The OneKnot Strap

Written by • Jun 14th, 2012 • Category: Toys
Finally found a leather wrist strap that I love lots! This 21cm OneKnot wrist strap from Zhou (jiozhou on eBay) is made from fine cow hide … looks simple … and has the ‘raw’ look that I love. It is very soft and comfortable yet feels strong enough for most cameras that doesn’t weigh a ton. There ain’t no stitches or clips. The design is cleverly secured using a simple knot (thus the name OneKnot). Luckily it is pretty nicely priced (US$18.50) that I bought two of these … one… >> read more


X-Pro1 Dressed Up

Written by • May 25th, 2012 • Category: Toys
After being naked for some time … finally I got my X-Pro1 ‘dressed up’. It took almost 2 weeks for this Funper leather half case to arrive from Hong Kong. There are 101 choices (of half cases) out there but I find this one pretty neat and price is reasonable. Didn’t wanna spend more on a JnK case like the one I have for the X-100, so I placed an order and was told it would take almost 10 days for the factory to make it. Huh? Made on demand?… >> read more


eBay, eBoy

Written by • May 15th, 2011 • Category: Others
An hour ago … while playing with Fitzand in his room and he was typing away on his imaginary computer … when he suddenly turned over and asked ‘Daddy! You want to buy a camera?’. I was a little puzzled but soon I realised it could be because sometimes when he comes bugging me while I’m at my computer … I’ll be surfing the ‘net looking at cameras. 😀 Oh no! Hahaha! So I promptly said ‘Yes … I want a camera.’. My little boss with my netbook. No …… >> read more


Toy Lens : Fun?

Written by • Mar 5th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Since my last blog entry about the Toy Lens from SLR Magic, I got some requests for more sample photos and also a couple of questions … asking if I do find it fun. I decided to give up trying to write a review about this lens because … ermm … I can’t write well … I ain’t good at doing reviews … and ermmm …. I will just end up saying ‘Buy this lens! It is fun!’. 😀 Focal length : 26mm (52mm on m4/3) Aperture : f1.4 –… >> read more


Toy Lens : First Look

Written by • Mar 4th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
This new toy arrived at my desk … just a day after I placed an order (from Hong Kong). Super fast! The Toy Lens from SLR Magic … a lens that a blog reader/friend … ‘poisoned’ me with recently. You know who you are?!!! 😀 With a focal length of 26mm (which equals a 52mm on M4/3) … this little lens sure sounds fun! So how does it perform (or in toy lens/cam lovers’ perspective … ‘not perform’)? The lens is TINY! It is even smaller than the Pentax 25mm… >> read more

Kipon Tilt Adapter

Written by • Jul 13th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
My dream of getting a tilt-shift adapter to use on my Olympus E-P1/E-PL1 went crashing out of the window when I found out that a Japanese company/shop was coming out with one that costs about US$400. That’s a lot of money for an adapter and I gave up all hopes … until recently … somehow my itchy fingers typed ‘w … w … w … e … b … a … y … c … o … m’. Out of the blue, I was suddenly reminded of the tilt-shift adapter… >> read more


Cherry Coke Cam!

Written by • Mar 11th, 2010 • Category: Toys
After avoiding e(vil)Bay for a long long time, I finally went in to lurk around lately because I have some money in my PayPal account. Came across this tiny Cherry Coca-cola 110 camera and it was going for about US$1.50 … and so I placed my bid for it and waited. Somehow nobody seemed interested in this little old cutie and so I won it! Yipee! Now I have another old Coke camera to add to my collection. I remember getting all ‘addicted’ to these old Coke cameras years before… >> read more

The Diana Mini created quite a lot of excitement not too long ago and I’m sure there are many fans of this cute little camera out there.
