As it topic: is there any script command that can be used to retract lens? I like to have my camera in record movie mode and being recording while lens is retracted. So - is there any way?
if (2*b || !2*b) {
    cout<<question
}

Not in record mode.
The lens would retract a certain time after switching to Playback mode using a script command.

That is impossible, the lens is far too near the sensor, it would not produce a usable image.

Imgage not, but sound would be usable:) I need this for turn my camera in pseudo-sound recorder. Even if somehing like very-ugly video will be produced, I can extract the sound from it. But I need to do this with retracted lens:/
