some of my diy projects



two axis shift adapter for hasselblad lenses to canon eos mount
useful for stitching undistorted high res images with fixed nodal point and focal plane
shifts 25mm vertically and 30mm horizontally in both directions
shown here with carl zeiss 40mm distagon f/4 C and homemade lens hood
(the geared tripod head is not part of the design)



electronic canon eos retro adapter
for retro mounting canon ef lenses with full control over aperture and af (although i don't use af for macro)



frankenstein macro flash mod
the flash is an old metz 30bct4
the flash head was removed from the main unit to get closer to the target and outfitted with a cardboard softbox
later i installed a din socket where the head cable leaves the main unit to use it with either the head you see here or a lens mounted ringflash head
the photo resistor for the auto function was replaced with a volume pot from a scrapped walkman for manual output control
battery adapter for 6V sla battery



macro flash tube prototype
my earliest method of macro lighting
cardboard mirrored inside with thermal blanket, adjustable in two axis
the later versions had integrated wider softboxes at the front and output control by a piece of cardboard shoved into the light channel from the side

FPA International Is On Track To Being A Great Fund FPA International (MUTF:FPIVX) is a replica watches that was formed only a little over three years ago. FPA's Crescent (MUTF:FPACX) and Capital Fund (MUTF:FPPTX) have long track records of outperformance. I believe that the fund will join some of the great funds in its category in a replica watches. The international fund was formed in December 2011, and has already outperformed the MSCI World ex. US benchmark. Here is a link to its Quarterly Fact Sheet. The fund is managed by Pierre O. Py. The fees are a little high at 1.26%. It's a very concentrated fund with 26 holdings. What's unusual is that it holds 26.3% cash. It looks as if Py is bearish on the financial markets, as are rolex replica (who managed the Crescent Fund) and Bob Rodriguez (who for many years managed the Capital Fund). The fund has averaged 10.06% since its founding, against 8.35% for the index. Let's take a look at a few of the fund's holdings.
