Guess what’s wrong with this taxi stand. Yes, that’s Pertama Complex, where I got my Vivitar 2x teleconverter for Olympus Zuiko mount.
The first subject I managed to snap at 1/500th of a second and 420mm at F11, was Grace, using the Olympus OM-2000 with the 2x teleconverter and Olympus Zuiko 70-210mm F4.5-5.6 (effectively a 140-420mm F9-F11.) Interesting what the teleconverter does to bokeh. Even more interesting is how little chromatic aberration there is (I left her shoulder untouched.)
Oh, and the Olympus OM-2000 was loaded with standard Kodak ISO 400 film.
With the Vivitar 24mm F2.0, I could fill up my full frame with 16 floors!
This abandoned place is the Pekeliling flats near the Titiwangsa Monorail (and Titiwangsa STAR LRT.) Reeks of all sorts of smells, but the wind takes it out. Once in a while.
With the same wide lens, my hand kept making a guest appearance. Asyraf disapproves. When manual focus is tack on at F2.0, images just pop!
And now, for digital photography.
…I don’t think I’d want to take more than 10 minutes to compose the lighting for a shot, though.
“Ma our apartment has been broken into!”
Xian Jin, shot with the Q1 in infrared. I’m not sure who shot this because I don’t remember shooting it. I reckon it was using the Vivitar 24mm F2.0 lens (144mm equivalent crop).
At this point, you might be wondering – hey, wasn’t the Vivitar 24mm F2.0 on the Olympus OM-2000 film SLR?
Well, the Q1 has a homemade adapter to support Olympus Zuiko lenses. 😀
Grace on the Q1, in infrared.
The ghost of Rames!

Kingsley is more than happy to bask in available light.
Grace eyes on, looking rather… pigeonly.
There’s something about Grace.
I now end this second part with film pictures.
What happens when you underexpose, at 1/500th of a second although the meter tells you you should shoot at 1/30th of a second? You can salvage this much detail (after noise reduction!)
smashpOp tells stories. Check out everybody‘s expressions! (Colors retained because there’s something magical about the exposure.)
Hey, that looks like Asyraf’s style! Not exactly rule of thirds. Oh waitaminute, Asyraf did take this shot.
Those of you who were there will probably figure out what is next in this series. Part three, yo. Part one was intentionally devoid of people.
