Early X’mas Presents

Written by • Nov 27th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I remember a couple of years back, my first Christmas present for that year came early … in the form of a package from Lensbaby. This year … it is like deja vu … a juicy parcel landed at my office the day I started work after my short vacation! That made the first day at work (a little) better. 😀 Too bad it was too late for my trip, otherwise I’d have lugged my DSLR with the (Lens)babies along. Anyway … there is always a next vacation. 😀 There… >> read more

Kipon Tilt Adapter

Written by • Jul 13th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
My dream of getting a tilt-shift adapter to use on my Olympus E-P1/E-PL1 went crashing out of the window when I found out that a Japanese company/shop was coming out with one that costs about US$400. That’s a lot of money for an adapter and I gave up all hopes … until recently … somehow my itchy fingers typed ‘w … w … w … e … b … a … y … c … o … m’. Out of the blue, I was suddenly reminded of the tilt-shift adapter… >> read more

Change Of Mount

Written by • May 2nd, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Guess some of you might already know that I picked up a white Pentax K-x while I was in Japan … just to use with my Lensbabies. Unfortunately the Pentax mount that Lensbaby was supposed to send me has not arrive when I left for Japan … so I couldn’t test/use it there. Anyway … it arrived when I was away and I got it installed the day before. I decided to take a couple of snapshots … in case anyone would be interested. Each lens mount is held by… >> read more

Warm Night, Cold Noods

Written by • Apr 15th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
After selling off my DSLR body yesterday, I managed to let go my macro lens this evening. This means I’ve only 2 more lenses to sell before I am officially ‘DSLRless’. Someone’s coming over to check out the Sigma 10-20 lens tomorrow evening and I do hope he’ll help me clear off one more lens. These are a couple more of random test shots with the E-PL1 just now during dinner with my family (while waiting for the buyer who wanted my macro lens). I’ve had soba for the 2nd… >> read more

Ugly Lens, Ugly Food

Written by • Nov 23rd, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I was out early in the morning on Saturday to view/shoot the sunrise again. This time we decided to park out butts at the Merlion Park instead of the usual sunrise shoots at the beach. That morning I didn’t really shoot much but spent more time slacking and testing out this lens that I bought used recently. It is a very funny and weird looking little lens for my Olympus E-P1. This Pentax 25mm f1.4 lens is a manual focus lens that produces photos that are pretty sharp in the… >> read more

20mm Weekend

Written by • Oct 18th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Just the other day, a friend was trying to tell me that time seems to be flying fast than ever … because of some stuffs that I can’t comprehend (or give a damn). All I know is the darn weekends do zoom past like there is no tomorrow! Argh! Here I am behind my computer … blogging (and bitching) about another weekend gone by … but I’m sure from tomorrow onwards (Monday!) … time behind the desk will be crawling slower than ever. 🙁 Yesterday was the World Toy Camera… >> read more

Pancake + Pancake

Written by • Oct 13th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I’ve always thought the Olympus E-P1 is a very good camera and thought the 17mm f2.8 pancake lens is the only one I’ll ever own for use on it. Unfortunately … along came Panasonic and their GF1, another Micro 4/3 system camera and with it … comes a bright Lumix 20mm f1.7 pancake lens that sent a tsunami into my bank balance. Duh! The lens is not available here in Singapore yet (except when buying it with the camera body), so after quite some consideration … I decided to get… >> read more

Leftover From The Florist

Written by • Oct 13th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Found these 3 photos in my HDD while I was doing housekeeping last night. They were part of some random shots I took at a florist not too long ago. They were taken with my Olympus E-P1 and the 17mm kit lens on that day when I was helping a friend shoot some flower arrangements for a competition. The competition results are not out yet but I do hope one (or more) of her entires strike jackpot there. I think I should have gone easy on the saturation of this… >> read more

E-P1 : How High?

Written by • Aug 3rd, 2009 • Category: Others
I received quite a handful of questions about what I think of the Olympus E-P1 and some requests for sample photos taken at high ISOs with it. Some even asked if I can send them a couple of photos ‘straight out from the camera’. Hmmm. You mean I can’t even brighten the photos or adjust the curves before sending you the samples? Hahaha. Okay. So a couple of you got what you asked for and so far I know one has finally given in to temptation. I won’t be posting… >> read more

Lensbabies Goes M43

Written by • Jul 15th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
What originally planned was to use only the 17mm f2.8 pancake lens on my E-P1 somehow didn’t last long. First I thought why not get an adapter to use the lens on my Pen F camera and later I had the itch to try using my Lensbabies on it. Duh! This means I’ll need two adapters! Ordered a Pen F to M43 adapter from ebay but it has not arrived as I’m typing this but managed to grab a Canon EF to M43 one from a local online camera store… >> read more
