Witnessing the Boxing Day Solar Eclipse in Singapore!

Hey everyone!

On 26 December 2019, Singapore (and many parts of Asia) witnessed one of many rare moments to happen to our fateful planet: an annular solar eclipse! A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the rotation of the Earth and the sun, resulting in the moon “blocking” out the Sun for a brief moment.

Trying out a Modified Instant Wide Back for Mamiya Press Lens!

Hey everyone!

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.

Exploring Jalan Kukoh!

Hey everyone!

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.
