    Hello Nikonistas and a good Wednesday to everyone. A little behind-the-scenes shot this time, showing one of my camera drones on the set where we were shooting some commercial vehicles. This one carries a Micro 4/3 camera body, and was using a very nice 12mm Oly lens. This shot of it was with a backup body on a long Nikon lens (D600 with a 200-500) that I keep handy for you-never-know-what when I've got everything else rigged up, usually for wider shots. So if you've been itching to show photos of your photo gear, maybe this is the week!

  2. only one shot of my BMW R1200GS LC that within the past few weeks carried me and photo stuff to New England, Nova Scotia (Cabot Trail), and Mt Washington (and back home). I was rained on by both Maria and Nate--all part of the "adventure."

  12. As some may have figured out I like to chase bugs, and one of the things that helps is a macro rail. Unfortunately, mine, actually the base from an old Minolta bellows, does not have a quick release on it. I made a pad for the tripod, but too cheap to buy an adapter for the other end, decided to make my own. Of course I could buy a cheap one, pad and all, for about thirty bucks, and at any kind of wage I've exceeded that monkeying around, but.... shaper shaping.jpg

    There's an old saying that you can make anything on a shaper except money. Perfect.

  13. It's fun to do even if it's a waste of productivity, and it makes my equipment smiling clamp.jpg smile.
  14. I haven't finished filing the edges, and maybe I'll put some black paint on it too. But it works. Look out bugs, here we come! clamp in place.jpg
