Thread: For those driver who loves and hate camera!

    Default For those driver who loves and hate camera!

    anyone has any idea what the setup in..

    red light camera,

    speed camera,

    gantry (ermm... camera or sensor?),

    it'll be interesting to know what's in a red-light cam and what setting.. shutter speed.. what flash.. angle... what film (it's b&w? i think i heard before) or does it perform in low light etc...

    since most of us know theory on photography.. this thread might became something like a '知己知彼' kinda...

    Perhaps it is CMOS DIGICII or Sony CCD. If use film, it would be fun to speed thru the cameras while they are checking the films.

    Roll a shopping trolley or ride your bike across the sensor while it is red light (preferably late at night when theres no cars)

    haha.. to break one and find a 1dm2 + 14mm inside i would break a few more...

    when red light cam already exist i dont think there was advance digital cam to capture fast movement... and many times i see those pple bringing down to cam pole to work on something.. so i guess film perharps..... now probably should upgrade it havent..

    I've no idea about the speed camera's setup but one thing for sure, the flash is indeed VERY VERY POWERFUL! I was behind this car which got 'flashed' by the PIE speed camera and gosh! ... I was blinded for a good 2s!

    Can you imagine what will happen if that car brakes abruptly after getting 'flashed', with a 'termporarily blinded' driver (me) behind him!!!??? He gets a ticket (& demerit points) ... and probably a brand new bumper as well! If that happens, I wonder if I can claim against TP for causing the accident?

    Fixed speed and red light camera are film type. When the film used up even when a car speed across, it will still flash however no image taken.

    those cameras used to catch bus lane offenders use panasonic lumix fx9. confirm panasonic. you can see them in operation during morning hours.

    seriously you think anyone who has info will leak it over a public forum?

    They should make these cameras and lens for the consumers. Able to capture license plates under low light, able to freeze the motion of speedy cars.. wow!

    I believe the lens must be a 85mm f1.0, and ISO 1600 IR film...
