    MECHA - Feature Wish-lists and Suggestions

    It seems that I deleted previous post by mistake. My apology.
    Here is a summary of Feature Wish-lists and Suggestions.
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...KLKgLz850/edit


    MECHA - Feature Wish-lists and Suggestions
    1. "Pause / Resume" Button
    2. shutter switch duration adjustable to support continuous bracketed shots.
    3. camera wake up delay at beginning of pano
    4. preset execution delay when using a button
    5. post move delay to damp vibration esp on pole.
    6. exposure bracketing shutter delay to support - 0 + / + 0 - orders.
    7. Shutter release confirmation
    8. Execution of preset by wired or wireless remote switch
    9. "Help" page
    10. Customizable UI with user defined functions / buttons
    11. IR remote control from Fanotec
    12. Gesture mode menu giving shooter set-up options
    13. Add an API or Add support for camera control via WiFi.
      It would be useful to have an API available to control the mecha via WiFi or have the Mecha able to control a camera via WiFi. This would enable use of cameras that don't support remote control via USB or IR but do support control via a WiFi API.
    14. Gesture mode top menu with 1 button to start full sequence + number of shots taken number of shots left (ie 3 of 4). Button to accurate single shutter release.
    15. Adding a “Home” button that allows the camera to return to 0 position at any point after stopping the rotation.
      A set “Home” button that allows user to set and store the 0 position.
      A “go to “ position button that allows to input a degree position numerically.
      A “step” buttons they allow user to move the rotator by 1 degree increments in either direction for precise alignment of 0 point.
    16. Have buttons to move MECHA continuously and stop at a position by pressing a button. This will make initial positioning easy.
    17. Show battery level at the web interface.

    I'm pretty interested now to features 1, 15 and 16 from first page wishlist.
    When are you planning to release these features?

    Thanks

    Another major update coming soon. And it did take lots of time.
    For 16, please try the gesture feature. That is exactly what you look for.

    Just did some testing; 1,4,1,1 is working well. Thanks.

    Thanks for the response. What I'm looking for is a longish delay (4 seconds) right after the camera stops rotating for each view, but preferably not have that 4 second delay for each bracket shot (entering 4 for B gives me the delay prior to every shot, which I don't need). That's not currently possible, it it?

    That will tell Mecha to wait 3 seconds after each set of 2, the other values for W,B,E are set to 1 in this image but, of course, you can set to 0 or any values you want.

    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.

    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" ....

    One simple possibility is a f/w mode that monitors the aux port for external switch closure -- shd work with any radio remote.
    Yes, Dorin is working on this feature.

    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.

    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.
