I Love My Bicycle!

Written by • Mar 28th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Another lovely Sunday spent with my family. Woke up early to bring Fitzand to the park for his regular run/cycle outing before settling down for breakfast. Fingers felt a little itchy, so I brought along my Harinezumi 2 for some random video captures. Unfortunately the rechargable battery was a little cranky … it suddenly died even while the battery indicator was showing full bar. A few attempts to resurrect it failed … and it was soon showing an empty battery indicator. Duh! I forgot to bring alone my other rechargable… >> read more

Welcome Home 120

Written by • Dec 25th, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
After a long absence from shooting 120 film, this roll of Agfa Portrait 160 loaded into my Holga was supposed to be a ‘welcome’ back for me into the world of medium format. I’ll be shooting much more using 120 film come 2010. What was supposed to be a few rolls of images shot in Malaysia few weeks back … ended up only half a roll was completed. These first few were taken when were we in Kuala Lumpur … This one below is my favourite from the roll. Nevermind… >> read more

The Art Of Waiting

Written by • Dec 4th, 2009 • Category: Others
The lady from accounts department handed me a letter today and I burst into laughter. No … not a letter from my boss saying that I got an increment (something I’ve lost contact with). It was a letter from Canada and on it … it was written ‘The Art Of Waiting’. What’s so funny about that? I was waiting (impatiently) for a parcel to arrive. The parcel is suppose to be a replacement hard disk from Seagate and since I will be on leave for a week from tomorrow …… >> read more

Diana MPO [more]

Written by • Jun 23rd, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
Here are the remaining two rolls from the Diana Multi Pinhole Camera. To be honest … I thought this might be another camera that might be used a couple of times before being left sleeping on the shelf … but I was wrong. I love this camera! It will definitely be one that will be used pretty often but for the next roll … I’m gonna experiment with more stuffs with it and see how much more fun I can squeeze outta it. A friend asked me if I could… >> read more

Diana MPO

Written by • Jun 22nd, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
The Lomography’s Diana Multi Pinhole Operator is a pinhole camera that allows a selection of 1, 2 or 3 pinholes to create some rather interesting/cool/bizarre photos. Those clever guys topped it with a set of colored ‘filters’ (6 of them to be exact) to let you paint your pinhole photos with crazy wild colours. Sounds like just another over-priced crappy toy from Lomography … some might say. Being a sucker for their Diana F+ camera, I took the plunge and got me one of these rather weird pinhole camera to… >> read more

Film : The making of

Written by • Jun 4th, 2009 • Category: Others
Ever wondered how the rolls of film we happily load into our cameras are made? To be honest … I’ve never bothered to ask myself that question and when I recently came across this video on how film is made … I am pretty glad I now know a little bit more than ‘that dark strip of plastic looking thing’ that I load into my camera. 😀 Check out the cool video here.… >> read more

Ran. Lub.

Written by • May 12th, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
Random Lubitel shots … Something I do sometimes when I need to kill time … random shots at random places. These were mostly taken when I was in Malaysia a couple of weeks ago. I’m begining to like the Lubitel 166+ more and more. Unfortunately, apart from a shameless self-portrait, I did not do any double exposure (which I love) this time. For a while … I thought that those black dots are ‘dust bunnies’ on the photo above. Haha. Maybe I am missing my DSLR and about time to… >> read more

Lubitel Randoms

Written by • Mar 12th, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
Here are the photos from the 2nd roll on the Lubitel 166+ last weekend. Nothing fancy, just some test shots to make sure the camera is in good health. I’m begining to love using that plasticky TLR more and I’m even considering bringing it for my short vacation this month end. Hmm. But then it might be a bit too bulky and troublesome. It’s Thursday night and I can’t wait for tomorrow to pass quickly so I can embrace the weekend again with open arms. Hehehe. It’s gonna be another… >> read more

Flexaret VII

Written by • Feb 17th, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
Camerapedia has this to say about this Flexaret VII camera … The Flexaret VII is the last in a series of TLR cameras made by Meopta (and its predecessors)in the former Czechoslovakia. It’s a fully mechanical camera with an all-metal body. It has a solid feel to it and has lots of features not normally found on TLR cameras. For example: you can set the light value on a mechanical ring. This sets a series combinations of shutter speeds and diaphragms. When you decide you need to stop down the… >> read more

Funky old fella!

Written by • Mar 17th, 2008 • Category: Fun with film
My first encounter with a TLR camera was about 2 years ago when I got myself a cheap Lubitel. It was a disaster … my first two rolls from it ended up in the trash bin. I took a risk and bought an old Chinese TLR from the 60s, the Pearl River camera and wasn’t very hopeful that anything decent will come out from it. Oh well … I loaded in an expired roll of slides on it and tested it out today. I was really happy to see the… >> read more
