This week’s entry is a tribute to a few places that sadly won’t be around after 2017: the Rochor Centre (which we visited last year and featured on our website), and the Sungei Road Thieves’ Market (a place we described in detail on our website too). It has been many months since we explored the locations, and to imagine that these gems will be gone for good is a sad thought. Therefore, we decided to visit these locations one last time!
While we rue the closing of both locations, we have gained a deep appreciation for capturing evocative images so that we can fondly reminisce of our experiences in the future. Therefore, we brought another newly-acquired camera (which we will no doubt review in the near future), the Mamiya Universal Press. This analog camera is specially designed to use different film formats such as the Polaroid packfilm (FP-100c) and various medium film formats (such as the 120 film, 6×9 etc). Furthermore, this particular camera has been modified to accept Impossible Project film and the Instax Wide film! Overall, its utility cannot be understated, and it will serve us well in the future!
Lastly, we took some expired Impossible B&W film (for SX-70), and we were blown away by the sheer quality of the f/2.8, 100m Mamiya Sekor lens!
