Written by • Oct 25th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film

If you have read my earlier blog entry about my attempt to assemble the Last Camera … you will probably know that I almost screwed up when I was working on the lens assembly. I messed up the elements and had to buzz Jimmy (from ThirtySix) to help check which was the 2nd and 3rd […]

The Last Camera from Superheadz is the latest DIY camera that got some of us all excited and curious about. Picked up a set from ThirtySix yesterday and after Fitzand went to bed … me and my old eyes started work on trying to assemble the many little parts in the package. Due to the […]



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 […]

AB Version? Yeah … AB = All Black! After giving a steriod shot to my X-Pro1 yesterday … in the form a version 2.0 firmware update from Fujifilm … I’m loving the camera even more. Frankly in the past (before the update), although the autofocusing is a little on the slow side … it wasn’t […]

A friend (Lee Jiing … another photography addict) posted a photo of this plastic camera that comes with the Jr. Scientist magazine on Facebook and being curious (as usual) … I dropped him a message and he told me he found it at Toys R Us while shopping for toys for his kiddos. Toys R […]



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 […]



I Did It! Yeah!

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 […]

Written by • Nov 23rd, 2011 • Category: Others

After years of hesitation, I was finally convinced to give DIY film development of black & white film a go. All thanks to Jimmy who even helped me pick up a set of the developing kit when he bought his recently. I rushed over to ThirtySix during lunch to pick up the stuffs and he […]

‘Unmasking Negativity : The Truth Beneath’ is part of the ‘Impossible Lessons’ exhibition where a handful of people get to showcase and share special ‘tricks’ and experiments done using the Impossible Project films and Spectra cameras. I was pretty lost in the beginning … not knowing what to do and neither had I any experiment […]
