Look what came in the post yesterday: it's the Superheadz Fat Lens
Black Slim Devil 

I like how unpretentious SuperHeadz cameras are.

I do think I'm officially joining Lomo Matrix, so I needed another 35mm camera.  Yes, I know, any excuse to buy another gadget. :)

My friend at the office, Mac, is a brilliant photographer, and he took the photos for me. Awesome, right?  He made the camera look even prettier.  I'm so excited to test this one out.  I'm just wondering, though. I have an expired (2009) 400ISO film - do you think the saturation will still be the same, or will the expired film have too much of an effect on it?

Gyeongju field
I've been wanting a Superheadz Fat Lens (which is a remake of the now defunct Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim, which was known as the "Poor man's Lomo LC-A") for a few months now.  It's pretty cheap, so I may actually get one before we head out to the beach or something.  In the meantime, here are a few pretty fat lens photos that I'm crushing on over at flickr.  This summer, I should definitely spend on better film to get the kind of color saturation that I've always wanted in photos.

Eat Real Festival 1
I'm pretty sure you can spot a trend in here. :P

Yes, it's true.  I just purchased the new Fuji Instax 50S aka Piano from Photojojo

I do not know how I feel about it.  I mean, Polaroid is still my favourite, but I am just too impatient to wait for The Impossible Project's PX-680 film release (some time in May, or so they say -_-).

Oh polaroid, I will still be waiting.

In the meantime, Husband and I will be enjoying this camera for our spring/summer adventures.

I love cameras - I just really don't enjoy having my pictures taken often.

The Fuji Natura Classica - a damn expensive 35mm point-and-shoot camera that takes lovely LOVELY photos in low light settings.

I'm obsessed with finding cameras such as this one simply because I would love to own a toy camera (well, I don't know if this qualifies as a toy - pseudo toy) that I can use during dusk without getting photos shrouded in, well, darkness.  Here are some of my favorite flickr photos taken with the camera:

Regents Park
Las Vegas

Spare room
I especially love the last one because there's something so warm and crisp about it - I can imagine the photographer waking up to this one morning and just feeling so inspired about what s/he sees that s/he probably just grabbed the camera just to capture the moment. :)

Diana, relaxing under the sun, in Bohol, Philippines.

I am in a hunt for Diana accessories - specifically flash and adaptor.  But finding one that will go with my Dreamers has been proven difficult.   Miss Jane of Lomography Canada suggested that they swap my order, when I do order, with their spare white one from their Diana Colette kit. 

In search of a matching flash, I came across a brilliant idea from Elsie of A Beautiful Mess.  Earlier this year, she added limited edition hand-painted cameras to her shop, The Red Velvet

Isn't it lovely?  Here I was only wanting to match the colour of my adaptor and flash to my Diana Dreamer, when there is a bolder way of expressing my creativity... think of the possibilities!

Honestly, I do not know if I am creative and bold enough to successfully do my own version, but we will see, I suppose.

Until next time.
