Re: Why is the PI2 camera-shy ?

Discoverer of the PI2 XENON DEATH FLASH ! I'd opt for 'XFOD' (Xenon Flash Of Death) as in 'BSOD' (Blue Screen Of Death) with Windows. That said, I use my Pies in a photo studio filled with professional (xenon) strobes. I have no Pi2 so I cannot test anything, but I do know a bit about 'flashing'. W...

Re: M12 lens adapter for camera module

I hope I can save you time, money, and headaches (and some tears). I had a LOT of those figuring the following setup out. 1st, the rPi's camera board is fantastic. Get an extended "CSI" flex cable from adafruit or somewhere... the stock cable is very short. A longer one (12" or more) will give you ...

Re: Any news on official Raspberry Display?

I read somewhere yesterday Eben said they hoped to launch it in the next quarter. They stored the components in a warehouse to first get the P1 2 launch out of the way.

Re: Barcode Generator from previous Scan project

A barcode scanner acts like a keyboard; you press the button, the scanner reads the vertical lines and outputs the letters/numbers through the USB cable just like a keyboard. One example similar to one I've used with the Pi and python: http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Handheld-CCD-Barcode-Scanner-/201279...

The want to sell their software to businesses, right? The reason (IMO) Microsoft is fighting a court order to give the US emails from their Irish datacenter is because they will lose EU businesses for their cloud.

Upgraded! It shoved my 8.1 installation into a folder, so all my software is still there. Just most of them don't run due to missing DLLs. One of them was registered to me as well, so that's going to be hard to get another copy. I like the idea of the start menu becoming small again Much neater. Th...

Re: Permanently turn AWB off

I think I've got some good news for you. A dodgy hack from a customer branch had made it onto the Pi code branch. It was always triggering a full statistics pass through the ISP on capture, and that deliberately recalculates AWB, AGC, etc. Reverting that hack and things look much better based on a ...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

The minimum you need is this pasted somewhere in your page:

Code: Select all

  <script src="script_min.js"></script>
  <img id="mjpeg_dest">
  <script>setTimeout('init();', 100);</script>
You'll also need the files script_min.js and FIFO in the folder.
