suggestion/requests for video mode/live view

Post by tiboine » 19 Jan 2016, 13:07

I am experimenting in using the app as a monitor for filming. But I have some issues with it.

-The camera buttons doesn't work in live view/host mode. mainly the record and autofocus buttons. is it possible to have them active?
- hide UI when recording.
- zebra stripes would be awesome!
- there's a little bit of lag in live view. Is it possible to lower the quality on the video feed to gain smoother live view?
-touch to focus? especially nice when recording.
-add functionality to volume keys on android. to for example start/stop record and focus? programmable buttons would be nice.

Why won't you turn it on in settings ?? (AF after focus point change)

Cannot be done. This is how your camera works.

It would be also useless. Camera sends highly compressed low resolution video. Marking blown highlights would be very unreliable.

Cannot totaly remove delay/lag. Video stream and processing must take some time.
HDMI has similar lag - tested Nikons D5200 and D610 on qDD and HDMI monitor and I couldn't see any difference in delay.
And I use Lenovo A7600 - year old budget 10" tablet.

But when you turn on displaying some filters like focus peaking in qDD - there will be serious delay and frame rate drop.

ah nice. Forgot about that one.

So it isn't possible to use the app as just a "image receiver"? kinda like hdmi out.

But using the volume keys on the phone would be really nice. I know that it is possible. :)

Not sure what you mean. The AF always work. How it works it depends on your settings.
