The Digital Diana aka Rhianna

Written by • Dec 16th, 2014 • Category: Toys
They promised to produce and deliver the Rhianna camera (originally called the ‘digital Diana camera’ when they were seeking for crowd funding to build it) by Christmas and sure enough it landed on my desk last week. Well … it is more like a digital Mini Diana instead of the medium format Diana cameras as the camera looks almost identical to a Diana mini. Here is a quick first look at it (since I am very busy with everything else). I have no time to take photos of the actual… >> read more


Instant Birthday

Written by • Jan 9th, 2013 • Category: Fun with film
It is never a good idea bringing Fitzand to the camera shops as he will make me buy him some Instax Mini film with cartoon frames. The last trip to ThirtySix with him resulted in the purchase of a few packs of those cute film but I’ve been forgetting to use them til last weekend … on his birthday. He was delighted to see me loading the pack of film after I finished a couple of remaining plain frame ones. It is a little too early for Chinese New Year… >> read more


Be Very Afraid!

I don’t mean to scare anyone out there but these are some of my test/experimental shots I did just now with my Instax Mini 55i and an Optrixx Camera (given to me by the famous Cyanwater). The Optrixx Camera isn’t really a camera, but rather a traditional optical amusement thingie. Since the Instax camera isn’t the type where you can actually see what the lens ‘sees’, it was a matter of trying out and pray something turns out okay. The Optrixx … a cool present from Auntie Cyanwater 😛 I… >> read more


4 Seconds Etc.

Written by • Jul 31st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Plans to go the park today had to be changed because after a short baking lesson (for Fitzand at the childcare), we were all too tired to go out. So we slacked at home, had some fun playing and then I looked outside and saw what great weather it was for photography! Oh no! I didn’t wanna leave home for some photos and so decided to whip out my GRD III for some time lapse photography from my window. Well … this is the 1st time I’m trying to do… >> read more


Week Ending 23rd May

Written by • May 24th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Finally I have a bit of time to sit down and update my blog after a very busy weekend. I was recovering from a (bad!) hangover this morning and thank God after some many litres of fruit juice … I’m okay now. This entry is gonna be quite long because I’m trying to squeeze all the stuffs (and photos) into just one entry. 😛 It must be because I’m old and outdated … little did I know that kiddo shoes now come with built-in racing cars. Yeah! Cars inside! Hahaha!… >> read more


The Tiny Temptation

Written by • Mar 18th, 2010 • Category: Others
It was in 2007, during a trip to Japan … that on a cold (very cold!) night … I walked into a shop and bought the Minox DCC5.0. That was after struggling for a while with myself … trying to decide if I should buy one. Eventually the dark side won and soon the little cutie was in my hands. It is the year 2010 now and I think I have used the camera … for maybe less than 10 times! Nothing too big deal about that until this came… >> read more


Inside The Cutie

Written by • Feb 22nd, 2010 • Category: Others
I’ve always wondered what’s it like inside the cute FDC01 toy digital camera and since my fingers were pretty itchy today … I decided to carefully open up the camera to peek inside. It wasn’t hard at all, with all the 4 screws securing the outer ‘casing’ easily accessible on both the sides. Within seconds, the little cutie was ‘torn apart’. Here’s what’s inside the FDC01 … Cool? Hahaha! Okay … nothing much to play with inside and I’m not about to brick the camera just yet by trying to… >> read more


The Sexy And The Ugly

Written by • Feb 2nd, 2010 • Category: Toys
After a very short stay with me, the Lumix FT1 camera was sold off because I somehow find the photos from it … horrible. Not sure if I got a lemon unit but the photos from it doesn’t seem to be of any good. Considering my already very low requirements from a compact camera, that one was quite a hopeless case. Anyway, after I recently sold off my Canon IVsb old rangefinder, I had some spare cash on hand and decided to burn it on a new digital toy. I… >> read more


Dressing Up The LC-A+

Written by • Jan 7th, 2010 • Category: Others
Not too long ago, I read that Lomography is inviting submissions of designs for a special edition LC-A+ camera and we are allowed to use all sorts of ideas, material etc etc to come out with our own versions of the camera. Not having any knowledge in designing nor good at it … I still thought I could try shove in a couple of ideas and see if miracles can happen. Hahaha! Winning a trip to Lomo HQ in Vienna and a few copies of the camera … are good… >> read more


Light It Up Camera

Written by • Dec 22nd, 2009 • Category: Toys
We’ve seen cameras ‘disguised’ as fruit juice boxes, books, cigarette boxes and all sorts of fancy stuffs. Little did I know that there is even one ‘disguised’ as a cigarette lighter! Looks cute and neat but I’ve yet to see any sample photo/video from it. Pull off the top part of the ‘lighter’ and it looks just like an USB thumb drive. It even has a 4GB memory built-in for lots of photos & video fun. Not sure if this toy is suitable for school kids though. They might get… >> read more
