I don’t know how to make a Raspbian system image, but if someone did, it would be nice to put the entire image up on a repository with ptpcam, libptp, and libusb pre-installed and tested.
I was planning to do this, actually. It’s on the to-do list for further down the track, though, once it’s all been tested properly…
Is there somewhere in particular you’d want the disk image to be hosted?
The other piece of the pre-configured microSD card would be to install some type of server to show all the beautiful images.
Yeah… I’m not really all that familiar with setting up web servers, especially not on an RPi. But it certainly could be done…
By the way… I realise this is going off-topic from my original post, but… you guys are the only people responding to my support requests, anywhere on the Internet…
I sent a Theta V to a friend further south than I am and he got a heap of photos with aurora in them the other night.
There is a screenshot I have taken from a timelapse he compiled, which shows the problem I’m now facing…
Screenshot here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vkfo2wmfk40wga4/ThetaVAuroraRedHemisphereExample.png?dl=0
All images I (or my friend) have taken with the Theta V have this strange discolouration to them in one hemisphere (i.e. as if one lens is faulty). As you can see from the screenshot, there is a clear vertical line, with one half of the sphere having a red tinge to it (to the right of the screenshot). (The left half of the screenshot shows a dull aurora and some town lights).
Has anyone else experienced this issue? It may be a long-exposure issue - this image was taken at ISO 2000, 30 sec.
My own photos from last week with the same camera (similar exposure settings) had the same issue.
Admittedly, these images were taken using the Theta app, not via ptpcam, and so are using the Theta app white balance presets, rather than a manually-defined colour temperature (through ptpcam). So I’m hoping that may be the cause of the problem. I’m still waiting to get the camera back from my friend before I can do any testing of my own.
For what it’s worth, I didn’t have this problem when I was testing the Theta SC a few months ago. Perhaps I’ve got a bodgy Theta V and should send it back under warranty?
