I want to modify an intervalometer script so that the lens retracts after taking a photo, and then opens again in time for the next one. The reason is that I plan to set a camera up at a building site and take a photo every hour for several months, and don't want the lens getting dirty. Are there scripting calls that make this possible?
Just need to give it a clean every now and then.
btw, anyone knows of the longest a camera has been kept on?
fudgey - while the lens of my a570 also retracts (after 20-30 seconds) if I manually switch to playback mode, it doesn't do this if I switch in a script.I have a modified Allbest build that lets me switch modes. There's no doubt the script causes the camera to go into playback mode (if the script presses the left button the lcd displays previously shot pictures) but the lens does not retract, even after a minute.
