Edgertronic Updates Software to v2.1.7!


The edgertronic affordable high speed professional camera continues it’s software development and occasional fixes to issues that can pop up during extensive use. The new version which is v2.1.7 has a new FTP daemon which allows you to transfer files from the camera to a host computer on the network using the FTP protocol.

The previously released forced monochrome feature for color cameras also makes a solid feature release on this version of the software. This will allow you to use your color camera as a Monochrome version with some benefits but it will not be as good in low light or as detailed as a true Monochrome version of the camera.

The edgertronic camera still occupies the first spot in our affordable high speed camera guide here!  This is a testament of the quality, software support and professional dependability of the camera.
