  2. A touch of history

    by , 02-02-2008 at 09:13 AM
    How did it happen that I am about to buy a camera from 1935. In this age of digital everything, why do I even consider a camera that old. The camera that I am looking at is an old danish design. It is a NORKA (Nordisk Kamerafabrik) multi camera. It will let me take multiple pictures on the same sheet of paper or plate (see picture). As the seller puts it the camera is supposed to work but might need some TLC. This makes me wonder if it will set my 20x24" camera project back or if it be a further ...

  3. Blogging again?

    , 01-22-2008 at 04:44 PM
    I was never too good at updating the blog under the previous system - in fact I believe it only ever came to two entries. But that's no reason not to try again, is it?

    I have a lot of negatives ...
  4. Turning to 3D

    Yesterday I had help from a savy 3D CAD teacher. With his help, we have turned some of my ideas into 3D drawings. It is an interesting process. I feel that I have e good spacial feel for how things look and work, but seeing something in 3D on a monitor is very different. We set off to just get something into 3D and not look at if it will work or not. We had to start somewhere and we decided to start with a contact printing frame. The software package he uses allows for making cuts between to pieces ...
  5. Material - traditional or modern

    by , 01-18-2008 at 10:45 AM
    Today I spent the day looking at a factory where they manufacture items in composit materials. They make all kind of things, from bikes to boats. I got some small samples. They are made from materials like carbonfiber, Kevlar friber, glassfiber. Some made with a core from a different material.

    I got a ton of litterature to study. There are so many variations to consider if I want to go this route with my camera.

    On the other hand. I have wood from a 60 year old Elm ...
