Re: Anyone into photography?

It's the Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 135mm f/3.5 ("zebra" version), an East German lens from the late 1960s. It looks like this from the side (photo is of the version that was exported to the Western bloc, hence why it says "aus JENA" and "S" instead of "Carl Zeiss Jena...

Re: Anyone into photography?

ITP: a bird who wasn't afraid of me (I think it's a juvenile). On the plus side, it was nice not having to crop these photos AT ALL. On the other hand, manual close focusing with a long lens is a bitch. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7784/27059902972_863fa79f01_o.jpg IMGP8433_1280x848_watermark by S...

Re: Animazement 2016 AMV Contest - DEADLINE MAY 1ST

You definitely need to try and bump your thread next year. Normally contests will bump their threads as periodic reminders since most people tend to send later, and if your contest is far down the list, it is REALLY easy to overlook.

Re: AnimeNEXT 2016 AMV Contest (DL: April 30)

All right. I don't have the play order set yet, but I have the finalists, and I believe I have the categories as well -- though it certainly wasn't easy this year; this may be the most difficult category balance of finalists I have ever had to work with.

Re: 24 fps vs 30 fps in AMV's

Yes. There is a big difference in the two, and it's most notably seen in the transitions, effects, and zooming in AMV's, now, out of curiosity, which do you think is the best for AMV making?

You gave your address as Houston, Texas; if you've moved since then, I don't have your new address.

Three weeks left!

Similarly to last year, you can track the relative distribution of entered elements here. In particular, we could use more parodies.
