My application contains a number of Argus cameras, and stitches them together. If I set the cameras up to use auto exposure and one of the cameras sees a brighter scene than the others, for example, then the offending camera “darkens” the overall image and the stitched result is noticeably uneven where the images connect.
Is there a way to put one of the cameras in auto mode (white balance, exposure, etc.) and then have it control all of the other cameras in the system automatically?
As a workaround, I’m considering setting one camera to be “auto”, while the others are “manual”. I’m going to investigate whether or not I can query the “auto” camera for its auto settings so I can propagate them to the others, but if there’s an easier way, I would be thankful. Furthermore I’m concerned that there may be some settings I can’t control.
