Re: Charging Kodak DCS 5xx, 6xx and 7xx Batteries

Quite late my answer but yes, each li-ion cell have their own controller chip since they are recycled cell phone battery, good original ones, mostly motorola and blackberry since they proved to last on spec the longest. Also because of this behavior the integrated batery meter on the nc2000e is tota...

Re: Charging Kodak DCS 5xx, 6xx and 7xx Batteries

On my NC2000e the batteries just leaked out, so i'm running it on li-ions, i made a higher voltage series connection than what camera needs so the charger will always undercharge the li ions for safery measures, since the li ions are from much higher capacity that the original ni-mh i can get even m...

Re: Diffraction on Pro14n?

Wow amazing the fact of the macroscope, tho i remember to use a reversed 18-55 kit lens as a loupe and the results were astonishing, using that and extension tubes i could even make very low contrast macros of small bug eggs. Quite funny the 1D issue... i still can't imagine how people that pay a ca...

Re: Diffraction on Pro14n?

Since i knew about them i always wanted a 600 or 700 series, they still have that Kodak colours but in a bigger pixel count sensors, quite usable for today standards even... not like for prints but more than enough for displays. So... you are saying the 1Ds also bleeds that bad? i'm going to look fo...

Re: Diffraction on Pro14n?

Hi Stan, thanks for your answer. Yes, i'm thinking is actually a sensor problem since everything else is fine, tried also with a 105mm and the problem is the same, i've seen some bleeding issues but not as bad as this, to the point it looks like the lens had a haze issue. Now having the 14n i comple...

Diffraction on Pro14n?

Hi everybody, some days ago i got a 14n, i like it so far, kind of clumsy software but works fine. I took a few test shots and i noticed a haze problem, which is very strange. the test lens is a Micro-Nikkor 55mm f1:2.8.. is dead sharp and perfect on a D750, also it produces the problem on every ape...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

And we went light sensitive...

Everything is ready to store all those LED blinks to something so i can read it on a computer and make a file to open in something and see if there is a picture, or something like it.

We are close folks!

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Slowly restarting the development. Just testing if the Xilinx tolerate 5v signals (the one the DCS has) and not only the 3.3v modern ones https://i.ibb.co/9HCxh3C/367c3a78-d4b1-40d7-b3d8-0da7ddeec247.jpg Then will be time to get my rusty Verilog code and my rusty coding and port the existing code fr...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Thanks for the support! you know, i haven't give up yet, actually taking advantage of free market in Peru i've bought 2 CPLD boards, much more compatible with the DCS hardware, an SDRAM board for buffer and the programmer for the CPLD, it still remain in its bags but as i return to Argentina, which ...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Hi everybody, if there's somebody left... from the last post, i wired, tested and nothing was correct, everything was wrong, everything i measured was wrong, the fpga didn't liked at all my board with shifters... or maybe was the wiring... also it was december from a very complicate year and i was t...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Well... today i finished building the shifters, tomorrow i will be wiring it up to the FPGA and testing if they work... .... fingers are crossed https://i.ibb.co/9qb85v7/253546fe-fadc-4790-8544-3b270091b1e5.jpg https://i.ibb.co/1QqHmhv/56435054-7507-4cb9-b599-d9c9ac437181.jpg https://i.ibb.co/bWk1CX...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Well, the level shifter arrived, but they are so small that i'm soldering to a breadboard in order to be able to use them and is quite a job... maybe next week will be news about it

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Well this is going slooow, i found that my level shifters can't deal with real data or clock speeds, so i ordered new and better ones from the states.. they'll be arriving in a few days, i hope... also comunicating with the display seemed imposible, probably due to the level shifters.
