PiNoIR – what’s it for? Comparison of RasPiCam and Pi NoIR Output in Daylight #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Alex at RasPiTV shows how his new Pi NoIR stacks up against his RasPicam for daylight photography and draws some conclusions about the Pi NoIR’s uses:
It’s not for regular daylight photography. Here’s what Pi NoIR IS for:
camera effects e.g. black and white IR photos
low-light photography with IR lighting
wildlife photography (nocturnal with IR lighting)
specialist archaeological applications
specialist botanical applications
And of course, a lot of us will get one to experiment with. I have in mind a project involving either a servo or solenoid and a light sensor to control the position of an IR cut filter for a 24-hour surveillance camera.I hope this helps you decide whether the PiNoIR is for you or not. I haven’t yet sorted out an IR source, so can’t show anything useful as regards night-time shots.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
