LC-A Tunnel Vision Lens on iPhone 5

I didn't test the Tunnel Vision Lens on my LC-A+ RL, because it will take me some time to develop the film to show you the effect and result. So I tried it with my iPhone 5. I just attached on it. Let's go.

So you can see, when it attached with the lens, it become wide angle. Only sharp in the middle and blur on the corner. Maybe it will be more obvious when try on full frame camera. The lens is about 0.45x, that's mean if attached on LC-A+, 32mm will become about 15mm. This is so wide, actually wider than the 20mm Wide Angle Lens.

I want to see some Lomo effect. Let's try with Hipstamatic.

After I tested with iPhone 5, I am so excited to try on LC-A+. But maybe not macro, because the distance is too near, unbelievable near, is about 2cm. Can it be? Will I need to stick the magnetic ring on the camera? Still thinking about it. 

Received my Tunnel Vision Lens

Since Lomography online shop offer the 50% discount for LC-A accessory, then I take it. I always admire the Tunnel Vision Lens, but the price pull me off. I made a move this time to get this lens.

I don't know how was the lens, but I received a big box from the courier. When I opened it, only got a small grey bag in the big box. Put such a small thing in a BIG Box? Just wonder. No surprise from Lomography. Hehe. I thought would have something else.

Just a small grey bag in the box
The lens is so small, just same as my thumb size. 4 magnetic rings are included in the package. Nice. I thought just 2 rings, but the end get 4 rings. The lens is far more smaller and lighter if compare to the Wide angle lens (which is one of my favorite lens).

So how was the performance and effect? Stay tune.

From Day 1 of Chinese New Year

Yes, Chinese New Year is the big day for Chinese, and also holiday for all people. Happy Chinese New Year and Gong Xi Fatt Chai. For me, Chinese New Year is some sort like days for me to rest and relax. I am not tension or stress, but I need rest and relax too. Especially when working 6 days a week, receive order, sort out documents and etc etc, and also working out so hard for six packs and still can't get it. Just wonder.

10 February 2013 is the first day of CNY
So I wish you all Happy Chinese New Year with a good fortune and prosperous year.

Warm wishing from  me
Officially, I am not married. So I still can receive Ang Pao. But I am no longer a kid, who gave then I will take, who don't then I wouldn't mind. Ang Pao is not about the amount of money in it, is about fortune, luck and prosperous from the elders to the young one. They wish you with their best.

Ang Pao, at grandmother's house.

When I was young, I used to gather with group of friends. Now, I still, but the heads are lesser. Those who are married, got more tasks to do, so they didn't join. Those who just got a baby, even got more harder task to take care of their child, so they are too tired to join. So just left those that still not yet marry, that's me, to gather together. But when I am getting older, I feel like I should spend more time with family. I have to admit, I met my friend more than my family for the whole year. Brother and sister are working outstation, they seldom come back.

5 prosperous at home
Eating is great in Chinese New Year! All kind of food and biscuits. So then, where's my six packs?

My favourite
Reunion Dinner, Home cooked, done by me and sis
We had dinner at restaurant too. Lau Sang is a must in Chinese New Year, to have a great fortune and prosperous year.
