A quick pic of SAM v1. He'll soon be cast as a silicone practice puppet. Still a little rough around the edges, but nothing a little spit shine can't fix

Nice puppet! Though I must admit, I'm more intrigued by the big 'puppet' giving it the evil eye. Much more brooding and dark, which in my book makes it a lot more interesting. But I'm still looking forward to seeing the cute little guy in action! 

I'm with Strider - who is that intimidating chap?

Oh, that guy.....he and I have long term relationship. I plan to turn him into a silicone mask, but he keeps resisting that idea.

Lol well, it's good when a sculpt takes on a personality of its own, that means you're doing it right! 

Is he sculpted over a full head cast of someone, like maybe you?

Looking forward to progress on the little guy.  Is he going to have just 2 fingers and a thumb?

Solenoid actuator as a shutter release? Mythbusters style!

Started by Strider in CAMERA & STAGE. Last reply by Thomas Nicol on Tuesday. 18 Replies

I've got a camera that doesn't allow any kind of remote shutter release, mechanical or electronic, and I'd like to rig one up for it. My idea is to use some kind of linear actuator Mythbusters style. I've seen them use these things to push all kinds…Continue

Canon Rebel T5 Adapter & Lens?

I recently purchased a Canon Rebel T5 (not T5i) and I need to buy a Nikon lens and lens adapter for it. I thought that would be easy but I've been frustrated for days trying to figure out what to buy. All I want is a basic standard lens. (I was…Continue
