set countdown to zero

Postby Jobi » Fri Sep 13, 2019 3:51 am

Hi, me again :lol:

if i set the countdown to zero it goes back to 2 seconds.

i have a bluetooth remote to trigger the iPad so i don't need any countdown at all. because i found out with my previous diy photobooth i it was a real blast for the audience to take a photos like that. most people cant hold a really cool pose for 3 seconds and then the camera always captures the brief moment after they let go of their pose :(

Hi,
At the moment Wifibooth does not let you immediately take a photo when pressing the button, because it expects people to want a few seconds to get ready.

If you have a camera that supports direct triggering like the Canon xxD line (ie. 80D), you can use that from the gallery screen.

Otherwise, I could build in a setting for this, but, whether you are able to do this depends on which camera you have.
I could try building in something into a beta build in the future for this if you want to try it out.
Please write a review for Wifibooth on the Apple App store! Indie developers like me really need people like you to review their apps. Instructions on how to write a review: http://goo.gl/w8NsDI.

Hmm, not sure how the M6 will work - it needs liveview on all the time...
Will schedule this tentatively to look at in october...

Hey Jobi
OK, I built what you asked for: it's now possible to have zero countdown.
I'm sending you a PM with an invite to the beta: please try it out with your M6 and let me know if it works!
