Comment Post #286426 This isn't a bad idea, it's just the cart in front of the horse. In theory, the winners of the monthly contests could be used, but I stopped bothering with those because of the rudeness as outlined here https://outdoors.codidact.com/posts/285028/285060#answer-285060 Until its worth people's time to p...

Answer A: What is the difference between dot and pixel?
In either a print job or a digital picture at the smallest level there are individual color markers, in print that is called a dot, and on a computer, it's called a pixel. The difference between the two is whether the image is physical or digital. On say a 4x6 inch picture, the more dots/pixels th...

Question How much battery power does a GoPro 9 use in standby mode on a scheduled photo?
I have a GoPro 9 and it has the option to wake at a specific time and take a photo/video/timelapse. However, some of the timelapses use 90% of a full battery (official GoPro model) and in the standby mode some battery is used. How much battery power does a GoPro 9 use in standby mode?

Question How long does the time lapse interval need to be to capture shadows during the middle of the day?
Shadows move faster at the beginning and end of the day, and so a time-lapse with an interval that would show movement then probably won't at the middle of the day. What should the interval be for shadow movement during the middle of the day?

Answer A: Consider excluding your ‘Contests, Critique’ category from ads?
Sorry but no. Contests are one of the easiest things for new members to join as all one really needs is a camera, and so I deliberately advertise them. I do think the feature request to customize the text makes sense, but I am not going to wait until then to advertise the contests.

Answer A: How to align a lithophane on an 3d printer with a moving bed like the Ender 3?
First, one should align the lithophane vertically as that way you have better resolution than printing flat against the bed. Secondly, they need to be aligned with long end in line with the direction the bed moves. For an Ender 3 using Cura as a slicer, this would be the y-axis. The reason for ...

Question When printing lithophanes with an Ender 3 Pro and a 0.4mm nozzle what is the maximum width for best resolution?
Given that the difference between black and white on a 3d printed lithophane is the width of the plastic, the greater the difference between the max and the min-width the more variation of grey the lithophane will end up with. Increasing the width, however, increases the cost and print time and th...

Question How can I optimize pictures for making them into lithophanes?
I have been 3D printing some lithophanes, and so far I have been doing so with pictures that I took a while ago. If I were to go take pictures with the purpose of turning them into lithophanes, are there types or techniques for taking pictures that will work well for that?

Question What kind of software is used for creating time-lapses of 3D printers?
For a lot of time-lapses of 3d printers like this one the picture is taken when the hot end is either out of the picture or in the same place so that the focus is on the object being built, not the hot end moving around?

Answer A: How to capture a competition rifle shooter with a bullet in flight?
It's going to be difficult to capture the shot because the setup's the people use to take these kind of pictures are done in such a way as to trigger the camera at the exact right time and the gun isn't usually being held by a human. They also tend to use slower bullets for easier timing. - Bullet...
