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


Sardina Metal : Unboxing

Written by • Nov 3rd, 2011 • Category: Toys
The metal editions of the La Sardina proved too tempting and I picked both of them up from ThirtySix this afternoon. From the online images I saw of them … I did have a little doubt … that it will be just some cheap flimsy ‘metal’ covered with some gold paint on? I couldn’t wait to get home to unbox them and this is one rare occasion I decided to take some photos of the unboxing process. The two metal babies waiting to be unboxed! Unlike the plastic versions, the… >> read more


LC-Wide + Instax + Flash!

Written by • Jul 15th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
I don’t remember anything mentioned in the instruction manual about using flash with the LC-A+/LC-Wide instant back and being a curious fat cat … I mounted the Colorsplash flash on the LC-Wide this evening to see how it performs. It is a little tricky mounting the flash with the Instant Back on (I couldn’t remove the back because I have a pack of film it in) but that’s just a small challenge. I went ‘WHOAAA!’ when I saw the results! It looks a little … or rather … very crazy!… >> read more


La Sardinas : Which One?

Written by • Jun 22nd, 2011 • Category: Toys
The much anticipated pretty new toy cameras from Lomography arrived at ThirtySix! The La Sardinas! I couldn’t decide on which one to buy and after some very (tough) consideration … I went for all four. 🙁 Why is it that difficult to decide? Well … unlike cameras like the Blackbird, Fly which is a matter of choosing the color … the La Sardina has more to offer (in terms of the design). See below for some snapshots of the differences and try pick one that you like. 😉 The El… >> read more

Go On! Take My Life!

Written by • Jan 27th, 2011 • Category: Others
I saw the ‘Love Is In The Air’ special edition of the Diana Mini before I went to bed and said to myself that luckily it ain’t a Diana F+ instead. My credit card bill for the Tori edition has not even arrive and I wouldn’t wanna see another edition of Diana F+ causing more damage to my wallet. I must admit that I got a little excited when I saw the cool looking flash. Luckily I ain’t into the Minis. 😛 So I happily went to bed but when… >> read more


So Far So Good!

Written by • Jan 15th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
It’s Saturday and the weekend has been so far so good. After a short delay, I finally unpacked all the ‘girls’ (aka Diana cameras) and placed them back in my cabinet. I bet they were wondering what had happened since I collected them back from ThirtySix. 😀 As usual … weekends (at least most of the hours) are time spent with family (99% for Fitzand, 1% for wifey) … we took him out shopping and had an awesome brunch. Of course Mr Itchy Fingers couldn’t resist some snapshots … Fitzand… >> read more


Coca Kola?

Written by • Jun 4th, 2010 • Category: Others
UPDATE Sorry for the mistake but I was just informed that the retail price of this product should be around US$12 to US$15. I made a mistake about the pricing when I posted this. Sorry for the confusion. Stay tuned for more test photos. 😀 A package arrived this morning and I was a little surprised because I don’t remember buying any new toy online (unless I did it in my sleep) and in it were some samples of a pretty new product from Thailand … called ‘Kola Manual Color… >> read more


A New Home!

Written by • Apr 4th, 2010 • Category: Others
It was only last month that wifey told me that she’s got the contractor to come fix up a new cabinet to replace the ‘display wall’ I had in my study room. I used to like the display wall but I’ve got lazy and those photos there has been hanging around since the day I moved in many years ago. I was delighted!!! That meant I could have a bigger display cabinet for my toys! I used to shove them into two small shelves from Ikea, and hid some of… >> read more


Dolly? Really?

Written by • Apr 1st, 2010 • Category: Others
UPDATE Oh damn! I must be getting old! I was told that this is actually last year’s April Fool joke! OMG! Sorry for the false alarm. It is an April’s Fool joke or is it real? We won’t know for sure. Saw in Lomography Japan’s website that there is this new Dolly Diana F+ camera. Looks pretty cute but this ain’t a good day to believe what we see. 😀 It has been a while since the last Diana F+ clone appeared … so … ermmm … I’m actually hoping… >> read more
