There is an SDK for the camera with compiled examples. For a really quick image grab from the command line, use the following:

/opt/Vimba_2_1/VimbaC/Examples/Bin/x86_64bit/SynchronousGrab

This will produce a BMP image. We should probably recompile the C code to produce a 16-bit TIFF image.

I installed the Maku Gigabit CCD camera driver software on the hws-ws machine. The camera viewer can be opened from the terminal (from any directory) with the command

$ZimbaViewer

and there is also a shortcut icon on the desktop. The camera is ocurrently on the subnet at 10.0.1.157 and is configured to get its IP via DHCP. We can assign it a static IP if we'd like to keep it on the network permanently.

I left the camera mounted on the CO2 laser table. It's connected and ready to use.
