    Default Mirror mirror on the wall...

    Thanks to Kelvin_k who has loaned me a wireless camera to replace the mostly dead one I was fiddling around with in another thread. We have all systems go for a trial this Wednesday and in honour of the premiere guin... volunteer* I dub thee FeverCam. As you can see in the picture the gain is a little high on the recorder in the bathroom, lightling levels should be lower in the stadium to give better video. Also, it's quite comfortable, the camera and battery weigh next to nothing so it shouldn't impact too much on the play I would think, only one way to find out.

    * No problem BF, there's 10 years of biking sweated into the helmet, wouldn't subject anyone to the interior.

    Default Photography Thread!

    What a great thread idea! Why didn't it exist already!?
    I don't have many action shots of badminton, but I just went through some old photos of games with friends at Monash, here are two which clearly display the disadvantages of plastic shuttlecocks. (Thanks go to my friend David, for taking the photos with his iRiver.)
    Argh... I swung and hit, then searched for it until I realised that people were laughing at me.

    It's not due to the plastic shuttle.
    It's due to your 16 lbs strings.
    Beside, that is a backyard type of plastic shuttle.

    haha. that's funny. for feather shuttle, if it hits the area right next to the frame, it is possible for the string the break and then the shuttle get stuck there in a similar fashion, i have seen it happen before.

    Default Helmet mounted camera results

    Not a raging success, managed to get the captures below. Video quality needs some work, images are way too bright which should be correctable with a filter. There is a problem with vertical sync which could be due to a number of things. Anyway, worth another go Friday, I'll be bringing some seasickness tablets along too.

    no problem with colour nor brightness with the camera through the tv so both are being introduced by the capture device. picture is solid here so there must be some interference there.

    Lightbulb Outdoor Equipment

    Okay, thanks to many reply posts and comments at Friday's social games, CCC@Waverley, I now know what an outdoor badminton shuttlecock looks like and that it should be hit with some sort of different racquet. I thought that it looked so strange compared to the usual plastic (indoor) shuttle.

    ..and fun stuff you've got going there, DoublesPlease..
    Hmm, i wonder, were you a bit cautious when playing?? what was the reaction of your opponents whilst serving and playing against you?? Were they constantly aware that you had a camera sitting on the helmet??..Were they smashing away the shuttles as usual??..
    Btw, just curious, what kind of wireless camera were you using??..

    Default Bounce

    Kelvin, you were right. I updated the driver to the capture card and set it to PAL and no problems. Try again next Wednesday.

    Picture below is of a raw egg after being dropped from about chest height onto a 10mm slice of sorbothane. Yes, it bounces and kept on bouncing: I needed roughly 30 shots to get the timing right, my knees say oh yeahhh. This originally started out looking for some cool highspeed racquet meets shuttle shots but the strobe is only a cheapy party fixed interval thing without triggering and the timing is tricky. I have a recipe for a sound trigger here which should straighten things out.

    villeneuve: I won't pass up any chance to show off my new slr, we can give it a go next Friday if you're about.

    ctjcad: It's a 2.4 or so GHz one I think, 9V battery operation and has JMK written on the side and although it makes a handy bullseye the guys down the other end were playing nice. Great thing about it is there's live feedback on the laptop. Virtua badminton... Left, left I said LEFT. SMMMAASHHH.
