    Hi, I am still a beginner in the world of Elphel camera’s. The first step to get it working, is I like to use the AXIS commands as it is probably a lot easier to start with. Running a basic command like
    http://myserver/axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi?resolution=320x240&camera=1&compression=25
    should theoretically return a jpg image in the browser. However I get the 500 Server Error message. Can someone point me in the correct direction. Any help would be appreciated.

      hmm... i actually posted with pretty much the same question minutes after you did.  it turns out that on some of my cameras i am able to get images with .../axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi

      with 320x240 i get "error: no correct resolution 320x240"
      similarly with 800x600
      but 1024x768 works fine

      the camera and compression params result in same error.  so implementation is not complete.

      nonetheless, i have one camera that doesn't seem to even listen to the jpg/image.cgi request, returning the same 500 Server Error message you got

        You may need to switch between two alternative APIs (my ccam.cgi and Video API based on Axis one) - these APIs may conflict with each other.

        ccam.cgi-based software is currently better supported. In the 6.5.x version (under development now - available in CVS) FPGA code supports 5MPix sensors (12-bit data),  "gamma" tables are improved and it is possible to get raw images in 16-bit mode (there was a bug in this code for quite some time).
