In this somewhat technical article we will unpack the bit raw still data that it produces and render it in a convenient color space. When the HQ module was announced a couple of weeks ago I was excited to discover that it came with a CS standard mount, opening the possibility of using any lens ever made with it — as long as it respected back flange limits and an adapter were available. Mine arrived a few days ago.
The CS mount affixed to the board has V1. What size P that refers to, we are not told. Its field of view is about Given its tinkering potential, I am sure I will not be the first or last to do so.
This portends a sensor active area of 4. It is capable of producing bit raw data when in still mode. You can read more about its specs and performance in the next article. The key is realizing that there are total rows and formatting the data accordingly. The 12 bytes of zeros mark the end of the active area all the way down to the th row. After that there are 16 additional rows of full length system data. In the past this non-imaging system data included optical black pixels that helped determine BlackLevels dynamically, but recent sensors tend not to have clearly demarcated such patches and I was not able to identify them.
Should you know more about these service rows and columns I would be interested in the details. The full function used in this page can be downloaded from the link at the end of the article.
There is very little information in the jpeg Exif tags and some of it is incorrect unless explicitly set by the user. The goodies are instead in the MakerNoteswhere we can find white balance multipliers, a compromise color matrix and more. The field is made up of a few hundred characters, here is the one from the capture in Figure 3 below:. It changes with the lighting, so I would guess that the module interpolates it based on the estimated illuminant.
Where does this matrix take us? It looks very much like a demosaiced, white-balanced data to sRGB matrix. To find out I took my setup to the balcony in a veiled, sunny, city afternoon to capture a purposely slightly defocused ColorChecker 24 target. It looks a bit desaturated. Very good results. Using the D Forward Matrix so discovered we can easily calculate matrices for any of the standard color spaces around this color temperature, as described in the linked article.
We now have the raw data, white balance multipliers and matrix necessary to render the captured raw image to a final color space. I used simplified demosaicing that results in a half height image with every final pixel corresponding to a BGGR quartet in the CFA, similar to dcraw -h. Figure 5. It produces a half-height image without interpolation.
See the linked article for details. The Black Level is about Much better, though we know from previous posts that this linear rendition probably still needs to be mapped into the smaller Contrast Ratio of typical display devices with the help of a Tone Mapping Operator or, at the very least, a bit of contrast. With mixed lighting and an estimated color temperature of K, the compromise color matrix from black subtracted, white balanced camera space to Adobe RGB was estimated to be as follows:.Check the Model for Jetson.

I will definitely consider booking another trip to Iceland or to any of the other locations Nordic Visitor offers.
Thank you for such a great trip. Margret is an absolute superstar. She was attentive and fully understood my needs. I will be recommending Nordic Visitor to everyone I know who is seeking a great service in the areas you look after, and I will be using you guys again in the future. Thank you for making our Icelandic trip unforgettable. All of the hotels were wonderful, and the staff was so nice.
Everything was in order, and there were no glitches with any of our reservations.
We especially loved the travel guide the itineraries were well laid out and we made good use of the suggested highlights and optional activities. We will definitely recommend Nordic Visitor to any friends who may be considering this type of trip. Iceland is a beautiful country filled with magnificent landscapes, spectacular waterfalls and fascinating cultural history. That is why we returned for a third visit. Knowing how popular Iceland is as a destination and that there were four of us traveling, I thought that having assistance in setting up our tour from Nordic Visitor would be beneficial.
It proved to be the best decision. She provided a great map with route, hotels and attractions marked and color-coded. She highlighted some special places for lobster, ice cream and pool with a view. Thanks to Nordic visitor and especially Helga for a great trip. It was also very good value and I believe cheaper than had we tried to organise the same thing on our own. The accommodation all over Iceland was really excellent and some would be highlights or favorites we'll remember a long time Honestly felt nothing was left out and the trip couldn't have gone any better and all 6 of us that were on this are in full agreement on that.
I cant' even express how easy it was to work with your company and how everything was thought out and delivered to us. Even if we didn't know we were going to need it. We thought that Sofia's organisational skills were excellent. She was professional, friendly and organised some excellent hotels - in terms of location and helpfulness of staff.
This was a fantastic holiday. A real adventure that we both thoroughly enjoyed.
Thank you for making this possible. The hotels were great, especially the one in Copenhagen and Flam. Everything was so well organized an thought through I. We had enough time in each of the places we visited as well. The night in Flam was perfect timing to slow down the trip and relax a little.
Excellent experience, timely communication. Very easy and low maintenance which is exactly what I want when booking with an agency.
We had an amazing experience. Everything went smoothly, we loved the hotels Helga chose for us, and the information we received before the tour was very helpful. I cannot wait to travel with Nordic Visitor again.Prices will be offered for the total runs scored during the 1st over of the match. Extras and penalty runs will be included.

This bloke knows his golf. I know nothing about the sport but I'll trust him with hard earned cash. I was sceptical to start but I'm glad I climbed on board, keep up the good work. I havent included the placed golfers. Long may it continue. I don't think so.
The best tipster out there at the moment, keep up the good work Craig. When is the next. Can't wait to win more. Just missed out with Casey as well. Glad I took the trial month for a couple of dollars and look forward to the next tips. I am glad I treated myself to a life membership last Xmas. I wish I started following him earlier.
