Is there anyone out there who could make a really good tutorial/instructable of a photoshop digital illustration WITHOUT the use of a wacom tablet. (asking too much lol) Or rather, does anyone know where I can find some really mindblowing ones? I'm killing myself trying to find some good ones. Everything I see is using the wacom, and that's definately not in my budget. Thanks guys!

I've been looking into buying a micrometer, but having never owned (or for that matter, touched) a micrometer before, I am unsure of whether a digital or an analog one would be better. By better, I mean accurate, consistent, etc. Has anyone had any experience in buy a micrometer? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have a idea, to create digital soldering glasses but don't have any inclinations on what direction to go or what mats. to use. I have entertained microscope lenses, ben franklin-esk, lenses (not digital),surveillance pens( not sure how to zoom them),phone cameras( no idea how they zoom either (not in a diy fasion)) a small screen to a hacked digital camera scope, I am a experienced circuit developer with limited understanding of optics. so here is the question if not "think tank" disclosure. if you were to make "zoom glasses" what you use and why. other low tech to turn digital to be jewelry quality scopes. magnifying lenses for eyeglass repair, etc. thanks for your time and consideration.

I would like to change those settings with a potentiometer so by rotation or with a sliding linear spot. First question of i use a a mobile/iPhone camera is it possible to adjust those 3 settings electronically ? If yes what do i need to make one ? Thank you. Thomas.

Â¡Hola! IÂ´ve mounted an obsolete digital camera (Digmax of Famsung, 4 Mp)in the rear part of an old reflex and in this process, I lost the IR filter. The image in the LCD is fine and infrared ligth is not visible, but when I take a picture, then you can appreciate the effect. Why does it happen? I think that IR effect must be visible always, not only in the picture. IÂ´m sorry very much for my bad english. IÂ´m spanish ant it is not easy for me to communicate in this language. Other question: Is there IR filters for the reflex camera? I am thinking to buy one to adapt it to reflexÂ´s lenses and not put it in the digital objetive. Thanks in advance

So...my iBook G4 died a couple of months ago. At first, We Fix Macs thought it was a (known) logic board problem, but it turns out the motherboard is dead. I've recovered my hard drive, and have the carcass at home. Everything works fine except that it won't boot, or won't stay running once booted.Is there a reasonably inexpensive way to hook up an image player (like an MP3 or other thumb-drive type of thing) directly to an LCD display? Most of the digital photo-frame projects involve restructuring the components of a functioning laptop.I'm not about to try to get this done in time for Christmas, but for my wife's birthday (March) it'd be kind of cool.

Hi, What I would like to build is a digital signage kiosk. I am using a 32" LCD display and wood for the housing but I can't figure out in which direction to go regarding the hardware/software which would breath life in this stuff. Room is not a problem inside the housing, so I could go mini or a normal pc, x64 or ARM. The interface would be rendered in HTML (+java script for animation), which would contain some short (1-2 minute) video clips, but overall the requirements are not that big. So here comes the software decision: windows or android??? Android with smaller lighter (energy saving) hardware or the ARM powered Raspberry Pi is tempting, but maybe in the future I would incorporate touch capabilities which may need a more sophisticated hardware...I am confused, which way to go???? Regards, vedtam

I am gathering the materials for a project, and I need a small digital camera.The lens must not move, images must be downloadable via usb, batteries must be charged via the same usb.This camera is ideal, except it is way too expensive, and is a video camera (and it's from China, but that's another issue).This camera is ideal, except that the batteries are not charged via the USB, which makes my project much trickier (I'm going to be building the digital camera into another object).Can anybody recommend (or at least find online) a "happy medium" between the two?

Hi i have a rotating axis which i want to transform into a digital system. With this i mean it has a disc attached to it with numbers on it, which rotates with the axis. After the first disc there is another disc, which turns only a little bit, and only if the first disc has rotated 360 degrees(so that after 9 comes 10) This way i should be able to make a third, and fourth disc, which work the same way as the second. Then it is a counting system. I have thought about how i could do it, my ideas were all so complicated i could impossible make the discs a little close to eachother. Is there an "official" technique for this or does anyone of you have an idea how i could do this? thanks ps: here is a simplified image of it for if you didn't understand what i meant

I've been posting a lot of instructables on how to do certain photography techniques and tips, but they're all related to digital photography. Is there anyone who's interested in analogue photography and darkroom proccesses? I'm trying to get back into developing my own film and such, and I figure why not do a few instructables as I go.

Ever since i saw the 'ible on converting a land camera to take 35 mm film, I figured there had to be a way to take this even further. I'm even thinking the first baby step shouldn't be too hard- simply mounting a digital camera to the frame. Now, it would be a little more complex than this- taking the lcd screen off of the base, and putting it on the back of the camera, mounting the actual machinery of the camera where the original lens was, and perhaps even mounting buttons (or on some digital cameras, the wheels for 'scene selection' on the base of the land camera. The only problem I can find with this simple conversion is the fact that it seems most digital cameras use micro ribbons now, which would be (as far as I can tell) incredibly hard to splice and extend (which would be necessary to get the lcd screen, and other components mounted on the frame of the land camera). Does anyone have any ideas for this, or are is my goal too lofty? THanks.

Could someone tell me how to photograph negatives, and then process them into positive images? This is the best I can do, and when I invert the colors, it does not look right. (Ctrl-Alt-Cmd-8 on a mac) Any help would be appreciated, preferably with camera settings rather than computer adjustments. Second image is original print, I would prefer not to have to get expensive prints.

Hello! :D Some time ago I have bought a Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 digital, USB headset. Hmm...maybe it was not the best choice, but I want to convert it into an analogic one. In theory it is simple: I only have to remove the incorporated digital-analogic analogic-digital signal converter and connect the 2 wires of the headset to 2 Jack 3.5mm, one for the microphone and one for the speakers. Reason: my laptop's sound card is much better than the headset's built-in one. I am pretty sure that this converter is located in the volume control box: www.turbozone.ro/fotografii/Casti/Microsoft_JUG-00003.jpg But things may not be as easy as they seem. Or are they? As far as I have heard, the cable from the volume control unit and the headset consists in 2 wires. The cable of my old cheap analogic headset consists in 2 wires too. It shouldn't be complicated: the microphone wire get tied with the microphone wire and the speakers wire get tied with the speakers wire. But when I opened the old cheap analogic headset I noticed that each of the 2 wires branches out in 2 respectively 3 separate wires when they reach the headset: a blue one, a red one, a yellow one, a green one and a blue-yellow one. This is quite strange, isn't it? Or...do I have to worry about that?; should I simply tie the 4 wires together - old&cheap; analogic speaker wire with LifeChat's speaker wire and old&cheap; analogic microphone wire with LifeChat's microphone wire? I don't want to do somethig wrong.^^ Thanks in advance. :)

Well people, since no one want's to help me 'Build' a hardware crossover, perhaps someone on here might know of how I could use one of my spare laptops and feed my input signal to my amp into the mic port and equalize it/cut off the high freq's and send it back out the headphone jack. Surely there's some kind of program that would give me control over the output signal like giving it a sharp cutoff at 60hz or something like that. I'm tired of trying to figure out what to do with these laptops laying around, so that's why I'm asking would it be possible to turn my dell (2ghz 512mb of ram, simple audio card) into a digital crossover with even a visual output would be nice. Anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?!?? Thanks!

I was wondering is I could use the same system of using a 7 segment display to wire up a digital clock using el wire since nixie tubes are so much more expensive and limited to small size, or if i should wire it so that it is like a singular l.e.d. and where could i get smaller metal chicken wire fencing to further increase the nixie tube effect. Sorry for the bad grammar when I get an idea I tend to lack the proper way to describe it even though I can see it plain as day in my head

Hey peoples. I have a huge hang up on this and am wondering if someone can help me beofre I loose my mind. Ok here goes and if I explain something crazy please let me know. Ok I have a digitasl camera SVP that is great takes videos and pics reaslly good I love it. Ok so after trying to fiddle with different power sources I broke the parts inside where the battery goes, so no biggie I cna power it up via USB. fine give me a 1000 foot extension cord and Im off :) Ok so I have done this perfectly. I have a cigg lighter adapter that had USB, so I stick it in the lighter and it powers upo my camera just fine, I can also power it up via USB on computer.

Ok so then I got the black and decker power to go that also has a usb port, well that does not power it up either and i have no idea wy, this thing actually has a regular outlet so I imagine that it would put out great power, it even says can be used fo cameras. OK so does anyone have an idea of what I could make myself?? I even tried a 6 volt adapter wired to a USB plug and that wont even power it up.

Ever since seeing Bill Bailey live a couple of days ago, I was fascinated by the Theremin he used throughout his performance. I did a little googling and found that it's relatively simple to make one, but I didn't want to, I wanted one now! Back to google it was then, and I came across this beauty (link to .exe file).To play the Theremin, you click start, then move your mouse around the grid. The X axis controls note frequency and the Y axis controls volume.I'm now in the process of annoying my parents with it >:]

I was told by a few people that UV filters are useless on a digital camera. I also listened to the sales guy when I bought a DSLR just recently and he said "No they serve no purpose for the pics with a digital camera, but it adds a layer of protection to the front lens. UV filters are cheap, I bought it based on the salesman's advice. Yesterday it paid for itself . I was getting ready to take some pics of the neighbors new sports car and he was showing off, spinning the tires when it happened. The filter just all the sudden shattered. It had to be from a rock, but I could not find one anywhere.... anyway... The camera lens is fine and has a brand new UV filter on.

Hi everyone, I have a cheapo digital camera, a Norcent DC-1020. I've been trying so hard to figure out what kind of wall wart I need for it. It's rated at 3.3V and 2A, but here's what's confusing me, at the input it says "DCIN3.3V," which makes me think it needs a DC wall wart, but the sticker on the bottom says "3.3V [symbol] 2.0A max" where the symbol is two lines, one solid, one dashed. I thought that symbol was for AC?
