My Apple iMac died

So last Thursday, after finishing up a photo assignment, I came home about midnight, very tired. Showered and wanted to check emails for a while, only to find that the computer was not responding. It was warm to the touch. At first I thought that there was a power outage, maybe the power supply was cut and the computer didn't reboot. I pressed the start button, after a while, I was greeted not with the familiar Apple logo, but in its place was a folder icon with a question mark on it. Being the first time encountering this situation, I was quite curious, thinking to myself maybe the boot sector or something got corrupted and it could not find the hard disk, or it could be a physical problem.

First time opening up my iMac.

DIY Macro Lens

I found this on youtube.com and I still can not believe someone would really do it. I definately don't want to try it but maybe you would like to give it a go ?

 

Anyone willing to try it on their 18-55 lens ?

Few things amazing about this hack/ DIY

 

  1. Aperture control was still maintained, by moving the contacts from the back to the front.
  2. He modded the EFS lens mount to EF mount
  3. The close up video shots was gorgeous, probably on another Canon body
  4. The soundtrack was awesome, suit the video. 
  5. Nice video editing
