HamamatsuHam maximum exposure time (and bit depth)

cprubbi
Dear All,
The device adapter HamamatsuHam has Exposure property as range and it used to be 0-10 seconds but now (don't know exactly when this happened) it seems to be set to a range of 0-1 seconds.
Is there any way to override this or any chance of getting back to the previous device adapter?
Also, PixelType now only allows 16bit.
The older device adapter (Hamamatsu) has no range for exposure and allows both 8bit and 16bit.
Thanks for any help
Regards
Carlos

Carlos,

There is a property with the driver called "EXPOSURE FULL RANGE" which is set to DISABLE by default. If it is disabled, the max exposure you can set is 1 second. This property appears when the camera you are controlling has an exposuretime maximum greater than 1 second. If you wish to access longer exposure times, just set this property to ENABLE.

The reason why this property was in place was because some of the cameras we support allow for exposure times as long as several HOURS!!!! And with the slider bar in Micro-Manager, the smallest movement of that bar will change the exposure by minutes. This is actually annoying if you have a live sequence running and accidentally touch the slider.

Patrick Gregorio

In reply to this post by Arthur D. Edelstein
The EXPOSURE FULL RANGE property addresses the original poster's first question - but what about setting PixelDepth? Now that the Orca flash4.0 V3 supports 8bit output, this could save us immense amounts of conversion time (our downstream software requires 8bit images). But the driver shows only 16bit for PixelDepth...

thanks in advance

I would suggest contacting Hamamatsu, at issue is the functionality of the HamamatsuHam device adapter under their control.
