Tripod adapter for 55-210 with DH1758 extender.
Flash arm for macro.
Excellent. They look really effective.
You should Rolling Stones them. (Paint it Black)
I love it! Penny-tech!
But clearly, you have waaaaaaaay too much time on your hands.
It's always interesting to see how people modify their equipment. My wife always teased me about me modifying everything I bought. Here are 4 enhancements I've done to my NEX6.
This is a cable release I previously submitted to this forum.
This is a spacer I installed to allow the LCD to move down below the base. Before the quick release would interfere. The spacer also moves the release a little forward. There is a contact point at the bottom of the mounting ring which gives a lot of stability the the whole mount.
I had a lot of trouble operating the A/B switches blindly while looking through the viewer. I added a drop of epoxy to each button. Not only is it easier to find the button with my thumb but the height made it easier to operate the button. Be very careful if you try this. If the epoxy goes outside of the switch to the case then the switch won't function.
With the lens shade on it was difficult the squeeze the inner grip to release the lens cap. My fingers slip off the grips. I took a sharp thin knife blade and cut little peaks along the edge. I believe they call this sipeing (sp?).
Nice idea, but isn't is safer to stick a small piece of adhesive tape on the button? I had much less trouble finding the buttons when using the viewfinder after I stuck a GGS protective glass on the LCD: the rim of the cover helps me with orientation.
At the time a piece of tape didn't come to me. Yes, it would have been safer. But I do like the height of the epoxy drop. You did get me thinking about the protective cover to the LCD. I have a sheet . I'll put that on my list to do. Thanks.
I'm retired so about all I have is time on my hands...lol
As a non-retiree, I say this: you lucky, lucky man!
Also, really nice handiwork, it looks very effective.
I'd say you've got some impressive woodworking skill and a good imagination too. As Jaf-Photo said: really nice handiwork!
Nice work folks, love seeing what can be created.
WoodWorks, does you ID mean that you are a woodworker too?
If so, Have you ever shown any of your work in the O-T section?
Well, my avatar name is just a play on my last name (Wood), but I have breathed in my share of sawdust. This is a photo of a plywood sailboat I built four years ago. The hull was from a kit, so all the major pieces were precut, and there's a lot of epoxy and paint to hide the flaws. But as you can see, she does float.
Nice, I've never tried a boat. Here is my latest.
Ignore the bad photography (done with P&S).
Lamp table I made for my wife, Claro walnut and Zebra wood.
Wow, nice work.
Woof! That's beautiful. I bet your wife loves it.
Hi great work and thanks for sharing. Can you give a bit more info on constructing this remote release shutter button you made ?
Not sure if you were asking me or Larry but here is a link to a post about both of our cable release adapters:
Here are the pieces to the release. The tricky part is attaching the cable release to my aluminum bracket. As stated, I cut off the end of a cable release extension and press fit it into the bracket. I used a vise with aluminum jaw protectors so as not to damage the threaded piece. Also, because the shutter button on the camera is plastic, I glued a piece of stainless to the top of the button to minimize wear.
A standard 6-32 straight thread will work with the tapered thread on a cable release.
That's what I used.
Hi thanks for the details.
What is the " standard 6-32 straight thread " and where can I buy one? Would that work with nex-f3?
