I think I have come full circle (see my post here http://www.kolor.com/forum/t16296-papywizard-magic-lantern-hdr-problem,please-help
and your reply), I was trying to make a 5 or 7 frame bracketing with ML with my EOS T3i (600D). Daylight, manual mode, manual focus, center speed at 1/125. So am not hitting the 30sec. limit either.
Being a photographer, I am technically challenged (altho, I was very proud after I was able to install Python and Pappywizard on my N810!)
So, now all I want to do is 5/7 bracket, 1ev apart, daylight, manual exposer, manual focus, with N810 and T3i(600D)/MagiLantern. Any information that will help me achive this will be greatly appreciated.
Did yo find out the pulse-values(Pappywizard) from Josef? How important is LiveView mode, as this will be a concern fro battery life.
ItÂ´s quite simple: you need the N810 - or whatever controller - to move the head and to trigger the camera. When the camera gets triggered it starts the brackting sequence. Of course you must set PW to wait until the sequence is finished before it moves the head further.
I suggest to work in live-view-mode: this way the mirror doesenÂ´t move during the sequence - and so you avoid mirror-shaking.
Usually 3 steps of 1,5 or 2 EV are sufficient in most cases. But dealing with bright lights like shooting into the sunset most likely 3 steps are not enough. Here 7 or 9 steps are preferable - the more the better, because the less the EV-differences between the steps the smoother the result.
Just test it! ItÂ´s learning by doing.
