  • Dan, what camera used?


    Praise to you for all your excellant digital photos of your text book welds. Suspect some is the camera and some your attention to detail . The pix are generally better than most anything I have seen in the professionally produced books I have looked at. What camera are you using?

    If the images of my welds were that detailed ... well lets not think about what horrors might insue.

    This camera has turned out to be money well spent. My wife though I was little crazy at first for wanting the camera just so that I could put pictures on this site. Thank goodness though she wanted the camera too. If I didn t have the camera look at all the fun that would have been missed by not being able to do the bending brake project on this site. I can guarantee you that the quality of my pictures is mainly from the quality of the camera. I have to confess though, that I generally take up to probably 10 pictures on some of the welds and end up with about 5 good pictures. Then I select the best picture out of these five.

    Oh yeah, the camera is a Canon Power Shot A 40.
    MigMaster 250- Smooth arc with a good touch of softness to it. Good weld puddle wetout. Light spatter producer.
    Ironman 230 - Soft arc with a touch of agressiveness to it. Very good weld puddle wet out. Light spatter producer.

      Thank You.

      I was pretty close to buying the Canon A10 ... even have an ebay bid on one but doubt I will win. I am very pleased with my Canon copier and recently purchased film camera, not as much with their printers. Guy at work has a Minolta "dimage-x" that looks like a great compact package ... hoping the name will sound too much like damage or drainage and those will get less expensive.

      On another thread, Rocky D thought you might have trouble deliberately making bad welds. If so, rest assured I can supply a variety of examples. I ran eight beads on the bender project today (bed to sides and bend leaf to handles). All probably stong enough, all look different, one even looks pretty good (well the middle part).
