The past week I have re-kindled my love for photography a little bit. Ever since I started dusting off my X-Pro 3 from the dry box and giving it a spin to see if it still works, it reminded me of why I like taking photos. It also cemented the fact that my love for... Continue Reading →
I am getting the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 after all.
Two weeks ago, I made the plunge. I paid the deposit and pre-ordered the X-Pro 3. Such a big purchase was not done lightly. As always, I imposed a two-week cooling off period, where I will not think, read or watch anything related to the X-Pro 3 and only revisit that thought after the cooling... Continue Reading →

The Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 lens challenge
Last week I met up with a friend whom I helped influence his camera buying decisions years ago. To that end, he decided to buy the same Olympus camera body that I had; the Olympus OM-D EM5 Mark II. He bought the silver one, while I got the black one. Over the years he bought... Continue Reading →

There are 2 leading lenses available that I have set my sights on. One is from Olympus and the other, Voigtlander. The Olympus released the M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f1.8... Continue Reading →
Loving the 12-40mm PRO lens
So the other day I posted about me being irrational and heading out to my local camera shop to purchase the 12-40mm f2.8 PRO lens. It costs a whopping SGD1200. I still can’t believe that I actually plunked down that amount of money to buy a lens. I just can’t. So what compelled me to go out there and... Continue Reading →
A new lens (finally)
I love to take photos. And that would mean that I would need to buy better lens to improve on my photography skills. But they are darn bloody expensive. And without any form of financial returns to my investments which amounts to nothing more than just a harmless little hobby to keep myself entertained, I... Continue Reading →
