Why can’t my Nikon P900 zoom like the demo videos I’ve seen?

Your camera sports an imaging chip that measures 4.55mm height by 6.17mm length. The corner to corner (diagonal) measure of this chip is 7.66mm. This camera has a zoom lens with a variable focal length. The range of the focal length change is 4.3mm thru 357mm.

This camera sports a miniature sensor as compared to a 35mm film camera. The 35mm camera sovereign for about 100 years. Because of it’s popularity, it is customary to describe the view as seen by your camera, stacked up against the view as seen using a 35mm camera. This is an equivalency that may or may not be of benefit to you (gray hairs like this).

This equivalency is called a magnification factor or betters “crop factor”. The crop factor is derived by dividing the two camera’s diagonal measure. For your camera, this value is 5.6. Thus your lens 4.3mm thru 357 delivers the equivalent of a 35mm film camera with a zoom lens focal length range 24 thru 2000mm, this is a formidable zoom range.

We size lens to cameras based on the diagonal of the imaging chip. In this case, your camera has a diagonal measure of 7.66mm. If your camera is set to zoom focal length of 7.66, equivalent to about 43mm, the view delivered will be about the same as the unaided human eye.

If you zoom to a longer focal length, you will be in the telephoto realm. If you set the lens to a shorter than 4.3mm (equivalent to 25mm) or shorter, your camera is operating in wide-angle territory.

Suppose you zoom to 45mm (equivalent to 250mm, you have magnified the “normal view 10X alike looking through 10 power binoculars. If you zoom to the maximum focal length of 357mm equivalent to 2000mm, the view will be approximately the same as viewing through a 2000 ÷ 43 = about 45X power telescope.

Stated differently, a bird 100 yards distance, at maximum zoom, images as if you were positioned 2.2 yards distant. In metric terms, a bird 100 meters distance images as if it were only 2.2 meters distance.

You zoom lens is remarkable in that it is remarkable as to its zoom range.
Be happy, it’s all good!

Why is XRDP not working? Ive followed numerous tutorials and I still cant connect. (New to Ubuntu)

When trying to connect to my Ubuntu 20.04 system from my windows 10 laptop, it says it cannot connect. Ive tried using xfce4 and others but it says the same thing. I have allowed 3389 through the firewall and it still doesnt allow me to connect. How can I fix it?

mathematics – I’ve been trying to verify Fermat’s last theorem for a small test case using python and I’m facing difficulty with precision handling

Fermat’s last theorem states that there are no natural numbers (1, 2, 3,…) x, y, and z such that x^n + y^n = z^n, in which n is a natural number greater than 2

This is the code I’ve been working with,

def proof(n, g):
  for a in range(1,n):
      for b in range(a, n):
          c = (pow(a, g) + pow(b, g))**(1/g)
          if c.is_integer() and c <= n:
              print(f"{a},{b},{int(c)}")
proof(1000, 6)

The test case always remains 1000, but the exponent which is ‘g’ is changed every time, it ran as expected till g = 5. But when g = 6, the program started providing answers and printed them onto the console. I’m guessing this is a problem with precision and the 6th root of the number I get qualifies as an integer. Please suggest any improvements and how I can fix this problem.

Thank You.

If I delete from my drive – will it delete on another person’s drive that I’ve uploaded to?

Sorry if this is a bit convoluted. My client has shared all their Google Drive folders with me. I do the work, and then upload into the respective folders. For some reason – the work I’ve done ends up on my drive too. No clue why. (If anyone can answer that, that’ll be a bonus!)

If I delete the work from my drive, to free up space – will they delete on my client’s side too?

why would most of my files look this way? ive been having locale issues so im assuming its that or char issues. somewhat new to linux

#1/3 of my files look this way and im working through them and trouble shooting..slowly but surely. 4 months of Linux knowledge total. . sorry for the dumb question.

web – Why has the Internet died? Is there some sort of new Internet that I’ve missed?

I send e-mails to mailing lists. No reply for weeks upon weeks. Dead.

I ask questions on Stack Exchange. No replies. Ignored. Just trolls and toxic people left.

I left freenode because every room was a ghost town in the last few years.

Every search query results in irrelevant garbage and/or eternal reCAPTCHAs.

Fake sites, registration forms that don’t do anything, “phone verification”, “upload photo id to load page”, etc.

The “dark web” doesn’t seem to actually exist at all. I do have Tor browser installed but there are no .onions to visit either.

Nothing seems to work. Nothing (worthwhile) seems to be used at all.

I’ve looked all over for some sort of “new Usenet”, but there is no such thing. All those decentralized projects are minimal and have zero users, in perpetuity.

I feel like I’m going insane. What has happened? How can there be far less activity on the Internet today than it was 30 years ago? How is that logically possible?

I might as well be offline completely. I basically feel like I am.

What is the point of making and adopting all these obscure programming languages that I’ve never even heard of?

I once again found myself reading a bunch of Wikipedia articles, such as: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisp_(programming_language)

On that page (for example), they list a ton of “dialects”, which are separate languages sharing some of the syntax and whatnot.

This is just one of countless articles full of links and mentions to other programming languages, and it just cascades into ever more ones the longer you read/browse.

My head is spinning.

Even though I’ve never kissed a girl or had any kind of social life whatsoever, spending 99% of my childhood (and life in general) in front of computers, I’ve only ever programmed in a very small number of highly supported and established languages. C, C++, PHP, JavaScript, SQL, HTML/CSS (yes, I know they aren’t really programming languages…), QBASIC, Java, VBScript some other weird BASIC… And out of those, I have only retained any kind of knowledge for C, PHP, JS, SQL, and HTML/CSS. The rest, I might as well never have used at this point.

All of these are very famous and used. But even then, I daily am shocked by how the PHP manual pages are like stale, ancient scrolls, with user comments often saying “17 years ago”, etc. Yet this is one of the most popular languages on the planet.

Whenever I go hunting for PHP libraries, I’m often disappointed by the sheer lack of them, or they are unmaintained, etc.

Again, this is for one of the most used programming languages in the world.

My point is, what on Earth do people who use one of these ultra-obscure languages actually do when they need to do anything besides just calculating abstract numbers in their own data structures? What about any “complex work” that requires third-party libraries of various kinds? Do they simply never do anything besides abstract mathematics for academic research?

Although I do my very best to only ever use third-party code when it’s absolutely necessary, it simply is necessary for many things, such as parsing e-mail blobs. (That’s a real programming nightmare to even consider doing manually.) And I frequently need to ask for help on how to do all kinds of things not exactly related to the syntax/function of the programming language itself, but the “overall environment”. And I barely can get any question answered even for PHP.

Imagine if I were using one of these (seemingly) thousands of never-even-heard-of languages. It would be utterly impossible to get any kind of help, and there certainly wouldn’t be any libraries or code snippets to use or learn from. It would be (even more) like being stranded on a remote island, which I already feel like I am with my “popular” languages.

I’ve been wondering about this for a long time now and would appreciate it if somebody could explain what I’m missing. And please don’t focus on Lisp or its dialects just because I used it as an example: there are so many others as well, apparently in current use. And even more seem to pop up constantly.

I don’t understand how people can have the time and energy to learn about these, or why they would either way. What’s the point other than for the person making it to “make their own language” to prove a point to themselves? Do they all hope and believe that they will revolutionize the computer programming language landscape and become the new Fortran/C or something? Is that the “end goal” and “point” of this?
