se6astian: The concept you posted to the list would potentially allow for mounting additional storage units to record longer
08:14
dmj_nova
Overall like the concept.
08:15
dmj_nova
A little concerned that it won't be that friendly to use in default configuration
08:56
se6astian
OK I am here now
08:57
se6astian
yes in theory it would allow multiple storage units
08:57
se6astian
not sure if we can just double the bandwith of the data stream or if it could just extend record duration as you said
08:57
se6astian
what are your concerns about usage?
09:04
dmj_nova
se6astian: mainly ergonomics
09:05
dmj_nova
How this will fit with thumb+forefinger operation by feel
09:06
dmj_nova
se6astian: well, you could have both units listening on the LVDS bus, and only one records at a time.
09:07
dmj_nova
don't need double the bandwidth unless you have two sensors
09:11
dmj_nova
but I would think the data stream would need to be enough to match the sensor output regardless of the number of storage units attached

09:22
dmj_nova
wrt bandwidth: since we'll need to have enough bandwidth on the bus to store raw data from the sensor, I don't see a need in bandwidth changing anything
09:22
dmj_nova
Would just be a method to have more storage
09:23
dmj_nova
or possibly use slower drives, but I'm not as keen on that
09:23
se6astian
ad ergonomics, the hand grip is not visible in that concept
09:23
dmj_nova
one could also potentially have alternating sets of drives, so the user could swap the pair not in use while another pair is recording
09:24
se6astian
sure
09:24
dmj_nova
wrt ergonomics again: The overall shape does affect usage
09:25
dmj_nova
alternating drives -> continuous usage
09:26
dmj_nova
also, where the cabling comes out impacts usage
09:27
se6astian
true, currently all cables are extending from the right camera side
09:28
dmj_nova
which could get in the way of the wrist
09:28
dmj_nova
(depending on placement of course
09:28
se6astian
let me cover that in a more in depth concept
09:29
se6astian
so far its only partly 3d with some manual painting
09:29
dmj_nova
plus viewfinder vs display panel positioning, etc
09:44
dmj_nova
we need to try to imagine usage in a shooting environment.
