I received two days ago my all new RisingCam IMX571.
Globally the camera works fine. But the beast is not easy to manage.
First, the gain value seems to be hard to handle as the slider in the control tab of the camera goes from 100 to 45000 (In the source of the INDI driver 0-->400 and there is a switch from LCG to HCG @900 - very weird). I am not very confident in the value I can choose to shoot.
Another problem comes from temperature management. See joined screen capture.
And finally, I can't lock the debug option of the driver.
For the moment this is my first remarks on this cam.
I am waiting for clear skies and a less annoying moon to continue my tests.
I am in touch with someone from Risingcam.
They gave me some curves to try to fix my hesitations about the gain value. But the choice of the right value is still not really clear to me.
And I don't have many clear nights to check it.
For the error concerning the temperature sensor information. I sent the sdk I received with the camera to Jasem. As it seems more recent than the one used for the INDI current version, I hope it will fix the problem.
The underlying problem is that I am not very confident to the value returned in Ekos. But I might be too careful.
Ah, good. Yeah, Eddie responds to messages but works in sales. I've not yet managed to speak to anyone with technical knowledge.
I've told him that if he can ship from Europe, I'm buying. Let's see.
Good luck anyway. Most of the stuff you should be able to test during daytime.
So the error message about failure getting sensor temperature is still here.
Might be on a timeout while trying to get info from sensor without answer of it. Seems to disappears when doing off/on on cooler button. As if the sensor is not online since we do it.
If this could help current or future owners of the camera here are joins the curves I received from Eddie of Risingcam.
Hi Patrick, I have the same cam. Gain 100 means 0. Aslo found optimal offset 190-200 (2/3 hist shifted in biases). Temp error rises when setup 0C, I dont know why. If you change this value the error disapered.
My Risingcam IMX571 returns to duty. I had issues with the driver on RPi 4 with previous versions of INDI. The last version has fixed the problem.
I agree with Dmitrii 0 or 100 is quite equivalent, 200 seems to be a reasonable value.
Those gain curves are really a bit confusing.
I still have a problem with the offset. I really don't know what value to use. So by default I set it to 10.
About the drivers, I don't see the plus value to update it.
