Connector/Adapter to Nikon thread

by Makla

Hey there,
I'm trying to realise my own ring light for my Nikon D5100 and wanted to create a thread as attachment possibility in front of the lens. I only found .stl-files I couldn't edit or use because of different thread-types. It would be nice, if you can give me a hint where to get a accordingly file.

I got some different ideas. Maybe you can share your opinions on these. First the already stated one. But I'm not sure if the amount of light produced by the ring at the lens is creating flares or making the pictures "ugly".
The second Idea was to glue or push the light ring onto the lens itself. But I'm not sure if I would damage the lens itself.
My actual idea is to have a bridge from the electrical box to the ring.

Thanks for your Help.

Victorian Gutta Percha / Thermoplastic Tintype case

by fire41fighter

I Have an Anet A6 and am new to this. I also do civil war period living history and am looking for a 3d printed repro of a "union case" for tintypes. Originals are made of gutta percha or "thermoplastic". Examples can be found on ebay, etc. Does anyone have anything similar...or any ideas? Thanx!

New Full size Pro 2 Model 4th Axis Stabilizer Launched!

by ScottyMakesStuff

My original Pro 1 Model was popular and for good reason... but I knew I could do better so I reworked every part of the original and added 18 bearings, tweaked the geometry and added a high tech synthetic damping gel. The net result is that the New Pro 2 Model produces 30% smoother footage than the original! I've got 4 videos as well - Features, Show-reel, Assembly and more.

After some months of further development I'm super happy with my latest stabilizer... it produces at least 30% smoother footage than the original!
I've got 4 Videos already added to the Thing file with more to come :)
The dreaded 'gimbal bob' will be a thing of the past with the silky smooth footage you'll get with the new Compact Pro Model 4th Axis Camera Stabilizer in single and dual handle!

4th Axis Gimbal Stabilizer - Pro Model

by ScottyMakesStuff

Hey fellow camera geeks! I've got something here I'm really proud of! There's a great showcase video too :)
My original gimbal stabilizer does a great job but I wanted to make it take even better silky smooth shots as well as being more Pro friendly. Both myself and others wanted more features to adapt better to the variable camera rigs and shots that we have to contend with on shoots.
