I selected a couple of pictures from my expedition to Mount Licancabur to be shown in my gallery. Althoug we didn’t succeed in reaching the summit and diving the crater lake, the trip left deep and vivid impressions. We’ll have a second try for sure.
I was diving the area south of Port Sudan towards the Eritrean border. I used the trip to test dive computers and to do some research on the position of a wreck I’m looking for. Pictures of the trip will be shown in the gallery soon.
I am in the process to evaluate a converter that allows to power Olympus cameras (and others, with appropriate voltage settings) from Powerbanks, that provide up to 2000 mA at 5V through USB sockets.
If the tests are successful, I will present the solution here with cabling and a 3D printed housing.
I have been on an expedition in South America. We wanted to dive a crater lake at 5900m altitude to test outdoor and diving equipment. Sadly, the weather was too bad to achieve our goal. Nevertheless, I had a great time in Bolivia and Chile. During the next few days, I will process pictures from the trip and upload them to a gallery on this site.
I am intensely working on a project for the next two weeks. This prevents me to be online as often as usual. Please apollogize for any inconvenience caused by late responses to inquiries.
Finally, I made it happen. After several years of planning, sketching and research, I was able to take the photos for a new project. With the great help of Reinhard Wagner, I took a picture series at his studio in Rocksdorf on December 16th and 17th.
Now it is time to select the best shots and prepare them for printing. Thanks to the highly professional team that helped me to create great pictures. After selecting, processing, printing and framing the pictures, a series of exhibitions in Austria and Germany is planned. More about this in a couple of weeks on my blog.
I’ve been travelling Indonesia for six weeks. I spent the time with diving, testing dive computers and visiting friends.I also took loads of pictures that will be sorted and processed to be shown in my gallery.
I wasn’t online very often. The islands of eastern Indonesia are still very remote, regarding network connections. Depending on weather or simply the availabliity of a stable electrical power supply, the netwoks are unreliable and sometimes won’t operate for several days. Please apologize for delayed answers to requests. I’m back now and response times will be again as short as usual.
Olympus presented the new µFT camera flagship as a prototype. Technical details are very promising. First reviewers pointed out, that the missing accessory port doesn’t allow to use teh electronic swivel viewfinders.
There is a solution to this problem. The receptacle for teh eyepiece is very similar to the one of the predecessor. That means, that my angle finder adapter I built for the E-M1 will also fit the E-M1 II. Therefore, the optical viewfinder VA-1 can ve used with the coming camera!
Finally, I found the time to build and test a first batch of USB-Mouse emulators. It fires a left mouse click when shorting two pins on the PCB.
The device is available in variants to provide features for most of the common usecases. For more details, have a look at my USB-HID-adaptor page.
