This Saturday, chance to get your portrait taken. Kamra #1interchange is available for most of the day. #SatPort


Acquired digital camera

Fundraising Sept is successful, after looking at both Canon M6 and Sony RX100iv, decided on this one, mainly because of the compact size and lense quality (plus the EVF!). Thank you everyone for the support, I should have better quality documentation pictures on field trips soon. One thing for sure, I need to sayang (care) this camera.

Rebuild #4Woodie

#4woodie Kamra, is getting upgrades, rushing to get this ready for some trials before #KantaJapan. This is the only box camera I've built from scratch. Planning to convert this Kamra into a real Brazilian #LambeLambe, at a larger format too. Lick lick camera! Although it has the single top rail only (monorail system) something developed in two of cameras built for Kanta. Hopefully it'll be a very efficient booth camera, versatile for different sizes too, from small 2.5x3.25" to any size or orientation within 6.5x8.5". Marriage between Kanta, Kamra & Lambe and more. (Hako Kamera Japan). Will probably rename it too. #KantaPortraits #KantaBoxKamra #afghanboxcamera #LambeLambe
