Color Settings

Open the Color Settings dialog to adjust the color settings of the image sensors in order to optimize the camera for the lighting that is available.

Note:


Description of Parameters

Linked Image Control

If Linked Image Control is activated, the camera uses the same exposure values and internal image correction settings for both sensors. This ensures that the images from both sensors look as similar as possible.

Note: This parameter is only available for models with identical image sensors.

White Balance

Under certain light conditions, the color truthfulness of white may vary. White balance is used to correct this kind of color variation.

Select one of the following profiles for white balance:

Automatic WB The factory default setting should produce the best results with most applications.
Clear Blue Skylight This profile corresponds to a source of light with a color temperature of 16000K. This kind of illumination is prevalent when the sky is clear and bright blue. If the automatic white balance does not deliver satisfactory results, try using this white balance profile.
Twilight This profile corresponds to a source of light with a color temperature of 10000K. This kind of illumination is prevalent shortly after sunset and shortly before sunrise when the sky is clear and bright blue. If the automatic white balance does not deliver satisfactory results, try using this white balance profile.
Cloudy/Hazy This profile corresponds to a source of light with a color temperature of 8000K. This kind of illumination is prevalent when the sky is very cloudy. If the automatic white balance does not deliver satisfactory results, try using this white balance profile.
Outdoor This profile corresponds to a source of light with a color temperature of 7000K. This kind of illumination is prevalent during the day outside of buildings. If the automatic white balance does not deliver satisfactory results, try using this white balance profile.
Sunny This profile corresponds to a source of light with a color temperature of 5500K. This kind of illumination is prevalent when the sun is shining brightly. If the automatic white balance does not deliver satisfactory results, try using this white balance profile.
Morning Sun This profile corresponds to a source of light with a color temperature of 5000K. This kind of illumination is prevalent when the sun is shining in the morning and in the evening. If the automatic white balance does not deliver satisfactory results, try using this white balance profile.
Fluorescent Lamp This profile corresponds to a source of light with a color temperature of 4000K. This kind of illumination is prevalent when many fluorescent lamps are used. If the automatic white balance does not deliver satisfactory results, try using this white balance profile.
Halogen Lamp This profile corresponds to a source of light with a color temperature of 3000K. This kind of illumination is prevalent when many halogen lamps are used. If the automatic white balance does not deliver satisfactory results, try using this white balance profile.
Incandescent Lamp This profile corresponds to a source of light with a color temperature of 2500K. This kind of illumination is prevalent when many incandescent lamps are used. If the automatic white balance does not deliver satisfactory results, try using this white balance profile.
Gray World You can select this profile if the illumination of scene observed by the camera changes often. The camera tries to automatically adjust image color without actually knowing the color temperature of the light sources.
Color Saturation Color saturation controls the color intensity. The higher the saturation, the more intense are the colors. The value -10 produces a gray-scale image.
Blue balance Controls the blue channel of the image.
Color Balance for Red Controls the red channel of the image.

Storing the Configuration

Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.

Click on the Factory button to load the factory defaults for this dialog (this button may not be present in all dialogs).

Click on the Restore button to undo your most recent changes that have not been stored in the camera permanently.

Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
