10.05.18 I made a website named Photoworld to inspire other people to take photos of the world.

 

 

This is a home made reflector. It was because I was going to take portrait of everyone in my class.  I needed a light reflector but none of my near by stores had reflectors that was over 30cm. I decided to make my own. I started with gluing to plates of cardboard together. After drying, I glued the hole front side and started wrapping it with aluminum foil. First one layer, after drying, I glued another layer of aluminum foil on the plate. I used hobby glue for the hole project.

When I tried to use it to se the result, I got shock. It was actually working surprisingly well. It almost worked better then the reflectors you buy from the store. To make it more solid I used blank tape around the hole edge, and on the hole back. This helps the cardboard to be more solid and it helps the foil to be on the cardboard.

I know that this is not gonna be you’re full time reflektor but it is fun to make it and it can be good if you not want to spend much money on a reflector. it can also be good for trying a cheap reflector to see if you want to by a reflector from your camera store

Here you can see that i have tape on the hole back to protect it from scratches and to hold the foil on to the cardboard                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
I am using the Olympus OM-D E-M5 not the mark 2 but the mark 1. This is shortly told the best camera for me because of the 5-axis image satabilaser and the weather seeling that makes this kamere neraly impossible to btake. It also made by metal so it wount craf if you drop it I hav dropped my kamera to many times but it stil survives. This is a mirrorles camera, so it is smal in size.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       The image sensor of Four Thirds and MFT measures 18 mm × 13.5 mm (22.5 mm diagonal), with an imaging area of 17.3 mm × 13.0 mm (21.6 mm diagonal), comparable to the frame size of 110 film. Its area, ca. 220 mm², is approximately 30% less than the quasi-APS-C sensors used in other manufacturers’ DSLRs it is around 9 times larger than the 1/2.3″ sensors typically used in compact digital cameras.
The Four Thirds system uses a 4:3 image aspect ratio, like compact digital cameras. In comparison, DSLRs usually adhere to the 3:2 aspect ratio of the traditional 35 mm format. Thus, «Four Thirds» refers to both the size and the aspect ratio of the sensor. However, the chip diagonal is shorter than 4/3 of an inch; the 4/3 inch designation for this size of sensor dates back to the 1950s and vidicon tubes, when the external diameter of the camera tube was measured, not the active area.
The MFT design standard also specifies multiple aspect ratios: 4:3, 3:2, 16:9 (the native HD video format specification), and 1:1 (a square format). With the exception of two MFT cameras, all MFT cameras record in a native 4:3 format image aspect ratio, and through cropping of the 4:3 image, can record in 16:9, 3:2 and 1:1 formats.
In addition, all current Micro Four Thirds cameras have sensor dust removal technologies

I really love this camera. I travel a lot, so this camera is perfect for me because of the mal size what it doesn’t have is a flash, but that is becus this camera is a professional consumer camera so you shouldn’t be using the in body flash if it was there. But if you are traveling as me you don’t want to take up space with a flash, so it was fine if it was there… however on the lower budget cameras in the same serie you get a flash and I think that is a god future but they are not whether seeled thou.
The camera has micro four sensor so when you put on a lens you will get the double mm as the lens tels you ih it is a 50mm prime it will be a 100mm prime in full frame and if it is a 24-70 it will be a 48-140 in full frame                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   I need to tel you that the reflektor I made is still alive but 3 weeks after I made that one I went out and purchase a 5 in 1 110cm reflektor and I have used it sins then. The reason I did purchase the 5 in 1 reflektor is because it is much more durable and you also get the 5 different colors that is nice to have…
