A new idea on a module
« on: April 25, 2021, 07:12:46 AM »
Hello, I am thinking if there is a module that automatically set focus distance to infinity so that the external focusing lens (50 1.8 stm, 40 2.8 stm, 85 f1.2 for example) will be safe for the older model cameras. (Just like what 6D2 or newer model does, there is a opinion in the canon menu that set the focus distance to infinity while sleep and power off)

Anybody think this is a good idea or there is one of these module exist already?

First: There is a department for this -> Feature requests.
But don't mind that. Visit Scripting corner first and explore Garry's script repository, esp. DOFIS.
I think there may be a problem with executing scripts at shutdown/sleep but IANAP.

Yes, ArcziPL mentioned that, thank you for the reminder.

And if you ask me, I got rid of these "problematic" lenses, as I didn't like them anyway (EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM & EF 50mm f/1.4 USM).

well...some of them are great actually, 85 f1.2 is a great example
