Values
Description
Genlock Off
Master
Slave
External
Synchronize frame capture across multiple cameras. Genlock is a multi-camera arrangement where a master camera provides timing signals to one or more slave cameras. It is also possible to use an external timing source to control frame capture.
Extended
Dynamic
Range
Off
A, B, C, D
Enhanced Dynamic Range EDR is a technique where a non-linear transfer function is used to allow a greater dynamic range of luminosity to fit in the same number of luminance data bits. SC1 cameras only.
Force
Monochrome
Off
On
Capture grayscale images instead of color images. Color cameras only.
Video
Encoding
High, Medium,
Low, Custom
Tradeoff Video Quality versus file size.
The video encoding quality setting allows you to configure the camera to create smaller video files with the trade off of sacrificing video image quality.
Trigger
Debounce
Off
On
If debounce is on, a 5 ms debounce delay occurs between the falling Trigger edge and when the camera processes the falling edge. With debounce off, there is no delay and the falling edge is processed immediately.
Gamma
Correction
Off
On
For enhanced video post-processing, the camera's gamma correction can be disabled.Gamma correct must be applied somewhere in the workflow to get excellent image quality in the dark regions. If in doubt, leave Gamma Correction on.
Review
before
Saving
Off
On
Review before saving allows you to capture one or more videos (depending on multishot setting) and once the videos have been captured, you can review the captured video, frame by frame, before saving. You select the starting frame to save and the ending frame to save. This allows you to discard leading and trailing portions of the video that are uninteresting thus reducing the time it takes to save a captured video.
Status
Timeout
0 - 120 Seconds until the button box, current setting box, and multishot box (if in multishot mode) automatically hide during live preview. Moving the mouse causes the boxes to appear again.
