Featuring the Mamiya Universal Press!

Hey everyone!

This week we decided to share some of our shots taken with our Mamiya Universal Press (“MUP”)! You may have seen this amazing camera (with interchangeable lens and film backs) being mentioned in our previous entries here, and so this time we decided to dedicate a post to our recent Polaroid shots with the MUP!

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!

Testing our Zone Focusing Skills with the Modified Fujifilm Instax 7s!

Hey everyone!

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!

More Flowers and Dye-Nosaurs @ Gardens by the Bay

Hey everyone!

Continuing from our coverage of the Flower Dome @ Gardens by the Bay, we promised we would introduce other events taking place at the well-known Gardens! One such event catering for children was the “Dye-Nosaur Gardens”, which brought to ‘life’ different dinosaurs living in the prehistoric times! We also included our Instax photos taken at the location, so be prepared to be inundated with flowers and dinosaurs!

Dazzling iLights @ Marina Bay

Hey everyone!

iLights @ Marina Bay has been the night lighting arts festival in Singapore for the last few years, but this was the first time that we were going for the event! The festival was held around the CBD in Singapore, notably around the Marina Promenade and Esplanade. We had the company of Kit Yeng, who was last seen on our website celebrating Chinese New Year @ Chinese Gardens. It was certainly very interesting, although it was pretty crowded (as it was the last weekend when we attended); nevertheless, we sought to enjoy ourselves with a bout of night photography using the Fujifilm X-T10 and the Mint Instantflex!

Future World Exhibition at the ArtScience Museum

Hey everyone!

We have been looking forward to visiting the ArtScience Museum by the Marina Bay Sands since we heard about Future World exhibition. A visual and auditory exhibition, it involves the use of technology and human input to immerse the visitors. We were especially keen of a particular installation featuring 170,000 LED lights (as seen later), so look out for that! We also visited other concurrent exhibitions, but we will write about them very soon (in a separate entry).

Holga 120 GCFN: A Camera for All Seasons

Hey everyone!

Some keen-eyed readers may have noticed that despite featuring many cameras so far, the Holga camera has never been featured in our website. To be honest, we did not own one (till now); we acknowledge that the Holga is a timeless classic camera which helped revitalise the interest of street/film photography in Asia (and beyond) since the early 1980s.
