This week we decided to share some of our shots taken with our Mamiya Universal Press (“MUP”)! This amazing medium-format rangefinder camera (with interchangeable lens and film backs) have been mentioned numerous times in our previous entries visiting the iconic Rochor Centre, reviewing the original MUP when we first got it, and at the National Day Parade 2017 (Rehearsal)! This time, we decided to dedicate a post to our test shots, using a modified electronic Instax Wide back!

This week we are finally breaching a topic which many Lomography instant film fans and users have been curious but have never been able to find out: comparing the line of Lomo’Instant instax film cameras (excluding the Lomo’Instant Wide camera which uses the instax wide film)! It has been a curious thought in our minds ever since we got our hands on the original Lomo’Instant camera, the Lomo’Instant Automat and the recently-released Lomo’Instant Automat Glass camera!
Of course, Lomography will typically have generic descriptions as to the experience of using their instant film cameras, but our review intends to go deeper than words, and show our readers some of the differences in using the various cameras and their accessories!

For most of our cameras featured thus far, we have been aided with the use of viewfinders/rangefinders with either auto-focusing or manual focusing functions. However, there comes a time where we encounter a certain camera which does not have the above capabilities! In those situations, we really had to consider how to focus on our photo subjects well without such focusing functions… and that’s where zone focusing fills in that gap!

Every since Leica had announced their entry into the instant photography market by producing their version of an instant camera, the Leica Sofort, we were intrigued by the specifications and the functions of their camera because the specifications are quite similar to the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 NEO Classic (“Fujifilm NEO Classic”)! We would love to have a hands on experience with the Leica Sofort, but first, we decided to pen down our thoughts on the features available in the Fujifilm NEO Classic!
We should emphasise that this is purely our own opinion and we hope to provide an objective review that covers the good and bad of the camera. That being said, we do love instant film photography, so it can be hard to truly call any instant film camera a disaster!

This week, we discuss about one of our favourite cameras (I know, we have so many favourite ones); the Polaroid Land Camera! People have been asking us about our newest addition(s), so we decided to share our perspective and thoughts on the old-fashioned but fully-functioning instant Polaroid camera!

Many of our close friends know that we have a keen interest in film cameras! Our initial knowledge and exposure (pun intended eh heh) of film cameras was the Holga Camera (notwithstanding those disposable film cameras we grew up using). While researching online about the different types of Holga cameras, we stumbled upon a variety of Holga accessories, including Holga lenses for DSLRs cameras and iPhones, phone apps mimicking Holga effects, Holga lenses for Fuji Instax cameras, DIGITAL Holga cameras and even “Holgaroids” (Instant Film backing with Holga cameras).
Clearly, we were spoilt for choice!

Differing from our usual entries, we have decided to try our hand at writing a review of our new favourite (addition) to our cameras- the Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera: Sonar Onestep! For the sake of consistency, we will refer to this camera as the “Sonar SX-70“! 🙂
