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


8 Days Of Fun

Written by • May 2nd, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
A short summary of our Taiwan trip last week. We found out about Leofoo Resort during our previous Taiwan trip a couple of years back and we knew that will be definitely a place to bring Fitzand to for a short trip. We got a room facing the area where the animals were and this is definitely a trip that Fitzand loves lots. He was complaining a lot when we left the resort for Taipei after 4 days because he wanted to stay longer. The awesome thing about this resort… >> read more


Checking Out :(

Written by • Apr 30th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
30 minutes til we check out and hop on the next flight back to Singapore. 🙁 The 8 days vacation just zapped past and it is back home … to reality! I’ll upload these photos taken on the streets of Taipei now … so that I won’t have a backlog of photos to go through when I get back home. My favorite shot (above) … the only one in color. I walked back to the scene 3 minutes after walking past to take this shot … right in front of… >> read more


X-Pro1 Streetshooting

Written by • Apr 26th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
After the infrared test … next comes something more fun (to me) … shooting on the streets with the X-Pro1. I have only the 35mm lens with me and thus it will be a little bit more challenging for me as I usually prefer wide angles for streetshooting. I switched the camera to the black & white (with red filter) film simulation mode and took some test shots while we were making a dash to a late lunch. Dialed -1 on the exposure compensation and fired away … The very… >> 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


Bye Bye Lytro

Written by • Apr 22nd, 2012 • Category: Toys
Some of you might have noticed that I picked up a Lytro light field camera recently. I actually ‘snatched’ it when I saw a 16GB version one that was 3 weeks old on sale in a local photography forum … at a very good price! After keeping it for slightly about a week plus … and a few test shots … I knew I had to say goodbye to it. No … not that it isn’t fun … but I find myself not liking the way we are suppose to… >> 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


A Break Too Long

Written by • Jan 17th, 2012 • Category: Others
Guess I’ve been taking too long a break from updating my blog. I’ve not been shooting much lately and there are a few rolls of unfinished film in few of my cameras. The Lunar New Year is coming in a few days and hopefully during my stay in Malaysia (to spend the New Year with my folks) I am able to get trigger happy again. For the last couple of weeks (or months?) … what on earth was I doing if I ain’t busy with my cameras? Apart from the… >> read more


That Other Roll

Written by • Dec 12th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
The first self developed roll of 120 film ended up in quite a mess two days ago and luckily I told myself to not develop that other roll (these 2 were test rolls on the GF670 with Rollei Retro 400 film) that same day. One day later … I took a deep breath and gave it another go … this time telling myself to be a little patient and careful when rolling the film onto the plastic spool. It wasn’t any easier (rolling the film) this second attempt. I ended… >> read more


Roll Of Disaster

Written by • Dec 11th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
After a successful attempt at DIY developing my first roll of 35mm black & white film recently, I took a risk (it is always a risk for a clumsy guy like me) and attempted doing the same for a roll of 120 film. This is one of two test rolls (Rollei Retro 400) I took randomly to test out my GF670. I’ll talk about the camera later on. Notice the white patch on the bottom right of the photo above? Okay … here’s the whole story. Loading the 120 film… >> read more
