morning folks!
18:05
troy_s
Morn.
18:34
intracube
I'm kind of surprised that more people weren't interested in a vertical body arrangement for the Beta
18:34
intracube
(https://lab.apertus.org/V9)
18:36
intracube
wouldn't it make a shoulder setup a fair bit more ergonomic?
18:41
Bertl
maybe, but the Beta is already very small, so probably you can still make the case higher and call it 'vertical'?
18:43
Bertl
also note that it should be rather straight forward to make the "rotating" PCB (if you really want one)
18:44
Bertl
i.e. it doesn't need any electronic components, just four connectors and a lot of routing
18:44
troy_s
intracube: Most folks are probably caught up in a haze of frenzy
18:44
troy_s
DSLR form factors absolutely suck for shooting, hence the plethora of after market expensive bits that take the DSLR model and migrate it to a longer form factor.
18:45
intracube
Bertl: yep, I can't visualise the size of the Beta
18:46
intracube
Bertl: maybe later revisions of the Beta case/enclosure could have a tripod screw fixing on one of the sides
18:46
intracube
to make it easy to mount vertically
18:49
intracube
troy_s: it seems to be a trend
18:50
intracube
having small camera heads where cage/rails come separately
18:50
troy_s
It has a pattern of an art movement actually.
18:50
intracube
maybe it makes sense for the wide range of uses people have these days
18:50
intracube
like cam + quadcopter setups
18:50
troy_s
DSLRs suddenly shoot motion pictures. Motion picture shooting then evolves to look like DSLRs.
18:50
troy_s
Classic design goofballery.
18:51
intracube
idk
18:51
troy_s
It is always about context.
18:51
troy_s
Sure there are cases where smaller / odd shape has a useful design context.
18:52
troy_s
But there are also cases (and in this instance, a majority) where a particular form factor is accommodated by a different form.
18:52
troy_s
(Head use, handheld, etc.)
18:53
troy_s
Often overlooked is the fact that a head has a counterbalance mechanism. Longer is the only method to balance without adding rubbish tree weights etc.
18:53
troy_s
So remote heads, O'Connor fluid heads, etc. Handheld same issue.
18:54
troy_s
But alas... We are stuck in a malaise where asshattery heralds Utoipian design (hello Apple)
18:55
intracube
troy_s: this setup looks rather front-heavy: http://blackmagicreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/blackmagic-production-camera-4k1.png
18:58
troy_s
The term you are looking for is stupid.
18:59
troy_s
Exactly
19:00
intracube
or top heavy: or top heavy: http://videoandfilmmaker.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/blackmagic-production-camera-4k-3.jpg
19:00
intracube
echo echo ...
19:02
intracube
whereas this looks a lot more balanced: http://brainboxcameras.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Blackmagic-Camera.jpg
19:02
intracube
potentially, anyway
19:03
intracube
actually, the lens still looks a way forwards considering where the shoulder pad is
19:04
intracube
anyway, this is off topic
19:29
troy_s
intracube: Generally why I tend to harp on about context.
19:29
troy_s
intracube: Too many voices that step to the table with a really busted up idea of what design is. When I was studying, we had it hammered in about context.
19:30
troy_s
(That includes historical context as well, because that plays a significant role. Even in cinema stuff, you have the context of being able to accomplish something within an existing historical context. Gear. Software. Etc.)

comradekingu
I saw the latest talk very nice, curious about the 3d printer, maybe a feature on that could be added for the next talk.
19:58
comradekingu
Is it possible for likeminded projects to borrow production-time on it?
