Glitter Rocket

Written by • Apr 23rd, 2011 • Category: Others
During my recent trip to visit my folks in Malaysia, I packed along my Sprocket Rocket thinking I could fire some rolls there but as I was lurking around the paint section in a hardware shop … I suddenly had an idea to create something a little different as a present for my friend Jimmy (from ThirtySix). I saw some gold paint and thought maybe I could give my Sprocket Rocket a new look and give it to him (and soon go buy a brand new one from him again).… >> read more

Stigma : The Last Shot

Written by • May 27th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Found an old (and dead) Polaroid EE100 in my drawer last night and suddenly I remembered that there should be some film left in there. That pack of FP-100C was in there ages ago when I tried modifying the dead camera into a pinhole one but the mod got abandoned when little Fitzand arrived in this world … 3 years ago! Poor EE100 … ready to be wheeled into the operating theater but I am still too busy to complete the mod. Notice the lens already ripped out but the… >> read more

Yashica EZ F521 : A Review

Written by • Nov 1st, 2009 • Category: Others
Some of you might remember that I recently blogged about this camera that some call ‘the digital Holga’. There wasn’t any sample photos or details about the kind of photo it produces, so I guess most of the interest were kept in the ‘let’s just wait for some reviews’ department. A friend just sent me this link that has a short video review as well as some sample photos taken with this retro looking digital camera. So how does it (not) perform? Check this video out … Interesting? Here’s the… >> read more

Infrared With G6

Written by • May 31st, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
The last time I took IR photographs was probably using a Canon 20D modified by some experts and I’ve never touched IR since because I sold the camera off. The 20D wasn’t my first IR camera. I (foolishly & bravely) modified 2 units of Canon G2 before but sold them off to friends later on. As I was cleaning my cabinet, I found an old Canon G6 and thought I could maybe try modifying it for IR too. Usually doing such modification is one bloody risky business. I will need… >> read more

Holga 120WPC (Wide Pinhole Camera). If I remember correctly, I’ve only used it three times since I bought it because getting 6 shots (only) out of a roll fo 120 film is a bit too costly. Well if I were to be any better and be able to get 6 perfect (or decent) shots out of every roll … then I won’t be complaining. I decided to perform some ‘operation’ on it and turn it into a 35mm camera. The next question is … HOW? I hate the idea of… >> read more
