  1. What happens if you use a web browser to go to the local IP of the camera? Are you able to do a port scan on it to see if there is a way to access a local stream? If so then it may be possible for you to record using an NVR.
  2. If you want an extremely basic/ more ghetto way of doing it, you could do this kludge. Many gaming keyboards will allow text to be entered as a macro, then simply select a delay that seems realistic for normal typing, then run the macro while capturing the screen. It can be passable if you cut away often enough to make it so that the perfect uniformity of the delay between key presses is not noticed easily.
  3. Micro SD cards do not work well for modern ILCs, especially the Samsung Evo cards. The issue is they often have to make compromises such as a slower internal controller, thus much lower IOPS. Furthermore they will use very low endurance NAND at often the lowest available process nodes. While micro SD can work, it will be an issue in the long run.
  4. Megapixels can become an issue depending on the SOC used by the camera. Some cameras, e.g., Some Sony and Fujifilm ILCs will do things like a 6K capture at full sensor width, then super sample down to the user selected resolution. That allows for correction of false color and moire while also improving the effective color resolution of the scene, all without resorting to an OLPF that sacrifices fine detail. In the cases when you have too high of a sensor resolution, e.g., a 45 megapixel sensor, then you will see that video capture will have a heavy crop. That is because the company simply does not have an effective way of capturing a full sensor width readout at 30+ FPS, thus you will end up with either a bad crop or tricks such as line skipping or pixel binning which can cause strange artifacts. For example, compare raw 4K from the Nikon Z6 to the internally recorded 4K in terms of detail. The internal recording will be more detailed as it is actually a 6K capture super sampled to 4K while when doing 12 bit raw video capture, it is a crop and a direct 4K capture, thus while you get a massive dynamic range boost, you also end up with certain textures now being able to cause false color and moire issues. The modern trend now is to get rid of the OLPF thus more detailed stills and video, and then super sample the footage.
  5. Most raw interpreters should correct fringing quite easily, though in some cases, chromatic aberration can be tricky to fix on some cheaper lens that have no optical corrections for it. One issue is how chromatic aberration takes place, Due to how different wavelengths of light bend by the lens element, usually with lower end lenses may have a single aspherical element designed to correct chromatic aberration in the central portion of the DOF on the focal plane, but high contrast objects with highlights will have some green or purple shift In those cases, you will have to do some additional adjustment in the lens corrections. In some cases, you may have to work in layers if the automated corrections outside of the central part of the DOF start to impact other tones of objects in the image. In that cane you will simply have a correction layer where the full correction is made, then you use a layer mask and slowly brush in the corrections in a targeted manner, though it is rare. I attached 2 files. The second image is just a crop into the issue I described. The lens used in a Nikon 35mm f/1.8 G DX. The lens only has internal corrections for fringing and chromatic aberration along the central region of the DOF, but speculars will get those issues as you move away from the focal plane. These issues will happen regardless of the location in the frame. The reason why it is more common to see those issues near the corners is because the vast majority of lenses have an uneven focal plane, where the subject distance for proper focus of the center of the frame is different than a subject distance for the corner of the frame. The lenses that avoid those issues are expensive, e.g., if I wanted to optically fix those issues, I would have to spend close to $500 on a 35mm f/1.8 lens. When corrected, the results an be quite good, e.g., here is how it looks after correction. (trying to figure out a way to prevent it from embedding the images in the post)
  6. Hopefully Samsung will avoid price gouging for the 980 pro. The 3.5GB/s reads of the 970 pro is really inadequate for many general tasks.
  7. Does the gap near the front allow for the front grill to double as a cheese grater?
  8. For your budget, if you want the highest specs for the money (no cut corners on performance related components) then the current best is the ZTE Axon 10 pro. Their unlocked non carrier devices often get 2+ years of updates, with the exception of the Axon 7 which got his hard from the trade issues with the US. Basically $550 for a model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage.
  9. I was thinking that instead of trying to go below ambient, why not have a peltier there to deal with more extreme situations. For example, when it comes to radiators, you can get diminishing return. But even in those situations, if you take a standard air cooler, and pipe in the cold air from an air conditioner, you can drastically reduce the CPU temperature without a delid. One situation I wonder is what if a peltier can be added somewhere in the loop with its own heatsink and if just there to add around 50-60 watts of heat transfer in order to possibly deal with a scenario where the 360mm radiator is handling a good overclock just fine, but then you hit 95C under an AVX workload, and at that point the additional peltier can add a little extra active cooling to probably knock that temperature down 5 or more C.
  10. I wonder, how about adding a peatier cooler to the reservoir of a traditional water cooling loop, so that it dissipates a little extra head from the loop that the standard radiator misses? The heat transfer in liquid cooling works almost linearly in terms of speed, the larger the temperature delta the faster it cools, for example, a 360mm radiator will not cool a a smartphone SOC to ambient, it will get close but as the deltas get smaller the amount of surface area needed to get closer to ambient increases exponentially. To increase the delta in liquid temperature, why not cool the reservoir with peltier?
  11. Some companies offer recovery services while targeting business customers, e.g., https://iosafe.com/
  12. The docking connector used is likely for the purpose of the self cleaning contacts where the contact surfaces apply a lot more force and are made of a thicker material than gold plated PCB traces on an m.2 card.The hiding of the connector type is likely secondary to having a connector that is less sensitive to a little dust other stuff getting on the connector. Furthermore, if the device ever needs servicing, then all they need to do is swap the adapter. I don't have a problem with them using those adapters since the connector types have known utilitarian benefits over a standard m.2 connector when it comes to reliability and not needing to be cleaned as often. For the data recovery services, that does not justify the pricing since there are many external drives sold that include "free" data recovery" that don't have anywhere near such an astronomical markup. (most are sold at a 150-200% markup, and their enclosures are often water and fire resistant and often come with a 5 year data recovery guarantee. The reason they can offer that is most people will never use it, and like home owners insurance, far more people pay into it then ever use it, thus the costs + profits can be spread out over many people. The only way their data recovery could justify such a large markup is if virtually every customer is experiencing failures that warrant the data recovery service to be used. But beyond that, recovery is no excuse for redundancy. Even the best and most expensive recovery services are regularly unable to recover 100% of the data, and in some rare cases, nothing can be recovered.
  13. Wanted to also link this here http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?150422-All-Out-of-1TB-MINI-MAGs&p=1702571&viewfull=1#post1702571 " The good news is even though the prior-gen drive was 512GB, we were able to preserve nearly the same usable space for you guys on the 480GB. " https://www.corporationwiki.com/p/2m11n6/brent-carter It seems at some point they just started sticking the 480GB SSDs in the 512GB enclosures,having the camera firmware read specific SSD models as 512GB regardless of their actual capacity, they would be labeled as a red minimag 512GB, though the available storage space reading would reflect that of a 480GB drive. Thus customers purchasing the 512GB during that period, paid extra for a 480GB drive compared to just getting the 480GB model.
  14. More of that is delved in this video. Wanted to also add, for the 480GB drive in the video,there is no telling the original capacity (assuming a defect free die) since no datasheets are available. https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-made-usa-standard From the forum posts, it also appeared that at a certain time, the 512GB labeled drives were more expensive than the 480GB drives, even though they started to place 480GB drives into the 512GB enclosures.
  15. When I mentioned the 1000 vs 1024, I was not trying to explain what RED was doing, instead I was pointing out an area of the market where formatted capacity can be different and it is still accurate. In the case of RED, in the original video, the previous drives that contained true 512GB drives, actually had more space, The staff there stated a 5% difference. a 480GB SSD that may contain 512GB of raw NAND does not mean that all 512GB works. One thing that is very common with NAND production is an attempt to sell every functional package on the wafer, and that often comes in the form of dies where some NAND cells are defective to be sold as a lower capacity. Furthermore in the case of budget SSDs like the kind shown in those videos, are unlikely to do something like use 32GB overprovisioning, even enterprise SSDs don't go that far at that capacity level. Anyway for the storage comments it just reminded me of the UK parliament session where loot boxes suddenly became "surprise mechanics" Edit: for the scam comment, it is based on if a higher price is justified due to misleading information. For example, many people in the US are willing to pay more for something made in the USA, if you lie about where a product is made, then you can likely save on cheap labor from China, while getting the profit bump from people willing to accept a higher price of an item made in the US. Same if you try to market a 480GB drive as 512GB.
