Amateur Yo-Yo Photography


Nice. The glide is wonderful


Wow Erik, your photos just keep getting better. Lighting and focus looks fantastic. I was very impressed with my Glide. I feel so bad that it took me so long to try one. It’s a great yo-yo.

Other than the edges of the Chief getting cut off in the third picture, I like them a lot! But that’s just my OCD kicking in…

^ Nice photos, and very pretty shade of red on the Summit. The Sturm Panzer photo did not appear for me though. If you have time to re-post the link, I’d like to see that one.

That actually looks really nice with the red ULs, coming from a guy who’s not a big fan of black yos


My camera broke, and I bought a new one today. I had to search this thread to remember when I bought the old one. It looks like it lasted me just over a year and a half. Even if I got that protection plan, they would give me the next model up, which I wouldn’t think was that great.

The funny thing is, I got these lines on the LCD screen, and it was a sign that the camera was on it’s way out. Eventually there was a popping sound, I smelled something that seemed like it was burning, and I just didn’t want it near my face anymore. I’ve never seen a camera blow up or anything, but I don’t want to find out if it can happen either. The good thing is, I bought a very well upgraded version of it, and I can use the same size battery, so I have a total of three now.


I would hesitate to use the old battery. The burning and so forth can only happen with energy, which comes from the battery… so either the circuitry in the camera had something happen to cause it to handle the electricity incorrectly, or the battery is not delivering the specced voltage and amperage. You could test the battery if you had the right meter, I suppose. But if you don’t, it’s a crap shoot whether the camera was at fault or the battery was.

Cool that you got an upgrade, though! Your photos are already excellent.


^ Thanks a lot. I have a battery tester, and lucked out having so many gadgets around the house. I have one that touches little sharp thingies against the connectors. The battery is still useful. I’m not missing the old camera, which is a good sign.


I have the same camera! :smiley:

The camera I use looks pretty similar to that as well but TA got a newer version of it

edit: might as well post some of my old photos too


Usually don’t bring around my camera cause it’s too bulky. Still trying to look for an x100s. So now, iphone…

^ Nice results with the phone, and such a pretty splash on the throw too. Neat!


Thank you! I just had to flip it around lol.
