    But if you don't have any, there are plenty of options. As long as your direct flash is off, you lose the hard drop shadows and the blingy stuff.
    If possible, you could direct your flash away from the object (upwards or something), or suppress your flash and use different light sources.

    Make a small ghetto "studio" frame from old white bedsheets or pillow covers if you really want to go all out :)

    I believe I've posted a couple how-to's in this thread. IIRC, one was mine from reviewing here at TPU and the second was another guide I found online. Search my posts for them...

    Or if you have a cupboard/wardrobe/etc. that is white, you could use that too (temporarily making it empty) combining it with a desk light. If that white is not white enough as it seems in the yellowish halogen lighting, you could lay some sheets of paper in it (making a fold in those that need to form a background).
    Examples (cell phone, so the colors and sharpness could not be much better than this):

    I was hoping for mod parts to be available, but they went the route of reinventing the TJ07.

    Is that the nickel/acetal or copper/acetal? Please let me know how that block does, as I'm looking at upgrading my block if something better comes again.

    Are you offering me yours? I'll trade you...a cookie?


    :D

    Yeha, I was thinking that the MSI Z77 MPower board and those cards plus the AIrflow pro might be a nice build. I don't have those cards though, dammit.

    i hope so, bcs i always got told SeaSonic is the best to make a psu, but i feel like hot air comming out of the back, but the fan only turns on when it needs to so, i guess SeaSonic knowns what they r doing ^^

    it's from someone on tweak.dk's forum bought it second handed but looks really good only had some screw marks on the back and this CPU 8-pin looks like someone has been hungry but luckly there is two of them ^^


    Look in the spoiler to see what i mean.

    yoinks I hope it wasn't chewed while it was in use

    actually after looking at it again I'd hazard a guess that the previous owner used pliers to pull it out and broke it as it looks to clean a damage for being chewed
