Wondering if you noticed this note in the EMDK release notes. Do you have this version of the OS (or higher)?
Beginning with MC67 BSP v03.46.39, the support for color camera has been provided through the Imager APIs distributed with EMDK. However on the older versions of MC67 BSPs, you must continue to use Microsoft’s DirectShow for capturing images. The Imager APIs distributed with EMDK do not support color camera on the older BSPs.
Ah, thank you Daniel. This might very well be the reason.
Trying to find out which BSP my device is.
In the System Info I can read OEM Version 01.56.04.
Do you know if that is the BSP-version?
In that case the device has to be upgraded with a newer BSP if I interpret the release notes correctly.
That's an OLDER OEM Version / BSP.
03.46.39 and higher OEM versions, the EMDK will likely support the camera.
If it is Older -- then the Microsoft DirectShow API's then need to be used. (And you likely need to disable the Barcode API's to allow the Color Camera to be available.)
