Min/Max Exposure time settings??
« on: October 14, 2014, 02:26:57 am »
What have you guys found using the Empire cams to be a good balance for day and night footage? Right now all my cams exposure times are all original. Right now daytime footage is smooth, but nighttime footage is choppy with vehicles.

Forgot to add that all my cams are set to 10fps and min/max exposure is set to auto in camera config.

It's probably increasing the exposure time and overriding the FPS setting to provide better images at a way low FPS, which will be choppy and blurry with motion.  Lare's settings should take care of that.

The important ones:

Maximum exposure time, which will give you 15 fps minimum frame rate (this may cause some motion blur; 33 ms will reduce that but will reduce image quality as well, so it's a trade-off)

Slow shutter, which overrides maximum exposure time if enabled, I believe.
