Hikess in film prices!!!!

URGENT MESSAGE TO ALL FILM/TOY CAMERA LOVERS!


Due to the slow response from the Obama Administration, and while Standard & Poor's downgraded U.S. credit rating from AAA to AA, investors are losing trust in U.S. government's ability to pay their bills and the global stock markets have been rocking hard for the past week. At the same time, France, Italy, Spain and Belgium have introduced a ban on short selling for 15 days on bank shares in response to sharp share price falls this week.

This controversial practice is causing confusion to the investors while the U.S. and U.K. refused to follow suit. TFA suspects that due to the uncertainty in the global market today, Kodak and FujiFilm has announced that they will enforce a price hike of 15% on all of their films!!!!!!

Nah just joking, it wasn't because of the market =) but it is true that films are now at least 15% more expensive. This bad news has hit all of us hard, we know that and we really do.. Silver price is soaring up into the sky and hence the production cost of films increased, all of us will have to bear the rising cost.

TFA will try our best to dampen the impact on our wonderful supporters, and at the same time, we will sell off all our films at the current price while stock last!! =) We promise no price hike at least until the new batch comes in because we love all of you!!

So if you plan to stockpile your films, better act fast!!! TFA is always here to help! email us for further enquiry at the.film.age@gmail.com  =))

Actionsampler

Let's get in for some ACTION!!!

ActionSampler is a very interesting camera by Lomography. It has four lenses instead of one, so it feels like there are four eyes are staring at you.
Q: So how does it work?
A: The total exposure takes 1 second, with each lens being open for 0.25seconds.

Q: What is the result?
A: Four photos in one frame! (:

Q: So can I take during the night time?
A: Daytime is best recommended. However, the ActionSampler Flash model has flash, so sure! You can take your photos at night with this model.

Q: What film ISO is recommended?
A: ISO 400 is recommended for bright daylight. ISO 800 to 1600 will be good for shade or evening shots.

Q: My photos are blurred...
A: It is normal!!! In fact, ActionSampler is intended for this purpose!

Q: What are the available colours?
A: Clear, White and Chrome.

TIP: ActionSampler is not for portrait shots. As the name suggests, it is for ACTION. So get ready for some action and use it! ((:

Want some action? Let us know!!! ((:

CLAP!

As mentioned in the Necono Cat Shaped digital camera post, Superheadz is very well known for many unique designs cameras and photography related products. Today, we will introduce you to a new released product - CLAP!
I first saw it in Japan. I went to Necono Shop by Lisa Larson, and saw these colourful cute small thumbdrive-lookalike camera! The shop assisstant said that it is a new released product. There were 6 colours on the shelf - black, white, pink, red, orange, blue.

(There is no green!) It looks like a thumbdrive, not like a camera at all. Indeed it has a built-in USB terminal, which is exactly like a thumbdrive.

I am curious about the name CLAP though. On its website, it says "CLAP YOUR HANDS. Take a photo like you applause for being touched from the beauty of sceneries."

Let's take a look at its specifications:
  • Image format:: JPEG
  • Video format: AVI
  • Image Resolution: 1280x1024
    Video Resolution: 720x480 
  • Effective Camera Resolution: 2,000,000 (2million) pixels
  • Lens: F2.8=3.2mm
  • ISO:100
  • Battery: Built-in rechargeable Lithium ion battery
  • Memory: MicroSD card (sold separately, supported up to 16GB)
  • Size: 35x70x15mm 24g
  • Interface: USB 2.0/1.1
(Please note that there is no view finder. So you have to estimate and snap based on your own fweeellling.)
I was choosing one for my friend (guess who!) and I influenced my friend to buy one for her daughter. haha! Here's my model!
 When we reached home, we were just trying to be funny and see if it will stick to the fridge like a magnet. AND YES IT DOES! It is like a magnet. haha. But be careful, do not place it near credit cards or anything just in case it will spoil the camera.

What a convenient, simple and cute camera right! ((:

La Sardina & Flash

Ok Lomography has a new camera that just hit the shelves in Singapore about 1-2 weeks ago! It sounds latin to me, La Sardina but its not Sardine! It's a camera haha!




And in TFA's point of view, this camera is absolutely attractive! It has a different kind of design as compared to SuperHeadz cameras, and do not underestimate this camera, it is a power pack.

It is a ultra wide angle camera, with multiple exposure and loaded with the most powerful flash Lomography has ever made! The huge flash over there is way way way more powerful than the Diana flash, it has three distance settings, which allow you to have maximum control over your flash photography.

This is an ideal camera for people who just can't take a photo without proper flash, I'll consider this one of the best upgrade from Lomography so far ((:

So is anyone interested? Raise your hands please!! Do not forget to like our facebook page for more photos =))

Holga 120 WPC

Yes its another Holga day today =)) today we are introducing you a rare camera in Singapore, it is not common to see it at all despite it's wonderful features!


The Holga 120WPC, again is a pinhole camera, but this time has a wide lense. The negative this camera produces is an astounding 6×12 (opposed to the normal 6×6 of a holga 120N)! This camera has a cable-release thread for attaching a shutter release cable (sometimes included, other times not). The cable release screw also acts as a shutter release button when pressed, allowing you to take shorter exposures.  Also contains a useful exposure guide on the back, and a few small nobbles on top of the camera to line your shot up, plus a spirit level to make sure it’s level.

if you are looking to take a night shot of marina bay sands, this is definitely an ideal camera, it's potential is way greater than any DSLR out there because it uses 120 film!!

Though this camera is rare, it is also pricey, if you are looking for a cheaper alternatives for scenery photos, please take a look at our Recesky Pinhole, it does EXACTLY the same thing and MORE!!!!!!!!

WOCA the Holga

Wondering what is WOCA? Here it is!



Hmmm... Looks a bit too much too familiar with our famous Holga 120GN eh? Yes bingo! This is the grandpa of our Holga 120GN ((: The Woca cameras are basically the old name for the glass lensed Holgas. So the Woca 120G is a Holga 120GN and the Woca 120GF is a Holga 120GFN.

If people ever ask you about the history of Holga, you can proudly give them a history lesson =))

Fisheye No. 2

I received my Fisheye No.2 from my brother on my 22nd birthday. I was soooooo happy and shocked, as I know it is not very cheap and he was only working part time at Kinokuniya while waiting to be enlisted.
(He admitted that he bought it, so that he can use also. He secretly wants it for a long time! haha!)

Fisheye No.2 has a view finder, but Fisheye No.1 doesn't have. The viewfinder is what makes Fisheye No.2 so "fishy", I think. *laughs*
I spent hours reading the manual which comes with the package, and trying on different styles of capturing special shots using Fisheye No.2. Fisheye No.2 has really cool features! For example, if you select "B" mode, the hotshoe flash will fire when you first depress the button (first curtain), and when you release the button, the internal flash will fire (second curtain). With the hotshoe flash firing first and the internal flash firing second, I can capture the movement and moodswings between these two points in time! An example of photo using this feature of Fisheye No.2:
Cool right! haha!

Who says by getting a Fisheye lens for Holga or your SLR or DSLR is the same as getting a Fisheye?! I beg to differ. Fisheye camera has its unique features and hance able to attain certain photo effects. If you mount a Fisheye lens on Holga, but Holga doesn't have an internal flash, you won't be able to achieve such photo effects.

So, be fishy! Get a Fisheye now! =)) *bloop bloop*

Specifications
  • Approximate focal length: 10m
  • Fixed aperture: f/8
  • Shutter speeds: 1/100, "B"
  • Flashes: Standard hotshoe & built-in flash (powered by AA battery)
  • Multiple exposures allowed
  • Film type: 35mm
  • Size: 10.5cm x 6cm x 6cm
  • Weight: 0.23kg
What is in the package?
  • Fisheye No. 2 x 1
  • Lens cap and strap x 1
  • Poster x 1
  • "Fisheye View" mini photo book x 1
  • Manual x 1
Sorry guys, TFA is not bringing in Fisheye (yet). But drop us an email if you want to be "fishy"! We will see what we can do! =))

Developing films

Hi all!

The Film Age believe in the value of developing the photos and keep it in a physical photo album =) that would retain the purpose of photography: keeping the memory and values of every shoots. The moment our photos are digitized, it will become just part of our infinite data storage and we will hardly ever look at it again because we will keep shooting more and more photos. But what are the values if there are too many of them and you hardly appreciate the value of your shoots? Photography is both a form of art and memory, so developing the photos is important in Lomography and important to The Film Age too.

Therefore, The Film Age will begin its service on helping everyone out there to source for the cheapest and best quality alternative to process their films and develop the photos. If you have any films to process and develop, just pass it to us and we promise to pass the films back to you within 1 week time =) prices will vary according to the types of films that you are going to develop, and we promise to go all out to make it as affordable as possible for everyone out there =)

Let's travel back in time, keep a physical album for yourself and with films, everything is possible =)

Camp OutReach '11 - TuYen Lam, Dalat, Vietnam

Hello everyone!!

Rommel is back from the wonderful trip to Dalat with our beloved HI friends, the climate was perfect and I managed to take some cool photos with my Golden Half and Digi Lomo. I had the most portable cameras in the whole group and I am proud to bring two extremely small cameras with great features =))

Stay tune guys! will upload the photos real soon!!


Here's this amazing raw/unedited photo taken with my Digi Lomo.


Do you guys see the lone tree on top of the mountain? It looked as if there is an aura surrounding the tree and only the tree is clear in the clouds. I had no preview for the photos I took and I'm really glad that it all turned out well =))





Oh and if you enjoy portability, vintage/lomo photo effects, shooting photos without much complicated consideration, not trying too hard to be artistic and let your feelings lead your clicks, then join us, TFA will show you the light to real casual photography that carries memorable values.

Golden Half

MUST TAKE A PHOTO OF GOLDEN HALF!


I was first attracted by its small appearance and the variety of designs. Then, I was very attracted by its unique feature - take 72 half frame shots with a roll of 36 exposures film. I thought to myself: "Wah, so worth it. haha." (Ok, i know im super aunty.)

Then, the more I read about Goldne Half, the more I am interested in getting one for myself. Although it cannot do multi-exposures (which is my favourite), but I don't mind getting a point-and-shoot toy camera for a change. I read up on reviews of Golden Half, and comparison reviews of Golden Half and Diana Mini. In the end, I decided to go ahead for a Golden Half! Not because Diana Mini is not good... but I read reviews that it is difficult to turn the exposure settings which is in front of the lens. Given the fat fingers of mine, I know for sure I have difficulties in trying to turn the settings knob. And I am right! I borrowed Diana Mini from Weiling, and I had so much difficulties in turning the settings knob. It was stuck whenever I tried to turn.

Also, I was secretly attracted to the Green Trees version of Golden Half.

There was once, I brought Golden Half to a pasar malam (night market) to shoot, with the BIG flash unit which I mounted on top, it was attracting a lot of stares. There was this uncle who walked past me, and commented, "So cute, it is a camera? Can take photo meh?" Haha. I nodded my head, and felt very proud of my Golden Half. *nose in the air* haha!

One problem I have with Golden Half is, I ALWAYS FORGET TO REMOVE THE LENS CAP! and I ended up with black shots. -.-

I love Golden Half! It's so small and cute and portable and easy to use. Come on guys, why hesitate? Get yourself a half frame camera today!

Specifications
  • Aperture: f/8,5, f/11
  • Shutter speed: 1/100 sec
  • Lens: 22mm
  • Focal length: 1.5m to Infinity
  • Film type: 35mm

What is in the package?
  • Golden Half caemra x 1
  • Hand strap x 1
  • 35mm film x 1
  • Lens cap x 1
  • Manual x 1
Drop TFA an email if you wish to own this cute pocket size camera!!!

Polaroid Instax Camera

Polaroid Instax cameras, from Fujifilm, is very popular among many people. There are two formats of instax film and camera - the original "wide" format which gives the 60mm x 99mm image, and the "mini" format which gives the 62mm x 46mm image.


In February 2008, Polaroid announced that it stopped production of film. The release of this news caused much upset and disappointment in many people. Fujifilm became the nly supplier of instant films. In October 2009, Polaroid announced that it will bring back its classic instant film cameras.

Why is this sooooo popular among the consumers nowadays? TFA analysed and came out with the following reasons:

1. It's instant.
2. It's unique.
3. It's memorable.
4. It's precious.
5. It's a real photo.

There are different versions and limited editions of Mini Instax cameras. Fujifilm Instax Mini 7s Camera Blue/Pink/Choca/White, Fujifilm Instax Mini 25s White/Hello Kitty Camera, Fujifilm Instax Mini 50s Camera Piano Black, Fujifilm Instax 210 Camera.
Besides the different cameras which you can buy, you can purchase different films as well! There are the classic plain white ones, colourful boarders, Winnie the Pooh and other cartoon characters films!
There are more and more accessories for Polaroid cameras! Such as Holga Fisheye Lens/ Wide Lens/ Tele Lens/ Holga Filter Set for Instax Mini 7s. We have camera bags for mini 7s!

Diana Family

I have blogged about Diana and its clones and our nice friend Weiling blogged about Diana Mini before. So i probably will not go through so much details in this blog post. Do re-read those posts if you would like to! =))

So... what should I write about Diana in this post? Hmm...

I know! The other time, I borrowed Weiling's Diana Mini, and took some nice photos with it. I shall share them here! =))







The last photo is my FAVOURITE!!!
