Of course it should not be the only element in your security, it's just a very simple way to avoid the majority of attacks.

For SSH I think you need to add a field for the port because leaving the SSH server on port 22 is not a good idea (the vast majority of automated attacks by bots are on the default port, if you can change it you avoid 95 % of them).

Chronos User Discussion / Re: Power Supply

The original one is a 19 V 2.1 A PSU made by Delta, model ADP-40KD and is pretty small for its power (something like 3 * 4 * 10 cm).

But any power supply of 40 W or more and between 17 and 22 V with a 5.5/2.5 positive tip barrel jack (all info is from the camera's datasheet) is compatible.

Edit: it's this one: ;)

The main problem is in the debayering method but the last firmware update (0.3.0) has greatly improved it (but 99.9 % of the videos on the internet are videos from before the update was available).

The raw data is very good since the beginning:

You have very good ideas :D

Of course if we can have all the buttons as customizable soft buttons it would be great.

And I think the battery icon should always be displayed (even when there's buttons on the top row).

I like the second one, good job on that. I'd only add the possibility to write custom text in addition to the presets (%frame%, ...) and the possibility to have the timings as 01:23:45.678 for example (because following a dozen digits number when you are editing or even just watching the video is not super easy) or even better: to be able to specify our own format (like the date() function in PHP for example) with something like h:m:s.M (or %h%:%m%:%s%.%ms% so we can have prettier tags (ms instead of M...)) for example.

It'll not save anything to the SD card until you press the trigger. It's not like a classic camera, the Chronos record in RAM in a ring buffer so it'll no take any space on the SD card unless you save the buffer to the SD.

Yep; photodiode, phototransistor, LDR, CDS, ...

But yeah, given your use case it's best if it's in software ;)

Code: [Select]
sudo chmod +x
Then retry your command (without sudo, shouldn't be needed here).

Why not a hardware trigger? Just a few components would do the trick.

Just some ideas:

Maybe a white on black UI would be less violent than the black on white.

Let the user choose the fore and background colors (colors can be just a gradient of a dozen of grays, no need to be really fancy).

Maybe the font 'clearview' would be a good idea, it has been especially designed to be the most readable possible.

NB: as for most other UIs I prefer something simple and functional even if it's not that pretty than something pretty but more or less unusable; but that's just my personal opinion.

Thanks for your work ;)

Personally I prefer this one for the text:

And this one for the number (that must be the most perfect layout you can do, very good job on that :D):

The jog wheel can do two things: spin and click.
I figure the logical thing to do is keep having an unpressed spin cycle the value a little, and a pressed spin cycle the value a lot. Like on the Play screen. However, if you just click the wheel without spinning it, it'll pop you out of the control you're editing so you can select a different control or button. Click the jog wheel again to edit the new control or click the button.
I think this is the most natural and intuitive way to do it, so looking forward to it. However please try to keep the different option windows (recording, saving, trigger settings...) somewhat consistent in their design and orientation. For example a general left to right or preferably up to down direction for the user inter-actable items. You should not be surprised which input field is going to be selected next by rolling the wheel and they should not jump around too much :)

I agree, basically wheel click working like the tab key on a PC and spin = increase/decrease the value, can't do better than that I think ;)

The creator of the camera (David) has made a complete teardown. If I recall correctly it's on his main youtube channel (tesla500).

Right now, we've got it down to 4 seconds for max resolution, and more or less instantaneous at low resolutions.

We've got a few ideas to make it effectively instantaneous, at which point we'll remove the little reminder popup and just perform software black cal when we need to. (This probably won't make it into the next release though.)

Wow, that's impressive! Good job on that ;)

Version B is my favorite (and with vertically aligned inputs it would even better) :)
