morning folks!

Morning Bertl! I hope you had a good time in Las Vegas.
09:31
Bertl
yes, it was quite nice, thanks!
09:34
Bertl
how is it going on your end?
09:49
masplund
Fine! We have a device candidate for the pre-processing board :-)

may I ask, why the preference over the XC7A200T
09:56
Bertl
?
09:58
Bertl
I presume because of the higher bandwidth on memory and serial tranceivers, yes?

aombk3
i saw this reply of yours Bertl
10:12
aombk3
and i always wondered about telecommunication costs
10:12
aombk3
iin other countries
10:14
aombk3
because here calls to almost any other country are free
10:17
Bertl
it's between 2 and 10 EUR per minute, depending on the provider

what is a preprocessing board?
11:18
Bertl
the 'interface board' for the AXIOM Gamma

alexML_: what do you need for noise analysis?

hi
13:07
Francky
i just red the "NAB Show report"
13:07
Francky
the picture of the beta is great
13:08
Francky
did you build the lens mount with your CNC ?
13:30
Bertl
yes, the lens mount was made with the CNC, Manfred did take care of that
13:31
Bertl
the base of the lens mount to be precise, the bajonet part is an existing extension tube, IIRC
13:36
Francky
but isn't it uncompatible with your aim that everybody can build its own camera "easily" ?
13:40
aombk3
Francky, not really
13:40
aombk3
changed nick to: aombk
13:41
Francky
but nobody will be able to build its own camera without buying your lens mount right ?
13:41
Francky
or buying a CNC...
13:41
aombk
"easily" means there are no artificial obstacles like proprietary designs and protocols
13:42
Francky
i meant "easily" = with "standard" product expect pcb
13:43
Francky
but maybe this king of mecanical part are not easy to find and not standard ?!
13:44
aombk
yes they are not standard
13:45
aombk
but i am sure if a standard parts solution is found then it will be added to the wiki or a possible how to

you can probably print the lens mount in your 3D printer at the fab lab and just glue the extension ring to it
13:46
aombk
it is very possible someone interested can find a combination of lens extension tubes and a way to attach them to the camera body
13:46
Bertl
it will not have the precision, but it will work
13:47
aombk
but either way, you have to have some tools and skills
13:47
Bertl
if you got access to a proper mill (again at a fab lab) you can build it with higher precision, if all else fails, order it somewhere online
13:48
aombk
easily doesnt mean "no tools and no skills" required
13:48
Bertl
for those with no technical skills, we will offer complete Betas :)
13:49
aombk
thats right
13:50
Francky
yes indeed but i thought that a simple piece like that can afraid some people because i thought building a mecanical piece is not as simple as order pcb
13:50
Bertl
that's why we will have such parts available in our shop, if there is some demand
13:51
aombk
Bertl, is there any possibility for you to operate as a custom design cnc mill fab lab or something, sometime in the future?
13:51
Bertl
so you can choose, depending on your skillset, what you want to build yourself, or just order :)
13:51
Francky
offer a shop is a good solution indeed
13:52
Bertl
aombk: we'll see, for now the focus is on apertus (specifically AXIOM and related parts)
13:52
Francky
how did you do for the alpha ? you didn't have the cnc at this moment right ?
13:53
Bertl
the design for the Alpha lens mount existed (it was done before my time with apertus) and we had a model made from aluminum (cnc)
13:53
Bertl
we simply ordered two or three more in Germany from a company doing CNC stuff
13:54
Francky
ok so it is also custom made pieces
13:54
Bertl
yes
13:55
Bertl
I doubt there are off the shelf lens mounts matching the cmosis sensors
13:55
Bertl
but if you find some, please let us know :)
13:55
Francky
because it wasn't described on the website (or i have not find it), i thought it was an exernal purshase
13:56
Bertl
the lens mount model is open (of course) and it should be linked on the web pages somewhere
13:56
Francky
i don't espescially look for it :) but the picture questionned me

there are sets like these. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/888030-REG/vello_ext_cem_manual_extension_tube_set.html i have some and i will test to see if i can find a combination when the time comes
14:01
Bertl
yes, something like this will work, the "base" just needs to account for the tube length
14:02
Bertl
off for now ... bbl

23:51
Bertl

23:55
intracube
Bertl: is the php src for irc.apertus.org available?
23:56
Bertl
not sure, best check with se6astian
23:56
intracube
ok
23:56
