 How to improve redmi note 11 pro 5G camera. Free and give you the best result. Redmi note 11 pro 5G is a decent phone, it has a 108 mp camera (Samsung hm2 sensor) but the Picture capture from the stock camera app is full of noise (see below picture) But you can improve camera quality by just installing Gcam mod from the internet and enjoy the high-quality pictures from redmi note 11 pro 5G. The G-cam mod is working for this phone without root access. You can see the picture comparison below. As you can see images above the APS-C sensor size(eos m100) camera has more noise but more details and better color but redmi note 11 pro 5G has a smaller sensor size so the Gcam algorithm is superb. However, the Gcam has its own limit, it can't capture fast-moving object because hdr+ capture several pictures and combine them into one final image. The picture may have low noise but it lost details when captured in a dark environment and it may be the redmi note11 5G not fully compatible with G

How to improve bookshelf loudspeaker sound

 My audience on my youtube channel asked me how to find a crossover network capacitance and inductance so I will make it here The speaker I made crossover network is a microlab b77. The speaker lacked the woofer's crossover network, no absorbent so I fixed it for cleaner sound and changed the tweeter's high pass filter to a better one. Step 1 Change the old capacitor to a metalized polypropylene capacitor (very clean sound). The capacitor value is 4 uf and the speaker is 8 ohms so the crossover frequency =1/6.28x8x4 = 0.004976 x 1,000,000 = 4976 Hz (x1,000,000 come from Farad to microfarad) If you want to find crossover frequency C= 0.1590/(R x F) x 1,000,000 for uf Step 2 Find induction for the woofer. L = .1592 x 4(woofer resistance)/4976(Hz) =1270 micro Henry x1000 = 0.127 mH but I has 0.1 mH so the crossover point may change a little but not much. If you want the complete sound you may find 0.127 mH Speaker crossover diagram. Step3 Add absorbent to the speaker cabinet. The

This page shows you how I install a hot shower at my condominium. However, you need to have basic knowledge about electronics and you will be fine. First step: You need to cut off the circuit breaker before doing this works. Second step: Find the right wire color and meaning of the color. As you can see in the above picture, the ground wire always green in color, and the hot wire is black. Unlike DC current load AC current use black color as a hot wire but DC current use black as a ground. Third step: Check resistance between neutral and ground, it should be 0 ohms or no more than 1 ohms. The resistance above 1 ohm means that the ground wire has a problem and elb, elcb may not work. Last step: Connect three wires to a hot shower and everything will be finished. See the video below for the complete project.

Helmet face sheild scratches repair.

This page shows you how to remove scratches from motocycle helmet face sheild. This method works well even the face sheild have so many scratches.

Normally, the helmet face shield made of plastic and a car polishing wax can remove scratches. However, the polishing wax dissolve some plastic and make it thinner so beware about it. See video below for the instruction and prove.

Simple Temperature Control Fan Speed circuit diagram

Image
Today I will show you how to make a very simple temperature control fan speed circuit. I use very minimal parts and works in real life. This circuit change 12 volts DC fan speed by temperature. The hotter the temp, the faster fan speed. The circuit principle is a voltage divider between T1 and 20 K potentiometer. When temperature increase, the Thermistor resistance decrease and make the voltage set point between T1 and R1 increase until it is higher than a Mosfet Vgs threshold and make a Mosfet change to ON state and conduct current to a fan. Below picture is the parts you need. Note: T1 is 10 K thermistor See the video below that shows how it work and full circuit diagram and the important of C1

Emergency fix camera tripod lever leg lock

This article shows you how to fix a broken camera tripod or monopod lever leg lock. The tripod or monopod quick lever leg lock has many shape and size so this article will help you fix it without paying a very high cost. A camera tripod is a tool that helps photographer shooting a shake-free picture when shutter speed lower than minimum requirement(1/focal length for full frame camera). A tripod has three legs and one leg for a monopod. When you set a camera position, you need to adjust a tripod/monopod leg to your design high and lock the position with the leg lock. You can't adjust a tripod leg if it damage and the leg lock spare part is hard to find so this problem is the main reason that makes me wrote this article for people that face the same problem like me. Everything you need for this DIY Hot glue or epoxy glue Horse clamp Plier See the instruction video below

Repair vertical blue line on lcd monitor

My AOC IPS LCD display had a dead vertical blue line and it was very annoying so I used the method in this video to fix the problem. I hope this method work for your LCD monitor too. What's cause the LCD display vertical line? The answer: The vertical line appears because of a low-quality LCD display or the LCD monitor panel exceed lifespan. This problem can't be fixed. However, the vertical line may appear because of connection wire is loose or glue degrade. This problem can be fixed by the method on the video below. Note: If you want a better result, you have to use hot air dryer blowing on the connecting wire that attaches on the control board. However, you should be very careful about too much heat from a hot air dryer, don't blow hot air too long or your LCD monitor will not working again.
