ZWO/Panasonic? have already done the calibration (I guess controlled by on-chip registers) and you can dial up any allowable mixture of read noise, dynamic range etc. as per the graphs. And you can control the exposure - should be an interesting optimisation problem. The offset defaults to 21 ADU? in most software.
I assumed that was Glen was referring to may have been similar to what I needed to do with my QHY9&22 which is set the gain and offset as they don't.

Looks different
