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 photos … as I was too lazy to clone out all of them. 😛 You can actually see and compose the scene on the LCD if you are shooting out in the sun. Indoors …… >> read more

SLR Magic Pinhole For M43

Written by • Feb 1st, 2012 • Category: Toys
I sold off my Wanderlust Pinwide some time ago in anticipation of this one from SLR Magic and after some waiting … finally it came knocking at my door yesterday. The company has yet to officially sell this sexy pinhole ‘lens’ … so this is a special preview and I’ve no idea of the pricing yet. Introducing the SLR Magic Pinhole for Micro 4/3 (M43) cameras! Here are some photos of the unboxing process … The SLR Magic Toy Lens Pinhole comes in cute little box that has a similar… >> read more

Toy Lens Fun In Malaysia

Written by • Apr 18th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Finally home from a short trip to Malaysia. Usually I have a bit more time for photography there as my parents will help entertain Fitzand a little … while I can have a little peace of mind to snap away. Here are some digital ones taken using the SLR Magic Toy Lens and extension tube combo … on my E-P1. There were supposed to be more photos but somehow I was ‘inspired’ to work on something pretty ermm … special during this trip there. I can’t mention or post photos… >> read more

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 is so tiny … but I was wrong. You can actually see (though not 100% clear) what you are shooting. That makes things a bit easier but somehow takes away a bit of the fun… >> read more

Wanderlust Pinwide!

Written by • Apr 6th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Quite some time back, a friend sent me a link about backing a new product, a pinhole cap for the Micro 4/3 cameras … and after some consideration … I killed some money in my PayPal account and waited (not very) patiently. What we did was pledge a certain amount of money … and if they hit the required amount, they’ll start producing it. Great news came one day when they updated us saying that they’ve met the amount and some prototypes were being made. Finally my pledge of US$39… >> read more

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

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

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

Haircut Drama

Written by • Dec 20th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Fitzand loves spending time at his grandparents’ place in Malaysia and since the childcare was closed last Friday, a trip to Malaysia for a long(er) weekend seemed to be a good idea. He had lots of fun playing there and my mom was saying that Fitzand needs a haircut. Perhaps trim a little on all sides. Hmm. Despite hearing the ‘horror stories’ of how I struggled/sweat to convince him to let me trim his hair … how I only manage to snip off a small part (of the hair) at… >> read more
