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 […]

Metastasized the return

A great title for a horror movie, unfortunately it’s reality. My latest ultrasound, MRI & CT scans show a tumour in my liver. On hearing this I looked up the 5 year survival rates for liver cancer and found that it’s 7%, not good news. However, even though the tumour is in my liver it’s […]

Camera Test updates and reflections on the difference between the Netherlands and the UK

I’ve had to pause on the camera evaluations, well, the uploading of them, not the assessment of them. I just wonder how many people will look at them in full res or even download the files to be able to judge them properly. It’s interesting the way some cameras change colour from under to over […]

Major upgrade at CML – Cinematography Mailing List

Well, its been a challenge. The last few weeks have been spent totally rebuilding CML and moving it from a sub-domain of www.gboyle.co.uk based ┬áin the UK to it’s own server based in the US. We have also added SSL and are now a secure site. The addition of our own mail servers has meant […]

Last Cancer Post

From now on this blog is back to cinematography! I saw my surgeon this morning, exactly 14 days since the operation. He showed me the Path results and they were “interesting”, he removed a section with 22 Polyps, 3 of which were malignant. The bad ones were down to the end of the rectum. The […]

Day 6

It’s six days now since my tumours were removed and my arse sealed forever. This morning the IV and the catheter were removed and a few minutes ago I. Rolled over and got to my feet. Hanging on to my physical nurse I managed to turn around, sit on a chair for a few minutes, […]
