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!

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!

Seeing Double (Exposures) with the Impossible I-1 Analogue Instant Camera

Hey everyone!

We last featured the Impossible I-1 camera during our trip to Little India when Deepavali was being celebrated! Since then, we have come to appreciate a nifty function of the I-1 camera which many Polaroid cameras do not have: a double exposure function! Indeed, we were also keen to explore the potential of the I-1 camera further, and so we took it out one day to try out some of our favourite double exposures with the Impossible White Round Frame monochrome film (Gen 2.0) (we used a pack which was expired). We wish to highlight that the I-1 camera can be manually controlled using the I-1 mobile application (“App”), and that has to be used to take double exposure instant films.

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.

Testing the new Fujifilm Instax Mini Monochrome Film!

Hey everyone!

In September 2016, Fujifilm announced the release of their latest instax mini film product: the Fujifilm instax mini Monochrome film (“Monochrome film”)!

As there are many reviews floating around about this new product, we thought that we would get the film and write about our first impressions about using this film. Further, we have noted how different cameras and developers affect how the chemical spread and the ‘colour’ shown on the film. We should also mention that this entry is not a review; rather, it is an exposition of our snapshots and results!
