Electro
Posted By: thomasjmpark, 01-07-2008, 03:17 AM

Hi,

Been meesing around with one of those electric ball things (forgot what you call them). Soon realised I would have to put the iso up to 1600 with varying shutter speeds to get any decent results so the pics are a bit grainy.

Pretty spacey Thomas! I keep thinking it is a Van der Graff machine but I don't think that is quite right.

Cool - focus seems a little soft though - as for DV's Microwave experiment haha not so sure I would do there (but id you do throw an egg and a marshmallow in as well , shut the camera on jpg burst , set the microwave timer and hold down the shutter then post the results!)

I know what you meen. When I tried to capture the light using a high shutter speed the senseor just didnt pick up much at all, even at iso 1600! Sharpening doesnt work either as it just sharpens the noise I still quite like the effect though

Since we have wandered over to the topic of photographing 'exciting things in the microwave' toss a CD in and set it on high for 15 seconds. That can be entertaining!

I used to put crisp bags in the micro (before foil was introduced). If it worked properlt then you would end up with perfect minatures of the bag that could be used as keyrings!

When I left secondary school one of the students put a pierced can of beans in the micro in the common room, on high for about 30mins!! that made a mess and lots of smoke
