Re: OV5647 vs 400 grit, or: how to remove the IR filter

Great to see someone trying this before me. This is awesome! before I go in with a scalpel or sand paper, I'd like to know if poing's suggestion might work-- could it be pulled out from the lens end with a dab of glue? does it look like the filter is flexible at all, or is it glass? how good is the...

Re: OV5647 vs 400 grit, or: how to remove the IR filter

Here it is. Sorry for the quality, hands were shaking. As you can see, when connector at the bottom, there are two caps on the right just next to the edge. It is easy to damage them so I would suggest trying to cut only on the left/top/bottom. Top and bottom caps are not as close as right one. http:...

I did the same on Friday. Assembled it back and adjusted focus. Made some pictures in pretty dark room and pictures were brighter than with IR filter. But I used lamp to illuminate the room rather than IR LEDs, didn't have them in my hands at that time. Then I noticed one small spot and decided to ...

Re: help! problem with dyndns server

You need to forward in your router "HTTP Server" (port 80) to IP address of your RPi, or to RPi as a name on your network. Most likely you have put IP address of your router which is usually 192.168.1.254 In this case I would assign fixed IP address for your RPi. You can do it either in your RPi or ...

Re: Can't install Samba on Raspbian

Unfortunately system is on HDD and few things running so I decided not to do fresh install. Better to find different solution for my task - will share files via miniDLNA, they are media files which is good. I use only 800MHz overclock. Thanks for suggestions.

Re: Motion detection + live stream ?

If you install "motion" then you will have that functionality apart from 30fps. It is correct actually for the USB camera. If you wait a month or so for the camera on which Foundation works at the moment then you will be able to have 30fps.
