HQ Camera and Canon EF-S lenses

Since I have some Canon EF-s lenses for my DSLR cameras and the HQ camera has the facility to change lenses, I did some experiments to see if the combination makes sense. So I got a HQ camera with the 6mm and 16mm lens, a Raspberry 3B+ from my RPi stock and 3d printed the Canon EF to C mount adapter...

Re: Best Operating System for Raspberyy Pi?

The answer of course depends on what you want to do with the Raspberry Pi, what application/purpose. There is no 'best' without this question. Start with that question and you may get a better answer than 'Raspbian' Raspbian is the easy answer since it covers most purposes. runs on all Pi's and is w...

Re: Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera

Hope some one makes some 'camera review' quality pictures. Compared with camera's in the same price range (16 mm + new camera + raspberry) and not with the other Pi camera's.

I have seen on twitter some photos made by biglesp with the 16 mm lens and they are not convincing yet.

Re: Use micro USB as UART on PI Zero for external wifi module

Sure the USB wireless adapter works after your rewiring the USB and disabling wifi?

Just plugging in a wireless adapter will give you a second wifi channel that works on a Pi, if you ave set the country right. Once that works try to disable the onbaord wifi.

what does lsusb tell you?

Re: Use micro USB as UART on PI Zero for external wifi module

Using a USB serial adapter is required here and those works fine on the RPi. Nearly all types (FTDI, CH340, PL2303) are autodetected and deliver a ttyUSB0 device. Check the voltages of the D1 Mini UART and choose your USB serial adapter if it needs 3.3V or 5V. And do not be confused what is called R...

Pimoroni sent out an advertising email confirming this. The Pi 4 1 GB is history, glad I have one for my collection!
The 2 GB sells fort the now standard price of a Pi.

Re: Transfer an operating set up on microSD to external USB3 SSD drive (RP 4)

Copying a running OS, it may work, but with an open database?

Remove your current SD, Boot from fresh SD with OS, add an external SD card reader, insert your SD with MysSQL system in that reader, copy to hard disk drive.

Re: Using raspberry pi 4 B as an everyday desktop?

Yes, the RPi 4B can be used for the tasks you mention. At least the 2 GB version looks like a good candidate. It will not be a real portable solution a laptop offers, more a desktop replacement. If portability and ease to setup (Raspbian and the firmware are updated all the time now in these early d...

As a counter experience: I recently put a fresh Win 7 installation onto a PC and then upgraded it to Win 10. The whole process took almost 24 hours. Including hunting around on the net for drivers and such so as to get Win 7 into a state that it could connect to the net and upgrade itself. Contrast...

Update your software on the card. The A+ is supported only since a month or so..

Re: 3.5 tft lcd very laggy low frame rate

If the driver delivers an image that means you are in luck: the driver is functional. Most of these tft displays come with closed drivers and/or just an OS image you cant update. These tft's are not very fast, due to low spi transfer rates and not optimized hardware and driver. Have a look at what y...
