As a proof-of-concept, I'm trying to get a Moticam 1000 USB camera
set up under MM 1.4.7. After installing the Motic Images Plus software
and drivers, I can access the camera through their application. When I
go to configure MM, however, the moticam adapter is missing from the Add
You need to download the Micro-Manger compatible Motic driver software at:
where a Readme is included for instructions.
Hope this helps.

Please download and install the Micromanager comptible Motic driver software at:
for the newly updated pack "MIDevice for Micro-manager (02.02.2012)" and follow the Readme for intructions.
Hope this helps.
Motic Camera support was added very recently. Try using the latest

Background: Trying to use a Motic Camera with Micromanager, but the
MoticCamera device doesn't appear in the Add Device dialogue. Using the
latest 32bit nightly builds under Windows 7 (happened with x64 versions,
too). The Motic camera works just fine with their software and drivers...
I apologize in advance if I'm being impossibly dense.....
I grabbed the 02012012 nightly build on MM - both the x32 and x64
versions. In neither of them does any variation of "Motic" appear in the
Add Device dialogue. Am I completely blind?
..., Initialize, 1
Error in device "MotiCam": No cameras found. Please connect a Motic camera
and turn it on (100)
Pretty sure the relevant driver has been installed since the camera appears
as an imaging device with a working driver in the Device manager. Also the
camera works with Motics own...
... that Motic has a common API for Windows and Linux, this might
be possible. You'd have to be extremely lucky for it to work without
modification, but hopefully this list will be able to help you with
specific error messages you might encounter.
To compile the MoticCamera device adapter, you...
there are no official Linux release tarballs yet.
Before doing that-
Motic's PDF catalog indicates they have GNU/Linux compatible drivers
and software (although I don't see a place to download it on their
website; their "MIDevice" still only has Windows libraries). Inquire
... (I think/hope), and it seems to be related to the new driver from Motic and not the nightly build of MM.
After much testing, and trying with a different camera fra TIS, I have found that the issue only happens with the Motic camera and hence must be a driver issue.
Thanks for your replies and help though!!
