Alternatives to Hayear camera recording software


Recommended Posts

I am a Mac user, and I know I can use Parallels to run the software that Hayear has, but has anyone found a better piece of software (mac or Windows is fine)?  I could just record with Quicktime, but also looking for a way to take just pictures using the connection with the Mac.

I'm not entirely clear on what it is you are wanting to do. Are you wanting to record video from your microscope camera? If so, you will get better quality video recording to the internal SD card vs. connecting  the camera to a computer via USB and recording video from  the computer. I record all of my videos/photos on the internal sd card and  then just pop that card into my computer to transfer the files.

Well, the issue I'm having is how do I know when the thing is recording vs not recording.  Plus, I can't see the image to ensure it is in focus and all that.  If I am running to my computer, I can store it to the HDD and can see what is recording.  I've changed the battery in the remote and it still does not seem to do anything.  When I press the buttons on the top of the unit, it also does not seem like it does anything (other than holding down the one for power which will turn it off).

I'm not familiar with the Hayear brand of camera. I have an Eakins that you can start recording by either using the remote or pressing a button on the camera. There is also a light that starts blinking red on top of the camera when it is recording. I have a monitor on my bench attached via HDMI to the camera so I can see the framing and check focus.

    • These are the places where I oiled with HP 1300...  These are the places where I oiled with HP 1300...  I can see that the cannon pinion is moving as it should once I installed the pallet fork. I created a small video but was not able to upload it. It is a mov file type. I need now to source a GR4014X mainspring, a stop ever #9433 and both calendar disc as the days/dates are peeling out... This is the mido watch which holds the ETA Movement.... I just want to thanks all of you guys for your help, specially @eccentric59 who nailed it! So, I would consider this case as closed unless of course any question from any of you... Best regards Fernando     I could not download the file... I will tray to located. Many thanks. 
    • Thanks a lot everyone!  I'll update you as soon as a final decision has been made by my friend (and depending on her decision, what I may find inside). 
    • Thanks Marc, clearly I have a lot to learn about metallurgy. I’d expect the cutting of tool or spring steel to be a lot harder to cut into a precise shape- I expect I’d have to anneal it first? 
    • Unfortunately if you have used mild steel you will have little hope of hardening and tempering it, it simply doesn't contain enough carbon. You need to use a steel with a higher carbon content like tool steel or spring steel. One good source for this is engineers feeler gauges which can be picked up relatively inexpensively and provide a range of thicknesses of material. this will then harden and temper in pretty much the way you have described.
    • Thanks for this excellent tutorial and very fine illustrations @Jon! Really first class! 👍 I noticed that your image was a bit too small to read with ease, so here's a larger copy of it. I summarized @nickelsilver's method for adjusting beat errors to the following, but you can find all the info in the thread I linked to: “For everyday work, from the smallest ladies’ movements to marine chronometer, I set the balance with the cock on a bench block so the roller table is in a hole, balance on the block. Lift up the cock and move it over- not flipping it, just moving laterally, until I can see the slot in the hairspring collet, get in there and adjust (for tiny watches this is usually with an oiler, larger, a small screwdriver). Go back in the watch and check on the machine. I hold a balance arm of the rim with tweezers while moving the collet.”
