The scale of things.
« on: October 07, 2013, 03:41:33 pm »
I have been wanting to post this for a while.

Many times, specially when there are closeups of different parts in the videos, I lose the sense of scale. It is not exactly clear how small or big what is being shown is.

Sometimes I get an idea when Dave's fingers come into the frame.

Anyhow, I think I would be useful to include in the frame, specially when making emphasis on the size of something, something with known size to be able to compare. Maybe Dave's ruler.

Any thoughts?

CH!

I think it would actually be a great idea to have a ruler.  For all we know Dave has baby hands and the Multimeters are a foot long.

A ruler would be neat, but a 1cm or 1 inch long item would be fine as long as its length was labeled.
