  • Cable release not triggering camera

    Hi
    I broke my cable release that came with Mecha, got some replacements, sometimes I have to reboot Mecha to have the triggering to work, this is frustrating, I dont know if I am doing something wrong, or cables are faulty, as I have some times to reboot several times.
    Any advise please?

    specify what camera and MECHA FW version you use and if is DAC or single MECHA,
    where the cable is connected to, in H MECHA or V MECHA.?

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

      What camera are you using? How was your cable broken? The force that break the cable may also affect the remote port.

            BTW, now if I try to bracket (3 Shots) some how it takes 2 shots, then 1 after rotating, I encreased the time for B and A, but no avail. if I set IMG to 2, it takes 3 shots, if I set it to 3 it takes 5, the 4 shots, I did not experience this before update,

              Thanks,

              I sent replay on e-mail.
              We'll continue on that channel.
              Chances are to be some delay setting, will be solved, for sure.

                Some update about this

                I review the code yesterday, whole day, I did found some issues regarding N, in script causing two nadirs and Z, causing two Zeniths, and some regarding the Zig-Zag pattern, Z and N resulted yaw shifted, thus the head is not returning in the initial position at the end,
                these issues will be fixed in a FW update today.

                Regarding the number of shots, I still believe is still delay related (for certain camera/card/buffer so on)
                and this will be investigated further.
