    Hi Chris,
    which filter-system are you using in the video? Lee or Cokin?

    It’s a Cokin system.

    UUUh… the guy in the video proclaims that Mercedes is the “inventor” of the modern car. I guess he’s never heard of Ford.

    Hehe.. let the trans atlantic car dispute begin :)

    Alright.. Carl Benz designed his first car in 1878, Henry Ford apparently finished his first motor vehicle (the “Quadricycle”) in 1896.

    That’s at least what Wikipedia says.

    This video was great.
    The “text” notes were very informative and helpful.

    Quote Wiki: “[...] Although several other German engineers (including Gottlieb Daimler, Wilhelm Maybach, and Siegfried Marcus) were working on the problem at about the same time, Karl Benz generally is acknowledged as the inventor of the modern automobile.”
