Written by • Apr 21st, 2015 • Category: Toys

The fun people at Lensbaby teased us with some images (of bits and pieces of a new product) lately and when it was finally launched … I knew I was in trouble. Not only the new Velvet 56 lens seemed a whole lot of fun … but it comes with a silver version too! I […]

Written by • Dec 16th, 2014 • Category: Toys

They promised to produce and deliver the Rhianna camera (originally called the ‘digital Diana camera’ when they were seeking for crowd funding to build it) by Christmas and sure enough it landed on my desk last week. Well … it is more like a digital Mini Diana instead of the medium format Diana cameras as […]

Written by • Nov 10th, 2014 • Category: Toys

After being rather disappointed with Lomo’s instant backs for the Diana and LC-A+ (could be just me!) … I prayed hard that their new instant camera will be one that I’ll love. So few days ago … it landed on my desk and over the weekend I decided to take some photos of the unboxing […]

A week after this cool toy arrived and finally I find time to unbox it. Yeah … life’s been really busy these days and there is never a dull moment but I sure miss my cameras. Anyway … the Instant Lab arrived after I totally forgotten that I pledged for one some many months back. […]

Put the finishing touch to the Nano blocks digital camera yesterday and it should now be sitting comfortably somewhere in a friend’s place.

I couldn’t find any of these cute little Nano Block cameras in Tokyo when I was there not too long ago and as I was slowly forgetting about it … those (grrr!!!) lovely guys from ThirtySix started carrying this product!

The Damages

Written by • Nov 17th, 2012 • Category: Toys

We decided to skip the trip to the Bandai museum as I read that it only opens to pubic on weekends and Fitzand is only interested to check out the Power Rangers stuffs. As an alternative, we brought him to Hakuhinkan Toy Park near Ginza … one of the largest and best toy stores here […]



X-Pro1 Uglified

Written by • Oct 27th, 2012 • Category: Toys

Before you start reading or looking at the images below … please note that I am perfectly fine and my mental state is (maybe) in the ‘normal’ position. 😀 After I recently ‘blacked out’ all the white prints/text on my X-Pro1 … I decided to uglify it. Yeah … give it a ‘been through hell’ […]
