Bye-Bye Dari Lensa CM

Just to inform that I will no longer blog here. There are times when I want to blog about something not related to photography and I find that it's not proper to blog here. Therefore I decided to quit this blog and create a new one which I can blog about anything rather than photography alone. However, I shall not remove but keeping this as an archieve instead.

You can find me in this new blog.

My Food(o)graphy - Assignment#1

Project - Golden and Brown

I have been waiting for so long to transform one of my classic camera into something different. Actually I have two units of Olympus Pen EE3 which I have been thinking to change the look on one of it. And finally after much deliberation, I managed to transform its original look from this...

and TA-DA.. into this! Do you agree that it look magnificent and cute? It took me one whole day from disassembling the parts, paint the bottom and top panel with Gold paint and replace the black into brown leatherette and finally reassemble everything back into one piece. I feel aching all over my body but it's really great and worth the effort.

Quick Update - Total Collections Todate

I have been very busy with works lately therefore I don't have time to snap individual photo of my newly acquired collection and update them with some details reference here. However, as a quick update, I list here all the previous items plus those recently acquired at the time I wrote this. Once I am not too busy, I shall update those new ones with detailed photos and information. After all, I am expecting 4 more to arrive in the next couple of weeks, so let's just wait for them as well.

Apart from the cameras, I have also acquired quite a numbers of camera accessories like flashes, light meters and self-timers. And of course all of them are vintage as well.

The last two pictures below are the latest gems in my collection. Both are the Vintage Spy Mini Camera. You can see how tiny and cute they are when placed next to next to a normal size camera. Next to the camera you can also see the tiny little green thingy. That's the film the camera used actually. Soooo tiny and cute little thing right? I was so fortunate that I got 6 of them as it came together as a lot when I bought the Minetta. Those films are no longer available anywhere. So, of course I am not going to 'waste' them but only for display.
