Thank you David,

I guess I've had several issues, which why I didn't recognize example 9 (AFL) working properly.

When i click on the "remote" button, the
  • screen goes black
  • The ALT  button turns ON
  • The focus orange led flashes
  • After 10 seconds, the picture is taken.

Alternatively, I would have to press the "remote" button the second time (before 10 seconds), or hold it down a little longer (first time) to snap the picture.

How can I avoid the above "timed" delay on the first click?

Here is the test code snippet:

Code: [Select]
@title aClick

rem init focus
  sleep_for 1000
  press "shoot_half"
  sleep_for 1000
  lock_autofocus
  sleep 1000
  "! locked"
  "! 'AFL' top left"
  release "shoot_half"
 
rem shoot without re-focusing
  while (1)
    wait_for_switch_press
    click "shoot_full"
    "snap"
  wend
 end

Just tried it on my A620 and it works fine.

REMEMBER .. if you are in synch mode it wait for switch release or ten second time-out.

To cancel synch mode directly press the shutter button.

Alternatively, put set_sync 0 0 0 0  at start of your code.

(I will add the friendlier 'synch_on' and 'synch_off' in future releases).


Does that work  ?


(in ordinary non-ALT mode, half-press + right button cancels autofocus lock).
