Camera gear downgrade?

So recently I wrote about how smartphone cameras are getting so good that, as a casual/enthusiast photographer like me, lugging a separate camera and lens during my travels is no longer an attractive option for me. Smartphone cameras has gotten so good that I feel it is no longer worth the effort in bringing all... Continue Reading →

Budgeting for 7-14mm f2.8 lens

If I am serious in getting the Pro lens from Olympus, the 7-14mm f2.8, it will seriously throw a curveball at this year's budget of expenditure and potentially threaten my savings target for 2019 that I have created as part of my New Year's Resolution. All the holiday destinations I have planned has already strained... Continue Reading →

Sold my lens with a tinge of regret

In 2016, sometime in the month of June, I bought my second lens for the Olympus OM-D EM5 Mark II camera. It was the 40-150mm f2.8 lens. At that time it costs almost S$2000. But I loved the lens to death. It was one of the sharpest lens I ever owned. Incredible bokeh, thanks to... Continue Reading →

Disabling my Smugmug account

I have been using Smugmug to host some of my photographic works over the past few years. The photos that I took from my trusty Olympus OM-D camera were all saved and backed up using the Smugmug file storage services. Now I am disabling the account because I haven't been using the website much. The... Continue Reading →

We will be heading there from the 24th to the 28th of September. This marks the third vacation planned for 2015, after Perth, Australia, and Japan. It should... Continue Reading →

Finally bought a new Olympus lens

And it is none other than the famous Olympus M. Zuiko 40-150mm F2.8 PRO lens. It's huge, but lighter than I expected. Still, I had trouble fitting that lens in addition to my camera body with the 12-40mm f2.8 PRO lens attached to it in the camera bag. It's only feasible if I remove some... Continue Reading →

Olympus 17mm f1.8 vs Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95

The next lens on my mind would be an equivalent focal length of 35mm on a full frame camera. That would roughly translate to about 17mm on a MFT system. 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 →

Smugmug for photographers

Ever since I bought my new camera, the Olympus OM-D EM5 Mark II, I have been using Flickr and WordPress to first, store the images, and then showcase some of my very best images through WordPress. It worked well for a while. Flickr is free with 1TB of space to store your photos. That is... 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 →
