Kaylor Motor Adaptor Electric Car Kit. This is installed in a 69 VW Ghia.
We are testing a modern controller to power the old Starter/Generator
motors for these Kits. These conversion kits were specifically built for
the old VW platform. They work great but work best on the old fiberglass
Sony A7R HyperDeck Shuttle 2
Sony A7R is the camera being used in this video. HyperDeck Shuttle 2 is the
device recording the HDMI output of the camera. Lens used is an old Super
Takumar 55mm 1.8 lens. Its a fully manual M42 screw mount lens. Camera is
set at 800iso and lens set at f-5.8. The Sony camera will put out clean
HDMI in interlace mode for recording to the Shutte. It also includes audio.
Audio is OK but only used to sync external audio recording in post
production. Hyperdeck is recording in Apple ProRes 422HQ. It can be set for
uncompressed Quicktime which produces huge files RAW files. ProRes is fine
with me. Camera is set for neutral setting so there is no custom settings
or sharpening. This video is straight from the Hyperdeck with no post
processing and the quality of the recording is pretty much exactly what the
room looks like. So the camera is putting out good quality video. I do have
the white balance set for indoor lighting. This is one thing that does get
passed with the HDMI signal.
I believe at one point I mentioned armature instead of aperture. Oooops. I
also mentioned that the OLED was 2 thousand mega pixel but it is 2.4M. The
view finder OLED is just awesome.
The Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 has a few issues. One is a low capacity battery.
It really needs to be better. But if you can plug it in somewhere it is no
longer an issue. Also they told me it will pickup progressive mode but I
can't get it to recognize any video signal unless the HDMI is set to
interlace mode. But as you can see I am not picking up any interlace lines.
I am using a 480G SSD in the Hyperdeck. Gives lots of recording space but
it does get a bit warm. I hope it does not become an issue. Also the
Hyperdeck will not accept just any SSD drive. There is a list of specific
drives but that comes because it is usually used with equipment that can
record large files and it needs to be able to record fast without any
video/audio loss. I am using an Extreme SanDisk SSD 480G drive.
Audio. iPhone 5. You should be able to use any of the iPhones or Pads for
this. I took an old set of ear buds which include a microphone. The earlier
ear buds stink. I clipped them off but left the microphone. We have a bunch
of micro cloths pins for hanging cards at Christmas time on long ribbons on
the wall. They work great by the way. Looks good too. I took one and found
it fits perfect on the back side of the mic and hot glued it into place
making whats left of the ear buds a portable lavaliere microphone that
works perfect with the iPhone in your pocket. I have a program called Voice
Record Pro (Free or $2.99 if you don't want advertisements) that produces a
great sounding audio signal and works with the little mic. Get it on
iTunes. I like it better than the camera audio. The Sony camera audio is
much better than the Canon T3i but still not as good as this little Apple
microphone. You will notice in this video that the mic is connected to the
undershirt and the back side is rubbing against the hair on the chest.
Watch out, the mic will pick up that sound. You need to attach it to the
outer shirt or have a way to isolate it from touching the hair or any other
item of clothing so it won't make an awful sound. That goes for any
lavaliere microphone, not just this one. But if you want to save a great
deal of cash and want great sounding audio that does not sound like a tin
can then this will work quite well.
Canon T3i Hyperdeck Shuttle 2b
Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 and Canon T3i. I found I am showing some pretty serious
interlacing issues with the Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 when I record from my Canon
T3i. I have no way to record in different frames per second with the
Hyperdeck Shuttle 2. I am also recording with Apple ProRes 422HQ. My
monitor will not show video if my Hyperdeck is set on uncompressed 10bit
video. I am going to do another test tomorrow with the Canon filming from
the Canon in standard FPS and another in 24FPS.
Electric Ghia Update. Windshield installed and new rims purchased for the
project. Not new but nice aluminum rims.
Extened Range Trailer Project
Extended Range Trailer Project is underway. It should be a simple affair
but I am sure some will have ideas to make it as complex as possible. There
will be some issues to resolve but they should be workable.

FCI Electrifying Day
October 21st 2011 will definitely remain as an electrifying day in FCI
Epernon's manufacturing site life. On this very sunny day, Epernon became
for a few hours a dedicated arena to demonstrate latest EV (Electric
More than 800 people were invited to witness the performance of the
Formulec car - embedding FCI Power.S3 connectors - on a road which has
been blocked, to allow the 4 runs of the full electric single seater.
A charge station using FCI charge plugs was unveiled with two electric
vehicles (Renault Fluence & Peugeot Ion) to demonstrate our
industrialization capabilities, giving from now on, the chance to our
customers to come to Epernon with EV cars.
