In order to celebrate the end of warranty for the Canon Legria R46 that I use for shooting this channel, I take it apart and install a rear facing microphone to it. Be warned, it’s a very rambly, blog-style video, and I do NOT take the camera completely to bits.
I hope this is going to bring a big step up in the audio quality of this channel for the upcoming year. I also bought a really cheap Canon IXUS 165 for doing dual camera work, so we’re really getting fancy around here.
The jist of the procedure performed is that I take the camera apart, circumcise an Audyssey measurement microphone and hot-glue it to the top of the camera.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
