The Dual Mode Camera (8001 CIF) is a digital camera device. Similar to a traditional camera device, this digital camera contains a series of lenses able to focus light to generate an image of a captured scene. However, rather than focus the light on a strip of film, it focuses on a semi conductor device that is capable of electronically recording light. After which, a computer will break down the electronic information to digital data. Ever since the introduction of the first digital backs, 3 primary methods for image capture have been used, with each founded on the color filters’ and sensor’s hardware configuration. First is the single shot method that references the amount of time a camera device’s sensor will be exposed to light that passes through a camera’s lens. Systems that use the single shot method utilize either 1 CCD along with a Bayer mosaic filter, or 3 separate sensors for imaging that will be exposed to the same image through the use of a beam splitter.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The second image capture method is the multi-shot. In this method, the sensor will be exposed to an image in a series of 3 or more lens aperture openings. There are several application methods for the multi-shot method. The most widely used method is the utilization of one image sensor with 3 filters being passed in the sensor’s front in a series to attain information on the additive color. Another multi-shot method is the Microscanning that makes use of one CCD along with the Bayer filter that has the sensor chip’s physical location moved to the lens’ focus plane to produce an image with a higher resolution than what the CCD would otherwise allow. The last image capture method is called scanning which functions similar to a desktop scanner device. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Dual Mode Camera (8001 CIF) errors before installing any driver updates.
