alexML: maybe the dark frame is already clipped or distorted at the bottom end of the sensor linear range?

Bertl
But even/odd delta as well as gain wouldn't be a big problem to correct for if they are constant

morning folks!
11:48
alexML
morning
11:48
alexML
Bertl: I found the answer
11:48
alexML
when I averaged the dark frame, I subtracted the black reference columns from each image
11:49
alexML
those columns have an offset between odd/even fields as well
11:49
alexML
but - the value is different
11:49
alexML
so, ignoring those black columns fixed it
11:51
Bertl
ah, excellent
11:52
Bertl
now I wonder what those black columns actually contain
11:52
Bertl
in theory, they should behave identical to a photosite with the electronic shutter closed
11:53
Bertl
i.e. they should do all the precharge, store, convert cycles except for the discharge one, which would be blocked
11:54
alexML
I used them to autodetect the black level (took the median value from all of them)
11:54
alexML
(it's not yet commited)
11:54
alexML
btw, do you have any recent samples? with the latest sensor settings I only have the dark frames and the grey frames
11:56
Bertl
currently I do not even have a working Beta, only parts for testing .... but Iriger has a working camera and has taken some samples with the latest register settings
11:56
Bertl
probably best to contact him via e-mail at the moment
11:57
alexML
I'm interested in samples with black offset greater than 2000 (the color charts have it at 1900, which is too low - clipped shadows)
11:58
Bertl
the other working Beta should be back from 32c3 by now ... I presume se6astian and/or getzi has it
11:58
Bertl
but it doesn't have the "latest" register settings apllied yet
11:58
Bertl
(nevertheless, should be easy to adapt/add)
11:59
Bertl
btw, we are working hard to get you folks your Betas as soon as possible.
12:00
alexML
yay!

32c3 beta will be back in the office tomorrow
15:46
se6astian
then we will capture new color charts etc. with new register settings

http://nikonrumors.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Nikon-F-schematics.jpg good old days schematics
20:49
comradekingu
well, really an exploded view, but very nice at that
20:56
davidak
when will you start working on the interface board and power board V2?
20:57
davidak
is that planned before or after the next betas send out?
20:58
Bertl_oO
new interface board design has already started
20:58
Bertl_oO
power board V2 is definitely something for the next batch or maybe even later
20:59
Bertl_oO
(requires a lot of testing before we can replace the current power board)
20:59
davidak
and the "simple enclosure"?
20:59
jucar
left the channel
20:59
Bertl_oO
you have to check with se6astian for that
20:59
davidak
k
21:00
davidak
so if these 3 things are completed i think i would order a beta
21:01
davidak
so i have to make only software updates for some time
21:01
Bertl_oO
so be it! :)
21:03
davidak
it would be nice if you can update https://www.apertus.org/axiom-beta-roadmap daily if that doesn't prevent you from working on important things.
21:03
davidak
like interface board -> started
21:05
davidak
i'm not sure what recorder i will buy but i made some research already
21:05
Bertl_oO
se6astian maintains this overview, but I will keep him informed
21:06
davidak
should i have one that can actual record 4K60p or will that not be possible in the next time?
21:06
Bertl_oO
well, 4k60p is not 4k60p :)
21:07
Bertl_oO
i.e. depends on the compression and color encoding
21:07
davidak
(and i think my computer is not able to edit that :D)
21:08
Bertl_oO
we can currently do (with the "normal" HDMI modules) slightly over 1080p60 444 (i.e. 3 channels, 8bit)
21:08
davidak
else this looks like a good device and is cheap here https://www.teltec.de/index.php?cl=details&cnid=92&anid=12248828-0&listtype=list&&sid=e84e2e85cf057e31517f3f5c7ce8c3de
21:10
davidak
but i think i can't record in 720p120 on such devices
21:10
davidak
that would be interesting for me
21:11
davidak
my iPhone actual can :P
21:11
Bertl_oO
that's the beauty of FOSS/OH and in this case the AXIOM
21:11
Bertl_oO
even if the recorder doesn't support p120, you can record it
21:11
davidak
but how long?
21:12
Bertl_oO
all you need to do is rearrange the data to produce a format the recorder can capture
21:12
davidak
ah ok
21:12
Bertl_oO
simplest example, split 1080p60 in 4 parts
21:12
Bertl_oO
and you get 540p240
21:13
davidak
i understand
21:15
Bertl_oO
granted 720p120 is a little trickier to arrange
21:19
davidak
would you consider a 1080p30 recorder be a good companion for the axiom beta to use it's full potential?
21:19
Bertl_oO
no
21:20
Bertl_oO
as we have up to three HDMI outputs with 1080p60, you will be limited by the recorder
21:20
davidak
what should i get to be future proof?
21:20
Bertl_oO
doesn't mean that it won't work fine if all you want is FullHD
21:21
davidak
4K would be nice some time
21:21
Bertl_oO
the best choice would be a recorder which can do multiple 1080p60 RGB uncompressed streams
21:21
Bertl_oO
but I do not know of such a beast
21:21
davidak
:D
21:22
Bertl_oO
the second best choice is a recorder which can do 4k uncompressed/raw
21:22
davidak
it would be very expensive
21:27
davidak
maybe you can make a open hardware recorder in 4 years :)
21:27
Bertl_oO
it is very likely that we will address the recorder side in the future
21:28
davidak
do you think a recorder is hard to make?
21:28
Bertl_oO
do you think a 4k camera is hard to make? :)
21:28
davidak
i think harder than a recorder
21:30
Bertl_oO
the main problem with recording are the proprietary interfaces which have to be controlled/utilized
21:30
davidak
a recorder is just a computer and maybe a fpga for scaling that has some inputs and some outputs
21:30
davidak
like HDMI and SATA
21:30
Bertl_oO
a "computer" which handles SATA at enormous speeds
21:30
davidak
and some software of course :D
21:30
davidak
yes :D
21:36
davidak
should i add a list of possible recorders i have found to the wiki or to my own website?
21:37
Bertl_oO
IIRC, there is a wiki page for that, so it would be nice to extend that
21:37
davidak
i will look at it
21:37
Bertl_oO
https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/HDMI/SDI_Recorder_Evaluation
21:37
davidak
thanks and good night
21:37
Bertl_oO
sleep well
21:37
davidak
you too

about simpleneclosure
22:44
se6astian
a first draft version is ready
22:45
se6astian
it will be 3d printed shortly to check if the structure like this can be printed properly at all
22:45
se6astian
with support material and angles, etc.
22:45
se6astian
once we verified that or made appropriate changes to the design we will fine tune all holes/openings/etc. and print the real design
