LinusTechTips shoutout to a Blur Busters invention!

Post by Chief Blur Buster » 01 Aug 2019, 11:40

Check this video out -- LinusTechTips shoutout to one of my inventions that I released for free.

phpBB [video]


Jump to 1:25 in the video for a good shoutout.

For readers not familiar with our invention, see Pursuit Camera 101 as well as Reviewers Using Pursuit Camera. I have a peer reviewed conference paper along with NIST.gov, NOKIA and Keltek.

Basically, a pursuit camera (tracking camera) is a good stand-in for a moving eyeball (tracking eye), to more accurately photograph WYSIWYG display motion blur. My invention simply makes it possible to do this with a cheap camera, without spending a fortune on a motorized camera.

The temporal test pattern that I invented -- makes it possible to make a manually-propelled camera as accurate as a motorized camera, simply by allowing you to throw away bad photographs, until you got a perfectly-tracked photograph.

Thanks!

Just posted an article that provides a simpler web page explanation of a pursuit camera:

There are also new instructions to test it yourself with a hand-waved iPhone or Android!

Zero cost pursuit camera, without a rail -- a new option for hobbyists and forum members!

Oh! That's nice! I tried yesterday but with photos and got not too good result xD .
Thanks :) .


(Offtopic) By the way Chief Blur Buster, sent you a PM with something i think can be interesting but didn't want to post it here on the forums because it had a piracy ( :oops: ) website. Feel free to ignore it if you don't find it useful, but just wanted to be sure you read it ;) .
