Just a quick post to show the “rig” I put together for my daughter that wanted to use my GoPro for some Selfie stuff and time-lapse. She needed to be able to see herself using her iPhone and the GoPro app plus some extra juice to power the GoPro past 2 hours.

So using existing GoPro gear I had PLUS a small power bank, I created something in about 30mins – see below. Should be easy for her to place on any table and just run it.

Sony A6500 noisy camera clip hack

Ever since I’ve been filming with my Sony AK series, I always get this annoying rattling from the metal camera clips that are attached to the camera. These help you keep straps on the camera but when you take the camera strap off – they rattle and the onboard microphone picks up the sound. 

I didn’t want to remove them since I only remove the strap when film by hand or on my motorized 3 axis gimbal. I had asked some photo groups I’m part of but they just said to “cut them off.” 

“Nope.”

I found this video online and it was BRILLIANT – link below. 

So basically  all you need are the “cups” of in ear headphones – who doesn’t have a spare set for smaller or larger ears? For the Sony, you just remove the plastic black part from the triangular clip and slide those bad boys on. The clips are at “attention” but don’t rattle. And you can still use my new clip system. See the pics below. Click on them for a larger view. 

Love it.

Monster-Con 2016

Went to Monster-Con 2016 with my daughter this year. Had a blast. I wanted to go see the Zombie Pinup content but sadly it was canceled. We did stick around to see all of the people in their costumes (lots of clowns) and since Emmy wanted to take pictures, I lent her my Nikon D7000 and I took my Sony A6000 but shot video instead on my stabilizer. First time doing that but look at the video below:

I’ll post more pics from Emmy once she goes through them, but again, we had a blast.

Elizabeth bought some new living and dining room furniture. We gave our old stuff to family that could use it and I decided to do a timelapse up from the entertainment center. 204 photos later and you get this.

 

Here are pics of our new furniture. Me like.
