    Default Off and on

    Hello everyone!

    Love this website...it gets me enthusiastic about photography again. For me, I get all enthusiastic about photography for a while, and then my interest wanes, and I get into lomography, and then once again my interest dies off...then after a few weeks/months, I get interested all over again, start visiting photography websites like this, etc...

    Do any of you get this? Seems like everyone here is hard-core, ear-sleep-dream photography type of enthusiasts!

    Also, sometimes photography can be an expensive hobby...is it you guys sacrifice other luxuries so as to spend on photography? Or...are you just...plain rich?

    Hi daphz~! Welcome to ClubSNAP!!

    I'm definitely not a hard-core photography type of enthusiast. In fact, I'm still a newbie, who'd started photography in Feb 2004! But I do like to hang out in this forum, and chat quite a bit.

    I concur with you that photography is an expensive hobby. Then again, which hobby isn't expensive? Ultimately, the ends would justify all the means!

    You can get lomo cameras from Kino, or Far East plaza. I own a fake cybersampler (not really fake, they just packaged it as a 'TOY camera', and no lomo brand) from SimplyToys at Far East.

    Normal film is used for most lomo cameras I think, at least, I use normal film. Processing is same as usual.

    oh and my fake-o camera is $20. Real LOMO brands ones are $80 upwards...

    btw, do u happen to be kairin from LJ?

    this site is fast-moving man! hey when you say u 'started photography'...means SLR camera huh? hehe, to me, owning an SLR makes one a serious photographer!

    I own an ixus. Don't really plan to get an SLR in the near future. So bulky, so heavy, so inconvenient. aiyoh.

    LJ? Kairin? I think it's by an accident that my name crashed into ur friend's name.
    nope...me none of the above...a fake Lomo does a good job like the real LOMO?

    The only fake lomo camera I managed to find was the cybersampler...for others, like pop 9, holga, or LC-A, have to buy the real one!

    Mine works just like the real one

    I started off with a Panasonic FZ1 in Feb, sold it in Mar and gotten a SLR. Now I have six cameras, I think...

    Why have so many cameras? After all, you can only use one at one time...

    Process slides = $6 plus minus unmounted. One bottle of b&w developer cost $6 plus minus too, for god knows how many rolls of film!

    I think I'll develop it myself...

    Hahah~! When you start learning more and more about photography, you'll start to get more and more curious about different cameras... You can read about RF and MF in the forum. But nothing beats holding it on your hand and shooting with them... and seeing the pictures at the end of the day too. Not about to explain to you in your thread, since I think I'd already went super OT liao!

    I'm definitely in the "sacrifice other luxury" category

    Anyway, if you like photography then you like photography....
    If you are "on" it will welcome you, if you are "off" it will wait for you to come back again
    LOMO, P&S, SLR, DSLR, whatever doesn't matter
