I went an did it… I splurged on a new camera for my videos. Having used a camcorder up until now, this time I went DSLR which I’ve wanted to do for some time now. I used to be really into photography and have an early Canon EOS 400D, with no video options.
For once, I did a lot of research, and landed on Canon EOS 70D or 700D hopefully the former. The store didn’t have a 70 in stock, and I didn’t want to wait for them to order and get one, so I ended up with a 700D, which covers all my needs.
More in depth post as soon as I’ve used it a bit, and can say I have an honest opinion.
Hey guys and gals, long time no read.
I’m still going to the dentist (yes, it’s taking forever!), and I’ve been having other issues leading to me not writing or making anything.
What I have been doing, is a boatload of thinking and planning. A while back I bought the domain http://www.defiance.no, without any real plan for it. I have decided to use that site as where I post articles, images and videos of my projects. I’ll be using this site (geirandersen.com) as my personal site and blog.
There’s nothing there as of right now, but I hope to get started on some old write-up’s shortly.
No project this weekend, but maybe I’ll get a tip-video or two going… I got seriously derailed by an emergency visit to the dentist! I truly hate going to the dentist! Turns out that a weeks worth of growing pain in the jaw/mouth, was two teeth in dire need of a root canal job. This will set me back $1000 – $1500, and that’s just great now before Christmas.
It’ll be a few weeks of pain and anguish, but hey…Hmm.. Couldn’t find a real good upside other than pain relief. Hopefully I won’t be set back from pain, so I’ll be able to shoot another project video.
I decided to make a “new version” of the zippered pouch, simply because I felt I could do better. My camera setup isn’t 100% ready so I couldn’t record my latest attempt.
This is the finished pouch this time, and I do feel like this is heaps better than the first one. I went above and beyond on this one (spending far more time and effort than needed for a test). Continue reading “Zippered pouch v2.0”
My sewing experience is fairly limited, but I do learn rather fast. I have never attempted to sew anything “big” and certainly nothing with a zipper. However, as I bought that new sewing machine a couple of weeks ago, I felt it was time to test it on something decent. Continue reading “Sewing a pouch/box”
I haven’t had a chance to get a real project on the go yet, but I have spent some time getting organized. I don’t have a whole room to use for my hobbies, but I do have a corner in a semi-large space. Continue reading “Getting organized”
Been a few days since my last post, so I thought I’d write a sort of a “summery”.
Most of my time has been going towards research about RC and specifically HPI Maverick Strada 1/10th MT Evo. Continue reading “Not much going on”
I am a DIY person, no two ways about it!
If I can make something myself, rather than buying, I will.
If I don’t know how to make it, I’ll educate myself so that I eventually can.
Some obstacles where I live (Norway) are: Continue reading “Melting pot”
