    the P&S ones looks underexposed and the Digi one looks soft (OOF or shake )

    if only Orchard look like this! The deco gets worse every year.

    now that you mentioned it, it does look soft..... (my monitor's going bad, so things are a bit blur by default )

    aiyoh... don't tell me the Star Ferry is not stable!!?!?!?

    actually found the lightings a bit boring too. cos of very similar colors used.... guess, they're trying to save costs. economy really feels bad and there were lots of sales everywhere. I got a good quality suit for <S$90

    For the Yashica, did you use EV compensation? I just used Yashica T with slides. Amazing shots. Love this camera.

    The 602 shot is a tad overexposed.
