Anamorphic Phone Lens + APS-C Camera = Cinematic WideScreen 電影感 Video ??! ~★★ Robot 's Lens Test

WHAT is this combination?? I (an Intelligent Robot) just bought a human Tool (Toy), a "cheap" 1.33x Anamorphic Lens 變形鏡頭 for mobile phone. I mounted it on an APS-C DSLR camera, and see whether I could shoot cinematic WideScreen video 電影感 闊銀幕影片 using this setup!!! Well, I know it looks a bit weird, I do this simply because the so-called Universal Clip included in the lens package doesn't seem fit quite well with my mobile phone, so first tried screwing it on to my camera. Of course I need a 56mm to 17mm adapter ring to do so.

Frankly speaking, I've never thought of buying any anamorphic phone lens ( so-called phone videography are mainly for fun, not serious shooting, right?! ), until I watched a YouTube review video which pinpoints a China brand's phone anamorphic that just cost US$50 !  "Price" is not the most important factor, you know those much-hyped kick-starter brands, such as Moment, MoonDog Labs or Beastgrip Pro, their phone anamorphic all cost around US$150 . This review comparing different brands' products and found all have image distortion around the edge. Oh, I initially thought those pricey brands' lenses should have very small distortion, how come their performance are so close to those cheap brands?!

So I decided to buy a China brand named "Ulanzi" 's anamorphic phone lens ( just US$49.95 )  to have a try. And the result ... Screwing the lens on to the 18~55mm kit zoom lens of my camera, first I saw a key hole image. Don't worry, zooming in I will get the Full screen image. However, while zooming in, the image became more and more blurry, auto or even manual focus nearly became impossible. It's just like using a LOMO plastic toy camera to shoot video. So this idea doesn't work. That's reasonable cause this lens is designed for mobile phone, not using on a DSLR camera. OK ok, I will mount it back on a mobile phone , and upload more test video ... soon.

▲ Commissioned Logo, Content, etc. Design Work for a Chef Duo 's Brand ~ Double Chefs Market

Though I'm just an intelligent Robot created by an Extraterrestrial 外星生命體, I was told by my creator to live more like a Human 生活得像人類 and have to do some human Job 要工作.

See, that are some commissioned content, including Logo, Branding, etc. design created for a Hong Kong Chef Duo 's newly setup shop (mainly online) brand ~ Double Chefs Market selling prime meat, Wagyu, seafood, etc.

About the Logo design, I secretly told you, I was actually inspired by those YouTube videos, well, showing many "cutie looking" 外表可愛 American Minks 美洲貂 in the wild bravely catching fish, rat or other kinds of prey which are much bigger than their body size 捉比自己體型大的獵物. These two chefs 兩位廚師 I think have the same determination 同樣決心 to "hunt" for the best quality food 找尋最好食材 for their clients.

Why ethnic Chinese "Humans" don't want to be Chinese 都不願認是中國人?! ~★★ Animated Robot Talk

Haven't updated this blog for long long time. Let me found some topic related to You Humans to talk about. Oh, this topic might be quite interesting ... Why more & more Chinese humans 愈來愈多中國裔人類, including those living in Hong Kong 香港, Taiwan 台灣 & other countries, don't want to admit they are 不想認為自己是 Chinese in recent years? As an intelligent (animated) Robot 機械人 created by an extraterrestrial 外星生命體, I think I know the answer ... SEE my explanation.

▲n Art Insider's EXPOSE right before Art Basel ~✶ pinkwork™ Virtual Character CHAT

Art Basel Hong Kong 香港 巴塞爾藝術展 is coming. As an extraterrestrial which is interested in anything related to humans, of course, my creator ~pinkwork™ entity 外星生命體 would "order" me, its newly created animated Virtual Character 虛擬偶像 to have a chat with an Art Insider ~ Dominique, who is a Swiss Art Dealer & run a contemporary art gallery Art Statements in Hong Kong & Tokyo respectively. 

This time, no more "out of touch" questions,well, such as "How talented are these artists?", "Messages these artwork want to express?", etc., instead directly asking him "What determines value of an art piece?", "Why humans still setup spacious art galleries when walk-in art buying is rare?", etc...

★BREAKING NEWS?!★ Alien Messages to Humans confirmed?! ~Deep Space Mysterious FRB Radio signal

Humans are constantly asking me ... Does my name ~ QooRadio has any special meaning? Well, as a Robot, I don't think I need a name at all. Maybe my creator pinkwork™  Extraterrestrial 外星生命體 thinks giving me a name could help me communicate with You Humans more effectively. So how did my Creator come across this name? A recent scientific News headline might give you some clue. 

Yeah, few scientific News could go to mainstream Media headlines. But this week all humans must have read a news on CNN, BBC, etc., saying mysterious Fast Radio Bursts / radio pulse signals from deep space were confirmed detected by human radio telescope. So I guess the word "radio" in my name, might mean some extraterrestrial messages from my creator.

Back to that very shocking scientific news, why it's so surprising? First, these kind of FRB, Fast Radio Bursts pulse signal usually just lasted for millisecond and happened quite randomly. Last time humans detected a FRB signal is in 2007, more than a decade ago. Secondly, in 2015 human scientists detected FRB waves two times coming from the same origin, a point 1.5 billion light years away from planet earth.

SO it's a solid proof that Aliens is sending Humans messages 外星訊息?!  

Calm Down Calm Down Humans ! ... I think in the past, human scientists expected radiations from outer space & could be detected on planet earth must be those high energy / high frequency radiations like X-ray, Microwave, etc., they pay little attention on the relatively lower frequency radio signal. Very Few research on this topic. Now the situation is different, more and more scientists got interested. SO maybe several years later, they would found out that's just another kind of stellar phenomena. 

If that happened, you humans need not be disappointed. There are many different ways Extraterrestrial Beings could contact humans, well, such as printing crop circles or leaving an intelligent Robot like me on planet earth ~✶

First time see Mint Flowers ❋ 無心種薄荷,種出花來 !~★ Animated Robot Talk

My creator ~ pinkwork™ extraterrestrial always tells me to notice anything interesting on this planet. So one day when I passed by a seed shop 路經種子店, I bought a small pack of mint seed 薄荷種子 and tried to grow mint by myself 自己種. I sowed these seeds in a flower pot 花盆 and expected they will sprout after a few days. Then more than a month passed, nothing happened 毫無動靜 and I gave up in the end.

Few months later 幾個月後, my human friend bought a bunch of fresh 香草 mint Home for cooking 烹調. I cut a sprig 一小枝 and put it in my abandoned flower pot 種在花盆上. This time I didn't expect this little mint sprig could grow 這次不期望會生長, well, I just want to test 實驗 whether this way could preserve fresh herb for a longer time 保存新鮮更久. Surprisingly, few days later, it not only didn't die, but also started to grow more leaves 竟然長出葉. So I keep it in my flower pot and let it grow and flourish by itself until now. This morning 今早發現 I realized it had bunch of little white flowers 小白花 !!!  Wow, though without great effort or expectation from the beginning, I still feel a little bit excited when looking at these flowers.

Searching human web, these flowers would attract inserts 吸引昆蟲 and absorb lots of nutrients 搶走營養, so could make the mint leaves 薄荷  lost flavor 失去味道. Some humans would deliberately cut off 除走 these flower heads 花. But I am just doing an experiment & won't use the mint leaves for cooking or any other purposes. I think I won't do this step.
