Camera v1.3 not detected

I have been testing the microscope mostly with the Rasp cam V2,however a day before I tried to switch to the older one i.e. v1.3 cam. Its not detecting and am seeing network error. When I tried to capture pic in terminal, it was successful.

Hi @Muralig1984 that’s probably a problem with our camera control code assuming you have a v2; unfortunately we don’t have any old camera modules set up to test with, we’ve entirely switched to v2 as v1.3 has reached its end-of-life although they are often still available from resellers, often very cheaply.

If you are able to debug where in the Python code it is failing (e.g. connecting to your microscope via SSH and using the output of ofm serve, or looking in ofm log) it might be possible to fix - but as we can’t test the fix, I should really just be reccomending everyone uses the better-supported v2 camera. The documentation might not be clear on that point - if you can point me at anywhere we suggest a v1.3 is still OK, I should probably just update the documentation to say it’s no longer supported.

Yes, at the moment the OFM instructions recommend to use v2 but also say that v1 still works so I’ve added an issue to clarify that we only support v2.

Delta Stage docs only specify the v2.

Thanks @samuelmcdermott I’m hoping to do a microscope patch release with documentation fixes and will add that in.
