Re: Libreflip - a new open source page-turning bookscanner

I am currently using the CU130 of E-Con systems: https://www.e-consystems.com/UltraHD-USB-Camera.asp I would be thrilled to try the DFK AFU420-L62 of The Imaging Source (https://s1-dl.theimagingsource.com/api/2.5/packages/documentation/factsheets-single/fsdfkafu420l62/6f9fcefc-b57d-5fc...

Libreflip - a new open source page-turning bookscanner

TL;DR: I am making an automatic page-turning open source book scanner and I create weekly videos about the project. Sometimes I take on projects that are reaching far. This one is no exception.

Re: Dire camera situation 2017

But factor in the huge and growing smartphone market that drive camera R&D and it probably won't be long before we see pi camera modules that rival powershots in resolution and image quality. Dear dtic, I dont have high hopes for this. Current Smartphone-cameras are using multiple MIPI lanes (2 or ...

Re: Dire camera situation 2017

Dear all, yesterday I went to a meeting from the organisation searchwing, which is building a very simple fixed wing drone to capture images of radar targets.

Re: Dire camera situation 2017

Thanks for all your opinions regarding this topic. Please tell me - how much would YOU be willing to donate towards a current CHDK-Port? We need to buy at least a camera for the volunteer who wants to do it, but we might want to give a bit more then that. If you are uncomfortable saying it out loud ...

Re: Dire camera situation 2017

I don't think 12 MP is required. I use 5 MP cameras I buy on eBay for under $100. Unless you're scanning large-format books, or books with really tiny glyphs, that's adequate, IMO. If 5MP is enough for your purposes, then great! I think it helps to have a finer resolution, especially for deskewing-...

Dire camera situation 2017

Heyho, first of all - I wish you a happy new year! After lots of research, I have to say that the Camera situation seems to be dire. As it stands, there is not a single camera that is: a) still being made / available b) supported by CHDK The last one that was still available in december but is not a...

Re: Camera Focus / different AF methods

This should definitly be documented. If you would be so kind and tell me in which .rst-file on github this info belongs, I would happily put it there.
