View Full Version : saving camera default params

Hi there,

I'm quite a new with FW capturing. I am using a simple application which is capturing still images from video stream. This application should be automatically initialize itself when it is started (no operator to set video parameters)
I am encountered a bit of problem. Because of special situation I should start the camera with settings "auto exposures" with reference 25 opposite 40 (as it is defaulted) /I have made several tests and I found in my special situation the best quality comes if this parameter is set to 25/

if I set this param e.g. with IC Imaging Control Standard 1.4 it is OK up to that time until I power off the camera. After camera powered again this parameter goes back to 40. (And should set it again manually)
In my application not possible the set this parameter by program. Also I do not want rewrite the whole application to use IC activeX controls, so I need any other solution...
This parameter probably is stored in windows registry under a spec key, but I cannot find it.
Can somebody tell me where can I find it?

Thanks in advance
