Stated differently, 10% will fail by the stated life. So, if Canon follows that statistical method of calculating life, at 100,000 clicks, 90% of shutters should still be working. The science of statistical analysis is quite advanced (re: Motorola and six sigma); in the case of a Canon shutter the numbers could also predict the percentage that might reach 1,000,000 and the number likely that would fail at 10,000. It's an estimate of "average" shutter life, so roughly half should (theoretically) fail before that and half after. However, as with any technical product, a good proportion of the "before" failures are likely to be ones that let go quite early due to an inherent manufacturing fault, which shows up in the first 10,000 images or so.

Remote Video Inspection Intro. What is Remote Video Inspections?

Remote Video Inspection Intro

Remote Video Inspection (RVI) is the use of video camera systems to image the internals of structures, equipment, and components that are otherwise inaccessible due to physical configurations, safety concerns, or other limitations. Video inspection camera systems can range in size from several-millimetre in diameter, such as video scopes to large robotic wheeled or tracked pipe crawlers, depending on the specific applications.

Control Center Construction Camera Software - Visual Inspection of Concrete - InterNACHI. By Nick Gromicko and Kenton Shepard Most information available about concrete is written for contractors, for those who design concrete mixes, and for those who perform invasive testing.

Visual Inspection of Concrete - InterNACHI

The information provided here is specifically for those who perform non-invasive, visual inspections of concrete, such as home inspectors or commercial property inspectors using the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties. In evaluating concrete problems, one of the important decisions home inspectors must make is determining whether a problem is the result of conditions that have stabilized with a low chance of continuing future problems, or whether the conditions that caused the problem are such that there is a high probability that problems will continue or worsen. Chemically, concrete is a complicated material, and a visual inspection will not always answer those questions.

Class Surveys. We have a thorough knowledge of classification requirements and the structure of offshore oil & gas facilities.

Class Surveys

Classification societies such as ABS (American Bureau of Shipping), DNV (Det Norske Veritas), Germanischer Lloyd and Lloyds Register have for many years relied on external rope access specialists to assist the attending surveyor during the class inspection of ships and offshore structures. Our experience gained from working with various classification societies on many different types of facilities allows us to plan and execute surveys that are completed safely, to a high standard and with minimal disturbance to onboard operations. We have been audited and certified by ABS and Lloyds Register as an external specialist and work closely with their surveyors in providing the following services to complete survey requirements: Non destructive testing techniques Remote camera inspection systems.
