Sensor settings

Postby sexton » Sun Aug 26, 2018 1:15 pm

I know most of your examples have these set to false but I am looking for clarification on how they actually work while set to true? Do they adjust continuously?

sensor.set_auto_gain(True)
sensor.set_auto_whitebal(True)

Please visit the OpenMV Cam product page and download the sensor application note linked to the datasheet section of the page.

Thanks but the pdf doesn't answer my question. If I set these to true how often does the camera adjust?

Every frame more or less. Um, read this PDF:

This is for a different camera sensor but OmniVision doesn't actually change how core tech concepts work too much.
