Gain Auto (BCON for MIPI)#
To adjust the gain manually, use the Gain feature.
Using the Feature#
Enabling or Disabling Gain Auto#
To enable or disable the Gain Auto auto function, set the
GainAuto parameter to one of the following operating modes: -
Continuous: The camera adjusts the gain continuously while images are being acquired. -
Off: Disables the Gain Auto auto function. The gain remains at the value resulting from the last automatic or manual adjustment.
- On daA2500-60mc cameras, enabling or disabling Gain Auto also enables or disables Exposure Auto.
- When the camera is capturing images continuously, the auto function takes effect with a short delay. The first few images may not be affected by the auto function.
// Enable Gain Auto by setting the operating mode to Continuous camera.GainAuto.SetValue(GainAuto_Continuous);
// Enable Gain Auto by setting the operating mode to Continuous CEnumParameter(nodemap, "GainAuto").SetValue("Continuous");
/* 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 */ /* Enable Gain Auto by setting the operating mode to Continuous */ errRes = PylonDeviceFeatureFromString(hdev, "GainAuto", "Continuous"); CHECK(errRes);
You can also use the pylon Viewer to easily set the parameters.
