This is probably one of the most important upgrade to date for mylensdb.com. And more essentially, it’s driving towards what it claims in its tag line, The Lens Database.
Here in mylensdb, we now get to see some sample photos taken using the specific lens that we are viewing at. For instance, we are looking at Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM in the screen shot below.
Here’s the dry part. Read on if you are interested on how photos are gathered and shown on the website.
After weeks of intensive works, the new mylensdb.com is finally up. There are still some works to be done to ensure smooth transition both files and databases though. But we are pretty much up there already. With the new platform, we are aiming to strive further becoming Malaysia’s one-stop most popular camera lens site!
After some serious thoughts, we have decided to get LensDB a prime address, a dotcom. Welcome to mylensdb.com.
Oh yes, we will rename it to myLensDB. We believe that this should be able to reflect the project much more better. my may stands for Malaysia or simple ‘my’, myself.
With it’s own address now, mylensDB is set to get much more exposure in the giant spider net and have more room for expansion. From now on, all the development would continue on there.
Thanks for your support all the while. Appreciate your feedback and comments. Let’s make this big!

May I present you with the latest addition of feature into LensDB. Hereby, we can view the latest entries added into the database making deal searching much better now.It’s part of our main objective making lens search easier. Ultimately, we may want to implement some real-time/ ajax search mechanism but that’s somewhere in the R&D department for now. Stay tune.
Of course, there are some minor bugs fixed here and there since our launch. We hope that our project has benefit some users, like you, like us!
Canon EFS 10-22mm
There are lots of channels in getting a good deal in buying new camera equipments, particularly lenses. We will often check the online store like Shashinki and Yamiya, this, being the most convenient and fastest way. There is also times when we might venture into local photography forums like PhotoMalaysia or Shutter Asia to see if the fellow forum-ers have obtained any good deal in the local camera stores. Last but not least we may want to walk-in to our favorite camera store to get a quote too.
As there are many channels involved. We believe that we can speed up the process and helping each other in getting the best deal possible.
With this, I would like to announce the official launch of LensDB. www.hugolim.com/lensdb
How it works? It works with your help. You can log into the website anytime to see and update new prices if you have found any good deal in town. No registration is needed thus we highly encourage you to contribute to build up our database here. The interface is pretty simple, head on and tell us how you think and together we will make it a better one.
There’s more features planned and development is still on-going as the project grows. Hang on there!
Note: This project is totally funded through my own money and through the advertisements seen in this website and is NOT sponsored by any retailer.
PS: I know that the name LensDB clashes with a .nl site but we will see if we need to change the name to reflect this project better. Thanks!
