The Good, The Tragic

Written by • Mar 24th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Celebrating their ‘One Impossible Year’, the Impossible Project recently launched a pair of special edition PX600 UV+ film … the Black Frame Edition & Grey Frame Edition. Lucky me … I managed to intoxicate the guy from ThirtySix with lots of beer last week and grabbed myself a ‘sample pack’. Hahahaha! Don’t let him you know this trick. Okay? 😀 Perhaps I should stay away from these (pretty expensive) cool film. Why? I’m always making big mistakes when handling the Polaroid cams. Duh. I wasted two on some very boring… >> 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


Toy Cameras : The Book

Written by • Mar 1st, 2011 • Category: Others
The postman arrived today with a book titled ‘Toy Cameras’ by Kevin Meredith (aka lomokev). As I was having (just another) hell-ish day at work, I couldn’t wait til I get home to sip some coffee (no beer!) and enjoy browsing it. It is a very nicely designed book, filled with lots of information about toy cameras as well as lots and lots of photos taken by those cameras. Ahem! Ermm … I was invited to contribute some photos for the Diana Multi Pinhole camera section! 😀 It feels so… >> read more


Go On! Take My Life!

Written by • Jan 27th, 2011 • Category: Others
I saw the ‘Love Is In The Air’ special edition of the Diana Mini before I went to bed and said to myself that luckily it ain’t a Diana F+ instead. My credit card bill for the Tori edition has not even arrive and I wouldn’t wanna see another edition of Diana F+ causing more damage to my wallet. I must admit that I got a little excited when I saw the cool looking flash. Luckily I ain’t into the Minis. 😛 So I happily went to bed but when… >> read more


DigitaLIZA : First Look

Written by • Jul 15th, 2010 • Category: Others
Finally a solution for those of us who like scanning photos which has the sprocket holes areas exposed! The DigitaLIZA from Lomography. The solution came just in time … as the new fun Spinner 360 churns out super long frames with exposed sprocket holes that make scanning and stitching the frames a really painful process (especially for people like me who has not much patience sitting in front of the computer doing post processing). I was expecting a delay in the shipment of mine because Lomo Asia’s online store stated… >> read more


Classica In White!

Written by • May 27th, 2010 • Category: Others
“OMG” appearing on MSN Messenger is something I don’t like to see too often … especially when it comes from Mijonju (yeah … the devil again!). This is what he showed me … Yeah! OMG! A limited edition white Natura Classica camera! I was told that it is a limited edition of only 3000 units and I was told that pre orders are snapping up the units real fast. No price is available yet but it should cost a bit more than the normal Classica cameras. I don’t own a… >> read more


Blur Is Perfect!

Written by • Apr 6th, 2010 • Category: Others
A couple of weeks ago, I came across this really cool photo book at FourCornersDark website and from a few sample pages … I fell in love with it. Blurfect. Yeah! Blur! Blur is beautiful and I’m a sucker for such photos. The book layout is simple yet elegant … and costs only US$10 each. It states in the website that there is a ‘Edition of 100-signed/numbered’ copies but I don’t know if there are only 100 of them for sale. I got number 53 and 55 in the mail… >> read more


Toys R Them!

Written by • Dec 31st, 2009 • Category: Others
Since I can’t sleep and waiting to try shoot the New Year eve fireworks at midnight … I thought I’ll just add the (really) last entry for the year. I love doing online shopping and happened to come across this local web store that specializes in toys (for kids … not the usual ‘toys’ (aka cameras) I buy for myself) called Lamkins. I contacted them not too long ago … looking for a Thomas & Friends character toy because I couldn’t find it in a couple of Toys R Us… >> read more


Pancake + Pancake

Written by • Oct 13th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I’ve always thought the Olympus E-P1 is a very good camera and thought the 17mm f2.8 pancake lens is the only one I’ll ever own for use on it. Unfortunately … along came Panasonic and their GF1, another Micro 4/3 system camera and with it … comes a bright Lumix 20mm f1.7 pancake lens that sent a tsunami into my bank balance. Duh! The lens is not available here in Singapore yet (except when buying it with the camera body), so after quite some consideration … I decided to get… >> read more


Almost Free!

Written by • Sep 17th, 2009 • Category: Toys
Right after the clown colored CMYK Diana F+ was released, being the sucker I’ve always been … I placed an order for it because I had 70 piggies (US$ credit) with them. So in minutes the order was placed. Minutes later, I changed my mind. I wanted to maybe change it to the bundle with the Diana Mini and perhaps a Gorillapod. So I quickly login to cancel the order before it is processed and luckily I was able to do so. I clicked the ‘cancel order’ button and guess… >> read more
