I need a (video) camera

Kommentare sind ausgeschaltet

If you´re in Berlin and you need some sort of video/photo equipment, I can highly recommend 25p cine support. They even have a quadrotor to carry a GoPro that you can rent.

I´ve rented a battery, and even though I had it for 5 days, they only charged me for 3 days of useage.

MacMini Disk Update – with FusionDrive

Replacing the disk

Yesterday, Andy and I opened up his MacMini in order to replace the optical drive with a SSD. Actually, his HDD switched over to the optical bay, and the new SSD was placed in the harddrive bay.
I went quite smooth, the only special thing you need is the “Mac-Mini-Logic-Board-Removal-Tool”. It´s a piece of thick wire bent the right way, and it is worth every penny (6,95€), unless you buy it directly from Apple (39,95€).
Don´t forget to have a set of screwdrivers laying around as there are funny star shaped screws in the MacMini!
I was also using a “spudger” for the first time. It´s also a good tool to keep around.
