Product review from the best blog of Singapore

A package arrived this morning and I was a little surprised because I don’t remember buying any new toy online (unless I did it in my sleep) and in it were some samples of a pretty new product from Thailand … called ‘Kola Manual Color Flash’. So what on earth is it? They are actually pieces of hard plastics in different colors that you can use to cover you flash or the front of the lens … to get cool color effects. The idea is a similar to what you get on a Lomo Colorsplash flash where you change the color filter/gel according to your need. The only difference is that these color filters can be used on any flash … and any camera. Sounds fun!
Each pack Kola comes with 8 different color filters (let’s just call it filter because I don’t know the right term for it) and is about the size of half a pack of ciggies. You can easily throw it in your camera bag and whip it out when you need some extra colors in your photos. A short ‘chain’ is included to keep all of them together neatly too.
I’ll find time to do some test shots using these … perhaps during the weekend. Meanwhile, since I am stuck at my desk and eager to try out a couple of shots … here are some taken with the filters stacked up and shot through the sides. Sorry but I ain’t go no other subject bright enough except my desktop … and … ermm … now everyone knows what I’m staring at everyday on my desktop.
Those who like this and are staying in Singapore, good news is that they are also talking to ThirtySix and maybe … just maybe … Kola will be available locally soon.
