FOR CAMERA HELP: See our support page here.

This is a 5 megapixel (2592 x 1944) USB camera, configured by the manufacturer for use with LightBurn, and will work equally well on Windows or Mac systems. The camera uses a CMOS sensor, with automatic exposure and white balance, and a manually focused lens.

Each camera comes with a lens of your choosing, and a 3.2 meter (10 foot) USB cable

Note that these cameras are exactly as shown, with no enclosure. You will need to produce an enclosure or mount.  These fit our small camera mount, which you can purchase from us.

In order to determine the minimum height for the camera to see your whole laser area, use the Camera Selection Help option in the Help menu in LightBurn.  It will tell you the minimum mounting height to see the entire area of your laser, given the size of it.

Note that there will always be a bit of image loss from un-distorting the image, so you should always err slightly toward having a little extra room.

Documentation for setting up and using the camera can be found here: https://lightburnsoftware.github.io/NewDocs/UsingACamera.html

If you are using Windows 7, you might need to install a driver for the camera, which you can find here: https://forum.lightburnsoftware.com/t/windows-7-drivers-for-lightburn-camera/9658
