Subject: Upgraded Pylon from 5.0.12 to 5.2.0 

Since there are multiple SURF projects that rely on the cameras:

  1. I moved the new installs Jon made to "new_pylon5" and "new_pypylon". The old installs were moved back to be the default directories.
  2. The bashrc alias for pylon was updated to allow the recording of videos (i.e. it calls the PylonViewerApp from new_pypylon).
  3. There is a script that can grab images at multiple exposures and save 12-bit data as uint16 numpy arrays to an HDF5 file. Right now, it is located at /users/kruthi/scripts/grabHDR.py. We can move this to a better place later, and also improve the script for auto adjusting the exposure time to avoid saturations.

My changes were necessary because the grabHDR.py script was throwing python exceptions, whereas it was running just fine before Jon's changes. We can move the "new_*" dirs to the default once the SURFs are gone.

Let's freeze the camera software config in this state until next week.
