Took some time off from baby sitting and spent a couple of hours with friends for a short shoot. Finally I can finish my test roll on the recent 35Ti I picked up … and as a matter of fact, I even got to finish another roll on it! Perhaps it’s because I’ve not been shooting film for a short while … my trigger-happy finger just couldn’t stop. πŸ˜€ Weather was crazy! It was so damn hot that we almost gave up shooting.

The first test roll was a roll of Solaris 400. I’m begining to like this film lots but it’s a little pricey.

With the 35Ti, now I’ve found a perfect ‘husband’ for the wider Fujifilm Klasse W that I sometimes find the 28mm lens not suitable for certain scenes. Now they can both work hand in hand … happily ever after.

The 35Ti has also this ‘panorama’ option … which actually done (commonly) through masking off the top and bottom part of the photo. I used to find it pretty silly (I can crop it myself!) but after giving it a try … I am finding it rather fun! This means I can frame my shots and leave them as they are instead of sitting behind the computer deciding how to crop them.

Next roll is a Fujichrome MS 10/1000Β cross-processed. I love the yellow feel it gives and for those photos with red subjects … they simply pop! Gosh! Another film I fell in love with? Arghhh!!! I don’t remember my previous roll being this yellow but … ermmm … maybe due to different lighting?

Here are the shots done at Little India …

It was hell hot when we got there (after the Kranji War Memorial). We had to take a short break … grabbed some cold drinks (not beer!) and some snacks before we could continue shooting.

You will also see some shots from the hip that probably look like they came out of a LC-A camera. Haha! Well I guess I’ll need to work harder on shooting from the hip with this camera.

This is my favourite shot from this 2nd roll. It ain’t well focused … it ain’t sharp at all … but I love it!

After these test rolls, I must confess that I love this camera lots and lots! Really glad I bit the bullet and bought it and I don’t foresee myself letting it go in the near future. Next I’ll try loading a roll of black & white film on it and see how it goes.

So far, the only problem I have with this camera is the auto flash. I’ve not been able to set the auto flash off permanently, perhaps I should read the manual again and re-attempt at it soon. Without setting the auto flash permanently off, I’ll have to press a little button on the left side of the camera before I take a shot … just to make sure the flash won’t fire. Having the flash fire at the wrong time (eg. street shooting) might get me killed someday. Hahaha!

There are some clues about my next blog entry (perhaps in a day or two) found in a couple of photos above. Anyone can guess? πŸ˜€

  18. awesome test shots on the camera! ya know, ive never actually used the panorama mode on my 28ti, but because of this post i think im gonna try to shoot an entire roll like that. it looks like it could be really fun!

  19. @garrick : Thanks. I was a little skeptical about using the pano mode (thus only the few frames), but I think I like it too. Nothing beats doing it on the camera, rather than cropping it in Photoshop later.

  20. Thank you sharing these wonderful discussions. In addition, the best travel along with medical insurance program can often reduce those issues that come with traveling abroad. A medical crisis can in the near future become very expensive and that’s certain to quickly set a financial burden on the family finances. Putting in place the best travel insurance program prior to setting off is worth the time and effort. Thanks

  21. We stumbled over here different web page and thought I might check
    things out. I like what I see so i am just following you.
    Look forward to looking over your web page for
    a second time.

  22. Thanks , I have just been searching for information about
    this topic for a long time and yours is the greatest I have found out so far.
    But, what about the bottom line? Are you certain concerning the source?
