public bool FastReadout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Boolean
True sets fast readout mode, false sets normal mode

Return Value

Type: Boolean
True when the current readout mode is fast and false when the readout mode is normal.


NotConnectedExceptionMust throw an exception if the information is not available. (Some drivers may require an active connection in order to retrieve necessary information from the camera.)
PropertyNotImplementedExceptionMust throw an exception if CanFastReadout returns False.
Must thrown an exception if no connection is established to the camera. Must throw an exception if CanFastReadout returns False.

Many cameras have a "fast mode" intended for use in focusing. When set to True, the camera will operate in Fast mode; when set False, the camera will operate normally. This property should default to False.

Please note that this function may in some cases interact with ReadoutModes; for example, there may be modes where the Fast/Normal switch is meaningless. In this case, it may be preferable to use the ReadoutModes function to control fast/normal switching.

If this feature is not available, then CanFastReadout must return False.

This is only available for the Camera Interface Version 2
