The 20D is older than the 30D. It uses a different SDK (I need to install original Canon drivers to use DSLR Remote Pro, and I think you don't).

So, there is a problem with DSLR Remote Test. I suggest you ask Chris to find the issue, as it will allow you to use the plugin, and solve your problems...

Andrew, I agree this way of using DSLR Remote Pro is not the best one. I plan to re-write the plugin, using the same way jeongyun did with gphoto2, in the GphotoBracket plugin.

Hi guys

problems solved. chris breeze just replied:

To adjust the shutter speed it needs to be set to Tv or M, for the aperture it needs to be Av or M and for expcomp is needs to be P, Tv or Av.

I normally shoot my panos with manual exposure, so i had my camera on manual.

so frederic this begs another question, is there any possibility of modifying the DSLRRemote plugin, to let the user choose which parameter is varied? I normally fix the aperture and vary the shutter speed with bracketing so that I get a consistent depth of field. this was, i can set it on manual and have it vary the shutter speed, so i get my fixed exposure and consistent dof

regards

Mark

Cool you found the problem!

But I don't understand your question: the current version of the plugin just use the exposure bias param (-x) to adjust the exposure while bracketing. Which param is going to change depends on the settings of your camera. If you use the T mode, then you set the time value, and the camera changes the aperture; using the Av mode, you set the aperture, and the camera changes the time value.

Is it not what you want to do?

Hi frederic

exposure bias (-x) only works in av or tv mode. i want to use manual in order to get consistent exposure for the whole pano. if i use av, -x will adjust the shutter to give me a consistent dof, BUT the exposure will change (based on the metering) on every shot, because there is no exposure lock (the reason I use manual). av and tv fix only one parameter, the other is chaged based on metering. so my exposure bias 0 for 1 frame may give 1/100th sec for one frame, but when the head rotates to a darker area it may drop to 1/25th. In this situation, I would choose around 1/80th as my manual exposure.

Do you use av or tv for your panos? I've always found manual to give best stitched results (less banding)

I can continue to use the generic plugin and add a parameter for the start exposure and then number of shots. So for example on my camera -s 36 = 1/125th. If I pass my script 3 shots and 2 for the bracket amount, i can shoot 3 frames:

1/500th (-s 42 -2)
1/125th (-s 36 0)
1/30th (-s 30+2)

I could also pass it 5 as the number of shots and 1 as the bracket amount, then i would call dslrremotetest 5 times:

1/500th (-s 42 -2)
1/250th (-s 39 -1)
1/125th (-s 36 0)
1/125th (-s 33 +1)
1/30th (-s 30 +2)

It would be really nice to be able to do this from the plug-in. You'd basically need an option to set which a parameter would be varied (Aperture, Time, or Exp Comp) and one to set the exposure steps size (1/3, 1/2, etc.).

Because the camera won't support -x in manual mode, you need to specifically set the shutter and aperture to vary the exposure. You can't give an offset, so you need to send explicit values. This means the plug-in would need to know the relationship between -s and -a integer values and real camera settings e.g. (1/125th = 36, f/11 = 12) and you need to be able to set the shutter and aperture for offset 0.

So if I was starting at 1/125th and f/11 and bracketing +/-2 with a fixed aperture (1/3 steps), PW would send

0: -s 36, -a12 (1/125)
+2: -s 30, -a12 (1/30)
-2: -s 42, -a12 (1/500)

If you're interested in adding something like this to dslrremote plug-in, i'd be happy to write a more detailed spec and do all the testing. I could probably supply a working vbscript as an example too.

Regards

Mark

Ok, I understand, now. This is what I plan to do for this plugin... One day :rolleyes:

In fact, look at the GphotoBracket plugin: it works this way (it only simulated the Av mode with a manual exposure; the other way is missing). I don't know if gphoto2 is available under windows...

I don't think so...if it is I've never found it.

Hi, Just downloaded V 2.1.19 and trying out the latest DSLR Remote plugin. Windows XP on asus eee pc 4 gb ram + 4 gb extra card.
Papy installed ok and after settin up plugins and connections and starting DSLR remote the first time on a test shot the camere fired 3 times. Assuming that I had the camera set for bracketing I checked the camera and plugin configuration. I find thatin the config tab > dslr remote Pro > configure - user exposure compensation list - If I change the setting I get "Failed" when I take the shot. How do you change this setting.

I need the log showing the shooting sequence...

In teh exposure compensation list, you should at least have a value (0). Default is '-2, 0, +2'. Don't forget to also set the camera exposure compensation list to the value matching your settings...

Thanks frederic, I tried zero and after reboot everything worked. Sorry for the original post. wasn't sure of the syntax for the bracket sequence.

Pity I went AWOL shortly after you started this plugin. You've done a great job on this one. Using the plugin for bracketing as opposed to using a batch file gives you an entry in the data file for every shot. Given the limitations of the the command line utility this plugin is very practical. There's only one minor error... the paths to the output folders use / instead of \ but it's not something people need to change often.

It's nice watching DSLR Remote maximised as the shots come through with PW running behind it :)
