great ball machine! what camera did you use to take the pictures? those are totally beautiful :)

www139 (author)martijnb952015-04-12

jvc everio gze200 I think. I'll get back to you if that's not right... Thanks.

i see, a bit over my budget though :P

and yes, i recently started building again. i have developed some new lifts and mechanisms, however the machine needs lots of tweeking before completion. i will post an update when some more interesting things are working :P

I don't know where I saw this or if I came to the conclusion myself... Do you use your iPhone to make your videos? If so, nice job! It's HARD to deep them stable!

martijnb95 (author)www1392015-04-14

ipod touch, but that uses the same camera :P. Indeed, apple stuff sucks with pictures and video. i now use my phone, which is quite a bit better.

How old is it? If it's older than about 3 years, then yes it sucks. If not, it's 8 megapixels, which is great!

www139 (author)www1392015-04-15

if it is 3 years old it's 5 megapixels or less. :( and tat does suck. I think apple made the camera app give the video a vivid effect which made it look weird... :P

martijnb95 (author)www1392015-04-15

yeah, mine is an ipod touch 3, so very old :)

Good to hear! All your machines in the past are amazing, and I like the new elements and lifts. It's amazing that Elevation had all new lifts! Nice!

www139 (author)martijnb952015-04-15

www139 (author)martijnb952015-04-13

Yeah. :P We bought it for family video recording to replace our 15 year old tape camera :D lol.

Are you working on any new ball machines or anything of the like?

martijnb95 (author)www1392015-04-14

what about you?

www139 (author)martijnb952015-04-14

working on an a lot huger ball machine. 8 ft. (2.5 m) tall. That's all I'm gonna say :P (I don't now if it worked sorry if this is comment #2.)

martijnb95 (author)www1392015-04-14

actually i am. i recently got interested into knex again. my next ball machine will have some interesting new stuff in it, but it is not nearly close to being finished.
