After running through 2 to 3 rolls in my LC-Wide shooting "normally", I wanted to try out the Half Frame mask and shoot some Half Frames shots! The results are just as fun and good!
This is the first time that I am shooting half frames. And they are really fun when shot on an excellent camera such as the LC-Wide. Despite the ultra wide angle of 17mm, there is no significant distortion at the edges.
I installed the half frame mask as I wanted to take proper half frame shots and took the LC-Wide on a spin of the Marina Bay area. The half frame mask can be installed and uninstalled in a jiffy. The only drawback about putting in the half frame mask is that I can’t change my mind and switch to shoot Full Frame format. I also can’t shoot endless panorama with the mask in place.
Having said that, when on HF mode, one can get 72 frames from a 36 exposure roll of film (duh!). That’s twice the fun and twice the number of subjects one can shoot. Add on MX and the count can go even higher!
Try shooting half frame and I am sure that you will love your LC-Wide even more!

Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!
