If the DIY Fibre Optic Ring Flash we wrote about last month required too many specialist parts for your taste, check out this much simpler remix. The construction is easy and done with common household items. The blog entry itself isn't in English, but the abundant photos speak for themselves. To build this ring flash, you'll need some pretty easy-to-find components. The body of the ring flash is built out of a plastic food container, which looks pretty similar to the plastic takeout containers my local Chinese take-out spot uses. From there the project follows the path of DIY greatness, requiring white card stock, tinfoil, and, of course, duct tape. While the end result don't have the fancier features of a commercial flash ring, it does get the job done for casual use and experimentation. DIY Ring Flash
Firefox only (Windows/Mac/Linux): View Exif data for photos you're viewing in Firefox—like camera make, model, exposure, and other technical details—with the FxIF Firefox extension. Once installed, right-click any image (from the looks of things it needs to be the original image—not thumbnailed, for example) and click Properties. In addition to Firefox's default set of image properties, FxIF adds the Exif data as well. On the other hand, if you're only interested in the Exif data for Flickr pics, check out the Flickr EXIF Decorator Greasemonkey script. FxIF is free, works wherever Firefox does.
