qvplay and the Casio QV-10 Camera

Linux software to control the Casio QV-10 camera is now available. Mr. Hepple tells us how to use qvplay.
Converting Casio CAM Files to JPEG or PPM

Itojun wrote cam2jpeg (sometimes written as camtojpeg) as a filter to batch convert CAM files to JPEG or PPM formats. It works with a whole range of Casio products that output the CAM format such as the QV-10, 10A, 30 and 100. It can also be found through ken-ichi HAYASHI's home page at http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~xg2k-hys/.

The camera works well in full daylight, as shown in Figure 3, a shot of the Singapore River from the famous “Boat Quay”. It also works well in very low light conditions, as shown in Figure 4, a shot of one of our wonderful food centres, “Lau Pau Sat”, in the business district.

Bob Hepple has been hacking at Unix since 1981 under a variety of excuses and has somehow been paid for it at least some of the time. It's allowed him to pursue another interest—living in warm, exotic places including Hong Kong, Australia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Lesotho and (presently) Singapore. His initial aversion to the cold was learned in the UK. His ambition is to stop working for the credit card company and tax man and to get a real job. Bob can be reached at bhepple@pacific.net.sg.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
