I had an old Russian lens (MTO-500) laying around for a long time. Tried using it on DSLR, but because of lack of image quality I refused this idea. Today I mounted webcam on it. Because of smaller image sensor magnification is much larger in this conjunction.
Sometimes it’s overkill to use computer with 200W power consumption for 24/7 to do small task like upload picture from webcam to Dropbox every minute. In this article I will describe how save a lot of Watts and to have Carambola on Cloud!
As soon as I received my GoPro camera, I knew it needs a lens cap. I knew there were plenty of options to buy, but a) I was not eager to wait and b) I could manufacture it by myself. So, lets go ahead and manufacture it.
Išpopuliarėjus mažiem bepiločiam R/C lėktuvam atsirado ir daug fotografuojančių iš oro. Nors į tokias nuotraukas ir šiaip malonu pažiūrėti, tačiau iš jų galima gauti ir naudos. Suradus bendrus taškus kiekvienai nuotraukai, galima gauti ortofoto nuotrauką pririštą prie koordinačių, aukščių žemėlapį (DEM – Digital Elevation Map) bei pilną 3D modelį.
Starting new section in my blog about CNC machining. There will be notes about machining different parts from various materials. Today I will describe what speeds and feeds I am using to cut 2mm Acrylic (Plexiglas).
If you were interested in first Carambola based rover, you will love this one. First one was just how to connect and setup everything. This one is actualy usable and fun to use. Purpose of this rover is to replace crappy toy cars and to have more fun. Not fogetting ability to learn and build something new! It even has an Android application.
I took my camera out of a bag, where it spent long time, and connected to computer. So what, you say? I connected it far away from computer over WiFi with full controls enabled (even live view and focus). I used Canon 40D DSLR camera with original software, but you can use any camera with any supported software (at least I hope so).
