Wheel Balancing Costs
- A procedure that ensures that the weight of the wheel is distributed evenly to improve performance and cut tire wear. Static balancing distributes the weight of the wheel evenly around the axle or Spindle and is done with the wheels off the vehicle.
- The method of reducing the hammer blow caused by the action of the pistons driving the cranks as the crank approaches bottom dead centre. Driving wheels had weights fitted into their rims to act as a counter balance. (PRC)

The 2009-2014 Outlook for Automotive Wheel Balancing Equipment Excluding Hand Tools in the United States
This econometric study covers the latent demand outlook for automotive wheel balancing equipment excluding hand tools across the states and cities of the United States. Latent demand (in millions of U.S. dollars), or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.) estimates are given across some 10,500 cities in the United States. For each city in question, the percent share the city is of it's state and of the United States is reported. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a city vis-a-vis others. This statistical approach can prove very useful to distribution and/or sales force strategies. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each state and city, latent demand estimates are created for automotive wheel balancing equipment excluding hand tools. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.
busb's HDR Notes (Image: Mouser the sand-filled cat)
Last edit: 06/09/2009 New version (3.2.2) of Photomatix now available & is substantially different to v3.1.x. I am slowly editing these notes to account for these changes as I use it more. It has a new function called Exposure Fusion that IMO is much better than Blending mode. One observation worth mentioning is that I've compared an image made with v3.2.0 with v3.1.3 using identical settings including colour space, subtracted the two & found that a small area of highlights to be different. I provisionally put this down to that v3.2 has less range in the Highlights Smoothness control therefore finer increments which is good. Saved results resemble what's seen in Photomatix edit mode far more closely - an extremely good thing! Although I feel that Photomatix is a bit clunky to use at times regarding changing settings (such as not being able to use my mouse scroll wheel to alter the sliders), it gets better with every major iteration. The why I’ve spent hours toiling in various darkrooms where the problem of dynamic range repeatedly reared its head. I’ve used pieces of card between the enlarging lens & paper to hold back foregrounds so that there would be detail in both the sky & whatever was below it. With digital, this issue is worse but there are various ways of reducing the problem. I've been using PaintShopPro for over 10 years. It was by accident that I discovered that its Clarify filter (Local Contrast enhancement) brought out shadow detail without flattening the highlights. However, repeated use will reduce saturation & adds artefacts such as banding & contouring if not used with care. It was shortly after joining flickr back in Oct 2006 that I discovered HDR & tone-mapping. HDR/Tone-mapping is not unlike the Clarify filter in that all these methods seek to squash the vastly larger dynamic range (the ratio of darkest to lightest) our eyes see onto paper or be viewable on most computer screens. The result will be images that have detail throughout a wider tonal range (or more accurately, luminance.) These methods adjust the Local Contrast of a picture, where the level of equally bright pixels will be varied according to the surrounding ones, differently. Varying the Brightness & Contrast as many of us have done, will only change the level of pixels equally throughout an image whatever the value of surround ones - these are Global filters. The what 16bit High Dynamic Range image files show a much larger tonal range than can be printed or displayed on most monitors. Tone mapping is one means of squashing down this extra range back to be viewable but with the Local contrast equally distributed over this smaller range. The results can look perfectly natural or they can look outlandish according to the required outcome or maturity of the user! The how - taking HDR Any camera that has full manual control or Aperture Priority mode where the exposure compensation can be adjusted is fine for HDR. Being able to shoot sequences from -4 to +2 stops in 2 stop steps would be my preferred option. The faster the camera can save these images, the better. Generally, the best camera for HDR is going to be a DSLR the can auto-bracket (AEB) from -2 to +2 steps or more. Such a camera will make hand holding the shots viable for some out-door shots. Because I use a Compact (Canon PowerShot G10), I use a tripod out of necessity rather than by choice but slow shutter speeds will often dictate that one is used anyhow. It is probably best to not use Auto White Balance (AWB) & some would suggest using manual focus & switching off Image Stabilisation. Shutter Priority isn’t the best option because the Depth of Field should be the same throughout the sequence. Some people use RAW for HDR. The more bits available, the greater the tonal range that can be covered. There are many examples of HDR from single RAW files on flickr which are often referred to as Pseudo HDR. A potential problem with shooting HDR sequences in RAW mode will be the time delay storing the images between shots. It’s a good idea to re-format your storage card beforehand whichever file format used. Many shoot at 1 stop intervals or less but I generally stick to 2 (as HDRsoft recommend). I have used anything from 6 to single exposures with great success. Using many smaller & more steps doesn’t always gain any advantages & can cause ghosting. The number of frames, their exposure spacing & file type will depend on experience, subject matter, movement & lighting. Using a tripod as I do, allows for slow shutter speeds but can still cause severe problems with moving objects such as people, vehicles or even clouds! I’ve recently started using RAW as well as jpg at the highest resolution & minimum compression. I have had more than satisfactory results from 2 frames (even single jpg files – more on those later.)

Blackpool illuminations and tower. Explore Frontpage
Wow thanks so much for the response to the last image, I wasn’t so sure, but then I never am, I’ll try to get round to all! So the little one is potty training at the moment... well actually she is great, but we’ve been taking a potty round with us, and we’re half way down the 6 miles of lights that make the Blackpool illuminations and she wants the potty, I took her off into the darkness at the side of the road that is used for staging events, out of the way and all that, she does her thing and I find this bin, with no tripod it worked nicely balancing the camera on top, to get a nice crisp small aperture shot with the 50mm lens. In view you can see a nice strip of the illuminations leading to or past the tower and central pier. •The Blackpool Illuminations cost ?2.4 million to stage, with the equipment valued at ?10 million. •The Lights are expected to attract in excess of 3.5 million visitors to Blackpool, who will spend more than ?275 million while visiting the resort during the Lights. •The Blackpool Illuminations will shine non-stop for 66 nights and stretches almost six miles. •Forty-five staff, which include Artists, Electricians, Joiners Mechanics, Painters and Engineers, work all year round to ensure the displays are ready on time. •Altogether 65,000 staff hours are used on maintenance, preparation, erection, operation and - finally - dismantling the features, fixtures and fittings. As always thanks for viewing, comments, faves and constructive crit. always very welcome, graphics not so much Press L to view in Lightbox Have a great weekend!

This report was created for global strategic planners who cannot be content with traditional methods of segmenting world markets. With the advent of a "borderless world", cities become a more important criteria in prioritizing markets, as opposed to regions, continents, or countries. This report covers the top 2000 cities in over 200 countries. It does so by reporting the estimated market size (in terms of latent demand) for each major city of the world. It then ranks these cities and reports them in terms of their size as a percent of the country where they are located, their geographic region (e.g. Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, North America, Latin America), and the total world market.
In performing various economic analyses for its clients, I have been occasionally asked to investigate the market potential for various products and services across cities. The purpose of the studies is to understand the density of demand within a country and the extent to which a city might be used as a point of distribution within its region. From an economic perspective, however, a city does not represent a population within rigid geographical boundaries. To an economist or strategic planner, a city represents an area of dominant influence over markets in adjacent areas. This influence varies from one industry to another, but also from one period of time to another.
In what follows, I summarize the economic potential for the world's major cities for "automotive wheel balancing equipment excluding hand tools" for the year 2009. The goal of this report is to report my findings on the real economic potential, or what an economist calls the latent demand, represented by a city when defined as an area of dominant influence. The reader needs to realize that latent demand may or may not represent real sales.
