Things I miss a lot during the Circuit Breaker

With Singapore approaching the tail end of the Circuit Breaker, (amounting to almost two months of lockdown) and economic activity in Singapore gradually thawing, life will never be the same as before. Social distancing and the wearing of face masks in public will be the new normal moving forward, whether you are in a mall,... Continue Reading →

Singapore Airshow 2020

The Singapore Airshow 2020 was the first such airshow that I ever had the chance of attending. The airshow happens once every two years, and the biggest names in the aerospace industry will gather in Singapore along side defence officials representing their home countries. There, they will set up various meetings and make multi-million dollar... Continue Reading →

Fujifilm Eterna Film Simulation

On Christmas week, my extended family had a gathering in one of my cousin’s place and I had the opportunity to put my new Fujifilm camera through its paces. Specifically, I wanted to shoot and take pictures of my family members at the gathering using only one particular film simulation. As you know, the new... Continue Reading →

X-Pro 3 first impressions!

On the 28th of November, during lunchtime, I received a call from my local camera store. He was calling to inform me that the Fujifilm’s latest camera, the X-Pro 3 has finally arrived. I was super excited. I headed down to the store after work, and collected my camera. What a beauty! I got the... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

Iceland Adventure Day 0

Planning for this Grand Adventure began more than 6 months ago. Back then, we were throwing around ideas on our next big holiday. The Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, and Greenland) often came up during our almost weekly discussions over dinner meet ups. At that point of time, we weren’t very keen due... Continue Reading →

One week worth of uploads.

So how long does it took for me to upload almost 500GB of photos to Amazon Cloud Drive? Almost 8 days, non-stop. My Macbook Air was literally switched on, 24/7 for an entire week, so that I could get every single 65,000 or so photos totalling close to half a terabyte uploaded to the cloud....

Backup Conundrum

I have been reading a lot about NAS, DAS, cloud backup, cloud storage, RAID options and many many more. But still, I have yet to come up with the most cost effective solution and efficient solution to back up and archive my photos. First, there is always the traditional route of backing up my photos...

Toying with Direct Attached Storage

        For the past week, I have been trying to educate myself to the world of NAS, or Network Attached Storage. I was reading articles on the web, watching Youtube tutorials, unboxing, reviews, you name it just to get up to speed to what NAS is all about. It took me a... 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 →

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 →

Renewed vigor

The new Olympus OM-D EM5 Mark II camera that I recently purchased has given me a renewed sense of vigor in going out there and taking loads of pictures. It reminded me of the time when I got my first DSLR, the Canon 550D back when I was in NTU. I was so eager to... Continue Reading →
