Darth Vader Cam!

Written by • Sep 27th, 2010 • Category: Toys
Many years after selling off what I thought was the ugliest camera ever (the Orbit 360F), I stumbled upon another one that is a little butt ugly but has a weird futuristic look. Introduced in 1991, the Konica Aiborg is sometimes referred to as the ‘Darth Vader camera’ by some. It has a 35-105 zoom lens, is pretty heavy despite the plastic body and rubbery grip. It arrived just the other day and here are some photos & info about it … On the top of the camera … there… >> read more


Swirly In The Soup

Written by • Jul 10th, 2010 • Category: Others
After being notified about my Lensbaby aperture disc design being one of the runner ups, I was contacted by Picture-Soup.com for a short interview regarding it. For those wondering how those custom discs which made it in the list (and the awesome winning one) looks like, do check out the article because they did publish images of the discs as well. Check out the article here. That’s all for this entry. 😀 Gotta go get some sleep because I’ll be travelling up to Malaysia early in the morning … with… >> read more


Pinhole Pizza?

Written by • Mar 20th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Some time ago … I was ‘stuck’ with some piggies (US$ credits) in the Lomography store and had to decide on ‘killing’ them on something a couple of days before they expired. There wasn’t any camera I was eyeing and I’ve enough film in my fridge to last me a while. So I browsed around and came across these pinhole cameras called ‘Pinhole Blender’. Huh? What a name! They look like some cool metal cans that you can shove a roll of film (they come in 35mm and 120 variations)… >> read more


Oh Yucks! [Updated]

Written by • Mar 3rd, 2010 • Category: Others
UPDATE Oh yeah! Looks like this is the real thing and only 130 of them are available at … € 500.00 each!!! OMG! Get yours today!!! Muwahaha! After the recent launch of the mystery product (although not a mystery anymore because of some leak about it … thanks to Patrick :P) which is the Instant Back for the LC-A+/LC-A, Lomography seemed to have another toy ready to poison the world. This time … they also got the fans to guess the mystery product … The little bits of images to… >> read more


Smiley Half A Frame

Written by • Feb 24th, 2010 • Category: Others
Erik sent me this info about a new Holga camera called the Holga 135TIM. One look and I started to smile. Here’s a photo of it … Hello Spongebob! According to infomation found online, this is a half frame camera and as you can see from the front (makes me smile everytime I look at it), the two eyes seem to be the lenses. From the looks, it probably allows you to open either ‘eye’ to expose half a frame each time, and maybe opening both of them will give… >> read more


Analogue Lust

Written by • Jan 15th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I confess that I’ve been wanting this camera for quite a while now. Perhaps for several years! I saw one for sale quite some years back but the price was a little on the high side (for me) and after giving that a miss … I somehow forgotten about it. Phew! Well … that’s until recently I chanced upon this unit for sale that is in very minty condition and comes with the original pouch and box! I contacted the seller and (pushed my luck) offered him an amount and… >> read more


Gakkenflex : Fun!

Written by • Nov 12th, 2009 • Category: Others
Finally got my Gakkenflex assembled and ready to go. It was really fun putting the little parts together but not being able to read Japanese (in the instructions) did make me pause a couple of times to look hard before proceeding. Some of the parts/steps were a little confusing (for me). So I decided to note those down and maybe share with everyone here … in case anyone is interested. 😀 All ready to start … after Fitzand goes to bed 😀 The final product … ready to go! The… >> read more


Tiny Mini : 1st Touch

Written by • Aug 25th, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
I must admit that I was very excited to test drive the Diana Mini when I received it yesterday. I was curious how it will perform … will ‘she’ produce photos that are close to what its elder sister (the Diana F+) can churn out? Is it just a cute pretty camera? As I was only free (after Fitzand went to bed) around 10pm … I decided to load a roll of expired ISO200 film and (in a state of super tired) fire some test shots around home. Instead of… >> read more


Diana Mini? [UPATED]

Written by • Aug 19th, 2009 • Category: Toys
UPDATES It’s official! What we saw and discussed about was exactly the Diana Mini that Lomography has just announced! The Diana Mini has big shoes to fill being the little sister of the classic beauty Diana F+. Luckily the “Mini” was born a star in her own right. Super sweet, the Diana Mini has got plenty of style and features to the nines. With the flick of a little switch you can move from the retro square format to the amazing Half-Frame, giving you the ability to Shoot Forever, packing… >> read more


Golden What?

Written by • Jul 22nd, 2009 • Category: Lead Story
Came across this weird looking camera called ‘Goldeneye’ in some online store and thought some of you might be interested to know (or buy?) it. Hardly can find much info about it online though. I guess it’s one of those plastic cameras that looks pretty cute (like the Golden Half) but this is not a half frame camera. From images, it looks pretty sleek with the gold & white theme eh? The gold colored front ‘cover’ seems to flip open to reveal a flash and some cool looking ‘dials’ inside.… >> read more
