I had some fishing rods come into my work the other day, a regular customer brought them in asking if I knew anyone who wanted it, I don't know anyone in the area so I said i'll stick them up in my unit as we get alot of people in...

Anyway, one is a carbon fibre pole extender thingy... so I looked at it and took it home, and this is what I've come up with, something I've wanted for a long time, and it's as light as a feather even easy to hold with a 1D on the top. Just got to extend my remote cable and away we go. Will be great for a 60D/70D with the screen they have.

My very own 'camera on a stick' :lol:

@ Richard & Jonathan ~ thanks for the feedback & insight re SSD's.....gives me confidence to factor such into future(?) plans :)

@ Dom & Wayne ~ it was a gardening accident ~ doh! Viv had been loosening up an old shrub stump she had cut back about a month or more ago. When I came home from work last Wednesday she had trenched around it but it was still solidly in the ground. We used, depending on angle & access, both the axe and the hatchet to cut back the roots to get it rocking a tad...............then came my undoing > the Pick-axe!!! I said I will just get it under the root ball to get some much needed leverage but the angle was poor and I did not spot the sawn end of one of the stumps.

As I brought the Pick down my hand struck that cut end (and a couple of other bits?) splitting open the top of the finger between the first and second joints (nearer the second) with a 'V' shaped gash . Sorry a bit long winded for something in that last action it took all of less than a second to happen :lol:

Suffice to say the wound is healing well & that worries me not at all (does not even look like there will be that much of scar?) but there is still some swelling and it has affected how much I can bend it. So as you say Dom remains to be seen how it pans out once the swelling has completely subsided ~ right now I cannot clench a fist as it will not bend fully in. I am quite sure I could now hold the camera & press the shutter AOK now, just a case of how sore it would get in prolonged shoots??? Just have to be patient and let it get fully better before being concerned about long term impact???


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Powerboats are fun to watch and shoot (always enjoyed seeing them in Guernsey & Jersey) .............I especially like when you get daylight under them with the propwash extending out behind them :D

Ah! necessity is the mother of invention but you could rather than use a dSLR with tiltable screen use a............drat I cannot recall what they are called by brand but you mount unit on the optical vf and in one of the version of the device it had a cable connected screen to look at for "live vewing". If I recall and can find a link I will post it :)

Edit ~ this was not the one I recall but heh..... http://www.red-door.co.uk …reless-viewfinder-II.html (external link) :D

Cracking piece of DIY. How did you attach it at the top? I presume not just gaffer tape :)

It is just gaffer tape, the head is still attached to the leg that sits in the tripod, so that keeps it in, the tape just stops it swivelling, will see how long it holds, but I think I may have to drill the carbon and put a nut and bolt through in the long run. :)

Ouch, I hate gardening unless it involves using some large machinery or a power tool.

A few years ago i put two of my fingers from my left hand through the fanbelt on a running Land Rover. My fingers went round the pulley between the belt and pulley. A stupid thing for a mechanic to do i know. The only time i have ever flaked out, and was lying on the drive for im not sure how long. I came too and just shouted for the missus. I still to this day havnt told her what i did. I cant believe i was so stupid.Didnt look bad at the time but the next day my hand was so black i thought it would fall off. Even after all this time if its cold, i cant bend them for a couple of hours. But once moved all is well. Im sure everything will come back in time.

Hello all!

Sorry for my absence! Been crazy here with bringing up Isabelle and now being back at work. She is 8 months old now

Quick question. I've bought a 60d yesterday, and have bought spare batteries but want to get a battery grip for it, but can't really justify spending £150.00 on a canon one. Where is the best place to get a OEM one?

Hello Kay, nice to see you back. Isabelle certainly looks happy infront of the camera.

I had a grip for my 450D from amazon. I think it was only £30-40 with some batteries. It was fine to be honest, and worked well. The only thing i found with the aftermarket ones was the knurled wheel to do it up wasnt as good quality. Other than that i couldnt fault it. Try to buy from the uk too.

It's a good drive and a good company. Personally, we use Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD's - they read a little faster than the Crucial but they write at over twice the speed. Probably cost you £30 more.

BTW - Hi all - apologies for absence but been a bit busy of late

That is interesting keep toying with getting an SSD or upgrading my computer........list of wants is endless

Very nice, how come they don't get covered in dead insects?
