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.

Need to easily make a composite matrix of images

I have roughly 20 images of faces I need to make into a composite. Think Brady Bunch...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_The_Brady_Bunch_characters

4 rows, 5 columns...

But I do not want to need to reduce the size of any image. I want it to auto adjust to fit.

Suggestions for a tool?

Word has a table layout where I could drop each photo. But there will be white space. I instead want this to look like one image with 20 faces.

Suggestions?

It need to be easy...

Thanks

Need to create a Mac Based Image Library

I have thousands of photos of all sorts, and need to build an automated search where I can add attributes and pull up images which satisfy my search criteria.

These are not modern photo's of people, so face recognition is not relevant. Photos are of buildings, maps, historical details, and a few faces, but even those are not usually photographs and tend to be paintings.  So, no face rec.

Also, these are my own private images and do not warrant a cloud solution. Privacy and being able to protect my datas is more important to me. BUT, I would consider using an Azure solution, IF I also had total access to my images with no Internet connection. (I do want some exposure to Azure, as a .NET Developer)

What tools exist that are configurable for this?

I need to add as many attributes as I would like. I need the search tool to reconfigure to include a new attribute.

I am a .NET Software Engineer, so a bit of coding would not scare me.

I would not be afraid to use a cloud solution IF I could also be able to ensure I have the ability to run it locally on my MacBook. My images are controversial, and could cause the master of the universe to try and cut my account...

What about a WordPress plug-in? I would host WP on my Mac if required for this.

I am trying to find a tool (or tools) I can use that will save me a world of work.

Thanks.

After doing a lot of research we decided to go with Hikvision for our CCTV security system. It seems like they are one of the major players. We kind of hit a snag with the computers we monitor the cameras on. We can view maybe 6 cameras simultaneously but the CPU usage at that point runs a constant 80% and is very, very taxing on the computer. Is that normal at the 6 camera mark?

   We were told by their support early on (about 8 months ago) to alleviate this issue by running all the cameras in sub-stream. That solved the issue for 8 months until the other day. I added a camera and everything went to pieces. Half the cameras would not reconnect. Don't know what changed but when I called Hikvision support they determined that the Lorex cameras we started out with couldn't be ran in sub-stream and needed to run them in main-stream. It seemed to work but why, after running fine for 8 months in sub-stream, would the Lorex camera no longer be able to connect when in sub-stream?

   So we changed the Lorex cameras back to main stream and the CPU usage re-reared its ugly head. I called their support and was told that more memory would drastically improve the situation. I called a second time and was told a Video card would drastically improve the situation. Alas on a third call I was told neither would really help. Well I double the memory from 8 to 16GB and put in a nice little Radeon HD6450 with 1GB and unfortunately my third call in was correct. Neither really helped.

We have a Canon PowerShot SD300 and when it is turned on we see the menu for entering the date.

Generally speaking in what mode does a camera have to be set so that when connected to the computer the images are imported.

Currently I am using the built-in Windows 10 CAMERA
app to save 8+ hours of low resolution MP4 video

What software (VLC, etc) do you recommend so it can
fast forward to only the MOTION parts so I do NOT
have to manually watch all 8+ hours of the video ?

Using two microphones with Audacity (Mac High Sierra)

I have two microphones working as inputs with Audacity, via this box:

https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&ei=nt4TXNHgDMOw5wKClbP4Cw&q=UMC202HD&btnK=Google+Search&oq=UMC202HD&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0l10.1107.3443..3840...0.0..0.316.1964.0j4j4j1......0....1..gws-wiz.....0..35i39j0i131.Xobu0FE3zh0

But, Audacity creates a single track with Left and Right sub-channels for a single channel, while I need each to have each microphone in its own channel.

Or, is there a way to convert a track with Left and Right to two distinct channels?

Thanks

Audacity: How to mute all silent periods?

I have pauses between my speech, but sometimes I hear breathing and other small sounds which forces me to edit each one. Or, even a jet overhead which could not be heard as I spoke.

Is there a way to fix all these silent periods at once? Is there a feature (like Amplify) where I could reduce them all by about 10 Db?

Thanks.

I am having trouble using the Mitov Openwire VCL components TVLIPCamera.
I am writing a Windows 32 C++ application using Embarcadero XE10.2 to stream video from an IP camera.
I have a single for Form1 with a TVLIPCamera and VLImageDisplay component, the output pin of the TVLIPCamera component is connected to theinput pin of the
VLImageDisplay. I have set the URL property of the camera component to http://username:password@192.168.1.65/mjpg/1/video.mjpg
the code compiles and runs but there is no video displayed. Mitov advertises the TVLIPCamera component as suitable for use with a "generic IP" camera although the term "generic" is not defined.

I can test the camera with an web browser using the following URL  http://192.168.1.65 Which then prompts me for a user name and password,
after entering both, live streaming of video from the camera is displayed in the browser.
 I have monitored the network traffic to the camera with Wireshark and when the RAD C++ builder application runs, a TCP connection is made with the camera and Wireshark shows 9 TCP packet exchanges but then communication stops.
Any suggestions as to what the URL should be or otherwise what the problem might be would be greatly appreciated ?

The IP camera is a SANNCE Security Cameras Wifi 1080P which is manufactured by ANNKE

Getting a feeling for podcasting

I am about to launch my own podcast, but have little experience with podcasting.

Does a mobile user need a podcasting app? If so, what are the popular one for the iPhone?

I assume I could download it and see how various podcasts are displayed and accessed within the app. This would be very educational for me.

Virtual meetings with multiple participants. 2 or three extra screens facing me so I can see the participants.  Greenscreen behind me.

On top of the monitors is my camera.

I often forget to look in the camera when I'm speaking, or replying to a question.

Need a way to jury-rig a little red light on the camera.  Something to remind me to "Look here." when talking.

Any creative ideas?  Where can I find a bright red, but small single bulb light that I could stick on top of my webcam: https://www.logitech.com/assets/64513/24/c930e-webcam.jpg

And, how could I get it to stick on there?

Thanks!

I'm looking for an iPhone X rear car backup Bluetooth camera backup system where I can install a camera on my rear car bumper (that gets power from my car) that then transmits to my iPhone X so that I can see behind me while I am backing up in my car.

What are some good Bluetooth cameras that do this?

Can YouTube force a user registration before a viewing?

I have a 15 minute training session video that I will offer for free, and will use Facebook to advertise it. But I only hope to show it to people who have registered.

I created this video to help build my opt-in list, so after they register (name and email) I send the URL for the video.

I expect to need to hide the video as Unlisted, but wonder if YouTube can only show a video to users who reveal themselves tome in the form of a name and email address?

Thanks

I'd like to purchase a Video camera (GoPro or similar) that is easy to wear either on a cap or chest, but there is so much available when doing a google search that it's difficult to decide what's good and what's not.

Does anyone have any experience with this and can recommend a unit from personal experience?

Ideally, the unit I'm looking for wouldn't be too obtrusive and quick to put on when needed.

Thanks.

Dear experts,

I take private classes for mathematics.

I plan to video record them. So, I am looking for economical choices.

Is there a camera with mic which I can use to record the class directly into my hard-disk.

The person giving the classes will be sitting around 4ft from the display screen. I plan to mount the camera on to my 21 inch display screen or fix it to the wall behind the display screen.

I am ok with with options like video recording with a camera and a headset for mic.

I want to spend as little as possible to achieve this goal.

Please post links of suggested items (if sold by amazon)

I will be erasing this data once every week. I am not keen only quality of video as long as i can record the audio clearly.

I have HP pavilion Bluetooth enabled) with touchscreen.

Kindly guide.
