Fujifilm 的 Instax Square

對寶麗來那個 iconic 的四方格式及外框一向情有獨鐘,Fujifilm 那部#Instax210 的格式一真未能滿足, 總是覺得差點什麽的….
那只好一直忍受 Impossible Project 一盒才 8 片的底片、每張要 20-30 分鐘的顯影時間 (說好的即影”即有”呢?) …

顏色不符? (下)

用家們最常接觸到的圖片都不是各品牌的官方圖片,而是在社交網絡、討論區或者在 IM ( 例如 WeChat, Whatsapp, Line 之類之類) 裹朋友之間互相分享的圖片,所以有不少顧客是參考著這些圖片來查詢的。這些圖片大部分都是以手機拍攝,而其實手機拍的圖片不一定失準的,懂利用光源也可以有很接近的效果,但普遍上用家自拍的圖片都是分享喜悅為主,那會花心機去試這試哪呢?而且圖片不是無添加完全沒有修整過,就是按拍攝者喜好修過的圖,種種因素下出現的顏色偏差是很合理的啊。所以當看到其他用家的自拍手錶/錶帶照時,參考外型無妨啊,色澤嘛…..

顏色不符 ? (上)

為何只是示範復刻系列呢?其他款式/產品沒有這些錯覺嗎? 當然都有啊。
但一般我們看圖片看產品時拿個大概就能收貨,例如在選 SLC – 黑色/舊化綠色/金色,等等其他色系分明的玩意時,即使顯示器是偏向明艷或暗淡表現再有參差,成品也不會跟期望偏離,金色也不會變了完全另一個款色,金就是金啦對吧?。在日常大部分時間裹,我們都能接受「大概」,可參巧就足夠。

可是每當挑選復古款色的錶帶時,我們都會突然變了 “色” 魔。

a simple water-proof test on the Panerai Strap

The whole ordeal was done in a manner of complete and utter simplicity, much like us wearing a Panerai to go scuba diving. The eternal abyss was no more than a vase and it’s less than a feet tall. The watch, nevertheless, claims to be a 1000m strong; a very macho number for those of us with an Open Water.

Shop Music !!

We are no classical, that’s one thing we did not pick up during our uni days. Truth is, we are permanently glued to the 80s…a bit of Culture Club,OMD, Pet Shop Boys, Midnight Oil …and more ! Those were the happy days !

Road to 4K Motion Films

The workflow of the FCPX is almost identical to the iMovie, and this makes life so much easier and the transition that much smoother. With the power of FCPX at hand, we’d realised the missing link to open the pandora box was the 4K camera. And so the search for the holy grail began.

26mm Strap onto a 44mm Pam243

The extra width makes the strap look even more “vintage”, so this oversized approach is more suitable on the “vintage” straps. The clean colourful preppy strap is best suited with the exact fitting, it simply feels more right in our opinion. We did a short comparison at the end of the video.

Start up failures

Our business partner in Macau has decided to cease its operation. We had called the Macau Shop as our second shop so as to show our support to him, but in reality the shop was completely independent to Annie Barton.

So where did it go wrong? Anything to everything that could possibly go wrong, did in fact go wrong !!

The incident serves as a rude awakening for us and put us into a new perspective. In addition to the regular business planning and what nots, we have learned a few more new things

Valuation of a firm !!

The question that mesmerizes us is, how do we valuate a company? by discounted Cash Flow? or use the PE ratio and multiplying it according to the industry norm ?? If done so, we would be paying the investor instead, and where is the logic in that? Goodwill valuation seems less damaging and its definition includes “pays more than the fair market value of the net assets” !! Getting more than a fair share is good, greed is very good, and we like the smell of the green !! We are beginning to sound like a desperate idiot 🙂
