…unibrain camera is just a toy, help please.

January 13, 2008 | 3:14 pm

hello, I`m investigating to control data from pixel info, for that porpouses I bought cyclops and the only available camera for mac= unibrain I-camera (according to my searches).

but this device doesn`t register the outside world seriously… colors, details and light are seen thru unibrain as a blurred shit.

isn’t there anyother camera option for a powerbook?.

I supouse that if I want to do a serious work, and a camera must be my system`s eyes, those eyes souldn’t be miopic!!

can anyone tell me a serious alternative to unibrain?

thank you so.

the unibrains can be in focus, no problem. are you sure you’ve set
the focus ring correctly, are you sure you’re using the right lens?

Well, the Unibrain industrial FW cameras certainly give very good
results, and are far superior to the Fire-i cameras which I suppose
you have been working with:

Oh, of course I`m using the most simple one, the "fire-i" (wich has a very bad control on focus),

so, has anybody tryed the industrial ones with a power or mac book?

thank you again.

we’re using the 501b, the greyscale one. i found that i had to set
the brightness to 0. to make it work, but it’s doing great with IR.

ok, thankyou… so it means they work perfectly on a portable mac…

but, what about colors… would a unibrain color camera of that price range (800$-1000$) be able to "see" them propperly? (and so on to use them with control porpouses).

any especific info (or links) would be very appreciated!.

best.

it’s sounds like you don’t set the silber ring for focus.. or you need a cam for industrial image processing
