View from the cockpit

Just hooked up my left flank monitor, sadly it’s a TN panel, so it’s viewing angle isn’t so hot.

My main two (Samsung 245BW) are both IPS though, but the third monitor was just sitting around…might as well, right?

There’s also a fourth, but it’s actually my bedroom TV mounted on the other side of the room, so while technically it’s a monitor, I don’t really use it for anything except watching my terabytes of movies/tv shows.

Here’s a photo from my actual seat (had to employ a low mag. fish eye)

  • Aperture: ƒ/27
  • Camera: NIKON D90
  • Taken: 29 March, 2012
  • Focal length: 24mm

  • Shutter speed: 8s

if you look at the EXIF data, the shutter speed isn’t lying. I had to pause the movies so I could take a nice high aperture photo with no flash.


End of Days Monitor [Part III] (Final!)

To be honest, I kind of wish I never called this a steampunk monitor, because people have certain expectations of steampunk. It’s a provocative buzz word, and I’m guilty of trying to appear in search results. Really, this is more of an “industrial grunge” or an “End of Days” monitor [Editor note: I originally titled all my posts Steampunk Monitor but have since changed them, and the accompanying URLs]. Anywho, onwards!

  • Aperture: ƒ/6.7
  • Camera: NIKON D90
  • ISO: 200

Here’s the frame all painted. I used wrinkle black to get a rough texture, and it came out quite nicely.
