Few Randoms From Korea

Written by • Apr 21st, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
Eight days on a vacation in Korea … and I came back with tons of photos of Fitzand, few random shots from the streets (digital) and exposed just 2 rolls of film. Don’t ask me where did my trigger happy habit went. If you happen to see it … give me a call. Anyway … while I am struggling to go through the tons of photos of Fitzand … here are the other random shots I took … mostly street photos that I snapped one evening when the mood came.… >> read more


Test Driving The Sony RX1

Written by • Feb 25th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
So this is one hell of an expensive camera … one that has caused much excitement (and disappointment about the price) with a full frame sensor and a killer lens. I took one for a short test drive to see how awesome it is and managed to capture a handful of photos today. Street photography is fun with this almost silent camera. The 35mm lens makes it a wonderful tool for street photography. Colors are pretty awesome although I prefer using the ‘neutral’ setting instead of the ‘standard’ one. I’ll… >> read more


The Damages

Written by • Nov 17th, 2012 • Category: Toys
We decided to skip the trip to the Bandai museum as I read that it only opens to pubic on weekends and Fitzand is only interested to check out the Power Rangers stuffs. As an alternative, we brought him to Hakuhinkan Toy Park near Ginza … one of the largest and best toy stores here in Tokyo. As expected … he was complaining about the long walk and train rides but this time a lot less because I promised to buy him toys. 😀 He saw many of his favourite… >> read more


The ‘Now What?’ Shots

Written by • Nov 15th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Very often I get bored and whip out my camera for some random shots. Then I’ll go back … look at them and go ‘now what?!’. That’s one big problem I have because I do not know what to do with many of the images I shoot. Most of them will involve landscapes though. Hahaha! Since I’m killing some time now while gulping a beer in the hotel room (Fitzand has gone to bed … phew!) … I ‘forced’ myself to upload a few of these ‘now what?’ photos. This… >> read more


RX100 Skinned

Written by • Oct 10th, 2012 • Category: Toys
Probably the only ‘problem’ I find with the Sony DSC-RX100 … the way too slippery matt black surface of the camera body. Maybe it is just my fat clumsy fingers but I sure wished it has some form of rubber/leather skin to make holding it easier. Of course to be safe … I always use a wrist strap with it. I saw some shots (here in Singapore) selling some skins (not sure if they are leather or rubber though) but from the photos I saw (of the cam and skin)… >> read more


Day At The Opera

Written by • Sep 30th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
As part of the Moonfest 2012, the ‘Discovering Chinese Opera’ workshop was meant to introduce the art of Chinese opera to the young ones. It was a parent-child workshop and so after yesterday’s ‘The legend of Nezha’ performance … today I took Fitzand to the Esplanade again for the Chinese opera workshop. It was pretty interesting except for the first half an hour (or more) when the speaker was busy telling us that he is a local TV actor blah blah blah and some pretty weak slides (eg. which ministers/actors… >> read more


Test Driving The RX100

Written by • Sep 30th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Left without a compact digital camera (no … the Leica X1 doesn’t fit into my pockets!) for some time, I got a little ‘poisoned’ when a good friend was trying to CONvince me to buy his Sony DSC-RX100 as he is moving to *evil grin* the Fujifilm X-Pro1. After reading some many good reviews about this compact camera … pretty much convinced that it performs darn well for a compact camera … I met up with him over beer recently. My first impression of the RX100 … light and so… >> read more


Roar! Splish Splash!

Written by • Jan 6th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
While waiting for the lab to finish processing the couple of rolls that I’ve sent it … and getting them scanned tonight … I thought maybe I could just post up this very short random video clip that I took yesterday at the zoo. Fitzand had a blast there (as you can see from the clips at the pool) and ended up with some new animal toys (again?!) as additional birthday presents. I think he had way too much fun. He was having some dreams about animals (or toy animals)… >> 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. 😀 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. 😀 There… >> read more


Another Digital Weekend

Written by • Aug 16th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
If you are wondering why I’ve not been posting much (or any) photos from my analogue cams … hahahaha …. no … I’ve not given up or retired (yet). It is just that I loaded one too many cameras with film and now struggling to complete them. I’ve been rotating between the cameras to make sure I treat them all equally and thus the long wait. So while waiting for the rolls to be completed, I’m taking some digital snapshots … of course 99.99% of the time … the subject… >> read more
