Z7 can't get Auto Holy Grail

Post by flyman »

Hello.

Z7 can connect Huawei mobile through wifi.

After go to LRT, Click on "Capture Sample", but preview shot don't appear, can't get "Auto Holy Grail".

Camera: Nikon Z7
Platform: Android 9.0
Hardware: HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro EMUI 9.0.0

What should I do?

Thanks.

- on you Z7 enable the wireless
- connect your Mate 10 wireless to the Z7 wireless
- start qDslrDashboard and press the 'Nikon wireless' button

- check that your Mate 10 will not automatically change the wireless access point if it detects that there is no internet on current connection
- eventually try and disable your mobile data


For LRTimelapse screen to work:
- be sure that camera is in M mode
- select RAW+JPG capture format (eventually for RAW only enable the 'Allow RAW only in LRTimelapse mode (Nikon)' option in qDslrDashboard settings)
- in qDslrDashboard settings enable the 'Keep screen' option

Thanks for your support.

I did connect the camera to my Mate 10 according to your instructions, but after clicking “Capture Sample”, the preview shot still does not appear.

What are the camera settings, can you make a screenshot of that to (second button from top on right side)
You can scale the UI in qDslrDashboard settings with the 'UI scale factor' controls.

Hi,
as far as I understand the problem, you will not be able to use the Auto Holy Grail with the camera in Host Mode.
Try setting it to Camera Mode and turn off the Dashboard LiveView.

Is image review enabled in qDD settings? Do you get an image displayed after capture (while not in LRTimelapse screen)?
Did you maybe change the default local images folder in qDD settings?
Can you try and uninstall qDslrDashboard and install it again?

Try setting it to Camera Mode and turn off the Dashboard LiveView.
It will work while host mode is enabled and with live view enabled but the external interval timer will not be able to trigger the capture.
On Z6 and Z7 you can disable host while still in live view.
