Disqus-comments, formatting

Here Is a small guide in Disqus-formatting, that I have ‘published’ several times on the old GSMArena.com blog (with tiny variation).

UPDATE: Should in 2019 finally be more or less obsolete for wide enough windows!

Windows, Oddity with Schtasks.exe, and falsely reported error.

If you run a command like this it works fine to any remote machine

    schtasks.exe /query /s SomePC /U MyAccount /P XXXXX

If you try to let it point back to your own machine you get an error-message

    ERROR: User credentials are not allowed on the local machine.

BUT this is actually FALSE!!!

BlackBerry Priv, Almost EIGHT days stamina, no tricks, though light usage.

I have previously contradicted the claim that the BB Priv has a poor stamina, but here an even longer run.

This is a collage to contain the almost eight days  (7d 20h), as the 3C Battery Monitor app can only show five days.

C# Set volume example

It took me quite some digging to find a clean way to set the standard default volume without external libs. So here the result.

If you do not want the console output, remove the writeline, and change the project from Console to Windows App.

I suggest using it as a Scheduled Task triggered by connect to user session and/or similar.

It is composed of a couple of bits and pieces combined/reduced primarily from these three.

BlackBerry Priv, 5¼days stamina, no tricks. Display on 50m/day

The BB Priv has a pretty nice stamina, if it is not too infested with bloat (mine is debloated).

Though some complains that a 3410 mAh battery is too small for a phablet with a 5.4″ QFHD display, it is enough for me.

5¼ days on 96% battery

This is with no trickery of radios off or similar. 4G, WiFi, NFC all turned on. GPS off though. ADD: BT off too.

The EASY way to make a C# Windows.forms app really per monitor DPI aware

As posted in another post, many apps have problems with windows scaling.

See these screen-dumps from Windows lengthy guide that was found here

Here is a reasonably minimalistic approach. You will often just need code like this:


    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            DPI_Per_Monitor.TryEnableDPIAware();
        }

        void SetUserFonts(float scaleFactorX, float scaleFactorY) {
            Font = new Font(Font.FontFamily, 11f * scaleFactorX, GraphicsUnit.Pixel);
        }
        protected override void DefWndProc(ref Message m) {
            DPI_Per_Monitor.Check_WM_DPICHANGED(SetUserFonts,m);
            base.DefWndProc(ref m);
        }

    }

You will need to obey a few rules, but often it can be implemented in existing code in minutes!

Save and restore positions of windows, WindowsPosSaveNRestore

WindowsPosSaveNRestore is a tool to save the position of windows for later restore

This is primarily useful if you frequently change display configuration, say add/remove external monitor(s) e.g. by docking, or turning a device with autorotate active.

Windows also has the bug that it sometimes cram all open windows (and icons [+]) on the primary screen on sleep.

Get new/changed files from WPD-device, e.g. Android. Enhanced version of Christopher Geers’ PortableDevices

I stumbled upon this nice project by Christophe Geers.

And edited and enhanced it to a tool that works a bit like an advanced REPLACE /UPDATE  to a tree on the PC based on the name of the device and the drives it exposes.

It is an efficient way to get changed & new files from a device to a PC.

Update: Now supports Exclude also.

It works with a WPD connected device, e.g. an Android device USB-connected in MTP or PTP mode.

Here an example of some of the tree generated

Most backup tools does NOT allow you to do an incremental backup, but they DO allow you to deselect e.g. images. So use this tool to do the incremental backup of the huge WPD-exposed stuff like the images/videos/music, and let your backup tool do backups of all the rest – and in more finite time than a total backup of everything every time – thus making it a bliss to take backups much more often….

Displaying images. Colour management, sRGB and ICC. And when something fails.

Update This post started as description of a problem with displaying some files in FireFox and Chrome, but has been transformed to a more general post about sRGB, ICC, CMS and what happens if the browser gets it wrong…

It all started when I detected that most colours in some web-files got severely distorted when displayed in FireFox and Chrome on my system. Both JPG and PNG files were affected

colourchart_1_2_cmp

If you see the first one of these two squares blue_1 and blue_1_removed_srgb substantially different from the second clear blue, your CMS system have similar issues…
The first one is supposed to be a standard blue, the second is blue LEDs on your monitor only.

Blackberry Priv – Bought one after all… (post is likely to become a sort of review)

blackberry-priv-overview[1]

Working with numbers in Q with large nominator/denominator in C#

A nerdy idea:

A C# class that quicly can supply a lot of primes (here limited to about the largest prime about 50G – as arrays with over 2G entries are not currently supported without splitting the arrays)

A struct that supports basic arithmetic for large accurately represented numbers in Q,  by factorization into primes.

A test program that tries to find solutions for a!b!=c! with 1<a<b<c

Ios Calendar, Various odd observations.

A couple of strange observations on the calendar in Ios

  1. Search only works within +/- one year from current date
  2. It is not only year 10000 safe, you can actually scroll way beyond year 100000 🙂
  3. You can scroll back in time even to BC, though strange bugs appears much before that
  4. Moving an appointment has some (academic) issues in the date selector

PhotoView with Delete&Transfer of matched files, e.g. RAW

This is a plain PhotoViewer with just TWO special function:

The ability to show more EXIF info than most and to delete or transfer matching partner files on request also, according to user defined masks.

E.g. Also handle RAW or cropped variant of a file named with predefined syntax.

PhotoView_Dump

Settings for position, size, splitter positions, last used folders… can be saved in users registry.

Download zip: PhotoView.Zip

This is a ‘work in progress’, so expect bugs might be present, and that things can still change quite a bit. (Last modified 2018-09-30)

Length of round (carpet) roll

Carpet

For some reason, surprisingly few know this extremely simple formula, please share it.

I have actually seen in a carpet store an employee unrolling the carpet to measure the length!!

[The formula is simple to prove too… r=kφ, L=∫r dφ=∫kφ dφ=½k(φ2²-φ1²)=½k(φ21)×(φ21)=½(r2+r1) ×n2π=(r2+r1) × nπ , q.e.d.]

Eye resolution test

I have made a simple test image to test the resolution of your eyes on a phone, phablet, tablet, laptop or PC!

The most common result is it is pointless to go beyond around 1/12000 of the viewing distance

Be SURE it is shown in the screens native resolution. e.g. 960 pixels should fill half a FullHD display. (or use one of the added ones with your screens resolution)

Be SURE that your browser or your windows settings doesn’t do any zooming or smoothing, i.e.  one pixel in the image is one pixel on the display. (If in doubt take a magnifying glass -or macro camera- and look closely on the screen, it should be like the mock-up later in this post)

ResolutionTestText_qFHD

 

It is the point where the single line pair is indistinguishable from the double line we are looking for (that is where it is looks like one continuous thick line)

You will most likely find the finest resolution using the red or green figure.

Use any prescribed glasses that you normally would for the distance – we are testing resolution, not focusing ability.

NOTE: If you got a PenTile display, usually the green will do fine! Have a look at this on different subpixel arrangements. Several pixel arrangement exists out there, that could have similar issues…

Digital camera sensor sizes – selling elastic bands by the metre

When a sensor is advertised/sold as 1/2.3″ most people would think that is the diagonal of the sensor. Well it is NOT! It might even vary drastically between manufacturers.

For historical reasons the diameter of a fictitious Vidicon tube with the same active area is what is advertised!!

Megapixel-craze and tiny sensors & lenses. Myths & Facts

This is an attempt to replace some of the common myths, urban legends and misunderstandings with some facts.
(last updated 20181103)

There are at least three physical issues and one biological that are interesting:

1) Rayleigh’s criterion and sensor width.

F * √N < W , (N number of sensors in Mpixels, W in mm, red light F numerical aperture)

AR-principles[1] Airy_disk_spacing_near_Rayleigh_criterion[1]

2) The eye’s real life resolution

Resolution beyond 1/12000 of viewing distance is pointless for most

3) Thermal noise.

Relative noise increases by 1/d, (+)almost √n and √T, (N number of sensors in Mpixels, d sensor diameter, T in kelvin, i.e. °C+273.15)

4) Effective pixel count

The effective pixel count falls with the amount of light, the less the pixel size the worse.

5) Stacking images

Stacking can compensate, but can not perform miracles.

 

6) Thickness of device versus sensor size

The angle of light to the sensor edges binds max sensor size to thickness.

Panasonic TZ70, Review

Panasonic Lumix TZ70 (ZS50 in the US)

Upgrade of TZ60 with larger/fewer pixels, RAW and better viewfinder, but removed GPS.

This post is likely to be enhanced/edited over the next days and weeks

Eske Rahn 2015-04-25

Overall: Really satisfied. 10/10

1426237696653[1] 1420186774799
The only real competition today is the upcoming HX90V from Sony, that haven’t got RAW, and have pixels as small as the TZ60

Overview

The TZ60 took much beating due to the small pixels, And Panasonic answered that by increasing the pixelsize by a factor 150%, and thus reducing the pixelcount by the same to 12MP.
This is an obvious upgrade from Fujifilm F900EXR, that are beaten or on par in all areas, less triffles.
See my review of the F900EXR here. On which this review to some extend will be based.
Practically the whole plus-list could be repeated, and most of the cons are not there!!

How to obtain good stamina on an Android phone

Summary

  1. This thread is general in nature, but based on my Xperia neo Pro.
  2. Xperia phones DO have good stamina if set up and used correctly
    I can get 4½ days of stamina WITH 3G+WiFi+Virus Scanner ON
  3. Set Brightness to 100%, and use widget “Brightness On/Off“,
    Use On in direct sunlight only.
  4. Set Screen time out to 30 sec.
  5. Use the app AdBlocker to block specific apps from data connection.
  6. Use the app WapDroid to only allow WiFi at specific geographical ‘points’. (By Cell-ID NOT gps)
  7. Have the phone at optimal position.
    Place on the desk not in the pocket while working.
  8. Exit apps if possible when you are finished.
  9. “Ads within Android apps found to consume 75% of the app’s power.”
  10. Avoid task-killers on the bloatware.
    (The repeated killing and resurrection eats a lot of battery)
  11. Avoid ‘clever’ battery-apps in the background doing more harm than good.
  12. Note that the percentages in Battery Use are based on estimates.
  13. Consider if you need background data traffic or not.
  14. The “Android System”-drainage bug!
  15. Finally I have a few tests , if the above did not do the trick.

Central entry point on batteries

(at least this is my intention on how it should end and be used)

It should give info about batteries, how the phone uses them, and (hopefully) with some good hints to how to get the most out of each battery (Life and Stamina). Many of the hints go for other hardware with Li-Ion batteries as well. Say Laptops, Toothbrushes…..

 

This thread is originated from SonyEricssons Xperia phones.

s

Summary

On problems with weird drops and raises: Try “Johan’s Trick” below once

The currently best advice I can give for the usage pattern is

Try to charge fully and deplete to about 40-50%bc

Once in a while drain battery deep to get calibration right

Keep phone on desk/in bag, avoid pockets, to keep cool.

Leave phone idle while charging (e.g. while sleeping).

 

Note that the ‘remaining percentage’ you see is an ESTIMATE not a measurement!

Ricoh CX1, Review

Sorry this is Danish only – and text only (almost). For English please try translate.google.com version

Ricoh_CX1_ph_08

OVERBLIK
Et fantastisk lækkert kamera, omend det er lidt fysisk stort af et kompaktkamera.

PROS

  • + Hurtigt!
  • + Fabelagtig makro (over 4000 DPI!! Ja, kun ti bølgelængder af lys per pixel!!!)
  • + Imponerende skærm
  • + Rigtig god billedstabilisator
  • + 7 x zoom
  • + 28mm ækvivalent vidvinkel
  • + Mange muligheder for kontrol og indstillinger.
  • + Flere slags “Bracket shooting”, hvor der tages en stribe konsekutive billeder med forskellige indstillinger.
  • + High-Speed burst-mode. Op til 120 vga-billeder på 1 sekund
  • + double-shoot DR mode hvor den tager to billeder med forskelige indstillinger og merger. Godt til fx modlys.
  • + Manuelt fokus (BURDE være selvfølge hos alle…)
  • + Man har en smule manuel blænder-kontrol
  • + Efterbehandling af billeder muligt direkte i kamera, hvid-balance, lys, Kontrast, trim, ‘Skew’
  • + Digital zoom kan sættes til at klippe, og IKKE strække billedet.
  • + Vaterpas (“level”) til at fortælle om man holder kamera lodret/vandret.

Mulighederne for kontrol og indstillinger inkluderer

  • + To komplette set af manuelle indstilling kan gemmes og hentes via ‘programhjul’
  • + Knap hvor man kan gemme en af 12 fuktioner man finder interessant.
  • + Fire funktioner af elleve kan lægges på ‘menu’ under anden knap.

Der er dog et par ‘torne’ i rosenbusken, men jeg synes ikke de er alvorlige….
CONS

  • – Autofokus i dårligt lys.
  • – zoom, svært at lave lille ændring, lidt vel følsom kontakt.
  • – High-Speed burst-mode skriver i nyt cipa format, der ikke rigtigt PT supporteres af noget (endnu?).
  • – Video er behandlet som et stedbarn…
  • – Ikke nogen stor sensor, så begrænset lysfølsomhed. (Dårligere end de bedste, men ikke ringe)
  • – I manuel fokus kunne de godt vise i display hvad fokus afstand er
  • – eneste blænde-kontrol er at man kan tvinge den til minimum (for afstanden)
  • – eneste lukker-kontrol er at man kan sætte maksimal lukker-tid
  • – JPG filer stemples 72 DPI, uanset fokusafstand.
  • – Den indbyggede ‘skew’ opretning klipper den nye billede til funden firkant, og smider resten væk. Bug/feature?

FujiFilm F60fd, Review

Sorry this is text only.

FujiFilm_F60fd

This review is relative to the review of the closely related F50fd

Excellent light-sensitive camera, but rather slow. (Should be called F51fd)
This camera is almost identical to F50fd. See review on this.
It is primarily a firmware upgrade. Probably (?) with quite the same optics, CCD and IS

Only (real) differences
+ Improved AF (Fixed!)
+ Optional 6Mpixel with less hard compression
+ Slightly bigger screen
? Possibly a little better WB
? Possibly better zoom motor
– Poorer ergonomics, due to larger screen

  • + Nemt at skifte opløsning.
  • + God byggekvalitet
  • (Se detaljer nedenfor)

CONS

  •  – Irriterende tidspilde ved billedsletning

  • – Autofokus ikke imponerende
  • – ingen manuel fokus
  • – intet 100% manuelt mode
  • – Zoom ikke tiladt under video

Panasonic FX7, Review

Sorry this is Danish only – and text only. For English please try  translate.google.com version
Panasonic_FX7

PROS

  • Billedstabilisator fungerer fint, (men men bør tage et par skud af hvert motiv, da den ikke er 100% sikker)
  • Optik er vældig god og med ret små fortegninger.
  • Manual unødvendig, let at betjene, når man har lært/gættet det ulogiske valg at højrepil ofte er OK.
  • Automatik omkring hvidbalance er usædvanligt god, der skal ret ekstreme lysforhold til for at det er nødvendigt at gå væk fra default.
  • God videofuntion (trods opløsning), hvor billedstabilisering virkeligt kommer til sin ret.
  • God fysisk størrelse, dejlig stor skærm, der også fungerer rimeligt i sollys

 

CONS

  • En så banal ting som at tænd/sluk-knappen er omvendt så man let tænder kammeraet når man placerer det i lomme/hylster, i den naturlige retning med højresiden med håndledsrem opad. Den burde vendes om (eller drejes 90 grader)
  • Man kunne ønske sig lidt mere lysstærkhed, havde et Pentax s5i før, og fordelen ved billedstabilisator bliver – næsten spist af den mindre følsomhed
  • Som næsten alle små-kameraer: manglende loseless-compression mulighed. (Fx raw) Det burde da være mit eget valg, kan da bare bruge større/hurtigere/flere sd-kort. Hvorfor skal de vælge for mig??
  • Video begrænset til 320*240, men det er grundet alder, dette skulle være rettet i FX8 og FX9.
  • Batterilevetid begrænset, dette skulle være rettet i FX8 og FX9.
  • Selvom det ville give støj, kunne jeg godt have ønsket mig mulighed for optisk-zoom i videomode.
  • Af en eller anden grund er det heller ikke tilladt at lave digital-zoom i video-mode (som fx tilladt hos pentax). Ved ikke om det skyldes manglende processorkraft, eller blot dårlig software. Ærgeligt!
