Digital Cameras / CamcordersSponsored by jamf

A digital camera or digicam is a camera that encodes digital images and videos digitally and stores them for later reproduction. Most cameras sold today are digital, and digital cameras are incorporated into many devices ranging from PDAs and mobile phones (called camera phones) to vehicles. Digital and film cameras share an optical system, typically using a lens with a variable diaphragm to focus light onto an image pickup device.  Digital cameras can display images on a screen immediately after being recorded, and store and delete images from memory. Many digital cameras can also record moving videos with sound. Some digital cameras can crop and stitch pictures and perform other elementary image editing.

Hello all,

I am seeking advice for a home surveillance DVR system but I cannot find a system that meets my requirements.

[EDITED WITH UPDATED DETAILS]

Hello all,

My main disappointment comes from the apparent reality that no one seems to offer a hybrid WiFi and Wired DVR box. I don't know why because I can imagine that nearly everyone has an environment where some points allow for wired cameras and other places around their home are more suitable for a WiFi camera.

In my case, the DVR and my outside patio camera allow for an easy wired camera install but nearly every other point (door), kitchen/dining room are more suitable for WiFi.

My requirements are really modest for a home surveillance system.

  • DVR box with 1 - 2 TB hard drive for a month or so worth of recording.
  • Automatic email notifications when a specific threshold is met.
  • Access to live and recorded video via smart phone
  • 2 wired cameras, 2 WiFi cameras and expansion to 8 cameras
  • Ideally - A peep hole camera for our front door (not sure why this is so difficult to find).

Currently, I have a Lorex surveillance system and I have two WiFi cameras. The WiFi cameras are not integrated with the Lorex, so I have multiple applications and I really want to replace all of this with a single system.

Thank you.

Video overlay of presenter onto webinar screen

I have seen this before, where the presenter on a live webinar showed himself on the bottom of the screen. He could move himself left and right, and probably up and down.

Hw was likely at his desk at home, but his background was not visible.

How is this done?

What is the name of this technology?

Thanks

Using Premiere Pro (Mac) to isolate an audio sound

Using Audacity, I simply select the region about a sound wave and click Play. This tells me if I captured the entire sound. If it is an errant sound, the great thing about audio and no other sound is playing, you can usually delete that.

With video, it's a different story.

I have a dozen clicks to remove from my video. Each was made by my clicker as I advanced the PowerPoint I was using as a teleprompter.

So, I need to isolate the sound and over-write with white noise.

I can easily set a marker BEFORE the sound. I need to see how long the sound is and isolate the entire click.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Need a Movie recording program for Mac

I use iMovie sometime, but can not find how to set my microphone. My Shure microphone with a U-PHORIA UM2 shows up as CODEX on Audacity. Can I use this with Movie?

What alternate movie tools are there?

Can I use Premiere Pro? If so, how do I record? And can I set my Mic.?

What other tools are there to record my video, and use my CODEX? I have High Sierra


Thanks

I'm trying to customize this template. Support has not been really useful.  I replaced those links with "xxx"

On the section course categories there is some columns.

<div class="col-xs-12 col-md-4 teaser_border teaser_border_column_11">
        <div class="teaser text-center  h5">
                <div class="teaser_image">
            <img src="xxx">
        </div>
                    <h5>
                    <a href="rainbow-colleges/course-category/creative-arts/">

Using a clip-on Mike with my iPhone 7 video recorder?

I have a microphone that does well in the wind. So I want to use it for a video on my iPhone 7.

I have this connector adaptor that converts from a round plug to the flat one used by the iPhone 7.

What do I need to do to make this work?

Need a video hosting platform...

I will be selling my video online for $7-$9 each and want to ensure easy watching for the people who buy my videos.

I am new to the whole discussion and do not have an opinion of how to do this yet.

I hear Vimeo can do what we need. But does that require the user to have a password to log in?

I do not care of the file is downloaded to my customer's PC and would fear that a password would reduce the rate of viewership. I prefer to be more open so they can watch it with the click of a mouse.

Please describe some hosting platforms that could work for me.

I am told the cheap Vimeo could work for me, but I hope to hear some confirmation. And I have no idea what I would get versus what I wold be sacrificing.

Does MP4 have a default image option?

I have seen YouTube lets you pick the default image to display on the image, and I wonder if the MP$ format has an option also where I can set the default image to show?

Sometimes, the first image is not the right image to show...

Thanks

PhotoShop CC: need to put a black frame around a photograph

I see how to drop images, create new layers and use the Rectangular Marque Tool, but can not see to get the square around the picture.

I place the picture and draw the square. Fine.

When I then try and fill, Fill... is not active.

I can not draw the frame without the picture there to frame.

What am I missing?

Premiere Pro to adjust volumes on different audio tracks

I have a voice track and a music track and need to adjust the volume of each independently.

I see how to add a Constant Gain and an Exponential Fade, but these are transitions.

How do I set either or both differently for each audio track?

Premiere Pro: Cutting the last frame is a bear

I am getting handy with this Razor Tool, although I hate it.

For example, how do I clear all existing Razor tool markings?

And it is IMPOSSIBLE to click exactly on the final frame, so my video flashes an unsightly image of Mac Finder, since I can not delete that frame.

How can I do this with Premiere?

Thanks

Premiere Pro: How do I read these units?

I see the units are a function of the distance between the two dots at the bottom of the video. Hats off to the programmers who needed to deal with this.

But, I have no idea how to use the following as a guid to later find this spot.

Also, Is there a way to bookmark this spot to make it easy to find next time?

Premiere Pro: Need to cut the leading audio from an MP4

I have created the project and see the exact spot where I want to delete the audio from that point, leftward to the start of the video.

How do I do this?

I assume it involves the Razor Tool and some option in the context menu. I see various audio options, but am not sure what clears the sound. Must I create a file that has silence?

Need Best Video Settings for Canon SX 720

I took a video of myself, after many attempts, that looked acceptable. But I noticed the buildings in the background came in and out of focus.

Then, I noticed, when I came closer to the camera (during filming) even by inches, that triggered the change in focus.

I had the "wheel" set to "Auto" and I assumed there was an auto-focus thing going on.

I need to make yet another take, but first need to understand the video options for that camera.

Please let me know...

I am close to the camera, perhaps 4 feet away. And I am taping the buildings across the harbor, perhaps 1/4 mile away.

Also, is there a way to use Bluetooth for the Microphone?

Thanks!

Best settings for iMovie Export to MP4

I will use a video on Facebook as a sponsored advertisement but have no idea of the best resolution to use.

I have lots of exporting of various clips to make and editing yet to come. So, large file size will be painful. Especially is was for nothing.

Given the background is a distant harbor, I think the best resolution possible, is best. But what should be my target for Facebook ads?

Thanks

Need a microphone to do a video outdoors

My BlueTooth microphone and MacBook onboard mic. were terrible in the wind. The iPhone 7 was the best, but still not very good.

I find that wind causes terrible background noise, and see the TV people use a big foamy mic. on windy days.

What can you suggest that is not expensive and blocks the noise?

Thanks
