoot camera but a lot lighter than an SLR.
· Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras. This is the perfect camera for people who love photography and want to produce the best image for keepsakes. The lenses are interchangeable. Digital SLRs, known as DSLRs, are becoming popular among professional photographers today because of the quality images that it produces.
If you are still unsure of the type of camera to buy, you can check out different forum sites that tackle different topics like photography, online games like poker, and gadgets (mobile phones and cameras). Forum sites are the perfect place to share your thoughts about a topic that you are interested in. For instance, you are an avid online poker player from websites like PartyPoker; there are communities of online poker players who will be interested in knowing what hand you usually call and what kind of play you employ when in the middle of a poker tournament. Poker websites also have their own on-site community where players can interact with each other. You may be surprised to know that there are poker players who are also photography enthusiasts. Aside from talking about poker, you can also exchange tips on how to get the perfect camera for your needs.

The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) celebrates its 10th year of hosting CANSA Shavathon events in 2013 and encourages everyone to take part from 25th February to 2 March 2013 at their workplace or at a shopping centre by shaving, spraying, stencilling or – new for 2013, gelling hair – for a R50 donation (kids under 12, only R25).
The first Shavathon was held in the Eastern Cape in 2003 as a way to show solidarity or support for those touched by cancer as losing hair is a common side effect of cancer therapy. Participants show support by donating a fee to shave or colour-spray hair, with some using fun stencil shapes of a star, butterfly, flower, soccer ball, lightning bolt and the word ‘warrior’. The donation is used by CANSA to provide a service to the public and all people affected by cancer. (http://goo.gl/H0pJP)
CANSA started the countdown to the 10th Shavathon, by hosting a mini-Shavathon recently. Special guests included 13-year old student Matthew Moffet, a high functioning autistic, who had been growing his hair for a year in order to shave and show his support for cancer survivors. His head was shaved by CANSA CEO and cancer survivor, Sue Janse van Rensburg. (view pics on http://goo.gl/GIE0I)
Also showing support is Sizwe Lawrence Ndlovu, 2012 Olympic Rowing Gold medallist whose mother passed away from cancer. “I’m taking part in Shavathon to honour my mother who was a pillar of strength to me. I want to ensure that others, especially other mothers become aware of cancer and assist and show their support”, he explained. (view pics on http://goo.gl/GIE0I)
Corporates, workplaces and schools can show their support from 25 February – 1 March 2013, register and order supplies on (http://www.shavathon.org.za/your-own-event-step-1/ – this might change after the new Shavathon shop has been implemented) or at the nearest shopping centre on Saturday 2 March 2013 (http://www.shavathon.org.za/shave-or-spray-at-a-shopping-centre/) country-wide. Sue Janse van Rensburg, CANSA CEO, says “It’s our 10th Shavathon, and we challenging all South Africans to show their support in the fight against cancer and for cancer survivors. We excited to introduce for the first time, colour gel for those wanting a funky hair-do”.
