Topic: oCam 1CGN-U USB Global Shutter

oCam 1CGN-U is a USB global shutter color camera.  It’s listed as UVC compliant
USB 3.0. I can’t find anything listed about direct show.  Seems to be a new
Camera. I’m using Kinovea for golf swing analysis and the global shutter would be useful.

Most global shutter cameras cost much more.
Do you think it will work with Kinovea?

Re: oCam 1CGN-U USB Global Shutter

I have not tried this particular camera but if it is UVC compliant in theory it should work out of the box.

If you try please let us know the outcome.

Great, I’ll give it a try and let you know. The Global shutter should be great for swing analysis.

Re: oCam 1CGN-U USB Global Shutter

I bought the ocam 1cgn and cannot use it in kinovea. It works with their own windows viewer but not in kinovea. Kinovea shows it in the drop down but picture is black. This claims to be a UVC compliant camera. Any ideas?

Re: oCam 1CGN-U USB Global Shutter

Hi,
The fact that you mention a drop down makes me think you are using version 0.8.15, can you try in 0.8.26 and see if it works there? The way to select cameras has changed by the way, there is a new tab on the main explorer/window with the list of cameras.

Also, make sure you close their viewer before trying it in Kinovea as the link with the camera is exclusive.

You are correct. I will try that and report back.
