ZOOming In

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

This post is a reprint of a post by ndroo that originally appeared at Fuzzyeyeballs.

A trip to the zoo yesterday morning gave me the opportunity to give the Fujifilm X-S1 a test drive. Not one who usually use (or see the need) of a tele lens … I found myself struggling to find subjects to shoot just to test out the camera. The zoo outing was a perfect opportunity to zoom in cl (Read more...)

A friend (Lee Jiing … another photography addict) posted a photo of this plastic camera that comes with the Jr. Scientist magazine on Facebook and being curious (as usual) … I dropped him a message and he told me he found it at Toys R Us while shopping for toys for his kiddos.

This post is a reprint of a post by ndroo that originally appeared at Fuzzyeyeballs.

Thanks to those fun people from Lensbaby, a copy of the Edge 80 arrived at my office today. Unfortunately it was close to midnight by the time I had time for myself (and my cameras), so giving this cool lens a proper test run is not quite possible (old folks need sleep too!). Anyway … here are (Read more...)

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

This post is a reprint of a post by ndroo that originally appeared at Fuzzyeyeballs.

Tried very hard to take some test shots with the SLR Magic’s Pinhole (paired with my good ol’ E-P1) today when out with my family. Luckily I had some time out in the sun and managed to squeeze out 10 test shots. You might notice some dust (quite a lot of them!) spots on the photos … (Read more...)

Tuning Up For The New Year

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

This post is a reprint of a post by ndroo that originally appeared at Fuzzyeyeballs.

Finally I put the (very little) effort to try shove in a little AF fine tuning adjustment to my K5 paired with 85mm lens. I’ve always had this feeling that it is back/front focusing a little but couldn’t bothered to fine tune it (until today) and after a few minutes of testing and tweaki (Read more...)

Yeah … my Lensbaby Composer has gone pro. Received the Pro version of the Composer from Lensbaby yesterday and it answered all my questions before about how different can it be from the normal version. After drawing a Hello Kitty leaving a big ‘X’ on the polling slip for the Presid (Read more...)

LC-Wide & Instant Back

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

This post is a reprint of a post by ndroo that originally appeared at Fuzzyeyeballs.

I wasn’t planning to get the Instant Kit for the LC-Wide because I’ve not been too satisfied with the photos that the instant back produce when paired with my LC-A+. However things got a little different when Jimmy (from ThirtySix) gave me a Instant Kit last weekend and told me to bring (Read more...)

Pinwide In The Day

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

This post is a reprint of a post by ndroo that originally appeared at Fuzzyeyeballs.

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 (Read more...)
