水调歌头 – 苏轼
What a great way to end a weekend
Gakkenflex dressed up with mt.
It was totally random and I wasn't really expecting to watch any of the matches to begin with; just thought I give a try on my Pinnacle TV stick, surprisingly I was able to get a really good quality reception on RCTI.
It was a good match, both teams were attacking but missed quite a few chances. Strangely, I found myself rooting for US team.
Went out to buy a dry cabinet today. Mostly motivated for more storage space than actually needed to keep dry.
Ended up with a Digi-Cabi DB-036 (it's a 30L) from John 3:16 for $118/-.
The relative humidity stayed at 20% after running it for a day, that's even when the door was left opened for a couple of hours. That convinced me that the psychrometer is not working. True enough, took it apart and immediately saw one piece of resistor like part has came out. Made a random guess and "plugged" it back into one of the many set of holes, and viola, it worked!
Finally found time to work on my Gakkenflex today after it arrived almost a week ago. Other than the shutter piece which I couldn't figure out from the instructions in Japanese (solution), everything else was pretty straight forward. Overall took me about an hour assembling it at a slow leisurely pace. Next: to decorate it with some MT tape
Shot with my new Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f1.4 on EP-1 at Moo & Alex's church ceremony. My "failure rate" is still too high. Shooting with manual focus definitely needs a lot of practice. I'm still too slow thus missing quite a few shots and mis-focusing the remainders. For the very few acceptable shots, I simply love the colours and the details this lens brings.
The other challenge is the 40mm range, using it on EP-1 which is a micro 4/3 format, means actually shooting at 80mm. Below is an example of how I "missed" it totally. Couldn't get Phyllis into the frame because I couldn't step back any further as someone was standing behind me.
