The original story:
"When I've got my very first android I was downloading any shit from Play Store. There was app called pattern security or something like that. The app was taking selfies everytime power button was pressed several times and then photo would sent to email. One day I left my old phone at home and at the office this is the photo i've received."12
Large corporation. CEO tells everyone to attend this mandatory meeting via the internet.
I work remotely. I can't log in, meeting is full. But our colleagues have made a parallel meeting just for us in the meantime, where I could hear them make fun of the meeting, which is basically the CEO showing some Powerpoint slides to a room with 10 people. Nobody can either see the slides (bad camera or connection) or hear the CEO (crap microphone). 1000+ people watching this "mandatory" meeting that lasted for an hour. Nobody had any idea what it was about in the end. Just slides and muffled voices.
Just semi-finnished my raspberry pi project, a peephole camera! So u can check wether u want to open door not.34
*permission popup asking for contacts/telephone permissions*
*installs Open Camera*
Really, fucking phone/contact permissions to take pictures?!
Yeah fuck right off.27
My boss has a camera in the office for "security" reasons and I happen to be just right under it, exposing my computer screens to it. So I wrote a script that sends me an email whenever the camera port is accessed.14
The inside of my coffee cup looked too pretty,had to stop to admire and click.
Wish my phone had a better camera.54
When I still studied, quite some people found me paranoid.
One of my friends started whispering 'NSA is watching' whenever he walked by me and after a while, whenever any of my friends were near me AND near a camera or whatsoever, they all whispered that same phrase.
Then I thought fuck it and just joined with whispering that. So throughout the whole day everyone would whisper that around me and I just participated 😆10
I never understood Snapchat.
- Its a text messaging app with all the useful features removed
- Its a camera app that deletes all the photos you take with it
- Its a news app that only shows you clickbait9
If someone wants to put a Sticker on their camera so noone can spy on you...
How about piping this image to your cam?7
Not a dev post, just wanted to share :) just for your viewing pleasure - My first pics taken using a low budget camera and ‘scope.11
Just made a laser sentry tower for my cats. Next up is adding some tracking so it can play with them by itself while I'm at work and after that I'm adding a Wi-Fi module and camera so that i can also play with them while I'm at work... I couldn't resist using a mouse to top it off 😂17
Programmer boyfriend says he misses me, wants to talk to me and wants us to video call.
He codes on camera instead of talking with me. 😂10
Apparently this little music player has no transmitter, receiver, microphone nor camera, pity on you NSA!12
I had to stop developing hybrid android applications with Ionic and start developing native.. I was given 1 week to present an app or they would hire an external developer.. I knew nothing about Java or Android development and in 4 days I already have a working, hardware scanner integrated, API calling, camera picture taking,.. Application! My brain hurts and I'm feeling like a zombie, but hey.. I'm proud of myself! :D15

An app that lets you turn on the camera on someone's laptop to see if they're around. I'm not even kidding. She said it would be a social media thing... creeper.3
An entire night I've spent on this shit.. preparing wires, soldering them on the motherboard, and finally connecting everything up to current meters, my PC's USB port and a lithium cell from my old Doogee phone that I still had laying around. All in the hopes to get an adb shell. But all in vain.. the turd doesn't even want to boot up. What a fantastic waste of time 😑
(Apologies for the terrible picture quality btw, this tablet's camera is absolute garbage)15
While working on some improvements to camera system I accidentally made pretty cool transition to the rooms.5
This is my first IoT project. It's pretty simple, but I've been very happy with the results thus far.
About this time last year, someone got into our garage and rifled through my wife's car.
I have a camera in my garage, and a Phillips Hue motion detector. Using the Hue's excellent API, I have a perl script that checks for motion every couple of seconds, and starts capturing from the camera via RTSP if it does. That video is then staged, ready to be uploaded to a digital ocean droplet if I click on a link in the mailgun-powered email that's then sent to me and my wife, along with a preview GIF of the video, created through the same ffmpeg process that pulled the capture from the camera.
Here you can see me getting home from work.23
Just tried washing my S8.
Works completely fine with speakers and camera, microphone, etc
During the process, it said that water was detected in the charging port, so I had to wait 10 minutes to charge until the port dries.
P.S. How do they detect water???24
I recently had the problem with my Galaxy S8 that my camera won't focus. Searched for solution. Found one which said: "Just hit the side of your phone when the camera is on."
Problem fixed, camera focuses again.
I like this kind of problem fixing.2
Friend: I bought a new phone.
Friend: It's really fast coz it has 3gb ram!!
Me: okay... Other specs? Cpu? Camera?
Friend: 13 MEGAPIXELS!
Me: yeah but other specs?
Friend: doesn't matter! The photos are of 8mb!
Me: yeah. Best phone ever. 😑😓11
Good fucking God non-technical iPhone owners are such a fucking cancerous group
"You're just mad because you're broke"
"Lol broke boy."
"That potato ass camera though"
"Shut up before I take your battery out."
Like fucking Christ what an autistic buncha fucking brainless monkeys. We should have a Holocaust for ignorant cunts like them.30
So my thesis is coming to its end. The new pipeline seems to be working. We get higher fps (~20) on bigger input images. In addition for control, camera capture and inference, we can now also stream the images from the drone's camera. So we made a video from the nano-drone's point of view. The weird thing on my forehead is the marker we use for the tracking system so we can compare the inference to the GT.
Iphone 8: no headphones

Finally got myself a Lytro Illum!
I,v been wanting to buy one since it came out but the company who made it closed down in 2015..
Thoose fuckers just thrown everything in the trash and set it on fire, software, firmware, mobile app etc.. no open source, no archives, your expensive camera is now a paper weight! You’r welcome!
So i got myself a new hobby, started reverse-engineering the fuck out of it, luckily it’s based on android (api17), i have adb and it’s running a hidden DHCP server too so it’s coming along nicely :D
I’m planning to make a camera control mobile app for it and maybe some faster image processing, wifi sharing etc..
I love beeing in home office :D20
So this was only a few weeks ago. A client told us to turn our Android/iOS app into an app compatible with his phone - it needed to work online/offline and it needed to be able to take photographs. We didn't have much to go on but after a few calls we figured out he was using a very old Nokia (Snake era) that didn't even have a camera.
The hardest part was getting him to understand why we couldn't make the app.7
Got a new monitor
1. So big. 21:9 ratio, can put two IDEs at the same time, and it is more than enough.
2. My phone's camera is not working, so I can't post a pic of my workspace......
But here is the picture that can give you the feeling28
I eh... was once munching on nutela straight from the jar while on a call only realised arpund 10 mins into the call that my camera was on and everyone could could see me eating straight from the jar (without a spoon)10
People: I will never put one of those smart speakers in my home! You're basically just putting in a microphone that will spy on you!
Also People: Hang on I have to grab my phone/high-fidelity microphone/high resolution camera/GPS tracker/Data Aggregator and make sure I have it with me literally everywhere I go, because who knows when I will want to comment on a cute picture of a cat!?16
Most... Awkward... Video call... Ever!
Ended about 7 minutes ago. This one guy... Seriously! I mean... 🤷♂️ Everyone thought he's just uncomfortably open but when he finally got out of the shower he panicked, screamed like a girl, fell down and covered his camera asking: "Guys, when you were talking just now... Was there anything... Like... *Weird* on my stream?"10
Dev Badass Rant
There are two occasions really:
1) For our C++ project in the third semester, we had to build any kind of C++ application. Guys in team of 4-5 built record keeping systems and calculators and one even made a Tic-Tack-Toe app. My friend and I, just the two of us, made a simple program that plays Rock Paper Scissors with you. With the power od OpenCV, it used the camera to track your hand movement, predicts your next move using contours, and displays the winning move as the computer's move.
For example, if you play Rock, the computer would predict that you were gonna play rock and display paper as it's move. It wasn't perfect, but it was ours, right from scratch. When it worked at the presentation, I was swell with pride. 😂
2) I was interested in game dev so I started Unity. The first tutorial in Unity you find is the web series by Unity about rolling a ball. You simply make a platform and control the ball with your keyboard and the camera follows your ball. You also make pick ups and get points based on that. So I started there, finished the tutorial, added a few walls, made edible and non edible pick ups, dimmed the entire scene, adjusted the camera angles, transferred controls to mobile gyroscope and added a few other things and voila! MazeBall was born. It has only one level and I thought it was pretty shit.
I decided to show it to a friend and when I showed it to my mate (the one who I worked with in the C++ project), my other classmates saw it and were impressed. Like so impressed a couple of them transferred it to their phone and took home with them. 😂 Was inspired to improve.4
Why doesnt devRant have small sticker / camera cover?
I think that would be neat. 10/10 would use.2
Just told a colleague that I don't own a PC, laptop or tablet for home use. Look on his face was priceless, like he couldn't fathom how I live with nothing more than a low end Android phone. I would have taken a picture but the camera app takes like two minutes to load and shoot.9
Any Rick & Morty's fans in here? These are my new stickers for my power bank.
(Sorry for the shitty quality my camera lens is broken)8
Working for a company that micro manages, my boss asked me to build a script that calculates hours employee is not on his seat through camera feeds.
Received a mail today that my first weeks deficit are 7 hrs.25
Absolutely no one:
Microsoft: "What about if our camera app stops recording as soon as its window is minimized because there is no such thing as people filming themselves reading from screen?"
You have to be impressed by the ability of these fucking morons to make common use cases artificially hard to do with their software.3
I just spent an hour trying to connect to a camera server and kept running into a ton of problems.
And... I forgot to enable the camera on the robot.. dammit.2
So this is a huge fancy screen showing movie times and marketing stuff at my local cinema.
// TODO: get a better camera phone8
Best work prank?
Get a random friend to burst into my home office during a zoom call, wearing a ski mask, gun in hand, speak foreign language, and drag me out of the room. Have another masked friend go up the camera and threaten to kill me if my coworkers go to the police. Disappear for a week, then email my boss saying I need 100k or they’ll start killing my family members one by one, take the money, then go on vacation while I fill out job applications. Get a new job and repeat the prank every few months until I retire.6
So I'm looking to buy a drone for my internship company to find people during floods. And damn these companies suck balls.
You want to use API for onboard image processing?
Buy a €3500 drone
Add €1100 processor stuff
Add €850 camera
Tomorrow Halloween is being celebrated in many nations as you might know. So we do in germany. Given that in Germany tomorrow is a national Holiday, the company skipped work today, with me being on call.
My On-Call time almost was over so I got ready to party (getting into my costume), not expecting any further calls.
I finished dressing up, still had some time, so I dug into coding a bit, as a costumer called. A customer from china. As I got told later on China does not celebrate Halloween in October and they do in another way.
So I set there, accepting the call, with my Camera set to autostart (Company policy).
As a monk.
With a bleach white face.
I was greeted by a man starring me "into the eyes". Took a good 1-3 secs til we bursted out in laugher. One of the funniest calls I had so far 😂 (and a short one, thanks China-Man)2
Oh fuck the ROM compiled on first try. WTF ?
Well surely it wont boot.
//5 minutes later after coffee brake.
Oh fuck it booted up no fucking way.
Well but at least something is in place. Wifi not working BT, Camera, Audio.
OK i was worried what did i do wrong since it booted on first try.2
Trying to build a mobile first application that relies on camera and geolocation data but use drupal to do it.... ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS .. WTF is this shit?! ... let me nail in this screw with a banana.2
Alright I have to rant about this.... Yesterday I taught my grandma how to take a screenshot.... Few hours later I see her clicking pictures.... When I looked closely I see she has her camera app open and she's taking screenshots instead of clicking pictures.... "Screenshots are clearer" it seems.... 😂😂😂 I was like....4
Huge dev-team presentation today with YouTube livestream link available to all clients.
Management wanted us to test our laptops, connections and cables to the bone, so that every computer will work 100% while the stream is running.
You know what didn't work?
The goddamn streaming camera device.1
Yeah, an industrial KUKA robot arm carrying a Red camera, which is controlled by an Xbox controller via an iMac running Windows. Yeah, MKBHD is great.
Some time ago I went for a job interview (Unity3D Dev). I have little experience in this field and never thought that I would get this job but wanted to gain some and thought that it would be a great opportunity.
So after the interview, which was great and I really enjoyed it, I've been tasked with making a simple minigame. Only requirements were that there have to be player controls, character must avoid obstacles and camera must be moving with player's progress. I've made a little spin on those. In 2d minigame I've created you are piloting simple (made out of 3d primitives) rocket. You have to avoid randomly spawned platforms. If you hit one, you explode. You also die, if you hit a wall or fall out of camera and hit Destroyer. Camera is constantly moving as long as you are moving. The spin is that you have very limited fuel. To regain it you have to land on said platforms with your thrusters. It took me around 12h to make this game. The only reason I know it is because they wanted this info. I've learned a bit while working on this minigame and had a lot of fun. It was a great impuls to start learning gamedev again and stop stagnation I fell in when I started my studies and work.
Today I've got response. Obviously I didn't get the job. They took more experienced person and I totally understand that. But there's more. They were so great to give me pretty extensive review of what was done good, what could be done better and how to gather more experience. They said that the game met their expectations and was written well. That's great, because I was worried that it would be bad since I haven't worked on graphics at all.
So, at least I got an impulse to start learning and maybe I'll even go for some game jam!4
I didn't even know what photography is a month ago. Then I was going on a road trip with my girlfriend so I bout a camera. Didn't read the manual just watched bunch of videos and realized it was just tuning parameters. Now I'm the master.6
Remember when a phone was marketed as a phone and not a camera or some personal secretary?
Pepperidge farm remembers...
But seriously can we just get a phone marketed to people as a phone?
Like people in ads for the pixel 2 ask "so it's a phone?" and the s9's whole marketing thing was camera, camera, camera!
Really shits me up the wall when companies do shit like that for tech -,-21
Our boss has a camera in the office to "monitor" us, the developers.
He tries to monitor our movements and record the things we say.
I'm curious, do other people do this?
I find it annoying.24

So i just read an article by The Verge on some good and bad things about the pixel 2.
Listed as a con: "Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL... have the same camera"
HOW THE FUCK IS THAT A BAD THING!?
So it's bad that they don't cut down the camera on the cheaper phone to make the XL more appealing?
I really don't get wtf they're on about...20
Well, the coolest thing that's public?
Non-public: I also once had a Raspberry Pi 2 placed on top of a bus station with a powerbank (and a little rain protecting covers) and a camera module, with a little piece of image analysing software that would notify me when my bus is coming.
This worked via Google Cloud Messaging. Initially I wanted to update that to Firebase Cloud Messaging, but I decided that I didn't need that system anymore and decided to give the Raspberry Pi 2 to a friend instead.14
I just bought a cable and a camera mount online. Can't wait for all the cable and camera mount ads shown the next few weeks.1
Someone ask to me as a security engineer.
Bro : what do you think about most secure way to authenticate, i read news using fingerprint no longer safe?
Me : yes they can clone your fingerprint if you take a photo with your fingerprint to camera.
Bro : so what is the other way to authenticate more secure and other people can't see in picture ?
Me : D*ck authentication is more secure now, other people can't see your d*ck pattern right?10
What's the mute for, if random apps blast their camera sounds anyway, yes scanbot you're one of those assholes.3
LineageOS13.0 on my old device. Im coming to fix all your bugs.
All that isnt working.
Lets go without sleep all night to fix it.3
So I managed to correctly project a bounding box in an image through like 3 coordinate systems until I transformed it to an angular aperture in the base frame. So now I can detect people in the rgb camera and then block the lidar readings corresponding to the people when I run my localization algo :)15
On Monday i have a Skype Interview.
Now i've bought a green screen because i thought that would be fun for showing my design stuff live as a virtual webcam. But this stupid Java 6 SE "Chroma Key Live" programm does not recognise any camera... and it's so ugIy... I hate java gui's.... :-/5
So my company was building a software to allow users to use a screen without the screen being touch itself.
It was made using a camera above the screen and then with openCV detect where the hand was.
Anyway I had to test it on the place.
And the place was a factory where they did produce pipes.
It's the biggest company in my city, and yet I was there, in the break room, coding a raspberry in winter in a factory.
The only source of heat was the fire used to melt the metal
That was literally awesome2
You know you have a good job when your manager gives you permission to watch porn on a hololens while on camera5
Blood, sweat and tears went into this because I wrote my code extremely bad so it became a huge clutter.
Will refactor some day, but I'm happy with the result!10
Just in case you thought you and your tech job were weird I give you:
Herpetologist: I caught a turtle here in Costa Rica.
Camera man: Cool. What kind is it?
H: this is the white eared red footed mud guppy. See what's interesting is that it has white sides of its face. And red feet. And lives in Costa Rica. In the mud. It is not a guppy though. Guppies are fish.
C: Cool and why is it important?
H: It's a white eared red footed mud guppy.
C: what does it do?
H: It's a turtle.
C: yeah but is it endangered? Venomous?
H: Nope. Just a regular old turtle.
C: so you just ran 50 miles and dove in to a random body of water that probably contained malaria and herpes to catch a regular turtle.
H: well it's not a regular turtle
C:(glares) it isn't?
H: it is. But it's a white eared red footed mud guppy.
C: so why did you catch it?
H: I like turtles.
So look at it this way: you could be the camera man.2
I assume this only happen in my country (Malaysia). We have multiple inconsistent lockdown...
So most of us went from working in the office to Working From Home. During this time Our employers expects us to clock in to Zoom Meetings or Dingtalk meetings for 24 /7 , microphone must be turned on and camera must be turned on at all time, other wise it consider as a void(that means salary deduction, not consider working) .
Employers here have the mentality of ""IF I DON'T SEE WHAT ARE DOING WITH MY OWN EYE , I CONSIDER YOU ARE NOT EVEN WORKING.".
I'M sick of this shit tbh.11
I know Google isn't the worst company in the world. But some of their data tracking just seems a bit odd. Such as keeping audio logs each time you use Google on your phone. Or when it picks up random bits of conversation. Along with them keeping track of where your going, and where you have been. Even if Google maps isn't running.
And one of my all time favorites is when Google Allo was a thing, it used to have access to my camera randomly without actually opening the app. My phone will tell me different logs each time Allo opened the camera without my permission.
I know they need to collect data in order to advance some of their fields of tech. But it just seems a bit intrusive when companies like Google do this.13
Hi, here's how things are working now:
– Me and MerryBandOfDumbasses1 are doing project 1.
– Me and MerryBandOfDumbasses2 are doing project 2.
– Me has project 3 for work with this adorable boss I'd hate to disappoint. (Anyone watching Brooklyn99? He's my Captain Holt)
– Me has to deal with thesis.
– Me is having trouble keeping her head above the water. (emotionally speaking)
Conclusion: Me is fucked.
*grins for the camera* 😀6
My arguments about Apple:
- "iPhone 12 camera can be better than anything else because it's more advanced, it has LiDAR and 10-bit codecs"
- "I can copy on my iPhone and paste on my MacBook and vice versa out of the box"
- "My Beats can seamlessly switch from playing from my MacBook to my iPhone to my Apple Watch. I can be exercising with only my Apple Watch and my Beats, no need for iPhone"
- "2K screen with nice colors in a 900g laptop is rare if you consider the price. Apple one is the cheapest one with that characteristics"
- "Apple Pay is convenient"
- "Fingerprint scanners fail with wet fingers no matter if it's ultrasonic or optical, LiDAR Face ID is objectively more secure than any camera-based unlock mechanism"
- "Stainless steel frame feels better than aluminum one"
I'm not saying Apple is the best. I'm not saying that Google Pay doesn't exist or that Apple Pay is better. I'm not saying that Apple has no downsides.
However, these are responses I get:
"But Apple IS crapple, immutably"
"Why are you even looking at apple crap if you want something good"
If you want to bash Apple, bash it for something real like that butterfly keyboard fails, unconventional AirPods shape that makes most people's ears hurt, screen coating fails on MacBooks, App Store commissions.49
Hey hackers! 😀
Does making a camera disconnected from the network using deauth packets , mean the camera won't send any data to the sarver/admin?
Does that make the camera useless and made the camera disabled?30
I wanna make you feel what you have brought into my house!!
I was working with security cameras once in a home automation project. One of those camera particularly stand out by offering a cgi without password request to view and change the current passwort and username.
Seriously wtf is wrong with you? I mean this thing automatically connects to an internet service offering everyone to connect to it with that passwort and username. And I know some of you might say "hey chill the cgi is only available on the wifi" - dammit no. Security is a lifestyle do it complete or get the fuck out. God knows what other mistakes there might be hidden in that thing screaming out to everyone to watch me taking a shit.
But that's not the end of it. My company arranged a call to the technical support of that camera so that I can explain the problem and a patch gets released. Those guys didn't give a shit about it and were even laughing at me. Fuck you!
So whoever is responsible - I will find you - and you will never see me coming.4
For all those who post pictures of their screen taken with phone camera (and we all know how crappy that usually looks), there is something called Snipping Tool! As simple as it gets.. Use it ✂😉5
Client: We are in a tight budget, but you'll get a lot of exposure
Me: NO! I have enough exposure on my camera.. 😉😜1
I hope not too many people followed this advice. It was a tutorial for making your Raspberry Pi act as a network-accessible CCTV camera, and the tutorial was good, but that end part... yikes. Don't just port forward your http stream!
At least I know how I can just have it accessible only through my OpenVPN.2
Oh dear Apple,
so you're telling me that for the camera API, the requestAuthorization() method returns a bool and for the PhotoLibrary it returns an enum. Why are you going with an enum when there are 2 states and the camera api doesn't use an enum?
(The 2 methods serve the same purpose, the enum exists in the camera api as well and has the exact same states)
And why do I need access to users photos, if I only want to write photos?2
Today, I made someones day in 5 minutes by using my phone camera, a picture to pdf converter, and a wireless capable printer to take a sheet of music in a small book, supersize it, and print it so they could read it without squinting.
Sometimes I forget how awesome it is to have this technology on demand, and it takes someone who doesn't have it to realize just how cool it is.3
So i guess everybody knows what PCB is in here.
But i guess not everybody made their own.
So the process is quiet simple but i will say it even more simple.
Basically get a special mask. Shine UV light on it. Soda for washer machine.
And ferus chloride
But the time you shine the UV and the distance matters a hell fucking lot.
I got the perfect shining on it the first time in like 4 years. Didnt do it in 4 years and now did it perfect on first try.
Would post photo but camera in my latest build is broken for some reason. IDK if i will actually sleep today when i want to fix the damn camera.8
Had to refresh a group session in my program, spent 15 minutes looking at my phone, put my bare feet on my desk and did this thing where I lean back in my chair and stick both hands in my pants, possibly smelled one. Thats when I realized my camera was on the entire time. Was also the only other person on stage/presenting so my screen was directly next to the instructors face cam.
I hate stupid DirectX .x files!!!!
I can't even find a simple camera mesh and I can't use other formats for this shitty project. No forking 3d model editor/converter works properly to convert other formats to it either, and those programs look like gray dogshit too. 😠2
Since the last post did not have the gif correctly attached, and @C0D4 suggested how to do this properly, here it is again.
With virtual camera, now I join meetings like this, and it is a live demo not just a video
Here is the repo to achieve the effect
You will still need a virtual camera software to project it in the meeting, for me I used OBS8
Zebra tc51 with a price tag of 1299.99usd. No power supply, no cable, 720p screen, snapdragon 650 soc. This is the RED camera in android 🤦♂️12
Please bug test your websites heavily. Don't be like this.
Should be mentioned, under normal circumstances this never hits more than 500 MB (still way too much for what it is). However, I somehow got the website to absolutely shit itself and cause this amazing sight to behold (2.6GB/4GB used by the website alone.)
(Yeah I have 2 browsers open so what?)
(Also taken with a shitty camera then also edited. Lost the original because I'm an idiot.)8
I was asked to check something today that was handed over on a USB stick. "Could you check that the file structure is correct". Of course I said. Then I prepared my camera, changed the insides of the stick to my rubber ducky, wrote a little script and uploaded it. Oh yea and corrected the structure.
The face of the colleague was priceless when I brought back the stick and he sticked it right into his computer.
The script was roughly:
- open browser
- open history
- search "porn"
- select second row
=D office pranks <32
Fucking hell, I can't even cook in piece without my mother constantly shouting shit, because the phone doesn't make beautiful selfies anymore. hint: there's a fucking crack over the lense,because you dropped it and no changing all possible settings while throwing out all patience, common sense and ability to read will not improve this situation
i tried to tell her that she could still try to make do with her main camera and when she switches she asked me: "But why does it still make normal photos when I rotate the thing?!" Because unlike your mind this camera isn't damage now fuck off, with all your nervousity I tried to relax and cook us something, but that was more stressful than all the work I did today.15
my CTO is on 2 week vacation, guess what he did on his last day...
installed a camera with a microphone in our office. coincidentally right near the devs...
i'm afraid to talk with my colleagues...7
Why people like Google pixel
No wireless charging
No dual camera stuff
And now no headphones jack 😐😕
Samsung galaxy S8
And LG V30 Is far better choice7
fdisk, cfdisk, diskpart and other tools CAN SUCK MY DICK.
I needed to restore my raspberry pi microsd from 200ish MB back to 16 GB and could find NO WAY of restoring it from my pc. maybe there is some ajbd -asdkasd -adkahdh IUYGFG_&38726283746 sdkfjksjf command that does that but I don't give a shit.
I plugged it into my camera instead. One second and my microsd was restored.
Canon doesn't care about your fancy partitions and other shit, it's just fucking blasting, it is like IN YO FACE. I love it.6
Facebug secretly opens a camera on iphones: a bug or a malicious behaviour?
OFC IT'S A BUG!!!! FB DOES NOT UPLOAD ANY PICTURES W/O AUTHORIZATION!!! FB IS GOOD!
There's a camera man in the office again today.
devRant.conf opened up on the monitor for good measure.
"The assumption was that there were subtle differences between the cameras such as quantum efficiency. While shot noise is a Poisson process, for large number of photons, it is almost
indistinguishable from Gaussian noise."
I'm reading my thesis to make sure it makes sense before I submit it, and I'm like - did I write this verbal diarrhea?23
That thing has got an eye of fish.Any guess what it is called?

Me trying to impress my girlfriend with the light painting.
Motivated me to develop my own algorithm for the effect.4
On the university we made a robot using Lego, which communicated on bluetooth with a tablet. We wrote a smile detector using opencv for the tablet. On the tablet you saw the view of the front camera. And when you smiled into the camera, the tablet notified the Lego robot which gave you a chewgum. The purpose of this project was to demonstrate on a fair what our robotics group did. People really liked it. 🙂2
With the help of obs virtual camera, now I can join meeting like this
It’s real time not just a video, idk if gif works correctly on devrant now, but it’s me dancing
Edit: apparently gif still doesn’t work on devrant18
Me: figuring out APT-69420 (hacker group) representative is a girl.
Also me: Woohoo! You go girl!
Also me: ... Wait, am I being sexist?
😐 idek anymore...
Anyways, them camera footages they released tho...18

I don’t *hate* them, but I had really high hopes for Xperia smartphones back then, five years ago.
So I saved up and bought one. That’s what I got:
1. It was getting slower and slower
2. Micro usb broke just months after I got the smartphone
3. Sticky fragile screen with absolutely no oleophobic coating
4. NO UPDATES TO KITKAT AND LOLLIPOP! They just left us behind!
5. The main reason.
I catch moments with my camera. For me, camera is a vital feature, the most significant factor.
I once needed it really urgent and it just said “Camera is unavailable”. And that’s all. Camera is gone forever, broken. Factory reset haven’t fixed it.
You, alongside with Meizu, turned me away from android irreversibly and forever. When I heard about no update, I literally felt abused. Just like a girl whom random fuckboy made a proposal to, fucked and then left just months later.
With that level of customer support, basic respect to me as a user and buyer and that level of quality control, fuck you and your sloppy bricks you call smartphones. Maybe things are changing now, but I don’t care anymore and hardly ever will.
P.S. it heats up as hell, fucking pocket stove3
I only have one laptop monitor to myself at home, so I overcompensate at work.
Also, my phone has a potato camera.4
I'm a hobbyist photographer but lately I've been getting offers to work on major gigs. Apparently people have started liking my photography.
However, just like some programmers are hardliners when it comes to particular stacks, the camera world is riddled with brand loyalists that can't accept that anything other than their camera gear is better. You have Canon/Nikon users who can't wrap their minds around the fact that Sony is making better cameras for the price.
I ask a question about what lens people recommend and a flame war starts about why X camera is better than Y camera.
Guess what, it ultimately comes down to the skill of the photographer and not the camera. All I wanted was a lens recommendation for a particular style of shooting.
Thing is, all modern cameras are more than capable of doing their jobs.9
take a picture/video directly from the camera is a possible feature in the next devRant update. :D :P
Smartphone manufacturers these days, imagine how meetings to come up with ideas for new products go about.
Product manager :ok people,what can we do to make our next smartphone 'different'.
Employee 1: let's add more cameras
Employee 2:Let's kill the notch
Employee 3:Let's include the buzzword AI in all of our marketing
Employee 4:Let's put 8Gb of Ram in our phone
Employee 5:Let's just do all of those things and also give it a screen with a ridiculous aspect ratio and unnecessarily high resolution.3
Flashed my Nexus 5x into a pixel. I really recommend it. The camera app launches much quicker plus:5
I swear to God, Days i feel stupid i Look at my PM's code changes and laugh.
What kind of Fuck Tard creates an api call just to return JSON(true)
And to top it off I pulled the latest after his poisonous stench was added and gave me a broken build!
Serious! D ass clown put in a variable with the same name twice, does this buck not build before he commits?
Im starting to believe that this is a hidden camera show where they pulled a fucking mental patient out fking looney toon land and gave him a PM job in a tech company!5

Venus (top), Jupiter (bottom). There's a star (Antares) there to make it triangle but the star is dim to get caught by my crappy phone camera.
I've always fascinated by the night sky. Nevermind the mission to travel to Mars, the only matters now is how beautiful the night sky is but a lot of us don't get access to it because of light pollution. It's kinda sad that I need to go outside of the cities to see more of what the sky has to offer. I really wish everyone can see and appreciate it once in a while.1
every new smartphone these days seems to be like one of those scify movie aliens with weird eyes (dual camera lenses) .
I mean, pixel phones clearly shows that having a top-notch software for single camera is already at par with dual cam setups .
And yet huawei is slaying them all .
New huawei flagship phone : awesome specs , ai beautify , blah blah lens , blah blah block chain 16 mp AND "2MP " dual camera setup .
they are like yeah surely we give them dual cameras, but why bother because no one will read after the word "DUAL"
Wow. That's a new level of ratings.
Just read ratings like these below an ascii cam app(which works like it should):
"This is just a camera witu a mosaic filter, that's why you can't save the pictures as ascii"
"This is not real ascii because you can't save it as .txt or .html"
I don't think i need to say anything.1
I just got a bit into OpenCV and I am completely exited. I built a little ball tracker (Yes I know that the cross is on the other side, it's inverted so the cross is at the same position as the ball in front of the camera) and although it is not the most advanced project I think it's kinda cool.9
Planning for a new personal project using:
Pico Pro Maker Kit
1 Pico i.MX7 Dual Development Board
1 camera module
1 5" multi touch display
USB-C cable and connectors
Feel free to suggest me some good IOT project2
I thought developers were clever enough to take screenshot with a proper tool not with a fucking phone camera.9
I think I'm getting old... I may buy an iPhone next because it "just works" and I don't care that much about gaming or need buy that many different apps...
Being deaf the voice transcription and better mic and camera... Now seem just worth the lockdown...
I was browsing websites in search of a nice digital camera because my wife saw one but it's long since been discontinued. So I found this one article about a few current ones. I open it, it shows the typical GDPR consent request about cookies with a prominent button 'ACCEPT ALL,' and a less prominent button 'MANAGE PREFERENCES.'
But tapping the button 'MANAGE PREFERENCES' did not show any preferences to manage! WHAT THE HECK? There was only a list of 'partners' whose cookies I need to accept. A long list. A very long list. I stopped counting at 500.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? WHAT REASON COULD A WEBSITE POSSIBLY HAVE TO REQUIRE COOKIE CONSENT FOR MORE THAN 500 PARTNERS?
Fucking capitalist internet.4
What aren't there any 2k 32 inch 144 Hz monitors out there that are: flat. I want to upgrade my home setup from a 24" setup, which is, you know, flat. Even back in the days of the CRT monstrosities I've spent a premium on getting a flat panel, as the outside curvature was a technical obstacle to overcome.
I don't understand the need to curve the display. It distorts the lines, hinders other people looking at your screen as you have to be in the right spot, and every camera records on a flat surface. Why should it be a good thing to go curved?
I am reminded of the 3D craze.1
Does anyone else think that phone manufacturers are scamming us with higher specs like 6Gigs of RAM and 16 MP Camera..? Most of us dont even use those 3 GB .. let alone 6..18

Here is the crazy guy on my fav childhood beach.
BT glasses now (today I want Portuguese hip hop) but usually camera glasses (suposed to be 1080p, pix are 640x480) , so other gadjet to unmount.

Replaced battery in my phone but during the process I broke cable to front camera.
Looks like it’s time to also replace front camera.
I am impressed it works without it.5
Just did my interview with Turing & OMG!
2 questions, total of 30 mins to answer both questions, and there's a dude with access to your screen, camera & microphone watching your every move.
Went horribly. Utter failure. Not expecting to hear back from them.
Questions weren't related to the skills I said I had. They were general questions that could be answered in any language. I honestly wasn't ready to write code to split an array of numbers into 3 equal parts whose values when added would equal.
FML. Fuck this shit. I'm tired of all the bullshit (mine included)!19
Fuck you windows!!!
I had to leave town but wanted some surveillance and had no cctv or ip camera set up. So I added my laptop to teamviewer and used its webcam.
Now its not showing up on teamviewer and most likely because WINDOWS SCHEDULED A MAJOR UPDATE
It probably rebooted and went on to boot into ubuntu. Should have fucking run ubuntu in the first place. I am going to be so furious when I get back.
*in case you are wondering, I had to leave in a hurry and didn't go for ubuntu because I had never used the camera in it and wasn't sure if ubuntu had the required drivers *1
Well... I recorded my boss's talk at a small tech conference. Everything went just fine until I tried downloading the video from my camera.
It turns out under-priced 32 GB SD cards from eBay may actually only contain 256 MB worth of memory, while quite happily accepting recordings that are far larger than that.4
OnePlus 3 camera app has integration with Google Lens, that's great let's try it.
*Open camera, switch to Google Lens, and capture my mouse ( a regular one, with very common design in general)
*Results: bikes, Moto, and more motos.. 🚲🛵🏍️
Wow Good job7
Android, the development side.
First it was cool to put stuff together and then i wanted to actually use the phone hardware and realized that the api is terrible and abstracted away in the worst way possible.
Like every java dev would make something like new Camera().photo("penis.jpg") and let the gc take care of the rest but nooooooooo you need persisted objects and datastreams and special permission checks.5
I was bored so I fuzzed around on Shodan and found this piece of gold. GeoVision camera running on Linux 2.6.x (at least that's what Shodan said) and I'm on Firefox 647
i wish there was an app to measure celllphone reception, which displays the signal strength via Augmentented Reality. With green yellow and red, just like it does with a thermal camera. So that you can find the best cellphone reception spot in your flat.2
Looking a pr I found this piece of art in a css file:
Me: "something feels off about this."
Colleague: "Again with your readability bs?"
Me: *looks at the camera, perplexed* (The camera as in: I'm in a sitcom, not as pair programming)15
Today has officially drained all the brain I didn't even have yesterday. Let's hope I get somewhere with this thing, or else all the brain I've wasted is going to be useless.
Also, fuck opencv's fisheye undistortion. Mofo, I don't have the camera params, how the fuck do you want me to give you your stupid kernel shit? Shut the fuck up from my face. Stupid hoebag.
Books. I love them, I buy them, where ever I go. My favorites are the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett, but I will read any sci-fi/fantasy-styled book I come across. I would attach an image, but my phone's camera is pretty shitty, so just imagine some shelfs filled with books.
Music is imortant to me too. There will always be music playing when I'm around. I'm trying to make some myself. It's not that good but still fun. I am also a collector of vinyl records.
And then there are games of course, because sitting at a pc just for coding is not enough :D3
There are too many but let's see.
When I was doing xperia P development I had this issue that it would not install via TWRP cause it would not recognize the phone.
For 2 months I was releasing a manually edited zip file with the hack to fix that bug until I finally fixed it.
Or when I had to hex edit the camera blob cause it was sending a command that new HAL and driver in kernel interpreted as hard reset. I didn't know where the F and why the fuck it's doing it so for like a week I had hacked blob on my phone.
And sadly many many more.
So, I need to search for a new job again. The thing killed my project.
15 years of Java experience in my resume, I look a like a sterotypical 35 years old programmer, I’m applying for expert roles. But every remote technical interview starts with:
- what is the difference between ArrayList and LinkedList?
- what is a hash map?
The hardest part is to keep smiling to the camera, pretending I don’t have the answer memorized by repeating it for the last 15 years of interviewing, and not rolling my eyes.
And before you ask, I do know what garbage collector is.5
Me: Wants to access an IP camera from home. Goes to url on mac. “Plugin required” press install “Not found”, google it: “ActiveX is deprecated and only works in IE.” Installs windows 7 on a virtual machine: runs IE “page can’t be load, browser not supported” looks for other way: got access: Sooooo slow After all that spent time: forget it I don’t wanna see it anymore.
I was just told by the patent review board of the automotive corporate I work for, that virtual camera dynamics are not patentable.
Well, when the only thing you understand is the mechanics of window-wipers and you've never heard of the computer games industry....3
Since I was a child I had always been interested in computers and when I bought a MacBook Pro at the age of 15 I discovered that I could make apps for iOS for free with Xcode and figured I could try it out. Started watching swift tutorials and shortly fell in love with programming. I then started building a stupid camera app, and published it on the AppStore. I am now working on my second project called ChairGame (musical chairs) I am 16 now and confident that I will become a developer.1
The only electronic device called Alexa that is allowed near me is a professional camera made by Arri. Approach me with some other Alexa device and my bodyguard will tase you.4
I hope it fucking work this time, kubernetes has been on my damn list since last summer, gave up on my 2Mbits internet so I took a scaleway server with 200mbits let's hope I get it to work this time!19
Fuck HikVision and their IP cameras. Why would anyone make a simple process of factory reset extraordinary complicated?!4
A UK bank (building society) are giving away a free home security camera if you take out their home insurance product.
Seriously!? I do NOT want to install a camera, given to me by my bank, in my flat!
Replaced camera in my phone, it arrived when I was heading to the pub so after 3 beers I came back and everything works now.
Looks like it’s better to fix things when not sober.5
Okay then, ex-android user there.
It started with Xperia TX - it was flagship Sony phone back then. It blew my mind when I touched it for the first time. You know, exploring android for the first time in my life was amazing.
It ran just well for about a year. Then it started to fall apart. I need to clarify that I kept it non-rooted, full stock. I'm not into that customization things.
At first, I noticed significant lags. They were everywhere. The longer I used smartphone, the more lags I encountered. I did factory reset, but lags haven't gone anywhere.
Year 2. Front camera stopped working. Battery became unreliable as fuck, going down to 40% and then instantly to zero. What?
Year 3. Camera broke. It refused to start, just giving me "Camera is not available" error.
I tried factory reset again. It helped at first, but month have passed and all that issues came back. And it also became sluggish as fuck.
Got Meizu m3s year ago. The exact same story. Long story short, in one year I got this:
1. Black spots on every picture I take. Much likely a matrix issue.
2. Camera also became slow as fuck, requiring about 10 seconds to even start.
3. Vertical stripes all along the screen. I never dropped my phone, it just appeared once and became brighter and brighter every day I used the phone.
4. Two huge yellow spots on screen. I think it happened because phone's cpu heat up the screen and it broke.
But the most important thing is that fucking lags chased me in every app, they were everywhere. Fucking tiny-ass lags. And they're not going anywhere, they're become more and more significant with time.
Don't say me about oneplus, samsungs and other top android phones. They are conceptually the same, the only different thing is hardware.
That's why I switched. IPhone has its downsides, but it's silky smooth. And my friend's iPhone 4 (not s) feels just as smooth as my brand new se.
I'm not going to jailbreak it. I don't need customizing the hell out of it.
I just needed quick and reliable phone, and SE seems to be exactly what I wanted.
Peace to android folks tho✌️17
SORRY, OF OFF-TOPIC
Have you ever woke up one day, and EVERYTHING in your day went wrong?
I am working in a online media website to earn money while I'm on the university.
Today I had to deliver a work for uni in the morning. I only had to print it. Well... The printer wasn't working, so I got late to work.
At least they were cool about it.
Then I started working.
I had to record and edit 2 videos (and other easier things in between).
The first one went very smoothly and fast.
Then I "recorded" the second one. This one was with the most beautiful woman on there. Deamn, she's beautiful...
I got very nervouse.
First take, at the end of it, I look to my right and the mike was on the table. So she was basically talking to no one.
We had to record a second time.
When we finished, I looked at the camera, and I saw that I hadn't connected the audio receptor to the camera. Fuck! I was so unfocused...
We had to record a 3rd time.
What a shame.......
Then my colleague was in my computer, and I end up getting out of work 2 hours extra.
Now, to finish, I just lost my last bus home, and I need to take a taxi...
Aunt asked me to repair her phone because "nothing is working". She said she tried every phone repairer in the town. She blames the phone, the phone manufacturer and everyone else.
She finally admitted the phone fell into water and she didn't tell it to the repairers. Then she wonders why they can't do magic.
"But aren't the front camera and the rear camera the same camera?"
Does anyone have experience with aligning 2D Lidar scanners?
I have a front and back facing ones, each with 270 degrees scanning range, so they have overlap.
Is there a golden standard for offline Lidar alignment, like Charuco board for camera alignment?3
"You're a tech person, can you fix my internet?"
(proceed to waste 2 hours facetiming as she points her phone camera around at a clusterfuck of cords going to/from her modem and phone setup)
Just came across this in-browser presentation tool, sozi (free). See it in action
Just prepare a giant svg file (free inkspace) and create slides like camera panning focusing on each part of the svg file.
It took long enough for google to do something so basic.
So currently if you have provided mic or camera access to one of the apps, then it can also access those features while running in background..3
"Meet the new 'Iphone Tennis'(XS) , or should i say 'Iphone excess'? XD"
"Meanwhile , we are also launching an iphone ten- Hour(XR) which we will completely validate google's point of having a single camera and uselessness of our over-hyped dual camera "
So you have saved up some money, got a macbook, paid for an apple developer account to build an app which uses the camera only to find out that the simulator doesnt work with the macbook's camera. Apple do you realise that without devs you wouldn't have a decent app store?8
I do photography on the side, and I just realized that my mini tripod that came from with my camera had extendable legs, so happy (cause now it's useful)
While I was in the bathroom at work, I heard a phone camera shutter click from a stall. What could possibly have been the subject of that photo?8
Been trying to make React Native / SDK / Installing React components/ to work properly the whole day. After many hours I got it running on my phone to start working with a camera app idea i have.
When you take a photo with the phone oriented vertically, it takes an horizontal photo.
My new project: a camera sends an image of the electricity clock to a server that does ocr and submits the value to the electricity company on the 5th of every month
Current progress: spent 4 hours trying to get emails to work in scala when i found on an obscure forum that you have to enable insecure app access in your gmail to use smtp13
So I was just wondering why is do Snapchat take worse photos on android but we have better cameras so I download and check the source code naturally I check the source code and lo and behold I see this apparently snap for android doesn't use the camera it just screenshots it wtf?1
Me today: ahhh fantastic today let's fix the new Camera HAL.
Me 6 hours later and 90 tabs in Firefox and 15 terminal windows (yes really): well one could except it would be little easier.
Me now: snapshot on video is working. Taking photos works. Starting video rec freezes. Stopping it crashes entire HAL.
Yeahhh this will be fun even tomorrow I guess.4
What I thought coders would do when they are at home?
Building and automating everything in their life. How about a button on your wall automatically ordering your favourite pizza? A drone with a camera on the balcony that automatically gets triggered when someone rings the bell, flying down as a high tech and cool door bell camera?
Now that I am a developer, what am I writing in my spare time? Grease Monkey scripts that auto display none the "please do not use add blocker" notices. Living the life!
I feel sad to say this but...
I'm hyped for the pixel 4, currently rocking my 6th pixel 2 XL (fuck these screens and camera units) and the pixel 3 was just all levels of no from the notch, incremental upgrade status and just a phone following the trends.
Looking at the leaks and official confirmations of the pixel 4 actually have me keen for photography (I do prefer a DLSR or straight up film unit but a good in the moment camera is amazing), performance and lack of notch just have me keen...
Forgive me father for I have sinned4
The most horrifying thing for any Android Dev:
The client wants to build a media app and owns a Samsung device!!!1
Right after breaking my camera lens, my brother again broke my precious favorite mouse. I don't know what to do about it. After all, he is my brother.7
So Vivo made a bezeless phone this time
But guess what its again gonna contain a fucking kazillion Megapixel Selfie camera with Mars Light Flash to make you look Unique paired with a shit mediatek Processor.
They have got stones from krypton and their next phone is gonna have krypton light flash just so the fuckin superman can't use that just because they partnered with marvel to get infinity stones so that they can use them in their later phones as a light for the selfie flash.
Guess what? Thanos preodered it ..
Well Played Vivo3
spent all day with a new project, maybe you guys can help.
I have two p2p cameras that I want to setup and access when my family goes on vacation.
Cameras are working (with mildly success) , now, what Is the best option to access them from the Internet?
I can send e-mails, but can't config the SMTP server (don't know why always gives connection error, but guessing that maby this kind of products are blocked from sending e-mails), tried Gmail, mail, and Hotmail.
ftp-server.. don't have any online (have a VPS with 200 mb free ram...)
Soo I've written some python code to test things for my soon starting bachelor thesis. I work with a little robot car I share with other people and use 2 cameras on it. Today I make the extra effort to go to the lab to test my things as there were too many people busy with the available cars yesterday.
Set it all up with ROS and my project as per usual just to see whether python fucks me over again ... nothing, ok what a surprise.
Good part: my python code seems to work flawlessly
Bad part: cameras don't work, although they don't throw any errors. Quick check with rqt_image_view ... everything seems fucked up, but not broken. Cameras not accessible as they should be, only 1 view available instead of the normal million modes and a blank grey camera stream on the screen. But no errors, nothing.🙄😪
I also wanted to capture some footage to test at home, well that's gone to shit. Now I had to simulate that using my phone camera ... while crouching.
Fuck ... me.1

Any mid-class phone recommendations?
I want a good battery and relatively okay performance. Any android device, between 150-350€ maybe.

Heyo ladies and gents :)
Due to a personal project I have in mind I'm looking for a body camera that permits to upload recorded videos to a personal server. Does anyone have any reccomendations?6
Not finding a way to make money posting YouTube videos all day long. Like that woman who uploads DIY “how to make slime from Elmer’s Glue” and makes over $100,000 every month from ads and merchandise. Or that 5 year old who makes millions per month in ad views playing with toys on camera and his parents upload it to YouTube calling it a “toy review”.
I wanna be a YouTube star for just a year so I can retire.5
I just got an old refurb for the garage to run my camera capture stuff, as the raspberry pi wasn't cutting it. I thought for a split second about leaving the legit version of Windows 10 that came with it on it, and trying to do some in-home streaming over steam, but I found out very quickly that an old corporate refurb is not going to cut it for game streaming. And with all the complete nonsense you have to abide to make Windows usable(ie: disabling stuff you don't want), it's not going to be any use to me in Windows if it can't stream.
Also, for some reason, Windows just wouldn't use the built-in NIC at all. It reported the cable was unplugged, and just absolutely would not work. So, Debian it is, and lo and behold! The NIC works like a champ now. The camera capture works brilliantly too, so now I can turn off my desktop at night.
Linux just works. Windows, more and more all the time, is just more trouble than it's worth.2
Hey, first time poster :-)
Working alone on a C++ app that has to control a GUI, camera and electronics on the side... but between the test cases, switching between classes and helping colleagues on unrelated issues, I find it hard to keep track of what connects with what, what needs to be done, what IS done...
So, how do you guys and girls keep track of your projects ? Stuck with To-do lists for now ^^6
Started dicking around with RasPi-Cam this evening for a college project, it tells me the camera module hasn't been detected. 😶😒😕8
Story time: Once I sent our android developer a project that he was supposed to compile and install on a test device. On my machine everything worked perfectly but on his machine ADB would keep failing to install the apk. After an hour of scratching our heads we figured out what happened:
He had just received a new Chinese action camera from Amazon and plugged it into his PC to charge. Turns out it's running rooted Android and runs ADB Debug mode by default. So the build script would try to deploy our phone app to his action cam instead of our test device5
Day 1/2 using windows phone.
Wish me luck my fellow debs, while my nexus 6P gets the camera glass replaced I'm stuck using windows 10 phone, this will be an interesting 2 days!13
You know why there is no sharp, non-blurry weirdass image of these Windows Update screens? Cus they actually don't take very long and in your shaking senseless windows hate you gotta pull up the camera asap to get a picture of it, after you missed it last time.3
Meanwhile today, somewhere in America
Fan - "Apple is great. Added two camera on the same phone and 7MP camera om front. Totally irrational. Who does that. Ever heard anyone provided "7" MP camera, all they provide is non-prime and rational. Apple always bring something new and great that others cant "7
"We don't have enough time"
Well, time is relative I might be travelling close to speed of light right now while having this meeting. No? You don't know that my camera is off.2
Should've traded in my pixel 2 for the 5g during Black Friday..... Main phone is a rooted OnePlus 6... Which specs wise and without the bloat ware still beats Pixel aside from the camera...
Apparently it's now impossible to hide root.... Which means for day to day use, have to use an unrooted phone....10
Friendly reminder for hackathons, a great idea is better than a great app.
I saw amazing creations, from a virtual reality rowing machine to a camera that read a Connect 4 game into a AWS server live.
Yet, the hack that won the popular vote was an app that would tell your friend, through texts, where you were when you're heading over to pick them up.
A simple concept to implement, but a great idea.1
can you guys show me yours & your favorite personal websites?
i really want the user to be able to deepfake the picture of me in it by using their camera and tensorflow.js so that the picture will change to their facial expressions, but i'm not sure how to do that yet.32
Why does my phone (most phones) record video that are like 100s of MB for just a few minutes? Where as I can download the same video and similar quality but much smaller from Youtube after I upload it?
Originally I used Youtube to stabilize videos but seems they removed that... so now I just want the videos with reasonable size.
Not sure if this was from OpenCamera (I think I have it forcing 4K UHD, prolly don't need); I don't know what the setting is in Camera, can't change it.
But smartphone videos are always huge...15
Now that Summer is over and Winter has come... I am now going over all the videos I took to make me feel better in Winter...
Alas... I now see 1 reason why I need an iPhone....
The camera is better...
The colors are sort of dull and lighting is uneven/not optimal....4
I've been wondering about the difficulties and security risk of allowing web apps to interact with native functions, such as file management. What would be the difference of letting web apps access native functions, and native apps doing it? I mean, we can already request access to features such as camera and microphone?
McDonald's has a Window problem... And a really slow customer...
I have a buying problem tho.... Just bought an OP6 this morning and rationalized it by saying I need a new camera and my monthly maintenance is $500 anyway so...4
So got my pixel 2 XL screen replaced after months of waiting on the part, took it to my usual repair guy and it was fixed within the hour, everything was all fine.
Went home, went to take a photo aaaaaaaaand cameras aren't working.... For fuck sake!
Why can't I have nice things...3
Strange things happening in my phone since a couple of weeks.
Google now automatically starts.
Music Player automatically starts.
All of sudden camera app opens.
Tried permission, removed all apps that were not installed from playstore..
What's next now?10
It's a bit late but what do these specs mean?
The f and the 16/20.
I thought I was getting 20mp but all the camera apps say maz is 16.
And for RAWS, dinner say 13, OpenCamera says 16.9
Anyone elses weekend getting super fucked because of the new iOS update?
I am sitting here late at night working because they just decided to screw with their filesystem because of their ugly new camera...2
Boss just repositioned the security camera we use to watch the front door right behind me, with perfect view of me and my monitor.....micro manage much....1
So my phones camera's are fucked, was working on my games camera system last night and was ranting to my partner that none of it was working but it should be... Her response was 'You're not having much luck with camera's are you?"...
That cuts deep man...
I will upload a new camera HAL. You will just port it over they said. It wont be that hard they said.
They were wrong I say.
Day 5 of camera work: Im closing on on the issue. We are not processing the data and it's overloading the bus. I have no clue how to make it process the data.
New report tomorrow.4
I now understand why my Pixel 2 can't take photos...
The problem isn't the camera but the battery... Somehow the battery can't supply extra load (voltage/current?) that the camera needs...12
Currently working on an AR Application, made with Unity.
When I wanted to test a new feature today, the focus of the Camera on my Testdevice (Galaxy S8) wasnt working anymore.
Spent half an hour to fix it with "shaking the phone while in the camera app and tapping the lense".
So my phone updated to Android 5.1.1 (can't remember the actual number of the update) against my will. I chose no a couple of times. One day I woke up and pop! New version for you! Yay!!!
Now my battery is draining faster then ever before. Camera is freezing sometimes. I hate you Lenovo. My Vibe K5 was such a glorious phone, for my use of course, but now it's just a desk phone since it's always plugged in a power outlet 😒5
Got a question guys!
I want to capture screenshots from a live video stream being broadcast over HTTPS, such as the one on this link:
I can do it locally using the chrome webdriver in selenium, but cannot reproduce the same in a server I'm accessing remotely. I tried using headless browsers like phantomJS, but apparently it doesn't support video players -_-
I'm confused because I don't even know what to search for anymore, I've been stuck with this one thing for the last 17 hours. Any help would be greatly appreciated!5
Recommendations for beginners guide to digital cameras and how to use them.
Mum has a new camera, previously used a non-digital.
Any suggestions on specific books?
(She still likes to read paper..)2
I hate Linux from the bottom of my heart.
I have a SLR camera. After a few shooting sessions I inserted my SD card into my Arch Linux machine. For some mysterious reason it wouldn't ever umount, saying target was busy (nothing opened on it btw). So I just removed my SD card and, alas: all of my photos are gone.
Anyone knows how to fix it?9
Hmm... OP6 is coming out...
I bought an OP1 3.5yrs ago for $350 and it still works pretty well with LineageOS...
So right now the amortized cost is $100/yr...
New one seems to be $500 but the only reason I want the new one is the camera...
The other options I can think of is Samsung or Google, are there any others... that can be bought in the US?9
Probably should be sleeping seeing it's 11PM but fuck it... Lets rewrite my entire display and camera systems and hope nothing else breaks in the process!
I can't integrate this damn camera (with a system) and I should get over it already, but I'm anal about having things the way I want them so I guess I'll suffer a bit longer before giving up.
Note to self: give up already and move on!1
can somebody recommend me a digital camera, which can be controlled programmatically by computer aka. Rasberry Pi?
I want to try some image processing algorithms and time lapse on live video. The price should be around 200-300$ and it is really important that I can program it.4
Seems to be I have dropped too many times my dear OP3.
I drop it daily and never learn not to put it on dangerous places and now finally it's giving up, well only camera, focus no longer works at all. Oh well I don't need that feature that much but I'm surprised that nothing else isn't broken yet.2
Is it all worth it? We feel its freedom, We feel it's just me and my phone or my PC. Is it? Is it that private? That camera you have on your phone, what if someone is watching you right now? That microphone you have, what if someone is listening to you right now? Those stuffs you Google, Those sites you visit, you're tracked, you're tapped. Ohh Incognito, Good Luck, there's no such thing called Incognito. Is it all worth it? In fact you're getting so much out of it. Is it all worth it? Or Am I just too obsessed? Is this Internet really that free?
It's freedom but you're compelled to use. Its freedom!
Modt excited about code was three days ago, when I managed to make SpeedTrees (that are painted on Unity terrains and not detectable as different from the terrain while using raycasts) transparent when they appear between the camera and the character :P
Why isn't all of Ace Combat 7 playable in VR mode? You can turn your head with R, so what would be the difference? They would lock the camera in cockpit view and turn it when you turned your head...2
Why must pixel perfect scaling be so fucking hard... It all works perfectly but I'm limited to a max of 540p for the games camera view but as soon as you drop your resolution bellow 1080p you get stuck with 300p or lower... Ughhhhhhhh
Why did I choose to do pixel art... Wonder if converting everything to vectors would help, wonder is smashing my head into a fucking wall would help...
Got new client today, he wanted me to make a camera feed. Searched on Google free software that does what he says. Welp.
im developing a medical app which is able track and remind you with your medication intakes. The app lets you scan the barcode of your pills.
For testing of the scanning i would need pictures of french (CIP) and spanish medication barcodes.
Would be super awesome if you guys and girls could send me a quick picture of the barcodes ❤️
I got this mail from the company whose hackathon i was supposed to attend, i don't even own a camera.
Bullet dodged !!1
People who attend remote meetings should have their fucking camera on! I don't wanna watch "T" or "P" attend a meeting. Show me your face so I can watch your facial expressions as I tell you I'm gonna deploy on Friday and ruin the entire business! It pisses me on that people can't use their webcam to bring some personality into the meeting, but still show up to the office with their face and everything. Paint a shitty T on your face before going to work if you're so goddamn ashamed of your face in remote meetings!10
These days browsing through some sites firefox asked me to access to my mic and camera... According to you, why?
I think (and I hope) that was because of some specific sites...13
Didn't really know how to categorize, bit of a question/discussion/curiosity, so I put it here.🤷
Just today I read an article that stated about the Netherlands, where the police will use an "AI surveillance camera" (yey buzzwords incoming 🙄, but it would actually make sense(?)🤷) to detect and punish drivers, holding a smartphone. Pictures without smartphone shall be deleted. How would this system work without having non-smartphone pictures? It needs to build a classifier, doesn't it? (To be clear, the system only reports those images to an officer for further analysis and actions.)
I mean let's consider that the images are somehow pre-processed, then some convolution(s) for feature extraction, then maybe some more intermediate steps and at the end apply the results on a classifier. How would that classifier work? Would a probability between 0 and 1 suffice? And if so, report those from 0,5 and above? Or would there be better techniques?9
Nobody thought about the scenario, where you received your vax certificate via pdf on your phone and wanted to register the qr code that was inside it? Like using a screenshot of the code or the pdf itself? The covid app on my phone demands to scan a qr code using my phone's camera. Understandable, if you receive the code on a piece of paper. But what about doing it this way too?7
Windows plug & play is shit. Change my mind.
Wasted so much time trying to connect my camera and I still cannot plug it in (not sure if the PCI driver is missing, or just Windows sucks at this). I thought fresh Windows installations handle the drivers automatically, at least last time I looked it worked out of the box.
On the other hand, I've rarely had any issues with Linux in these regards. I'm probably biased, but I'm still more productive when working on Linux.13
Seriously wondering why i bought a cheap slow ass laptop for school when i end up doing most of my homework at home anyway.
Android studio runs so fucking slow on it compared to my tower and i cant get this fucking camera assignment to fucking work AAAAAAAAAAAH2
I once asked my professor how to implement the twisting feature to open a camera (available in the motorola phones)...he laughed and said 'is it a feature or a bug' . ...and frankly speaking it made think
iPhone 6S got salt water damage. Turns out its the screen so replaced it. Original touch ID doesn't work so that's gone. Now I'm waiting for front camera, sensor, and speaker to arrive to fix that.7
Wish me luck. Starting today on building a modular CCTV camera and alarm system for my home.
Gonna try to integrate accelerometers on the windows to detect when the glass vibrates too much or for too long, as opposed to sonic glassbreak sensors, which also trigger upon my son crying.
Wasted 5 hours to implement video recording with cv2 in python. Followed the tutorials and searched SO for help. The video file I need to produce just doesn't get produced. It's a camera stream from ROS. Yet no errors that might help. Or even any errors. Thanks.
It's for my bachelor thesis. Fuck.4
Math for Computer Science Majors professor is going on and on about calculating probability as if I never heard of the topic before. I took probability theory last semester!! I am so not interested in staying on Zoom with my camera on :(3
I've seen a lot og images om devRant lately that are shitty pictures taken with the mobile camera - the last I saw was a picture of Stack Overflow. Come on my fellow devs, screenshotting is not that hard and time consuming. We are supposed to not be computer-illiterates :D
Merry Christmas by the way!2
As a dev I never gave the possibility of someone using my notebook, PC or phone to snap a photo of me much thought because I just assumed that whoever made the camera module was smart enough to make it so that whenever the CCD/CMOS sensor receives power an LED wired to the same rail lights up - letting you know the camera is on... BUT! That is an assumption I made, has anyone looked how are webcams wired up? Can anyone confirm my assumption?5
We are using a camera in a practical course of image processing on the college. That camera has it's own library to communicate with it so i tried to download the library so i can prepare for the course
It took like 10 minutes to find out that the library is only given to buyers.
In the package with the camera is a password which you need to download the library. Even the documentation is behind that stupid "pay"-wall.
Yeah, your library can only talk to your cameras so i need one of the cameras to use it so why is the library and the complete documentation of it not public?!
Eventually i copied all of it from the college computers.
Maybe i'm just too spoiled with the broad availability of OSS ...
Anyone here into self made drones? I'm building one and get get the video work, the camera + fpv sender work, but I only get the osd and not the actual video. Wired from the description provided by the shop I bought it from, seems alright.

Aaaaagghh why the fuck Android camera is so complicated!! Camera2 api is wonderful but soooo fuckin confusing i want to kill everyone2
Hey guys I've a problem I've been trying to solve for a while. Also I'm a college student so my knowledge isn't going to be the greatest so go easy on me if it's simple to solve😂. So I'm creating a real time licence plate detector using yolo lite, my own deep learning ocr and plan to add the model to fast api. So as an input to the rest api, the user will submit a IP camera link for openCV to get individual frames for preprocessing before yolo predictions. The problem I have is how to I handle multiple real time IP camera feeds at once?. Ive been researching multi threading but read that it can cause issues with async definitions in fast api. Any advice will be greatly appreciated and if more information is needed just shout!.
I honestly think that a company as big as Snapchat, that focuses their entire business idea around using the phone cameras, should be less lazy. I mean why the F do they not use the camera modules on Android phones but instead simply takes screenshots of the preview? Makes the pictures look horrible, no matter the phone camera...
Looking for advice.
A client has asked me to set up a PoE CCTV system capable of being monitored off-site. I've looked at various camera systems but all of the apps (I'm checking Play store) have bad reviews.
Rather than using an NVR I'm wondering if it's possible to use Linux or Windows on a PC connected to a PoE switch (and the internet.
Anyone done anything like this and can recommend software?6
I'm new in deep learning world, I want to develop a project regarding live text detection on mobile camera (without taking an image by the camera), can I do it by the tesorflow object detection api ? or with anyother tensorflow api or with opencv, which way is best? other suggestions are also welcome.
Is there a way to render in blender without any lightning in fact render the same object like the one in material viewportshading.
I want my render to look exactly the same like the one in the picture (sorry, I don't have a good camera)6
Said just fuck it and pre-ordered the latest Gopro 7 black.
Been wanting to buy a proper easy to carry camera with stabilization. This seems to have hit the mark on features I want.
I have never ever pre-ordered anything before. Hope I won't regret this.
I recently un-boxed a pixel 2, though great on the specs side, I wouldn't buy it because of the looks and weight,
It just doesn't feel great in the hand, I mean if am spending that much, I should feel am holding a premium device at hand, but It feels like a dummy,
Camera might be great, but the bezel was too big
Real camera simulation:
I know how to simulate the optics part given the camera calibration model and parameters.
I would like to know how to characterize the grey level values given X amount of light, which I assume is more the CCD part.
Why does my Android camera app mirror my selfies, and why again, as I already turned this off some time ago. Only noticed when there was a sign in the background. Annoying misfeature, wtf (yes, please tell me why this is a great feature for you, this might actually make me happier)2
What are some tips for shooting and editing cell phone videos?
WTC was great but somehow send the camera app algo decided to process out the sun and a lot of colors....
Any way to fix it sorta like Lightroom?

Can anyone recommend any tutorials and assets to use when making movies/animations in unity?
Looking to turn my book series/potential game into a little series if i can get the hang of it.
I already know im going to use cinemachine for my camera system and I'll build my own audio management and trigger systems (Hopefully).
And a side note, does anyone know of anyone who would do some 3D character modeling if i was able to provide some character concept art and have a chat with them?
and now i stuck at my app..
the fuckin camera that i call with intent can take a picture, but the picture isnt saving anywhere..
googled and tried several codes but nothing worked..
Does anyone know how to add an overlay to a camera feed so it can be feed to a program like zoom? Idealy live so i can like add palm trees with the press of a button.
(I usualy use mit's processing ide for graphics)7
A rant but not devrant
I was just sending a video that I took with my phone while explaining a concept to my friend, the video took too long, the Internet was really slow 😒
When it was done I went and checked the size of the video, it was like 340 MB 😅😅
The problem was my phones camera
Sony Xperia z1 camera 16 MP😁
If I make a character oscillate on my screen, and match its time period to my camera's fps, it should seem still on my camera in theory right? I tried to implement it like this: https://www.paste.org/115774 but I can't figure out what could be going wrong, my guesses are either I'm expecting too much precision, or my camera's fps fluctuates a little, either way, please let me know what you think could be going wrong.18
bezelless ist just an fbi-method to avoid sticky tape over the camera for it would affect the screen.
seriously i am just excited and a bit bragging over my new black friday xps13 93003
Does anyone else constantly confuses android's camera icon with play store icon ?
I know, its minor thing but it drives me nuts...
Ok Google. Thank you for providing a sample app to take a picture. Also, FU for making the basic sample camera 2 fragment in excess of 1000 lines of code.
Okay soo I’m not a database guy.. I’m an embedded engineer but I’m helping one of my interns make a hardware tracking database... so we are tracking assembled products (dev samples).. but also tracking the pcbs within the product.. depending on the product it might have more than one pcb or contain other components to track.
The question is how would I set up the relationship in the tables, so depending on the say “type id” of the product it would link to a table full of feilds specfic to that “type”.. say the product is of type phone and has a pcb of this and a camera of that.. blah blah blah.... but say another product is of type “washing machine”.. which has no screen, it has a different pcb, but also has other things..
There would be a type table .. washing machine, phone, tv, camera, pcb, ecu.. etc.. but those type would need their own tables...
I guess the question is how to relate a field to different tables depending on the value of the field... is this portion all done thru query results and logic rather than pure data base schemas?
What would be the question in terms of database lingo to google search the answer lol2
A few days ago, our latin teacher asked the ICT coördinator to borrow the poor camera of the school to record the lesson. She knows that I am the computerfreak of the class so she gives me the camera and she explanes me how to use it like I don’t fucking know how to use it. She said me that she didn’t know how much space there is left on the SD-Card and so the camera could stop filming. I started up the camera and the first thing that I saw: 27’22”, such a stupid bitch. We returned the camera and said: You could see on the display how many minutes there were left. She seemed pretty ashamed, she ignored us and walked further.7

Anyone used Flutter yet? Planning to build an App, but don't want to have to write for both platforms. Can you launch Android Activities, i.e. specialised camera activity?1
The OP6 camera app is actually good?
Just went through the latest batch of photos I took. I used the default Camera app for half (no RAWs) and OpenCamera for the other.
They were on different days and weather but I just went thru the Camera JPGs and couldn't find any that I would want to mentally correct...1
Didn't happen to me, but to a friend. It was freshman year of college and we were taking an intro engineering course where we had to take apart an old camera and replace some gear in the camera with one we designed ourselves to change the shutter speed. We were split into groups of 3 and had to submit our first lab report detailing our design plan by week 2 into the quarter. Right before the due date, one of the kids in my friends group DROPS OUT OF COLLEGE because he thought the project (2 weeks in) was too hard, leaving my friend and her partner to finish his third of the report that he didn't do. They didn't even get a third partner for the remainder or the class. Two people had to bear the work of a quarters worth of assignments meant for groups of 3. Thankfully they were able to do everything and got a passing grade in the end.
Of course it's you who developed that camera app in phone. Your relatives will ultimately end up giving tips to you by how you can use this camera features.
Why does an app built using Appcelerator, which runs beautifully on iPhone, run TERRIBLY on Android? 😡😡Camera permission issues, trapping Android back button, grr!3
