Papywizard for Android?

Hi there, I just discovered this very interesting project, Python for Android: http://python-for-android.readthedocs.org http://kivy.org https://github.com/kivy/python-for-android As I don't own any Android device (nor iOS), I won't start the port of Papywizard for this plateform myself. But if some...

Re: Micro Python

Yes; I baked for 4 boards, so I will sooner or later give a try. But I have another project to port to this board, before.

The first step will be to switch to python3, as it is the version supported by Micro Python...

Micro Python

Hi folks!

I recently discoverd this great project:

I think it should be possible to run Papywizard on such board (with a much simple GUI, of course)...

Re: Preset File Location - Windows 7

Note that this dir is the one in the Papywizard package: it will be overwritten when you update Papywizard. Also, this is not here that Papywizard will save the changes in the configuration. Don't know where this damned file is under W7... I use an env var to point this location, and it may have cha...

Sphère complète avec une GoPro

Hello ! Comme on vient de m'offrir une superbe petite caméra Gopro Hero3 Silver, j'envisage de l'utiliser pour faire de la prise de vue panoramique sphérique. Quelqu'un connaît-il la meilleure façon de procéder ? Quelle orientation (verticale/diagonale...) utiliser ? Quel pattern de prise de vue ? M...

Again, it is nearly impossible to turn the motor from the camera side, due to high gearbox ratio. And don't do it, as it can brake the output gear. This is why there is a friction, there.

When you release what? Not sur to understand... As said, the friction needs to be adjusted so the camera stays in place, and does not slip. The large gearbox ratio maintain the camera, even when the motor is off.

No, the friction is between the output gear and the plate where you mount the camera. It does not increase the tork needed to turn the plate.

In fact, you can't move the gears by hands from the camera side, because of the tool high ratio. Doing this, you may apply a too high tork on the last gear stage, and brake teeth... This also means that the camera, even unbalanced, does not fall when you switch off the head. So, you *have* to adjust...

There is a friction mecanism, to avoid braking the gears in case the head is stopped by something. It is good to let the friction as soft as you can. On the yaw axis, there is no problem, even if it is very soft. On the pitch axis, it should no slip by itself under the load, that's all. So, if your ...

At least, Papywizard does not handle this application; triggering shutter is only done after a move, not during a move...

But if you use the original hand controller (which comes with the Panogear as with Merlin/Orion), you can still use the original features.

Pour un pano pris au fisheye, avec seulement une douzaine d'images, le module d'import est inutile (voir même nuisible, semble-t-il).

Balance tes photos direct, et laisse faire APP ;)

Oui ; il existe le même pour le yaw (dans le compartiment des piles). Il faut y aller mollo, et vérifier que si tu essayer de tourner de manière un peu forte la tête, la friction se déclenche bien, sans péter les engrenages. à‡a doit entrainer le réducteur si tu tournes lentement, mais pas si tu le ...

Ok, donc il faut que tu serres l'écrou du pitch. PAs trop, pour que ça reste un peu glissant au cas où ça bloque vraiment sur un obstacle.

Tu veux dire que le moteur ne tourne plus lorsque tu vas vers le zenith ? Ce n'est donc pas un problème de glissement, car dans ce cas, le positionnement se ferait bien sur la bonne valeur théorique, mais l'appareil serait, lui, décalé. Il faut donc vraiment équilibrer. Je n'ai jamais eu le problème...

Tu peux essayer de bloquer un peu plus l'écrou. Mais le mieux est quand même de l'équilibrer... Sinon, tu risque d'endommager les pignons.

Well, in fact, you must save the file using the same encoding as the one you put on the first line. I think it should work with any encoding (note that I never tried, but there is not reason it won't work).

Tu parles vraiment des EXIF (infos dans chaque image), ou du fichier que génère Papywizard ? Dans les EXIF, il me semble que tu devrais avoir la vraie focale (10mm), mais dans Papywizard, tu as la focale équivalente sur un capteur plein format. Dans ton cas, le capteur a un facteur de multiplication...

Mmm, I think you had problems while downloading and/or saving it. Your file is a mix between xml and rtf!
