Needs Trigger Countdown Timer

Postby jasonwong » Fri May 06, 2016 2:42 pm

I noticed that you have been able to implement a trigger button on your app. I use it over wifi with a Canon 6D. However it really needs a countdown on screen before the camera takes the photo. This is a deal breaker for now and I hope you can fix this!

Hi Jason
OK. Considering that I cannot implement a live preview, I could just overlay a big white number on the screen. Would that suffice?
Also, would you expect it to start from three -- ie. 3..2..1..<snap> ?

Is the live preview limitation an iOS limitation?

Yes I think that will suffice! I'm sure after a little trial and error you can get a font/design/animation aesthetically pleasing for the countdown.

Hi Jason, the countdown timer feature is now working well in the new version 2.2.1 released today. Please update (it might take 24 hours before your ipad can find the update) and try it out.
