Only one option for video mode with new cams?

Hi all,


As many are likely aware, NI's newest version unfortunately rendered our existing IEEE cameras obsolete.


We invested in new cameras (Allied 1800 U-507c) and while the software seems to register the cameras just fine, we are presented only one option for video mode, mono8. 



Does anyone have any ideas on how to remedy?  Maybe it's a driver issue?  Compatibility? 


Thank you.

If you look at the camera in NI MAX, do you see additional pixel formats? 


Generally, the camera should tell IMAQdx which pixel formats it supports in its XML file. You can look at the XML file located in C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\NI-IMAQdx\Data\XML and see what it lists for the Pixel Format enum.
