X100 Minus 00

Written by • Jun 5th, 2012 • Category: Toys
Yup … Take away the ’00’ from the X100 and now it is X1. The Leica X1! Traded my Fujifilm X100 with a friend’s very minty condition X1 … just to have a feel of it (despite knowing the slower AF and lack of video function). It has been years since I’ve used a Leica digital camera. The last one was the Digilux 2 which I love and it was a great cam in those old days. Found a matching 2nd hand hand half case at a great price and… >> read more


Bye Bye Lytro

Written by • Apr 22nd, 2012 • Category: Toys
Some of you might have noticed that I picked up a Lytro light field camera recently. I actually ‘snatched’ it when I saw a 16GB version one that was 3 weeks old on sale in a local photography forum … at a very good price! After keeping it for slightly about a week plus … and a few test shots … I knew I had to say goodbye to it. No … not that it isn’t fun … but I find myself not liking the way we are suppose to… >> read more


Randoms : 10 July 2011

Written by • Jul 10th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Another weekend coming to an end and my battery is pretty much flat … with just enough juice to post this entry … then off to bed. Met up with some friends at Farmart this evening … enjoyed some … ermm … ‘fermented malt & barley’ in the bright daylight as well as munching some yummies. Fitzand had big fun feeding goats too! Jimmy (from ThirtySix) gave me an Instant Kit for the Lomo LC-Wide and since I had my instant back with me … I burned slightly over a… >> read more


Get A (Better) Grip!

Written by • Jun 15th, 2011 • Category: Toys
This is probably the last ‘investment’ I’m ever gonna make on my X-100 and it arrived in the mail today. A ThumbsUp CSEP-2 that was originally designed for the Leica X1. It fits perfectly on the X-100 and now it is way easier shooting with one hand (which I do often as I’ve to hold on tight to my little Energizer bunny, Fitzand) and I don’t have to try keep a good grip on the camera anymore. The silver version looks pretty good on the X-100 despite the fact that… >> read more


Planes, Sun, Fun!

Written by • May 26th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Taking a break from the madness of work, I took a day off and told Fitzand’s teachers that I’ll be bringing him out for some ‘fun’ today. We joined Jimmy & Noreen for a trip to the RSAF (Republic of Singapore Air Force) Open Day preview today and as expected … it was a hot (darn hot!) morning and we were rushing to the air-conditioned exhibition areas upon arrival. Of course after a short while, we braved the heat and headed to the air show display as well as some… >> read more


X-100 All Dressed Up

Written by • May 23rd, 2011 • Category: Toys
Finally time to post some photos of my X-100 … all ‘dressed up’ and looking pretty. Yeah I know … I know … it ain’t a rangefinder but just a ‘Casio rangefinder’ (a friend calls it that) that tries to look like a retro camera. 😀 Let’s not go there. Sorry if the colors of the case looks different in all the photos. Hahaha! I was in a rush to go fetch my boy from school and had only 5 minutes to snap some photos without much time to mess… >> read more


Beautiful Morning

It is a public holiday today and it has been a beautiful day so far. 😀 Just a quick entry to share this pano photo I took this morning. Click on it for a larger version.… >> read more


Strangers

Written by • May 15th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Street photography is something I always enjoy doing and with the X100 … now I’m trying to ‘relaunch’ my love for such photography. I sure wish the X100 has the ‘snap focus’ thingie that the Ricoh GRD3 offers but then … it still ain’t too bad as a street photography cammie. 😀 No longer having the luxury to take some hours off to just roam the streets to capture photos … I can only whip out my cam and fire shots while out with my boy or on family outings.… >> read more


Hot Day. Mothers’ Day!

Written by • May 8th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Happy Mothers’ day to every mother in the world! It has been a super duper ultra hot day and despite gulping a fair amount of icy cold beer … I am still thinking of (a bit) more now. 😀 Just came back from an early dinner with my family and friends … celebrating Mother’s Day this year at Jerry’s BBQ & Grill … eating … ermm … some not very healthy food (as usual). As we left home a bit earlier, we brought Fitzand to the Animal Resort to let… >> 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
