Re: Holy Grail Fails to download JPEG

Hi Hubaiz, Thanks for clarifying the settings. Unfortunately despite modifying the Intervolometer the app still refuses after a short while to download anymore of the small Jpegs. To do so and auto update exposure I have to stop then restart the time-lapse. This is the case even with an exposure of ...

Re: Holy Grail Fails to download JPEG

Hi again, Ive finally managed to do some controlled tests. Ive researched and modified (cutting the wire for pre focus) in my Intervolometer. It's downloading previews ok now and Ive set the app in holy grail mode. I controlled light ambient by dimming a window blind. When I darken the scene the app...

Re: Holy Grail Fails to download JPEG

Hi ok I’ll test that today.
Is there any advise how to check if the intervolometer is trying to get camera to focus?
Maybe I could use the canon built in intervolometer and see if that causes the issue.
Regards Simon

Re: Holy Grail Fails to download JPEG

Hi Again Hubaiz, Following on from my previous post I finally managed to find time to go out and shoot a day to night Time-Lapse again. This time I took your advise and kept the app open.

Re: Holy Grail Fails to download JPEG

Hi do you think this may have caused an issue with the app and the problem with jpegs not downloading?

Re: Holy Grail Fails to download JPEG

Hi again and thanks for your ongoing support. Ive had the remote for a while but I've been and re read through the manual and there is nothing to suggest the unit effects any focussing at all. With this in mind I'm still a little stumped. Does the app need to be constantly running in the foreground ...

Re: Holy Grail Fails to download JPEG

Hi it’s a basic intervolometer Yongnuo MC-36b
The lens is set to manual and don’t think this product controls focus.

Re: Holy Grail Fails to download JPEG

I’m shooting with canon 5d mk4 the exposure started at 1/20th down to around 1/2 second with interval of 4 sec.
Apart from it losing connection a couple of times and 4 frames where it changed the aperture to f 2.8 for some reason and blowing out the exposure the final Time-Lapse looks great.
