Extension Tube For M43

Written by • Mar 31st, 2011 • Category: Toys
From the people who brought us the fun Toy Lens from SLR Magic , here comes another very handy and interesting accessory that Micro 4/3 users will love. This new extension tube from SLR Magic made me go ‘Huh? a lens mount adapter?’ when I first saw it. Unlike those extension tubes I used before (on DSLR), this one is compact and …. hey … why is there a ring (the one closest to the cam body) that you can turn? We’ll look at that later on in this ‘first… >> read more


White Gone, Silver Here

Written by • Mar 26th, 2011 • Category: Toys
The white Pentax K-x finally left me after a year or so. The good thing is since I bought it at a great price in Tokyo … selling it off at a very very minimal loss today didn’t hurt a bit. What originally supposed to be a DSLR body to be used with my Lensbabies … ended up doubling as a camera I photograph Fitzand with. I got tempted by a couple of Pentax’s ‘Limited’ series silver lenses and pairing them with the K-x was fine … but AF speed… >> read more


Fuzzy 40!

Written by • Mar 18th, 2011 • Category: Others
Okay … so after maybe half a million pints of beer just now … I still have to struggle to upload few snapshots from a birthday dinner (just an excuse) cum beer session with my family and a couple of friends from ThirtySix just now. What was supposed to be a simple short dinner with Fitzand and wifey … turned up to be a longer ‘dinner’ when Jimmy from ThirtySix buzzed me for a ermmm … ‘short’ celebration. I ain’t one who celebrate birthdays but how can one resist a… >> read more


Quick Entry : 12 Mar 2011

Written by • Mar 12th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Got kicked outta bed (on a Saturday morning!) by Fitzand at about 7am and struggled to stay awake the entire day. I decided to play with the SLR Magic’s Toy Lens again today but told myself to give it a short rest while I get back to the film stuffs for a week or two. 😀 I ended up with only a few snapshots while having beer with an old friend after a lunch buffet. Gosh … am I feeling sleepy now! Okay … I’ll make this is a super… >> read more


Toy Lens : Fun?

Written by • Mar 5th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Since my last blog entry about the Toy Lens from SLR Magic, I got some requests for more sample photos and also a couple of questions … asking if I do find it fun. I decided to give up trying to write a review about this lens because … ermm … I can’t write well … I ain’t good at doing reviews … and ermmm …. I will just end up saying ‘Buy this lens! It is fun!’. 😀 Focal length : 26mm (52mm on m4/3) Aperture : f1.4 –… >> read more


Toy Lens : First Look

Written by • Mar 4th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
This new toy arrived at my desk … just a day after I placed an order (from Hong Kong). Super fast! The Toy Lens from SLR Magic … a lens that a blog reader/friend … ‘poisoned’ me with recently. You know who you are?!!! 😀 With a focal length of 26mm (which equals a 52mm on M4/3) … this little lens sure sounds fun! So how does it perform (or in toy lens/cam lovers’ perspective … ‘not perform’)? The lens is TINY! It is even smaller than the Pentax 25mm… >> read more


Strip In Strips

Written by • Feb 13th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Frankly … I was almost bored to death during my trip to Malaysia for the Lunar New Year recently. Luckily I managed to get my dad to make a trip to the store to get me a prepaid internet access SIM card. However … I was still super busy having to look after Fitzand and trying to recover from hangovers. 😛 In between these stuffs … I finished a roll of the Lomo Chrome 100 Xpro film (in a week). It was actually meant to be a roll of ‘first… >> read more


ETRSi Test Shots

Written by • Jan 7th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
The Bronica ETRSi has always been one of the camera I wanna lay my hands on to have a feel on how to operate such a camera. Recently a reasonably priced one came along and I grabbed it to have some medium format fun. It came with a 75mm f2.8 lens as well as the AE-II prism. It is one heavy beast and I stole a little time off from the trip to the zoo yesterday to burn some film to test it out. Struggled a bit and was trying… >> read more


Lensbaby Diary Is Back!

Written by • Jan 1st, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Two years ago I had to abandon my Lensbaby Diary (a Lensbaby photo a day project) as I just couldn’t find time to shoot every day. Well it is not too different now but since Fitzand is turning 4 next month and I’ve a bit more ‘breathing space’, I’ll give this project another go. Since today is the 1st of January 2011 … I thought why not kick off the project by photographing my favourite subject. 😀 After taking a few shots … I realised I had a problem. There… >> read more


Unboxing Tori

Written by • Dec 30th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I shiver whenever I hear my name being called while waiting at a dentist queue but it is a totally different story when I hear my name being called while I’m busy pounding my keyboard at my work desk. Of course the voice (of the person calling my name) must be from a stranger … and that is usually … the postman! A large parcel arrived today (a little late for Christmas but who’s complaining?!) and it in … the Tori Amos special edition Diana F+ camera! I was dead… >> read more
