RAW Pocket Power – The new PowerShot S100 + Viewfinder

IPA Craft & Tools 10 Comments

The Canon PowerShot S90/95 series compact cameras are without doubt one of our favorite ‘real-pocket’ RAW cameras. It is quite amazing the power it packs for such a small, small camera. The only little itch sometimes is that it is an LCD camera, which makes shooting in very sunny street photography weather an issue. How can we improve on this? Ahem, add an external viewfinder like this! PowerShot S100 + Voitglander 35mm viewfinder PowerShot S100 + Ricoh GV2 28mm viewfinder Now if some entrepreneurial person makes a little stick-on cold shoe attachment of some sort, like the S95 grip…

Shooting Hong Kong with the Fuji X100

Derrick Choo Craft & Tools, Reviews 17 Comments

A few weeks ago when I was in Hong Kong (HK), Typhoon Nesat swept past. On Thursday, 29th September 2011, Typhoon Signal No. 8 was issued and the whole of HK basically shut down. Schools, offices, the stock market and most shops closed and transport more or less came to a standstill. The MTR trains ran at a reduced frequency, hardly any taxis or private vehicles were on the roads and the ferry boats, trams and buses stopped running whilst Signal No. 8 was in force. My wife and I ventured out in search for food during the quieter moments …

Bruce Davidson- Outside Inside – Volume II

Derrick Choo Craft & Tools, Photography, Reviews 12 Comments

I felt that my mission in life was to make visible what appears to be invisible and I do that as someone who is blind and comes into a world and suddenly begins to see. ~Bruce Davidson It has been 2 months since I reviewed Volume I of Bruce Davidson’s Outside Inside. I have flipped through Volume II a couple of times over the past 2 months and while I feel that overall, I personally enjoyed Volume I more, the power and intensity of his documentation of the Civil Rights Movement in America during the 1960s in Volume II leaves …

Shoot and Point: Selected works by International Photographers

Alice Tay Exhibitions & Events, Reviews 7 Comments

It was almost accidental that I walked into this exhibition. And I must confess, without any understanding of what I was in for, or what this exhibition was all about, I took away a renewed vigor of what photography means, at least to me. In a world where photography is increasingly made convenient through technology, the magic of photography is not just about capturing moments as they are, but it is a powerful medium for visual story-telling. ‘Shoot and Point: Selected works by International Photographers’ is held at Ikkan Art Gallery in Tanjong Pagar DistriPark. It is co-curated by Andrew …
