Droid X Photos!

Today, I took the Droid X review unit I received from Motorola/Verizon for a test drive and took some photos with it.

DSLR Hack – How to Make a DSLR Chest Support!

Although this might not look too fashionable to carry around, you can make a DSLR chest support with several PVC piping pieces for more stable photo/video taking with just one hand.  Of course, this will also stabilize your two-handed shots, certainly a good DIY for those with unsteady hands.

For those of you looking for better flash bracket solutions, you might want to try Brent’s DIY flash bracket, which according to him, helps your wireless sensor remains unobstructed:

The point of this bracket vs. directly mounting the flash the umbrella adapter? It’s simple – the optical wireless sensor remains unobstructed.

Flickr Hack – DIY Blind Camera Shows you the Latest Images Off Flickr!

Here’s a cool DIY blind camera that will search for the latest images people have uploaded on Flickr and show you on the camera screen when you click the red button.

However, unlike a conventional analog or digital camera, this one doesn’t have any optical parts. It allows you to capture your moment but in doing so, it effectively seperates it from the subject. Instead, as you will memorize the moment, the camera memorizes only the time and starts to continuously search on the net for other photos t
