I have 25 years of programming experience, going back to the Apple ][ days and Vic-20s and so on. Wrote my first commercial app (something I got paid for) in 1982, and I wrote a locally-successful game for the C-64 in 1985. I work in telecom, and have a company of my own. My hobbies currently are programming, RC model aircraft (planes and helicopters), rifle and pistol marksmanship, and photography.

comment Capturing fast moments, such as bullet
We can't reduce it to 100 feet per second though, that's slower than paint balls - the answer is off by at least ten times. All my handguns are over 1000 feet per second, the rifles in the 3000-3500 range. Just add a zero to every number in the answer. Also, please add some safety information - NEVER place yourself in front of a live firing line. Put your equipment out there and risk it getting shot, but don't you be anywhere in front of firearms.

This shows up as soon as you open the screen? What happens if you leave the screen up all the time?

comment What is the legal consensus on “pinning” photos using Pinterest?
Pinterest doesn't actually do that though. USERS do that.

Which is part of the beauty of life and photography. There's always something new to learn!

comment What is the legal consensus on “pinning” photos using Pinterest?
Nope. Not aware of any tests of this principle. There hasn't been any. This is the best answer they are gonna get. It's basically the same answer as the other down-voted one. The only legal framework we can apply is the user agreements, which is covered in both answers right now. You don't lose your copyright though, when posting to the popular sharing sites.

comment Does a viewfinder cover really make a difference?
This only applies to true reflex cameras, right? In most digital cameras today, the viewfinder is a video view, not optically connected to the imaging system in any way.

comment Are there super-macro lenses for getting “inside”?
But it isn't up close, it's taken with a zoom lense! That's how they are fitting that small area into the frame. I have some guns, I'm gonna try this - but not with live rounds in the guns!

comment Why is there an ISO setting when shooting raw?
Minor note: increasing the ISO does not increase the number of photons hitting the sensor. It increases the strength of the resulting signal from those photons. Only the lense aperture and shutter speed can change the amount of light you're getting - but you can be more sensitive to that light.

comment What do I need to make my own camera stand with a 40" horizontal arm?
What she is using looks wicked expensive. I have seen stands like that used for machinery in manufacturing. It looks custom made though. Machinists are always looking for jobs to do. If you can find a machine shop in your area, someone can build something like that for you, but be warned, it's gonna cost thousands of dollars. They usually won't design it for you either. Why don't you contact the person in the video and simply ask where they got that thing?
