04:40
troy_s
I would love a transcript.
04:42
dmj_nova
I think there's still some work ahead to crystallize the results of the meeting into something we can use, but progress was made

Bertl
a lego rocket launcher! :)
04:46
dmj_nova
Bertl: :P
04:46
FergusL
I want it more Aatonesque
04:46
FergusL
(bonjour troy_s)
04:47
dmj_nova
FergusL: what about that do you mean?
04:47
FergusL
the shape of the camera
04:47
FergusL
what is this picture demonstrating ?
04:48
dmj_nova
FergusL: it's very placeholdery still
04:48
dmj_nova
but it
04:48
FergusL
I get it :)
04:48
dmj_nova
's meant to show how the modules could be used in a device that behaves as a singular shoulder unit
04:49
FergusL
I see, yes
04:50
dmj_nova
basically form factor can be an integration problem, rather than a complete redesign problem
04:50
FergusL
I think operators generally like to have one single block
04:51
dmj_nova
FergusL: but do operators care much if the single block has blocks inside it?
04:52
FergusL
their 1st or 2nd ACs will but that's another part of the story
04:52
FergusL
I gues they don't if it's well balanced
04:53
dmj_nova
FergusL: I think it is possible to have our cake and eat it too, so long as we get the ergonomics and "it just works" form factor right
04:53
dmj_nova
things like balance and so forth
04:54
dmj_nova
FergusL: Where exactly should the center of gravity be in a shoulder cam?
04:54
dmj_nova
precisely center on the shoulder?
04:54
FergusL
hahaha, to have our cake and eat it ? never read that !
04:55
dmj_nova
FergusL: you've never seen that expression?
04:55
Bertl
from the physical point of view I guess it would be the right foot :)
04:55
dmj_nova
It's a common english idiom.
04:57
FergusL
I'm not sure I can give a definite answer, definitely not in the center like it should stand still when dropping the handles, slightly in the front to have it tend to fall this way, know what I mean ?
04:57
FergusL
and to make sure that there is some weight on the hands
04:57
dmj_nova
so slightly in front but not so much that it takes effort to hold in place
04:58
FergusL
hm yes
04:58
FergusL
maybe troy_s could give some more insights
04:58
FergusL
but really do investigate the Aaton cameras
04:58
FergusL
these are known for their ease of handling and balance as well as softness on the shoulder
04:59
dmj_nova
I can look at pictures of them, but can't afford to play with one
05:00
FergusL
of course yes, I meant pictures yes
05:02
FergusL
their trademark is also the single wooden handle, we might like to add that as well to our design
05:02
FergusL
I've got a (very young) friend studying wood working, I asked him to see if he could make one for me
05:02
Bertl
so you intend to get sued
05:03
FergusL
I was wondering
05:03
FergusL
let's make it a left handle in a different wood
05:04
FergusL
there are already some small one-man businesses offering to make perfect replicas for DSLRs setup
06:10
dmj_nova
is that actually a trademark?
06:10
dmj_nova
probably just fine using another material
06:12
dmj_nova
FergusL: or do you mean that it's just rather distinctive and nobody else has done it?
06:13
FergusL
yes just distinctive
06:14
FergusL
but highly appreciated among operators that have known their cameras
06:17
dmj_nova
FergusL: needed to make sure that's all it was
06:31
troy_s
FergusL: Bonjour. Comme ça va?
