User Set Control
Features in the User Set Control category allow you to save camera settings to non-volatile memory so that they can be restored to a known state at any time (after the camera has been restarted).
Types of User Sets
You can select which user set to configure, save, or load with the UserSetSelector feature. There are two classes of user sets.
- User-defined settings
- Factory-defined settings. A factory-defined Default user set is always available. It represents a typical use case for the camera.
If the factory-defined settings must be changed for your application, they can be used as a starting point. From there, only a few features may need to be modified to achieve the desired configuration. The UserSetSave feature saves the current camera settings so that they can be recreated later. Once saved, these new custom settings can be loaded at any time.
The UserSetLoad feature loads the specified user set. Note that one can load a set without first saving. In this situation, the user set contents are the factory-defined default settings.
Start-up User Set
The UserSetDefault feature is used to configure a camera automatically at start-up. This loads the selected user set at start-up time. By default, it applies the factory-defined Default settings. However, you can change it to any user set so that the next time the camera restarts, it comes up with the selected user set.
User Set Managed Features
Due to limited on-board non-volatile memory, not all features are supported by user sets. See UserSetFeatureSelector for the list of all features that are supported. Features that are not listed are either of single session nature or are managed explicitly via other features, such as Defect Table Save.
User Set Conversion
The exact list of features managed by user sets may change between different versions of firmware. Consequently, there may not be a perfect match between the set of features saved to non-volatile memory and the set of features handled by the current version of firmware. In this situation, the camera performs any necessary conversions on all saved user sets. This happens automatically the first time the camera is restarted after a firmware update. The conversion performed depends on the nature of the feature discrepancy:
- Obsolete features - Saved features that are no longer supported in the current firmware. These features are ignored and removed from all subsequently saved user sets.
- Missing features - Saved user sets do not have features that are supported in the current firmware. These missing feature values are filled in using one of the factory-defined sets. If UserSetDefault points to a user-defined set, then the missing feature values are copied from the factory-defined Default set.
