The bit you did on piezo accelerometer was interesting, double plus good. so a separate episode on them would be welcomed.

Wow, first time you've torn down something I was actually involved in! :) The Visteon 6000 CD, and you didn't say anything bad about it! The reason there is a connector and contacts on the front panel is because the black number section on the front is removable for theft protection (flick the lever on the top left to remove it). The silver bezel means that it was made for the Ford Puma. However, for cost reasons, the cheap-skates left the security part black (the unit was completely black in the Ford Fiesta).

Ref the bit you done on the low light camera at the end of this mail bag slot. I am assuming that you Aussies have 50Hz mains. With the frame rate of the camera set to 60Hz, the flicker on the picture will be very noticeable. You noted that when the frame rate was set to 48Hz (???) that the flicker was barely noticeable.

I further assume that the lighting in the lab/office was LED based. That being the case, the flicker will be even more noticeable, as unlike older incandescent lighting which have a thermal lag during each cycle, the LED's they switch on and off a lot faster hence making the flicker even more noticeable.

Great videos - keep 'em coming  :-+

wow the Manufacture of the Cams look cool. When my Health is ever been better I want make some IR Pictures.
For that I need a Cam Module (!) who have no IR Filter build in.
Are there some Modules (Camera Chipsets) who are affordable who are sensitive to the "higher" IR Ranges to who some optical System could work to?
I know from some Data Sheets that some Cam Chipset Company have an API to set some settings in the Chipset them self not in "post processing".
Are those Accessible via USB?
