Hello
I have owned a DFK 31AU03.AS camera for more that a year, but I am just starting to use it due to a long illness. I would like to know if someone can help me with the settings. Should I be using it in Y800, or YUY2 mode, and what is the best codec to use for color. Help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, and regards
Ed

Ed,

I've attached a couple of files on codecs and their usage.

Personally, I always use the BY8 and RGB24 combo. This produces a large file BUT it is already debayered and ready to use in any software I own. However, I understand Y800 keeps the file size down and is easily debayered in Registax, etc.

Hope this helps?
