Gallery available again!


Somehow, I managed to hose the database.  I don’t know quite how, but I hosed it real good like.  Since I had so little in the gallery, I just blanked it and created a fresh db in MySQL5 and reimported my pictures.  What little commentary I may have added I’ll hunt down and put back in the fullness of time.

I’m also going to start uploading more stuff.  And with the new camera, I’ll have more stuff already digital.

The gallery is here.

The Elan can see!

Got the Elan back. They “recalibrated” the focus sensor. I’m hoping this was a one-off failure and not something that’s going to recur.

Preliminary tests indicate that they nailed it though. It’s focusing accurately on all points now. I’ll expose a few rolls and see what happens.

Clickin’ it old school

Well, the auto-focus on the EOS isn’t doing so well. So it’s going back to Canon for a warranty repair. I suspect it never worked right from the start, but it took me a while to figure out that the blurry pictures wasn’t my fault.

So, while it’s off to repair, I’m back to Old Faithful – the AE-1.

So long as I can keep my eyes from tripping out, I should still be able to squeeze good pictures out of the old girl. But I’ll miss my image stabilizer lens.
