Last year we didn’t use the USB LifeCam, as we couldn’t figure out how to make the output not be overexposed.
This year, we tried plugging our 4 lifecams into a computer, and configure the settings through the lifecam software. Only one of the four cameras retains the settings, the others go back to their standard overexposed settings.
What is the trick?
In LabVIEW in the stock “Vision Processing vi” the camera is opened with several of the settings being configured. “Set Exposure” defaults to “Auto” but it can be changed to “Custom” and then a numerical exposure % can be input into the vi.
