Mirrorless Camera shoot for Sharon Au

by on Jul.23, 2012, under photography

Many people have asked if a mirrorless or hybrid camera is good enough. When the Panasonic Lumix GF5 was released, I loaned a set and asked Sharon Au if she would help me with my little experiment. The project soon blew into a full scale commercial shoot with David Gan from Passion Hair, Keith Png from Hide & Seek and Chris Ruth from Muse b’Art contributing their precious time and talent to this project. Big thanks to Air Furniture for letting us use their location, Cathay Photo for the wonderful wifi-capable Rotolight ANOVA lights and Panasonic Singapore for the loan of the Panasonic Lumix GF5.

Add Link to Facebook Plugin

by on Jul.20, 2012, under Uncategorized

Many would have wondered why my blog hasn’t been updated for a long time. Since I’ve started actively using facebook, it has been too troublesome updating the blog and linking it to facebook. And the comments are not linked.

Luckily a recent revisit I did for this turned up the plugin “Add Link to Facebook” which is supposed to integrate and automatically post articles up to a facebook profile wall or public page wall. It synchronises the comments as well. Now this makes sense and I’ve just installed it and giving it a try.

Creating a clean windows ‘ghost’ image

by on May.08, 2011, under technology

I still use the word ‘Ghost’ due to the success of Norton Ghost many years back, which was one of the only choices then to create a Windows image so that you can ‘Unghost’ it to get back a clean image. The fastest computer is always when it’s ‘clean’ before you start installing various software and when you start using as various files will be written into the system which will slow the system down.

Thus the trick is to partition the harddisk into 2 parts (C: & D:) drive.. have windows running in C: drive and our data in D: drive. I tend to save the setup at different stages as images in D: drive. So that I can choose to revert to the clean images when my system slows down.

I took a look at the various notebook offerings in Singapore and found the Samsung notebooks well configured for this process. The partitioning process is built-in and cloning mechanism is provided as Samsung Recovery which saves you the first 2 steps. Neat :)

Basic Setup

  • Partition Harddisk in to C: & D: (with Easeus Partition Master)
  • Install System Cloning software (ie. DriveImage XML or Easeus Todo Backup)
  • Install Google Chrome or Firefox
  • Uninstall Norton software (Trialware installed, rather use a good freeware anti-virus)
  • Install Avast Anti-Virus or Avira Anti-Virus
  • Turn off Windows Defender (Replacing with Avast or Avira)
  • Turn off System Restore in Computer>System Properties (Replacing with a Imaging software)
  • Move C:\users\[username]\folders to D:\[username]
  • Clone System (I call this the ‘Clean’ image)

Optional Setup

  • Install FastStone Image Viewer
  • Install TeamViewer (You can try the portable version)
  • Install Wacom drivers for my tablet
