I finally got around to pulling apart my broken Canon Demi S half frame camera to see if I could get it back up and running. I found a repair manual online for a slightly different model of camera and started dismantling. There was a major difference unfortunatley in how the front cover came off which would have saved a lot of time and trouble but you live and learn.
I got it all back together (with no extra bits left out) with the initial problem fixed but another problem arose which meant I needed to pull it al apart again… Lets just say its a work in progress 🙂
Luckily while I was doing this I was also bidding on another one online 🙂
This image is a bit of a filler for today (sorry)… Why you ask? Well…
Yesterday when I got home from work and was checking stuff on the net I came across Amanda Palmer who was giving some tickets to her Dresden Dolls away if you tweeted your name and reason you wanted to go. Being slightly cheeky I tweeted that I had a 57 Rolleiflex that wanted to meet her and even though I just missed the cutoff I got a ticket but told I owed her a photo 🙂
Well I took Rollei along and even though there were some signs saying the usual don’t take photos or recordings I busted it out and took about 3 films worth (Amanda Palmer told me to)
Im currently developing those films and they will make up a post either later tonight or early tomorrow.
So if you like the Dresden Dolls come back and have a look shortly 🙂
By the way the show was freaking AMAZING! Thank you Amanda Palmer for the ticket!
Half Frame pano of the housing estate destruction at Pomare in Lower Hutt.
I haven’t done one of these for a while…
This one was taken from Fort Buckley on the night before we did the painting with light.
Some more shots from the Demi Half Frame.
The light at the cemetery was awesome just as the sun was going down.
Well kinda the day before christmas and in some parts of the world when I publish this, the day before the night before christmas… Wow that was pretty confusing…
As you can probably guess the girls are all pretty excited and riled up (all 3 of them, big one included).
One last shopping foray to complete for the girls to get each other a present and then its time to kick back and relax… At least until Boxing day when I’m working again.
I had a half frame lunch walk around yesterday with a borrowed Canon Demi, Cheers Fergus. Something like 48 shots in under 10 Minutes!
Yes I put my hand over the lens a couple of shots and Yes I had to turn them all in Photoshop cause I took ion the wrong order but apart from that it is a pretty fun camera to shoot with.
Cheers to Nige for inspiring me with his Super Rad images!
