Camera App Guide

Camera App Overview

The Camera App is your centralized solution for configuring oak cameras and monitoring real-time imagery on your Amiga. This intuitive application streamlines the process of camera configuration and data recording, allowing for effortless customization and operation.

Key Functionalities

Real-Time Visualization

The app provides a live feed from each connected oak camera, allowing users to see exactly what the camera sees. This real-time visualization aids in making informed adjustments to camera settings for optimal recording quality.


Camera Configuration

Users have the flexibility to configure each oak camera individually. The following settings can be adjusted directly within the app:

  • Exposure Time (ms): Control the duration of each frame's exposure to light.
  • ISO Value: Adjust the camera's sensitivity to light.
  • Lens Position: Fine-tune the focus of the camera lens to capture sharp images.
  • Settings Adjustment: Quick access to camera settings, with sliders for manual adjustments and checkboxes for automatic configurations.
  • Camera Selection: Tabs for each oak device enable users to switch between different cameras effortlessly.


For convenience, users may also opt for:

  • Auto Exposure: The camera automatically adjusts the exposure settings for the best image quality.
  • Auto Focus: The camera will manage its focus settings to ensure clarity and detail in recorded imagery.

Double click anyone of the auto controls to open up their manual configuration settings. Single Log File allows you to set a maximum file size for log recording.

Direct Recording

Start/Stop Recording: Simple controls to begin or end the recording session.

To initiate data recording through the Camera App, simply press the Start Recording button at the upper right corner. The button will switch from green to red and start flashing, signaling that the recording is underway. This functionality is especially handy for capturing various imagery data streams such as RGB, left, right, and disparity views, all without requiring extra configuration.


By default, all the topic streams in the Recorder are captured when you press the RECORD button on the navigation bar, or the Start Recording button on the camera app. You may select individual topics to record from the Recorder tab.

With its user-friendly design and comprehensive feature set, the Camera App is an indispensable tool for anyone looking to maximize the capabilities of their Amiga robot's camera system.
