EL Quadra Adapter

EL Quadra Adapter

I thought I'd share this picture of my Quadra adapter, which somehow split over the weekend, half way through a shoot for a client.
The Quadra + adapter had my 40cm beauty dish attached, which were mounted to the arm of my (Avenger type) C-Stand arm. What seems to of happened is the tightening screw hasn't lined up properly with the thread on the inner metal tubing. The plastic tube housing, has a brass nut moulded into it for the screw to wind back into, it just hasn't lined up with the inner thread when I tightened it........and as a result, the casing for the brass nut has split open.
I only relized something was wrong when the axis of the beauty dish (which isn't heavy at all) kept creeping downward.

Just somthing to keep an eye out for if you have one of these adapters for your EL Quadra.
Turns out, the mounting assembly on the standard Quadra shares the same parts, so I guess I will just pinch a replacement from one of the other strobes I have.

M42 Lens Adapter for Canon EOS Cameras (Back)

Aluminum adapter ring to attach M42 thread lenses to Canon EOS bodies. I use this one to attach a Pentax SMC Takumar 50mm F1.4 lens and a Panagor 85-205mm F3.8 zoom lens to my Canon 30D DSLR. The adapter is the non-flanged version.

All features on the lenses are manually controlled since the old lenses don't have any electronics in them. Works great and cost less that $5.

View on the way to Chattru, Himachal Pradesh, India - 19.06.09

Shot with Canon EOS 5D
Lens: 100-400mm
Mode: Auto

Almost tumbled down the slope of Kumzum Top and got in the truck. The sky rumbled as the air smelled of rain. We speeded towards Chattru ignoring signs like “Speed Thrills but Kills”. Seated beside the driver, looked at the speedometer not much bothered by this reckless driving. The water splashed on the front glass as the wheels hit the puddles, the wipers working vigorously. The sky was getting spectacular by moments but looking at the dark clouds chasing us like a herd of mammoth, I thought better than asking for a shooting break.

The truck screeched in a sudden halt sounding like an animal in agony. There was a small boulder on the way; I seized the opportunity. Undid the seatbelt and snapped away at the peaks bathed in the last golden light.

Setting up the tents, they asked me to get comfortable in the ‘restaurant’ (which is a wild exaggeration of a shack).

It was dark inside with a tiny fluorescent light (power being generated from a small LPG cylinder) illuminating only the cash counter. Few guys sat chatting, the owner’s wife trying to rustle up a fire in a stove typically seen in these areas, a group of bikers Leh bound (taking a night halt) playing carom and a few more sipping their drink. Not a prop, which under different circumstances I would be seen in. Now it didn’t matter, was glad to be back among my own tribe! With the setting sun, the mercury dropped. My wet feet felt awfully numb yet cold. Instinctively I gravitated towards the fire. Minutes later peeled away the socks for fresher ones and put on the woolens. A simple task requiring the last vestige of energy, a strange urge making me want to fall asleep on my feet like a horse! What an incredibly long day it had been!

Being quite an introvert, I surprised myself by not getting uncomfortable or curt when an elderly gentleman struck up a conversation!

He sipped a pale yellow drink (being a teetotaler, not exactly familiar with the brews and their identification), while I Bournvita. His team was camping to carry out a raid mission in the area nearby where a dam was being constructed. The voice on his radio/wireless set, reported the political turbulence in my home state. A world so far that the incidents seemed occurring in outer space!

My tent was set; I glided inside the sleeping bag. Steady flicker of the candle casting a shadow of all my belongings on the red nylon walls.

It was raining outside; nothing I did would keep me warm. The cold from the ground seeped through the tent floor, double rubber mats, into the sleeping bag and slithered through my layered clothing like a viper. I wondered if hypothermia felt remotely like this?

Barely nibbled at the food but was extremely glad at the extra sleeping bag, hot water bottles and the cook’s clean folded jacket to be used as a pillow (chivalry was not dead yet).

Asimov lay next to me, but turning the pages was too much effort, I blew out the candle and promised myself never again. A luxurious spa holiday was more my kind of thing, this was outrages and dumb! Battling a nauseating fear of imaginary arachnoids crawling over me, fell into a deep slumber…

Chhatru, a small halt station at an altitude of 3 490 m / 11450ft. Here one can find 3-4 shanty shop cum restaurant. Some even provide very basic night stays.

Day 53 Party!

Day 53 Party!

Today was a day filled with photo ops. Unfortunately, I didn't capture too many of them. Marissa invited us to Little Gym this afternoon for their member appreciation party. Maggie was completely overwhelmed when we first walked in, but quickly got over it and ran around the gym like the crazed toddler she is. She loved the balance beam, climbing on the mats, and just trying to keep up with Belize. (Reef was at home still napping.)

From there we headed over to the Ellis homestead for a swim and BBQ party with several of their friends with young children. There must have been over ten kids there under the age of five. It was crazy fun! Maggie headed upstairs to play with Belize and her friends in her room. She really liked the loft/tent bed, but wouldn't go down the slide.

Then everyone headed out to the pool. I couldn't convince Maggie to stick to the blow-up shark pool, so I had to park Carter in his seat by the fence and change into my suit. She had a good time counting (starting at five) and jumping off the step to me. Carter seemed to be having a good time just watching the fun, but after awhile decided he wanted to join us. One of the other moms kept an eye on Maggie so I could change him into his suit.

After swimming, I fed Carter on the patio because my suit was still wet. When I went inside, Maggie and most of the other kids were all sitting at the table eating hot dogs, mac and wheels, and fruit. Again, one of the other moms was helping Maggie with her food. I guess she ate all of her food and then started on her neighbor's plate!

Maggie wandered back outside and wanted to join the boys in the sandbox. Unfortunately she sat on an ant line and literally ended up with ants in her pants! We tried to brush them off, but realized they were all in her diaper cover, so we had to strip her down to get them all off. I panicked a little, but she started playing (naked) before I could get all the ants out of her clothes and put them back on.

By the time we got home, Maggie was asleep, but woke up crying when the water park down the road started their fireworks show. So we ended the day with a fireworks show and some of Daddy's Ben and Jerry's. What a great day!

Shift: How to Reinvent Your Business, Your Career, and Your Personal Brand

Little changes can make a big difference.

When some of the world’s biggest corporations need to revive their brands, innovate products, and rethink their images, they call Peter Arnell.

Now in his fourth decade of branding and marketing for such companies as Samsung, Reebok, DKNY, GNC, and Pepsi, Arnell explains how you can use some of the same strategies that famous brands do, in order to improve your own image, life, and career. Arnell knows this firsthand because he applied many of these same strategies to transform his own life by losing 256 pounds.

How did he do it?

Arnell created an idea he calls Shift.

With Shift, you’ll discover the steps you need to take in order to become the best you. Creating and revitalizing brands happens every day in business. Shift shows how you can make it happen for yourself and your personal brand.

Innovative insights such as “go helium” are used by Arnell to explain how he reached his ultimate goal of 150 pounds—you can apply his techniques to reach for your own goals. You will see—through Arnell’s description of how he “went tiger”—how to exercise your own discipline and commitment, without apology, even if that means bucking the norm. And by learning to reach out to your brand audience, you will come to understand the importance of your network of friends, acquaintances, colleagues, and family—your fan club— in keeping you motivated and providing the feedback you need for success.

Weaving together personal stories of his own transformation with stories about how he created transformative change for brands such as Reebok and Pepsi, Arnell shares his unique vision on how each of us can rebrand and transform ourselves, both personally and professionally, to achieve the success we desire.

PETER ARNELL, founder of Arnell, is one of the foremost branding and design experts in the world. Among the companies he and his team have worked with are DKNY, Samsung, Chanel, Reebok, Mars, Pepsi, Home Depot, GNC, De Tomaso, Fendi, Mikimoto, Special Olympics and Con Edison. He and his family live in Westchester County, New York.

Matt Tyrnauer Reviews Shift
Matt Tyrnauer is a special correspondent at Vanity Fair and a filmmaker. His documentary feature film, Valentino: The Last Emperor, was short-listed for an Academy Award for best documentary feature.

Advertising guru, branding god, industrial design maven, and man about New York Peter Arnell has written an astonishing, emotional, revealing, and very honest memoir in the form of a self-help book. Shift reveals how Arnell rose up from a bright and industrious kid in the last years of the old, innocent Brooklyn to make his mark in the rough world of Manhattan advertising, marketing, and publishing. When we meet Arnell in this vibrant and disarming book, the author has undergone a life transformation: the shedding of more than 250 pounds. Once a famous, kinetic Big Guy who wore un-tucked tent-like white shirts in his high-stakes account pitches in the world's fancier boardrooms, Arnell tells us how he remade himself after one visit to a diet doctor following some simple math about life expectancy for 407-pound short guys. Shift is, in part, the story of Arnell, master brander, rebranding himself, and, along the way, learning and relearning lessons about his present and past. The author is an intuitive edge player, who always dives in head-first to whatever he is doing, and what he is doing is beguiling: Inventing electric cars; re-inventing the fire extinguisher; helping Frank Gehry sell himself to a reluctant world; aiding Samsung in a bid to overtake the American market. It is fascinating to learn about Arnell's motives for his own rebranding (the weight loss, a totally new bespoke Italian wardrobe, and a reframed view of himself and his ability to contribute to the culture), and to go with him back over his own life and career and learn how his wildly eclectic mind synthesized tropes to create some of the most successful and artful corporate identity programs in history. Pepsi, Donna Karan, Home Depot, and McDonald's all benefited from Arnell's vision. Arnell brings us on a very personal voyage, introducing the reader to the countries he loves (Italy above all others), and the big players in the city that made him: New York, New York. The heroes of this book are the good friends (most of them highly accomplished people) and geniuses (some historical figures) from whom Arnell drew strength: from Michelangelo to Martha Stewart to the obscure, brilliant shrink, Milton Wexler, who taught to Arnell to "go helium," and rise above the petty problems of everyday life. Arnell shows us in fast-paced and exciting prose how we too can float on a helium jet stream to happiness, success, and fulfillment of our biggest dreams.
