Add Your Preferred Camera Manufacturer to the CalculatorAuthor: John Honovich, Published on Feb 03, 2016
One of the most popular features of our Camera Calculator is choosing specific models. Indeed, members select models for 80%+ of their calculations. And selecting the model helps significantly, as the map then shows what AoV the camera supports (plus equally important, what it does not) and what the IR range is specified to cover. Overviewed here:
Though we support over 40 manufacturers and more than 3,000 models, we have made it easier to add more (on the backend), as we regularly get requests for manufacturers or models not yet included. Indeed, in the past week, we have added Digital Watchdog, IDIS and FLIR FC cameras, to name a few.
Now, we will add any manufacturer / model as long as two pieces of information are provided:
- A CSV sheet listing the model name, resolution, form factor, focal length, AoV and IR range of the camera (here is an example of an approved csv sheet).
- A zip file of cropped images showing each camera, named by model (here is an example of an approved zip file of images).
These can be emailed to email@example.com.
Bonus: For the first 3 people who comment on the post, requesting new manufacturers or models, we will add 10 models each to show how quick this is.
Let us know if you have feedback, questions or requests.
