The following is an experiment of using High Speed Sync'ed flash on small objects.
About a week ago I finally found another possible candidate for a pocket multitool, a replacement in case anything happens to my Squirt.
The Victorinox Manager, not quite the Mini Champ which I was actually looking for. But it's not too shaby. The size is right.
And it's the Squirt's equal in thickness as well.
Of course the fact that it has a plastic shell and doesn't have a big pair of pliers means the Victorinox Manager feels much lighter than the Squirt.
Obviously they both come with a blade, almost the same length, just different errr… broadness. Let's hope I don't end up cutting myself with this one.
And of course they both come with the essential Phillips screwdriver.
Though on the Squirt it's more of a filed down normal screw driver instead of an actual cross. The Manager's Phillips screwdriver is an actual small cross.
And of course the main difference that might be the deal breaker when it comes to what to carry.
The Squirt houses a pair of pliers small yet adequate for light patch jobs when you need to twist something hard. Where as the Manager has the more commonly used scissors instead, ideal for precision cutting when a blade is unable to perform.
Being a Swiss Army Knife, the Manager has some errr… non tool like things.
Like a pair of tweezers, and a pen… which came DRY and UNUSABLE! must be because it was exposed in the display case for god knows how long! :(
One of the things that I realized is that.
I now have both a small and normal sized version tools for both Leatherman and Victorinox tools!
So.. after all that. I noticed that the shadowing is an interesting effect, albeit hard to control since I have only one flash… hmmm.. maybe I should build a lightbox next?
