    I was enthralled too.

    Some uncomfortable 'truths' about photography:

    Wow , i'll certainly be sticking to the day job ! (which is not photography) , the future for prof photographers looks bleak...the professionals who are in war zones and the national geographic types will hang on to their jobs though i reckon . Then the people who are really creative with photoshop will find their niche , some allready are

    He seemed very cynical and jaded, but eerily quite insightful...

    A cool set of Henri Cartier-Bresson shots. Actually like this stuff better than his more famous pics:

    Give an Artist a box of different sized colour blocks and he will create an art work; give me the same box and I will sort it by colour and then size :)

    It's amazing they can develop and produce a product for so little.

    Because it is not clear what you can expect for your money and when I have resisted going into any kickstart projects. It is also not clear when your money is taken and if you can pull out and expect a refund. This wouldnt last 5 mins under NZ consumer law I suspect.

    Wow that's worth backing at that price, I like the NZ one too that was far more featured, but $500 was a bit much for me.

    Latest rumors are that there will be a return of the APS-H sensor format (1.3x crop) in the form of a 7D mk2. If they make this and in a $3000-$3500 price range I think It would be a pretty hot product

    Sorry I don't have the link around, might be earlier in this post. Its got rotation and tilt, along with motors for using on a slide.

    The syrp looks great but I would have to be seriously into timelaps to buy one, that other thing looks like something that can be chucked into your bag on the off chance.

    Also looking for a star tracking gadget too, I think I found a cheapish one recently but still not cheap enough.

    I don't think that there's such a thing (cheap and useful). Something like this can work quite well. You can piggy-back a light camera or pull the optical tube out and make a bracket to mount your SLR. You get the benefit of the goto system to help you set it up.

    I just got the notification that my RaspberryPi has been shipped. Between that, my Arduino and a simple pulley system I was going to try and fashion a timelapse rig.

    But then I saw this!

    I am thinking of trying to set the record for the worlds highest ever Instagram pic!

    I want to try something a little less ambitious with a gopro and some helium balloons with some fishing line to bring it back to earth.

    Have you done the calculations on the cost of the helium to do this?

    You may get a surprise when you do Helium is not cheap and it takes quite a bit to get even 200gm of lift

    A kite works quite well if you are going to have it tethered.

    I´ve flown a kite on the end of a fishing rod before...obviously you are a bit at the mercy of the wind and I didn´t have the confidence to hang a camera from it. Granted it was only a $20 kite. I like the idea of helium balloons though.

    A bit of internet research comes up with: "A typical helium-filled balloon on a ribbon can lift 4.8 grams". That's for standard party balloons, so at-least 50 will be needed, not including ones that pop while putting it together etc. Getting the go-pro attached to 50 balloons would be a nightmare.
