On The Streets With Q

Written by • Apr 14th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Finally Saturday is here and I can give the Pentax Q a test run. Unfortunately … while I was holding it without a wrist strap (duh!), Fitzand knocked it off my hand and now the cute little Q has some scars. Thank God it still functions well. I did some low light shots to test how the little sensor performs but I’ll post them later. So far I find the low light performance is pretty good despite the tiny sensor but if you wanna know more accurate info about it… >> read more


Failed But Happy

Written by • Aug 21st, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
This entry is supposed to be about 2 tests/experiments with film that I tried out today in between all the busy tasks … but unfortunately I screwed up one of them and still couldn’t figure out the second one. Well … I’ll try again tomorrow or another day. I’ll just post these few snapshots I took of Fitzand today while out shopping. He had a wonderful time as usual and I picked up a free Sony iPod/iPhone dock for him so that he can play his favorite songs from my… >> read more


LC-W : Streetshoot Tests

Written by • Jun 22nd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Gave the LC-W a test run on the streets recently and as a conclusion … I think being so super wide makes things very challenging. I remember being not too far from the subjects but the photos seem to show that the people (aka subjects) are further away. Good thing is that the wideness of the lens helps capture most of the ‘action’ even though sometimes I just roughly hold the camera up and snap without looking thru the viewfinder. The lens on the LC-W is pretty darn sharp and… >> read more


Happy Father’s Day!

Written by • Jun 19th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
It was just like yesterday that I posted a blog entry that had a photo of a little ‘badge’ that Fitzand made me last year for Father’s Day 2010. I remember the ‘badge’ said that I am #1 and he was going ‘you are #1!!!’ in public … making me wanna go hide under some table. One year later … I still think I’m #1 … yeah … #1 to collapse from the ever tiring task of entertaining him. The card he made me this year (of course with the… >> read more

Good news for all the Lomography/toy camera lovers here in Singapore! Just got notified by ThirtySix that they are having a super great sale from 10th June to 10th July 2011! So what’s the bad news? The bad news is only for our wallets and credit cards! Hey … but then … why not? 😀 They are also having a ‘private film sale’ tonight at 8pm to 9pm. Hmm … maybe I’ll drop by, pick up a bucket of film and then get them to buy me a bucket of… >> read more


eBay, eBoy

Written by • May 15th, 2011 • Category: Others
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. 😀 Oh no! Hahaha! So I promptly said ‘Yes … I want a camera.’. My little boss with my netbook. No …… >> read more


Toy Lens : Fun?

Written by • Mar 5th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Since my last blog entry about the Toy Lens from SLR Magic, I got some requests for more sample photos and also a couple of questions … asking if I do find it fun. I decided to give up trying to write a review about this lens because … ermm … I can’t write well … I ain’t good at doing reviews … and ermmm …. I will just end up saying ‘Buy this lens! It is fun!’. 😀 Focal length : 26mm (52mm on m4/3) Aperture : f1.4 –… >> read more


Deciding On The Decided

Written by • Jan 19th, 2011 • Category: Others
Stumbled upon some images of this Philip Stein watch from their ceramic collection online recently and decided to get one for wifey. Her birthday is still a month away but I decided to get it for her now anyway and hopefully she’ll like it. The guy at the boutique told me that the watch has Natural Frequency Technology inside (WTH is that?!) that helps give better sleep and relaxes the mind (really?). I asked if he has anything that helps one stay awake … and he offered me coffee. Duh!… >> read more


12 Frames Here & There

Written by • Jan 7th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Something shocking happened during my trip to Taiwan recently. I opened up my camera bag … removed the back from my Diana F+ and … OMG!!! I forgot to bring along an empty 120 spool and also the bottom plate that holds the roll of film in place! I removed it to install the instant back some time ago but forgot to place it back! Oh no! For a second my plan to fire at least a roll with the camera went up in smoke. A few seconds later I… >> read more


Christmas 2010

Written by • Dec 25th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Merry Christmas!!! Some find it hard to believe that I turned down invitations to go grab some beer last night (on Xmas eve) but it is very true that I made the decision to spend the evening at home with my family instead. Good boy eh? 😀 We just got back from some shopping and lunch at Orchard Rd and Fitzand got himself some new toys as early birthday presents. It is about 2 weeks to go til his 4th birthday but we decided to let him pick his presents… >> read more
