Damn! Kenom puts the laser down and takes off the rain gear and tin foil helmet.
damn that sucks... does it only go in through the top where the laser pointer comes out? or is there other openings too? if so, couldnt you just do what that one guy did? i cant find the topic now, but im sure youve seen it. he has a white cap over his with some sort of plastic between it. the white cap opens and closesSenKat said:It can handle NO RAIN !!!! You have to put it in a plastic zipper type bag, and make it completely waterprrof otherwise your laser will DIE ! OMG !!! EEEEK ! ;D
Seriously - treat it like it is made of sugar - if it gets wet, it will melt ! If any water gets inside it, it will most likely be history. I stand under the cover of my garage to take lots of outside photos, so there is no chance of a sudden downpour ruining my babies !
ok thanks, i wont risk anything then. how do u put a laser in a plastic bag without it burning the bag?SenKat said:Taks a second and think about this - they are not made to be waterproof - so, any place on the laser itself that is not solid metal is going to give water the opportunity to enter the laser - the button, the aperature, the end cap or center seam - any place that there is a "joint" in the body- big time danger of entry !
i dont understand how doesnt it burn the bag if its so close, but it can light a match lolSenKat said:Oh - it won't burn the bag, unless you let hte laser overheat....as long as you are using a clear baggie, you're golden !
thanks, that makes sense. before all i was hearing was that "it works" and "doesnt burn" but i wasnt sure why lolKenom said:If you put it in a clear bag then the light will shine through it like it will a peice of glass. Light needs to be absorbed by teh object in order to heat up and burn. Since the bag has no color it will not absorb any of the laser radioation or at least not enough to burn.
