Here is i made small modification for C901 camdriver

"Mini Manual Mode (M3) camdriver for C901"

*current mod version = v.4.0

*based on original camdriver V.2.9


change log :

// Change "WB menu" to Manual ISO for Xenon :


this will change ISO only for xenon ON,

* Default = Auto ISO --> ISO 200, 1/8s

* ISO 100 = ISO 100, shutter speed slow (less than 1/8s).

* ISO 200 = ISO 200, shutter speed less than 1/10s

* ISO 320 = ISO 320, shutter speed less than 1/10s

* ISO 400 = ISO 400, shutter speed medium, between 1/30s - 1/40s

bug : Xenon ISO 320 sometimes not working if use flash on bright condition. ISO will set to 200 not 320.


// Change "Effects menu" to "manual menu" :


* OFF = auto mode (this is for changing exposure value)


* WB & Effects :

reduce EV (-0.3 to -2.0) to change white balance.
increase EV (+0.3 to +2.0) to change effects


* Set Sharpness :

EV -0.3 --> minimum sharpness (value = 0)
EV 0.0 --> default sharpness (value = 1)
EV +2.0 --> maximum sharpness (value = 9)


* Set Saturation :

EV -2.0 --> minimum saturation (value = 25)
EV 0.0 --> default saturation (value = 162)
EV +2.0 --> maximum saturation (value = 256)

in original camdriver, default value is 128 (hex 80). in this mod, it is on ev -0.7


* Manual Focus :

first, set "focus" to "infinity"

then, reduce or increase EV to change focus.
EV -2.0 = maximum focus (far distance/infinity)
EV +2.0 = minimum focus (close/makro) --> max makro distance at 8cm.

// Enable Forced Flash for Flash Auto and RER



use "i" key for help



Download (V.4.0) ==> HERE



Update 13 dec 2009 :

M3 Camdriver V.4.1.

change log :
- fix "bestpict bug"
- fix bug when using infinite+xenon ISO (display becomes darker after takes shot).
- add contrast settings to xenon.

Download M3 V.4.1 camdriver --> HERE


Update March 2010 :

@Junz
With this modded driver the manual focus works well? So can we exclude the possibility of a hardware problem? I really hope focusing problem is just software related and an update will bring a well optimized auto-focus.

may be i can.. I've make modded camdriver for K850 and i think C902 camdriver is not so different with K805's. but I'm sorry i don't have C902 for testing, and i don't have enough free time right now

yes. manual focus works. please try it

i found that if we want, we can make manual focus steps works fully for makro/close distance only (more precise). but in this camdriver, i make larger step range for manual focus, so, not only for makro/close distance,but also works for medium distance and infinity.

i see that Yari is capable to record video in VGA with 30-50 fps. so i think C901 should have potential too..

I've try to make VGA rec, but viewfinder become black. also try in CIF res (352x288), viewfinder works well, but still failed to do recording. still don't have enough time to check what's wrong.

but imo, C901 recording capabilities with 800~900 Kbps bitrate is good enough

Yes, manual focus work well.

Jigonx, may be you need java for run the programme.

Some bug, iso for xenon not work well in infinit focus, and after taking pic, the display become darker. Didnt know if any members get this problem too or just me.
