Canon EOS 5

This morning I got a text message saying: "Guten Morgen. Ja, ist noch da. LG ... "

After a few seconds I realized that I found an offer on willhaben.at for the analog camera Canon EOS 5 yesterday around midnight. For some time I wanted to try analog photography. I don't remember why I was actually searching for this sort of camera yesterday but I gave it a try and today I bought this old piece for 68€ later in the evening in Vienna. And exploring the (for me very new) world of analog photography made my day today.

When our famous photographer Tibor Huszár died last week I felt quite sad that day. I saw only a pair of his photos, I do not know his work very well but still I felt somehow mournful. Hard to explain. I watched a documentary about him and the black&white analog photography came to my mind again.

Hopefully I will find some time to buy film and try this camera. And then I have to find a photo-lab to develop the film somewhere in Vienna. Sounds like a plan for several days if not weeks.

And here it is with my favorite Canon EF 50 mm F1.8 II lens on my desk:

First Hawaii, then Oregon

Why? Hawaii - the international conference on MR (ISMRM) happened to be in Honolulu in 2017. Oregon - to counterbalance volcanic islands with sunny beaches and volcanic mountain with snow.

Part One: No Glamping in Hawaiian Islands

Island One: Kauai



After comfy 24-hour economy flights with Eva and Fabian, and just as I started to watch Moana, we landed in Lihue (Kauai). I assembled with Pedro, we took a rental car and quickly found our room in cosy Kauai Palms Hotel. For lunch next day we met Andrea in Kapaa and together we headed to see Wailua Falls, not far from Lihue. We left Andrea in Kapaa later that day and for our next night we were going to camp at Koke'e State Park Campground (thanks Evka for help with fixing my tent!). The night was very cold, roosters were loud and views from Kalalau Lookout were astonishing! It was time to warm up and see some beach so we decided to get a nice cup of coffee and visit a beach with restricted access for rental cars - Barking Sands Beach in 

Yamaha S08 - sticky keys repair

My keyboard Yamaha S08 suffered from several "sticky keys" disease already a year, perhaps more. That saying, I am pretty bad piano player. However, I like to have my devices fully functional for any cases.
I have found a very helpful guide, but with no photos. I made some for better visualization of the repair.
First, I unfastened all screws from both sides:

Second, I unfastened all screws from a wooden base plate which were holding the part with electronics.


Then I unfastened the golden screws holding the whole keyboard to the wood. The keyboard was now accessible from both sides.

The last step is described in the following video. It was just removing the sticky keys and reinserting them without a metal spring coming inside. The end of the metal spring has been left outside of the key:


So far it works well!

Inspiring music in Casey Neistat's vlogs

After watching a few vlogs by Casey Neistat on Youtube, I couldn't help notice the well-chosen music in the background. Particularly music by one artist named Julian Avila. Here is his music: https://soundcloud.com/julian_avila
Inspired, I took several months old videos I shot on GoPro Hero 2 when I was biking to Kahlenberg in the rain. After a few hours and two whiskeys, this came from my computer:
