Interval timer button – with this button you can show/hide the Interval Timer dialog (if the Timer is active the button will be red colored)
Frame count – the desired frame count. If the frame count value is 0 the Timer will run until the user stops it
Interval – the desired interval (minimum interval is 1 second)
Bulb time – the desired bulb time if shutter speed is set to BULB. This field is only visible if shutter speed is set to BULB. NOTE: the BULB Timer will only work on DSLR that support BULB capture
Timer controls – with these buttons you can start/stop/pause/resume the Interval Timer NOTE: if the settings are wrong the Timer will not start (BULB time > interval)
Interval ramping duration – the duration of the interval ramping. The timer will increase/decrease the current interval to the target interval. For now only linear inc/dec is added. NOTE: at the end of the interval ramping the application will set the target interval as the current interval
Interval ramping target interval – the target interval for the interval ramping. The application will gradually increase/decrease the current interval during the interval ramping duration until it reaches the target interval
Interval ramping control – with these buttons you can start/stop the interval ramping function. NOTE: if you stop the interval ramping the application will set the last interval as the current interval
Was doing some testing with qDD and LrTimelapse and here is what came out.
I used the Nikon D7100 with 18-55mm objective and the Canon 650D with 18-55mm objective. Unfortunately I only have 1 battery for each so I needed to change the cameras in the middle of blooming. A cheap Chinese external intervalometer was used with both cameras. For tripod I used the Velbon VS-443D. And of course my Wife’s cactus was used. 🙂
The sequence was capture from 17:30 till 23:00. Next morning it alreadz withered. 🙁
For first part (D7100) qDD was running on my Windows 7 notebook, for second part (650D) qDD was running on Nexus7 (2012).
Slowest shutter speed was set to 15″ and max.ISO to 3200 (but gone only to 1600). Interval was set to 18″. In the second part I made a mistake and closed my notebook that was in the room behind .
Managed to recover from the HDD crash so here is the V0.1.6 with bugfixes.
more fixes to folder selection
fix for the Connection screen ‘Network’ and ‘Wireless’ button long press not working
added time selection dialog for BULB shooting (if 0:0.0 is entered it will run until the users cancels it)
moved the not much used LrTimelapse settings into a settings dialog
added a ‘Capture sample’ button to LrTimelapse screeen (only visible if the ‘Auto Holy Grail’ is not started
added a new method for changing shutter/ISO for Canon users. It can be enabled in the new LrTimelapse settings dialog. Please Canon users test it . I had very good results with the 650D
some fixes for the image review working. qDD will prioritize JPG image review over RAW (probably will add a settings that can change this). RAW will be only displayed if the selected camera image format is set to RAW
some memory leak fixes in the image viewer
fix for a crash that occur while re-sizing the window when an image is displayed
added media playback controls
probably there are some more small fixes that I can’t remember
I also detected an error in the ddserver code that lead to connection break (USB and wireless to). I will publish later today or tomorrow a new MR3040 firmware and also a new method for updating the ddserver package on the MR3040 without flashing (this will only work if the MR3040 already has the V0.2-12 ddserver version)
