Shutter release control
« on: 20 / October / 2009, 10:50:51 »
If I'm using my camera (IXUS  970IS) manually I can press the shutter button half way, then repeatedly press and half release the shutter button. This lets me take a rapid series of pictures without having to re-focus or re-meter

Anyone know how I can write a script to do the same. The initial half press is no problem - press "shoot_half" does the trick. Pressing the shutter fully is also easy - press "shoot_full". But then I'm stuck - how do I get back to the half pressed shutter? - release "shoot_full" is no good as that releases the shutter completely.

Any ideas much appreciated.


PS Problem I'm actually trying to solve is how to speed up this script (which works but has a far lower shooting rate than manually pressing the shutter button)

while 1
    wait_click 1
    if is_key "remote" then shoot

Are you saving using the same format / size when shooting with your script than when shooting manually ?
