Good News! Bad News!

Written by • Jun 10th, 2011 • Category: Others
Good news for all the Lomography/toy camera lovers here in Singapore! Just got notified by ThirtySix that they are having a super great sale from 10th June to 10th July 2011! So what’s the bad news? The bad news is only for our wallets and credit cards! Hey … but then … why not? ๐Ÿ˜€ They are also having a ‘private film sale’ tonight at 8pm to 9pm. Hmm … maybe I’ll drop by, pick up a bucket of film and then get them to buy me a bucket of… >> read more


Pinwide In The Day

Written by • Apr 10th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
After my recent first tests with the Wanderlust’s Pinwide indoors, finally I got to test it in the bright sun light. The fun thing about using it in the day is that you get to see what you are shooting on the LCD. Yeah … I thought I wouldn’t see a thing since the pinhole is so tiny … but I was wrong. You can actually see (though not 100% clear) what you are shooting. That makes things a bit easier but somehow takes away a bit of the fun… >> read more


Wanderlust Pinwide!

Written by • Apr 6th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Quite some time back, a friend sent me a link about backing a new product, a pinhole cap for the Micro 4/3 cameras … and after some consideration … I killed some money in my PayPal account and waited (not very) patiently. What we did was pledge a certain amount of money … and if they hit the required amount, they’ll start producing it. Great news came one day when they updated us saying that they’ve met the amount and some prototypes were being made. Finally my pledge of US$39… >> read more


Quick Entry : 12 Mar 2011

Written by • Mar 12th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Got kicked outta bed (on a Saturday morning!) by Fitzand at about 7am and struggled to stay awake the entire day. I decided to play with the SLR Magic’s Toy Lens again today but told myself to give it a short rest while I get back to the film stuffs for a week or two. ๐Ÿ˜€ I ended up with only a few snapshots while having beer with an old friend after a lunch buffet. Gosh … am I feeling sleepy now! Okay … I’ll make this is a super… >> read more


Toy Lens : Fun?

Written by • Mar 5th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Since my last blog entry about the Toy Lens from SLR Magic, I got some requests for more sample photos and also a couple of questions … asking if I do find it fun. I decided to give up trying to write a review about this lens because … ermm … I can’t write well … I ain’t good at doing reviews … and ermmm …. I will just end up saying ‘Buy this lens! It is fun!’. ๐Ÿ˜€ Focal length : 26mm (52mm on m4/3) Aperture : f1.4 –… >> read more


Toy Lens : First Look

Written by • Mar 4th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
This new toy arrived at my desk … just a day after I placed an order (from Hong Kong). Super fast! The Toy Lens from SLR Magic … a lens that a blog reader/friend … ‘poisoned’ me with recently. You know who you are?!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ With a focal length of 26mm (which equals a 52mm on M4/3) … this little lens sure sounds fun! So how does it perform (or in toy lens/cam lovers’ perspective … ‘not perform’)? The lens is TINY! It is even smaller than the Pentax 25mm… >> read more


Can’t Get Crazier! Meow!

Written by • Feb 21st, 2011 • Category: Others
Just the other day … while gulping beer with Jimmy from ThirtySix … he told me that Superheadz will be launching some new ‘toy’ digital camera and it has something to do with cats. Cats?? Not sure if he had one too many beer or he wasn’t suppose to let me know (yet) about it … he just told me that since I love cats … I should buy it. Huh? Today … I stumbled upon the camera called ‘Necono Digital Camera’ by Superheadz. Unfortunately I couldn’t find much details… >> read more


Game Over (For Now)

Written by • Feb 9th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
A week has passed without work. A week of leave went up in ashes. The Lunar New Year celebration is over (at least for me … or did I even celebrate at all?). Tomorrow will be the first day I get my butt back to work. For once … I’m taking a photo that reflects exactly how I feel now … No Angry Bird was harmed in the making of this photo. Oven thoroughly cleaned too. This was taken using the Lensbaby Composer about an hour ago. I just collected… >> read more

Summer Is Here!

Written by • Dec 23rd, 2010 • Category: Others
About a month (or was it two?) ago … while chatting with a friend about dressing up Holga cameras, she asked if I’d be interested to help her do one as a present for a friend of hers. While I usually do not like the idea of having deadlines for doing such things (there is enough bloody deadlines at work!), I somehow agreed. We agreed on a certain fee to cover the camera, the materials and of course a few jugs of espresso to keep me awake … and the… >> read more
