Color Guppy shows monochrome image

Guppy color cameras don't support onboard debayering. This is in contrast to other AVT color cameras. Guppies require activating debayering in your image acquisition software on the PC.

To activate debayering in SmartView, go to: Cameras -> Settings -> Settings_dialog. For most applications, 2x2 debayering is a suitable setting.

If you use a third-party software, activate debayering there. Alternatively, use a freeware (for example, dcraw) before the signal is processed by the third-party software.

Within the Vimba viewer, debayering is activated by default. To deactivate it, right-click into the camera image and uncheck "Color Interpolation".
