@crispyoz for now the plan is to stick with the Python API, but we're open to changing our minds based on feedback from users!
Let us know which programming language you would prefer for the API and why by filling out this quick google form: https://forms.gle/1YxstDwRg73ns3vcA
@Lazar-Demin Thanks very much. Unfortunately, that does not state any absolute photon intensity, but the spectrum is very useful. The intended use is in an experiment where we want to measure bioluminescence emission via the PMT, but at the same time monitor for movement via a camera system. As "normal cameras don't usually need more light than our signal and would introduce too high levels of noise, we are looking for a way to sidestep this issue, and your camera might be a possibility.
1 - Depth Data from the API
Yes, you can definitely get completely raw depth data using the Python API! Here's the frame object you get back when reading from the camera: https://taulidarcommon.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api.html#module-TauLidarCommon.frame
More docs on the API here:
And the API is on GitHub:
2 - the lens
Wanted to ask first, how much wider does your use case require?
The lens is a standard mount so it's possible to change it. I can find out more about this if you're interested.
If it's a huge amount then you're correct, the projection might become an issue. In this scenario, you can actually use 2 or more cameras in tandem - more info coming on this soon!
