RX100 Skinned

Written by • Oct 10th, 2012 • Category: Toys

Probably the only ‘problem’ I find with the Sony DSC-RX100 … the way too slippery matt black surface of the camera body. Maybe it is just my fat clumsy fingers but I sure wished it has some form of rubber/leather skin to make holding it easier. Of course to be safe … I always use […]



The X-Pro1 Blackout

Written by • Sep 20th, 2012 • Category: Toys

AB Version? Yeah … AB = All Black! After giving a steriod shot to my X-Pro1 yesterday … in the form a version 2.0 firmware update from Fujifilm … I’m loving the camera even more. Frankly in the past (before the update), although the autofocusing is a little on the slow side … it wasn’t […]



The ‘311 We Care’ Strap

Written by • Aug 26th, 2012 • Category: Toys

I was eyeing this white special edition strap from Wotancraft + Annie Barton 1972 that a seller was giving away with the purchase of his Wotancraft bag. I have a Wotancraft bag and didn’t want to buy another (I’m broke!), so I decided to just forget about the strap some time ago. Great news is […]



Baby Fisheye Meets UFO Cam

Written by • Jun 28th, 2012 • Category: Toys

Dropped by ThirtySix this afternoon to pick up a Lomography Baby Fisheye since they are having this ‘Find me baby!’ promotion going on. I went for the plastic version since there ain’t a hotshoe on the metal version to directly mount a flash. No … I don’t quite like using a sync cable and hold […]



The OneKnot Strap

Written by • Jun 14th, 2012 • Category: Toys

Finally found a leather wrist strap that I love lots! This 21cm OneKnot wrist strap from Zhou (jiozhou on eBay) is made from fine cow hide … looks simple … and has the ‘raw’ look that I love. It is very soft and comfortable yet feels strong enough for most cameras that doesn’t weigh a […]



X100 Minus 00

Written by • Jun 5th, 2012 • Category: Toys

Yup … Take away the ’00’ from the X100 and now it is X1. The Leica X1! Traded my Fujifilm X100 with a friend’s very minty condition X1 … just to have a feel of it (despite knowing the slower AF and lack of video function). It has been years since I’ve used a Leica […]



Jr. Scientist Toy Cam

Written by • May 29th, 2012 • Category: Toys

A friend (Lee Jiing … another photography addict) posted a photo of this plastic camera that comes with the Jr. Scientist magazine on Facebook and being curious (as usual) … I dropped him a message and he told me he found it at Toys R Us while shopping for toys for his kiddos. Toys R […]



X-Pro1 Dressed Up

Written by • May 25th, 2012 • Category: Toys

After being naked for some time … finally I got my X-Pro1 ‘dressed up’. It took almost 2 weeks for this Funper leather half case to arrive from Hong Kong. There are 101 choices (of half cases) out there but I find this one pretty neat and price is reasonable. Didn’t wanna spend more on […]



Bye Bye Lytro

Written by • Apr 22nd, 2012 • Category: Toys

Some of you might have noticed that I picked up a Lytro light field camera recently. I actually ‘snatched’ it when I saw a 16GB version one that was 3 weeks old on sale in a local photography forum … at a very good price! After keeping it for slightly about a week plus … […]



Birthday Reloaded!

Written by • Apr 11th, 2012 • Category: Toys

It has been almost a month since my birthday and today … when I was at ThirtySix buying some film in preparation for a short vacation come month end … I received a super duper awesome cool present from those guys there! Well … I was supposed to buy the Sahara Diana F+ to add […]
