Range Focus limiter on the 100mm Macro F2.8

On an ILCA - 77M 2, just how to deal with this switch

Of the operating instructions of the Macro Sony SAL100M28 100 mm f/2.8 lens:

"To focus on subjects at close range..., update fixed anywhere near the object, and then set focus-range up to LIMITlimiter; the focus range is limited to the range of big point. Similarly, when shooting subjects at an extreme range, set thefocus anywhere near the object and then set the limiter of development-range up to LIMIT; the focal range is limited to the range Far-getting to the point. Set the limiter of development-range FULL to allow the range of focus. »

The SAL100M28 is a macro lens, and as such, it has a long beach of possible focus distances. In addition, in order to get the sharpest image possible, it adjusts the focus more slowly than a conventional lens. This means that should naturally be for some time to focus on a subject. The focus range limiter gives you the ability to limit the movement of the lens at half of its normal range, which speeds up the process.

Do not use it at all ever, but it can help to to focus on your topic before it moves.

  • HP Z600: What processors am I limited with the hpz600 workstation?

    Hi, I have a HP Z600 that I bought refurbished. The vehicle currently has 2 x Xeon X 5560 2.8 cpus.

    I am struck with this configuration cpu load limit (I run the intensive 3d modeling software), and I want to improve.

    Am I limited with the motherboard on these workstations?

    Which processors that you would recommend? (I looking for a quite intensive help and have a few hundred dollars to spend).

    Thank you!

    anti1, older versions of the Z600 support microprocessors Intel 55xx only, later versions support as 55xx 56xx CPUs.  The best way to determine this is to boot the system, enter the BIOS F10 setup and look at the date of starting block.

    If the boot block date is 03/01/2009, the system supports the 55xx only processors.

    If the block start date is 07/01/2010, the system supports processors 55xx both 56xx.

    -C' is the block of start date, not the date of the version of the BIOS.

    -There is no way to update the boot block.  (There are several discussions in this forum about this)

    If your system has the block to start later, upgrade to a 6 core CPU 56xx will give best performance.  I think that the frequency of the processor 6 c is 3.47 GHz, although there is a 4 processor 3.6 GHz.  Your application supports multiple cores?

    To get an idea of any increase in performance, look at the reference site of CPU of the pass mark for the top processors of range, here.

    Based on these landmarks (I know, they are markers without real object numbers), you could get about 70% performance increase by using a X 5690 6 3.47 GHz CPU core.  Is it enough for your application?

  • Audio on the socket for headphones has a dynamic range very little. The music is piled up.

    Speakers of the laptop to listen to music very well. When I use the headphone music in my headphones has a dynamic range very little. The sounds of music crushed. The strong parties are limited and the soft parts are high until I can hear background noise in the recording. I've never had this problem on any other PC.

    I'm listening on iTunes, Soundforge, and any other audio program.

    I downloaded an updated version of the software for the sound card - that solved the problem.

  • Can I put a audio plug-in (as a limiter) on the master output?

    I did a short film with lots of audio tracks. The sum of them are with a peak at certain times, and I want to be able to reduce the dynamic range by applying a compressor or reducing the summits with a limiter on the main bus. How do I do that?

    In the track mixer, there is a triangle at the top left, if you click on that it opens the effects rack. On the master channel, click in one of the positions the effects, this should then give you the option to add the dynamics, eq, etc.. Once the effect is added, double-click it to open the setting Panel.

  • When I close a tab, the focus goes on the right. How can I turn left at the place?

    When I encounter a link on a web page, I usually open it in a new tab. This tab appears to the right of the current tab. I then select the new tab to see the link. When I finished and close this new tab, the focus goes to the tab to the right if we're here (usually the case for me), but I would have preferred the focus to return to the tab to the left, where I came from, and are therefore automatically. How can I change the direction of focus when I close a tab to remove the click of the mouse to select the previous tab?

    You will have to start without the help of the data backup, configure the phone to factory settings and start over. Follow the steps mentioned in this article:

  • Limits of the skeleton L


    I'm stumbling on the limits of the function of the skeleton, and IMHO, they are about size.

    Suppose I'm workign with a large image... 2048 * something.
    What I get from the skeleton L-function is

    (I know, skeleton lines are barely visible. What matters is the "block in the Middle"... aka skeleton function overflows)

    It's the same operation to the size of the image 600 * 355px (which isn't important in my humble OPINION)

    Only with a frame size of 230 x 160 or more, I'm getting a "real results".

    I'm not really happy with this behavior and lose a LOT of details here.

    I have two suspicions:
    one) somewhere, the data is stored in a U8...
    (b) IMAQ skeleton is probably derived from the thinning skeletonized, which in turn is probably based on the morphology of the IMAQ. IMAQ morphology begins to be unreliable after a 100 iterations of magic...

    Did someone of NO can give more information? I'll probably have to re - implement the whole thing... but I would like to at least know where / IF I can trust this algorithm to a certain particle size.

    Thank you

    Just for anyone who actually search for the topic: I finished my own algorithm of skeleton. It works, there is no size limitation (beyond distances U16 ) and 84 x (upon my request) is as fast as the NOR one.


  • menu bar popup not working if the focus is on the control of the chain

    Dear all,

    I wonder if this is the behavior expected or if I'm doing something wrong:

    On a Panel, I have a control of the chain; on double click, I opened a file selection box to select a file, then the file name on this control of the chain. After this action, this string is the active control, indicated by the gray frame.

    I also have a menu with some defined keyboard shortcuts bar for example F2. It seems that F2 is not functional, long as the focus is on the control of the chain. It's embarrassing because the typical user action is selects a file and then pressing on Fx. To resolve this problem, the user should click somewhere on the Panel to move the focus to another control. Of course this could be done programmatically, but the extra effort is not to say necessary for controls ring or digital controls. Also in digital controls, I can change the numbers, but even if a digital control is the active control due to the edition of the F2 value works immediately.

    Help is appreciated.

    Thank you


    I think what is happening here is that left double click is also used to highlight the text. So when you trigger the EVENT_LEFT_DOUBLE_CLICK, you're placing the text in the control of the chain and then also accentuating. It seems to be behaving strangely when the two of them occurs at the same time because of the order of the events. You can see that the mouse around when, returning from the file select popup causes the region highlighting to drag over the text. In this highlight mode, you cannot use the shortcuts for the menu. I was able to solve this problem by swallowing the EVENT_LEFT_DOUBLE_CLICK after you set the value of the control.

  • Engine step doesn't fail before reaching its physical limits for the sinusoidal movement


    My ultimate goal is to skip a XY (via 2 linear actuators) in a circular motion (radius of 0.47 ") at a frequency of 1 Hz. I run the example VI 'Demo circle' which received my copy of LabView, version 9.0.

    The problem I encounter is that given the physical limitations of the engine and the drive motor, the task should technically be feasible (see calculation *). However, even when the engines are completely discharged (no not attached to anything whatsoever), they start missing steps away from my final goal. I'm only able to reach a radius of 0.2 "(vitesse de pointe de 1.25" / seconde). "

    My question; Is the system set up incorrectly or is my final goal unrealistic, given performance reductions inevitable due to software/hardware?

    I apologize for the naivety of this question, but if there is any information that you may provide which might shed some light on this problem, I would be very happy.

    Possible theories:

    Torque is decreased more at high speeds because of microstep

    A closed loop system would improve performance at high speed

    The VI 'Demo circle' is not the best method to create a circle

    The acceleration is the limiting factor, not speed

    * RADIUS = 0.47 "

    Maximum speed = (RADIUS * 2 * pi) * cos(2 * pi)

    Maximum speed = 2.9 "/ second"


    LabView v9.0


    open loop configuration


    1 4 a per axis

    10 micro steps

    Linear actuator (form is attached)

    NEMA 17 ordered by motor (sold by ultra-motion).

    Maximum speed of 3.3 inches per second

    1. 2A voltage coil

    1.8º step angle

    Kind regards



    I really wonder the max speed in the datasheet.  0,0833 "/ to 3.3" rev / s = about 40RPS (2400 RPM), which is extremely fast for a motor, especially at 24VDC.  Know exactly what engine is on the cylinder and go to www.applied-motion.com and you should be able to find curves of torque for that or a similar engine with various readers.  You will see that couple to 24VDC curves are not good.  In addition, ask Ultramotion if their speed/strength curve is theoretical, or tests have been conducted.

  • The limitation on the W520 with BIOS update?

    Hey everybody,

    My decision was very long, and whenever I get the motivation to upgrade to a W520, I always get worried about the forums. My main concern the limitation on the battery and the blocked processor clock. Since the last update of the BIOS, is it resolved? I can handle a small limitation on battery but 800 MHz is all just ridiculous. Before that I have finally let go of my money, buy the W520 in confidence that there is always these problems? I'll have to use this machine for at least 5 years, and if I have to start with these problems, I won't be a happy camper.

    Thank you.

    Hey, J,

    I think you get a view polarized the W520 on this forum. It is a solid and reliable machine. The limitation of problems have been resolved there are some revisions of the BIOS.

    Yes, it is not perfect in every way. However, it is a boon to the developer of this software. Yes, I use it to do the real work.

    Now that I've sung his praises, I'll do a 180 in saying that I would wait for the "W530" at this late stage of the game. This is probably only a few months at sea and can represent a significant improvement.

    BTW: If you want to get one, you will get a better deal by the way for one of the pre-built reseller like Amazon or Buy.com. It is much cheaper to do it and then upgrade only to have Lenovo customize it for you.

    For example, I went this route:

    Amazon W520

    I saw this as low as $1360 model. You can throw in a load of RAM for not much money.

    I wanted to talk, Buy.com stocks often this machine, and they have a 45 day return policy.

    There is my 2 cents.


  • Move focus horizontally in the date field

    Hello world

    Date field the focus moves by the movement of the trackball vertical by default. I'm doing it in horizontal also using STATUS_MOVE_FOCUS_HORIZONTALLY during initialization datefield. It does not work.

    I tried to datefield navigationMovement substitution, which helps not or can I not move horizontally within this function.

    It works if I substitute navigationMovement of screen, but I can't find a way to move the focus in the field date when this happens.

    Any help or suggestion on this would be greatly appreciated.

    You will not be able to do. The DateField has a method getSubField, but not setSubField, it is managed internally.
    If you really need, I suggest you re - implement it with the functionality you need, should not be too difficult, however need some coach.

  • verification code 422 - what are the limits of the JVM?


    I'm porting an application for BlackBerry 8900 using his emulator via the eclipse plugin. The application is large enough, it contains a lot of classes, some of them use a lot of static fields (mainly in the form: public final static String xxx = "yyy") and some here and there of the static methods.

    I ran into issues when I tried to run the application: 422 to xxxxx offset verification code.

    I found a few posts on the forum about this problem, but I have seen no clear solution. Someone has suggested that the source of the problem is the static methods/fields and proposed to refactor our source code to avoid using static fields. I followed technical debugging what he suggested, but it does not solve my problem. The error logged in the file '8900.bug' has changed of pointing on my course to point to the SDK classes ('Module 'net_rim_cldc_impl_softtoken' has verification errors"and"Module "net_rim_rimsecuridlib" contains errors of audit").

    I think that these errors are due to the limitations of black Berry JVM.

    I did a test program memory to display the amoungt of free memory (using "Runtime.getRuntime () .freeMemory ()" "") and it seems that it is not the limiting factor.

    (1) is anyone knows what is the verification code 422 and why this occurred on the modules of the SDK?

    (2) I tried to find the limits of the JAVA virtual machine specification somewhere in the documentation, but I can't find them anywhere. They emerge?

    (3) the BlackBerry 8900 JVM have a limitation on the number of fields/static methods that it can process?

    Right now, I'm stuck, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I found that my midlet was causing a NullPointerException in the thread who load the classes and run their static initalizer. The JVM is hung not because of the static function, but the first load of the class that contains the static function.

  • Entry text box loses focus after setting the innerHTML

    I'm trying to change my widget so that it supports the search when you type.

    But when my javascript event fires to submit ajax request entry box retains loses focus.  I tried to reset the focus after writing the html code with blackberry.focus.setFocus (), but this function sets the cursor at the beginning of the entry rather than at the end zone, so I can continue typing.

    Is it possible to update the html code in a DIV without losing the focus on my entry box, or there at - it a way to make the blackberry.focus.setFocus () to go to the end of the string currently in the box?

    Here is an example of the code that I am trying to work in my 9700 Simulator:
