Link of The day - DIY Tilt Shift Lens

We have an old 50 1.8 FD (manual focus) lens at home.

Might be worth a try.

Interesting article about wages & cost of living.
Seems more and more jobs are being reducedto minimum wage.

"nine per cent of Ontario's workforce is working for minimum wage -- that is more than double what it was nearly a decade before."

Less jobs overall , but more of them are minimum wage.

Link of The Day - Cool Headphones/Ear Buds

Pretty cool headphones (ear buds I guess, what ever).

tweakedaudio.com

Lots of them have mics and flat cords (it's supposed to stop them from tangling),  they also make a pair of wooden ear buds,  that's pretty cool.

I'm trying to talk myself into and out of getting a pair. 

I don't really NEED a new pair of ear buds,  ... but I could use a a new pair with a MIC.

I do like the full size headphones, but these are pretty cool.

Have to think about it.

Link of The Day - Best Budget Rig

Caleb Pike from DSLR Video Shooter  puts together what he feels is the Best Budget Rig


It's not a single item it's pieces from different manufacturers that he thinks works well together.

I haven't checked out all the links for the different pieces but I did follow the link to the shoulder pad w/ mounting point, as I think it might work with the I have.

I'll probably check out the rest of the piece when I have some time.
