PELI Hard Case - Day 17

When you are feeling blue then buy something :-) I just bought this fantastic hard case model 1450 from PELI so I can carry my photo equipment in a protective manner and even ship it with air as the case can be locked.

The PELI 1450 hard case is medium size and it is sold in two versions - one with foam and one with padded dividers (as the one in the photo). So how much equipment did I manage to put into this hard case:

1 x AF-S 18-70mm f/3.4-4.5G ED DX
1 x AF-S 12-24mm f/4G ED DX
1 x AF-S 60mm f/2.8G ED
1 x AF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED DX
1 x AF 50mm f/1.4D
2 x PocketWizard FlexTT5
1 x PocketWizard MiniTT1
1 x SB-600
1 x SB-900 with Diffuser and Gels
1 x Nikon GP-1 GPS 
1 x Nikon MS-D10 (battery unit for MB-D10)
3 x Lens Hoods
1 x SC29 TTL Sync cable
1 x MH-18a Quick Charger with power cable
1 x Sekonic Flasmate L-308S
1 x Eclipse Optic Cleaning System 
1 x Dust Blower
3 x Compact Flash Cards

Pretty impressive!
The market price for such a hard case is app. $300. I need another one for my cameras :-)

I know this was not a very artistic photograph, but I thought is was a nice new piece of hardware.

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
