Which cameras would you bring?

Question: Which cameras would you bring?

I'm traveling to Peru, which I hear that there is a lot of theft. Of course, there's theft in many places including where I live. I have two cameras.. canon 350D, and the sd700 is. Taking a poll from camera lovers who have traveled a bit..would you bring both cameras?
I'm am bringing the sd700, but debating about the 350D even though I LOVE the pictures. Not sure I want to lug it around... just out of curiousity and fun which one would you bring, or both??...

Preferred Solution: Which cameras would you bring?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Which cameras would you bring?

take the one that is easiest to use. leave the other home. no sense in carrying excess baggage. with airport security the way it is. the less you carry, the better off you will be. have a safe trip.

Is it just me or do you find digital still cameras or video cameras are lacking with the time? What I mean by that is video editing software is old and the hardware and software does not support 64 bit.

It seems every thing is going 64 bit now for some reason.But alot of the software is 32 bit like most software and hardware out there.The editing software is old .But if you go to the store most all new computers and OS are 64 bit.

Are 64 bit that much faster than 32 bit ?I know with 64 bit you can address more memory than 4GB of RAM.But I guess a CPU working with 64 bit can do more than 32 bit .
How do the still cameras or video cameras work on Windows Vista that is 64 bit?How are the new hardware and software out there work with 64 bit like the new editing software that is 64 bit?

sorry if my question is confusing but I really do not know what I'm talking about here.
 

Answer:still cameras or video cameras lacking with the time?

how do you know they don't support it? more and more every day there are new drivers coming out for 64bit. and with the 32bit not recognizing 4GB of ram. i read that when they come out with the full SP1 for vista. there's going to be a fix for the 32bit to recognize all the ram.

Not real sure if this is the right area but I will ask anyway.

Basically I would like to setup multiple web cameras and be able to view the images over the net? (For security - not PORN)
I am not real sure what would be the ideal method and have not been able to find any real helpfull information other than costs.

If anyone could point me in the right direction or offer any tips, advice, how to and what about - help, I would be very appreciative.

Basic idea I have would be to install cameras and means to capture video and connect to a pc that has internet access.

Now I know better and it CANNOT possibly be that simple.

Thanks before hand - wiLLis

Question: IP Cameras?

I'm thinking about getting video monitoring installed in our restaurants.

I have a vendor that wants to do it for about 100$/store per month. That's equipment, warranty and installation.

I feel that paying a few thousand a month is too much money for that kind of deal so I'm thinking about doing something myself.

I figure I need to monitor the following things.
4 cameras per location
The screen on the register itself (windows based).
The receipts printer.

This is what I think I can do -- the 4 cameras will be network cameras and I can access them from a remote location through a router --> Just use port forwarding. That doesn't seem too complex, but I have no idea what kind of hardware I'll need as far as cameras go, does any know who makes networkable video cameras?

The register it self I think I can use VNC if I need to, or some kind of screen-recording program. I bet I can find that myself but if anyone has experience with a product already, let me know.

Now this is a more tough problem. Currently the receipts printer is installed as a printer driver. I was thinking if there was a way to intercept that and not only print to the receipt printer, but also as a pdf or something so I could just ftp the receipts of the store of the day to a folder in a remote location. Does anyone know how to set up a "faux printer" that'll print to 2 source?

This should be a fun summer project.
 

Answer:IP Cameras?

For the camera part there are IP cams out there that support Power over Ethernet so they will run on a single cat5 cable. You only need to buy the power adapters for the ports.

For recording screens get a vid card that has TV out (which is now days all of them) and let XP mirror the screens. Hook up the TV out to a VCR or another comp with TV card that records them (You can use the very comp you are recording too). Not the most elegant way but works.

Question: Cameras

Was hoping to get an idea how to set up a camera that will feed a couple of TV's spaced about 100 feet apart.
This would be used for Karaoke and I currently have a regular security camera that I am using to capture the singers and send to one TV but the image quality is a joke.

I think I would need a better camera that what I am using and am open to suggestions. Are there any distance limitations in terms of line feeds or any other considerations that I am overlooking? These same concerns are also applied to audio.

Thanks.
 

Answer:Cameras

With my limited knowledge I will tell you how I would do it on a budget. I would put a small third TV in the mix – one with AV in and out connections. I would get a camera with AV out and connect to the TV. Then I would use something like the X-10 wireless video sender for $50. You would need a second receiver and I have no idea how much that is. A second alternative might be to use a laptop or desktop and send with unit something like the $70 unit from X-10, which also would need a second receiver. I’m not familiar enough with camcorders to tell you how to get the video to the computer – perhaps with a TV or capture card if the camcorder is analog. They are both listed on this page: http://www.x10.com/entertainment/index.html

If your two displays are large screen HD displays you would need more competent gear. I’ve used the $50 X-10 unit and it will transmit decent quality for short distances. 100 feet should be fine – especially if they are line of sight from the transmitter. The transmitter is somewhat directional, but a Y connector should let you use two transmitters if that becomes necessary.

Please can anyone advise me which is the better camera to buy ?Canon "EOS 400D" 10.1m pixel digital SLR cameraNikon "DSLR D60" 10.2m pixel digital SLR camera

Answer:SLR cameras

Andy i had this exact dilemma and opted for the Nikon D40 though less pixels (entry level dslr).Correct me if im wrong but if you go for the D60 you will be limited on lenses as they are afs.If you decide to go for the Nikon,make sure you save those few pounds and go for a VR lens.Though you can go for prime lenses with the Nikon D60 everything will have to been done in manual,this will restrict you some what.The kit lenses are very good on the Nikon,i have the 18mm-70mm and 70mm-200mm but have tried the VR....and they are better by a mile.In saying this,the Nikon D60 is an upgrade of the D40 and if the results of the D40 are anything to go by from an amateur like me....the D60 will take some beating for the money.Some shots with the D40 click here and im always playing with the settings rightly or wrongly lol :-))

Answer:IP Cameras

Before you can fix it you'll need to isolate the problem. Sure, it could be a router problem. It could be a computer problem. It could be a wireless issue if either camera or computer is connected by Wi-Fi. My top suspect is a camera problem.

Question: NVR and cameras

Looking at options, I have looked off and on, and never really got a warm fuzzy on other threads or posts so starting a thread here.

What I am after:

Outdoor cameras-should have IR. Do not need remote pan/tilt/zoom. Fixed is fine
At this point I am not sure on the location so vandal proof or not, not 100%. Let's assume they will be out of reach
NVR-after a lot of back and forth, I would rather have a dedicated box for this, meaning dedicated hardware/appliance
POE is a requirement

Now, I know there are many options of hikvision in terms of international or china builds, this is also an area I am not sure of. I am looking for at least 4 cameras and may go with more down the road. I'd appreciate any input from those who have used a few different models and actually used/deployed the equipment, and handled firmware updates as well.

My budget at this time is open, I am expecting to spend up to $200 a camera.
 

Answer:NVR and cameras

I run a DS-7608NI-E2/8P NVR with two DS-2CD2332-I 2.8mm, four DS-2CD2132-I 2.8mm and a DS-2CD2032-I 4mm.

The NVR has built in PoE, but the cameras are 802.11af so you can power it with any 802.11af switch.

Firmware upgrades are painless on both the cameras and NVR. Make sure you download the correct firmware file by verifying the model # listed.

I would buy the cameras and NVR from an authorized distributor or reseller due to the amount of china versions that are on Amazon, eBay, etc.

http://overseas.hikvision.com/us/distributionPartner.aspx?c_kind=43&c_kind2=45&c_kind3=56

The cameras should be running you between $100-150 depending on where you buy them from and if they are on sale. Like ADI has the DS-2CD2332-I-4mm on sale for $133.

I have used some shitty D-Link and TrendNet IP cameras and an analog 960H camera system before I made the move to HIKVision. I absolutely love HIKVision.

With all that said...Do you know what focal lengths that you want or need?

Question: Web cameras

Answer:Web cameras

Hi lbmest

No that setup seems ok, my uncle whos an avid skype user, has similar logitech hardware and it works fine, he uses Vista BTW.

One thing though a collegue in work mentioned to me last week, was when he set it up straight away a strange girl user name was in his listing, so off hand as I dont use Skype, check into if its possible to be removed from the Skype Directory... kind of one of the reasons I dont use Skype, Windows Live Messenger doesnt have this issue.

Just read a bit more on this and no way as far as I can see to be removed from the Skype directory, so anyone can search on a user name, but uncheck two notification windows in the options menu, "When someone calls me" and "Display a notification in the Windows tray when someone requests my contact details", this may aid in accidently adding contacts you dont want.

I'm trying to organize some home security cameras to be remotely accessed and am having some trouble. Router as well as camera support have been noneventful, so here I am again, (I guess I really need to donate here). I have a Linksys WRT150N Router with cable broadband, one hardwired computer and two wireless computers in the house. Cameras are one hardwired Trendnet TV-IP410 and two wireless TV-IP410W cameras. Configuration throught the router with 'port forwarding' has been sketchy at best but here is what I have ended up with...hard wired Cam 1 internet IP address is 71.xx.xxx.xxx and is routing through the default port of 80. The other two which are wireless, lets make this a bit easier and just say one other that is wireless assigned to port 82. This make make sense to someone else but I'm confused. I can remotely access the hardwired cam on the browser at it's IP address of 71.xx.xxx.xxx and it works fine! the other I can access but only by including the "http://" prefix and adding " :82 " to the end , which is the cams port. Is this odd? Should the cam2 (wireless) not be abled to be accessed on the browser directly at 71.xx.xxx.xxx:82?
They do have different static IP addresses on the local network as the first is 192.168.
1.240 (defaulted) and the second is 192.168.1.241. Local access on the second requires the http:// as well. ie. "http://192.168.1.241:82". Is this normal or have I fubar'ed the configuratio... Read more

Question: Digital cameras

I have had some correspondence on the above, but had decided to remain with a film SLR, because I was used to it, it suited my style and because, to get similar quality on a digital would be 2/3 times the price. As I use slides, I have no real need of the facility to manipulate shots on a PC.However, I have just returned from a short break in Gibraltar. That place must be the best kept secret of all time - it is great!. Same climate as Spain or Italy, but much more than a boring beach holiday. The people are friendly, the first language in English and the currency is Sterling. There is no Excise Duty or VAT, which means goods are incredibly inexpensive. For exanple, 5.25 for a litre bottle of Gin or Whisky!However, the point of this thread. In Main Street, there are a whole multiplicity of camera shops, with many digital cameras at rock-bottom prices, from Leicas down to the very basic models. If only I knew what I should be looking for in a digital, I think I might well have been tempted to buy one. So, now comes the question. What SHOULD the minimum requirement be? Looking at websites, all contain bags of technical data, but most of it goes over my head.I know PCA does a monthly review but I suspect this is confined to cameras submitted and there may be better cameras around that PCA have not seen.So, what is the minimum specification for an intermediate camera?

Answer:Digital cameras

Having said "don't specify actual cameras" for anything close to a film SLR in the digital world you are looking at 2000 upwards. If you want a really good digital camera that looks, works and feels like an SLR you can't go far wrong with the Minolta Z1. I am a professional photographer and that is the digital (as opposed to film) camera that I have.

Question: Digital Cameras

Hi,i was thinking of buying a digital camera. And i can get the canon ixus 500 for 230. What comments does anyone have on this camera? And what other camears is there out there that are as good or better than this one.Is it worth buying because of the price alone?

Answer:Digital Cameras

I know I am a bore about this but I would seriouswly weigh up the value of a very small size camera versus one that takes AA style batteries. Generally the proprietry batteries you get in very small cameras do not hold a very high charge (measured in MaH)and do tend to degrade as they get older. Rechargeable AA style batteries now go up to 2500MaH and, even if are caught out without spares, you can always get alkaline batts in an emergency. My last (and only) camera with a proprietry battery would last well less than a day on one charge whereas I can now go for many snaphappy days without changing.Also be carefull about claims that Lithium Ion batteries do not have any memory effect solve all these problems. For Digital Cameras, that draw very high power, this is not true.

Is there a certain kind of lens I should be using for this? I know wearing polarized sunglasses allows me to see "through" the water in creeks, is there some kind of filter or lens I can use that will have the same affect?

Thanks guys!

I want to buy a digital camera.which is the best one to buy?(preferred-sony/canon).I chose a canon 10MP camera costing Rs 9899.I dont know if canon is a good company.Can anyone suggest any more cameras?Price range-till Rs 10,000.
 

Answer:digital cameras (what to buy?)

Canon makes very good digital cameras. Many people think they are the best. I’ve never ended up buying a Canon because there was always something else with features I preferred. But if the Canon you are looking at has the features you want I doubt you will find a better camera.

As far as specific recommendations there is no way to guess what features and size you are looking for. The Canon A series for example probably takes the best photos for the price of anything on the market, but you can’t put one in your pocket. And I doubt many here are familiar with your market prices.

Can anyone help me with the camera server to static ip thing?

I can see the camera server on LAN fine, and i can see the web fine, but i cant see the camera server from a remote location on the web.

i have a static ip but entering that information into the server locks me out and i have to re-enter the default ip and port 80 settings to be able to talk to it again.

I'm running the AP software of both server and isp provided ST780 wireless router from my xp laptop, and i can individually talk to both via LAN.

There is no manufacturer advice other than open ports 5000 - 5002, tried that and it did nothing.

To me this sreams "ROUTER!!!!" and there are some things that are messing with my head! Firstly the ST780 KNOWS... that it has somethin plugged up its tail pipe but cant recognise it!!! In the software it shows a physical address and an ip address but they dont match and therefore it wont list the server as a device. Its either unknown or there is no entry.

So.... my questions to you fine people are ..... do i persevere with port forwarding? Does the Static ip info have to be entered into the server? or is it enough to forward from the static to the default lan ip and port 80 settings? How does this help the ST780 to recognise the server or should i be buying a router that cares!!!

Or am i 1 octet short of a full ip and missing the point completely????

Question: Video Cameras?

Hello- not sure if this is the right place to post this but I know we have a lot of knowledgeable people around here. I am looking for advice and suggestions on a relatively affordable video camera. I have not owned one for years but am about to have a new baby (18 years after the last one!! Technology has definitely changed!) and am looking to purchase a camera. I thought I might have found a great one albeit a bit out of my price range- the Canon HF20, but in reading reviews about it there seems to be some issues with your needing to have a fairly powerful computer to handle uploading and editing the files. I'm running XP Pro right now- not sure of too many other details as I just set up this hand-me-down computer a couple weeks ago, but it is a few years old and I doubt it's the fastest in the West. Oh- wait- I looked at the case and it does say it's a 2.6 GH Intel Celeron Processor. It had 256 MB ram but I added I think it was another 512. Not sure if this is sufficient to deal with the camera mentioned.

Anyway, I'm attracted to the idea of recording directly to hard-drive, but am open to suggestions if this isn't really the best way. I'd like something that works well indoors-- and I don't even know what they mean when they say that HF20 doesn't have a viewfinder- surely there is some way to see what your pointing at? Anyway- I look forward to y'all's advice-- and actually it wouldn't hurt to gather info as to peopl... Read more

Answer:Video Cameras?

When it says "no viewfinder" it means you have to use the LCD viewing screen as a viewfinder.

Not sure about others but I really struggle with the font and lack of breaking into paragraphs, probably why your question has not been answered.

I use my Fujifilm S2000HD for both still and video.
10 MP, 15 x zoom and it captures full resolution HDTV movies, length only limited by the memory card fitted.

Please humor an old man and give me your thoughts on this question.

Comparing two cameras:

Nikon D90: This is a 12-megapixel (native, not interpolated resolution) camera. Primary purpose is to convert about fifteen thousand personal family photos from 35mm slides to digital. After that project is finished, I will probably sell it.

Panasonic HDC-TM700K Camcorder: This is the camera I would use most and keep.

According to a reply from Panasonic, HDC-TM700K Camcorder is capable of 12-megapixel native resolution for still images (not interpolated).

Since the purchase of the D90 is for converting 35mm slides to digital and the Panasonic camcorder has the same resolution for still pictures, why should I not just get only the camcorder for the job and save dollars?

What differences would I see, if any?

What VGA info I should look for etc. It is for talking to family abroad usually.Anything Greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

Answer:WebCam Cameras

The highest resolution, in general, is 640x480 and you can get up to 30fps - but this might not be achievable with dialup.Any of the better Creative, Logitech, Philips etc will prove a good buy, although the D-Link NetEasy 350 offers an equivalent specification, has a proper CCD, yet costs under 27.I use one (did a swap with my son for my Creative VideoPlus Webcam as the D-Link gave problems, for some reason, with broadband) and it delivers exactly the same performance as the Creative.Only letdown is a thickish USB cable and a rather gaudy orange top to the webcam's case.You can get one at click hereIf you look this model up on the net, you won't find it under D-Link but Neteasy....:-)

Question: security cameras

Hi, i need a crash course on security cameras. my 13 year old daughter has been increasingly concerned about noises she keeps hearing out side of her bedroom window. i am 95% certain that it is simply small animal(s) doing what they do in the dark. as i have scared rabbits and cats out from that area several times, but she keeps thinking it is a person.
i do not need a large system, but it will have to be a "see in the dark" camera, and be able to be used year round. fortunately there is a nice overhang corner i can mount it in, which will allow a clear view of her exterior bedroom window area. wireless would be nice, but going up on a ladder to change batteries all of the time would not be acceptable.
i would prefer something that i would be able to view from my computer, as i do not own anything that is Apple or Android. i wouldn't mind another camera facing the front door, but that would be more of a luxury than a necessity.
in the odd chance that it happens that someone is out there, (we happened to have a convicted sex offender move into a home down the road a few houses, but i refuse to jump to that conclusion w/o proof) i would like to be able to capture a clear image to give to the police day or night. i am not sure how many pixels i would need for this.

I got a quote on the following, seems a bit steep, plus I want to buy them myself and I have an electrician that can install for much less than they are charging me.





Installation $596.00

4x LILIN LR7022E4
2 Megapixel 15 FPS - 1080P HD PoE Outdoor IP Bullet Camera 4mm Lens w/Built-In IR $1,196.00

1x LILIN NVR200L-4TB
LILIN 16-Channel, 200FPS Mid-Level NVR with 4TB Storage $979.00

1x LILIN ZLI-PMH-POE08130WT4
8-Port Fast Ethernet Switch with 4 PoE+ Ports and 4 LAN Ports $499.00

Security Camera System Total: $3,270.00Click to expand...


 

Answer:Surveillance cameras

How much of the work are you willing/able to do yourself?

You can source the cameras much cheaper. Search Hikvision on Google or eBay for a great line of quality but lower priced cameras.

A small PoE switch for 6 ports shouldn't cost more than $200.

For the NVR, take a look at a software package called "Blue Iris". it is cheap and can run fine on a mid-range MS system.

All told you should be able to do 6 cameras and an NVR for under $1500, under $1000 if you are aggressive in your shopping and willing to consider some "grey" sources for cameras and/or used equipment for the PoE switch/server.

Or - to go really cheap - just go to CostCo and buy their 4-camera setup and two additional cameras...you'll get out the door with a starter system for under $500.

I plugged the cable into the machine and XP said new hardware was found and being set up which it did just like normal. Only thing is, I don't get a USB storage device in My Computer which would allow me to browse and get the pictures. I went to the device and it shows my exact camera as being installed and working in the properties (Olympus D-230). I went to Olympus site and they got nothing there that helps. I switch plugs into the one where my scanner works and still same thing. Tried to update driver from device properties and it says there is none newer. There is no specific camera software to download from Olympus, just their proprietary imaging tool that costs money. In Scanner and printer wizard, it says it can't find any devices. Why would hardware profile display exact camera make and model and at the same time the device cannot be seen? Anyways, if anybody has the solution or a hint, I would appreciate it.

Does that camera have modes to choose from for how it behaves when connected via the USB port?
