wow, looks a but too big eh?
Tokie 11-16 2.8
a second cowl for the 12-24mm to make a filter holder with. Weird, the sigma system has 2 parts listed, neither with a picture... I put one in my cart, it was $10. Put the other in, it was $30, added the first in again a second time, it was $30 then too.... Deleted all but the $10 version and submitted the order, we'll see what happens.
I just ordered an Amvona plexiglass shooting table, which is on sale for $27 today. Should be here early next week.
^ the "table" and plexi are worth the $42 alone though... You can get HD or even harbor freight clips if needed... I'm seriously tempted Geoff...

Just bought a case of wine - Local vineyard near my parents house -
Not my pic but 3 bottles of this one in the case
yeah, I passed as well. That site rotates through stuff a lot, so it'll be up again at some point. I'm loving the softbox I just got from them and WILL end up with that table eventually, just not today.
AT&T 3G MicroCell
Full bars in my office FTW.
I used my dividend and 20% off coupon to get that shipped to the RI store so it's ~$30 out of pocket. I love my TT UD30 but I DON'T have a good harness for it. A TT harness would cost the same as that mountainsmith bag, plus the TT doesn't have a great attachment option so I figured what the hell and I'll try it. My only concern is it's only 4" deep and I'd like my body to fit in it WITH the grip as I use that when I ski... But the UD30 is 4.25" thick and works so I'm hoping this will as well.
Honestly though, the reason I picked this up is one of my arch clients told me over the weekend there's a "very good chance" I'll be shooting one of his projects from a helicopter "in a few weeks"... So I didn't want my mickey mouse TT solution on a paid shoot like that and it was either this for ~$30 or a much more expensive TT solution that wouldn't have done anything any better.
New Turntable! This one offers a USB connection to capture music to your computer, along with software to remove all the cracks and pops from old vinyl. (I actually bought this to help my grandmother, she has a couple of old records her friends recorded in the 1940's, and for some reason they are not available on CD.)
Here's mine - Mercruiser upper pinion gear. Hopefully the last part I need to put the outdrive back together. $140 on ebay brand new. You can't buy them from Merc single anymore and the set is $900.
I couldn't get full bars in my office with Verizon. It got better with AT&T and the iPhone. My office is in the back of a 50 ft long condo made of brick.
Resisting the urge to buy road pedals for it and just reuse my MTB ones. blahhh
Datacolor SpyderCube. Great review of it here: http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/r...pydercube.html
I knew it was going to be small, which will come in handy for bodyscapes and stuff, but it's almost too small for normal usage. I really like the black trap and the chrome ball (makes me wish Lightroom had eyedroppers for setting black points and white points), and I love the concept of simultaneously measuring the white balance for both key and fill in mixed lighting conditions, but the cube faces are so small that I can see flare becoming a real problem for computing white balance in normal scenes. On the other hand, the black trap helps you figure out what your black levels really should be, which helps when you're shooting against a bright white seamless background. The other big issue is that the faces are slightly textured and a bit shiny which I don't like, since that gives it a bit too much of a specular component.
I guess I just wish that they made it in two or three different sizes, with the current size being the smallest option. I'd love to have one about the size of a coffee mug, with more of a matte finish on the faces. I'll post my own review later.
To go with lunch today.
Will, that Jack Johnson album is rad. Pandora found it for me and I love it.
