New direction for cameras
As a result of dissapointing real world testing Wed. a search for a new method of lighting control was started. Two auto-iris lenses were found in our "bag of tricks" and a quest to fit them onto the current system has begun. Currently the connections between the lenses and the DVT cameras do not match, however a seperate subsystem is in the works. A variety of power control chips and a PIC processor are going to be impliment to create a system independant of the main computer that will run from values the DVT will output. High hopes for the usefullness of these lenses ability to control the ever present lighting issue.
