X100 Minus 00

Written by • Jun 5th, 2012 • Category: Toys
Yup … Take away the ’00’ from the X100 and now it is X1. The Leica X1! Traded my Fujifilm X100 with a friend’s very minty condition X1 … just to have a feel of it (despite knowing the slower AF and lack of video function). It has been years since I’ve used a Leica digital camera. The last one was the Digilux 2 which I love and it was a great cam in those old days. Found a matching 2nd hand hand half case at a great price and… >> 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

Lensbaby In Taiwan (Part I)

Written by • Apr 27th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
After some test run with the X-Pro1 … finally time to whip out my Lensbaby for some big fun! Paired the Composer Pro + Edge 80 optic with my K-01 … I sort of went trigger happy (as usual) and here are 40 of the photos … I really don’t know how to explain this … but each and every time I touch the Lensbaby … I simply go crazy! It is always big fun using the Lensbaby (any version of it) and I’ve never got bored using them. A… >> read more

X-Pro1 Does IR!

Written by • Apr 25th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
My third day in Taiwan and I’m beginning to love the X-Pro1 more each day. Gosh … now I’m beginning to think that I want one! Since I have a week to play with it … I brought along my Hoya R72 IR filter to test if the cammie can give good results (in IR). I saw some online photos and they claim that the X-Pro1 can do handheld IR in high ISO. Pumping ISO to either 6400 or 12,800 sometimes … it seems that the X-Pro1 is capable to… >> read more

The Bumblebee Cam

Written by • Mar 3rd, 2012 • Category: Toys
The boxy and pretty weird looking Pentax K-01 arrived in stores yesterday and after breakfast today … I dragged Fitzand along to the shop to pick up a set. Not sure if it was a right thing to bring him along because what originally was supposed to be a black version … ended up … yellow. That’s just because I asked to take a look at the yellow one and Fitzand’s eyes suddenly went all time big and went ‘Daddy! This one nice! Bumblebee (blame Transformers!) camera! Buy this one!’.… >> read more

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

SLR Magic Pinhole : Test 1

Written by • Feb 4th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Tried very hard to take some test shots with the SLR Magic’s Pinhole (paired with my good ol’ E-P1) today when out with my family. Luckily I had some time out in the sun and managed to squeeze out 10 test shots. You might notice some dust (quite a lot of them!) spots on the photos … as I was too lazy to clone out all of them. 😛 You can actually see and compose the scene on the LCD if you are shooting out in the sun. Indoors …… >> read more

Lovin It Ugly

Written by • Feb 2nd, 2012 • Category: Others
Trouble began when I read about rumors of a mirrorless camera from Pentax that accepts any K-mount lens. Now I’m glad I didn’t sell off any of the few Limited silver lenses I have and soon … those lovely lenses (including my Lensbabies!) will have a new mommy (my silver K5 is the daddy!). Well … this mommy ain’t the slim and sexy type though. Hahahaha! She’s ermm … boxy and ermm … weird … but I’m loving it! 16.28 Megapixel CMOS sensor form the K-5 New Prime M imaging… >> read more

SLR Magic Pinhole For M43

Written by • Feb 1st, 2012 • Category: Toys
I sold off my Wanderlust Pinwide some time ago in anticipation of this one from SLR Magic and after some waiting … finally it came knocking at my door yesterday. The company has yet to officially sell this sexy pinhole ‘lens’ … so this is a special preview and I’ve no idea of the pricing yet. Introducing the SLR Magic Pinhole for Micro 4/3 (M43) cameras! Here are some photos of the unboxing process … The SLR Magic Toy Lens Pinhole comes in cute little box that has a similar… >> read more

X10 : More Random Tests

Written by • Oct 28th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Gave the X10 more random test shots today and mostly done using the EXR mode (I call this … the lazy bum like me mode) … all I did was press the shutter button. Many of them done in low light and here are the results … The straight outta cam results are satisfying (for me). None of these shots were Photoshopped except for web resizing. After some hours of use … I still don’t quite like the idea of having to turn the zoom barrel to switch on the… >> read more
