The iPad Pro as main computer for programming

Definitively an interesting way to solve his problems with carrying the whole laptop. To me having having a full laptop is more important than that mobility, this because the multitask capability of the laptop vs the “one or two” apps approach in the iPad.

Still a nice way to work when you don’t have your laptop near to you.

Replacing the auto focus flex of a Canon 18-55 IS lens

A couple of days ago I got the flex for the focus mechanism in my 18-55 camera lens, but in my lack of experience I didn’t do a god job, the focus moved, and the camera tried to focus (it really tries) but the image remained blurry. So I had to put the flex in place again, the first attempt was not perfect. In order to do this. Here some pictures.

Fixing the camera lens

I have a problem with my camera, there’s a small cable that is flexible and helps to get the autofocus working, the problem is that with the time and usage the flex got broken, and then autofocus stop working.

I ask a friend that is very skilled soldering stuff, he usually repair broken motherboards, I asked if he could join the flex, he told me that he can, he would charge $300MXN (about $16.5 USD) to do the job. I found in mercadolibre (similar to eBay) the same flex I needed for $150 (about $8.3USD). So, I bought one and my goal was trying to fix the lens by myself. read more
