QCam device class in ACQ4 provides support for all cameras that make use of the QImaging QCam library. With only a few exceptions, these devices follow all of the conventions described for generic Camera devices.
QImaging cameras support all of the configuration options as generic Camera devices. Extra options are:
- serial: An integer identifying the camera to be used (for systems that have more than one QCam-based camera). If an incorrect serial number is given, then an error will be displayed listing the serial numbers of cameras found in the system.
- defaults: In addition to the standard camera parameters, several parameters defined by the QCam library may be specified here. These parameters are listed in the camera’s Manager interface.
