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.

I've been doing a lot of travelling and road tripping with the family and I always find it hard and time consuming to gather all photos from cameras and iphones into one comfortable experience in front of the television. It's usually a mess to import photos from camera, and my wife, me and daughter's iphone...they mess up the dates and mix up photos and videos. Then later on viewing on my television through AppleTV(gen4) is slow and not a good experience.

I'm using Mac and iphone and has a Sony camera and a Sony television and AppleTV (gen4).

I was thinking of a cloud service or piece of software where I can basically dump all photos and videos from all my devices and it will make sure to present it all nicely on my TV so we can all sit comfortable and enjoy our adventures :-)

Camera: Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 (Full HD 1080p video calling (up to 1920 x 1080 pixels))

I have an app that I want to simply trigger the camera to take a still, high quality photo and store the image with a file name I will provide automatically.   I would also like to display an image on the screen so they know the product being photographed is lined up under the camera.

All the code I find online seems to be a variation of this code:  

While this code does take a picture, the quality is worse than a cheap kids camera.    So for some reason it does not use the full capability of the camera to take a quality picture.  I want to be able to zoom in on the picture to make out the writing.

Is there some way in the code I can force the camera to take a higher quality picture?

If not, is there some low cost VB.net add-in that could be used to acheive this?

Is there a low cost non-webcam digital camera that can be mounted and can connect via UBS and be controlled by vb.net to take HQ photos?

I have attached the picture I took.   In the middle of the picture there is a tan cut out of a magazine article.  When I zoom in on the photo it is all pixelated and you cannot make out any words.

Thanks

So we have about 12 cameras at our company that records all day every day.The 1TB drive in the Platinum dvr gets full super fast and we are unable to retreive old recordings from a couple of months back. So i was looking at some unlimited cloud backup solutions like like Crashplan and Backblaze. Now Crashplan is good as it allows me to not only backup all files but also all mapped network drives. is there a way for me to access the DVR hdd from my file server and somehow map it to my server so the backup software can upload all the recordings? Any alternatives? Any advice would be appreciated:)

Hi,

I would like advice or a recommendation for security cameras that would have good color detail at night.
My cameras show fuzzy images in the shadows. :)

What would I look at to pick a very good color detail day and night?
Zoom in ability?
180 degree turn ability and ? tilt 45 degrees?

I am thinking of getting a couple more cameras to see how I like them at my house.
Then may add to my rental house.

Should I look at anything else that I missed?

Thank you,
BillC

A friend has intelli-studio on his PC, Windows 10
When he USB-connect his camera, all (new) pictures are automatically transfer from it to his pictures directory.
The problem is that intelli-studio creates one directory per day (on the camera, this is not the case)
I could not find the place where to configure this so that all pictures go inside one single (sub)directory

Hello Friends,

Can anyone pls advice if any such VMS software is available (Free/paid) which can be used in front-end to monitor all CCTV cameras.

Regrets for long explanation.

Looking forwards to have your experts advice.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers!

How can you use  you embedded cameras to make a 3D model? How many would it take to make a 3D model of a 2,000 square ft. house? Is there a certain kind of camera you need to do it or could you use any multiple cameras? If there is a certain type of camera you need then how expensive are they?

hi,

can someone recommend a security camera for my home to install?

my next door neighbour happened to see somebody trying to break into their house around about 5 ocklock in the morning. They could see a dark figure but not the face as it is still a little bit dark. Now they are planning to install a security camera.

I told them, i will supply and install it but looking for advice on the best one and affordable for home used.

We live in the pacific and order most of the time from the following supplier in New Zealand:

Can someone recommend the best one used for home?

Regards,

Greetings Experts,

I have a Panasonic WJ-NV300 DVR with several cameras.  I'm having a problem loading the GUI on a few computers.

Have 5 computers in total, 2 work, 3 do not.  All settings are the same in Internet settings.  Flash and Java are up to date.

The video guy, said when he originally logged onto the gui there was a download from the DVR, I'm not getting that message on the ones that are not working.    

Also, the one that works has WebMedia Control from Panasonic, in the add-ons.. the others do not.  I'm guessing this is the problem.  

I can't seem to find a manual download.

Directx 11 is installed

Anyone know how to get this add on?  I've seen a bunch of dead ends on the Interweb..

Thanks,

Kacey

Hello. I am a private individual, not a business, and I am not a computer professional.  I am in possession of a digital camera that was found in a hotel  room in Las Vegas.  There are MANY photos on this camera and I assume that the owner would want it back.  The hotel has been of no help in providing any information that would help identify the owner.  There are many photos of various people on the camera and so I am thinking that maybe a facial recognition program or some kind of internet photo search program might help identify someone in these pictures which could lead to the owner.  This is a one-off project just to try to identify the owner of the camera and so I do not want to spend a ton of money on software or applications.  Is there any free facial recognition software I could use?  Are there any companies who specialize in this kind of stuff?  Any ideas / suggestions?  Thank You.
