X1 : The Test Run

Written by • Jun 10th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
A week since the X1 got discharged from the ‘hospital’, today is the first time I got to really give it a test run. Like any other weekend of mine (these days) … getting to spend time with my camera alone is usually not possible … and so I took some test shots with the Leica X1 when out with my family today. Apart from these digital shots … I also (finally) managed to finish a roll of film in my La Sardina. Time to make a dash to the… >> 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


Get A (Better) Grip!

Written by • Jun 15th, 2011 • Category: Toys
This is probably the last ‘investment’ I’m ever gonna make on my X-100 and it arrived in the mail today. A ThumbsUp CSEP-2 that was originally designed for the Leica X1. It fits perfectly on the X-100 and now it is way easier shooting with one hand (which I do often as I’ve to hold on tight to my little Energizer bunny, Fitzand) and I don’t have to try keep a good grip on the camera anymore. The silver version looks pretty good on the X-100 despite the fact that… >> read more


White Is The New Black

Written by • Jan 19th, 2010 • Category: Others
I’ve often heard people saying that big black cameras makes one look more ‘professional’. Hahaha! I always find that funny but then I’m sure it does make a professional look more serious in his/her work. Wannabes love lugging around big black cameras too! Thank God there are camera manufacturers who thinks that white cameras are cool and we’ve seen some cameras out there … clad sexily in white. I recently came across this special white edition of the tiny Minox digital camera. Personally I think it will look cooler if… >> read more


Sexy In White!

Written by • Jul 9th, 2009 • Category: Others
I thought the white Olympus E-P1 was cool … until I saw this! A way crazy sexy cool all white Leica M8! This is a limited edition of 275 and comes a silver 28mm Elmarit-M ASPH lens, a white edition strap and an E39 UV/IR filter. The full set price is listed at $8,500 USD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll just keep these photos as eye candy and not dare to even dream of buying one. Is white the ‘in’ thing now for cameras? Honestly, despite the fact that I love white cameras that… >> read more


Charity Sale (Updated)

Written by • Jun 23rd, 2009 • Category: Others
UPDATE 21 Oct 2011 – “She is pain free and she gave us her parting smile.” were the words in her blog that made me real upset this morning. Charmaine has left us but I’m sure she is now in a better world than this. I do not personally know her or her family but on behalf of them, I’d like to thank all those who has helped the family in this ‘fight’. No … we didn’t lose. Charmaine was strong and she won herself a flight to a more… >> read more


Tiny Cam Fun

Written by • May 21st, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Bought my Minox DCC M3 Plus cutie camera from Japan some time ago and thought I should bring it with me more often since the tiny camera can fit even in my shirt pocket. Took me a while to dig out and figure out which battery and charger it uses and ended up charging it using a USB cable attached to my laptop. As a ‘warm up’, I took these three photos to make sure it is still in healthy condition. The photo above gave me quite a shock because… >> read more
