Caffeine Ban by Photosbykev Caffeine Ban by Photosbykev
At my last classified medical they found I had a resting heart rate of 120+ bpm. After ECGs and shedloads of blood tests the GP thinks it might be down to too much caffeine ( I do drink alot of coffee lol) So caffeine is now banned for a fortnight and then more ECGs and bloodworks.

No more coffee, tea, chocolate !!!!!!! my life is over ;)

and my head is hurting !!! and I feel like this image for the moment.

Canon 7D and Samyang 8mm fisheye

I read that caffeine fatigue should go away after 5 days at latest. 5 days of living hell D:

Headaches are common when you're doing 'cold turkey' coming off coffee and chocolate. Peppermint and Nettle teas are very nice if you fancy trying those as a substitute :)

Good quality dark chocolate is actually good for your heart.

Interesting that they even said no chocolate. Maybe they will let you get away with a cinnamon herb tea?

Well, I was thinking more of a way around the chocolate and tea part of the ban... My mom used to even put a stick of cinnamon bark and a clove or two in a tall mug, poured boiling water in and let it steep like tea... It was full of flavor at least. :)

I don't know how high resoltion you've got on your screnn but try to scroll the this page so that your nose was at the bottom edge of screen... you'll see THE FACE lol :D

That's interesting that having such advanced gear you use Samyang lens - I heard only good things about this korean fisheye and I understand you can confirm those reports?

The Samyang is extrememly good value for money and is the only fisheye that gives full coverage on the cropped sensors. I've played in the past with Canon FD mount fisheyes but they produce circular images rather than the full frame.

Having hi-res camera ( 18mpix! ) why not using circular fisheye and cropping later on? I was using Sigma 8/3.5 on Canon 5D ( got it for my master thesis about hemispherical photography :D ) and then I was cropping for full coverage - results were pretty cool ( see in my gallery ;P ). The same was with Peleng 8/3.5 that I used with Minolta 7D. But I assume you don't like cropping :D

for general photography I prefer to crop in-camera so I capture the maximum detail.

The panoramas are purely a novelty for me and yes I could use a circular fisheye and throw away the overlaps as most panoramas are relatively low resolution.

Using the Samyang gives me a ultra wide full frame image that is usable on its own without the extreme distortion of the circular fisheye. With only a few more frames in a sequence I can put a decent pano together 6 around 1 up and 1 down would be the minimum for a full pano

:lol: That looks something like my last caffeine withdrawal!
Try switching to something else, like chocolate, cheesesticks, Doritos... those my fallback addictions when I can't get enough coffee.

Then we'll just have to find something else that you crave... another addiction I have is lasagna.
I know lasagna doesn't have caffeine!

Caffeine withdrawls will definitely give you a headache. I've been trying to slowly wean myself to consuming less of it. I fill my coffee cup with mostly decaf and then throw in a splash of the "leaded" stuff.

I can't drink coffee even in the morning as it makes me nervous and gives me insomnia. Tea is the same but I can drink cocoa or eat chocolate. I think there is less caffeine in it.
I hope so for you. :)
As for the headache I think it takes just a few days to get disintoxicated.
