Instead of batteries I use an old 4V power adapter for a phone ( "4V/150mA" it says).
Here is the problem: when I trigger power on with my hardware button the camera takes a picture but then pulls the lens back and the text "change the batteries" blinks before all is black. That happens almost every time. I think it is related to how long the power is switched on. If I power on off very quickly no photo is taken, the camera only focuses. Does this sound familiar? Any solution for it?
I notice that I have press the button twice (once to focus, once to shoot) and that the focus press must be timed right. Is there some way around that, like a script, that turns one slight press into the pair of actions focus + shoot?
