    Fuji Fuji cameras and experiments with polarization

    So, recently I got a new pair of glasses. I did not get the autodarkening this time as they didn't get that dark and the price adder was more than the rest of the glasses. I did get a set of clip-ons for these glasses. For reference all my glasses come from Zenni Optical. I've also got a set...

    Airport security, a rant.

    So, I just cleared security. With newly nuked film. Because even when I politely asked if they could check it manually I had two options, either send it thru x-ray or open the film and expose it to light because «we can’t see what’s inside».
