The Digital Diana aka Rhianna

Written by • Dec 16th, 2014 • Category: Toys
They promised to produce and deliver the Rhianna camera (originally called the ‘digital Diana camera’ when they were seeking for crowd funding to build it) by Christmas and sure enough it landed on my desk last week. Well … it is more like a digital Mini Diana instead of the medium format Diana cameras as the camera looks almost identical to a Diana mini. Here is a quick first look at it (since I am very busy with everything else). I have no time to take photos of the actual… >> read more


Nano Block Toy Camera

Written by • Dec 27th, 2012 • Category: Toys
I couldn’t find any of these cute little Nano Block cameras in Tokyo when I was there not too long ago and as I was slowly forgetting about it … those (grrr!!!) lovely guys from ThirtySix started carrying this product! They come in red, yellow, white, black and blue and since I was picking an extra set up for a buddy … I went for two sets … a red and a yellow. Candy colored packaging. Yummy! It comes with a small pack of extra blocks for you to have… >> read more


The Damages

Written by • Nov 17th, 2012 • Category: Toys
We decided to skip the trip to the Bandai museum as I read that it only opens to pubic on weekends and Fitzand is only interested to check out the Power Rangers stuffs. As an alternative, we brought him to Hakuhinkan Toy Park near Ginza … one of the largest and best toy stores here in Tokyo. As expected … he was complaining about the long walk and train rides but this time a lot less because I promised to buy him toys. πŸ˜€ He saw many of his favourite… >> read more


Stardust Edition – La Sardina

Written by • Oct 13th, 2012 • Category: Others
Not sure if it was a big mistake agreeing to help a friend ‘dress up’ a La Sardina as a present for one of her friends. While I was toying with a few ideas on ‘dressing up’ the camera, she told me that the design has to be elegant. Huh? Elegant? That’s something I will have some problem creating! She told me that she trusts what I can come up with (crazy?!) and so I agreed and went on toying with some ‘elegant’ ideas. Hahaha! Knowing myself … I’ll go… >> read more


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 ago … during an ‘outing’ with Jimmy (from ThirtySix). Most of the shots from this roll turned out underexposed. πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™ Note to self : Do not drink beer before taking photographs! Hehehe! I’m… >> read more


About Keri

Written by • May 21st, 2012 • Category: Someone : About
It has been a long time since I’ve done any feature/interview for the ‘About Someone’ section and when I decided to invite someone to participate in this next one … I immediately thought of this photographer I got to know through Lensbaby some years back. Some of you might remember reading about her works in one of my blog entry about her photo book, Portland Vignettes. I’m a big fan of her works! A brief intro taken from her website … “Keri Friedman is a photographer living in Portland, OR.… >> read more


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 … and a few test shots … I knew I had to say goodbye to it. No … not that it isn’t fun … but I find myself not liking the way we are suppose to… >> read more


So Want These!

Written by • Feb 9th, 2012 • Category: Others
Personally … I think these are two of the most beautiful cameras Lomography ever created. Really! Now that’s my personal opinion … maybe because I love how raw they look. Lomography … why do you have to do this? Even if you have to do it … why do two of them at the same time?!!! I ain’t got a piggy in my Lomography account and I still need to keep some money for beer! Duh! When I first saw the Coyote … I told myself ‘Okay … get this… >> read more


Meet Pandacake!

Written by • Jan 27th, 2012 • Category: Others
It is great to be back home in Singapore after 5 days in Malaysia to celebrate the Lunar New Year with my folks. One of the coolest thing Β to happen during the trip was the delivery of my Pandacake … a character from the wooden Pecanpals series by designer Noferin. This is from the third and final edition of the Pecanpals … the monochrome edition. No prize for guessing why I choose Pandacake. πŸ˜› Β  This cute little wooden girl came in a very neat packaging. I didn’t take her out… >> read more


A Break Too Long

Written by • Jan 17th, 2012 • Category: Others
Guess I’ve been taking too long a break from updating my blog. I’ve not been shooting much lately and there are a few rolls of unfinished film in few of my cameras. The Lunar New Year is coming in a few days and hopefully during my stay in Malaysia (to spend the New Year with my folks) I am able to get trigger happy again. For the last couple of weeks (or months?) … what on earth was I doing if I ain’t busy with my cameras? Apart from the… >> read more
