A GIVEAWAY... to warm up the summer ;)

Hi there BLF!

Welcome to my 3rd Giveaway!
You can check my previous ones here and here .

For all the interested to enter this GAW, below you’ll find its’ rules and conditions !

As ever, I hope you folks find it funny and enter in the best way you can Wink Beer

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

RULES AND CONDITIONS!

1 – This GAW starts today: 24th August 2021 !

2 – This GAW ends on the 24th September 2021 (23h59m GMT) Big Smile

3 – To enter this GAW, you have to be a BLF member before this GAW’s opening (new members subscribed on BLF after this GAW opening time will not be considered)!

4 – This GAW is open to members that give/have given an active contribute to BLF and our activity here. Hence, entries from members that predominantly enter only in Giveaways, will not be considered.

5 – The main condition for this GAW, is that you’ll have to use your own flashlights in a creative way to say “BLF”! You can dispose them, make lightpainting, assemble then in some funny shape…whatever, and post a photo or video of that to be considered as an entry* Silly

6 – In case you don’t have a device to take photos/make videos, you can enter by posting something related to flashlights and BLF, either a personal experience, a thought, something that is flashaholic enough to be an entry Wink

7 – Double posts will be disregarded, and only 1 post per member will be considered.

8 – To keep the thread easy to follow and to update, please avoid making multiple posts / comments (this is a forum and we are free to comment, so this is just a kind request to easen my task) Blushing

9 – After the GAW’s closing I will draw the winner on the 3rd attempt at https://www.random.org/. The winner’s name will be posted here (on the top of “post #2”: ) and I will contact the winner via PM to proceed to the correct shipment.

10 – If the winner doesn’t answer in a 4 days period (more or less), I will draw a new winner through the same method as stated on point 9 !!!

11 – I will update post #2 with the list of people that are considered eligible for the GAW. Numbers will be from 36 to “N” Silly

12 – The PRIZE of this Giveaway will be 1 x Lumintop FW1AA flashlight in aluminium + 1× 14500 battery, that was shown here Wink Assuming that the flashlight will be sold in https://www.nealsgadgets.com/, it will be shipped from there.

13 – The winner will be able to choose the colour of the host and the emitter, in case there is that option .

14 – I also assume that there will be the possibility to do worldwide shipping. If not, the conditions will be changed and the restrictions posted to inform the entering members !

15 – Any change to this GAW will be posted in the top of post #1 .

16 – Good luck to everyone and thanks for your contribute to BLF Big Smile

17 – Remember: ALWAYS COMPLY WITH BLF RULES !!!!

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

See you around Wink

So nice, that after a long period of relative silence, things like GAW’s are returning.
This time I’m not in: better odds for the rest. No pun intended.
But this GAW demands a certain level of creativity. That’s so not me.

Thank you for running a GAW. You beat me to it.
Seriously, next GAW will be done by me.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

This is not so much lightpainting but light blasting, using the vir-o-blast adapted as blf-o-blast for the occasion, aimed at my ever so tolerant neighbour’s roof at 40 meters away Beer

Thanks for the generous give away MascaratumB!

Here is my first attempt at light painting, I’m sorry if it’s crap.

I used a D4V2 xpl-hi and a Panasonic ZS100 camera

working on my entry, it sorta involves a flashlight, kinda Smile lots of ws2812 leds and a teensy 3.6 and a sd card and a usb power pack ( powered by lithium bats)

first update, 2 images, once It gets dark and I have time, I’ll post the final image. (my dad fell last night, called a ambulance to take him to hospital. just heard back, he broke his hip, so yeah lots of not fun stuff happening)

first image is the light painting stick, its 351 ws2812 leds on a 9 foot long bit of molding. on the backside is a teensy 3.6 with a micro sd card for image storage.

lightpainting rig

this next image is the teensy with buttons to controll the displaying of images.

teensy 3.6 and sd card

I’ll leave it like this for now, just have to find the time to go outside at night, setup the tripod with my camera, setup long exposure, and actually take the photo. maybe tomorrow morning before the sun comes up or tonight after work.
okay here is the results, the picture is a lil blurry, I’ll have to fiddle with the camera some.

I’ll edit this later with a somewhat sexy pic or an attempt to tell an interesting (lie) story. 

 

  There once was a man from Nantukette ...Who was helping me work on my space shuttle . I stopped at a garage sale and the owner said to me “I might have something you might be interested out back in the barn . My first reaction was “ Where in the hell am I going to get those missing panels and clearly it needs a headlight modification “ . People don’t realize how dark it is in space and I don’t want to be blindly running into some soviet space trash left by monkeys or junk cars left by Musk or Branson. IDK . Do you think this light would work well in a vacuum?
