This is why noobs shouldn't own expensive guns.......

^^^^^^^Thats a ****ing allen wrench broke off the in the ASA set screw!!!!!!!!:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

Put tank on it and it felt loose, went to tighten the screw and the allen wrench wouldn't go in. Took a look and some noob used a allen wrench that was a size to small, apparently it got jammed and then snapped off.




The fix:

You know how much I love drilling into a $1800 gun with a $250 anno job:dodgy:


After about a hour of careful drilling with a tiny drill bit I managed to get the allen wrench out with enough thread left on the set screw to be able to use allen wrench to get it out.

Wow, and this is why parents shouldn't buy $2k markers for their kids...

That makes me sad. I can't even tell you how careful I would have been in drilling that. I would have used a press just to make sure I didn't slip.

Noisy bokeh. Lose.

It was taken at ISO 1250 noob :rolleyes:

Haha I thought that was just my screen. What lens did you use?

bigred76
10-26-2010, 10:44 PM
It was taken at ISO 1250 noob :rolleyes:

If I'm a noob, then how would I know it was actually at ISO 640? And shot with your 40D and a 17-40L (19mm) in AV mode wide open (F/4)? :rolleyes:

Hob Hayward
10-27-2010, 04:41 AM
Tim's got a point, none of those are at iso 1250 :P

If you're going for bokeh might aswell use that 50/1.8... iso would be way down if you went all the way open and kept the same shutter. Probably just as sharp, if not moreso.

bigred76
10-27-2010, 12:06 PM
LOL, no way dude. 50 1.8 wide open is something I would never use. It's not a very sharp lens unless you have the metal MkI.

Hob Hayward
10-27-2010, 04:26 PM
Ehh wahteva, I've never had one, just heard they're amazing.. for the price. (doesn't really say that much)

I would bet he's got a better fast prime than that anyways.. I only said 50/1.8 because he used it in some of the other pictures.

EXIF doesn't tell you everything:p

It was under exposed by three stops using spot metering then pushed back up in post so the lime green would expose properly, thus iso 640 becomes 1250 :D

bigred76
10-27-2010, 10:36 PM
Ah, but that's in PP. It was shot at ISO 640, so it will stay ISO 640. You merely pushed it three stops brighter in PP. You did not adjust the picture's ISO it was shot at. NOOB. :D

yeah it's kind of bad when half the posts are about photography in a thread about a paintball gun on a paintball forum

I am going to use my Flux Capacitor to adjust your images to ISO 24812956 and you will all like it.

Still a hot marker, too bad it is probably already gone :)

Well, yeah. Commenting on a gun that will probably be around for two or three more days is rather pointless when I can pick on Dave about a rather noisy ISO indefinitely.
