Hi,

I have a question about using a Basler camera (USB 3.0, https://www.baslerweb.com/en/products/cameras/area-scan-cameras/ace/aca1920-155uc/) as a behavior camera during miniscope recording. I cannot connect it from the JSTOR file and when I search in the device manager it doesn´t appear in the camera category but in a new category, Basler users do you know how to use this camera with the miniscope?

I appreciate any suggestion or indication.

Cesar

Hi Cesar,
I think it looks like the Basler cameras use a proprietary USB data protocol. Right now, the Miniscope DAQ Software only supports the UVC protocol for cameras. This can be modified in the source code but I am not sure if Basler supplies C++ libraries for interfacing with their cameras.

Hi Daniel, thanks for your reply. Yes, Basler provides a pylon SDK that includes the C++ API. How could be modified in the source code?

Best regards,

Hi Cesar

Hi. I am currently using Basler camera w/ miniscope recording. Using NI board, I send TTL to Basler camera and miniscope to start recording operated by Labview program. Hope this can help your set up.
