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)
