    How to use MECHA for HDR? Please share your experience.

    Please share usage scenario of various delay functions in MECHA.
    Some users have difficult in using MECHA for HDR bracketings. I am going to make a guide on this. It will be a great help to see how MECHA is used in real life.

The problem is that the Mecha rotates to the next position while the shutter is still taking the first 3 brackets. What I need is for the Mecha to move on AFTER the brackets are taken. Can you advise what settings I should have to do this and does it require a 3.5 mm 4 pole plug cable connected from the camera to the hot shoe?
    I report my experience with Mecha.
    My gear is a Sony A7rII camera + Sony 24mm F1.4 GM lens. For a complete 360 HDRI dome it takes 3 rows of 12 angles/30 increments (5 brackets at 2ev per angle) plus Zenith and Nadir.
    I set my Mecha with a E timer of 3sec. This is the time that my camera takes to shoot 5ev2 brackets and the write to SD. 3sec is also valid for 5ev3 that i use in some cases.
    I also use other times such as A and B, when i need to set multiple exposure presets.

    Hope this helps.

    Are you treating image sequence as one trigger and using continuous advance mode? You can simply use a longer exposure delay or use a longer A delay.

    One instance that we experienced was the timing speed between the bracketed shots, and how to easily set those times up.
