Splashy Morning

Written by • Nov 26th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Spent half a day at a pool with Fitzand and some of his classmates today. The school/childcare will be organizing swimming lessons for the kiddos next year and this morning was an intro course to let the parents know what the kiddos will be doing. Of course my little boss was super happy and even refused to leave after the session ended after lunch. Bet me must be looking forward to the lessons. Knowing him … it will not be just boring lessons … as he will definitely be clowning… >> read more

HorusBennu Thumb Grip

Written by • Nov 21st, 2011 • Category: Toys
After playing with the Fujifilm X10 for some weeks, one definite thing I wanted to do was to hunt for a thumb grip as the little grip at the back of the camera was of not much use (blame my fat thumb). My thumb is always resting on a corner of the LCD or sometimes accidentally press/turn the dial/rocker on the top right corner (at the back). The ThumbsUp that I got for my X100 is awesome but it is pricey! I told myself that there is no way I… >> read more

Crossing My Path #2

Written by • Nov 9th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
One of my favorite past time when on vacations is to wander around on the streets taking random snapshots of people. Unlike some who prefers interacting with their subjects, I prefer my subjects ‘raw’. This means I wanna capture them in the most natural situations without them smiling for the camera. Most photos from this set were taken using the Fujifilm X10 as I was giving it a test run on the streets. I usually love getting close to the people and thus shooting wide most of the time. The… >> read more

X10 Full Size Photos?

Written by • Nov 6th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
I received about 5 requests for full sized photos from the Fujifilm X10. As I ain’t one who is particular about the details … nor am I a pixel peeper … I usually tell people that I’ll try post some should I find the time. I was busy playing with my LomoKino today but still I have a couple of photos from the X10 … presented in full size … untouched in post processing … for those who are interested. This one below was shot at ISO100 … … and… >> read more

From The Sky

Written by • Oct 31st, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
I’ve never bothered to take any photo from the plane windows but yesterday on the way back to Singapore … probably somewhere near Malaysia … I decided to whip out my camera for a couple of shots as the scene made me go ‘Whoa!!!’. For once a camera with a little bit of zoom does help. 😀 The X10! I sure did struggle lots at work today to keep myself awake and sane but thank God I made it through. Another 4 days to go til the weekends but I… >> read more

HK : Fun, Aches, Kitty

Written by • Oct 30th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Too lazy to start packing up for my trip back to Singapore … so I’ll just sleep on it til tomorrow morning and hope I can still make it to catch the flight at noon. It has been a wonderful trip with lots (and lots) of eating and a bit of shopping (I swear I only bought 1 thing and the rest of the shopping were done by wifey and Fitzand). 😀 I’m dead tired now after the many days of non stop entertaining the little one who seemed to… >> read more

X10 : More Random Tests

Written by • Oct 28th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Gave the X10 more random test shots today and mostly done using the EXR mode (I call this … the lazy bum like me mode) … all I did was press the shutter button. Many of them done in low light and here are the results … The straight outta cam results are satisfying (for me). None of these shots were Photoshopped except for web resizing. After some hours of use … I still don’t quite like the idea of having to turn the zoom barrel to switch on the… >> read more

Sinned Again

Written by • Oct 27th, 2011 • Category: Toys
I made the biggest mistake and sinned big time when I waltzed into a camera shop here in Hong Kong today. I groped the Leica X1 … I couldn’t afford it. Next I saw something with an extra zero at the back … and there stood on the shelf … a Fujifilm X10! OMG! After playing with it for a short while … I sinned. Honestly the size ain’t too much different from the X100 but the weight is sure way lighter than it’s bigger brother. The first impression when… >> read more
