Coriander project is the Linux graphical user interface (GUI) for controlling a Digital Camera through the IEEE1394 bus (aka FireWire, or iLink).
Coriander is full featured and besides changing the parameters of the camera it will also let you record video, send images to an FTP site, convert the video to a V4L stream,... A live display is of course provided too.
Best of all, Coriander will work with any camera that is compatible with the IIDC specifications (also known as DCAM specs). This includes most 1394 webcams and a majority of industrial or scientific cameras too.
However, any cameras in which you can insert a video tape (camcorders,...) will NOT work with coriander. These cameras record compressed DV video on the tape, while the IIDC specify uncompressed, on-the-fly video flows.
Here are some key features of "Coriander":
change picture mode and format.
control of Auto/man/one-push-auto, on/off, value and absolute value for all standard features
memory channel save/load
full Format_7 control
control of the external trigger
What's New in This Release:
This version is a big sync with the latest developments in libdc1394-2.
RAW capture has been removed (since it has also been removed from libdc1394-2).
