The ‘311 We Care’ Strap

Written by • Aug 26th, 2012 • Category: Toys
I was eyeing this white special edition strap from Wotancraft + Annie Barton 1972 that a seller was giving away with the purchase of his Wotancraft bag. I have a Wotancraft bag and didn’t want to buy another (I’m broke!), so I decided to just forget about the strap some time ago. Great news is that recently a friend wanted to get that bag from the seller … but the bag was already sold … but the strap was still available! So I promptly (!) contacted the seller and bought… >> read more


The OneKnot Strap

Written by • Jun 14th, 2012 • Category: Toys
Finally found a leather wrist strap that I love lots! This 21cm OneKnot wrist strap from Zhou (jiozhou on eBay) is made from fine cow hide … looks simple … and has the ‘raw’ look that I love. It is very soft and comfortable yet feels strong enough for most cameras that doesn’t weigh a ton. There ain’t no stitches or clips. The design is cleverly secured using a simple knot (thus the name OneKnot). Luckily it is pretty nicely priced (US$18.50) that I bought two of these … one… >> read more


A Nicer Strap

Written by • Mar 14th, 2012 • Category: Toys
If there is one thing I don’t like about the Pentax K-01 … it has to be the strap (other than┬áthe rubbery SD slot cover). Not only I find it ugly … I also find it too short. Looking for a replacement … I found this pretty neat and comfy Matin strap … with the word ‘Pentax’ on it. I ain’t no fanboy of any brand but I thought the orange colored text looks good with the yellow cammie. ­čśŤ Before I say goodbye to the original one that… >> read more

Written by • Jun 2nd, 2011 • Category: Toys
I was taking some snaps of my Think Tank Retrospective 5 bag for a friend just now and thought since I’ve already taken the photos … I might as well blog about it here. Well … I was actually taking the photos for a friend who wanted see how it actually looks like (she says images in products’ official pages are usually misleading) and why I like it. Ermm … ok … I try … I try … Here it is … my pinestone Retrospective 5 … ‘posing’ with a… >> read more


Look What I Bagged This Xmas

Written by • Dec 26th, 2009 • Category: Toys
This must be the coolest X’mas ever! I got this present from my wife and she told me to stop using that boring little black camera bag (a small Domke) because it looks so boring. Hahaha! Yay! It’s a Herringbone VOL leather camera bag! Cool! Well she didn’t actually pick it herself but got me to find myself one that I like. Not wanting to spend too much, I settled for a minty used condition one from a photography forum’s buy/sell section. I’ve quite many camera bags in my storeroom,… >> read more


Morning Test Video

Written by • Nov 25th, 2009 • Category: Others
Took the opportunity to try shooting a super short video clip when I was testing out the E-P1 + Pentax 25mm f1.4 lens while I was at the Merlion Park for the sunrise shoot. My hands were ultra-shaky probably due to lack of sleep, so I mounted the camera on my crappy tripod and tried ‘panning’ it with the tripod’s center column. Too bad the movement wasn’t very smooth and resulted in slight jerks in some parts of the video. It was tough trying to turn the camera but holding… >> read more


Dressing Up The Mini

Written by • Nov 4th, 2009 • Category: Others
The Diana Mini created quite a lot of excitement not too long ago and I’m sure there are many fans of this cute little camera out there. I came across this neat half case (leather??) from Korea and thought maybe I can post some images of them here … in case some of you might be interested. They are going for US$39.99 each and comes in few pretty cute colors … These cute cases are available on e(vil)Bay by the seller stylepaparazzi. Nah … I won’t be getting any of… >> read more


White Pants On

Written by • Jul 24th, 2009 • Category: Toys
The white leather half case & strap for my E-P1 finally arrived this morning. The sexy white case was one of the reason why I fell for this cam (yeah … vain!) but I was later told that it ain’t available in Singapore (yet) because it’s rather pricey. There are supposed to be some third party cases to be made available soon but I decided to not leave my poor E-P1 naked for too long. So here it is … the E-P1 with pants on … The leather strap is… >> read more
