troy_s: I presume you mean 'Lemo' connectors (push-pull circular connectors), yes?
01:24
Bertl
note that LEMO is a manufacturer name, i.e. they produce a number of different, mostly proprietary connectors for different applications. Usually they cost a lot and the multi pin are not designed/suited for coax cables, which would be required for the SDI outputs
01:25
Bertl
there are BNC like connectors from LEMO as well (i.e. single core, coax), but I doubt they provide any advantage over (mini) BNC

evening

FergusL
Lemo is a standard for many things
01:53
FergusL
in the camera field
01:54
troy_s
Bertl: Yes Lemo, and all I think about is "need a cable" :)
01:54
troy_s
Still blown away by the folks stressing over the modular concept. It is SUCH a non issue.
01:55
troy_s
It would increase development overhead for _zero_ gain. I cannot think of a single camera that anyone, at any time went “Gee I wish I could upgrade the sensor but keep all of the rest of this perfectly archaic tech.”
01:56
Bertl
hehe, well, it doesn't hurt to play with a bunch of ideas now, than get crazy once we get there with no ideas at all
01:56
troy_s
I am all for ideas... but damn... it is architecture astronautism at its finest.
01:57
Bertl
and I can assure you, it doesn't really consume any resources required for the beta development, if you know what I mean :)
01:58
troy_s
There is a _fantastic_ article on the lead dev of WorldForge that talks (can't track it down now) about how the team spent 110% of their time building libraries so they could "expand everything".
01:59
troy_s
It was remarkable because he eloquently summed it up that they were building support for support. It regressed into a recursive loop.
02:00
troy_s
I used to believe in open ended design... I have since shifted to “get the project done and leave the good ideas for project next.”
02:02
Bertl
I tend to believe it is a two edged sword, spend to little time on thinking about it first will almost always get you trapped in a dead end, spend too much time, you'll never even start
02:02
Bertl
so, you have to find the golden middle
02:05
Bertl
I guess, so far, we've found a good compromise with the alpha prototype
02:06
Bertl
and considering that folks do not work on it full time (because we have to pay for food and shelter :) we've made quite some progress
02:07
Bertl
troy_s: btw, if you need/want special snapshots from the perfect sensor for calibration, now would be the optimal time to send your specifications to sebastian
02:08
Bertl
i.e. he has picked up the boxed prototype on thursday and will do some snapshots with proper (studio) lighting next week, I guess
02:29
troy_s
Bertl: Will do. Will he have it until the 20th?
02:30
Bertl
I guess if you communicate what you need till monday, he will be able to do it till the 20th, I doubt that he will do much during xmas :)
02:30
Bertl
so it takes a little planning I guess

added more functionality and reduced code size then crashed a con and paid for it selling books, good day.
08:45
Bertl
it is always great to add more functionality while reducing code size!

I now implemented a questycaptcha when registring an account on the apertus wiki, the question to answer is "Is apertus° about cameras or carrots?"
14:07
FergusL
haha
14:24
se6astian
its meant to be a very effective spam countermeasure, lets see if it really works well or if people get confused :)
