i love 235 the most
but it always depends on a combination of what it is you’re shooting, and what aspect ratio you think you are shooting for ie are seeing…. just kidding on the last one, but i wish all digital cameras would allow custom guides & masks!

the future is cardboard

As far as future tech goes, I am more keen (& much more likely) to drive around
in one of michele gondrys cardboard cars than in a Tesla…

Can’t find a park? just set fire to your cardboard car!
It can keep you warm (& slowly destroy all evidence) until the cops arrive

But imagine if the same applies to drum kits

meet the cardboard drumkit – its not quite as crazy as it sounds…..

how many parents have bought dreadful quality kids drumkits, only for them to be abandoned?
well now you can use them as kindling!

but its future is what intrigues me!

imagine if someone published a cheap & easy DIY kit to place a piezo element on each fibreglass pad. Assemble your cardboard drumkit, plug it into a simple interface (piezo >> generate MIDI and/or CV pulses and/or electronic drum sounds)

and then?

yes, its a thing

a6300 long exposures

Stream_vs_Sea

Having been cooped up indoors for the last few weeks, this afternoon went for a drive out to the South Coast from Wainouiemata to test out shooting long exposures with my Sony a6300. When I had the Fuji x100s I invested in the smaller Lee Filters SevenFive filter set but never used it much… So when I replaced the x100s with the little Sony I also bought an adaptor for the Distagon lens & today was my first attempt at using the little Big Stopper…

Stream

Most of these are approx 20 second exposures, using manual bulb exposures I just keep varying the exposure until I get something I like…. and I enjoy the slightly experimental nature of it, especially timing it for waves… That cliff on the right was only about six inches tall & very unstable… got my camera strap wet a few times while floundering around shooting this…

One annoying thing with the a6300 is that if I bump the exposure dial at all, it tends to move the exposure setting from bulb to ’30 seconds’ so a few times I opened the shutter with my remote, but when I released it again to close the shutter nothing would happen… And first few times i was like WTF!?! Now I know to double check – ah its not on bulb at all!

Estuary

Very peaceful, apart from getting sonically straffed by territorial oyster catchers overhead!
