Hi
I am trying to connect my Dino-Lite AM2111 digital microscope http://www.dino-lite.eu/index.php/en/component/k2/item/70-am2111 to MATLAB via the Image Acquisition Toolbox. According to the Dino-lite support page http://www.dino-lite.eu/index.php/en/support/faq under 'Software Usage' > 'Can the Dino-Lite be used with 3rd party software?' it states that it is MATLAB compatible, however when I run the command imaqtool, the only camera that shows up as available is my computers webcam. I have the microscope turned on and I can see that it is picking up images from its own dedicated software. What do I have to do to get it talking to MATLAB?
Thanks

To connect, what I did was install support packages. The General OS one seemed to do the trick

Hi Max,
Looking at the datasheet for the camera, it looks like the camera has directshow drivers. You should be able to use this camera after downloading the "OS Generic Support Package".
Once you install it, try:
imaqhwinfo winvideo
That should list the device.
