Battle Of The Wides

Written by • Jul 23rd, 2011 • Category: Others
Some friends asked me about which Lomo/toy camera should they go for if they wanna shoot wide. In the past, I’d tell them to either get the LC-A+ with the wide angle lens attachment or the (way cheaper but needs lots more light and careful usage) Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim (UWS) (also rebranded as the Superheadz’s Wide Lens Camera). Now with the introduction of few newer cameras from Lomography, it is harder to answer that question (which wide angle cam to go for). We now have the LC-Wide, La… >> read more

Spinning Buddy

Written by • Jun 20th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
I’m back spinning with my spinning buddy (aka my little boss aka Fitzand)! I’m shy by nature (yeah really!) and hate to be in photographs … but the Spinner leaves me no choice but to rope in Fitzand most of the time when I’m using it. This roll took pretty long to finish because I’m always too lazy to lug around the clumsy Spinner but when I do … we sure have lots of fun! Do click on these images for larger versions. There is an ad (on the left)… >> read more

Look Who’s Baking!

Written by • Oct 27th, 2010 • Category: Others
Got a little surprise just now when picking Fitzand up from the childcare center. The teacher showed me a page from a magazine and there right in front of my eyes … my Fitzand! Coolness eh? Then I suddenly remembered there was this lady going around interviewing parents during one of the event and I guess she’s writing for this. Too bad I don’t like to answer interview questions (doing it online is a bit okay though) and thus the short (super short) session with me probably ended up in… >> read more

Split! Spin! Split! Spin!

Written by • Aug 28th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Recently as I was just about to load a of film into my Spinner … I suddenly had this crazy idea to implement the Splitzer’s concept with the Spinner’s kickass long pano. So I took a closer look at the camera and reached for the ever-useful roll of black electrical tape. I thought maybe I could just tape up parts of the slot (see photo below) and then expose the roll … reload it … and then tape up the other parts of the slot to expose the other parts… >> read more

Gary Must Be Drunk

Written by • Jul 26th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Recently after posting some of my shots from the Spinner 360 in a local photography forum, a friend was pretty surprised when I told him that Fitzand was the one pulling the cord for some of the shots. Here’s what he said … ‘he got strength to pull the cord? the other day I tried with Jimmy’s at sentosa, took some effort man, or was I drunk‘. Hmm. Hahahaha! I told him I was sure he was drunk (as always) … and it was funny that I suddenly had this… >> 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

Spinning In Malaysia

Written by • Jul 14th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
During last weekend’s trip to Malaysia, I actually planned to shoot at least 3 rolls on my Spinner but due to the super duper busy time there … I managed to burn only one single roll. As we spent most of the time at home with my parents, the only time I could fire some shots was during a short trip out of town to some small fishing village (my bro goes thru all that trouble just to buy fresh seafood!) and a short visit to a temple near there.… >> read more

Kipon Tilt Adapter

Written by • Jul 13th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
My dream of getting a tilt-shift adapter to use on my Olympus E-P1/E-PL1 went crashing out of the window when I found out that a Japanese company/shop was coming out with one that costs about US$400. That’s a lot of money for an adapter and I gave up all hopes … until recently … somehow my itchy fingers typed ‘w … w … w … e … b … a … y … c … o … m’. Out of the blue, I was suddenly reminded of the tilt-shift adapter… >> read more

1st Spinful Of Crap

Written by • Jul 4th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Too eager to give the Spinner 360 a spin (pun intended) … I popped in a roll of expired 400 negatives and filled it with some random shots. Like any other Lomo cam … this one is a light sucker as well … which means it performs better in bright sunlight even with ISO400 film. Anyway … here are the crappy random test shots I did … * click on them for a larger version. Sorry if the way these super long images are presented look weird at the moment… >> 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
