Expanded Camera Control

Heiko Wilkens
Users of Lumenera cameras will appreciate the effort Heiko Wilkens put into developing Lucam Recorder (Pro upgrade 75€, or about US$96). The program supports all Lumenera USB 2.0 camera models, with features such as RAM capture, 16-bit AVI format acquisition, focus estimating, automated imaging sessions, and support for most popular motorized and manual filter wheels. Users have complete control over gamma, contrast, brightness, and exposure length using sliders, and a histogram can be displayed in real time to ensure properly exposed images. A detailed time stamp set to either Universal or local time can be embedded in each frame of the recorded images, and all formats are compatible with RegiStax 4.
