Re: PI 3 and printers

Actually the best printers are HP supported by HPLIP Software: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/supported_devices . HPLIP sold me on Linux when I first tried it out as a desktop OS- one driver for every HP printer, never had a problem with it on x86 or ARM devices- just recognises the printers ...

Multiple zeros running off one shutter sounds like a great idea for multispectral, and also for stereoscopic photography :o

Re: Raspberry Pi power cable

Also, as long as it provides 5V, the rated current can be over 2500mA/2.5A- that number is the maximum that the adapter is able to supply.

Re: Pi NO IR Camera for plants

There are quite a few NoIRs floating around, some for 'art' photography (which is what I mostly use mine for), some for scientific imaging. Here's a test I did using a red filter (red eye from a red/blue stero glasses set), which might work better than a blue: http://66.media.tumblr.com/97843671458c...

Re: raspberry pi 3 box differences

The one in the lower image runs a little faster because of its vertical orientation. Gravity will be helping the electrons drop down the pcb. Not true. ..at least not for me in the Southern Hemisphere. I had to rotate the PCB 180 degrees to get the electrons to fall in the correct, Northern Hemisph...

Re: Recommended IR filters for Pi-NoIR

The blue filter blocks out red and green light, but lets blue (and IR) through. So you end up with the following light on the three channnels of the sensor: R: IR only G: IR only B: IR + blue light I don't have shots with an IR-block filter, but here are some shots with no filter, the blue filter an...

Bravia Sync (on my Sony, anyway) isn't a complete implementation of CEC. It might not be sending the right signal to your Pi for startup

Re: which RASPBERRY PI should i buy?

Unless the reduced size and increased power efficiency of the A+ or the (difficult to source) zero are important to you, it's a choice between the B+ and 2B. The 2 is much more powerful for practically the same price, so it's almost always the right one to get

Re: Meet Raspberry Pi Zero: the $5 computer

I would have loved a CSI interface on this, too- it would mean being able to make really a comfortably-sized compact near-IR camera. BUT the A+ is only twice the footprint, and I realise that not everyone who buys a Pi buys one to build cameras. For the moment, I'm glad we have connectivity options,...

Re: Rpi Noir the Film attached on Lens

Hi Robinus, the cheapest way to get a pure infrared, monochrome image is to use the dark, exposed part of colour negative film- two layers is thick enough for my PiNoir to show a pure black and white image. You could also use a 720nm or 850nm photographic filter but these cost more and are difficult...

Pinoir infrared results

I recently completed a compact camera with a PiNoir sensor and a filter carousel to change filters. Here's an album with some pure infrared and blue-filtered infrared shots - on Flickr and some shots below: https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5600/15578001401_1af320080f.jpg DCIM188 https://farm4.staticfl...

Re: The Raspberry Pi Model B+ Q&A thread

Excited about using this one - USB HDD compatibility and tidier port layout makes for a nice HTPC.

Curious as to whether we can expect the model A to be upgraded to an improved power supply any time soon?

Will do Trevor.
These seem pretty pricey as replacement parts, but I got one with my new laptop, so it's nice to know it works with the pi, given how spotty support is for USB->ethernet dongles generally
