Nobody has a clue? Imaging source has released a new GigE camera, I would really like to get one, but I'm not sure it is going to work in my setup... Does anyone has an idea about how to use it in Jitter, on a mac?
I am very interested in this as well. I spoke to a guy from Prosilica last week who made it seem like it would be extremely difficult to write an interface to pull frames at any decent rate (like more than a few fps). That's awesome that you were able to get 120 fps out of the box with the Basler! Too bad they don't have a driver for Mac.
What mostly attracted me to the Prosilica is that their new GX series allows you to control the focus from the computer, which is quite rare in industrial cameras, but I guess these were made for the military security market. I am about to try the same thing by hacking an ENG lens with a microcontroller so I can basically have a broadcast quality PTZ camera to control with Max.
I should have been more clear. He didn't say that there were difficulties with the camera, just that it would likely be difficult for *me* to write a driver. I guess they only hire engineers for sales and this guy said that, about ten years out of school, he is unable to write a working driver from scratch and could only write a program to pull a couple of frames independently. Considering that I have no formal training in computer science or engineering, I would likely run into some problems.
That said, I believe the Prosilica Gx series only pulls 60 fps, with some models much slower. I think he said one only gets 15 fps, which I guess is alright for security purposes (as opposed to manufacturing).
I am particularly interested in really high framerates for my own purposes. Have you tried any reasonably priced network camera that can get a higher framerate than the Basler?
I'm actually looking at purchasing the same camera you were describing before I found this post. Did it really work that easy with Max if not what were the problems you had to overcome to use it? I was planning on using their SDK and writing custom software, but if it works with GigE through jit.dx.grab then my life would become so much easier!
