Carl Zeiss 35mm (f/2), 50mm (f/2) and 85mm (f/1.4)

As promised, here is a review for a set of lens I’ve owned since 2011.

I didn’t buy them in one go mind you, it all started like all things when I had some spare cash from a recent an oversea business trip and decided to reward myself with something nice.

Always been a suckered for Carl Zeiss – the brand of lens that supposedly took magically photos when used, enchanting everything it was used on with its grace and elegance. I had never own any Zeiss prior to this and decided to pick up a focal length I would used often.

Nikon F6 – a decade long review.

F6sideviewBIG

I know this is an odd camera to be reviewing about since it is an old camera but not old enough that it isn’t still being made by Nikon.

Although word has it that it will be discontinued by the end of 2018.

I won’t be discussing about the image quality since that has more to do with the skill, film and lenses. All the body does is make taking photos possible.

Bangkok International Motorshow (BIM) 2018

Yes I know I am way overdue for an article on my blog, but things haven’t been going as smoothly as I had hoped this year. I am now focus predominantly on Twitter so expect a lot less updates here.

Still that doesn’t mean I don’t have anything to post today, here are the photos from my recent trip to Bangkok back in March/April (end of the March to be exact).

Ever since Super GT left Malaysia for greener pastures (And less religious nutcases), my friends and I have instead ventured fourth from Sepang to Bangkok for our annual photographer meeting instead.

I have to say going to BIM is a lot more fun since the event is always held at IMPACT – an air-con stadium with smoking hot babes (Yes I know most of you are going to say they are all trannys and not real women since this is Bangkok).

So here are the photos, enjoy!

Why did I give up on digital cameras?

First of all, THIS ISN’T A DIGITAL VS FILM ARTICLE ! I HATE THOSE!

I don’t intend to add onto an already oversized pile of toxic articles of meta physics articles of one being better than the other crapfest!

This is more of a article to document my reason selling off my digital camera. It wasn’t because of some great revelation or epiphany. Nor was it due to a discovery of something greater.

My favorite film

If you are frequent visitor of this blog then you no doubt know that I shoot mainly with film and were you to guess, most of you would say it’s Kodak Portra. In truth, my favorite film is actually Instant film @ Polaroid film. In no particular order:

  1. Fujifilm Instax mini
  2. Fujifilm Instax wide
  3. Fujifilm FP-3000B

Ever since I started shooting film I enjoy the feeling, but nothing still beats Instant when I want some fun with film. Sure the colors and exposure are not spot on, but the opportunity for fun and mayhem cannot be rivaled. Plus saving pictures into my journal/notebooks or as gift to friends or strangers leads to heaps of fun.

Enlarger issues

I decided it’s time to actually show some printouts instead of scanning the negatives directly.

I won’t be the first to admit it, but printing in the darkroom isn’t something I find easy to do. For me, it is like trying to enter a meditative state while walking blindfolded into a minefield, I need to calm my mind before hand. But there are occasions where the stars do align and printing ┬áin the darkroom feel great.

This was one of those times.
