Manual exposure/gain in TTL camera?

by Himoultain on Thu Dec 06, 2012 8:56 am

I would like to use a camera like this 'TTL Serial JPEG Camera with NTSC Video'
http://www.adafruit.com/products/397

in a project, but I would REALLY like to disable to auto exposure, gain, and white balance. Is this possible in this camera, and if not, does anyone know of an alternate in which it IS possible?

THanks

There is an AE control function in the protocol manual, but the description is not very detailed about what exactly it is controlling.
http://www.adafruit.com/datasheets/VC0706protocol.pdf

● When AE attribute is 0:
0:50Hz
1:60Hz
● When AE attribute is 1:
0:automatically step indoor and outdoor
1:forcibly step indoor
● When AE attribute is 2:
0:stop backlight compensation
1:start backlight compensation
