it hasn't come yet!
I am guilty of gearlust. Eversince I started swirling within the mists of film photography. I have a total of 5 cameras now. One is digital. Four are film. And now, my birthday-slash-Christmas gift to myself will join the film family.

It's a Holga 35mm AFX. The regular-film version of the holga/woca, which takes these kinds of pictures using 120 film. Sorry if I'm boring those who do not care. I am yammering. I just want to rant. Because maybe getting this little box will make me happy. Maybe it will give me back some zest for living. I am very much hoping. The wait is killing me.

I bought it last week. It's been shipped. And it's not here yet! Darnit.

    actually i'm just happy that you're much into film photography :) i always felt photographers had to grind their teeth there first before the luxury of digital. those were the days... haha. it was one of the few hobbies i actually had you know.

    Hmmm.. reminds me of overhauling/cleaning my old school Canon EOS SLR. Film is expensive! Then again, it's worth it :) Ok, I have to justify it to my wife :D

    jenni: haha ang bigat nun if i bring all of them! i'll probably just bring two for you :))

    qroon: hey, if you buy expired film, you get 50% off. and developing is like 55 bucks lang per roll. then there are labs that scan to CD in bulk. there! justified na!

    vina: oh yes, else i wouldn't blog...

    K: yup. additional to the cost of the item, the seller charged me insurance and courier. i haven't gotten the bill yet, so i don't know if there are any hidden charges...

    dez, expired? hhmm... tempting! kaso nagtanong ako kung magkano ang cleaning ng camera and lens, around 3K sa Hidalgo. And the technician is like.. "Wow, oks na lens to ah..." mukhang interesado pa..

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
