We are in times of crisis. My budget was over and could not buy more toys for the camera. I do not know where it appeared how to get a neutral density filter for 5 euros to go down 10 steps. That does not sound so bad. These things tend to happen when you have a tight budget or rather close to zero because you’ve spent it before in other photographic devices. Finally, in these was when I came looking on Google I found 2 links: a video and a Flickr group . The fact is that the video that you see here is a little roll, look at minute 4, I was an individual who had made ??a neutral density filter. Well not that it would have made it clear but had managed to adapt a glass of some kind to the target.
The truth is that I convinced the way to solve the problem. I remembered what a friend told me long ago and that was when it was sunny, rayban put in front of goal … as were those too wide because it managed to cover almost everything and reduce the effect of light. In short, a hack. The fact is that looking for something else I found this link. On Saturday our friend Ruben Toquero told us how he built his home ND400.
Basically the requirements are crystal welder, an adapter ring and a little glue. The glue we had better allow any speed glue stick glass and metal. We give a few drops to the outside of the adapter ring so that when pressed against glass welding.
Leaving aside some linguistics, and returning to the art, without a mirror cameras are bringing us more of a headache for bloggers (a term certainly applies in Spanish ). When referring to the cameras with interchangeable lenses that have decided not to use the mirror reflex, we have many alternatives:
EVIL, English Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lenses: In this case the definition is very clear, and contains the main factors that determine these teams. The problem we find when we think of cameras like the Olympus E-P1 or NEX for Sony, who have no electronic viewfinder or even as an option.
CSC, the English Compact Camera or Camera System Compact System: This option, which is gaining weight over the previous, obviously the viewfinder and focuses on indicate that the camera belongs to a complete system. Although it may be more complete, can be misleading to novices who do not know photography use the word “compact” (which has nothing to do with size), or “system.”
Camera without a mirror: It is perhaps the simplest way to talk about these cameras, but once again can lead to mistakes, and that there are many mirror cameras without falling outside the definition for not having interchangeable lenses (from mobiles to the high-end bridge) or by using other display systems and approach (such as telemetry).
DSL (Digital Single Lens) or DSC (Digital Camera System): A mixture of the above, that arise in the first case of cutting the end DSLR, which defines a digital SLR.
We chose the first of the terms to define the category by being the first to be popular, but here I dare say there is no good solution. CSC perhaps more accurately, but drag the problem that always have brought the compact, that the term refers to the size when they are small is not essential for entering the category.
I hope that this article is a little more clear what is the best way to get to certain parts of our team, but sometimes we have to make some allowance for the rigors of writing. For my part I can assure you that every time I recriminéis to talk about “mm equivalent” I will return a pointer to this post.
