Bright Fifty

Written by • Oct 3rd, 2011 • Category: Toys
I am amazed that I can still remember the password to login into my blog and create a new entry. 😀 Finally … the stress is over! I am done with scanning the photos for the exhibition to be held a couple of weeks from now … and also put the finishing touch to ‘very special’ camera (also for the exhibition). Stay tuned for details. 😉 Since life is now ‘back to normal’ … I’ll post some test photos taken with a Pentax A50 f1.2 lens that I recently traded… >> read more


ETRsi + 135W : Test 1

Written by • Aug 9th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Guess I got a little too trigger happy and ended with 3 rolls since yesterday … testing out my newly found joy … the 135W back for the Bronica ETRsi. Below are the photos from the first roll … mostly taken during a zoo trip with Fitzand yesterday. He is pretty capable in handling the scooter at the zoo now and I got to relax at the back (of course always on the alert when he starts to lose control being distracted by the animals). He will stop at almost… >> read more


Pentax MZ-3 : Test Run

Written by • May 9th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Finally a roll of Lomo Xpro 100 loaded into a Pentax MZ-3 I bought some time ago to maximize the use of my 43mm lens is done, developed and scanned. 😀 I was pretty confident the camera body will work great as I picked it up from an old friend and since it is an autofocus one … shooting was real easy and fun. What puzzled me (and still is) was that even though I set the lens to f1.9 … the display on the camera showed f2.0. Perhaps there… >> read more


X-100 : Random Tests

Written by • May 3rd, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
It was quite a wait to get the Fujifilm X-100 at a good price and recently when there was an opportunity to grab one at super good price (don’t ask me who, where or how … as I ain’t suppose to tell) … I didn’t think twice and here are some initial random test shots with it. Well … I have many other shots but they are mostly of my boy and I don’t wanna flood the entry with all of them (but you can see the first few I… >> read more


0 In 12 :(

Written by • Mar 28th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
For those who has not seen my Facebook status just now … let me first apologize for a big mistake I made today. This goes out especially for those who participated in the ’36 In 12′ challenge today. Somehow I screwed up and after a long day of shooting … I happily tried to rewind my cam just to find that there ain’t no tension in it. Damn! Not sure why but somehow when I opened up the camera back … the film leader was in the canister!!! OMG! I… >> read more


The Good, The Tragic

Written by • Mar 24th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Celebrating their ‘One Impossible Year’, the Impossible Project recently launched a pair of special edition PX600 UV+ film … the Black Frame Edition & Grey Frame Edition. Lucky me … I managed to intoxicate the guy from ThirtySix with lots of beer last week and grabbed myself a ‘sample pack’. Hahahaha! Don’t let him you know this trick. Okay? 😀 Perhaps I should stay away from these (pretty expensive) cool film. Why? I’m always making big mistakes when handling the Polaroid cams. Duh. I wasted two on some very boring… >> read more


ETRSi Test Shots

Written by • Jan 7th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
The Bronica ETRSi has always been one of the camera I wanna lay my hands on to have a feel on how to operate such a camera. Recently a reasonably priced one came along and I grabbed it to have some medium format fun. It came with a 75mm f2.8 lens as well as the AE-II prism. It is one heavy beast and I stole a little time off from the trip to the zoo yesterday to burn some film to test it out. Struggled a bit and was trying… >> read more


4 Seconds Etc.

Written by • Jul 31st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Plans to go the park today had to be changed because after a short baking lesson (for Fitzand at the childcare), we were all too tired to go out. So we slacked at home, had some fun playing and then I looked outside and saw what great weather it was for photography! Oh no! I didn’t wanna leave home for some photos and so decided to whip out my GRD III for some time lapse photography from my window. Well … this is the 1st time I’m trying to do… >> 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
