Lensbaby Velvet 56 – A Test Drive

Written by • Apr 29th, 2015 • Category: Lead Story

After (some miserable) days of waiting, I finally got to give the new Lensbaby Velvet 56 a quick test drive. As I had only a couple of hours to spare last Saturday, all I did was to run some random shots using that fun (and sexy!) lens. After an hour of testing, I have already […]



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 […]



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 […]



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 … […]



SLR Magic Pinhole : Test 1

Written by • Feb 4th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs

Tried very hard to take some test shots with the SLR Magic’s Pinhole (paired with my good ol’ E-P1) today when out with my family. Luckily I had some time out in the sun and managed to squeeze out 10 test shots. You might notice some dust (quite a lot of them!) spots on the […]



Tuning Up For The New Year

Written by • Jan 21st, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs

Finally I put the (very little) effort to try shove in a little AF fine tuning adjustment to my K5 paired with 85mm lens. I’ve always had this feeling that it is back/front focusing a little but couldn’t bothered to fine tune it (until today) and after a few minutes of testing and tweaking … […]



Composer gone Pro!

Written by • Aug 27th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs

Yeah … my Lensbaby Composer has gone pro. Received the Pro version of the Composer from Lensbaby yesterday and it answered all my questions before about how different can it be from the normal version. After drawing a Hello Kitty leaving a big ‘X’ on the polling slip for the Presidential Election this morning, we […]



So Dead

Written by • Jul 22nd, 2011 • Category: Toys

I’m so gonna get this! Ermm … should I? I have my last Double Money voucher worth US$50 and I might just burn it on this new baby … “Wrapped in Italian red goat leather and decorated with fertility symbols, the Russia Day Lomo LC-A+ features the original Russian Minitar 1 Lens which started the […]



LC-Wide & Instant Back

Written by • Jul 14th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film

I wasn’t planning to get the Instant Kit for the LC-Wide because I’ve not been too satisfied with the photos that the instant back produce when paired with my LC-A+. However things got a little different when Jimmy (from ThirtySix) gave me a Instant Kit last weekend and told me to bring along my LC-Wide […]



Pinwide In The Day

Written by • Apr 10th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs

After my recent first tests with the Wanderlust’s Pinwide indoors, finally I got to test it in the bright sun light. The fun thing about using it in the day is that you get to see what you are shooting on the LCD. Yeah … I thought I wouldn’t see a thing since the pinhole […]
