On my recent trip to Hong Kong, I was faced with a difficult purchasing choice: to get a Superheadz Demekin (see previous entry) or a Superheadz Golden Half. The Golden Half is an interesting little thing, so named because it shoots 35mm film but at half frame, meaning for a 36 shot roll you get 72. It’s got two aperture settings, f/8 and f/11 as well as a hotshoe for fun strobist action. While I may have bought the Demekin, the Golden Half remains on my must-have camera list.
This means that my favorite pop culture girl has one up on me. Genie Ranada is no stranger to gadgets. She is the lifestyle editor for the tech magazine T3 and is one of the few people I know who’ve been featured on Boingboing.net (no I am not saying why or what for). She has BOTH a Demekin and a Golden Half. She takes great pictures, to boot! Here are some of her Golden Half shots, all taken during the Dec 08 holidays in Laoag, Ilocos Norte in the Philippines. Fuji Provia 100F slide film was used and cross-processed. Enjoy!
If you want to see more of Genie’s Golden Half photographs, do visit her multiply site.
Oh, and this is what the Superheadz Golden Half looks like. If you want one of your own, Oh Shoot! sells them, too.
