Indeed, the support of color images in µManager is limited. Generally, one can get Snap and Live images from cameras which have a 3 x 8 bit RGB format. Internally, the 3 color images are handled as 4 color images hence the error message you saw. multi-D acquisition does not currently work with color images. Also formats deeper than 8 bits per color are not currently supported. We hope to provide these functionalities in an upcoming release.

Thanks again for your kind attention and help with MicroManager.
Finally I can get some pictures with our C3 cooled camera working with
your "nightly build" software.
About your question 1, yes I can work/operate with Jenoptik software
About configuration file and "DemoCamera" It is only for test . I
tried to "add" the Jenoptik camera to one configuration file that it
have "DemoCamera" already.
About the third question, here you give to me the "key" but it was not
a problem of "CamUSB_API.dll", the problem was "MexJCan.dll" you
include new version "184.108.40.206 and Jenoptik have in their latest
software ProgRes Cap Pro 2.7.7 the old version "220.127.116.11". I just
replace this file for the "old" and the C3 camera works!
I suppose that MicroManager "does not like" Colour RGB pictures
because when I try to take RGB pictures the software give to me:
