    You can use the After sub-delay when enter the delay in W,B,E,A format (at custom values for delay) like in image where 1,1,1,3 was entered after selecting "custom"

    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.

      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?

        It does what you want, the 3 seconds delay is after the entire set of 2 and is not after each shot.

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

            Hi.
            It's quite some time that no firmware upgrade has released.
            I'm pretty interested now to features 1, 15 and 16 from first page wishlist.
            When are you planning to release these features?

            Thanks
            Raf

              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.

                Hi Dorin, thanks for the quick firmware-fixes, didn't expect you do this on a sunday!


                What i like to see in the far future is to split the E-value into two fields:

                First the formula, like a dropdown with these or more selectable values:


                Single Shot
                =========
                -0+ 1 EV
                -0+ 1 1/3 EV
                -0+ 1 2/3 EV
                -0+ 2 EV
                =========
                +0- 1 EV
                +0- 1 1/3 EV
                +0- 1 2/3 EV
                +0- 2 EV

                Based on the selected entry the Mecha builds the first part of the current E-formula like 2*x or 4*x where „x“ is defined in the next step:

                Here you define the shortest or longest exposure time like displayed in the camera (decimal or fractions) like:

                ...
                1/1600
                1/1200
                1/1250
                1/1000
                1/800
                1/640
                1/500
                1/400
                1/320
                ...

                The Mecha would convert these into decimal values so the user won't have to.

                Splitting the E-value into these two ones would allow saving a preset with the bracketing pattern one mostly works with (so i nearly always work with 3x 2EV or 5x 1 2/3 EV) and to additional select the exposure time that matches the current scene.

                What do you think? Wouldn't this make the process much easier?

                  Just a reminder for anyone reading this,

                  MECHA currently accepts also progressive values for E, like, say:

                  0.5*3 for progressive halved for E resulting in 3, 1.5, 0.75, 0.375 where 0.5 is for having the initial 3 and then the subsequent values
                  and
                  2*0.25 for progressive doubled values E resulting in 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2 where 2 is for doubling the initial 0.25 and then the subsequent values

                  these results are for [4 IMG]

                    • I'd like to improve the interface and would be happy to see a button to the config/update/ring/row/turn-subpage... Currently you have to click on "Ring", what is not very logical. What about naming the button "news" because it mainly leads to the news and firmware-history?
                    • Then it would be great if the /new fetches available firmware-info (when online) to prevent pressing un update and nothing happens. Nick mentioned that before but it was forgotten ...
                    • The Password for the config-dialog is still not mentioned somewhere,neither in the documentation or somewhere else. The connection to the Mecha is already password-protected, why an additional password for the config-dialog? I understand, one can cause immense damage here but imho there's no need for an extra password.
                    • The Configuration-page needs a back-button.
                    • Looks like the option to define the start page is duplicated (once in ring/row at the bottom, second in the config-dialog).
                    • Please add a link to current documentation somewhere, i.e. the news-page.
                    • The known issue (Cannot be shut-down while charging.) is obsolete now, isn't it? You can select "Turn Off" while charging ...
                    • I'd like the option to reverse the arrow-buttons. When pressing the right arrow on the Mecha the device turns to the right, if looking downwards from above, but one expects to return to the left.

                      If you look at the button you expect a direction of rotation, but the device turns in the other direction. This is pretty confusing and although I know exactly that I have to push left to turn right, I keep doing it wrong. Everytime.

                      Currently the buttons don't turn the device in the expected direction. I hope you understand my confusion ... :-)

                      I'll look on these, some needs better English, or some additional explanation like MECHA looks On when power LED is light, and as long as MECHA is charging the power LED is ON , it cannot be turned OFF ATM,
                      Also clicking on FW version number leads to history, but version number is small, as a helper you can also tap on title of UI page which is larger for finger on phones,

                      Again, I'll look on the above once I have more time..


                      1. Mecha it possible.
                      2. Mecha it easy.
                      3. Mecha team up.

                        All conventions left-right are the same in both UI and buttons and means how the camera's view rotates.
                        right = clockwise
                        left = anti-clockwise
                        It also matches the convention for panorama shooting to right or to left

                        Is on my to do list to add a reverse sense option, for upside-down use of MECHA
                        (which is also the case of vertical MECHA in dual axis combo made from two MECHAs)
                        but this have a bit low priority now.

                        Hope there is no confusion about this anymore, as this prevents this hypothetical quote

                        I'll add a note to /new as well, soon , today I hope to finish the export of all the presets in one file.

                          That's is for when MECHA is in STA mode, connected to network other than your phone
                          or when in AP, STA or AP+STA mode even connected to your phone, to prevent the person using MECHA via UI, say an assistant, to make changes in /config

                              I know that already and don't want an email for every update. But when using the Mecha (which is already connected to the internet in my case) it would be great to see: "new firmware available. new functions: bla bla, fixes: bla bla." Then i can decide to update or not.
