#Operating Instructions

#Control Elements

Control elements on the High Resolution Camera2 are bundled together into 3 distinct levels:

  1. Camera: Scene picture and video controls.
  2. Scene mode: Live view of the scene, rotation and magnification.
  3. Battery: Battery charge and function selection.

When all the controls are combined, a video is either "Normal" (same as "Standard" setting), "Movie" or "Pro" (exactly the same as "Standard" setting).

Note

Without OTG cable, live view of the scene can not be displayed as before. Only the center button on the big TV or touchpad on the back of the phone will show the live view of the scene.

Tap on center button on the big TV or touchpad on the back of the phone and a video of the scene will start. To start recording, use "record" button in the middle of the phone's screen.

#ON/OFF Switches

The ON/OFF switch is used to put the camera into standby, wake it up, and toggle between Still and Video Shooting mode.

If you do not use the camera for a while, it will automatically switch into standby mode. You can set the time limit in Settings mode. If the camera is in standby mode for a longer period of time, it will automatically shut down. You can set the time limit in Settings mode.

#Touch Gestures

The camera provides multiple touch gestures. You can swipe and pinch in, and swivel the phone to move from photo to photo. Users can also pinch in on the screen to view the feed and zoom in for a closer look at the photos.

You can also rotate the photo 90 degrees by sliding your finger in a clockwise direction around the image. You can then rotate it again to see the full frame.

Users can also tap on a square to view the number of the photo. You can press and hold on the photo to rotate it in any direction. You can also press and hold a photo to zoom in and out.

There is also a red and green arrow that appears to the right of a photo. You can press and hold on the red arrow to access options. For example, you can view more photos by tapping on the arrow.

#Software Setup

To install the camera software on your pc, you first have to download the extracted package from the blueberry beta website onto your machine. Then open the folder where the program is located and start the installation, the download file is in the enclosed installation folder.

Once the installation is done, navigate to the Blueberry Beta menu using the keyboard shortcut Alt-G. Now press “Enter” and the installation will complete automatically.

blueberrygo is a command line tool for capturing camera images. To start the software, go to your command line and type:

blueberrygo -now

When you hit ENTER a live editor will appear, where you can enter mathematical expressions for optical corrections. There are even going to be equations for the special relativity.

$$ x = \int_{0^1}^1(-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac})/(2a) $$

The highly complex nature of what is involved in the capture process requires that the data have to be stripped of its vibrations, perturbations and noise before it can be retrieved. In other words, in order to get a clean enough signal for the image, the ‘black boxes’ that contain the sensors are carefully inspected on the way back.
