    I am having so much fun designing and testing parts of and to my new camera, that I was wondering if there was any interest i me blogging about it. I am testing all kinds of materials and so on. I am kind of re-inventing the wheel as some would call it. It will be a very un traditional ULF camera in the end.

    I'd be interested in seeing some pictures/diagrams at the very least.

    Those are the best kind of blogs (in my opinion). I like where people actually DO something :smile:

    I agree with Alan. Though I may never do this myself I love living vicariously through my fellow enterprising shootists.

    You could give the apug blogs a try: http://www.apug.org/forums/blog.php this is the official blog system put out by vBulletin, it is the first release and will be improving quite a bit this year.. I decided to go with this system since it ties in perfectly to our forum software. I had tried several other systems in the past and they caused a lot of grief..

    I started a blog when I started putting my new camera together too. I did it more as a record for myself rather than imagining that many people would be interested though. However, if they are, it's there to see.

    And so would I.
