1080p Webcam Amazon for use with OBS. MOSONTH sent me their 1080P Web Camera with Light to to see how it works within my OBS workflow. I installed this 1080P HD WebCam into OBS and compared it to my Logitech C9 10 and my Samsung galaxy note 4. I show you side-by-side comparison of webcam picture quality and we also listen to the microphones. Here is a link to the camera on Amazon.

The camera will work well with Zoom, Skype, and basically any other streaming servers you use. #Webcam #Camera #amazonwebcam #webcamreview

MOSONTH did not pay for this review, though they did send me the camera for free.

[00:00:00.060]

Hi, everyone, welcome to Scott Parker’s Tech Tips. I’m going to review this FHD webcam that they sent me. It’s a 1080P webcam here we have the camera, a little tripod, they included, and a spec sheet. The camera itself has a swivel on the top and the little clamp on the bottom, just like my Logitech C910 that I’ll be showing you clamps on at the top of my monitor and even has this handy tripod mount, which is good.

[00:00:28.350]

Here’s the C910 I’m showing you here. And it has the same kind of mounting, but this new camera swivels, which the C910 doesn’t. So I’ve hooked the camera up. So now I’ll add a camera. So go to video capture device, do the C910. Let’s add the next camera. Now we’ll add this new camera. Device FHD. And there it is, FHD webcam. Oh, it’s very bright. And you can see my green screen and my office.

[00:01:04.090]

There you go. Move this over here, and do some cropping. So it matches the other one. Put them side by side. Trying to get the same size. There we go. As you see, it’s much brighter, I kind of like that I’ll be able to turn these lights down a little bit because the C910 doesn’t have a sensitive camera. So here we go. It’s much brighter that’s pretty nice. Let’s add the Galaxy Note four and that is the IV cam software.

[00:01:32.130]

OK, so the new camera is a little washed out. The Galaxy Note has the best color rendering. The C910 is the most sort of bland. It’s also a little washed out. But this new one is a little washed out. Let’s see if we can fix that. Filter Chroma-key. Just do the default setting there. That’s pretty good. Now choose this one, filter, Chroma-key. And this one we need to do a few little tweaks to the color.

[00:02:02.830]

OK, so this middle one is still very bright, but it looks much better now that the background isn’t there. So I’d say that I’m very impressed with the quality we see here. Let’s make it bigger. Take a much closer look. Detail is good. Lets add a background, I’ll just pick this black and white picture image of my desk. And we’ll put this in the back. So now it certainly looks much better. With the Chroma-key, we can make a few adjustments.

[00:02:31.270]

And with a whiter background it looks better. The quality was quite good because even if I compare it to the note four which is here, the lines in my glasses are sharper, my mustache is certainly sharper. The most interesting thing about it, I find, is that it’s so much wider than the C910. For the price, it can’t be beat. We’re going to change up a little bit and look at the settings for the camera. So here’s the Logitech.

[00:03:09.810]

I’m going to go into the settings, properties, configure video, and I have the Logitech webcam properties driver running in my Windows machine. Mac has a different kind of driver. And this one, as you see, as I have it set to zoom in a little bit. So let us zoom all the way out and expose the rest of my office. And I have some other choices that I can choose here in this driver, but I’m going to leave all those alone.

[00:03:40.080]

I’m going to click on save, so you see how big the area is, and here’s the green screen that’s set to gray. So it’s green screened out and click, OK. And as you can see, you can see more of my office area. There’s the hallway and such like that. So here is this one. Let’s do the properties of this camera. Take a look. And we have configure this one doesn’t have a zoom adjustment in the camera driver.

[00:04:12.240]

Now, I didn’t install a camera driver for this. This camera driver just showed up when I plugged the camera in. So I don’t think it’s their camera driver. I think it’s the standard Windows one. And I have a few adjustments that I can make, but I’m going to leave these alone, and basically, this one here, this is how much you see of the room. So let’s open up, or uncrop, my picture, all the way out.

[00:04:46.930]

So with this, we have to start off in the four, we don’t need that one. You have to be tougher now because we’re here. Let’s see if I have this cropped at all. So that is as wide as it goes, the C910, as you can see here, has significant, is much more focused and the FHD is much wider. Let’s turn off the background so you see how you can see the doorknob, this door knob over here and there, that door knob here.

[00:05:22.750]

But you can also see in the FHD camera, you can see the window sill and the picture on the wall and on this side, the side, it’s almost similar. The FHD one is much wider, it gets a lot more over there. So it depends on what you’re looking for. Let’s make my head the same size. There we go. Oh, there’s a good demonstration. So that’s about the same. So you got a lot more.

[00:05:58.550]

Make them. Green screen the same size. There we go, so the green screen is the same width here, so you see how much wider the camera is and it depends on what you like and what you want. Now, with this other camera. With this FHD camera. Might be able to have this closer. So there it is closer. Makes me a little bigger and there are some videos online where they say it’s better to have your camera closer to you, but this is my screen is further away.

[00:06:26.280]

So there would be nothing to put this on except for the fact that it has this handy dandy mount here. And I could take the tripod mount that I use to hold my note four and replace it. And I could place it closer. But then it’s still between me and my screen. So overall, I think it’s decent camera. It could certainly work well with a tripod to point down to do work with my overhead picture. If you click on this link right up here, it’ll take you to my how to use OBS and how my setup is.

[00:06:51.990]

And you’ll see how I have the GoPro knockoff camera mounted on a tripod pointing straight down. And this camera would be a terrific replacement for that as well. So if you don’t have a GoPro type camera, this will work great as a document camera. It works terrific as a close up, as a front camera and such. And now for the microphone. So I’m going to go down here and change my microphone. I’m going to turn off the EV in OBS.

[00:07:17.480]

And I’m going to turn on the microphone, you notice you still hear me, that’s because this is a recording from my screen recording software not from OBS. So going to properties. I’m going to use the custom audio device and the camera just blinked a couple of times, so there’s a whole lot of noise here and it’s rather sensitive. The microphone is very hot. We turn on our microphone from the EV. We have a lot smoother line.

[00:07:45.930]

It’s a better microphone, obviously. So I’m a big fan of using an external microphone like this one here or like a yeti. My other microphone is a yeti, anything that can be closer to you so it doesn’t pick up any outside noise. And it’s particularly quiet in my office today. Turning on the other microphone here, the big difference here is that the camera mic seems to be running in stereo. So there’s the sound difference. Turning this one off.

[00:08:13.480]

And we have our microphone here. Turning this one back on. We’ve got that one here. Let’s see if we can turn on the one that’s in the 910. I never use that microphone.

[00:08:26.090]

OK, so this is the 910. It’s got a lot less noise.

[00:08:30.680]

Here’s the FHD. And here is my electro voice, so that’s that’s a microphone test for more information about it, there’s a link down in the description below. Better quality than my now 10 year old Logitech C910, but it’s much wider and not as zoomed in. What’s your camera? What do you use? Do you like a close up view? Do you like the further away view or the wide angle view? Leave a comment in the comments below and maybe we’ll explore more cameras here on Scott Parker’s Tech Tips.

Here we have a standard twenty five foot tape measure. At the end of the tape measure, we have a little hook. As we extend the tape out of the tape measure, we see that we have standard numbers starting at the end would be zero and we have one inch, two inches, three inches and so on when we extend out up to a foot, 12 inches. We see that we have a second set of numbers show up. We have 12 inches, which is also a foot, and we have 13 inches.

[00:00:43.680]

And then we also have a one inch. So 12 inches, 13 inches or one foot, one inch, that continues on to be one foot, two inches or 14 inches. Depends on what nomenclature you’re going to be using, feet and inches or just inches. The entire tape measure continues, as we’ll see when we get to two feet. We have two feet or twenty four inches two feet, one inch and so on. So we can find these measurements quickly.

[00:01:23.190]

Now, what I like to do is let’s cover what’s in between these full inch marks to make it easy. I’m going to go up to 20 inches so that we’re dealing with a zero and a one inch. So zero inches and one inch in between the zero and the one. We have several divisions. The largest of them is to divide it in half between zero and 1″. We have two halves. So it’d be 1/2″ and then a whole.

[00:01:56.580]

And it’s divided into two segments. And we’re getting into fractions here, which is a whole another area that we’re going to explore. Tape measures are a wonderful tool to learn fractions. So from zero 1/2″ to one, we’re dividing into two, which ends up being 1 slash 2. Half an inch. If we divided into fourths or four divisions, let’s say we divide this in half, so this is two divisions. This is our quarter line right there.

[00:02:41.590]

We have half and half of that, again, is a quarter. We’re going to add one quarter of an inch. And there are four quarters to the whole, just like there are four quarters to a dollar, we have zero 1/2″ full we have zero one quarter, two quarters, three quarters. And the whole is there, four quarters here is one quarter is another quarter and another quarter. And now that we have our one quarter from zero to one quarter, if we cut this in half, this is an eighth line.

[00:03:25.840]

This is one eighth. There are eight segments this size within our inch, one eighth, two eighths, which is also quarter three eighths four eighths which is a 1/2″ five eighths, six eighths, which is three quarters, seven eighths and then eight eighths. Since the 1″ inch divided into eight sections, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Getting to the smallest mark on our inch is a sixteenth. Between the eighth and zero is one sixteenth and there are sixteen separate lines.

[00:04:12.310]

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen. So each one of these lines, each one of these spaces is a sixteenth of an inch, at the shortest line. You’ll notice that the largest line is half an inch then a quarter then an eights, then a sixteenth. You might be asking why we don’t do this at the zero at the very end of the tape measure,

[00:04:55.280]

We can run into some inaccuracies, as you can see, this one has a little bit of wear and tear, and when you’re using a tape measure at the very end, we have our one inch then go backwards to half an inch and we have a zero. But looking at this device here, you’ll see that it moves and it could be considered loose. It’s actually designed to do this. The reason why it’s designed to do that is that when you’re measuring an object that you push the tape measure up against, we want this to extend in.

[00:05:35.720]

When you’re measuring an object that you’d like to hook off the end, let’s say the length of a piece of wood you go over and you’ll see that the end moves. So we’re pushing in the end moves in, and if you’re pulling on the end of a piece of wood, it pulls out. The reason why you want this to happen is to account for the thickness of this piece of metal itself. If you think about it, if it didn’t move, then if we measure it on the inside, it might be accurate.

[00:06:10.220]

But if we then measure on the outside and we’re not to move, it would not be accurate because of this thickness of this piece of metal. So we actually want this to move ever so slightly.

[00:00:00.750]

Here we have a standard inch ruler. It’s a 12 inch ruler. And we’re going to look on how it works. Here we have zero the zero market, a one in tomate and a two inch mark, three, four, five, six and so on, the two line and the three line and a four line and one line, the whole numbers are the longest rule or lines. Here is lines. The next length divide these two directly in 1/2″.

[00:00:37.440]

So this is referred to as the 1/2″ mark. So if we have a whole line here. And here. And this is going to be the 1″ 1/2″ mark. Halfway, it doesn’t matter where they are, they could be between these guys and this line here is still going to be the halfway line. So we’ve got on this case two and a half inches, three inches, three and a half inches. Four inches. And one inch and zero, obviously, between the hole number and the 1/2″ number, if we divide that in half again, let’s say we take 1″ 1/2″ and we divide that in half, divided by two equals one quarter.

[00:01:33.100]

There are two quarters and a half, just like there are two quarters and half a dollar. So. In between here, this is a quarter line and you’ll see that these are a little bit shorter than the half inch line, so we’ve got one quarter and then two quarters because 1/2″ is two quarters.

[00:01:56.420]

Here’s three quarters and the hole would be four quarters. So here we have one quarter. Here we have two quarters. Here we have three quarters. And then here we have four quarters. Which, of course, makes a whole let’s move over here a little closer and look at the lines between the four and the five, so there’s a whole numbers.

[00:02:30.600]

We already know we have a 1/2″ there and we’ve got two quarters here. In between those, we’ve got these even smaller lines, so here’s the 1/2″ is the longest quarter and this one year between the the quarter, that’s an eighth because there are eight parts in between here, just like in the quarters. We had one, two, three, four quarters. Here we have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.

[00:02:59.690]

Eight eighths. So this one here is one eight. And then we have a quarter, which could also be two AIDS. Than we have here. Three eighths. And when my handwriting gets sloppy. Here we have four days for the 1/2″, so for. Athos. Here we have five eighths. And six eighths. Which is also. Three quarters. And then here we have seven eighths. And then, of course, down here, we have the.

[00:03:56.400]

Eight over eight, which, of course, equals one. So now we’re going to get even more detail. Let’s talk between the six and the seven. So we have the AIDS. In between, those are the sixteenths, because there are 16 of the tiniest lines here between the six and the seven. So we have 1″ 16. To then we have three, we read like this three over 1″ six. Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, here’s nine sixteenths.

[00:04:40.640]

I’m skipping them because they’re so small to write, but that’s nine sixteenths right there, which is just over the eight sixteenths. Which is just over to. Fourth’s. I skipped the AIDS. Forehead’s. For it’s. And 1″ 1/2″, I got confused there, I’ll catch up, so there’s nine, 16, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16. And so forth, until we get to, let’s say, 13, 14, 15, 16, 16.

[00:05:24.810]

So all these numbers mean the same thing when you get to the eight, 16 to two over four two quarters for AIDS or 1″ 1/2″, those all mean the same things. But when you get in between them, when they’re an odd number, you have to use the whole thing. So when they’re odd numbers, you can’t reduce them. Whether even numbers you can. Now, let’s look at this other end of the scale, so here we are dealing with the 30 seconds.

[00:05:52.510]

There are 32 little spaces between the zero and the one inch here. We have zero here, so they’re the beginning. Got the one inch over here. And of course, we have our half inch and we’ve got a quarter and a half an hour sixteenths, so these tiny little guys here are 30 seconds. So this is a 1″, 30 second 1″. Thirty two, and in here, the half inch 1″ would be eight, would be 16, 30 seconds.

[00:06:31.370]

Thirty seconds. So if we want to measure let’s say we want to measure, let’s measure a line that is one inch and five, 30 seconds. Well, since there’s no 30 seconds over here, we’re not closer from zero to one. And then 30 seconds, we have to estimate we’re going to start from the two and go backwards. So from two to one, that’s one inch. So start here. And when I say five, 30 seconds, one, two, three, four, five, 30 seconds.

[00:07:04.140]

So we want to go there. And draw a line. That is one inch plus the five, 30 seconds, if you want to add another five, 30 seconds, we can count one, two, three, four, five, which goes to right here. Which is 10, 30 seconds. So 10, 30 seconds if we divide 10. Thirty seconds and 1/2″, we’d end up with five. Sixteen’s. So if we look at this, we have one, two, three, four, five sixteenths, so that works out the same.

[00:07:50.880]

So that’s how you use the 30 second marks within the front inch. Now, there are some laws that if you’re working with a ruler that has all of them because you’re doing a lot of precise work, you might have that. But this ruler here is a relatively generic ruler. So it’s only the first inch and that’s how you need to deal with it. So please like and subscribe and leave a comment down below. It helps us a lot in our outreach and let us know what else you’d like to learn.

[00:08:19.350]

Hi there, welcome to my tutorial on using my ruler worksheet. Here we have a full sized worksheet. It’s got various lines on it with one example shown there. We’re going to do some close up work. I have here a standard imperial inch measurement ruler it’s 12 inches long as you’ll see I’ve got the whole ruler right here and I’m used on my piece paper. This worksheet is available on my website. There’s a link in the description and there should be one popping up on your window.

[00:00:31.500]

Now, here we go. So using a ruler, we have all these measurements starting from, well, zero. And then we’ve got one inch and two inch and three inch and so on. And in the middle we have a lot of small lines that we’re about to deal with. So this measurement here is five and a half inches long, according to the key that I’ve left here. But if we look at the measurement itself, we start from zero and we go out to five.

[00:01:01.980]

So here we have between the five and the six. We have the longest line here, which represents five and a half inches. So the inches are broken up into inches. And then we have a half inch there and a half inch here and a half inch over there. We also have quarter lines.

[00:01:20.010]

There are four quarters to an inch. So we have one quarter, two quarters, three quarters and four quarters. We also have eighths. So we have four and 1/8th. If there would be two eighths, there’s three four eight five eight six eights, seven eighths and eight eighths. So there are the all are in between those. The tiniest line are sixteenths. So we have four and one sixteenth or four and two sixteenth, which is also one eighth, three sixteenth four 16th, which is also quarter five six three eighths, seven eight sixteenths which is a 1/2″ nine ten eleven twelve which is three quarters, 13, 14, 15, 16 sixteenths, which is the full inch.

[00:02:14.940]

So we’ve got from zero to five and then a half inch. So that’s why it’s as five and a half inches. Let’s take this measure, the next line that doesn’t have a measurement written on it. So we go from zero one two three. And ends up in this line here, which is the quarter marks the 1/2″ inches the longest between the inches, that quarter marks the second longest. So that’s how I can quickly tell that it’s a quarter mark and it’s on one quarter, two quarters, which is also half an inch, three quarters.

[00:02:53.590]

So we would write that down over here, three, and three-Quarters of an inch. And for good measure, I like drawing lines that show me how long the line is from my drafting days, so I would measure like that and like that. Now, whether you’re going to do this on your worksheets, it depends on how detailed you’re going to get and the purpose that you’re making your worksheets happen for yourself. And let’s pick another one. Let’s put this one down here.

[00:03:29.600]

So this one, we start at 1″ or zero one inch, two inch, two and a quarter, two and a half. And then we’ve got two small lines is just sixteenths or one slightly longer one. That’s an eighth. So two and a two and a half plus an eighth. Well, we know we have four eighths in a 1/2″, so this must be five eighths. So this is two inches. Or two and five eighths inches. here we go.

[00:04:06.030]

Measuring a box. So now this box here. We’ve got one inch a quarter. Three eighths. So this would be seven 16th, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, sixteenths, but if you can see, it’s ever so slightly longer than seven sixteenths mark. So they here we have 32nds. They’re tiny. So to measure this and you do is going to move this over. To the two inch mark.

[00:04:42.890]

They’re little backwards, watch this, from two to one, it’s 1″, and then we have these tiny lines here. So we have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 30 sixteenths. So that’s one and 15/32nds. Right here. So it’s 1″ in 15/32 inches. And that’s what these tiniest, tiniest lines here, and this is a pretty detailed ruler. My next video, I’m going to work on the other side and work with these millimeters on the next worksheet that’s in millimeters.

[00:05:42.150]

So if you like this video, please, like and subscribe. And we’ll see you again soon. Thanks.
