      Thank you note   08/24/2017

      I receive this thank you note from Peggy Warden  Mr. Stadler,  I didn’t post this under announcements, but you can if you want.  Thank you very much for sending the card, money and letting the members know about Chris’s death.  The members on Hagshouse are a special group of guys.  I knew that you all have really big hearts from past experiences when I was helping with charity auctions, etc. But I didn’t know what to say when I got a card with a $500.00 check because Chris had been inactive for a good while now.  Thank you all for the money and the kind words that were written about him on the website.  It was a great comfort for our family to read through each post.  It is just amazing that guys, most of whom I have never met in person, hundreds of miles away, reach out to help with prayers and money.  Chris and I were very thankful for being able to have come to know allot of you through e-mail and phone conversations, being part of your website and running the store.  Life without Chris is the hardest thing in life that I have ever had to do, but it sure does make it easier to bear with friends like you.  There has got to be a big meeting place reserved up in heaven where all the Hagshouse guys get together.  God bless you all!  Sincerely, Peggy Warden P.S.  Chris had signed me up with the Hagshouse member name of “Methuselah”.  As some of you may know, Methuselah was the oldest person in the Bible.  Lol!  He did have a sense of humor.

Another Fs7 Complete

7 posts in this topic

Here are some pics of a new build I just finished. Panasonic FS7, SSII board in a black Pelican 1020 case. I added a toggle switch for power, security pipe, 6AA externals, 3d camo, 3d printed snorkel and a screw in mount on the back. This one was built for someone else, but I definitely want to make one of these for myself soon. The FS7 takes amazing closeup pics.

That is an awesome build! The fs7 is probably my favorite camera for picture quality and the SSII is what makes those tiny builds possible. Great job!!

Cost to make that? Any idea on how long the batteries will last with your externals?

I'm not sure what you mean? I've seen no difference between having the hinges on top or bottom, I just prefer the hinge on top layout.

The cost really depends on how much you pay for the camera. I had about $150 in this build. This setup probably wouldn't be good for setting and leaving for 4+ months at a time because it uses AA's, but I estimate it should be able to take between 1,100-1,600 pics, depending on the battery quality, temps, and how many flash pics it takes.
