Canon FD 55mm 1.2 MOD - DIY EOS Mount - infinity focus and no f-stop loss by rnvk on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I had this Canon F1 with great lenses, and Canon does not make a 55mm 1.2 anymore, so I started to look for a FD EOS mount adaptor, but all available make you lose 1 f-stop and infinity focus. So I though to my self, this has to work with the EOS if was a bit closer to the Body, so I tock the attachment ring and the aperture ring and made a EOS mount, the hard part was to find the right distance, but it worked! with this mod you can make any FD into EOS with no losses (but control over aperture), actuly, i dont think you will be able to put together the FD rings back…. very complicated… :)
Update in response to Arthur:Hi Arthur, I used a mount from a broken 18-55 kit lens, i removed the extra EF-S part from it. than i enlarged the whole to fit the larger back element. 
To mod the FD lens you will have to remove the mount ring and the aperture ring and whatever else is hanging(dont mess with the focus system.)
Then lock the aperture wide open, and use a lot!! hot glue to fix it on the mount(good becouse if you mistake you can re-do it), use Black take to make sure there are no light leaks.
And thats it

DIY RingFlash / Feito em Casa (more photos on comments) by Chaval Brasil on Flickr.Via Flickr:
[Explored]
Featured in a www.diyphotography.net/readers-projects-the-cd-spindle-ri…, it’s a great site for learning, I really recommend!
If you like this and make an improved version, please let me know so I can get some new ideas!
Thanks Kidneri for the idea on using a CD spindle case for the ring, and many other people on Flickr who did a similar project and posted the instructions.
With this piece of cardboard, plastic, tape and glue, I can take 1:1 photos from 30cm of the subject at 1/200s, f/22, ISO 100 in complete darkness, pretty good!
It makes a wrap around light with a soft shadow, much better than any diffuser I’ve tried for macro. Take a look at the photos I’ve taken with this ringflash.
Well, it’s not perfect… there’s a light loss, so the flash may fire at high power and I will need to wait it to recharge, but not much. It’s also too small for portraits, only indicated for macro.

Se você gostar dessa gambiarra e fizer algo melhor, por favor me avise assim posso pegar algumas novas idéias!
Obrigado Kidneri pela idéia de usar um tubo de mídias de CD para o anel, e muitas outras pessoas no Flickr que fizeram um projeto semelhante e colocaram instruções.
Com papelão, plástico, fita e cola, eu consigo tirar fotos 1:1 à 30cm do alvo em 1/200s, f/22, ISO 100 em completa escuridão, muito bom!
Ele cria uma luz em volta do objeto com uma sombra suave, muito melhor que qualquer difusor que tentei para macro. Veja as fotos que tirei com esse ringflash.
Bom, não é perfeito… há uma perda de luz, então o flash pode disparar em alta potência e demorar um pouco para recarregar, mas não muito. Também é pequeno demais para retratos, só indicado para macro mesmo.

New DIY Intervalometer by r o s e n d a h l on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I want to do more time-lapse photography without having to trigger the camera manually. I also didn’t want to spent over $100 for a professional model, so I built this one for about $20 (not including the empty Altoids tin).  It’s a snug fit between the electronics, switches, 9V battery and wires, so the rubber bands keep it securely shut. 
The switch on the bottom is on/off, other switch is for long or short periods between pictures. The potentiometer varies the time from 3 to 30 seconds (short setting) and 30 seconds to 4:30 minutes (long setting). At the other end is a 3.5mm phone jack that I plug the camera into.
Hopefully I’ll get out and use it tomorrow.
Strobist info: Canon 430EXII into umbrella to left of camera. Tin is resting on ‘custom Lego stand’ on top of white foam core. Exposure bumped up in Lightroom.
Update: First test shot of a sunset posted on Vimeo. Be sure to watch the HD version.

DIY Polytunnel by monica.shaw on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Am getting sick of the weather being too cold to plant out  my veggies, so I made this to protect them.  Made from salvaged MDPE piping, leftover bricks from the clay oven, and polythene sheeting.  I think I may need a more secure way to fasten the tarp to the frame.  Any ideas?

diy coconut milk by elana’s pantry on Flickr.Via Flickr:
This Homemade Coconut Milk recipe is a little messy to make,  however, I like it since it’s a heck of a lot easier than cracking open a fresh coconut and scooping out the “meat,” etc.
