How to Test Your Lens | B&H Explora

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/explora/photography/tips-and-solutions/how-to-test-your-lens

Saved by uncleflo on January 6th, 2019.

So, you just bought a shiny, new, and maybe expensive, lens for your camera, and being the savvy consumer, you did your homework. You pored over customer reviews on the B&H Photo website, read online reviews splattered all over the Internet, grabbed a copy of every photo magazine that reviewed the lens, bookmarked dozens of websites, and now have the lens’s MTF curve charts burned into your retinas. Now, your lens is here and it is time to go out shooting. Honestly, not a problem. Your lens should be as good as it can be and, as photographers, we want to take photos. So, stop reading and go out and make some photographs! Still here? OK, let me tell you why you might want to test that lens yourself. The main reason is that even with today's precision computer-controlled manufacturing techniques, there are variations in each and every lens that rolls off an assembly line. This means that some examples will be better than others. Some lenses will be outstanding and others will make you wonder if all of those glowing reviews you read online were completely bogus.

Lens Tests: A Simple Method

http://www.zen20934.zen.co.uk/photography/LensTests/simplemethod.htm

Saved by uncleflo on January 6th, 2019.

This is a simplified subjective method of testing lenses optical sharpness. This should not be confused with tests for focus accuracy and discrimination in a 3D environment, that is a totally different issue although often confused by the inexperienced. A focus accuracy test is suggested here Focus Test. The advantage over this method, compared to just taking a shot of a garden etc, is elimination of variables such as subject and camera movement, insufficient depth of field, flatness of field and variations in focus location. It uses a nice consistent high contrast subject to make comparisons easy; checking sharpness on general photographic views is not very easy. As the method is subjective, it is worth testing against a known good lens for comparison.

Best codec for game, video and screen recording - Bandicam

https://www.bandicam.com/support/tips/best-codec/

Saved by uncleflo on January 6th, 2019.

What is the best video codec for game recording, video recording, and screen recording? If you use a high-compression codec, you can get a small video file, but the encoding speed might be slower. If you use a high-quality codec, you can get the best quality video, but the video file size might be larger. If you use a high-speed codec, you can reduce CPU usage, but the video file size might be larger. So, you have to choose the best video codec by yourself to meet your recording needs.

Comparing x264 “RF” settings in Handbrake (examples) | mattgadient.com

Saved by uncleflo on January 6th, 2019.

Here, I’m taking a look at various RF settings in Handbrake, both in terms of visuals and filesize. I started with encodes from the “24” DVD (Season 6, Episode 1). If you have the same DVD and are looking to reproduce this test, the following settings were used: I tested the following RF values (listed in Handbrake under “Constant Quality”: 0, 10, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32 I’ll start with a few screenshots at different RF values. There’s a video below too, but it comes with a bit of a caveat so might not show everything well for you. Pictures should work for nearly everyone. Note that the first one (RF0) is for reference (lossless). Worth noting that x264’s psychovisual enhancements (trellis, etc) do a pretty good job of keeping detail where you’d notice it (the face), at the expense of the stuff you normally wouldn’t notice while watching (like those background areas). Of course, this only goes so far – once the RF value is high enough, there’s no saving Jack’s facial features from the effects of compression!

Saved by uncleflo on January 6th, 2019.

The hotel changed its name to Crocker’s Folly in 1987. In 2004, the pub was placed on the English Heritage Buildings ‘At Risk’ Register and the future looked bleak until it was purchased once again, by The Maroush Group. 'Now we’re proud to show off the Victorian design in our beautiful, Grade II listed building'. Our special saloon bar still features the same 50 kinds of marble, plus Romanesque columns and carved mahogany. The Lord's Room (or dining area) even has the original high ceilings, grand fireplace and spectacular crystal chandelier! We can't wait for you see the way this space has been transformed into the Crocker’s Folly we love today! We’re sure Frank Crocker would be proud.

Youtube video quality and bitrate… What kind of compression does YouTube use? Every time we post a video on Youtube will ALWAYS recompressed. Youtube DO NOT leaves intact the video posted. YouTube, and a few of the other video services, also automatically deliver different video codecs to different platforms like iOS or Windows. Youtube recommends sending videos with high bitrates but after several tests I have verified that it does not change the quality beyond a certain bitrate, it is more important the quality of the source of acquisition rather than the bitrate. How much does Youtube compress video sent? How much the bitrate is allocated to video based on resolutions, youtube will assign a different bitrate to each resolution, and use 2 types of CODEC (H264 and VP9)

ISO 12233 Test Chart

https://stephen-westin.com/misc/res-chart.html

Saved by uncleflo on January 6th, 2019.

In 2000, the International Standards Organization adopted ISO Standard 12233: Photography -- Electronic still-picture cameras - Resolution measurements for the measurement of camera resolution. This standard is protected by copyright, but the design of the associated test chart seems not to be protected; its description has been available on the Web in an Excel spreadsheet. I have semi-manually converted this to an Adobe Illustrator file which is displayed here. In 2014 and again in 2017, the ISO revised the standard and the chart below was replaced by several new ones. Those new charts are not available here. In principle, you should be able to print this chart and perform resolution tests on your camera. The reality isn't that simple; there are lots of subtleties having to do with focus distance, quality and contrast of your printer, evenness of illumination, surface reflections, etc.

An Introduction to Lean Canvas – Steve Mullen – Medium

Saved by uncleflo on January 4th, 2019.

As an entrepreneur, one of the most important tasks you can perform is getting your idea(s) out from your head into a tangible format so that you can communicate that with others. In the past, this usually meant a well-researched business plan, that would usually take weeks (more like months) to create. I turn to the Lean Canvas to help me quickly formulate possible business models, product launches, campaigns and variations of, and communicate this with my stakeholders for my Lead Flow Method work. Having the Lean Canvas as a visual guide made this part “communicating the model/idea” so much more effective — and I think the most valuable function of the tool. The problem with business plans for startups & entrepreneurs are that they’re a waste of time, don’t get me wrong a well-researched business plan is important but only at the right stage of your business (usually when you’re in growth/investment). This quote from Steve Blank sums up this point in case: “Business Plan: a document investors make you write, that they don’t read”. The key fundamental to Lean methodology is the elimination of waste — this includes time, processes, inventory and more. So as a lean startup you need a quicker way to get ideas out of your head, you need to stay lean & avoid waste — so, it’s time to introduce Lean Canvas.

Linux Daemon Writing HOWTO

http://www.netzmafia.de/skripten/unix/linux-daemon-howto.html

Saved by uncleflo on January 4th, 2019.

A daemon (or service) is a background process that is designed to run autonomously,with little or not user intervention. The Apache web server http daemon (httpd) is one such example of a daemon. It waits in the background listening on specific ports, and serves up pages or processes scripts, based on the type of request. Creating a daemon in Linux uses a specific set of rules in a given order. Knowing how they work will help you understand how daemons operate in userland Linux, but can operate with calls to the kernel also. In fact, a few daemons interface with kernel modules that work with hardware devices, such as external controller boards, printers,and PDAs. They are one of the fundamental building blocks in Linux that give it incredible flexibility and power. Throughout this HOWTO, a very simple daemon will be built in C. As we go along, more code will be added, showing the proper order of execution required to get a daemon up and running.

If a user wants to execute a command, he has to first log in into a system. But some users in the system have /bin/false or /sbin/nologin set as a default shell in the /etc/password file. If I change /bin/bash to /bin/false in case of my user, I won't be able to log in into the system, so I also won't be able to run commands. But the shellless users do it anyway: How can a user without a shell execute a command? In POSIX, every running process has three User IDs (UIDs) associated with it; the real UID, which identifies the user who launched the process, the effective UID, which is used to determine what resources the process can access, and the saved Set-User-ID (SUID), which is the effective UID the process had when it started (at the point of the last exec() call). Of these, the effective UID is the most significant, since it is the one used when determining access control decisions regarding the process.
