It’s been a while since I’ve put up a video, and I always wanted to do one of me putting together a watch movement. A bit tricky, as you are of course more nervous with the camera running, and because I can’t use the microscope whilst filming (as you wouldn’t be able to see anything), so I have to do all the things I usually do under the microscope just with the optivisor.
Nevertheless, here we go:
You might notice that I cut out a bit where I put the pallet fork in – I didn’t mean to do that, but only noticed after I uploaded it to YouTube. As that took two hours, I wasn’t tempted to edit the video again!
The missing bit is here:
I tried a couple of cameras, and my Samsung Galaxy S3 did the best job. Still, I could do with the movement appearing bigger, but I couldn’t focus any closer. Next time, I might need a video camera with a decent macro function…
