Endless area to store junk? :?
I will shoot at some gel soon, but for now i have to put up with the spastic internal memory in my cam. I got the 4gig card but for some reason my cam won't or can't format it, works fine in my fathers cam though, go figure.
Plus lately i have had the 5-0 sniffing around at work so my Hybrids are in Hybernation for the time being :(

Crikey, the rozzers... "Yer nicked, mate."

Often high capacity cards won't agree with some cameras. Many things will accept no larger than 512 MB or 1G - have you checked your camera's manual to find it's limit?

I expect your camera to use 1BG max and no more.
You should have checked that before buying!

But hey you learn things by making mistakes so no problem.
Can happen to everyone, I almost bought 8GB for my w810i wich supports no more then 4gb.
I mailed the helpdesk and they told me 4gb was max for my phone so i bought 4.

So you can mail to kodak if you want to be sure.

Enter the "Box of Truth".
This box was constructed with 3mm thick Acrylic panels, 120mm square.
There are sixteen layers spaced 10mm apart. I fired from about 12 feet away at a 7x mix using a 12mm bb. My guess was that the round would go through 11 layers, i was one off, it did 10. Thats still a total of 30mm :D
Sorry about the crap vid quality, someone needs to learn how to zoom in!
I have got a before pic but it refuses to upload.

Hey Duelers, i did find the bb, sitting in the box after the shot. It didn't have a scratch on it. They are tough as those steel ball bearings.
If i had used a lead sinker it would have been just about obliterated i think.

Ragnarok, i would love to see what HEAL could do to a similar box. Bigger projectile should help a lot.

Hmm, HEAL doesn't have the same pressures as a 6x hybrid - 3x or 4x maybe - but the longer barrel might make up the difference.

I'll see if I can find some acrylic...

At a 7x mix Evbec predicts 827fps and 152flbs, with a 3.5grm projectile.

EDIT: It seems as though i have been mis-quoting the mixes i have been firing at, add 1x too all mixes!
The above Evbec prediction (IS FUCKED UP, In terms of flbs)however put it this way, the box of truth was a 7x mix not a 6x. (90 psi, i am correct am i not?)

sweet!

though you really need to have your camera mounted in a fixed (and protected) position closer to the target, that way we can view the carnage close-up :D

Erm, a 3.5 gram projectile travelling at 827fps has 0.5*0.0035*252^2 = ~111 joules, or ~82ft/lbs of kinetic energy. EVBEC's muzzle energy output programming must be screwed up.
