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.

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
