Hi everyone, i though i might show my home,made cooler mod for my T3ia DSLR canon. Its completely detachable from the DSLR...
all the part were found on Amazon and Ebay.
took about 2 weeks of tinkering and only about a few hours a day to get it all together,
here are a few pics of the final product...
after running a few test i was able to get the camera down from 32C+ to about 16C+ while the TEC cooler control was set to -20C below ambient.( can go to -50C)
when testing in BYEOS, it reported a -15C drop on ISO 3200 ....you could actually see the difference on each frame.
will post frames HOT/COOLED, later on.
On the bottom picture this is what Pixinsight shows with histogram adjusted for both frames 32C+on the left and 16C on the right.
these are 5 minutes or 300 sec @ ISO 1600... you can see the differences in image brightness and intensity.(darker and cleaner on the cooled one +16C )
sorry about the small images. only allowed 500kb on here.
All credit goes to (Martin Pyott) for coaching me along...
