Sunny Rehab 2012

Written by • Aug 29th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
The last time I joined the Sunny Rehab organized by ThirtySix was in 2010. Did I miss the one in 2011 or did they not organize one? Anyway … after Fitzand’s music lesson in the morning last Sunday … I brought him & his mommy to Bollywood Veggies to meet the many photography (film/Lomo/whatever!) fans there. They chartered a bus to bring them to few places planned for the day and since we were late … we had to skip the goat farm and started our fun at the vegetable… >> read more


Horses, Friends And Fun

Written by • Aug 18th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Had a wonderful day at one of Fitzand’s classmate’s birthday party at the Horse City. The kiddos had a blast there with the pony rides, games and entertainment prepared for them. They engaged a professional photographer & videographer for the event and I was trying very hard to avoid getting in their way (or into their images/videos). Luckily I managed to bring back some snapshots of Fitzand and his friends having fun. Fitzand & the birthday girl. I rush a little as Fitzand couldn’t stay still for long … and… >> 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


Photographer With Attitude

Written by • Jul 30th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Minutes to midnight on a Sunday night. Hours from another hell-ish day at work! I’ll try not to think that far ahead and update my blog with a short entry. I’ve only some digital snapshots to post as I only managed to fire 20 exposures in a roll of negatives loaded in my Nikon F3. That means 16 more to go … perhaps next weekend. Was out doing some shopping and after an awesome dinner at a Korean restaurant, we picked up a present for a Fitzand’s classmate who will… >> 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


Sardina Re-lovin

Written by • Jun 11th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
Here’s another roll of film that has been ‘fermenting’ in a camera for some time. This time … it is a roll of Lomography 100 negatives in my La Sardina. The La Sardina has been one of my favorite Lomography camera! Was lucky to have some light leaks thrown in for a couple of shots. 😀 Since around 99% of my free time is spent with Fitzand … the little boss’s face appears in quite many frames (again). Hmm … I can’t recall when I loaded this roll of film… >> read more


Jr. Scientist Toy Cam

Written by • May 29th, 2012 • Category: Toys
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 Us! Looking very much like another one of those Gakken DIY plastic cameras … I decided to pick one up to take a look … at least get it assembled for fun … and see… >> 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


Rides, Birthday, Ice

Written by • Mar 18th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Since the childcare/kindergarten was closed on last Friday and I was on leave to look after Fitzand … I took him for a very hot day at the Universal Studios Singapore. He had lots of fun especially at the Transformers ride which he had been looking forward to. Fitzand got to experience 3D and 4D for the first time during those rides. It was funny seeing him go ‘Huh! Daddy! Is that saliva?!’ when a character sneezed and water sprinkled on us. Ermm … Mr Funny suddenly gave me the… >> read more


Lensbaby Edge 80

Written by • Feb 21st, 2012 • Category: Toys
Thanks to those fun people from Lensbaby, a copy of the Edge 80 arrived at my office today. Unfortunately it was close to midnight by the time I had time for myself (and my cameras), so giving this cool lens a proper test run is not quite possible (old folks need sleep too!). Anyway … here are some photos I took of the lens coupled with my K5 … The Edge 80 Optic is an 80mm f/2.8 flat field of focus optic with a 12-blade adjustable aperture and is perfect… >> read more
