Title: Keycap & Keyboard Photography
Post by: flauntingpigeon on Thu, 23 May 2013, 12:24:20
I thought I would start a thread to show off creative ways to take photos of keys. Got bored today so out came my camera so I shot some of BunnyLakes Keys. Let me know what people think of the photos.

How did you modify your Pac to USB? I forgot to ask you at the meetup.

How did you modify your Pac to USB? I forgot to ask you at the meetup.

I made reddit thread for the mod, actually, see here:
http://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/1befcb/modification_dolch_pac_65_keyboard_usb_conversion/ (http://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/1befcb/modification_dolch_pac_65_keyboard_usb_conversion/)

Basically, I opened up the PS/2 end of one of these PS/2 -> USB convertors from this GB (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=40549.0 (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=40549.0)) and soldered it to the appropriate wires coming from the PAC board.  The imgur album link @ reddit should be pretty helpful.

Beautiful pictures and keyboards, man.. Especially that red translucent.

I guess I will post the clack pictures I took the other day.. They aren't great, but I guess the aren't bad either. I really ought to get a proper light setup though.

That image seems broken, but you might look through the recent SP Crap Bag threads - there are a lot of odd and unusual keycaps surfacing there.

It's not SP. He got it from some typewriter that used Cherry doubleshot keycaps.

Not MX stem but I just picked up a Royal 8000 with a blue CODE key for $8 on eBay :)

Where exactly did you get that Code key from? Been trying to find out for ages!

The code keycap is a cherry B profile ABS doubleshot, pulled from a TA Royal Alpha 110 typewriter, which also included an alpha set of TA green on light gray thick PBT dyesubs.  I found it on ebay - probably also worth mentioning that I haven't seen another example of this particular model typewriter come up again since I bought mine about 6 months ago... they are not easy to find these days.

Back to the OP topic, I did some fun photos with keypop's polycarb series caps not too long ago, here's the thread: http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=43921.0 (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=43921.0)

The retro on white is especially nice :)

The main trick is lighting, then take lots of photos (digital cameras FTW) from different angles, and pick the best one to upload.

There are a couple of GH photography threads with lots of excellent tips!

^ True
I still prefer natural lighting best, ive tried different methods including lighting with monitor
natural ftw

except you've a good camera and proper lens
was using 50mm f/1.2 with my mark III for the photo above
god I really need 100mm

It really doesn't get much better than natural lighting. I've found that bounce flash can come pretty close, though it's difficult to do with large items.

Natural lighting is my preferred, but you can get some fantastic shots with a proper artificial light setup.

I need to get a better lens, or something, because I can't take any close up shots.
I just have an Olympus micro 4/3 with a 45mm f1.2

How are you setting up your camera to do close-up photos?  Are you bringing it very close to the cases or placing it at some distance + using max optical zoom?  The photo you linked is not macro, because those objects are quite large vs. your distance from them.  Macro would be trying to take a photo of a keycap on one of those keyboards.

The closest objects I can focus on with my current lens are about 2 and a half feet away, and my lens doesn't zoom, so I can't get any closer.

Ah, no zoom :(  Do you have a telephoto lens with zoom that you could use instead?  (looks like no, just checking).  Also, nope, can't tell! :)  Most people who are "new to photography" wouldn't even know what lens they have, and you actually listed some details.

I think that is the same grease as is used in the new switches, just aged/dirtier (and in a greater amount than usual - but I've seen similar colored grease in new MX switches).

Thanks! ;D Although, I think the photo of the stems is way out of focus. It's really hard to get the focus right with these extension tubes. They do a great job considering they cost £10, but the focusing is really tricky.

Tactile greys are cool. I'll use them in my phantom with some lighter springs once my phantom arrives.. :-X

I think that is the same grease as is used in the new switches, just aged/dirtier (and in a greater amount than usual - but I've seen similar colored grease in new MX switches).
You're probably right about it being the same lube. The amount is far, far greater than any switch I've seen before though.

this is a different dslr, owned by the school, my d90 produces better photos on auto, and i would change the settings to make it look good on my d90, but the display screen is ****ed due to my little brother, so thats getting fixed. it's basically stuck on auto.

Just every lamp in the room :)  Which is 2 recessed flood light style bulbs overhead + a few track lights around.  The main issue I have with indoor lighting is compensating for yellow / unnatural hues from CFL bulbs.

I like these two pics...:P

Man... only found this thread today but some seriously awesome looking keyboards and keycaps in this thread. ESPECIALLY love the ones I quoted (pictures saved :P ) So very very nice.



Update:

Some photos I took of my keycaps recently (click on pictures or open in new tab to see full resolution):

Pictures were taken with an Olympus Pen EP-2 Micro Four Thirds camera.

They're not selling these still, are they? The only caps I can find on their site have 1.5 ctrl and alt.
Also--sorry for the noob question--are the stems on 1.5 modifiers offset so they fit a filco, or any other board made for 1.25 modifiers?

Oh I was looking at these: http://www.originativeco.com/collections/keysets/products/bsp-classic-beige. Unfortunately, though, it's missing a windows key and a spacebar. I don't think it comes with 1.25 mods.

Title: Re: Keycap & Keyboard Photography
Post by: Photoelectric on Mon, 10 February 2014, 14:20:45
I have 3 track lights over my desk that are pointing at a wall mostly with 2700K soft white bulbs giving some dimmer diffuse light.  Then I also use a tall floor lamp + side extension, both with some white diffuse translucent shades on and 3500K "bright white" CFL bulbs.  I pull out the floor lamp and adjust it next to whatever I take photographs of.  I have to adjust white balance on my camera so it looks right with those indoor lights.

Try using a smaller aperture if you want more of the image in focus.  A tripod/self timer would probably help, too.

Check out used gear.  I bought a used Manfrotto from my local camera shop, cost was a fraction of a new unit, and it's rock steady.  You wouldn't know it from my pictures, mind you, but when I do use it, it's a real boost to image quality. 

I also got a cheap remote shutter release/camera trigger, to minimize any shaking when taking longer exposure shots.  Beats the heck out of setting every shot for a 2-second delay...   :thumb:

I may do just that, good tripods are built to last so if I can get a good one for half the price of a new one than success!

I don't use a remote shutter (maybe I should get one, I don't know) I just always set the camera's self timer to 10 seconds or whatever when I am taking long exposure shots. Seems to do the trick for me.

Just get yourself an iPhone :)  Mashby takes some amazing photographs with his!  This (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/812572-REG/Panasonic_DMC_FZ47PK_LUMIX_DMC_FZ47_Digital_Camera.html) is my camera, and it's far from top of the line.  Was a more budget-friendly bridge camera when I got it in 2011.

The most important thing I've found is 1. knowing your "instrument" well (manual + lots of practice), 2. strategic lighting, 3. composition.  You don't need a fancy DSLR to take good photographs.  I think $80-100 can get a "good enough" camera these days, and the rest would be well spent on some lamps and a tripod.

Tried that, it is worse than my current setup.

My current setup: http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=39675.msg783890#msg783890

Except that one of the legs on the tripod is loose and it won't stand up by itself any more.

Hehe, I mean a "real" tripod.  Something that could be compact or extend when needed to stand on the floor and be tall.  Also for macro photos, it's definitely better to have more powerful zoom and place your camera a bit farther away.  Another note: taking a photograph of an extended object (like a long keyboard) from above and too close results in some curvature distortion: the keyboard will look curved and warped.  Better to take the photo from farther away, zoomed in, such that the focal length >> length of the object.  Example in the first image here (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=52888.msg1176566#msg1176566).

I certainly don't.
I just have a m4/3 I got off of Craigslist for 160 bucks, and a 45mm lens, which isn't very good for taking pictures of keyboards.

I have a Nikon DSLR as well, and that 18-55mm lens is an excellent all-rounder!  I probably use it more than any of the other lenses I've accumulated.  I even bought a dedicated macro lens, but it's a bit fiddly to set it up, so I use the 18-55 for documenting projects and miscellaneous shots far more than I use the macro lens.

You should check out manual Nikon lenses.  Not sure about D3100 compatibility, but on mine I can use anything that has a Nikon mount, so all the old F-mount lenses work just fine.  You have to use the fully manual setting, which for me means a lot of test shots while I fiddle with aperture and exposure, but it's a lot of fun once it's dialed in correctly.  Just don't forget to set white balance using a sheet of paper or something, auto white balance doesn't work very well with older glass.

The best part is the price to play; old lenses go for pennies on eBay, I've gotten several for the price of shipping plus a dollar.  Pawn shops are eager to move old lenses out of their display cases, usually for ten bucks or so.  My local camera shop has a case of old camera lenses, and I've bought quite a few of the old Nikon Micro lenses from them - no one is interested in them since they think they're just for film cameras.

I guess people make their own, but I would need to buy a real camera first.  Instead I use either paper wrapped around a desk lamp, or this app (http://appshopper.com/photography/softbox-pro-for-ipad) on my iPad.  I'm guessing you have something better than my ghetto fabulous setup, though. :)

HPE did a better job of photographing these than I did, but.. Sprits 62g gold springs. They have a really beautiful, lush colour to them.

I thought it was a mouse lemur, but on closer inspection... the paws/tail are a bit off - so I think you are correct.

Whatever it is, I could totally see it being recreated in Bingecap form.

Thanks, and I would post the larger version but GH is being a difficult..

What macro lens would you guys suggest for a nikon d7100?

It all depends on how much you want to spend.  Here's four good recommendations. 

http://www.cameralabs.com/lenses/lens_buyers_guide/Nikon_Nikkor_lenses/Which_close-up_lens/Which_Nikkor_Nikon_macro_close-up_flower_insect_lens.shtml

The more money you spend the better your pics will be with Marco, IMO.  What you get for your money is a bigger aperture, and the ability to shoot 1:1 from farther away, which allows for more lighting options.  Essentially, the cheaper your Macro lens, the closer you have to get to the subject, which is bad because you will block your light.

Keep in mind that for macro shots you will definitely need a tripod, so get one of those.  Also for macro photography you will need some good lighting.  The best being a ring flash. 

Here is the best middle-of-the-road Nikkor Micro (Macro) lens, IMO:

Thank you very much for posting these :)

You have also managed to capture a particular shade of yellow from this set of keycaps that I have not seen before.  And believe me I have seen many pictures of these keycaps, including dozens I took of my own set.

Damnit, now you're making me want to dig my set out again ;)

I really love the yellow of these! Striking, but subdued. And it changes shades under different lighting conditions too.
A shame that it's just plain old ABS with printed legends.

are you all photographers? All the shots here are amazing! Too bad I only have my crappy cellphone camera, so I should wait until I get a decent camera to make some pictures of my Ergo Clear.

It's always funny to see on /g/ images and recognize the GH or DT users!

Here's a shot of my daily driver at home (until my SSK got it's cable and cleaning) with one of these Hellboy caps. I'm too lazy to change that magenta space bar and esc keycap to something different. I can't look at it anymore.

I don't have that expert knowledge regarding keycap quality, but these Hammer caps seem to be high quality. No bubbles, scratches, and they look all in all very clean. Maybe too clean, like a 'normal' industrial product.

Well, you saved them for the perfect opportunity, IMO. Looks absolutely fooking gorgeous. Can't believe how well it matches that case... The blank RGB too... I already made a big ass deal about those blank RGB's when you first posted them after you got'm and did the combo with the blank whites (yes, it's another picture I have saved... lol).

Lubed vintage blacks are something I'm very familiar with, and I also did it with imsto thicks, and the combo is bloody brilliant (b^_^)b

OOOO! Thank you for this link. I tend to not even search because of prices, but this is affordable. Normally, I prefer natural lighting but there are times when I'm taking shots of keycaps... it's hard to get the right detail. This should help me a lot with my micro four thirds camera.

Yeah, I'm more into natural lighting as well
but due to the nature of my work, I can only do stuff at night :(
if you go to banggood.com you can even find it cheaper since the shipping is free, I'm under the vpn cloak at the moment and I just couldn't open banggood under it and search for you

It's not thick PBT so there isn't a huge difference from the stock Filco ABS keycaps. But it's not bad at all, considering you can supply any image you want, and it's only about 3 Dollars a cap.

A friend directed me to a guy's etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/DecentKeyboards (https://www.etsy.com/shop/DecentKeyboards)) and when I saw he was pretty familiar with all the ~anime things~, I decided to give it a go.
Most likely going to ask him to do even more stuff once I figure out what other keys on the keyboard I can put pretty caps on. And figure out how to finance the four or so sets of keycaps I'm ordering (oops).

Wow wow WOW, I'm loving the colors and the fontfaces on it.

Glad you like them! It was love at first sight for me on the mock-up picture... It turned out way better than I could have imagined.


Awesome shots Vesper! That's a great looking set.

Thanks, bro <3 I'll be sure to post more photos of it when the sun comes back up in the next few days :P

I got my custom PBT dyesubs in the mail the other day!!
It's not thick PBT so there isn't a huge difference from the stock Filco ABS keycaps. But it's not bad at all, considering you can supply any image you want, and it's only about 3 Dollars a cap.

Woah, cool! Those look really good!

Yeah, I'm still planning on putting the yellow alphas and dox keys on my ergo dox, but I'm going to wait until I've changed the switch type in the Dox before I place the keycaps on. Only problem is, I left my switch opener in Tampa, so I'm going to wait until I go to Tampa next week to pick it up :D I'll be sure to post that baby once it's done.

Agreed. Either way, the two colors go very well together. So butter. Much smooth.

OAN, natural lighting over "fake" lighting. (brad needs to go shoot some Golden Hour keycap shots ... LOL)

That's quite busy, but beautiful! ;)
I never got in on the Purple Mods set but in hindsight I probably should have. They go well with a lot of boards.

Oh trust me, majority of the photos were taken without the flash. I kind of just experimented with the flash, and it gave me brilliant lighting... $550 flash; it better... However, pretty much every photo going in here will be without flash (natural lighting) <3 Can't break away from my signature style now, can I... LOL.

These are my very first attempts at close-up macro. I don't have a macro lens, so I have had to hold the lenses I have facing the wrong way in order to get the required magnification. They are still a bit blurry, some fading and not perfectly in focus, but I am slowly getting better at it.

Looks like mine, with a light smattering of random dust particles here and there.  Makes you wonder how some people managed to macro-photograph things with not a single dust atom in sight!

It's lens stacking/reverse mount macro.  If you keep your lens clean and have a slightly longer exposure, you can avoid most dust.

Okay, I gave this a try myself.  In a quick 1 minute photo shoot, here's what I came up with.  I had these at full aperture (so depth of field is basically zero, haha), where was yours at?  I don't have a way to mount this mess on a tripod, I'm just holding the second lens with my other hand, so it's hard to get longer exposures.  Also, I do have a macro lens, so this wasn't a matter of necessity, but rather for fun.  And holy crap, this magnifies wayyy more than the macro, so I'm glad I gave it a try.  xD

Anyway, here they are.  Yes, they're not very good.  I just wanted to post them as my first attempts.  :)

Magnification is focal length of first lens divided by the second. A If you have a 300mm tele-lens and attach a 10mm wide angle, you get 30:1. Most macros only reach 1:1. You have to shoot at full aperture. Decreasing it will not affect DOF, but rather just clip the image further. Focusing the first lens also affects clipping, so you need to focus using the second lens. In order to increase the DOF, you need to perform focus stacking. I have managed to decrease the amount of clipping. Below are some images of my mouse-mat and the 35mm stereo connector (TRRS) of my Ergodox.

(http://i.imgur.com/RUuW5g2.jpg)(http://i.imgur.com/BSqhxlR.jpg)(http://i.imgur.com/0zkia9W.jpg)

The high magnification achieved this way isn't suitable for man-made objects though. They lack detail at this level. 1:1 macros are enough to capture them quite well. Organic objects have an infinite level of detail in comparison. The image below is 1:1 for instance.

I decided to mess around a little with lens stacking a little as well.  Truth be told, I totally forgot about it until this thread.  I messed around with some Triumph Adler and Alps dyesubs and doubleshots and my tactile Green Alps.  Since I'm importing them on my laptop, I have no clue how good or crappy they are since they're full size and unedited.

I finally got the Diatec ABS doubleshots in the mail!

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpa1/t31.0-8/10365477_10204783550298253_5379698753388711094_o.jpg)
I wish they came in a clamshell case so I could put the old keycaps in it. After carefully lining all the old yellow caps on the tray, they ended up just spilling all over when I put it back in the plastic. Oops.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xaf1/t31.0-8/10293769_10204783550578260_3530484150049489384_o.jpg)
Quick comparison between the stock yellow and the doubleshots.

On their own, they don't look big, but when you look at them at this angle side by side, they are REALLY really big.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xaf1/t31.0-8/10498246_10204783550538259_7840737421759919135_o.jpg)
All installed! Keeping some of my old cylindrical OEM profile caps though, because I enjoy looking at them very much.

I know! I'm so torn... I'm thinking I'll get another fullsize KB (perhaps the filco multicam?) to put these on.
But that will be in the distant future.

Oh don't worry about it, when I resized the width to 1920 it was 80px too tall anyway so I was able to frame it and the watermark was essentially cropped out :P But a tiny water mark like that is no problem!

Looks so nice, proof that just because a keycap is transparent, it doesn't need to be backlit :D

The whole black and red theme works so well on that board.

I am not sure what if anything I want to do with it yet. I am kind of liking how it blends in with my setup so nice right now. If only the lime green keycaps were a bit less bright, those would be perfect.

Only thing I am sad about right now is how none of my novelty keycaps are topre lol. Hope I can get in the next brobot sale, I didn't get anything from the 4grabs :P

Yeah, mang. A transparent keycap doesn't need back lighting! It's transparent, which means that surrounding light and monitor light will shine right through it and will illuminate :D I actually think it looks better that way. When you have LED's lighting them up, they usually don't let you see the details of that keycap.

Oh yeah. It totally didn't cross my mind that all your caps are MX :P I'm sure you'll get in on the next sale. I have a lime green set too but I have no green novelty caps for Topre either lol so it's hard to match that set up with many things. I've been using them to match the green eyes of VS Purple, and that's it :P

I'm sure you'll come up with something soon :D With your camera setup tho, I'd drool over photos of the stock keyboard. It's beautiful as is!

I also didn't get in on the last 4grabs... or none of the 4grabs for that matter... never... :'( lol

Hehe, I have not been around long enough to feel that disappointment XD

I think I am 0/2 on 4grabs so far, and 0/1 on ek sales. Not fun

As for leds, yeah, they can be harsh when lighting up keycaps, although the reaper I have seems to take backlighting really well. My brothers purple haze v2 though, not so much, the light just doesn't diffuse enough so it looks better without backlighting.

And this is made with a 60mm macro lens. Glas and reflections like naasfu's pictures :) But it's the photo spot i like most now. A light table at work, with some milk blue glass. I made also some experiments with turned on lights, without success yet. I just like the lightening here.

Was dustin the main reason for the switch to Nikon?  I'm still trying to figure out which direction to go with my next purchase.  Some of the Nikons seem nice, but Canons are also nice.   :confused:

Glass is what matters... once you start investing in lenses, making a switch is very expensive. Whatever you decide, I highly recommend buying a body + 1 prime lens to begin with. Both platforms are very nice, and their mid to top range cameras play cat and mouse in terms of sensor dominance... right now I think Nikon has a slight edge, especially with their lower-end offerings (entry level Canons are pretty meh IMO, and I'm a Canon guy) but they quickly get much better. The heat is on Canon to make some leaps forward as micro 4/3rds has been killing it with video recently and even some cell phones w/4K resolution are putting the hurt on the 5DMKIII. Canon has kind of cornered themselves trying to not cannibalize sales of the C300 by making their DSLRs too good - it'll be cool to see what shows up at Photokina this year  ^-^

I'm currently debating between the 70D and the ... would the equivalent be the D5300?

I'm also interested in having it work well for astrophotography, so I have that consideration thrown into the mix as well.  :) 

Maybe you can help me make a decision!  :P

Equivalent to 70D will be D7000 or D7100. I am upgrading my old Canon 40D to Nikon D7000. I should be here on Monday and I can not wait!

Oh interesting, astrophotography definitely adds complexity to your decision! Canon actually makes an astrophotography variant of the 60D, the 60Da (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/853491-REG/Canon_6596B002_EOS_60Da_DSLR_Camera.html) that I believe comes stock without the IR filter; it however seems ridiculously priced ($1,499 @ BH vs regular 60D @ $699) so I'm not sure that would be the best option... personally I'd rather put the extra money towards a nice lens  :)) I will have to read up on what's new and what's coming down the pipe for Canon / Nikon/ Sony / Pentax / Olympus / et al.  :thumb:

Yeah, I saw that 60Da  :))  Not quite ready for that big of a purchase!  Though it does look really great...  If you do find out things relevant to my interests, you should let me know.  :-*  Otherwise I'll just get impatient and pick on at random.  :P

I heard that Nikon will produce better quality pictures by a small margin and D7000 had really good reviews so I decided to switch over.

<3333 "my all time favorite filco" <3333 You're so nice! I'm honored!!!

The Filco has had the Penumbra set on it for the past month and a half or so. Your favorite theme has been resting on my very very old Ducky. My Filco will naturally go back to being in it's ultimate form in the future, I PROMISE!

You honor me! And don't worry, my Clacks are always on a board and never stored away :D

Here's something to alleviate your small craving though <3 Same love, different vessel.

Is that a keyboard?

That's not a very helpful answer is it? I honestly don't know. Is it a typewriter, is it a laptop, is it a keyboard? I have no idea.

I dropped my DSLR and lens about 2 months ago, and got everything back this week. First only the focus ring of the lens was repaired, and i thought everything is good. But it was not, the camera had a serious back focus, which was now repaired. All in all it was about €450 :( I made some fast test pictures, and this is one of it; my SSK with CC Checkeys.

There is actually a lot you can do if you just have some proper lighting.
$30 in lights + $8 for batteries + $15 for charger + $2.50 for a mini tripod = $55 already gets you one of these, which is enough to seriously increase the quality of your photos.

I actually have a really nice light that mistakemistake was kind enough to gift me Jaccow. The reason I don't use it is that I couldn't get a hang of how to setup the lighting so my shots always had tons of shadows in them that were odd looking. But you're right, I should setup some better lighting. Thanks for the tip :D.

What kind of lighting are you using? I think your photos are already great but with some better lighting, they'd be perfect!

Also, are you using a macro lens? For you keycap photos, I think you can zoom in a lil' or get closer to get DAT texture, breh :D

Yep.  All about the lighting.  You can take really great shots that require (near) zero post-processing if your lighting is spot-on. 

CPTBadAss, you should hit me up sometime to talk about your lighting, we might be able to find a way to get rid of those pesky shadows.  ;)

5000k light up top wasn't very bright compared to the 120v 100 watt lights on the sides (more than likely in the incandescent range for color temp).

It's the stock lens. If I remember right it's a "EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens". Most of the shots are at 55mm, so full zoom. No macro lens because I'm renting this camera from the school for a photography class and because I'm sure they're expensive :(

All shots were on a tripod with a 2 second delay before taking the exposure. Aperture tended to be around F5.6-F6.3 and a 1/30 shutter speed. ISO always at 100.

Not sure what all exactly he has, but it looks similar to one of these. You can mount it on camera or on a tripod and you can turn the brightness up and down. Comes in handy for a lot of different projects!

Great pics! I like the industrial/functional feel of the photos.

At first when I saw you post in here I thought you had already gotten the Corsa :))

5000k light up top wasn't very bright compared to the 120v 100 watt lights on the sides (more than likely in the incandescent range for color temp).

It's the stock lens. If I remember right it's a "EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens". Most of the shots are at 55mm, so full zoom. No macro lens because I'm renting this camera from the school for a photography class and because I'm sure they're expensive :(

All shots were on a tripod with a 2 second delay before taking the exposure. Aperture tended to be around F5.6-F6.3 and a 1/30 shutter speed. ISO always at 100.

Oh wow! That setup is quite something! Hmmm maybe you're adding a lil' too much light directly on the subject? I think if you tried lowering the light levels and used a different form of light it'd help a little. The incandescent light you're using is most probably distorting with the color balance of your photos because of the yellowish light it gives off (I never use my ceiling light for my photos because I get a yellow-washed overall look). I think using white fluorescent lights will greatly help you.

Can you give some hints on what to search for to find what you've got on your desk there?  I've stumbled upon similar setups, but can't remember what search terms I used, and now all I'm finding are much bigger setups.

I have had one of these batteries fail. It doesn't hold a charge for more than a couple of minutes but the other one can go weeks with occasional use without recharging.

I don't know if there are any other LOD keycaps out there, I think I saw someone with a messed up one where the face was upside down but I don't think there are any others.

Great lightening! What is it that is not perfect for you?

Probably the 10th shot which is similar, even the lightening, but it's perfect weather right now, so i had to take another picture! Also i have to change the keyboard in the next weeks, to make some new pictures. But i love that SSK so much, that every keyboard project is postponed for now.

And again a shot from above (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=34712.msg1463136#msg1463136), which is not easy to achieve with a 100mm lens. I use a ladder, which is almost high enough. It could be little bit higher, since a can't really see what i photograph.

Clearly they are very different, and be sure to take my word for it since I want whichever one was heavily inspired by the first one.

:sarcasm:


But yes, they are very similar and I noted that in a duck thread a while ago, as far as I know the FMJ cases were designed and produced before any of the duck cases that share that design.

Finally got around to (test) placing the Blank Black Cherry POM (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=63800.0) caps I found in Taiwan... :D Thank you Cherry for labeling the proper rows under your keys! It made my life so much easier!  :))

As far as feel goes, I think I'm liking the slippery POM feel.  :) Theses keycaps also make each keypress _super_ quiet! I'm a fairly gentle typer, but even when bottoming out on MX Reds, it sounds like I have o-rings dampening them without the o-ring feeling! It's crazy! :eek: I think it's probably a combination of thick keys + POM being even denser than PBT.

Cons:
-F&J scoops seem a bit loose? I'm not sure if this happens on regular scooped Cherry DS/Dyesub caps, but when I was placing the scooped keys onto the switch, half a side would raise slightly up if I pressed down on one side. The cap ends up not sitting completely flush when that happens (and both sides can raise if you press down with a bit of force on the opposite end of the scoop). Is it due to lower friction when placing POM keycaps on POM stems?
-Bubbled Windows keys are thin POM. :( ~0.8mm vs ~1.5mm on all other keycaps.
-Indents are visible on top of keys longer than 1u if you're viewing directly from the top. At extreme angles, you can see the stems on 1u keys.
-(Debatable) Off-center spacebar stem (but still works if you place it on a center stemmed keyboard. Will be a bit wobbly though).


104key Blank Black Cherry POM
Scooped F&J, nib on numpad "5".
Bit of tape was placed on Caps Lock to keep it in place

Well I actually went out and purchased a K65 to harvest them, so they better be! They actually have a hole in the bottom to let the light shine through better. Also, as far as I can tell the top part is a new, stiffer material from the black housings we know. It was a bit harder to take them apart. The pins look typical silver color to me.

Yep, those are definitely different from what I got. The ones I harvested have standard pins and a more opaque bottom enclosure. But yeah, it does have that hole where the led goes but on the bottom enclosure instead of the top.

At least the light from the K65 shines through them just fine, but yeah I was definitely disappointed once I saw the bottom housings. </3

They are actually much better than the AboStudio tops. They are made from a harder material but have similar levels of transparency.

Cherry is on left and AboStudio is on right.

Unfortunately I can't put them through stress tests because I need every cover that I have lol.


EDIT: Sorry, allow me to explain a bit further. You are probably wondering how I know that the Cherry tops are made from a harder material. When I take apart switches I use two small flathead screwdrivers to simultaneously loosen the "legs" from one side of the bottom housing. I found it much harder to flex the legs on the new cherry tops. Also, when I am taking apart switches using AboStudio tops I can almost ALWAYS find bend marks (white lines or auras) where the legs were flexed. This has yet to happen with me regarding the Cherry tops. :]

That's a good looking board.

The quality of the PCB and the aluminum plate is not really good, i had to re-solder 2 diodes, cut the aluminum plate because of ISO Enter not fitting perfect. The case is very nice, especially for its price; it's the 60$ 60% case from Pexon. Here's a close up from the cut aluminum plate:

Next time i will get a 60% PCB like the Nerd 60 or similar one for sure!

They used to be. Until that eBay seller got his hands on some stock. They were quite cheap at first, like €50 or so, then he found out why there suddenly was so much demand and he increased prices.
They're actually really fun boards, lubed MX Clears, pcb-mounted and screw-on stabilizers. And an awesome set of keycaps to boot. ;)
The layout is nice too:

Finally got the keys for my mechanical keyboard in the mail today, and that means that I am using a mechanical keyboard for the first time ever! It feels very nice and I have seen my typing speed increase from around 105 to 115 or so. But at first I was making a lot of errors. It is pretty difficult to adjust to the smaller form factor of my new keyboard.

A prime lens with a lens extender works fine unless you plan on taking professional quality photos. The only problem you might run into is like the one with my lens (Canon EF 50mm) where you can't adjust the aperture on the lens itself and since there aren't any electronics inside the cheap extenders, you're stuck with a tiny focal point

thats the issue all my prime lenses have a super wide apeture 1.2, 1.8 ect and too much bokeh in a macro is an issue at times

Dirty caps from a beam spring keyboard:

(http://i.imgur.com/guGGM12.jpg)

And a picture of the keyboard itself - i have to re-shoot it sometimes, because there's some white missing in the left and on the right side, and for my taste too much distortion. It just looks too wide, and it isn't that wide in reality. Maybe i'll make a new picture when everything is cleaned  :)

Even with their old fashioned design or because of that they are really nice in reality! When i saw them first i thought i will never buy such a keyboard for that price - long time before i recognized keyboards as a hobby or something special, when reading reviews from pc/hardware magazines praising them.

How do you clean your caps?? I've tried some stuff to clean mine and they just don't seem to get clean, or at least stay clean for long lol

I think there are many factors to it~

1. I'm kind of a clean freak, so I always clean my hands before using my keyboards (I even tell my friends to clean their hands before using it. LOL!)

2. I always put on the Filco plastic dust cover when not using it.

3. I dust my keyboard every day (takes like 10 seconds using a cloth to tap/hit dust off).

4. I use isopropyl alcohol and a white paper towel or clean piece of fabric to wipe it down (at least once a week).

5. My house is currently pet/smoke free.

Hope that helps, babay ~

Great pictures! I love the white Filco cases! That's true, PBT reflects the light rather matte than glossy, and it gives a nice touch to the color of the cap. With ABS caps it's not so easy, since it can be super glossy.

I think there are many factors to it~

1. I'm kind of a clean freak, so I always clean my hands before using my keyboards (I even tell my friends to clean their hands before using it. LOL!)

2. I always put on the Filco plastic dust cover when not using it.

5. My house is currently pet/smoke free.

Hope that helps, babay ~

:) I also do clean my hands almost always before using a keyboard, and i even searched for the perfect wet cleaning towels because at work the toilets are far away. I think i'm crazy... Nevermind, something like this:

That keyboard is lookin' clean~ White Filco's UNITE!


Beautiful set and keyboard! White filcos are always nice :D Filcos give off a unique sound when typing imo too !

Thanks, breh <3 I agree with you on the unique sound part! Filco construction is really sturdy and tight so there's definitely no rattle that some can give off.


Great pictures! I love the white Filco cases! That's true, PBT reflects the light rather matte than glossy, and it gives a nice touch to the color of the cap. With ABS caps it's not so easy, since it can be super glossy.

:) I also do clean my hands almost always before using a keyboard, and i even searched for the perfect wet cleaning towels because at work the toilets are far away. I think i'm crazy... Nevermind, something like this:

Thanks! Yeah, the Filco "white" is actually a beige-like white, so it actually goes very well with the beige-like white IMSTO thick PBT.

Oo! Nice wet cleaning towels. Seems so convenient. I'd consider it but rubbing alcohol is so much cheaper for me :P You're not crazy! Keeping one's keyboard clean is a duty :P

Nice!  The company I work at has one of these sitting around in really good condition.  They won't let me use it since they 'think' there is a
test computer that requires a din5 connector that it is meant for, but nobody can tell me where said computer is.  So, it just sits unused
and unappreciated except for me when I wander by it.   :'(

Just get a converter, or find some other cheap board with a din5. You can't just let it sit unappreciated ;)

Maybe I will. Nobody realizes its value since I'm the only keyboard lover.  And the badge is missing. Took me a while to figure out what it was since there were literally no other markings anywhere. Do you know if the  original caps are pbt? They kind of felt that way to me. Although I see you've swapped out the alphas and the escape key.
