The Last Camera : Test Roll

Written by • Oct 25th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

If you have read my earlier blog entry about my attempt to assemble the Last Camera … you will probably know that I almost screwed up when I was working on the lens assembly. I messed up the elements and had to buzz Jimmy (from ThirtySix) to help check which was the 2nd and 3rd […]



Pentax MZ-S + Solaris 200

Written by • Oct 2nd, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

This test roll took a bit longer than expected to complete. A roll of long expired Solaris 200 was used to test the Pentax MZ-S I bought some weeks ago … paired with an old Pentax F 50mm f1.7 lens. This has been the SLR I’ve long wanted and eventually I gave up on the […]



Taming The Beast

Written by • Aug 10th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

Fitzand’s didn’t have to attend class today and so I took a day off to babysit him. After breakfast I took him for a fun time at Gardens By The Bay … and lugging along my Mamiya 645 Pro TL for a test drive. I picked up this (darn heavy) beast some time back but […]



Warming Up The F3

Written by • Aug 7th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

Left with not much time and inspiration to shoot, I recently pulled out my old Nikon F3 and loaded a roll of Lomo negatives to give the camera a ‘warm up’. It has been sitting in there (cabinet) for a while now and I sure don’t want it do die a natural death in there. […]



Seeing Red After Beer

Written by • Jul 22nd, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

The roll (of disaster) that was halfway scanned (a roll of Lomo redscale 120) from some weeks back became an eyesore on my desk … so I decided to scan the surviving shots and get over it as soon as possible. Yeah … this was the roll I shot (with my Diana F+) not long […]



Diana + Redscale Randoms

Written by • Jun 26th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

I’m getting closer to clearing all the partially exposed rolls of film left stuck in some cameras. This time … a roll of Lomography redscale film finally got fully exposed and it in are some random shots from Taiwan and Singapore. Well … only 2 were shot in Taiwan. 😛 I could only find time […]



Fisheye2 Vs Fathers’ Day

Written by • Jun 18th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

Happy Fathers’ Day!!! Now time sure zap past real fast and it is another Fathers’ Day. It was just last year that I did a short video for the ‘Papa Amigo‘ feature in Lomography’s website. This year Fitzand made me some lovely cards in school and yesterday we had an early celebration … having a […]



Sardina Re-lovin

Written by • Jun 11th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

Here’s another roll of film that has been ‘fermenting’ in a camera for some time. This time … it is a roll of Lomography 100 negatives in my La Sardina. The La Sardina has been one of my favorite Lomography camera! Was lucky to have some light leaks thrown in for a couple of shots. […]



The One Year Old Roll

Written by • Jun 3rd, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

In an attempt to clear all halfway exposed rolls from my cameras, I took some random snaps on my Pentax MZ-S today and got the roll of Neopan 1600 developed (at home). What surprised me was the photos in this roll … some from about a year ago! How do I know? This one below […]



Diana Returns!

Written by • May 24th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

Friends found it hard to believe when I told them that I shot only about a roll of 120 on my Diana F+ and maybe 15 frames on my LC-A+ during my recent vacation to Taiwan. It is not that I wasn’t trigger happy but … the *cough cough* truth is … I was spending […]
