question - count of images in custom bracketing

Post by hrvn10 »

Hi all,
I am new to qDslrDashboard, but managed to connect my canon eos 5d mark iv and use custom bracketing.
The issue is that the count of captured images does not correspond to the count of exposures I set in the dashboard.
For example, with the allowable EV -5 to EV +5 I set 10 overexposed and 10 under exposed so to have 21 images (with .33 step so the max EV will be 3.3 and min will be -3.3). However, the tool generates 11 images with -.3.3, -3, -2.3, -1.7. -1. 0, +1, +1.3, +2, +3. +3.3. So the brackets vary between 0.33 to 1. In fact, the dashboard counts the capturing process from 1 to 21, but I get only 11 jpg images.

Any advice or thought is appreciated...
Thank you

What camera did you use?
What where the exact settings? Maybe a screenshot.

Thank you for your reply. The camera is CANON EOS 5D Mark IV.
Attached the snapshot of settings and the output. The tool counted from 1 to 21 while shooting, but only 11 files are created as shown in the image.

I have this problem with other settings too, ~a half of listed exposures are being captured.

Is the 'Use Canon local storage' option enabled or disable in qDslrDashboard settings.
Eventually contact me with the support email.
