Hi. I have writing a very simple app for the Panasonic CF-H1 that uses the camera as a "preview" video window, and then I have a button that "snaps" apicture. This snapshot picture seems to be grabbed from the video "stream". I need the snapshot to be at the highest resoluton (1600x1200) but the video preview does not need to be high at all.
The problem is that the videogets real choppy when it's set to it's highest resolution -- at 640x480 the frame rate is 30fps, and the camera focuses real quick. Change this to 1600x1200 and it drops to about 1 frame per 10 seconds, and struggles to focus.
Is there a better way? Why is thefocusso slow to react at 1600x1200? I mean -- it's unusable, even in broad daylight.
I'm open to any ideas or suggestions ...
