Hello Greg, are using the GO Pro remote, or the phone to control the camera? Or did you have someone push the button? I don't see how you can have both hands in the photo, while taking the still shot. Using the video mode, yes. I returned my head strap. But think I will get another one. It's a great aid for our model SBS
photography'...

I didn't see a light kit though'. Where did you see that?...

Thanks for the interest & for the posts! Jerry, George, Jeff & Ted.

Ted, that was just a joke about the Go Pro Modeling cam, I don't own a Go Pro.
And I don't think they make a modeling version
I used my Nikon D7100 using the timer, and my macro lens to take those shots.

I'm starting to regret my decision to paint up all these gulls.
They are landing everywhere, and sh*tting all over the place now.

Welcome to Reality, Mister Shinnie! The gulls are an occupational hazard around the waterfront. Even the fresh water waterfronts!

Don't ask how I know this....

Nice additions to the ...ummmmm... modeling.

Yes Pete, you are right. I should have realized what I was getting myself into with these gulls.
This first batch of them disappeared quickly, I think I'm going to need another flock of them.

No, it is not actually a modeling version. But the new Go Pro Hero 4, sessions camera is 1 x 1" square and is great for model RR video and stills.
wide lens, low light and 1080. Takes excellent pixs. . Operate from long distance with the cell phone or the remote. Its a very cool little camera, and very inexpensive.

Ted, that Go Pro 4 sessions camera sounds really cool, and perfect for model RR videos.
I'm afraid that I exhausted my camera budget with the purchase of my Nikon D7100.
My wife would not be happy with me if I went out and bought another camera.

Greg, just be thankful they're not pelicans. I can tell you from my boating experience they can really do a number. Yeah a number twoooooo.

Great job, Greg. You are getting much closer to realism. Don't forget to put a piece of dead fish
under the diorama, it will automatically bring the aroma of the wharf with no further effort on your part.

Thanks Dallas, Frank & Bob, for your posts.

Bob, I don't think the dead fish would go over to well with my wife.
She's already complaining about the sea gull sounds she hears coming from the basement.

Too bad

Can't you convince her that it would be for the sake of "art"?

Greg, I wasn't suggesting you buy one, just pointing out the features of it for information purposes only...

Hi everyone, just a quick little update here.
I finally have working lights on one of the traveling cranes.
The one operated by the "Dutchman" if you recall I named my 3 cranes after Rick, Bruce (Dutchman) and Bbags.
I have little name plates under the side window of each cab with their names.
Due to the fact that they do most of the heavy lifting around here.
The cranes will each have 4 lights, a red light at the top of the boom. A goose neck above the door into the crane.
A operating light under the crane, and a spot light pointed forward to light the working area in front of the crane.
They work using two 9 volt batteries, that are inside the crane.
here are a couple of photos showing the cranes new lights.
