Test Shots: Mamiya Universal Press with Various Mamiya-Sekor Lens (Instax Wide Format)

Hey everyone!

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!

Commemorating Singapore with the Jubilee Walk

Hey everyone!

If you are a tourist or a local who wish to explore the sights and sounds which make Singapore Singapore (and you also wish to engage in quite  a lot of walking!) then we would highly recommend the Jubilee Walk! The government-initiated trail consists of over 20 landmarks, spanning 8 kilometres in the heart of downtown Singapore. It took over 3 days for us to complete (owing to the fact that the weather has been pretty unpredictable recently), and having done so we decided to share our images captured at these iconic landmarks.

Yayoi Kusama – A National Gallery Feature

Hey everyone!

We decided to share this special mid-week entry (which we acknowledge has been coming for some time from our last entry – we do apologise for being busy!) as this special gallery feature is ending in a few days time. The special Gallery Feature by Yayoi Kusama at the National Gallery has been going on since early June, and is set to wrap up on 3rd September 2017. We decided to share our experiences visiting the gallery, learning and appreciating art through the eyes of Yayoi Kusama!

Happy 52nd Birthday, Singapore!

Hey everyone!

Our yearly tradition on our website is to wish our amazing country a Happy Birthday and to share about the National Day Parade and the famous fireworks display at the end! We were blessed with tickets to watch the National Day Parade (Preview), and brought along our  camera gear to capture the parade and the sights that accompanied it. Furthermore, we were with many, many people as we caught and captured the impeccable fireworks display on National Day itself!

Eid Mubarak @ Geylang Serai!

Hey everyone!

This week, we visited a popular hotspot for our Muslim friends in Singapore, where the festivity carries on into the late hours of the night: the Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar!

The Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar is opened for the whole period of Ramadan (26th May to 24th June this year); it comes alive especially at night, when the Muslims break fast and have their iftar (evening meal). The pasar malam (meaning night market) is packed to the brim with food and drink stalls and other shops selling Hari Raya- related items (over a thousand stalls!), and this gave us a chance to immerse in this festive celebration. Around the pasar malam, there were beautiful light decorations and banners, and so this gave us the chance to revisit our light photography skills and explore Geylang Serai! To this end, we brought along the SLR 680SE and the Petzval Lens to use with our Fujifilm XT-10!

Reviewing the Lomo’Instant Cameras (Instax Mini)!

Hey everyone!

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!
