Tuning Up For The New Year

Written by • Jan 21st, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Finally I put the (very little) effort to try shove in a little AF fine tuning adjustment to my K5 paired with 85mm lens. I’ve always had this feeling that it is back/front focusing a little but couldn’t bothered to fine tune it (until today) and after a few minutes of testing and tweaking … eventually a +2 value for the AF fine tuning seems necessary for this solid old lens. Since I’m sort of ‘grounded’ today … the only ‘target’ I could test the AF fine adjustment on …… >> read more


Ndroo Vs F & Z

Written by • Feb 8th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Arrived back here in Singapore around dinner time. Spent almost a week in Malaysia with my folks … celebrating the Lunar New Year. The best part of this yearly celebration is always knowing that the two little ones (Fitzand and his cousin sister) are definitely gonna turn the house upside down with their noise/cries/laughter/shouts etc … and of course not forgetting the beer sessions with my brother. 😀 I tried to get some snapshots of the two little ones and I seriously find it super duper difficult to get them… >> read more


Approaching Four

Written by • Dec 5th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Weeks to go before Fitzand turns 4. Time really flies eh? I wanted to take a few snaps of him with his new toy gun … and asked if he’d like to have his photos taken. He looked at me for a while and ran to my room … went to my desk … reached for my Instanx Mini cam (that he saw a couple of nights ago) and picked it up. I knew some film were gonna be burned. *sweat*. Here are some self-portraits by him … This one… >> read more

The yummies! #1 alkie … my brother Of course not forgetting his partner in crime getting drunk … Mr. Low … It has been some weeks since I has had any film to… >> read more


Be Very Afraid!

Written by • Oct 21st, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
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


Bedtime Instax Fun

Written by • Oct 21st, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
One of the things that all parents wouldn’t wanna hear is when their kiddos go ‘I don’t wanna sleep yet!’ during bedtime. Fitzand said that to me just now and instead of the usual ‘tactics’ like telling him a story, reading him a book, telling him that I’ll bring him out to play on Saturday etc … I asked if he’d like me to take a photo of him … since he was wearing a mask (see below). He immediately agreed and I was a little surprised (as he usually… >> read more


Open Your Eyes! Smile!

Written by • Aug 8th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Was out with my family to Clarke Quay area for late lunch and thought maybe we should slack there until dinner time so that Fitzand can have some outdoor fun there … watching the boats and running around. We had some yummy Japanese food (ramen!) there and then while wifey went for some shopping … Fitzand and I loitered around and of course I tried to take some photos of him to cure my trigger-happy fingers. Played with my Spinner for a while but ended up shooting digital with the… >> read more


F3 And FE2

Written by • Jul 3rd, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
It has been weeks since the personal warranty period given to me by the guy who sold me the minty F3 is over and I’ve just (finally) finished the test roll on it. Things got a bit slow (the test roll) and I had to take a risk and hoped that the camera works fine … and it was quite a good thing to see that at least the metering still works great. This test roll is a long expired Mitsubishi 200 film which I pretty like and I remember… >> read more


Passport Photo Fun!

Written by • Jun 27th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
It was perhaps a few years ago when I traded a Seagull TLR with a friend’s Fujifilm FP-14. That cool, big and cool looking passport camera was given to him by someone and he didn’t see much use in it … so we traded. After that … I used it only a couple of times because the film for it ain’t cheap. *sweat* Recently I bought 5 packs of the FP-100B film … for use with my instant pinhole camera (that I’ve yet to finish modifying!) made using a Polaroid… >> read more


Newbie Made It!

Written by • Apr 5th, 2010 • Category: Others
I recently registered an account with Lomography’s website for Fitzand and uploaded some of the photos he took in their gallery. Soon after that, I saw a photo rumble asking for submissions of newbies’ self portraits and of course I helped him submit one from this recent Fisheye2 roll of self portraits. Today the results were announced and … He made it!!! Yay!!! Guess he won’t understand too much of it when I explain to it to him later tonight but I’m gonna give him my Fisheye2 cam as a… >> read more
