Tom O'Brien  Photo Engineer for @NatGeo I design and build custom photography equipment for the great photographers of National Geographic. DC/MD Questions welcome

I've had out many of our older Nikon camera bodies for a historical camera time line exhibit that the National Geographic Museum is currently assembling. Here are just a few.

In the @natgeo #photoengineering shop I have many relics of previous generations of #camera systems such as this lovely #nikon #F4 system diagram.
Stay tuned for weekly glimpses into the history and future of this department.

Recently for @jimmy_chin & @alexhonnold I designed and built three long range (2500'+) camera triggering systems with long range video down link. These were used to start/stop video on El Capitan in Yosemite CA. (For scale the green at the top of the image are trees). It was a privilege to get to aide documenting Alex's historic climb!

Just some long distance #camera trigger testing from yesterday for @natgeo Got to about 2000' feet with an unamplified signal with a yagi antenna.

Thanks @nicholaskarlin for all the help running around with with antennae!

The items I find in my large stock room @natgeo never ceases to amaze​ me. Tonight's find, a ballistic ('bulletproof') vest. Level IIIa

Trying my hand at #Aluminum #MIG #welding for the first time here @natgeo
It's very different from welding mild steel. Very fast, very hot and very sparky!

When you are having a stressful day just go practice some MIG welding. The act of welding and the smell brings me back to college when I was doing a fair amount of welding in theater tech and engineering school.

Here @natgeo I'm taking some time to work on cleaning and getting working a vintage 70mm Round Shot (Panoscope) camera. (Looking through my bench magnifying lamp) This camera uses large 70mm film (same stuff #IMAX uses) to take larger 360 panoramic shots by rotating the head. This Swiss made beauty is in great condition and it's my favorite vintage find since being on the job. The #engineering of this camera is simply remarkable! She weighs in at a whopping 6.2 kg (13.6 pounds); you need quiet a beefy #tripod for this camera! If anyone has more information on these cameras or has 70mm film they don't want let me know. #photoengineer #photoengineering #roundshot #panorma #panoramic #vintagecamera #camera #nationalgeographic #mechanicalengineering #ilovemyjob #vintage #tbt
