I just bought 4 old moving heads. I paid €30 for all four :-D
My tablet has some issues, so I took it to the doc. to have it X-Rayed. Note the different image contrast across the voltage range.
I took an X-Ray of a Gameboy classic. Coincidental a transparent one. This was actuality one of the first X-Rays I took with the X-Ray machine. This picture shows the projection of X-Rays on a fluoroscopic screen (intensifier screen) normally found in X-Ray cassettes. On the right side the Gameboy can be seen.
The column stand in use. The camera shutter is triggered with the foot pedal.
I have an old Sanyo Xacti video camera which I use very rarely. Therefore every time I need the camera the battery is empty. Since I use the camera mostly at home I built a dummy battery for the camera. This post is not meant as instruction but as suggestion how it could be done.
I had parts of an old Durst enlarger and a friend needs a column stand for her animation work. I bought a Manfrotto 323 quick change plate + adapter. After some cutting, drilling, thread taping and a really terrible welding job an arm to mount the 323 was made.
With this the 323 can be attached to the column with the necessary distance.
To ease working a bit further I made an foot pedal based remote shutter release + adapter for Canon SLR.
A fun way to pep up black and white pictures is to modify the colors of the picture. For instance, take this iconic picture of Che Guevara. is is based on a black and white picture. I replaced white with red to to achieve the look of the well know version of this image.
Replacing white with red is not the only option. Using the brightness a white or a black image for the RGB channels allows in total 64 variants to combine into a colored picture.
