Hello everybody,

i am currently using the package avt_vimba_camera to use a Manta G609B. My ROS indigo system is running on an Odroid XU3. Had some troubles to get everything running, but now the driver seems to work. I installed it from source and added some needed arm libraries. The only issue is, that the driver will automatically lower the frame rate of the camera depending on the chosen resolution.

    TriggerDelayAbs         : 0 was 0
[ INFO] [1440425646.961006784]: [camera]: Starting continuous image acquisition...(manta)

Even it is automatically tuned down to 8 frames per second, a test showed just a frame rate of around 4 Hz. Is that an issue working on an arm architecture? I had never such a problem an my normal PC. Would appreciate some help with that.

Tested it again with the same launch file (resolution and frame rate, etc.):

PC -> 16 fps Odroid XU3 -> 2 fps

ANSWER: Turns out that the Odroid XU3 has only an fast ethernet controller. Tested it also with an odroid XU4, which is limited by the MTU packet size of 4078.
