Tilt Vs Tilt

Written by • Jan 30th, 2011 • Category: Others
Ever since I mentioned in my blog that I bought the Kipon tilt adapter for my E-P1 … I got quite a number of emails asking me if it is of any good. Honestly I replied those emails with a very vague answer. Hahaha! ‘I am not very sure’. Well it all depends on what we expect from it. Those who has used a real tilt-shift lens might not like it … while people with low expectations (like me) find it pretty interesting. So I added in those replies that… >> read more


Early X’mas Presents

Written by • Nov 27th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I remember a couple of years back, my first Christmas present for that year came early … in the form of a package from Lensbaby. This year … it is like deja vu … a juicy parcel landed at my office the day I started work after my short vacation! That made the first day at work (a little) better. 😀 Too bad it was too late for my trip, otherwise I’d have lugged my DSLR with the (Lens)babies along. Anyway … there is always a next vacation. 😀 There… >> read more


Swirly In The Soup

Written by • Jul 10th, 2010 • Category: Others
After being notified about my Lensbaby aperture disc design being one of the runner ups, I was contacted by Picture-Soup.com for a short interview regarding it. For those wondering how those custom discs which made it in the list (and the awesome winning one) looks like, do check out the article because they did publish images of the discs as well. Check out the article here. That’s all for this entry. 😀 Gotta go get some sleep because I’ll be travelling up to Malaysia early in the morning … with… >> read more


Swirly Got Appy!

Written by • Jun 25th, 2010 • Category: Others
The Lensbaby’s ‘Get Appy!’ contest results is finally out! The contest was about submitting designs and sample photos of our own custom aperture discs and (as usual) at the last minute … I managed to do up a simple aperture disc design and took some test shots for submission. I didn’t want something ‘too clean’, so I made a curly shape with some jagged sides for that ‘raw’ feel. I made it into the list of runner-ups! Although they ain’t gonna give no prizes (duh!) to the runner-ups, but my… >> read more


Creative Aperture : Test 1

Written by • May 31st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Found a couple of blank aperture discs in my drawer (for the Lensbaby) just the other day and thought it might be cool to try doing some unique ones instead of those made by using craft punchers. It can also try submitting them for the Lensbaby’s ‘Creative Aperture Kit Contest’ and try my luck there. The usual problem of not having time to go out shooting was still bugging me, so I had to try take some test shots from inside my car, at home and while waiting for wifey… >> read more


Lo Batt -.-

Written by • May 16th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
My battery is running very low now as I’m typing this. After having one too many beer last night and waking up early morning to bring my family to the zoo … I haven’t really got any rest since my eyes opened this morning. We had great time at the zoo but unfortunately the ‘Mini Explorer’ thingie which we usually rent to cart Fitzand around was ‘out of stock’. That caused me to be his replacement ‘vehicle’ at the zoo and after about 5 hours there … I drove home… >> read more


Lensbabies + K-x : A Test

Written by • May 11th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
After a short break from using my Lensbaby, finally I’ve ‘migrated’ the cool lenses to Pentax mount and since the K-x will be almost ‘permanently married’ to the Lensbabies … I had to give it a test run to figure out how the camera will meter with the lenses. Lugged the setup to Malaysia during the weekend … hoping to be able to find time to take some shots and get used to the new combo … time somehow zapped past real fast and I ended up with only a… >> read more


Change Of Mount

Written by • May 2nd, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Guess some of you might already know that I picked up a white Pentax K-x while I was in Japan … just to use with my Lensbabies. Unfortunately the Pentax mount that Lensbaby was supposed to send me has not arrive when I left for Japan … so I couldn’t test/use it there. Anyway … it arrived when I was away and I got it installed the day before. I decided to take a couple of snapshots … in case anyone would be interested. Each lens mount is held by… >> read more


LB Soft Focus Optic : Analogue Test

Written by • Jan 3rd, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
After some initial test with my DSLR, I decided to try out the Lensbaby Soft Focus Optic (SFO) on my cheap old film SLR. I know that the Lensbaby lenses can work very well on that SLR but I was a little worried about the metering when using the SFO. This is because of the many weird ‘holes’ (ie. apertures) on the aperture disc. I found my SLR already loaded with a roll of Reala 100 film and had a few shots already taken … and took me a while… >> read more


Lensbaby FE and SF : Unboxing

Written by • Dec 24th, 2009 • Category: Toys
Finally I made it … taking the first step into changing my lifestyle a little by resisting all invitations to go for some X’mas dinners and drinking! I know my plan to start a change is supposed to be from the 1st of January 2010, but I thought I could start doing a little bit of ‘rehearsal’ now. Hahaha! I took my family out for a short nice dinner and came home to play with Fitzand. I also did the unboxing of the 3 ‘toys’ that Lensbaby sent me recently… >> read more
