Re: [TCML] top load and photography
I've had a $50,000 DigiMax camera lose its viewfinder and whatever else
close to a working coil.
Only temporary though.
I ground my tripod. You are using a tripod for all your Tesla shots, aren't
you?. This may stop things like small discharges from you when you touch the
shoot button for example.
For my skycam setup where the camera might be close enough to get strikes, I
had a grill around the lens to avoid obstructing the flash, metering and
remote switching and to provide some HV/RF protection. It was grounded to
the camera chassis and there was aluminised paper to complete the cage.
Generally, if it is safe for me it is safe for the camera.
BTW, I do sing the praises of a digital SLR. I wouldn't have been able to
do a lot of my shots in long exposure, low light, fixed focus and with
separate flash and remote controlled, without it. It has really made the
pics on my site far better. I never "digicam" these days. Consider a cheap
one or second hand as an real asset to coiling

digital (around 1+ meg) that I could use. More than enough for the 'net.
