    we might have to end up shoehorning this thread into a wiki by the time we're done. as an anarchist and blower up of every thread i touch, this pleases me! :) /guy
  • you are so right about that! when i started i had to troubleshoot at the component level and luckily i knew electronics since i was a ham. the altair 8800 i helped build and the heathkit kits i ...
  • thanks so much--i really enjoyed reading where someone took mostly different paths and yet we intersected late in life (and at the decs although we moved from the pdp-8e's to hp-3000s and tandem ...
  • i'm not as old school--my start was building what is considered the 'first pc', the altair 8800, from a kit. but programmable calculators (hp) before that. then 'mini' or (now called) 'midrange' ...
  • Replied in My ISP.....
    it's good you still have a local copy of the structure. i used to run my own server and the very first site i built using keystroke html in the early 90s is all still in a folder on my mac and i ...

    here's some data i was able to pull up from that wayback machine calendar page using 12 nov 2007: https://web.archive.org/web/20071112132452/http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~parsog/photo/software.html ...

    http://www.geocities.com:80/parsoguy/ is this page outdated? i'm trying the wayback machine and it led me to that which seems to have links although i didn't try to follow any of them yet. i know ...
  • we figured out that guy is a few years older than me, so by default he gets guy v1 and i have to settle for guy v2. of course we all know that the 2nd version of something is always better than ...
  • it's super smooth. did you just shoot 24fps burst mode and combine the frame to create a video? or were there special tricks you had to employ along the line? tks, /guy
  • i bought like 3 cages before i bit the bullet and bought the sony. they were all like $20-50 and one or two would have saved me money on the filter adapter since they had 37mm threads, they all ...
  • yeah, back when we got ours, sony had the lock on accessories though. those mft and 'c' mounts floor me though and attests to how much the sensor is admired. i only have a few mft lenses which ...
  • if you really want to be outraged, price the rx0 camera and its accessories. $350 for a cage and $150 for a filter holder are only two examples. of course, huge video production outfits are the ...
  • mine just arrived. i'm not that favorably impressed, but it's not entirely underwhelming either. doesn't feel that solid, but then again the handle is designed to split, so it can't feel as solid ...
  • .... which i am--just not in hardware and especially not hardware this micro-sized. still, if they'd offer to install it or a 3rd-party would do it, it might have influenced my decision to sell my ...
  • tks for your review. i did indeed just now reorder one. if nothing else, amazon has the best return policy of any vendor. /guy
  • i had this on order since the day the rx100m6 was released, but just cancelled it yesterday. i just kept thinking of the ways they could have made it better and more useful such as using bluetooth ...
  • yes i did. but the mounting location on the front window of my car about 10" above the dashboard combined with a 90º very sunny day did it in. i learned to find shade to shoot from if possible, ...
  • personally, if i knew i had less than 2 minutes of video to shoot, i wouldn't even bother pulling the camera out. luckily, about 4-5 minutes is my sweet range and since i don't shoot concerts and ...
  • very helpful post, as usual. thanks! i would never have guessed the lens would take that long to clear given a temperature difference of (i'm guessing here the hotel about  72ºF to 100ºF) nearly ...
  • i don't actually own this particular one yet, but still might spring for it. but i do i own the 3-legged thing billy punk carbon fiber tripod and their trent monopod and i have the neo air heads ...
