Excellent footage, I see an absence of dark pixels in your video.  Did you get a second batch camera?  Everything I shoot is littered with dark pixels in the image on shadow areas.  Wondering if the batch has anything to do with it.

Also, the open source release is imminent, finally have a working build environment that doesn't have any of the NDA code in it! Hopefully within the week.

Awesome news! I'm really curious to take a look under the hood.

That mode to do exactly what you want isn't yet supported. The closest thing you can do is have the camera recording, and provide it a TTL signal to end record. You can set any desired trigger delay in frames if required. You'll need to manually select the appropriate range and then save the desired 400ms range.

Let me know if you have more questions on how to set this up.

David,

How complicated would it be to allow the user to select what resolutions we want in the drop-down menu?

Maybe we could have a few "user preset" slots in the drop-down menu? Or would this entail too many |UI changes, adding buttons etc for this revision?

That is quite easy, you could do it now manually in fact. If you put the OS SD card into a Linux system, add your resolutions, one per line, in /opt/camera/resolutions

resolutions is just a text file, the default content is:

Code: [Select]
1280x1024
1280x720
1280x512
1280x360
1280x240
1280x120
1280x96
1024x768
1024x576
800x600
800x480
640x480
640x360
640x240
640x120
640x96

The next version is being worked on right now. Features in this coming version are:
  • Remembering settings across reboots (most common request!)
  • Fix for a potential cold-temperature RAM issue (seen as horizontal bands of colored pixels)
  • Autonomous operation with automatic save-after-trigger and automatic recording start after save
  • Maybe HDMI

If HDMI doesn't get into this release, it will be in the next.

Ethernet will be coming in a subsequent update, it's a big project, the entire low-level camera control needs to be broken out of the user application and made to work over network.

Also, the open source release is imminent, finally have a working build environment that doesn't have any of the NDA code in it! Hopefully within the week.

4 of the Stratus lights have just arrived.

Still waiting for the 24V PSUs to get here (cheapest I could find was 48 each but hey ho), but  I've tried them out on a bench PSU which maxes out at 17V, and they're looking very usable.

Different colour temperature to the other LED spotlights I've been using, but that shouldn't notice too much. It's often difficult to get LED lights from different manufacturers to match exactly.

I'm going to make a cover for them to protect the PCB better. Should be trying them with the Chronos next week sometime.
