Vieną vakarą kilo mintis pastatyti kamerą kur nors toliau su gražiais vaizdais. Prisiminiau Ventės rago ornitologinę stotį. Susiradau Internete kontaktus ir paskambinau. Vytautui idėja patiko. Pažadėjo duoti elektros ir Interneto. Praėjus keliom dienom nuvažiavom į vietą, kur pasitiko linksmas, šmaikštus, gerai nusiteikęs ir svetingas kolektyvas.
Logitech C920 is a wonderful webcam. It has good picture quality and hardware H.264 encoder. It can do real full HD streaming (1920×1080 @ 30fps). But this webcam lacks one feature – it has fixed lens which sometimes is not acceptable.
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.
