Have a new DMK 51 mono and been trying it out today, but I can only get it to run at 8 FPS,not at the max 12 FPS, I am using a USB 3 port on a win8 PC, how can I get it to run at the max frame rate.

According to the TIS support forum, this is due to running a USB2 camera under a USB3 connection.
You need to find a USB2 socket on your computer.
