#5. "RE: Remote Release--off topic warning"
In response to In response to 4

St Petersburg, RU

Yes, I have a degree in EE but it all started way before that when I was buidling my own designs from about 10 y.o, mostly receveivers and transmitters for my Amateur Radio station. My main career was owning a large recording studio and engineering recordings of rock and R&B albums for almost 30 years. When I moved here to Russia 9 years ago I slowly built up a comprehensive lab in a spare bedroom by bringing one or two pieces of lab instruments in my suitcases on each return trip. I met an engineer recently here who has a complete precision machine shop in his spare bedroom, about 1/2 the size of my dedicated space yet uses the space he has very effectively with lathes, milling machine and lots of cool equipment. We decided to share space, he can use my electronics lab and I can use his machine shop in our home brew projects. He mostly works in inventing laser measurement systems and remote materials analysis so builds tiny sensors and very high voltage assemblies. I mostly work on pro audio systems. My first camera project was building 2 600w/s studio strobes with a portable power pack(not too portable, but it has wheels) that can power 4 heads, 4 years ago when I got my first DSLR, a D90. I modified the D90 to have the remote CLS transmitter and added a mic/line input jack the 2nd week I had it. I have not touched the D7000 and will not disassemble the D800.
I built a lot of light modifiers(GoBos, snoots, grids, softboxes etc, ceiling mounted sockets to screw in simple PVC pipe stands) for the studio set up but hardly ever use any of it since learning the great Nikon CLS and a bunch of SB-900 slaves. They are perfect for most of what I shoot but I might get back into studio.
