I'm hoping this will be a bit harder than the others I have posted.


This one was taken with a reversed 50mm lens.

What I'll do is post a picture of an object using a reversed lens and let you try and guess what it is. If you don't guess correctly by the second day I will post another picture which may or may not have been taken with a reversed lens. If it is a small object then not using a reversed lens could show the entire thing. :lol: On the third day if you still don't know I will post the object in its entirety and hope you know what it is.

There is no point checking my photobucket account for the other images, they're not uploaded.

If a reversed lens is used it will be a 50mm lens mounted backwards on a zoom which goes up to 114mm (film equivalent). Photos aren't taken with quality in mind, only function. I won't necessarily say if someone has got it right as soon as I see that someone has. I may leave it a while to see what other people think it is.

I am guessing either a calculator keyboard (HP-41C ??) or a tv remote.

So I've finally found a difficult one? :lol:

No-one is right yet, here's number two.


Taken with a reversed 50mm lens.

No more guesses? I'll tell you what it is tonight. I'll give you some hints before I do though.

Almost all of the users here use a variant of this.
Some of those users will use this "item".
It isn't a photography item and is used a lot with other external devices.

That last one could have given it away.

I was going to guess that you tore apart your computer and it was part of the motherboard or some other circuit board, but not sure...

Hrmm...
I don't see how the first one is related to the second...
The second one is definately the end of a USB cable.

agree with mactek, and think the #1 pic came from a destroyed cable, or one used in the first age of USB

The second photo could be a USB connector but I am not totally convinced. I was just looking at the camera cable for my Minolta S414 and although the computer end is very similar to the photo, it is not exactly the same. Granted, there may be slight manufacturing differences between connectors and this could account for what I am seeing.

As for the first photo, those two textured vertical "columns" appear to be part of a molded case. The white "things" could either be buttons or pins in a connector or plug. The thing I can identify is that horizontal divider between the "pins". I am thinking power strip of some kind. I agree with mactek that the second photo appears to be totally unrelated to the first.

Ferny, I am taking this as a challenge to come up with something even you can identify! :blah:
