Hi there!

I'm soooo Huppy for the forum.

I'm starting using c# with cameras and it is my first imaging source camera.
Till now used to work only with smart cameras.

I have some questions
I didn't manage to hardware trigger the camera and enable the outstrobe...

Hi there!
Thanks for the reply!

Till now i manage to solve all the problems i faced.

Finally i got the external trigger get worked and the out strobe of the camera works too..

The problem i face is about the image...

It is so dark!

I canot have exposure times below 1ms...
Why is this happening?

I have good external illumination and the lens is the 8mm computar from the site...
The aperture is near to totally open and still the image is dark.
The gain is set to 0.97.
The white balance at auto...
Is this normal for this sensor?

Good question. I do not know, what you photograph. Therefore, I can not justify, what to see a 1/1000 second exposure time. If I point the camera out of the window and use 1/1000 second exposure time 0 gain, I must close the iris of the lens to avoid overexposed images.
I use the maximum resolution.

What are you looking on?
What is your light condition?
How are the all properties of the camera set?
