eBay, eBoy

An hour ago … while playing with Fitzand in his room and he was typing away on his imaginary computer … when he suddenly turned over and asked ‘Daddy! You want to buy a camera?’. I was a little puzzled but soon I realised it could be because sometimes when he comes bugging me while I’m at my computer … I’ll be surfing the ‘net looking at cameras. πŸ˜€ Oh no! Hahaha! So I promptly said ‘Yes … I want a camera.’. My little boss with my netbook. No …… >> read more


Unboxing Tori

Written by • Dec 30th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I shiver whenever I hear my name being called while waiting at a dentist queue but it is a totally different story when I hear my name being called while I’m busy pounding my keyboard at my work desk. Of course the voice (of the person calling my name) must be from a stranger … and that is usually … the postman! A large parcel arrived today (a little late for Christmas but who’s complaining?!) and it in … the Tori Amos special edition Diana F+ camera! I was dead… >> read more

Early X’mas Presents

Written by • Nov 27th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I remember a couple of years back, my first Christmas present for that year came early … in the form of a package from Lensbaby. This year … it is like deja vu … a juicy parcel landed at my office the day I started work after my short vacation! That made the first day at work (a little) better. πŸ˜€ Too bad it was too late for my trip, otherwise I’d have lugged my DSLR with the (Lens)babies along. Anyway … there is always a next vacation. πŸ˜€ There… >> read more


Black + White Arrived

Written by • Aug 5th, 2010 • Category: Lead Story
The postman came knocking today and handed me a parcel from Japan. Yeah … I was pretty excited to receive it because in it … the white edition of the Fujifilm Natura Classica! I struggled for a short while when I heard about this white version and decided to *cough* break my piggy bank for one. I’m pretty broke now and wifey’s gonna kill me when she sees next month’s credit card bill. Sexy in white! For those living outside Japan, you can get your Classica from the Circle Rectangle… >> 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


Spinner : First Look

Written by • Jun 16th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I know it ain’t cheap but I thought to spend about S$200 on such a special newly invented weird camera is worth the pain. Well that’s what I thought … until some friend told me it is more like a copy of another camera. Huh? Really? I’ve never seen one! So he gave meΒ this link and some four letter words came out flying from my filthy mouth. πŸ˜› I must be blind or do I not see this Spinshot 35S being mentioned in the ‘History of 360 Photography’ section… >> read more


OMG!

It is past midnight now and I’ve clocked like 39 years on this earth. Yeah … I’ve just celebrated my 39th birthday on earth yesterday. What I planned to be just simple dinner with my family turned out to be a little bit more special with my buddies turning up at a nearby restaurant/bar with dinner and some booze. What really made my birthday super special was something I received from Noreen … a good friend who is really great at her craft and arts stuffs. OMG! I just made… >> read more


Cherry Coke Cam!

Written by • Mar 11th, 2010 • Category: Toys
After avoiding e(vil)Bay for a long long time, I finally went in to lurk around lately because I have some money in my PayPal account. Came across this tiny Cherry Coca-cola 110 camera and it was going for about US$1.50 … and so I placed my bid for it and waited. Somehow nobody seemed interested in this little old cutie and so I won it! Yipee! Now I have another old Coke camera to add to my collection. I remember getting all ‘addicted’ to these old Coke cameras years before… >> 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
