  • Quantifying Camera Spec Locations

    In November, Richard Smith posted laboratory summaries, which if you
    weed through the vendor bashing, most of it makes sense. However, I
    have yet to come to a conclusion: How to objectively decide, based on
    known quantifiable measurements, where to place your cameras to get the
    lowest, vibration free location. We know about the various lighting
    conditions, types of lens etc. But what about Floor/Tripod-Camera or
    Ceiling-Wall mounted/Camera vibration, is there any data.

    For instance, With your cameras on tripods, how much vibration from
    your raised "computer" non-reflective flooring is acceptable? Obvious
    zero vibration is the answer, but is there a true zero vibration? Are
    there any studies?

    Or, With wall mounted or ceiling hung cameras, are there certain wall
    board specifications or other "Objective" guidelines to the level of
    acceptable vibration? If your wall is vibrating due to whatever, it is
    going to affect the camera's recordings?

    We know its ideal to have ground floor/basement locations with no
    mechanical/electrical/elevator/subway train, etc. interference. But
    sometimes the lab will take any space to be functional.

    Thank you in advance. All responses will be posted.

    "A Vendor" seeking answers

    As a "Vendor" we are asked by the architects, the Ph.D. the
    scientists... We can give opinions, provide site discriptions that this
    group does this and they do that, but their must be acceptable

    I will post summaries of responses.
