The Aquapix Waterproof Camera is just a simple plastic camera with plastic lens, but it surely won't disappoint you! Let me tell you and show you why after the jump!
Last month when all in a sudden my family announce to go on a vacation in Perhentian Island, Terengganu, Malaysia I desperately go out to find a waterproof camera that could snap good, underwater pictures. I’ve heard about the waterproof Aquapix Lomo, and with my tight budget I think the camera would be perfect.
With the help of some friends, I found a gift shop that sell Aquapic Lomo for only RM30 (USD9). With so many colours to choose, I went confused but at the end I picked yellow colour.
This camera is very simple with fixed aperture and focus. Here are some specifications:
28mm lens, f/9
Shutter speed : 1/100
Use 35mm films
This camera comes with a waterproof casing which is detachable. It could dive up to 3 metres. This is some pictures taken during my underwater trip. I use “Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 ASA”: Both camera and film did not disappoint me.
I took some photos without the waterproof case too. And I think the camera is quite good. I love the plastic lens.
The next time you find yourself wandering around town with your Lomo'Instant camera, here's a neat trick that you can do: choose a specific area and quickly snap an instant photo. Once it develops, hold it in the exact position or angle where you took the instant photo, and take a standard photo using your favorite camera. Does it sound confusing? Ah, well ... let's just show you how it's done! Check out the photos after the jump.

If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
