12 Frames Here & There

Written by • Jan 7th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Something shocking happened during my trip to Taiwan recently. I opened up my camera bag … removed the back from my Diana F+ and … OMG!!! I forgot to bring along an empty 120 spool and also the bottom plate that holds the roll of film in place! I removed it to install the instant back some time ago but forgot to place it back! Oh no! For a second my plan to fire at least a roll with the camera went up in smoke. A few seconds later I… >> read more


ETRSi Test Shots

Written by • Jan 7th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
The Bronica ETRSi has always been one of the camera I wanna lay my hands on to have a feel on how to operate such a camera. Recently a reasonably priced one came along and I grabbed it to have some medium format fun. It came with a 75mm f2.8 lens as well as the AE-II prism. It is one heavy beast and I stole a little time off from the trip to the zoo yesterday to burn some film to test it out. Struggled a bit and was trying… >> read more


06 Nov 2010

Some friends once told me that if they see me whipping out my camera during meals … trying to photograph the food … that will mean that I’m getting restless, bored or simply need to go burn some rolls of film (ASAP). The recent couple of months has been pretty super sucky at work and thus I’ve not much mood to shoot much. 🙁 Damn. I’m mentally super tired from all that stuff and luckily in exactly a week from now … I’ll be on a plane for a week… >> read more


Holga + T400CN : Tokyo

Written by • May 5th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
I remember having to pour out the contents of my camera bag for the airport security guy (Narita Airport) and showed him my cams and chargers etc. He then put them all in 2 trays to re-scan them. He later came back to me and handed back my stuffs and held up my Holga … and said ‘Camera!’. I was wondering if he was asking me if that ugly plastic is a camera or was he telling me it is a cool camera. Hmm. Nevermind. I threw in the Holga… >> read more


Fun, Cold, Poison : Day 1

Written by • Apr 24th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
* This was supposed to be published this morning but in a rush to go grab breakfast … I forgot to click the ‘Publish’ button. Anyway … here it is … Since the two piggies are still sleeping, I’ll take the chance to post up some snapshots taken yesterday … the first day here in Tokyo. I do not have any decent photo editing software with me, so I just had to make do with GIMP (it was hell using it for the 1st time). Well … these were mostly… >> read more


Black Peppered 120

Written by • Apr 2nd, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Do you guys ever feel like you’re neglecting some of your cameras that you used to love? I do. Recently I had this weird feeling that I’ve been neglecting my Holga and thus loaded a long expired roll of Agfa Portrait into it. As some of you might know, I’m extremely busy recently trying to spend lots of time with my boy, trying to get him used to life without the *##@*&!@*&!! maid of mine … and so being trigger happy is quite a torture at the moment. Oh that… >> read more


I Love My Bicycle!

Written by • Mar 28th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Another lovely Sunday spent with my family. Woke up early to bring Fitzand to the park for his regular run/cycle outing before settling down for breakfast. Fingers felt a little itchy, so I brought along my Harinezumi 2 for some random video captures. Unfortunately the rechargable battery was a little cranky … it suddenly died even while the battery indicator was showing full bar. A few attempts to resurrect it failed … and it was soon showing an empty battery indicator. Duh! I forgot to bring alone my other rechargable… >> read more


Welcome Home 120

Written by • Dec 25th, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
After a long absence from shooting 120 film, this roll of Agfa Portrait 160 loaded into my Holga was supposed to be a ‘welcome’ back for me into the world of medium format. I’ll be shooting much more using 120 film come 2010. What was supposed to be a few rolls of images shot in Malaysia few weeks back … ended up only half a roll was completed. These first few were taken when were we in Kuala Lumpur … This one below is my favourite from the roll. Nevermind… >> read more


The Art Of Waiting

Written by • Dec 4th, 2009 • Category: Others
The lady from accounts department handed me a letter today and I burst into laughter. No … not a letter from my boss saying that I got an increment (something I’ve lost contact with). It was a letter from Canada and on it … it was written ‘The Art Of Waiting’. What’s so funny about that? I was waiting (impatiently) for a parcel to arrive. The parcel is suppose to be a replacement hard disk from Seagate and since I will be on leave for a week from tomorrow …… >> read more


Diana MPO [more]

Written by • Jun 23rd, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
Here are the remaining two rolls from the Diana Multi Pinhole Camera. To be honest … I thought this might be another camera that might be used a couple of times before being left sleeping on the shelf … but I was wrong. I love this camera! It will definitely be one that will be used pretty often but for the next roll … I’m gonna experiment with more stuffs with it and see how much more fun I can squeeze outta it. A friend asked me if I could… >> read more
