It’s hard to find an Olympus VA-1 angle finder. Therefore, I did some research to find an alternative. The Seagull universal angle finder hits the bill. It is available, reasonable priced and it got a mount for adaptors. In addition to the large number of adapters that are already shipped with the angle finder, I developped three more.
Oh yes, Mr. President. My buzzer is bigger than yours. Its working, and it makes people happy. It trigggers a camera instead of nuclear weapons. It brings fun and happiness without killing somebody.
It is horrible to watch a few madmen to spread fear and violence while starting wars. We can’t fence our nice little world good enough. One day war will be on our doorstep. The same war we already allowed for too long to exist. I therfore say a loud and clear NO to war and violence in any form. No matter if it is lead in the name of a god or for any kind of good cause. This madness has to stop now or our world will burst out in flames you won’t be able to control anymore.
I gave the LED Ring Controller application a face-lift. It now supports both dslrBooth and Breeze. Configuration has been streamlined. To ease the installation I wrapped teh application in a setup image.
I therefore uploaded the printing data to my Shapeways Shop. You may order a filter holder as 3D Selective Laser Sintered model directly from the shop. The filter holder isn’t as sturdy and doesn’t look that smug but it’s much cheaper.
Finally, the lid for the battery compartment is available for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II. You may order it as spare part at via davinci, item number VP924500. Currently, delivery time is said to be 4 to 6 weeks.
With this part, if properly modified, you may use the BLH-1 battery adapter with the battery compartment closed. I ordered one and will write a modification guideline.
Sometimes you have to go deep for a shallow dive. I was shooting pictures with Harald Hois in a medieval vault. The vault is partly flooded, but lat weekend, the water level was far below usual. It was therefore difficult to move without stirring up the sensitive silt layer at the bottom. Nevertheless we were able to take a few nice shots.
