#28 camera options not over Main window

Interface (12)

every time that I need to change my camera settings the camera settings window appears directly in front of the main window. This is not very practical because each time I have to cancel the action, close the camera settings window, the options window and then in the click window switch to drag, move the main window aside and open the options menu and camera settings again.
this is a problem when I want to set brightness because I can't see how much I have to adjust the slider.

    I tried to open the camera settings window providing a specific location without success. The problem is that, on Windows, such window is part of the camera driver (i.e. the behaviour of such window depends on the specific driver).

    Some alternatives might be:

    i) show the main window in a position which wouldn't overlap with the camera settings windows. In my case the camera settings windows always appears in the left half of the screen, so showing the main windows in the right half of the screen might solve the problem, at least in some cases.

    ii) make the options dialogue non-modal, so that you could drag the main window directly.

    What do you think about these two points?
