Lomography Belair X 6-12 Globe Trotter is SOLD OUT!

When I was finally decided to take the Globe trotter with snake skin,
but unfortunately it is SOLD OUT.
With only 300 units in the world, 
super limited edition!

Honestly, I am more prefer to the all black,
which is City Slicker.
But after I read the description,
it is just plastic body.
I don't want plastic body!!
I want metal body!!!
So, all black is out of my mind.

I thought to take the snake skin which is Globe trotter,
but due to overwhelming, 
it is SOLD OUT!!
Unexpected. Too fast.
Actually I don't mind about the design,
I just want to metal body,
if the black is metal body,
I would take it.

I choose snake skin just because limited edition metal body.
But now,
I have to settle with brown skin, Jet setter.
Jet setter, I am gonna pre-order you.
With the piggies points that I have,
I only need to pay so little. 
Thanks to Lomography.

Lomgoraphy Belair X 6-12, will this my first 120 format camera?

Lomoggraphy announced Lomography Belair X 6-12 on 18 October.
Only for pre-order,
and you can get 30% discount!!

When I first look at the camera,
I thought this will be expensive,
surprisingly, it is not.
The price is cheaper than LC-A+, 
cheaper than Lubitel 166+,
I'm so surprise.

Yes, it is auto expose,
with zone focus like LC-A+,
metal body, 
Yes, it is, metal body!!!
not plastic body like LC-A+ and Lubitel 166+.

For sure, lower price,
then you can't get feature like Lubitel 166+ and LC-A+.
Maximum aperture of f/8,
it would be great if I have more aperture option to choose.

So, will this the first 120 format camera for me??
Which design do you like?
Lomography Belair X 6-12 Globe trotter

Lomography Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter

Lomography Belair X 6-12 Cityslicker

Actually I like the all black Cityslicker,
but the Globe trotter is limited edition and only 300 units.
So, which one to choose?

Nikon FE with Lensbaby Composer Pro Sweet 35

I got my Lensbaby Composer Pro with Sweet 35 sometimes ago.
This is manual focus lens, 
so to get a sharp and focused picture,
you will need some skill,
this is the problem of manual focus lens,
especially someone like me with spectacles. 

When I look thru the viewfinder,
and thought that the object is in focus,
but actually it is not, 
maybe 0.1 - 0.3m not in focus,
especially when using big aperture from f/1.4 - 4.0.

When I use DSLR last time, 
and I tried with manual focus,
I notice about this problem. 
I thought it is in focus, 
but it is not.

I don't know is it the problem with my spectacles,
or something else,
but I know it is hard to use manual focus.

I love Lensbaby,
but if Lensbaby with auto focus,
surely it will help me a lot to get the sweet spot.

Boom! Sweet spot! In focus!

When you send your car for service

Recently, I sent Peugeot 3008 to service. There is some noise from left rear wheel and braking problem. The story started when that there are no service center in Kuantan to do the job. So I had to send to Glenmarie service center.

Before I made an appointment, I called them to confirm the available of spare part, but they can't let me know how long to fix the problem. How come you don't know that you need how long to fix the problem? Alright, appointment made.

Went to the center on 5 Oct morning, drive all the way long from Kuantan to Glenmarie. Arrived at 10am, wait until 1.30pm, no feeback, and the car still park at the same place. I went out with friend, and call to the service center again to check with the status at 4pm. He said he will call me back on the status. No call back, no feedback.

Went again to the center in the next day morning, I saw my car still parking at the same place. Asked them, and I have to wait. Kind of pissed off, if you can't service and inspect my car on Friday, then don't take this appointment. When your servicing list is too long, please let me know, and I can pick another day, and let me plan. They just wasted my Friday. What for I send the car on Friday to inspect on Saturday? What a lame.

The worst was they just told me that they tighten all the loose part temporary and ask me to made another appointment because they need a week time to fix the problem. Then WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME ON FRIDAY?!!? If you can tell me earlier, then I won't wait until Saturday. Or just because you didn't even inspect it on FRIDAY? What a disappointing experience.

They told me they already tighten the loosen part. But actually I can see what they are doing at the waiting room. I saw they drive the car into the workshop, then park there for 5 minutes, then no body work on that, and then drive it out, later on somebody come to me and tell me it is ok. Gosh. Kind of speechless. If like that, why don't just take your 5 minutes to check on FRIDAY and let me know the answer on FRIDAY?

Car had to leave there for a week, because I don't want to take back the car that still not fixed and make for another appointment. Time wasting. I decide to take bus. Reached at bus station at 2pm, thought to get 2pm ticket and straight away go back, then the girl in front of me, bought the last ticket of 2pm. -_-||| Have to get 5pm ticket. Finally, on the bus, and thought everything will be going smooth. But the story was not finish, bus tire burst off. GOSH. I think I have no luck at all.

Another bus come over and took all the passengers and at last I'm back. I think I can control my emotional quite well, I trained for it. Compared to my previous previous job, this is nothing. Wish me luck, I think I will have luck next time
