Autumn In Austria – With My New Camera

Yup, I’ve finally put up the money to buy a brand new Nikon D810 – and I totally love it! The detail you get from that 36MP sensor just makes my trusty D3s look old and ‘dusty’.

I’ve started taking a couple of landscape shots with the 14-24 Nikkor lens I bought last year – a combination that is worth having.

Looking forward to as many as possibly ‘golden’, rainy and colorful autumn days in the next couple of months.

Back From Vacation

I’ve just returned from my 3-weeks vacation to the Azores – so there hasn’t been much going on here in the meantime 🙂
If you ever have the chance – the Azores are just an amazing place to see! We’ve traveled the islands Sao Miguel, Terceira, Pico as well as Faial, and all of them have at least those things in common:

  • beautiful landscape
  • great food
  • welcoming people

Here’s some pictures:

 

In the next couple of weeks I’ll be focusing on SoftwareAutomation and Invoke-Remote as much as possible, hopefully I’ll have time to put together post on this asap.

I’m building a PhotoBox

Finally I put up some time and started building a “PhotoBox” / “PhotoBooth”. Many thanks to my brother-in-law who’s skilled enough in handcraft to make this project possible without falling apart right away 🙂

The main goal of this project is to come up with an actual use case for one of my old Nikon D2x-cameras, that otherwise wouldn’t leave the shelf at all. Everything is build around the amazing SLR Booth android app – I’ve added a little Raspberry Pi spice (people using the booth should be able to download their pictures to their mobile phones for ~ 5 minutes after they’ve taken a picture).

Once I’m done with it and everything works as I expect it to, I’ll be sharing building instructions and the source-code for the RPi extension 🙂

What is the PhotoBox made of?

  • Wood
  • Screws
  • Metal Coupler Pieces
  • Nikon D2x
  • Pixel C
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Canon Selphy Printer
  • Cables
