Camera Test, Lumia 920

shot with the Lumia 920, edited with Nokia’s creative studio.


not bad. white balance is pretty accurate with slight saturation. but come one its a cell phone camera, what do I expect.

i want more!!



PENTAX will be releasing its 645D this May in Japan.


645 is branded on the camera,though the sensor is not the ordinary 645… the sensor size is 44mm x 33mm. still huge enough lol


and they are announcing that the camera will be priced at a reasonable level. i’m guessing somewhere from $10,000 to $15,000 USD. by the way, Hassellblad’s H4D-60 (60megapixel) as a kit runs around $40,000 USD. not reasonable for me lol


Mamiya/Sekor 500 DTL, July 1968

new toy.


1968, Mamiya/Sekor 500 DTL

i’ve been to the Long Beach Antique Flea Market nearly every month but never bought anything before lol and this is the first thing i bought at the flea market. $30 USD. could have negotiated the price lower since the strap was missing and there was a small dent on the upper body. other then that, everything works fine.

ほぼ毎月ロングビーチのフリマ には行ってるけど、一回も買った事が無いんです僕(笑。ってなわけで今回、めでたく初購入。3000円ぐらぃ。値段をもう少し値切れば良かった…。スト ラップ付いてなければボディーに軽いヘコみなんかもあったり。まぁ、完璧に動くからいいんだけどね。

came with the Mamiya/Sekor 50mm F2. pretty fast lens.

マミヤ/セコールの 50mmF2がついてた。中々明るい。

read that there is a adapter for Canons to mount these lens. gotta look for it.


fastest shutter speed is at 1/500 sec. by the way, 1000 DTL has a fastest shutter speed of 1/1000 sec. the shutter sounds heavier then my 7D, but cant be like a Leica M3.


on the side is a switch to choose sport metering or average metering.


luckily or not, the camera had film in it. a fujifilm 400. i opened the back cover without noticing so i think it got fwaked up though… we’ll see when it gets developed. i need to learn how to develop film now. i want to try!!


Mmmm Jealous,

one sport photographer’s gears for Beijing Olympic 2008.


mmmm jealous.

Buddy Kent bought the OLYMPUS recently.


he bought the E420 with the ZUICO 28mm F2.8 lens. the camera is nice and compact with a lot of features. i like it how the white balance can be adjusted with the temperature within this class range. or am i been lost in the old models? hahaha its only 10mp, but its 10mp. how many people needs an 60mp Phase One digital back? well, i want it, but not necessaryfor me. the contorl buttons are simple and coordinated.

E420とズイコーの28mm F2.8を彼はゲット。このカメラ小さくてなかなか。個人的に好きなのが、このクラス内でホワイトバランスが色温度で調節出来るってのが好き。それとも最近のって全部出来るの?俺って時代遅れもしかして?ww。画素数は10メガピクセル。されど10メガ。一体世の中に何人の人が60メガピクセルのPhase Oneを必要としてるのさ?まぁ、俺欲しいけど。今の自分には必要無いので。コントロール系のボタンもシンプルで使いやすいよ。

now lets compare the camera with my old old, ooold FUJIFILM point & shoot camera. lets how the old COMPACT digital camera is…


lol, that old camera is humongous hahahaha
