We recently got our hands on a modified Instant Wide film back made for Mamiya Universal Press (MUP) lens! Using a Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 camera, the camera modifier had hacked out the lens and replaced it with a 3D-printed adapter for MUP lenses. We had a somewhat unpleasant experience with a previous camera modifier who was unable to replicate the same setup without encountering issues such as light leaks, and naturally, we were cautiously optimistic about this modified camera.

As is almost a yearly tradition, we made our way to the Singapore CBD area to partake in the visual sights of the Singapore Night Festival 2019! Every year, we are treated to authentic and unique visual and auditory experiences that only come out at night, and this year did not disappoint at all! This year, we had on hand our trusty Fujifilm GFX 50R and the RB67 with the modified Instax Square back!

Today, we are excited to share with you one of our latest projects: our very first self-published photobook!
Actually to be honest – we have been printing photobooks for a while, but those were always for our own collection. This time, we felt that it was time to launch our own photobook and in deciding on the theme and vision, we had no difficulty in choosing one: Singapore’s very own Dragon Playground.

Earlier in May 2019, an interesting online article appeared on the Internet, wherein the author recounted her life, living in a little-known public housing estate called Jalan Kukoh, in the center of Singapore. The article attracted quite a bit of online attention for its stark critique of poverty in plain sight, and naturally we were curious to find out more about this lesser known housing estate.
We were interested to see for ourselves how Jalan Kukoh was like, giving what was reported in that online article. We brought our trusty Polaroid SLR 680 SE and our Mamiya RB67 with a modified instax mini back to capture our experience.

We finally had the opportunity to use the Rollei 35 S film camera, which we had been eyeing for a while! What makes this unique (for us at least) is that the Rollei 35 S was produced in Singapore in the late 1960s! With such a connection and history behind this camera, we were ecstatic when our friend kindly lent us one to try it out!
