Joy with Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f1.2

I spent a few week earlier to check out the new Nokton 40mm f1.2 Aspherical lens manufactured by Voigtlander. The bokeh and mood were the major factors for me to consider it to replace the Noctilux (at last I sold my Noctilux). I always believe you have to try different lenses on both film and with digital camera to consider whether you like or not. So I decided to get one to try. 40mm is truly something new to me. […]

Film Photography – Why I love it

Tangible asset is a word that I first learn in my accounting lecture. Film to me can have both tangible and intangible factors. I always believe I have to hold something in real life to actually feel it so that I can have a complete memory. Except the real film picture was taken, the way to take the picture in a visual sense, the places and moments happened in the surrounding or even noises are recorded in my mind. I […]

Dragon Boat Race (Hong Kong) – Fujifilm Xpro2

The weather was excellent on last Sunday afternoon. I went to the open area in Admiralty right in front of the Central Government Office together with Fujifilm X-Pro2 and two lenses in my bag, 23mm f2 WR and 35mm f2 WR. By coincidence, I found out there is a dragon boat race competition happening in the waterfront. So I chose to use 35mm because it is more tele and I want my images to be clean and focus only on […]

Peng Chau Island with LomoChrome Purple

A weekend getaway to different islands in Hong Kong is another great options for a warm sunny Saturday. Peng Chau is one of my favourite island though it is not as big as Cheung Chau but the vibe and quietness attracted me to re-discover this little outlier. LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 is a Lomography negative film trying to bring back the impression and colour tone of the famous Kodak Aerochrome. This single roll of film has been sitting together with […]

9 months with Leica M10

After six months of waiting, it is arrived with a huge label on the box printed with “LEICA M10 BLACK CHROME” I couldn’t describe my happiness with words. Because it has been a long mental debate of repurchasing M9 or M240 or just wait for this new camera. This has been the camera I want most after I sold my Leica M9-P and decided to wait for this new Leica digital camera. Honestly, I love Leica in black paint way […]

Switching from Leica M10 to Fujifilm X-Pro2

If you have read about my Photography Journey for the past 8 years. You would have known that I have been shooting extensively with Leica film and digital camera (M8, M9). But recently I made a move. Sold my Leica M10 for a second hand Fujifilm X-Pro2. “WHY?” this is exactly the response from most of my photography friends. And yes, I sold 4 out of 8 of my leica glass too. Because by judging the outlook and ISO performance […]

My Film Cameras and Gears Journey

Endless Gears Upgrade The shallow depth of field or the lack of “bokeh” was one of the main reasons for the change. From Canon 50mm f1.2 LTM to Noctilux 50mm f1.0, my later photography years were a period of endless gears upgrade as I focused heavily on the character of the different lenses. Trying the “King of Bokeh” Summicron 35/2 version 4 was not enough, I upgraded to Summicron 35mm f2 V1, “8 elements”, and this beast has a special […]
