IDS camera support?

Post by smile » Sun Dec 03, 2017 3:32 pm

When there will be IDS camera support?
Seems like great alternative to basler.

Some very nice cameras available like this 18MP one

Hi,

I'm afraid that I'm unlikely to support this brand of camera unless the manufacturer/distributor/reseller were to get in touch and provide some sample cameras to develop and test with. Unless the brand is seeing decent sales (or potential) from Astrophotography then it is probably unlikely that they will have much interest in SharpCap.

Sometimes you may find that non-supported brands of camera may have a DirectShow driver which may be a workable alternative, or for those who can program a little, writing an ASCOM driver using the camera SDK usually turns out not to be too difficult - then SharpCap could use the ASCOM driver.

cheers,

Robin

I will point the manufacturer to this forum, and suggest to them that sending a camera for you is the right way to increase their potential in making more sales.
