Archivist User Guide

Post by duerig » 04 Jun 2015, 14:57

I've created a draft Archivist User Guide to help people make the best use of their kits and provide guidance on what to do after you actually build one. Any comments or questions are welcome. This is a draft that will be edited as new ideas or information come to light.


Camera selection, post-processing options and more are all covered.

This is a great start - and very welcome as I try to get the software side up and running and start to use the Archivist.

I'll try to track information that I think will be important to include.

Thanks for putting it together.
