  • External/internal triggering.


  • For color, currently only the modes "BGRA8" and "RGBA8" are supported.
  • The "Frame rate" property will not necessarily affect the real frame rate in the live-mode for every camera model. It does, however, determine the maximal exposure time.

  • If several cameras are connected, currently only the first camera in the list will be addressed.
  • With Linux and OpenJDK, using the color modes may cause problems (monochrome modes work), with Sun/Oracle JDK all modes work.
