Edge 80 Goes Out To Play

Written by • Feb 22nd, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Got an invitation to attend Fujifilm Singapore’s launch of the X-Pro1 camera today but I sneaked outta it when everyone were busy giving a go at the cameras. There were pretty models and cool macro stuffs for us to try the X-Pro1 on but after sneaking out to reply some urgent messages … I decided to get myself a few pints of cold beer and … whip out my DSLR & Lensbaby … with the Edge 80 optic. Yeah … I’ve got serious attitude problem. 😛 Wondering what I feel… >> read more


Lensbaby Edge 80

Written by • Feb 21st, 2012 • Category: Toys
Thanks to those fun people from Lensbaby, a copy of the Edge 80 arrived at my office today. Unfortunately it was close to midnight by the time I had time for myself (and my cameras), so giving this cool lens a proper test run is not quite possible (old folks need sleep too!). Anyway … here are some photos I took of the lens coupled with my K5 … The Edge 80 Optic is an 80mm f/2.8 flat field of focus optic with a 12-blade adjustable aperture and is perfect… >> read more


Portland Vignettes

Written by • Oct 14th, 2011 • Category: Toys
I feel in love with the simple yet awesome photos she takes and posts in Facebook and when I saw that she has this lovely ‘Portland Vignettes’ book published … I didn’t think twice about ordering a copy. I got to know Keri through Lensbaby (she’s a lucky devil to work in a company making fun lenses!). A copy of the book arrived today (I got a signed copy!) and I must say that I’m impressed! “Keri Friedman is a photographer living in Portland, OR. By day she works for… >> read more


Cows, Ideas & Buskers

Written by • Sep 3rd, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Sometimes ideas come at the strangest moments. I sort of gave up trying to think of a new idea/design for the project mentioned in my previous blog entry and today … while out having brunch with some friends … my old brain suddenly went ‘zaaaaap!’ and I now have a pretty cool (I hope) idea for it! It is gonna take some effort (or rather … a lot of them) but I’m sure if it turns out well … it’s gonna be cool (I hope again)! We had Japanese BBQ… >> read more


Composer gone Pro!

Written by • Aug 27th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Yeah … my Lensbaby Composer has gone pro. Received the Pro version of the Composer from Lensbaby yesterday and it answered all my questions before about how different can it be from the normal version. After drawing a Hello Kitty leaving a big ‘X’ on the polling slip for the Presidential Election this morning, we went out for a great breakfast with some friends and then spent some time doing some shopping … and of course for me … some shooting! This set of candid photos above is my favourite… >> read more


Get A (Better) Grip!

Written by • Jun 15th, 2011 • Category: Toys
This is probably the last ‘investment’ I’m ever gonna make on my X-100 and it arrived in the mail today. A ThumbsUp CSEP-2 that was originally designed for the Leica X1. It fits perfectly on the X-100 and now it is way easier shooting with one hand (which I do often as I’ve to hold on tight to my little Energizer bunny, Fitzand) and I don’t have to try keep a good grip on the camera anymore. The silver version looks pretty good on the X-100 despite the fact that… >> read more


Game Over (For Now)

Written by • Feb 9th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
A week has passed without work. A week of leave went up in ashes. The Lunar New Year celebration is over (at least for me … or did I even celebrate at all?). Tomorrow will be the first day I get my butt back to work. For once … I’m taking a photo that reflects exactly how I feel now … No Angry Bird was harmed in the making of this photo. Oven thoroughly cleaned too. This was taken using the Lensbaby Composer about an hour ago. I just collected… >> read more


Lensbaby Diary Is Back!

Written by • Jan 1st, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Two years ago I had to abandon my Lensbaby Diary (a Lensbaby photo a day project) as I just couldn’t find time to shoot every day. Well it is not too different now but since Fitzand is turning 4 next month and I’ve a bit more ‘breathing space’, I’ll give this project another go. Since today is the 1st of January 2011 … I thought why not kick off the project by photographing my favourite subject. 😀 After taking a few shots … I realised I had a problem. There… >> read more


Christmas 2010

Written by • Dec 25th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Merry Christmas!!! Some find it hard to believe that I turned down invitations to go grab some beer last night (on Xmas eve) but it is very true that I made the decision to spend the evening at home with my family instead. Good boy eh? 😀 We just got back from some shopping and lunch at Orchard Rd and Fitzand got himself some new toys as early birthday presents. It is about 2 weeks to go til his 4th birthday but we decided to let him pick his presents… >> read more


Early X’mas Presents

Written by • Nov 27th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I remember a couple of years back, my first Christmas present for that year came early … in the form of a package from Lensbaby. This year … it is like deja vu … a juicy parcel landed at my office the day I started work after my short vacation! That made the first day at work (a little) better. 😀 Too bad it was too late for my trip, otherwise I’d have lugged my DSLR with the (Lens)babies along. Anyway … there is always a next vacation. 😀 There… >> read more
