Loving Sunshine

Written by • Feb 17th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
It has been a while since I’ve updated my blog and since Fitzand went to bed very early today (2 sessions of skating lessons did the trick!) … I dug out few photos I took some weeks back (before the Lunar New Year) from my window … of the sunset. I’m one who prefers the sunrise (despite the crazy pain of waking up real early) but it doesn’t matter … it is still the same sun that’s gonna rise the next morning. These were shot using my Fujifilm XS-1. Although… >> read more

XF 18-55 Test Run

Written by • Nov 21st, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
There are just so many things I wanna do after arriving back here (at 5am!!!) … sending some rolls to the lab, testing the XF 18-55 lens on my X-Pro1, self-developing a few rolls of black & white film that I used to test the GR21, finish updating my blog layout and of course getting myself some good sleep. Most of these plans went up in ashes as Fitzand refused to take a nap and I after sending 2 rolls of slides to the lab for cross processing … I… >> read more

Exercising The GF670

Written by • Nov 7th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
After some months of ‘rest’, my Fujifilm GF670 got to go out for some fun again. This roll of long expired Fujifilm Pro 160s had a few exposures … ermm … exposed … and I was trying to finish shooting it. I am beginning to think that I should shoot only 120 film as I have way too little time for photography nowdays. 🙁 There was a small problem with the folding mechanism some months back … but after a close inspection … apparently it was something I dropped that… >> read more

X-Pro1 Uglified

Written by • Oct 27th, 2012 • Category: Toys
Before you start reading or looking at the images below … please note that I am perfectly fine and my mental state is (maybe) in the ‘normal’ position. 😀 After I recently ‘blacked out’ all the white prints/text on my X-Pro1 … I decided to uglify it. Yeah … give it a ‘been through hell’ kind of look. 😀 With a little help from Mr Sandpaper … now it sure looks like it has been through some hell. No … I didn’t drag it for a mile or two. I… >> read more

The Last Camera : Test Roll

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 lenses in the package. I had to pray real hard when he told me the answer … as I was worried he might be drinking beer when he replied me. 😀 Anyway … I was… >> read more

The X-Pro1 Blackout

Written by • Sep 20th, 2012 • Category: Toys
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 really a problem to me. Like I said many times before … any camera that can allow me to capture decent images of my boy (who is always moving!) is fast enough. 😀 The update… >> read more

The Few Shots

Written by • Aug 10th, 2012 • Category: Lead Story
Before I go take a rest after a super long (and tiring) day … here are the only few digital shots I took today. I know many of us here in Singapore have grown super tired looking at photos from the Gardens By The Bay but ermm … here are the few from me. I do have a few fireworks shots taken during the National Day celebration last night (from my window) but I ain’t gonna bore you guys by posting them. 😛 Hey I’ve got a starburst!!!! Ermmm my… >> read more

Taming The Beast

Written by • Aug 10th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
Fitzand’s didn’t have to attend class today and so I took a day off to babysit him. After breakfast I took him for a fun time at Gardens By The Bay … and lugging along my Mamiya 645 Pro TL for a test drive. I picked up this (darn heavy) beast some time back but just couldn’t find the time (and mood) to test drive it. The camera looks a little seasoned and I was a little worried it might give me problem since it is way past the few… >> read more

ZOOming In

Written by • Jul 1st, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
A trip to the zoo yesterday morning gave me the opportunity to give the Fujifilm X-S1 a test drive. Not one who usually use (or see the need) of a tele lens … I found myself struggling to find subjects to shoot just to test out the camera. The zoo outing was a perfect opportunity to zoom in close to the animals! The 24-624mm lens on the X-S1 sounds perfect as a camera for everything including a 1mm close super macro mode. Will this be the travel camera I’ve always… >> read more

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
