All G2 revision 3+, G3 and G4 CCD cameras are software compatible,
so they share the same driver.
New driver works under both MaxIm DL (camera control and image
processing software—see the Diffraction Limited
version 4 and version 5.
Driver version 1.3 fixes the following problems:
Previous version drivers could download image from the camera
without previously closing of the shutter. This could occur when the
PC processor utilization reached 100% at the end of the exposure
(typically when a really slow PC was used to control the camera,
e.g. Intel Atom based netbook with low memory). Computer was then
not able to handle message, requesting closing of the shutter, and
started image download immediately. This version fixes this problem
and ensures shutter is closed before image download regardless of
the CPU utilization.
This version also fixes following of the defined CCD
cooling/warming slopes (parameter Max. step in degrees
Celsius per minute, defined in the driver Advanced Setup dialog
box). Previous version drivers usually changed the temperature with
slower speed than requested.
