Some updates...

There will be an outdoor sports event on the day of our outing at Tanjong Beach, Sentosa. It's just getting better, isn't it? The event starts at 9am and hopefully, it will still be on when we eventually get onto the island itself. ;)

Check the details here >> http://www.lifesabeach.nusartsclub.org/

With so much fun install, PM me your interest now. :D

Make the timing earlier then :p

Anyways 1.5 hours isn't a lot for me, I'll probably take up only 7-10 frames :p. (Yet again, I'm using a Film camera lol)

3. For the challenge sake, for the SLR feel since a roll film would be 36 frame only.

5. Yeah! But SLR you can't view the pics unless you develop it. :)

Earlier. I scared people cannot wake up. It's weekend, bro. And our Jimmy bro still have to work through 1 hr when his official knockoff time is 1pm.

Why? Mainly is because we are doing a simulation of Film SLR using a DSLR.

Why 36? Because one roll of film can only shoot 36 shots.

Why no previewing? Because there's no such function on film SLR.

Ultimately, it's a challenge and yet fun. Up to the challenge? Join us if you are interested. :)
