Problem with frozen/slow shutter time's

Not that this is the best way to go about this.
but in some cases its simply only a choice to try this or leaf it as it is.
because taking it apart en cleaning it up your self requires tools and nonage/experience you may not have jet.
and letting it been repaired usually makes no sense with cheaper cameras because it is that probably wiser to just buy a other one.

but to make a long story a little bit shorter. I was working on my bike and noticed that this spray called Cyclon Pronto Spray. cleaned up the mechanical parts of my shifter in a instance by dissolving the old oil that was hardened out and simply just dirty.

so later i was thinking maybe this also would work on mechanical cameras like SLR's how are a bit sensitive to grease or oil thats dirty ands slows some parts down so the camera don't work properly. so I did spray it around the shutter speed dual in particular on this Zenit because that seems to be slowed down by something. and after using the shutter a view times it works like new.
and this was also for my old/corroded looking AXA IIa

but the only thing to keep in mind is that is dissolves the oil! and dirt. and it was there for a reason the oil at least haha.
but if extra ware on the mechanics is the price of having a working camera. or one most would consider a broken camera or not worth fixing camera than the choice to me is easy.

and another this is keep in mind its aggressive stuff so be careful with it on plastic or your lenses in case you can't remove them. and shutters made of fabric. it could do some damage to it. to my AXA and Zenit it doesn't seem to much harm but you never know what will happen over time with it because of it.
so don't try to drown your camera with this spray just a little bit on the right places should be enough

infrared digital Photography

(EN) A wile back I was searching for a way to capture infrared with a digital type of camera. but I didn't find it. but a view days ago I did. on a site how explains why it is possible and how to make one of a regular compact camera. so I give it a try with a old camera. and it works! so as you can see above:)

(NL) een tijdje terug zocht ik naar een manier om infrarood fotografie te doen met een digitale camera. maar toen kon ik er niks over vinden. maar een par dagen terug kwam ik er toeval iets over tegen op een site waar ze vertellen waardoor het mogelijk is en hoe je er zelf een kam maken door een compact camera aan te passen. zo ik heb een poging gegeven met een oude camera en zo als je kan zien werkt het.

diana adapter and lensbaby?

(EN) when I bought the diana adapter I saw my suspicions where true and the aperture can't be chanced so. I had a idea to combine the lensbaby aperture disc with this adapter and it was easier to do than I thought.

so if you like toe give it a try go ahead en look how I did maybe it is some help to you.

(NL) waneer ik mijn diana adapter kocht klopten mijn vermoedens dat de diafragma vast is op deze adapter. daarom had ik al een beetje zitten uit zoeken hoe ik mijn lensbaby adapters kon gebruiken om de diafragma te kunnen ver anderen. en het was makkelijker dan ik had verwacht.

zo voor geval je ook een poging wil wagen. kan je hier onder zien hoe ik het gedaan hem wie weet heb je er wat aan.

new analog photos

(EN) lately i'm developing my one film thanks to (the art of photography and feeling negative)
and after some time there they are
in the flowing sites and order
some of them standing on Flickr and on zoom. but the most on picasa
in a view maps. so if you are curious you always can take a look.
but don't expect you always will recognize what looking at. because I'm trying some effects you can make with analog photography

(NL) laste tijd ben ik bezig met ontwikkelen van mijn eigen films met dank aan (the art of photography and feeling negative)
en na wat zijd zijn ze er dan. op de volgende sites en mappen.
een paar staan er op flickr en op zoom
en de meeste staan op picasa in verschilden mappen.
zo als je nieuwsgierig bent weetje waar je kan kijken. maar verwacht niet dat je altijd goed kan zien waar je naar kijkt want sommige zijn nog al abstract. meeden door de double exposure en andere technieken die ik uit probeer.
