3 years on

It’s 3 years now since I was told I had 9 months to live. I’ve had my arse removed, a chunk of my liver removed and half a lung went this year. The thing is that I’m doing well, as fit and healthy as I’ve ever been for a very long time. I cycled 40K […]

I get knocked down, but…

It’s been a long time since my last post and that’s because I’ve been battling with my third bout of cancer.It was harder this time, for a number of reasons. The main one being that the last one, a third of my liver removed, was so easy.This time there were a few delays, bad timing, […]

Why I no longer use YouTube

I have removed all my material from Youtube with the exception of a small showreel and a message to go to Vimeo. Why? because I have got totally fed up with Google’s, hmm better be careful here lawyers may read this 🙂 OK, when I used Adsense the stats for visits that Google reported were […]

An annual event

It seems like this is becoming an annual event for me 🙁 Even though my blood scans show completely clear CT scans have shown a tumour in my right lung. My doctors think that this is simply the tumour that they thought they had killed with microwaves last year wasn’t totally killed off. So, for […]

New camera tests and what people use to look at them

I uploaded my new camera tests a couple of days ago and looking at the stats I can’t help but me puzzled. The tests are at https://www.cmltests.net and for the first time I’ve uploaded the original raw files from the cameras as well as 4K h264 versions. I make it very clear that these are very large […]

We’ve found a small…

The words I dread hearing, “we’ve found a small lesion in your lung” I’d just had a scan that involved loading me with radioactive sugar after which I had to lie absolutely still, no twitching of fingers and toes! until it had been processed by my body. Apparently any muscle movement would use up the […]

CameraImage

It was my first visit to CameraImage this year in the past commercials have made it impossible to attend. I now wish that I’d turned down some of those jobs so that I could attend! It was an amazing meeting of cinematographers, I met people I hadn’t seen for 30 years and I also made […]

Some days are better than others

I’m currently comparing the BMD MP and the C200 in detail, they’re very different cameras in lots of way and they both produce great images. I’ll be posting a detailed review of them on CML in a month or so. They are very similar on paper but in real life just so different. I had […]

Not so different from an OB crew!

Get in, get the pictures and the job done and get out leaving a bit of a mess behind! Not too bad, 7 holes this time but in a few months there’ll be barely a trace. 2 of the scars from the last Laparoscopy are visible in that shot, I know where to look, and […]
