Nikon at IBC 2012

I had time today to stop at the Nikon IBC 2012 stand and here is what I found.

They mainly had the D4 and D800 on display, but they build this turntable in the middle of the stand with a stop animation out of Lego running on it.

By setting the camera frame rate to 25fps, the story unfolds in the viewfinder.

They also have on display this very complete Nikon D4 video configuration. This includes focus follow, stereo audio microphone, external viewfinder and headphones. All mounted on a frame for shoulder shooting.

They also have a Nikon D4 mounted on a full remote system that includes zoom and focus, but also high speed rotation for pointing the camera where you need it.

And by asking very nicely, they gave me a very unique USB stick in the shape of a Nikon camera with a removable Nikkor lense to give access to the USB socket.

Thank you Nikon.

(All images in this story was shot on a Nikon D5100 with Nikon VR 18-55mm Lens)

Double Bunk in Caravan

With our family expanding, we faced a challenge of adding another berth in our caravan, but I did not want to make it permanent.
A couple of options are available, of which one is simply to add a bunk to the single berth. We however did not want to cause any permanent markings on the interior of the caravan .

Netdata + SNMP + Mikrotik

Always wanted to see my Internet line usage as a gauge without having to log into the router.

CasparCG Simple Playlist

It is possible to build a simple playlist as a rundown in the CasparCG client. It will very simply play each item after each other that are on the same layer. In this very simple post I show how to build such a playlist including the very important step of activating the OSC.

The Open Sound Control (OSC) implementation is how the client knows what the server is doing and then being able to send new command back to the server when a piece of media has ended to trigger playback of the next piece. For more details on the OCS, please see
