    there is a bug for one shot sequence?
    with "wait" it will make a 360 degree move after image capture.
    with "rewind" it will stay.
    -------------------------------------------------------
    What about feature of optional nadir and/ or zenith shot with custom delays, eg gives 10s to set the camera in nadir position.

      "Why wait is not wait?"

      It is wait.

      For every number of shots settings, Mecha does the selected shot in set for a number of shoots around and turns,
      then either wait or rewind,

      For 1 shoot around the turn is 360 it shot and turns 360 then wait if [wait] is selected.

      If [rewind] is selected then it shot and rewind back, except when is only [1 shoot] selected, no point in doing a full turn then rewind
      without waiting*, Mecha is smart to understand that, if [1 shoot] is selected and [wait], Mecha will understand the
      360 turn and wait and will do that, application for turntable and video, please note that the number of shots in a set can be 0, so it can be set 1 shoot around and 0 shoots in a set and wait, then Mecha will only turn 360 with selected speed.

      So is possible to save a preset to [3] for only 1 turn 360 with 1 shoots around 0 shoots in set and have it turning left or right while you film the new Mecha with phone for FB and show it to your fiends, without need to use phone to send the command, combined with assorted delay, you can press [3] then [<] after the Wake or Before delay is over it will turn to that direction, besides the use as turntable, just an example, of course, has other applications as well.


      Will be covered in user guide. The next feature will be Shutter confirmation.
      After that I'll work exclusively on user guide and the bundled videos.

      *yet, will be an application for that in the future.

          This will be covered in user guide as well, but you can try it if you find easy to understand even now, Mecha offers the possibility for 1 shoot and move on the next position, for wobbling setup this can be more useful if the time until the wobbles settles can vary from position to position,

          At some point in time will be a support for vibration sensor attached to AUX port, and an option to wait until the vibration settles, but even until then you can have a laser pointer pointing down attached to, say hot-shoe use, say, [ 1 x RIGHT] only when the laser spot settles, and you can use gesture mode, to left is one position to left, the same for right, and the gesture up is to shoot, you can learn to use it without looking at phone, say looking at laser spot, or camera shadow , so on. You may need to lock the rotation in the browser or phone's settings.

            What is thje new "custom value"-field good for?

            Comment


            • #21
              There shouldn't be that custom value field there. I'll investigate to see what can cause that. Was the interface altered in some way?

                Like my answer in the other thread: No alternation. Just starting up the Mecha and opening the interface. Tried only STA-mode, not AP but this sould be looking the same ...

                    Please add 4 individual input fields for W, B, E, A with explanation like the other fields and saving the last entered values.

                    If "After" delay, in W,B,E,A is a negative value, that delay will be after each exposure/shutter trigger in set.
                    Also how to save that the interface always start with another interface than A3? Hitting the Save-Button and restart doesn't work. A3 is always loaded by default.

                      I'll make S1-A3 to be saved along default settings with [Save] button in next FW update.
                      W,B,E,A are in developing they will have dedicated and more intuitive controls and selections, of course, until then any W,B,E,A values entered at custom are added in the list temporary, and the W,B,E,A values in use are saved with [Save]..[Save 3] buttons, can be different for for each "Save" button, but only one will be saved in list, if is in use..
                      I'll make that saved W,B,E,A values to be added in list, more than one even if isn't in use, for quick later use in the next FW as well, though it will require a way to delete them as well if aren't needed anymore.
                      Thanks for feedback.

                        A simple non-WiFi remote trigger capability would be very welcome. Just to start the loaded sequence, or stop it if running.
                        One simple possibility is a f/w mode that monitors the aux port for external switch closure -- shd work with any radio remote.

                            For multirow cylindrical panoramas i'd like to manually determine the needed image angle. I'd like to turn the Mecha while watching the live image and when stopping it should say: "11.5 degrees" ....

                                Yes, this works for me, but not perfect...I usually shoot 2 exp. brackets, and don't need the delay before every shot, only once after every move. So #5 would be nice:

                                5. post move delay to damp vibration esp on pole.
