Programmatically changing image quality setting?
« on: July 18, 2017, 04:47:15 PM »
Apologies if this is an obvious answer.  :)

I'd like to be able to toggle image quality in my script, going from RAW to Fine JPG and back again.  However, this functionality doesn't appear to be exposed in the API.

Is there something I am missing, or even an ugly hack that can be suggested?

Thanks!

See the discussion from https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/753/bad-settings-warning/

(in a nutshell: this is a setting where Canon code doesn't do proper validation, so it may end up saving the setting into some nonvolatile memory, then giving ERR70, even on subsequent boots without ML; these settings are model-specific, therefore we need to whitelist the valid settings for each model)

I was afraid the answer would be something like that.  I don't see a fix in the next 4 weeks.  Maybe for the next eclipse.  :)

Thanks.
