INDI/V4L2 Pixel size detection

Well, I only when wondering if it'd been merged, figured out I hadn't submitted the pull request for the latest one. Ooops. I did, since Celestron published a PDF listing the pixel sizes, add that.

Does anyone know of a good database of UVC cameras (webcams) and pixel sizes? (I've found I have to search a fair bit sometimes, based on the ones I own.)

It seems the reported name in the post above is the same for several generic camera boards using the Sony IMX290 color version. I have a version purchased on Aliexpress with a product name of "2mp Camera module"

Reported Name In Indi using V4l2 driver: USB 2.0 Camera: USB Camera Common Name: Generic USB Camera Module IMX290
Pixel size 2.9um x 2.9um

Using the INDI webcam driver, there is no access to adjust this cameras settings (brightness, contrast, gamma, gain, etc.) but will give a looping feed in Ekos for guiding. If selecting V4L2 CCD the settings are available but there is no image when trying to use it under Ekos.

Hi all,

I am relatively new here, but my driver spat out this message and I am here to say that it works!

2020-12-27T21:48:42: [INFO] Please report that the camera worked: Name: NexImage 10/NexImage 10 Detected and working, to bit.ly/2S1Vxjq
2020-12-27T21:48:42: [INFO] Setting pixel size correctly for NexImage 10

I am not sure what information you will need, but its the first time I am seeing this mesage, and yet not the first time it has been plugged in.

Hello.
It's good, I could follow the documentation, and program the streaming as best I could.
To be tested in real life...

Hello.
I can't make it.
At some point, without changing the settings, I find myself with this window.
File Attachment:

I try a live video that fails, then make 1 or 2 successful captures.
But when I restart a live video, message "....crashed, restart or continue?", everything is blocked and Kstars closes.
I unplug and plug the camera back in.
But still the same, after several adjustments, impossible to make it work properly.
Has anyone ever managed to make this camera work ?
Thank you very much.
