Double Processed Rocket

Written by • Mar 2nd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Something pretty funny (and scary) happened at the photo lab today when I dropped by to collect a roll of Provia 400X shot with my Sprocket Rocket recently. I usually lurk outside the lab until the boss gives me the thumbs up … then I’ll crawl in only when the processing is ready. Today … while I was having a puff outside the lab … the boss appeared suddenly with a small pail … and in it was a the entire roll of developed negatives (the one I sent it!).… >> read more

Strip In Strips

Frankly … I was almost bored to death during my trip to Malaysia for the Lunar New Year recently. Luckily I managed to get my dad to make a trip to the store to get me a prepaid internet access SIM card. However … I was still super busy having to look after Fitzand and trying to recover from hangovers. 😛 In between these stuffs … I finished a roll of the Lomo Chrome 100 Xpro film (in a week). It was actually meant to be a roll of ‘first… >> read more

Split! Spin! Split! Spin!

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

Instant In A Box

Written by • Jul 23rd, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
This is probably something I had been working on for the longest time (just like trying to quit smoking). The original plan was to make an instant pinhole camera using a dead old Polaroid EE100 but after some initial disappointment and some headaches trying to remove the parts off the camera … I decided to work on a totally different DIY instant pinhole camera. The mess I got from trying to modify the EE100 into an instant pinhole. LOL! I couldn’t remove the part where the original lens used to… >> read more

Extracting The Film Leader

Written by • Dec 19th, 2009 • Category: Others
Quite often I’ve been asked how do we extract the film leader from the canister … in order for the roll to be reloaded into another camera for the 2nd exposure. To be honest … in the past … I used to get the guy at the lab to help me do so. I thought that was the only way to do it until I met a very helpful camera seller who demonstrated how it can be done with just a short strip of film and double-sided tapes. I immediately… >> read more
