    I have been flat out working... not posting photos. missed you guys. I have however been perfecting my light painting orb spinning rig and firewool spinning technique. So here are some links to what I am up to and some images http://blogs.msmvps.com/mickyj/blog/2015/06/14/light-painting-with-orbs-and-firewool-spinning/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9xhhs5qg6w

    Toshiba Flashair

    Hello, Recently I bought a Toshiba FlashAir SDcard. Combined with my CF to SD adaptor and some software called Snowy, I now have my camera SD card contents copied automatically to my laptop via Wifi. I have turned my Canon EOS into a Wireless camera. The video, Raw and jpg files are all copied accross. I started doing some digging and found out that there are no actual Australian Distributers for this item. I made contact with the overseas supplier whom has asked if I would like to be a distributer. I like the product so much (32gb, Class 10 with non obtrusive wifi easy to setup, fast, works in more than just cameras, supports wireless n - What's not to love?) http://www.toshiba-components.com/prpdf/6431E.pdf http://www.toshiba-components.com/FlashAir/ Whilst I know that there are competing products out there that do a similar job (this supplier also does the Flucards) this one just seems more polished. The issue is, I need to order a large quantity of these upfront to be a distributer. I want to be sure that there is a market out there else, I will have these sitting around for a while. Are you guys interested ? Especially if I give discounts to Atomic Forum posters? - :) There are a few other forums I will pose this question in as I want to see what the real market is saying. My aim would be to have local stock, sort out any warranty issues locally and give local (english) support and hopefully good prices. Thanks

    Thankfully I have used my camera and lens elsewhere and can't see any problems. no obvious dust on the body or lens. None when looking through the glass. I did stand with the wind coming from behind and was a distance from the dust. I would be more cautious next time :) (or not do this event at all). There would be loads of camera phones that are now stuffed:) Yes, I shot in Raw. thanks for the idea, and feedback.

    Thanks. I have to agree about the kid being cropped out. On the day, it was really hard to keep clean and also avoid all the other people blocking the shot. It was a really busy day. Here is another of the same people but not as appealing.

    I wanted to take my daughter out on a day with difference. We went to the color run in Adelaide. I had every intention of wrapping my camera in plastic protecting coverings but in the end, I left the camera naked and it managed to stay clean. Here are some of my favourite shots.

    New version of Cryptolocker Malware is here :(

    :) Yeah, I recall this one. I had a few clients get this one. Cryptolocker seems to be the current nasty in the wild. Oh give me the days of the keypress and Junkie virus :)

    This bit got me "2. Can you make a discount? Unfortunately, no." What's unfortunate ? Is that your cost price to do the work and unlock everything? there is nothing unfortunte about it

    I wish I had the money to fly to the Ukraine to work out where this person was. I would have a few words for them
  12. A new flavour of Cryptolocker came out 29/5/2014. It locks down the victims files and the person in charge wants $1000 USD to give the files back. I know that everyone here is cautious and suspicious of emails, attachments and links. Think about your friends and family whom are not so savvy. Do yourself and them and bring them up to speed about the dangers of the internet. Here is the latest information I have gathered http://blogs.msmvps.com/mickyj/blog/2014/0...w-and-improved/ Something a little more formal that I wrote on the original version http://www.crn.com.au/Feature/364753,uncra...yptolocker.aspx Here is a link to a Cryptolocker prevention kit http://msmvps.com/blogs/bradley/archive/20...ention-kit.aspx be safe out there !

    Thanks. This was my first outing with steel wool. I saw some people whom tried it (on Youtube) and burnt themselves, just before I went and tried it. I was a little nervious. In the end it was so much fun I kept trying new things and my wife even came out to watch. She is never interested in my hobby. The framing was actually hard. Where I did this was pitch black. It was 70 kms from the nearest large city. Very little light polution. I pointed a torch at a stick to get focus. Then I clicked the shutter on a 10 second time delay whilst I tried in the dark to find myway to the water line. When my shoes were wet, I knew I was there. Shutter open on bulb after the 10 seconds so I had to light and spin very quickly. When it all died, I had to find my back to the camera and release the shutter. Finding myself in the center of the photo was a pleasent surprise.
