Review: Digital Harinezumi 2++ by Superheadz

After switching from Fuuvi’s Biscuit Camera. I tried using Digital Harinezumi 2++ by Superheadz.
This will be my review of using it since July 2018 to October 2018.

Using this camera made me miss my old Fuuvi Biscuit Camera. I have more negative views on the digital Harinezumi now. But everyone has their own views on what camera experience they like.
Let’s start with the good. The camera is cute and it looks like it holding film. It’s small (as wide as a credit card) and easy to store in any bag.
The camera uses 2x CR2 battery. Never heard of this battery size until I brought the camera. At least I found rechargable ones.

The bad. You’ll need a MicroSD card as it has no internal memory. When you want to download the pictures, you’ll need to take the MicroSD out of the camera. This part annoys me a lot. I wouldn’t say I have fat fingers but it takes me a long time trying to get the card out! It’s located on the bottom next to the battries. The flap cover gets in the way.
I also don’t like the look of the pictures. Even if it’s taken during day time or night time or low light pictures, the pictures has too much contrast and it’s grainy. I really don’t like the look and it has a higher megapixel then compared to the biscuit camera. The Fuuvi biscuit camera’s pictures was less grainly and the colour was more dull. Overall, it might be based on personal preference. I’m using to looking at the biscuit pictures since 2015. So I’ll need to practice more with thr Harinezumi and maybe the pictures colours will grow on me. Or I can try and trick the auto sensor with adding different shade of colours on top of the lens.

After researching again, I’ve decided to try out the Fujifilm Instax. I still like using film. I don’t need to develop the film or edit the picture myself ( unlike my BlackBird Fly. I developed the film, scan in the negatives and edit it on photoshop afterwards. This process is a pain and I don’t have the time to do this anymore).
Lucky someone let me borrow their Fujifilm Instax 50S. It’ll give me a good feel if I want to go down this path. If I do like it, then I can invest in a new Fujifilm Instax.

With the next future post, I will no longer be using a toy camera and will move onto instant camera. How exciting! New step in the world of photography. But the next few months I’ll see if I want to stick with the instant film or go back to Harinezumi
I don’t do as much photography anymore, but I’ll like to continue doing the weekly picture post.

It’s finally November. That means I’ve posted weekly picture post for 2 years now. It’s always fun taking picture when I can. I’m hoping I’ll have more fun with the Fujifilm Instanx.

Review: Fuuvi Biscuit camera

Today's picture: Fuuvi Biscuit camera.

I've been using below's biscuit camera for my weekly photo blogs. I've had it since 2013. It's good camera and I like it a lot.
The only bad thing is trying to use it in a dark/low light room. Then the pictures don't turn out good. Other than that, the picture looked nice.
When I took pictures of one object, I would take 10 shots. Because 9 out of 10 shots would be blurry! Fun times.
Fuuvi biscuit camera was a good little camera to take around. The battery would last for 2-3 months depend on use. It has a MicroSD card slot and comes with a USB plug.
Made it easier when I wanted to download the pictures to my PC. It’s nice when you can plug, drag and drop the files to your PC. And if you want to charge it, it’s charged via USB too.
The camera has a video mode too, but never really used it.
I’m going to miss this toy camera and I really wished Fuuvi was still around. When I searched online, the last camera was a lego camera. It’s sad when company’s closes or moves on.

Recently I brought a Digital Harinezumi by Superheadz. I've brought the Blackbird Fly which was create by the same company, so I thought I'll give this new toy camera a try. It's nice that it has a preview screen, because with the biscuit camera, it doesn't have a preview screen, only a peek hole.
The next few months, this blog will have pictures from the Harinezumi camera.
I'll have to see which camera I like more. With the test shots from Harinezumi camera, it doesn't seem as clear, it’s grainy and the contract is bright, but maybe I'm using the wrong settings. Won’t know what it’s like until I give it a try.

Cloud Strife Figure from Kingdom Hearts (Play Arts vol 2) Review

This week's video is unboxing Cloud Strife from Kingdom Hearts (Play Arts vol 2). It's an action figure. 
I had this figure for years but never opened it. So while storing the box, it has a few wear and tear now.

Unlike Figma or nendoroid, this figure had 4 parts. One hand (to hold the sword), sword, stand and figure holder. I guess I've been too spoiled with Figma and nendoroid with all the extra parts, but it was actually a relief to have less parts to fiddle with.
I'm not saying having the expressions and extra hand parts is bad. It's great because you can do more expressions and poses, although I can honestly say I dislike changing the hands around. I always feel like it'll snap off because I'm always struggling with it. Maybe I'm a weakling haha.

The figure is very sturdy and well built, reminded me of the old action figures I had as a kid. It's built to last. Comparing the figure to Figma, Figma always felt more delicate.

Wing and cape is attached the figure, but it cannot be removed. When you push the cape up, it will also push the wing too. You can view my youtube view below to see the movement.

Overall, it's a nice figure. The only thing I hated was the hand, I had such a hard time trying to put the hand back on the arm and there was only one hand!
The wing and cape is nice and it's what you see in the Kingdom Heart game too. But I wish you could take it off.
