Black Level#

The Black Level camera feature allows you to change the overall brightness of an image. All gray values of the pixels are changed by a specified amount.

For example, you can increase the gray value of each pixel in the image by 3.

Using the Feature#

To adjust the black level, enter a value for the BlackLevel parameter.

The minimum black level setting is 0. The maximum setting depends on the camera model.

The change in the gray value resulting from the BlackLevel parameter value also depends on the camera model.

Info

Basler recommends setting the black level to 0 before using any of the color enhancement features, e.g., Balance White, Color Transformation, or Gamma. After the color enhancements have been applied, you can change the black level as desired. However, increasing the black level will decrease the color accuracy.

  1. On daA1280-54um/uc, daA1280-54lm/uc, and puA1280-54um/uc cameras, the black level settings are applied to the pixel data after the gain settings. On all other dart and pulse cameras, the black level settings are applied before the gain settings.

Sample Code#

ace classic/U/L GigE cameras#

// Set the black level to 32
camera.BlackLevelRaw.SetValue(32);
INodeMap& nodemap = camera.GetNodeMap();
// Set the black level to 32
CIntegerPtr(nodemap.GetNode("BlackLevelRaw"))->SetValue(32);
INodeMap& nodemap = camera.GetNodeMap();
// Set the black level to 32
CIntegerParameter(nodemap, "BlackLevelRaw").SetValue(32);
// Set the black level to 32
camera.Parameters[PLCamera.BlackLevelRaw].SetValue(32);
// Set the black level to 32
Pylon.DeviceSetIntegerFeature(hdev, "BlackLevelRaw", 32);
/* Macro to check for errors */
#define CHECK(errc) if (GENAPI_E_OK != errc) printErrorAndExit(errc)
GENAPIC_RESULT errRes = GENAPI_E_OK;  /* Return value of pylon methods */
/* Set the black level to 32 */
errRes = PylonDeviceSetIntegerFeature(hdev, "BlackLevelRaw", 32);
CHECK(errRes);

Other Cameras#

// Set the black level to 32
camera.BlackLevel.SetValue(32);
INodeMap& nodemap = camera.GetNodeMap();
// Set the black level to 32
CIntegerPtr(nodemap.GetNode("BlackLevel"))->SetValue(32);
INodeMap& nodemap = camera.GetNodeMap();
// Set the black level to 32
CIntegerParameter(nodemap, "BlackLevel").SetValue(32);
// Set the black level to 32
camera.Parameters[PLCamera.BlackLevel].SetValue(32);
// Set the black level to 32
Pylon.DeviceSetIntegerFeature(hdev, "BlackLevel", 32);
/* Macro to check for errors */
#define CHECK(errc) if (GENAPI_E_OK != errc) printErrorAndExit(errc)
GENAPIC_RESULT errRes = GENAPI_E_OK;  /* Return value of pylon methods */
/* Set the black level to 32 */
errRes = PylonDeviceSetIntegerFeature(hdev, "BlackLevel", 32);
CHECK(errRes);

You can also use the pylon Viewer to easily set the parameters.
