E62, Livestreaming

We try something new, Livestreaming to the world. Tell us how it worked for you. Also, Nick talks about how he hates skateboarders at the end because he doesn’t like that we paved the world. Get off my lawn — Graham quoting Nick completely from Graham’s imagination. Nick doesn’t really have a lawn kids could play on. Fawns yes, kids no.

E47 Dave Walker and his Atomic Goodness

NOTE: This episode was lost from the website for some reason. That’s why it’s out of order

This episode was recorded during the early stages of the worldwide Coronavirus scare in the Western Hemisphere and we start of with talking about a crowdsourcing project that Ethan is working on. 

Facebook group: Opensource Covid-19 medical supplies

Multiple crowd-sourced projects: #projectopenair #coventchallenge

Designing in OnShape (https://www.onshape.com/)

We eventually move on to talk to Dave Walker (https://www.instagram.com/davethewalker80/) and he tells us about how he got into cameras, photography and tinkering and about the atomic nature of his day job. He talks about the Bulldog 4X5 camera (https://www.ephotozine.com/article/bulldog-5×4-self-assembly-camera-large-format-review-7560) which is unfortunately no longer available. 

He also talks a bit about a digital camera he built for infrared work in the darkroom using a car back-up camera. 

The big reason we wanted to talk to Dave is his work with LCD shutters and their capabilities. They are very cool. 

We move on to the Covid Camera Challenge: Build a camera at home with parts on-hand as low-tech or as high-tech as you want it to be. Build it and take pictures of it and send them to us. We will put together a PDF zine of the projects. If you can’t use it because you can’t get it developed or can’t get the film or whatever, that’s cool. We are aiming at an end of May deadline on this project.
