Sorry ladies, I’m currently in Amsterdam not enjoying myself. Apparently there’s this ITAR thing that wouldn’t let me bring my kids.

Anyone else that has a Skeetir-x willing to do any TTL pictures? Thanks.

It’s actually pretty hard to get TTL pics with the Skeet.
Hard to explain but the rear ocular of clip ons, UTM/T-50/Skeet/Etc, because the image appears “far”
I’ll see what I can do.

I’ll try again later tonight.

Yeah, thanks for nothing Horta- left us hanging for weeks. Those pics are enough to inform me that viewing through the device must be damn near magical.

ETA- thank you MrPlayer for taking some photos for us pleebs

That’s a damn handsome man in that last pic. If only I could be so lucky.

Thanks for covering, Playa! It is very difficult to get TTL pics through the Skeet that look remotely representative of what it looks like with the naked eye. That damn battery cover makes it nearly impossible to physically attach most eyepiece adapters. The iPotato does an admirable job, but still falls short. I ordered a $700 telescope attachment rig from B&H just for this project and it arrived while I’ve been away. Using a Canon 1Dx MKII mated to a Canon 85mm f/1.2L lens with the new “universal” camera adapter should provide the optimal quality and work with each device in the (eventually) forthcoming comparo.

I’ll be in Europe for another 12 days having a terrible time.

I was actually just talking to a friend this evening (6’5” gentleman) , saying it seems the tall guys (regardless of other attributes or, the lack there of) seem to get ladies with ease. You have that covered. ;)
I gotta work for and “play” to get em.

Lol. You just hypnotize the hunneys with your crazy eyeballs.

I can’t get the one woman I’ve had for the last 30 years to leave. Apparently she takes the “I like a challenge” thing to the extreme.

I've decided Horta and I can be friends due to him being just fucking amazing.

I'm going to shot show next year and if you're there we should hang out. @tnvc I'm gonna talk mad shit and I hope we can do lunch at a strip club together with the dudes from photonis so I can bust Ben's balls for not replying to my emails.

That’s the most accurate representation of what it looks like through the SkeetIR-X I’ve yet to see.

Now imagine looking through dual X’s and seeing that in genuine 3D.
