    Is need for the PC sync cable from Camera(or adapter) plugged in AUX port of MECHA.
    Then MECHA can wait for the shutter to be closed, thus it can automatically extend the E: delay to be as long as the shutter is open in camera.
    1. Mecha it possible.
    2. Mecha it easy.
    3. Mecha team up.

      But I guess this wouldn't work, if camera is in HDR mode doing 3, 5, 7 ... exposures, as the PC sync would give its signal with each of the exposures and MECHA would proceed with the first signal received.

        For this scenario, is need to change [1 IMG] to [3 IMG], [5 IMG], [7 IMG] .. in MECHA as well.
        and in camera is need to have such settings to require 3,5,7.. press of shutter button i.e.one press for each image.
        1. Mecha it possible.
        2. Mecha it easy.
        3. Mecha team up.

          ah ok, [3 IMG], [5 IMG], [7 IMG] .. I forget about this possibility as I'm used to using the HDR auto bracketing in camera. I will experiment with this.

          Thank you

            About shutter confirmation, in which MECHA was camera connected?

            ATM, the shutter confirmation on DAC works only if camera is connected to H MECHA,
            if was connected to H MECHA and MECHA didn't work,
            please give more info about camera settings, exposure time, if bracketing used or not, so on..
            I had PC sync cable and the Shutter Release cable connected to the V MECHA. I will try with them both on the H MECHA. Where is it explained where they should be connected?

              Working on adding shutter confirmation via V MECHA in a FW update today.
              Until then please connect PC sync to H MECHA if possible, it should work.

              The shutter release cable can be on either MECHA, slightly better performance if plugged in H MECHA, though.

                I retested with both cables connected to the H MECHA and it worked.

                  Also, the script ends the pano after the 61st shot. I changed the end of the script to ",8=0". It then takes 60 shots but does not return to the starting position. How can I fix that please?

                    I had also such a problem with a script only doing one shot less than expected.

                    Do you have [rewind] activated instead of [wait]?

                      Sorry, my fault, was a bit late, maybe I was tired.

                      as the last row is consist of 9 shots only
                      this part was wrong

                      14=-72,=_40,9=0

                      it tells that at the 14 position from previous the pitch became -72, then the next position is at 40 deg yaw, so as we already have 2 shots this far, only 7 remains for the last row,
                      it should be then corrected with

                      14=-72,=_40,7=,

                      and to return to the start position the "terminator" will be
                      =0_40
                      which mean
                      "go at 0 pitch and another 40 deg of yaw as termination"

                      thus the final and corrected script will be

                      S=0,1=72_0,=_40,8=36,=_25.714, 13=0,14=-36,14=-72,=_40,7=,=0_40

                      Corrected also on server, sorry for any trouble caused.
                      1. Mecha it possible.
                      2. Mecha it easy.

                        It now takes 60 shots but does not return to the starting position. For example, if I use the one that starts at level and 0 yaw, it stops at -72 degrees down and 320 degrees yaw. How can I get it to end at level and 0 yaw and only take 60 shots? This way it is ready for the next shot.

                          Is that happening with [ 62 Shots ] selected?

                            I've tested

                            DAC_35MM_9-14-14-14-9_Level

                            from server and it does 60 shots and returns to starting position.

                              I tested with 60 shots selected. Does that make a difference?

                                ATM this branch of S-Language uses those two extra moves to go from starting position and land to ending position,
                                even if 62 shots are selected the script will trigger shots for only 60 positions.

                                I'll add those two shots internally in the future but this is how it is now.
