comradekingu: you could search and summarize the functionality of some useful Beta features to add to the wishlist
20:11
se6astian
like peaking (how is it generated, what parameters would be useful, etc.)
20:11
se6astian
false color overlay, etc
20:21
intracube
se6astian: I noticed that phabricator login isn't happening over https
20:21
intracube
might that be an issue for people using it on public wifi hotspots?

back now ...
20:25
se6astian
intracube: yes there is lab task already to acquire an SSL cert :)
20:27
intracube
ah, ok :)
20:54
se6astian
comradekingu: also I want to look into buying an EVF for our prototypes soon so some research and market overview/suggestions on the wiki would be of great value
20:56
comradekingu
a ready made solution or custom?
20:58
comradekingu
I think the screen in the olympus, or maybe its the a7 sony, is 1280x on a tiny tiny screen, other than that i know we have colour EVFs at work now, will ask how they function
20:59
comradekingu
I am barely able to use focus peaking, i prefer just seeing whats going on in the E/VF
21:00
comradekingu
https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php?title=NewMain_Page peaking is a different page from the Wishlist. pages
21:01
se6astian
an off the shelf EVF
21:01
se6astian
alphatron, smallhd, zacuto, etc.
21:18
comradekingu
anything i should test for?
21:20
se6astian
test?
21:22
comradekingu
we have them, ive used them, but just in a "to get the work done" or "lets see this" sort of way
21:23
Bertl
some kind of review would be nice, with a list of pros/cons
21:23
Bertl
and a copy of technical specifications/features, maybe some kind of comparison chart or so?
21:24
Bertl
i.e. a column for each feature a row for each checked product and a checkmark or number to classify the feature?
21:24
Bertl
(just some ideas)
21:27
comradekingu
Ill make a resources /hardware page on the wiki called Viewfinders to gather info
21:27
comradekingu
or "EVF"?
21:29
comradekingu
or maybe "EVF Evaluation" to keep with current scheme
21:35
se6astian
EVF Evaluation sounds great
21:36
se6astian
I am looking for a sub 1000⬠one that offers HDMI input and great visual performance
21:36
se6astian
I used the alphatron already but the software "broke" mid operation
21:36
se6astian
wouldnt boot anymore...
21:37
se6astian
not good :)
21:37
se6astian
someone recommended a small hd monitor plus loupe
21:37
se6astian
but they dont seem to sell them anymore...
21:44
comradekingu
https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php?title=EVF_Evaluation its a start
21:44
se6astian
great
21:44
comradekingu
I think i used alphatron too, it wouldnt turn on without some fiddling
21:45
comradekingu
ill add requirements
21:47
comradekingu
isnt it easy enough to go from hdmi to DP? Or does that only work the other way around?
21:48
comradekingu
I have a camera with only the screen, and also a 200mm F4 lens, whenever its sunny enough to use it, i cant see anything on that screen
21:48
lab-bot
F4: http://lab.apertus.org/file/data/4wfrsa332ugvve3h6gai/PHID-FILE-bz6vpmzgnwg6jaals5bf/profile-philippe.jpg - profile-philippe.jpg
21:49
se6astian
I think DP converters all only work the other way around.... but never tried, are there any devices that take DP as input?
21:51
comradekingu
yes, there are at least two open source boards for ipad3 (LG) screens that use DP
21:53
comradekingu
DP out is pin compatible with hdmi, for HDMI out i think you need a converter http://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/Active-HDMI-or-DVI-to-DisplayPort-Converter~HDMI2DP
21:55
comradekingu
also like the daisy-chaining of DP, instead of doing star topology cabling to the camera
21:55
comradekingu
or the option to do that
21:56
comradekingu
Lets say you run one display off to editing, quick and dirty, then you daisy another one on that end instead of doing two cables
22:01
se6astian
added F&V to wiki evf evaluation page
22:01
se6astian
ok I guess I should go to bed soon
22:01
se6astian

Its yule, the tradition is to bring in dead animals, which contain the winter spirit, so as to bring summer back around
