I use (as you may still know) version 1.81. for my IXUS 860.
If I use standard SDM 1.81 (downloaded form http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/sdm/index.htm
) I face a problem:
Under menu Stereo->Synchronisation I enabled 'Enable synch' and 'Enable synch delay'.
If I take a photo using the USB switch everything is fine.
But if I use the built in shutter-button, take a photo, then synch settings get disabled again.
That means under menu Stereo->Synchronisation 'Enable synch' was disabled!?!
And in the camera, which is set as 'left camera' also 'Enable synch delay' was disabled!?!
Also on SDM info bar (the one which is blue on right cam and red on left cam, which shows DIRECT: Zoom 55 F Synch 0.000), does not show the SYNCH information anymore.
So taking a photo witout USB switch (e.g. if I don't want to take a stereo photo) makes it necessary to re-enable this settings again.
Since I want to hard-wire my cams (to get rid of the external USB switch) it is very annoying to enable synch settings after each photo I take.
What I am doing wrongly? Is it a bug or a feature?
By the way, this happens also with 1.80.
Thanks for information,
