Exercising The GF670

Written by • Nov 7th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
After some months of ‘rest’, my Fujifilm GF670 got to go out for some fun again. This roll of long expired Fujifilm Pro 160s had a few exposures … ermm … exposed … and I was trying to finish shooting it. I am beginning to think that I should shoot only 120 film as I have way too little time for photography nowdays. 🙁 There was a small problem with the folding mechanism some months back … but after a close inspection … apparently it was something I dropped that… >> read more

X-100 All Dressed Up

Written by • May 23rd, 2011 • Category: Toys
Finally time to post some photos of my X-100 … all ‘dressed up’ and looking pretty. Yeah I know … I know … it ain’t a rangefinder but just a ‘Casio rangefinder’ (a friend calls it that) that tries to look like a retro camera. 😀 Let’s not go there. Sorry if the colors of the case looks different in all the photos. Hahaha! I was in a rush to go fetch my boy from school and had only 5 minutes to snap some photos without much time to mess… >> read more

Fuzzyeyeballs Vs RF

Written by • Aug 31st, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Some of you might already know that I ain’t one who can use a rangefinder camera properly. Blame my old fuzzy eyeballs … I usually have problem focusing with that little patch in the viewfinder. Hahaha! I’ve tried several rangefinders (without film in them) and concluded that I might go blind if I ever finish shooting 36 frames in one. Recently a friend passed me his Bessa R2A and told me to give it a try. I knew it will be quite a challenge but for the fun (and pain)… >> read more

Written by • Jul 19th, 2010 • Category: Lead Story
For those who are interested in picking up a rangefinder camera or those who are just curious about what a rangefinder is all about, there will be a rangefinder introduction showcase and talk on the 6th August 2010 at the Glass Hall, Singapore Art Museum. I ain’t part of this community (yet) because I ain’t got no rangefinder camera … but just helping a friend spread the word (and poison). 😀 I’m wondering if I can find time to attend it but at the same time … I’m worried about… >> read more

When Old Meets New

Written by • Dec 30th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Dug out a beautiful condition Canon IVsb rangefinder camera from my cabinet just the other day to give the (cloth) shutter some workout. This time I loaded a roll of cheap expired negative to give it another round of exercise but managed to only shoot 4 shots. Hahaha! Damn. I have a big problem with the tiny viewfinder on that super old and cool looking camera. Suddenly I got an idea to put that camera + lens to better use. I can use that lens on my E-P1!!! I’ve read… >> read more

I thought the white Olympus E-P1 was cool … until I saw this! A way crazy sexy cool all white Leica M8! This is a limited edition of 275 and comes a silver 28mm Elmarit-M ASPH lens, a white edition strap and an E39 UV/IR filter. The full set price is listed at $8,500 USD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll just keep these photos as eye candy and not dare to even dream of buying one. Is white the ‘in’ thing now for cameras? Honestly, despite the fact that I love white cameras that… >> read more
