  • Neat! Looks like some repurposed Arlo parts in there too!

    Is that an aluminum base ?

  • All new parts, no carry overs from Arlo and yes aluminum base.

    Tad wasteful on the network data. The photo could have easily been pre-processed to under 100 kB before uploading.

  • I took care of the to large of file problem, now use your imagination 😀

    I was being serious. Put some effort in. If it makes you feel any better, you're far from the only culprit dumping huge photos on the forums.

  • 👍

  • sharp looking! nice work.

    Ah, that sure is dimensionally small. Mainly you just want to wind up the JPEG compression factor. Cameras default to minimum compression to preserve maximum detail.

    Halving the horizontal and vertical resolutions is also effective, but no further, because the camera's imaging sensor component colour elements are usually arranged in a 2x2 grid and therefore it requires four camera pixels to form the complete colour of each stored pixel. So the colour info is actually less dense than the stored pixels.

    Trimming the photo edges can help too but looks like you've done this already.

  • First test drive of P2arlo , not very elegant but it's progressing!

  • So when do we see a figure 8?
