About me:

I've been in love with photography for over 40 years.

My favorite form of photography is macro, and much of my gear is of my own design.

I've done professional photography on and off for over 20 years.
Taught 8 years at Midwest Photography Workshops.
Designed 3 scientific digital cameras and 6 lenses.

Author of mImage and (coming soon to the App Store and Google Play) ColorForEveryone.

  • The numbers are wrong for that. If you look at the battery tables at allaboutbatteries.com (which were basically copied from Duracell datasheets circa 2008) Weight of a full fledged NiMH cell (1) AAA 12g
  • Yes, that is indeed what you are, in addition to the sort of person who makes comments based on videos that they never watched, and then attempts to defend their position with another video that ...
  • They used to, but they sucked. More on that in a second. There are other brands of low self-discharge cells that do come in D http://www.tenergy.com/10107 http://www.tenergy.com/10105?sc=59&categor ...
  • Like the others all said, Sanyo Eneloops. Not only are they low self-discharge (you can charge them, put them away for months and they'll still have most of their charge when you go to use them) ...
  • I have both the 405 and the 410. I prefer the larger 405. The 410 is smaller, but positions the camera off center. I built an ARCA adapter that corrected this, like Hejnar now sells. The heavier ...
  • I covered that in another post. CNN only used the word "Taser" once, when they were showing stock footage of an actual Taser. They referred to Hall's device correctly as a "stun gun" and its use ...
  • You're pretty dismissive, considering how totally in the wrong you are. Great link. (1) 0:13, Patrick Hall states "This is the Taser that I used", whilst holding up a garden-variety "stun gun".
  • You didn't click his links, did you? They're titled (1) The Taser Photoshoot Original (2) The Taser Photoshoot Behind The Scenes In ...
  • I do a lot of work with a combo panorama/gimbal system that looks a lot like the Jobu with added capabilities. There's a lower clamp, just like the one on the Jobu, oriented fore-aft, the way ARCA ...
  • I find their claims to be greatly exaggerated, and am in no hurry to try one (for me, that's saying something, because there's not much macro gear in the world that I haven't shot). KPS compares ...
  • Interesting concept. I've done other pain response high speed work (long story, it was product development related) and noticed the same thing. The more prepared someone is for it, the more ...
  • No. Virtually every such product in the marketplace is simply an execution of a BLE chipset maker's "application notes". The thickness is determined by the size of the battery. The battery life is ...
  • Uni-Loc Major 2300 System Bogen/Manfrotto 405 heavy duty gear head Panorama system with a mix of RRS, Benro, and Manfrotto parts 2000, more or less Probably not. I'm a lot more arthritic and ...
  • I'm going to post here and use Mark's form I own an Induro CX-213 (aka Benro C297N6), usually used with either an Acratech Ultimate ballhead or a Bogen 410 "junior" gear head. I like a tripod with ...
  • The photographer had, by his own admission, zero "intent" to create these particular images. He set up for something completely different, and while he was inattentive, a curious primate took the ...
  • The photographer, by his own admission, did not set up any sort of sensor trap. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/jul/04/shutter-happy-monkey-photographer He set up for an entirely different ...
  • That actually refers to rules of evidence, i.e. being caught "in posession" of stolen goods, the murder weapon, the bag of drugs, etc. is a pretty good guarantee of conviction. Quite true. The ...
  • The rule of thumb is that when you close-couple two optical systems, the shorter lens dominates the image characteristics. The 250D is a 250mm lens (that's what the 250 stands for). So, when you ...
  • Tell me about it. I ran into an "artist" who made lamps from musical instruments that he got by the pound. Bought one that he had made from a moderately rare (and totally fascinating) flute with a...
