What the Nerds Do / Re: CPU chips and hardware for sale: Call for interest
« Last post by rohart on March 18, 2019, 23:39:44 »
I've been out of photography for a while, but now I'm back in the loop I find that chipping some of my lenses has become a priority for me.

I've managed to suppress that new-joiner syndrome of providing a life history, and I'll cut to the chase.

I wonder if it would be too much to ask Bjorn/Birna to share some of the technical details of their past work with some forum members if it is not in their plans to continue to produce what sounds like it was a great range of products. I'm referring particularly to the route they took and the methods they used to create and program the chips and the circuits.

I should add that I have no commercial interest - everything I do is hobby or volunteering and both of these leave me well out of pocket.

 Sad to be late to the party, but glad to join the clan !

Savings? ;D
It looks, you can put a coin in his hand, hit the lever on his back, he will swallow the coin.

Very nice wildlife images too, Peter. I like the straws sticking out of the mouth of the wildebeest. Keep them coming.

Think early "Pioneering, woodsy America" perhaps?

Not McDonalds's plastic America.

I love the griddle cakes but the pink platter less so.

Love to hear from you, Ann.
I have been in America once for 14 days.
These are the first homemade pancakes in my life.
And I cooked them just the way I know them: thick and small.
French are ultra thin and huge.
German are huge and thick.
Are there different styles of pancakes in America?

How would you decorate them?

I got a chance to try out the Gitzo GHF2W at a camera fair and it was offered at a discounted price so I ordered it. It seemed to offer very fluid movements and I generally liked the design of it. I noticed there was a safety pin to prevent accidental slipping of the plate so in order to remove the lens from the head the locking screw had to be opened up more fully. I guess this might not be compatible with third party A-S compatible plates and feet. Hopefully the pin can be removed.

Once I get it I will report back on how it works with the 500 PF in practical use.

The Acratech clamp that I recently bought for my monopod head has a detent pin in it and that pin is compatible with my RRS L plates. Plus, it's spring loaded so it will collapse, if need be, negating compatibility issues. The Acratech website says "Compatible with Kirk, Arca-Swiss and many other Arca-Swiss style quick release plates".  I like the added safety of the pin to prevent my gear from inadvertently sliding out of the clamp.
