Software & Accessories / Use your phone as a cosmic ray detector!

Physicists are looking to use the CMOS detector in your phone's camera to detect cosmic rays. Interesting, but they need 1000 inactive phones per square km.  :o Maybe you'd like to help them out?

Just noticed this report on the BBC. The serious issue is that Canon's Pixma priters have a major security flaw, the frivolous part is the hacker exploited it to run Doom. :)

Thought some people would be interested in this! There are discounts for Windows/Linux users, but you'll still have to pay $60/€50. Obviously Corel are going after Aperture users...

Photography Technique / photographing Lyrid meteor shower -advice?
« on: April 17, 2014, 01:18:52 PM »
I'm planning on trying to photograph a meteor shower for the first time. I've checked, and there should be dark moonless skies for the nights of the 22nd and 23rd April (UK).  I have a 5d3 and am planning to use my 17-40 lens. I have a tripod, a Hahnel Giga T Pro II wireless remote, a spare battery and warm clothing!  :) Unfortunately, I won't be able to totally avoid light pollution, but am prepared to just have a go and see what I can do, assuming that there will be some clear skies.

What settings should I use on camera/lens/remote? Any other pertinent advice?
