MZ-S Roll 2 From Japan

Written by • Nov 29th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
This is the 2nd roll I shot with the Pentax MZ-S. It is the 2nd and final roll of color (xpro-ed) film I shot before I switched to using the GR21 with black & white film. I can’t remember exactly what that roll of expired film was but ermm … nevermind. 😛 I suspect that if I had not bought the GR21 and started doing some test shots with it … I might have ended up shooting 5 or more rolls with the MZ-S. It has become my favourite film… >> read more


The MZ-S Roll From Tokyo

Written by • Nov 24th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
Before the ‘arrival’ of the GR21 … I was planning to use only my Pentax MZ-S and a 50mm for all analogue photography. As I didn’t shoot much when I was in Yokohama (except digital ones), my fingers were given a treat when we moved to Tokyo. Many of these were taken in Disneyland as it was the first place we went to after leaving Yokohama. This is also a roll of expired Neopan 400 that I developed in the bathroom this morning. I made the right decision to bring… >> read more


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 search for an affordable silver one and settled for a black version. The autofocus makes it easier for my old eyes but I tend to get too trigger happy when things get too easy. LOL.… >> read more


Scanned The Rest

Written by • Nov 25th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Finally done scanning the rest of the photos from my 1st roll of DIY developed black & white film (a roll of Neopan 400). You will find most of these are very random shots … ranging from puppies to chickens, from broken cups to wheelbarrows … as I was trying (very) hard to finish the roll during a trip to a relative’s place in Malaysia last weekend. I somehow ‘had to prepare’ a roll to try out DIY developing when I get back here and I am sure glad I… >> read more


I Did It! Yeah!

Written by • Nov 24th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Now that the worries are over … I am happy to announce that my first roll of black & white film … developed at home … survived! I couldn’t be happier to see the film strip with images on them! I was dead worried I’ll send the roll (despite being a roll of random test shots) straight into the garbage bin. Woke up a little earlier today … so I have a bit of time to scan some of the photos to see how they turned out … I must… >> read more


Partner For My 50mm

Written by • Oct 11th, 2011 • Category: Toys
After some waiting … finally found a small & solid SLR to partner my 50mm manual lens. Some local seller eventually lowered his asking price for this minty Pentax LX … and the green covering on it is a bonus! 😀 “It is a SLR which has its body structure made of rugged, die cast aluminum-alloy and equipped with a very reliable horizontally traveled Titanium electro-mechanical shutter, which provides a range of variable mechanical shutter speeds that will still be functional and withstanding temperatures down to -30C even in a… >> read more


Bright Fifty

Written by • Oct 3rd, 2011 • Category: Toys
I am amazed that I can still remember the password to login into my blog and create a new entry. 😀 Finally … the stress is over! I am done with scanning the photos for the exhibition to be held a couple of weeks from now … and also put the finishing touch to ‘very special’ camera (also for the exhibition). Stay tuned for details. 😉 Since life is now ‘back to normal’ … I’ll post some test photos taken with a Pentax A50 f1.2 lens that I recently traded… >> read more


When Old Meets New

Written by • Dec 30th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Dug out a beautiful condition Canon IVsb rangefinder camera from my cabinet just the other day to give the (cloth) shutter some workout. This time I loaded a roll of cheap expired negative to give it another round of exercise but managed to only shoot 4 shots. Hahaha! Damn. I have a big problem with the tiny viewfinder on that super old and cool looking camera. Suddenly I got an idea to put that camera + lens to better use. I can use that lens on my E-P1!!! I’ve read… >> read more
