That be rain,

Ifi drizzled earlier, and the bags collected about 2mm. So my hypothesis is that they are waterproof.

Its grown a bit since last week..

Well at least it’s now actually a ‘bag’, and frankly I’m pretty happy with it as a proof of concept.

Ifi have some body pains today, and everything got rained on, which has put the kibosh on further construction.

Meanwhile, I finally figured out what was stopping me from getting an image from the DJI (RSC2) Raven Eye transmitter with my little A6400. Bluetooth interferes with it, but turning it off on your camera isn’t enough if you are a geotag fan like me. 10 years ago they stopped putting GPS units in the cameras themselves which propped an industry in GPS dongles. FF that decade and phones have taken their place. When I shoot a still image the camera reaches out to the phone for the geolocation at the moment the image is being written to the memory card, which is done over Bluetooth. So you can’t have both, and I don’t think it’s a DJI issue, I think it’s Sony.

Thats an awful image of a cool thing.

Cornering

Slow going over the last few days. My energy level hoses, may have a kink somewhere, or maybe the world accidentally parked her car on it or something. Anyway, I caved in, and cut a jig out of plywood and got gluing earlier, on the parts which will turn it from a concept into a vessel.

First of the enclosing bonds.

Should I mention that I’m actually a touch, proud, of this here invention? All my prep was bang on, my initial design was also bang on, and whatever modifications I made along the way have really just been indulgent.

If I were to make something like this for sale, it would be simpler, maybe one or two additional parts, like a liner material, I think I’d have to charge more than I’d like to pay for one, given the reasonable options on the ‘zon (that mega online retailer’s last syllable, just because I don’t want the algo’s to see it in my post and them find a way to saturate me with nonsense). Why then am I making my own, if the zon ones are so ‘resonable’? Challenge, see how well I can follow my own instructions, nothing else on the market as tough and fits exactly what these do.

Before I close the bag up, I need to put in the corners, and consider my center strategy.
I literally just invented these, measured, cut & sanded.
