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!

This week we decided to revisit another Singaporean location in the midst of the city: Haji Lane and Jalan Sultan! Located in between Bugis and Lavender MRT, the winding roads and narrow streets houses different Peranakan-style shophouses, now occupied by many cafes, restaurants and shops!

By the time you are reading this, Spring Polaroid Week 2017 would have (unfortunately) ended! It was going on from 16th April and ends on Friday, 21st April.
To commemorate this week, we decided to showcase some of our Polaroids we have taken with our Polaroid SX-70 Model 2, beautifully refurbished by Matt from 2nd Shot SX-70 Service. As usual, for those of you who have been following our Instagram you would have already seen some of these Polaroids!

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!

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!

We are soooooooooo excited to bring you this week’s entry, because for the first time, we got to see cherry blossoms in Singapore! Yes, these Japanese sakura were brought in from Japan, and immediately hyped up many Singaporeans to head to Gardens by the Bay, where the man-made garden held these beautiful flowers! We knew this was an opportunity to brush up on our macro/close-up photography, so we had our trusty Fujfilm X-T10 and the Mamiya Modified Instant Back for us to use!
