idle_hands: what are gels?

Gels are pieces of colored plastic that can withstand heat without melting that attatch to studio lighting. Rosco makes nice gels and you can order a sample pack for free and they will fit over an on camera flash unit if you want to experiment.

idle_hands: i'm saving up for the fog machine...


Fog machines are pretty cool. BTW, I ordered that remote switch, the deluxe one, and having it sent overnight.

I found out the wireless remote for the Canon 10D is $430! That's farking outrageous.

It's a proprietary plug that Canon uses. It's known as a N3 plug. Yes, it's a raping.

Our house is full of random old stuff. My dad's an electrical engineer and he's collected random things over the years. I've got more, but the limit's three.

Thanks.

veruca: My used processor collection...


I had done the same. Broke out some 386's, 486's, and a slot PII, but really didn't care for the pics so I looked for other stuff to shoot.

I like how you did yours alot better than how I had mine set up.

Great minds and all :)

My pII slot is sitting here next to me. I wish I could figure out how to capture the hologram...

K1000 for $300!

Wow, I paid $50 for one a couple of years ago and appropriated another from work when we switched to digital.

Anyway, least the new Pentax remotes are not too expensive. I also have the pinouts on my page page. See profile. The cable switch F, I measured myselt. The cable switch CS-305 a fellow photgrapher measured.

BTW, the Pentax IR Remote F is the same as for the the earlier HP 912 / Pentax EI2000. I just tested it with my new *ist DS. Also, the battery is user serviceable contrary to Pentax.

I should have search my work archives for this one. I have taken hundreds of pics of telco equipment over the past 11 years.

Thanks! I got a whole history lesson on it. I am amazed that it was all done by hand. It's much older than I am. He pulled it out of a PDP-8E that's in our garage.

2005-08-10 10:45:27 PM  
stupido $300 is what a Pentax K1000 is going for around these parts (nova scotia) canadian dollars. you got good scoops i think. i'm not sure i understand the rest of what you said...

Esterbrook 1555 (Gregg shorthand) nib, found mounted on an Esterbrook J fountain pen, the section of which is displayed in the photo.

Old fountain pens really are amazing -- sadly I don't have a Parker 51 to photograph.

JeffTL: Old fountain pens really are amazing

I love fountain pens! They're all I could write with when my hands were bad from Carpal Tunnel. I've got some old Schaeffer ones around, along with some of the kind you dip instead of having cartridges. I was surprised to find disposable ones in the stores these days.
