Finally got my anamorphic adapter

A decently well maintained ISCO Ultra Star 2.1(red), quite happy with the purchase and only has a minor chip in the rear element. Might dip some black pain to fill it in the future but it seems to be alright for now.

Useful Birthday Present

I got a Makita “SUPER-HEAVYWeight” Champion Belt, the name is really ridiculous but I must say it is extremely useful.

However I had replace the original Makita leather belt with a ThinkTank belt, the main reason being is that the Makita belt is too heavy duty and it become a little cumbersome for quick wear/release.

Hello world!

It’s been awhile since I setup wordpress, so many years has passed since b2/cafelog.

My original intention was to start a fresh blog once more on my birthday, it was a little silly for a “launch date” for a site that probably no one will visit, but who cares?
