View Full Version : Gamma setting for linear response

October 19, 2007, 18:20:19
Hello TIS support team,

I'm using my DMK21AF04.AS for a while and wonder about one thing:
What driver gamma setting does deliver a linear camera response ("Gamma=1", linear curve). I use the gamma slider at "10" = leftmost value in IC Capture.AS and the response seems to be close to linear. What's the real "flat" value ?

Thanks & best regards,.

Hi Oliver,

Gamma = 10 is in the camera 1.0. This is the most linear.

Hi Stefan,

thanks for your quick response! 10=linear was also my impression :)

Best regards,

I found the spec, 100 is gamma=1. Most of the folks I talk with imaging Mars are using a gamma setting of 0 with their firewire cameras. What is the equivalent of 0 for the USB cameras? The scales don't seem to match.

First of all, FireWire has not Gamma value 0.

The FireWire Gamma value is in 10 ... 24. Following formulas are used for calculation:
Gamma = n/10

Gamma = n / 100

Thanks for clearing this up Stephan.
