Ian Hex: Linux Photographer


Brought to you by: System76

What’s particularly rad about this tutorial is that the photos are processed using 100% organic, free and open-source software. That means it’s, of course, free of cost but also you’re free to modify the software exactly how you want. Furthermore, as it’s open-source, you are free to examine the inner guts of the software as much as you like and, should you wish to, you can modifications or even contribute advancements to the software yourself! You don’t need to worry about the cost of forced upgrades or deliberate obsolescence. It’s yours. =)

    It doesn’t appear as though i-nex has a shell variant, I’d like something that does the same thing though can be scripted. Anyone know of such a thing?

    Just found your show about a week ago and love it. It has been my inspiration to switch to Arch linux. Love it too so far (former Gentoo, Mint user) Watching this show, I found the announcment of the new OS from China as interesting and I remembered your comments when I stumbled upon the same words from the Arch wiki about being independently developed. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/FAQ under the Question

    Q) What distribution is Arch based on?
    Just pointing it out. :)

    Also, I find FLDT intriguing and I’d like to maybe roll it out in my environment. But I cannot find documentation on how to set it up. Does anyone know how? If I can get this figured out, perhaps I’ll write up a blog post that others could benefit from.

    Hey Chris,

    On the HDR topic…

    Some cameras have a feature known as “Exposure Bias Compensation”, I wrote an arduino sketch (using ptp 2.0 library @ http://www.circuitsathome.com/tag/ptp) and have tested it on my old Nikon DSLR. This can automate all the captures for you. If you have a Cannon they have example sketches that will do it IIRC. All you need is arduino with a USB shield, or the arduino ADK (which is what I used). I do not know what camera you have or if this would help, but if you have the parts I could help you get it started.

    Alternatively some of these new cameras have wifi support that will allow you to do it from your phone/tablet, but that’s a different bag of tricks.
