Can you do remote sync in continuous mode at over 1 shot per second?Can you do remote sync in continuous mode with a script holding the shutter down and processing the photos?
I tested the last script of lapser.The camera shoot every 1100ms without checking the USB port, it just shoot continuously...
The code in reply #400 or #404?
--[[@title USBLapse@param m Max Interval (msec)@default m -1--]]--MUST BE IN CONTINUOUS MODEif(m<0)then m=1234567890 end -- 2 week intervalset_shot_interval(m,0) --Maximum interval, no wait for scriptnshot=1print("Holding shoot_full")print("Press <menu> to exit")press("shoot_full") -- continuous moderepeat repeat sleep(10) until get_shot_ready() print(nshot,get_shot_data(4)) -- time from last shutter open to this shutter open nshot=nshot+1 repeat sleep(10) until get_usb_power(1)==1 repeat sleep(10) until get_usb_power(1)==0 if(is_pressed("menu"))then break end set_shot_interval(-1) --takes one shot immediatelyuntil false
Now it works!!! 1800ms 5V - 200ms 0V
If you're writing a log file, i.e. print_screen(1), the script will sometimes block and take a long time. This is because the camera is also saving large picture files at the same time. You can use print(...) to show data on the screen, but don't save it in a log file or you might miss the pulse from the Arduino.
If you're using an external battery in continuous mode and the external power shuts down, all the pictures will be lost. This doesn't happen with an internal battery shutdown, or in single shot mode.
How can i connect an external battery to the camera?
Another important question, if i want to use the same script on others canon cameras how can i implement your functions on them? Can you explain the process to build the custom firmware?
