Can't believe you are actually even thinking about that.
I'll give it a hard think over the weekend when I have a few days off. Any ideas on making a time lapse video?
You can use your DSLR to take the photographs or even a phone. Issue is how long do you think it will take you to assemble it.
I would recommend using the DSLR, as definitely when building the model, it will shift, the larger image size from the DSLR will give you room to align and crop things later in post-production.
I'm assuming between 6 to 10 hours. I would like to pause in the middle so that I can assemble it at my pace.
I'd put the DSLR on a tripod and use that. Take pictures at regular intervals.
I think 30 seconds should be good enough? Set a low MP rating so that the card doesn't run out of space?
How easy is it to get a replacement screen for the Redmi 2? I managed to break my device What a loss.
A friend was on his way from Mumbai, picked up another Redmi 2. For 5,999/- this device rocks!
A friend broke his Mi3 screen. Went to Xiaomi's service center. He got the device the next day.
What if this friend is in the Middle East and not in India I do have the bill somewhere. Do I need the bill?
Any idea how much did they charge him? I searched online and found replacement LCD + Touch panel for about 50$
Got a Spigen iPhone 5S Tough Armor case to ensure I dont crack my beloved-but-not-always-useful-though-i-love-the-4-inch-screen-so I-use-it iPhone 5S
They charged 6.5K and no they didn't ask for the invoice.
IIRC it is 3k for the screen for the RedMi 2.
Leave it at the max setting, I would also recommend you connect your camera to your laptop (Tethered shooting), using Downloads | DslrDashboard, it will allow you to setup intervelometer, access files and download them to your laptop, controlt he camera from the laptop, so there is minimal shake or movement of the camera.
As I said earlier, shoot as high res as possible to give you plenty of space to crop and align things later, and thus don't take the shots too tight as well.
Duly noted kind sire.
I looked up a few videos of the dismantling of the Redmi 2. The initial screws are easy to get, but the ribbons are quite a pain (3 in all), there is a small connector as well. Slightly tedious.
Wondering if I should take it up as a weekend project and see what happens.
After losing two beloved MagLites over the last 2 years, found this one -
2xAA Cell, LED bulb, 4 mode (100%, 25%, Flashing and SOS)
Gunmetal finish, lifetime warranty, with a belt holster.
The focus is not as much as my 3XAA Cell LED MagLite, but it'll do for daily work.
Beam range of 150 meters, tested to 100 with ease.
Got a Millennium Falcon and a Genuine Mercedes cover for the iPhone -
So you can apparently put it on your finger and fly it around
The cover/case is really really nice. Super soft rubber, well finished. Surprising build quality for merchandise. A friend had to pick up his Merc from service, The store was at the service center.
Best part it, it's wrap around, so covers all sides plus the face of the screen (around the edges) so that the screen does not touch any surface, even when placed face down.
Moto X Play
I am surprised that there isn't much of a size difference between the G and the X Play. I was expecting a much bigger difference. Now only if they would launch a 4.5 inch version or the First Moto X sized version of this great phone!
Got an Otter Box Symmetry series cover for the Missus' iPhone 6 -
After her last iPhone 6 fell face down and shattered the screen, she wanted something that protects the device on all corners, as well as the face of the phone.
This is bulky for sure. It nearly doubles the thickness of the device, and adds quite a bit to the width.
The rear is textured, but not as grippy as I would've liked it to be. This tends to slip from your hands, if you're holding it lightly.
The previous barely there cover -
Good grip, nice textured feel.
No protection around the top, bottom and on the face of the device.
The Otter Box bulks it up to a new level with protective covers for all buttons.
For about 2,700 INR, you cannot go wrong with the protection offered by the Otterbox cover. But then it is only if you do not wish to relish and enjoy the slim and sleek dimensions of the iPhone 6, which are a key aspect of the whole experience.
A tad overkill, but it is good for a phone that is out of warranty, and another replacement screen will be super expensive.
A 3W worklight, LED Bulb and a precision screw driver kit .
Most of you know I got an iPhone 6S from my telecom operator It is free with a plan for 2 years. The device is unlocked, and can be used on any carrier. The plan is cheaper than my previous 5S and 6 bill plans, so it's a saving grace.
Anyhow, after trying several covers for the device, I finally found the most comfortable one -
The Apple silicone case. And it is worth every dollar spent -
Not only is the cover grippy, it has a soft velvet lining inside, that should not abrade against the metal surface finish of the 6S.
Though it says Silicone on the cover, don't be mis-led. This cover is as stiff as any plastic cover out there. I had purchased the Leather cover for the iPhone before.
However I found the surface finish to be quite slippery. I quickly returned to the store and got it exchanged. Thankfully the person at the counter did it as well without much fuss.
I think perhaps the only area exposed of the device edge is at the bottom, which I can live with.
Damages - 6 times a normal cover
And got a privacy screen guard as well. Will try this once the existing cover starts peeling off.
