In this release we are making changes to improve the camera's image quality by addressing the vertical banding issue that some users have reported and adding some new features to the power controller to make unattended operation of the camera a little easier.

Note that this update will affect your camera's factory calibration, you should back up your factory calibration before applying this update if case you have to revert back to v0.3.1 at a later time.

Notable Changes:
  • Automatic ADC calibration during black calibration, which should reduce column banding across a wider temperature range.
  • Add a storage tab to the util menu to view, eject and format the attached storage devices.
  • Speed boost at most resolutions, with a top speed of 1069fps at 1280x1024, and 40420fps at 320x96.
  • Configurable automated power-on and off depending on the AC adaptor status.

Minutae:
  • Factory black calibration is now user accessible from the Factory tab of the util window.
  • The software update button has been moved to the storage tab of the util window.
  • Shipping mode to disable power-on by battery until an AC adaptor is attached.
  • Add a watchdog to reboot the camera in case of power-on boot failure.

Fixed Bugs:
  • Memory leak in the M3 video coprocessor which could lead to a crash after lots of H.264 encoding.
