Nikon Announces Easy to Use 3D Measuring Device – July 1st

admin : May 21, 2014 2:10 pm : Technology

The Portable 3D Measuring System – P3D NC-2323S will be available to consumers on July 1st, 2014.pic_140521_1

The P3D NC-2323S is extremely user friendly. It’s light weight and easy to carry, weighing approximately 1.9 kg. This small package includes a sensor, operator, and can be powered by an AC adapter or battery, convenient for when on site and power sources are not always available.

This easy to use measuring system requires no prior experience wish such devices. “3D measuring data are captured by moving the lens over an object and pressing the shutter button,” placing it ahead of other measuring systems currently on the market.

HDR Video for Canon DSLR Cameras

admin : December 23, 2011 10:37 am : Digital Video Technology, Digital Video Technology, HDR-High Dynamic Range Imaging, Technology

high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods.

Magic Lantern  has developed  firmware fad-on that will enable HDR video on Canon T2i (550D)  T3i (600D) and 60D HD DSLR Cameras an it’s FREE!  We’ve been expecting HDR Video Cameras  to become the norm for years and this is a big leap in that direction.  So much effort is going into 3D camera development that HDR isn’t getting it’s fair due.  This firmware ad-on solution will likely turn a lot of heads and start a movement in the industry toward HDR video cameras development & design.

The firmware ad-on does not overwrite Canons camera firmware, it ads on to it.  The Free firmware ad-on can be downloaded here  http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/Release_2011Dec22

HDR imaging is a technique that combines images with a range of exposures to provide higher range of detail from shadow to highlight. Photographers were doing this manually long before digital imaging, but digital solutions make it much easier and feasible, even for video.  HDR Video has been accomplished by using multiple cameras in the past, but I’m not aware of any mainstream solutions like Magic Lantern’s firmware will provide.  The firmware switches exposure between frames and creates two videos which can later be edited  back together to to create a single High Dynamic Range Video.  Many advanced still photographers are accomplished HDR technicians.  The thought of combining 30FPS Video is mind boggling but today’s computational imaging hardware and software is capable of such mind boggling feats.

Magic Lantern’s first firmware add-on enhanced the sound and video capabilities of the Canon 5D Mark II.  Sadly, the HDR Video firmware ad-on will not support the 5D Mark II or the 7D.   Below is a video outlining the capabilities of the Canon 5D Firmware add-on. This video explains how the firmware ad-on works.
