1) image space - if I were able to save pictures on the computer, I could shoot at the max resolution. The sheer number of frames in a 4 minute film passes the 5,000 mark, hence making it necessary to slash resolution to its lowest, or, pause the process until I can move the images from the card.
2) focusing to the sharp focus and zoom at 4.0x, then stabilising those for the rest of the operation.
Do I have it right when I think that if I were to install the film trigger microswitch to a full USB cable, I could use chdkptp to store images on the computer?
When I have the USB hooked, and I do a half-press to get the focus for the first shot, I get a good photo. Is there a way for this focus to stay put, with no autofocus in between, because the film I scan remains very securely in place, and there is no need for refocusing?
Does exposure need to adjust between shots? If not, I'd suggest keeping half press held down and clicking full press (or using a script to simulate this with the remote) or using continuous mode and shoot hooks. This will give you a faster shooting rate than using AF lock, and the focus won't change between shots.
