Fellows, please, let's keep everything cool and friendly around here. This is such a unique forum, just look at all the huge threads going on. There's an incredible amount of interest here and everything would go so much more smoothly if we keep it civil and professional. Please try to keep that in mind -- and no finger pointing please, it doesn't matter who started what, all that matters is that we all work together and get along as respectful and courteous people. Many thanks to all,

Hey Obin, how much do you think it'll cost to machine a case?

As of right now I'm estimating around $1,500 with mill time costing from $50-$70/hr. ($70 is for a 5-axis mill).

I can do the Solidworks modeling myself (my brother :)

BTW Obin,

are you planning any way to adjust the gains on the camera, i.e. the analog gains? How precisely can you set them (individual gains), and also how precisiely can you set the frame-rate?

yes R G B gain and RGB MASTER GAIN and framerate from 1 60fps ( or whatever your hard disk can fly)

We will have white balance of the R G B analog gains so that we get as much color info as we can in the 10bit file

Eric

what type of machines does your roommate have access to?
We would need a med-large machine to cut a case that would house all the electronics..I was going with molds but hey if you have access CNC is da bomb!

Hey guys, i'm actually in the process of building a CNC mill for what its worth. I don't want to promise anything cause its not done yet but I would certainly be willing to put in whatever work I can. Oh yeah I have'nt forgotten about making the matte box either just had to post-pone it for awhile hopefully i will be fully on track in about 3 weeks.

OK, this time I take a short vacation and there is a civilized amount of reading. I'll be gone for another two days.

Obin:
Thanks for answering some of my product questions.

Obin on Altasens:
We have our first color camera running. I haven't checked them but my boss is busy messing with it. Here is an example:

http://www.siliconimaging.com/Sample...0corrected.zip

Altasens is being slow in releasing parts - probably no cameras until late October. We will have the boards ready, housings ready and support from frame grabber companies lined up.

Wayne:
That EOS controller is very cool - I've been looking for them. A motorized zoom is about $2K and up for c mount. For less you can use the Canon lenses. Great selection of optics. And putting a shutter on it. I'll talk to engineering about putting an RS-232 port on our cameras for lens control. Thanks.

On the SI-3170:
We had a few cinematographers messing with it about 1.5 years ago but as ....someone.... said, with the new cameras out, it isn't worth it. It is now nice for the people who need 3.2Mpix at 30fps but doesn't compare with the 3300 and 1920 for HD.

Machining:
This is also very cool - we have progressed to building cameras here. If people want, I would be happy to set up a web page to completed projects using our cameras.

TTFN,
Steve

Steve how much better color saturation would you say the Altasense has over the 3300? could you do a side by side test for me/us to see?
