Digital Cameras / Camcorders

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.

Helping a friend.  He has 5 nest cameras.  we added the 5th yesterday. Now he says watching the 5 camera view on google chrome on a win 8 PC is choppy (video refreshes every couple / few seconds).  Same issue in IE.

On his iphone in the app, video is smooth (so it seems it's machine specific issue).

I tried on my win 10 machine in chrome and IE on a different network. and same choppy / slow refresh issue.

If he or I click on a single video, get that in a single screen, then the video is fine.

both machines are basic machines, but i5 with 8GB of ram, fully patched

with the slow refresh web page running, task manager doesn't go more than 30% for memory, cpu, disk network...

Interesting, network is 0 for a few seconds then spikes to 5 - 10% for part of a second (with that next to web page, it's when the screen refreshes.... so ithere's not much iof any network going on till it refreshes.

Thoughts?

I called Nest and they didn't have any recommendations other than check the machine... but that was before I saw it was 2 different machines on 2 different networks..

Can I protect my images on Google Photos?

I may use Google Photos to provide access to my photos to a large number of people. I am doing this to support a live tour I plan to give. But, can people (strangers, really) delet my photos?

I hope be able to also block them, in some way, from backing up my entire folder of image to their PC.

So, what kinds of limited access can I provide to Google Photos?

Thanks

Need large display area tablet which is pretty low cost

I will be giving tours and need a cheap tablet with a large display area. I think Android would do the trick due to the higher cost of iPads.

I need to have a WiFi connection and the ability to scroll through images, which will be hosted on my website. I do not need much at all in terms of memory or fancy hardware.

I would consider used, as well, for a lower price.

Even old versions of Android OS are fine, at least I think so.

What is the largest display area for a Tablet?

How about Windows? Acer?


BUT, I need a large display area. Are there any enhanced display options which make it easier to show a small group the images? This kind of upgrade (to a less antiquated version) I would consider, IF it meant the display was easier to see.

So, what can you suggest for me?

Thanks

New info...

This one seems pretty large and pretty cheap:

Hi,

We are looking for a security camera that can alert the user if motion is detected and does not take up much bandwidth.

We have Nest cameras which are on 24/7 but the problem is that they take up a lot of bandwidth.

Here is my criteria for the camera we are looking for:

- Less than €100
- Does not constantly take up bandwidth 24/7; only uses bandwidth for tasks such as notification sending, if user wishes to access pictures taken by the camera,etc.
- Does not need a subscription
- Can send a message to a person's phone when motion detected or when the camera sees someone
- Released in the past 2 years or more recently

What would be recommended as the best security camera with the above criteria?

Thanks,
Robbie

Where are my videos hiding on my iPhone 7?

I am using a few teleprompter apps and start the recording okay, but I can not find where the video is being placed for either app. I look in the Camera app since that is where I see videos when created with the Camera app, but I am sure they are elsewhere...

Any ides where I can find them?

Thanks

Why does my Canon SX720 HS NOT go into Record mode, and beep instead?

I record often with my Canon, and usually have no issue. But sometimes, pushing the Record button causes it to beep three or four times in rapid succession, and NOT record.

There is no error displayed. (Is there an error log somewhere?)

My only recourse is to power off then power up.

I do not have a clue what is happening, and fear that a longer video may be interrupted, where I am recording, only to find later it switched itself off.

Streaming video from my Canon 40X SX720 HS to a MacBook High Sierra. I have not yet connected my camera to my network, but hope to figure out how to set up the streaming.

According to Canon, they do not support this but it requires third party software and works like other camera models from Canon.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Hi! I am looking for the company home page of the company producing Giantree IP cameras.

When I investigate IP Cameras, I found a brand "Giantree" that sells cameras like this in Amazon:
https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B076LYV2MM/?coliid=I2YHAA66U0GP03&colid=17EDXGCU8ID0Z&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

The  Giantree IP cameras also seem to have a good reputation according to a youtube video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaQHL2D5SGY

However, mystically I couldn't find the company website for "Giantree", which produces these cameras. This means if I buy a "Giantree" and encounter any issue (such as losing the manual, or find a defect), I wouldn't be able to contact Giantree (to download manual or get technical support).

Can you help to find out where is this company's website? or confirm that this company does not have any website?

Thank you!

Using a green screen as backdrop for a webinar

I am finding it difficult to find a low-cost location for a webinar, with a desk, good lighting, that's quiet, etc. Not to mention, you can't exactly bring in gear to the library.

So, I am looking more closely at my green screen at home. This is super easy to set up. I have great lighting equipment.

How do I do live webinar on a green screen?

Is it even possible?

If I instead made a 30-minute video of myself and released it as a YouTube video, can I call that a webinar? Or do people assume that a webinar includes other guests?

Curious to hear your suggestions...

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/">
                Creative ARts &amp; Media                   </a>

            Explore film, journalism, photography or theatre, music. Learn from the experts

So let's say I want the whole column to hover when the cursor is on and I also want put a link on the img. which hovers too
