It amazes me what a micro sensor can do.

This is iPod 6, shot with a full manual App, an add on diopter which claims 15x. Coffee bean at 19mm posed on 35mm film can.

I don't know sensor physical size, they claim 8 MP. EXIF shows shot as TIF 8.5 MP, 3.3 mm FL, f2.4, 800 ASA and "focus mode 1, device tilt -2"!

I printed it at Costco 12x12" just to see it. $4.40.

Here is the setup. Tiny camera on Arkay Studio Stand.

Handheld almost worked, but I shake.

I use my Samsung Note 5 phone for almost all of the macro work I do in my shop as records for things I'm working on. The camera works great for that, and it's fast and easy. Also, I have used panorama mode quite a bit. If I wasn't into the camera stuff so much, a phone might do everything for me. When the day comes that it will sync with my studio flash, and have no delay, it will be ready for prime time.

The Note 5 also has a raw mode. I don't use it, but when I tried it I was amazed what the potential was.

I'm using 'Camera+' App for iPhone, it gives full manual control and shoots Raw. The Olio Clip lens works well.

This thing beats my P&S Nikon P7000 all to death except for the 200 mm zoom.

And I always have it...

LOL

That pattern is repeated throughout the building, if there were no numbers on the doors, you would never find anyone.

Here they acknowledge that (http://netschcampus.uic.edu/9bsb.html) and they are recent additions. Evidently a masterful example of Field Theory design.

Really odd place.

No, though Toronto is huge, especially after all the amalgamations of the last couple of decades. I thought it was, since the 'length' was cut from 1,000+ km to the current 86.

I looked up Yonge before I made the original post. Even read a bit of history.

I don't care, I was trying to emphasize the plight of the beggar. Usually truck drivers will hand down paper money. He is well known.

2 guys last year walked the length of Western and had a drink in every bar. Western was once the western edge of Chicago and North was you know. I live just at the outer edge of Western & North which is now deep inner city ghetto turning fancy since I landed 14 years ago.

Sorry about hijacking your post, I just knew the Canadian lore about Yonge being the longest and I didn't look it up.

Like many, I hesitate to hand out money to beggars, partly because we're raised with some pretty terrible attitudes about people who are down on their luck ("They'll only spend it on drugs and alcohol!" -- well, if I were homeless and in a wheelchair, I might want to escape reality too...). I compromise by having on hand lots of water bottles on the passenger side, I freely hand those out to anyone who will take them. And I would rather give money to homeless people now than to any of the million 'charities' out there who spend 90% or more of their 'take' on salaries and overhead (no, I'm not bashing all charities either :P).

I'd give it all away, except I did that a few times. As I am on my last journey, I am keeping everything I can, just in case I live forever...



I sure don't want to live forever, what a horrible idea. :)

Randy, I was there this past week for a work conference but I am back in MD now. Are you from Chicago?

I am since 1967.

If ever here again perhaps we can meet, even if just at ORD as I can train there quickly.

That would be really nice Randy! I'll keep it in mind and let you know when I am around the city again - my work brings me there at least once a year.
