https://wiki.apertus.org/images/6/66/20140916091611-axiom-beta-size01.png is it possible to get the same unbrako screws on the lens mount too? ideally there should be one tool for all screws, slotted into the camera somewhere
06:21
comradekingu
atleast thats a pleasant thought. I agree hexnuts is pretty, but if it could be done down to the pcb level i think phillips all over might be something to consider
06:22
comradekingu
that being said, i think its too easy to strip phillips screws with a supplied tool, since you wont get enough momentum on a short screwdriver
06:24
comradekingu
torq might be something that ticks all boxen. with hex there is a difference between metric and imperial that some people arent aware of, which leads to possible stripping, not so with torx

PhilCee
good morning folks.. hope you had a nice one yet..
09:38
PhilCee
followed the irc logs the last weeks, and even if i agree with troy about need of a standard distance from cam base to the lens mount
09:40
PhilCee
i do not about size of the beta - if i want a standard eng cam hooked on my shoulder i'd wait for the gamma -- or get myself an bmc ursa if i dont care the semi closed concept..
09:41
comradekingu
So you want small and troy wants something bigger?
09:41
PhilCee
but to shoot on the same sensor with a min. size will be one of the standalone arguments for our beta - image a 4k 60p (if not one day 180p
09:42
PhilCee
i like the size as hidden cam on dokumentations..
09:43
PhilCee
and can easily let it grow by rigging it with a shoulder pad and an idx battery block on rails
09:43
comradekingu
its a little bit hard to make the hidden argument, and bigger is not due to heft i imagine
09:44
comradekingu
But the current "photo" style body does look very sweet for what it is
09:45
PhilCee
to any real journalist it wont comrade, right now thats a quality you can not buy at this size..
09:46
comradekingu
not sure i follow, i see how the photo style body puts it in many more use-cases, i agree that is the best one
09:46
comradekingu
what is the other option?
09:47
comradekingu
https://wiki.apertus.org/images/6/66/20140916091611-axiom-beta-size01.png looks very good, apart from the top mounted fan
09:48
PhilCee
troy is right, for comfortable cinematic work, or ENG-Shoulder-Shootings, it can have a different form factor, but you will archive this easily with rig - troy talked a lot about the usability - thats true about measurements, but to me: not about size
09:49
PhilCee
and ye, hell yeah, i allready fell in love to the tiny case ;)
09:49
PhilCee
*yes
09:50
comradekingu
the only alternative case i saw was proposed as just that, not as a replacement for the standard
09:51
comradekingu
I think the main issue is inbuilt rails, but cant you have those on the rig? Are they too far away from the sensor then?
09:53
comradekingu
philippej: blue text on top of https://axiom.apertus.org/index.php?site=donate outdated
09:53
PhilCee
dont let us build them in, there is no need for - just let us find the right distance for the base, then ill easily mount it on a railed rig
09:54
comradekingu
maybe thats what the rod topic on the wiki was about
09:54
comradekingu
are they called rods?
09:54
PhilCee
yeah..
09:57
PhilCee
till today while on investigative work, you almost allways loose picture quality if you have to shoot undercover - or rip off your budget (or go on gopro 4 fisheye - not allways a choice).. to bridge that with the beta would be a nice side benefit
09:59
comradekingu
moved rods to design hardware, im doing a new initiative for getting a overview on the wiki https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php?title=NewMain_Page
09:59
PhilCee
i saw comrade, nice work you're doing
10:00
comradekingu
PhilCee: yes, and a axiom beta would be better even if both were gopro size, so it is a stride into better territory, albeit not a perfect fit
10:01
lab-bot
philippej created T150: Research ways to make connectors more robust and avoid pcb issues. http://lab.apertus.org/T150
10:01
PhilCee
thats it comrade, lets try not to loose it ;)
10:02
comradekingu
PhilCee: i made https://www.apertus.org/home-wip too, if you have access you can see the latest revision, what do you think?

comradekingu
how about calling the hardware category projects, the put opencine at the bottom there
10:06
PhilCee
to me its great king - allready loved it on first sight, describes exactly what makes apertus different ;) beside the size .. ;p
10:08
comradekingu
the home-wip? The images arent very high-fi yet, thats something to fix
10:09
PhilCee
no, not the picture size, tried to joke about my point about betas enclosure size ;)
10:10
PhilCee
irony is hard on irc ;)
10:15
comradekingu
aaaaah. The site is meant to represent the whole apertus community, so hopefully more eyeballs can agree on it before it is launched
10:16
comradekingu
it would be tragic if someone felt mis-represented, so i made my best effort from my point of view
10:17
comradekingu
which is also that of a semi-outsider, and i dont know all there is to know about cameras, but i hope that works in my favour, because the site can be understood by the un-initiated too
10:18
PhilCee
we'll see, but i dont think so. as mentioned i had a review of the logs here, and it describes pretty exact what if read by all contributors here, i think.
10:19
PhilCee
* i've read

hello !
18:10
troy_s
comradekingu: Sad to see folks misinterpreting the logs somewhat.
18:12
troy_s
Bottom line is that the design of the camera housing has much more to do with ecosystem / participant than it does about the perception of existing on an island. In truth, a camera is actually a _small_ portion of shooting.
18:13
troy_s
Ultimatley though, it comes down to a design vision anchored on a very specific audience.

Might be a good idea to write down a proposal somewhere, troy_s ? From experience, drafts are often (always?) the base for further works
18:26
troy_s
Not really a proposal. At all.
18:26
troy_s
Otherwise I would bother.
18:27
comradekingu
i think everyone is on the same page now
18:27
comradekingu
Must sleep now, goodnight all
18:27
troy_s
It's tricky stuff.
18:27
troy_s
Night.
18:27
philippej
reread the logs
18:31
philippej
I think we are not talking about the same thing, please disregard my last comment :-)
18:31
troy_s
LOL
18:32
troy_s
What were you talking about (or conversely what did you think I was?)
18:32
philippej
basically, enclosure and camera size
18:33
troy_s
yes. That's what we were talking about.
18:33
philippej
haha :-)
18:34
philippej
we curently probably lack tools that confirm we are on the same page
18:34
philippej
that, or we have too many tools
18:34
troy_s
Mental linking.
18:34
troy_s
Yes.
18:34
troy_s
I'm often a believer of the latter.
18:34
troy_s
:)
18:34
troy_s
As you probably know.
18:35
philippej
:-)
18:35
troy_s
(Sort of a proponent of "use Foo until you have outgrown it in measurable and quantifiable ways")
18:35
troy_s
Phabricator is great for example, but now we have the wonderful lack of synchronicity with the Wiki
18:35
troy_s
and the typical Wiki-itus of "Hello. Dump crap here."
18:36
philippej
I wanted to push the use of phabricator built in wiki, but will people accept it ...
18:36
troy_s
Which is sort of a strange, disordered, garbage-dump of random thoughts.
18:38
philippej
if we'd use the phabricator wiki, it would be synced to each project (and tasks, and people and mocks and files)
18:38
philippej
but one thing at a time
18:38
troy_s
Oh.
18:39
troy_s
Didn't know that.
18:39
troy_s
That's interesting.
18:40
philippej
where you just type Txx to link to tasks
18:40
troy_s
That's like Fxxx?
18:40
troy_s
Txxx is the task things. Fxxx is the file things.
18:40
troy_s
Is there a Wxxx?
18:41
philippej
you can at leastl ink to pages using wiki syntax [[page_name]]
18:41
philippej
W is for workboards
18:44
troy_s
WTF is a workboard?
18:44
philippej
It's a way to organize tasks in a project. Here is an example : http://lab.apertus.org/project/board/4/
18:55
troy_s
philippej: So it's a bundle of tasks (and files?)
18:56
philippej
I guess, we just tried it lightly
18:57
philippej
They are working on a roadmap application : https://secure.phabricator.com/T6513
18:57
troy_s
The bundling is quite slick.
18:59
troy_s
Soooooo confused about trigger port.
18:59
troy_s
Makes zero sense to me.
18:59
philippej
I guess it's just a proposal ?
18:59
troy_s
Dunno.
18:59
troy_s
It's listed there.
18:59
troy_s
Hard to know what is implemented / considered and what is crap thrown at wall from behind bars.
19:00
troy_s
I see priorities I guess.
19:00
philippej
wishlist
19:00
troy_s
Wish those had those nice colored tag look
19:00

you can ask for it on their own phabricator install, they really listen

actually they have those nice colored tags already

wishlist is blue

the "warmer" the color gets the higher the priority scale
