I tried to change the timer delay and # of shots in the custom timer mode on the SX40HS and the SX700HS via the set_prop commands to their respective propsets (#5) - it didn't work for both of them. Is it because these propset values are read only ?
I then tried to change these values by scripting "press" commands to follow the manual sequence of setting the timer delay and # of shots, i.e press "timer", press "right", etc. When it came to the press "menu" command, the
menu that was presented was the main camera settings menu, instead of the timer delay, # of shots menu that you would normally get when you do it manually.
Has anybody experienced similar problems like this, and whether you have already found a solution or workaround ? Thanks.
