Intervalometer priority over Trap focus
« on: July 08, 2013, 03:17:14 PM »
I need to use Trap focus to trip the 50D on a bird when it arrives back at it's perch for still images. However I don't won't the camera to fire continuously while the bird is in place as it would wear out the camera. If the Intervalometer could be given priority it would restrict the number of shots to a user defined number. I am sure there are many other applications where this would be useful.

Thanks you for your good work!

Good idea, I was thinking about the same, for a similar scenario but you are right, more possible uses.

The idea is that every time a subject enter into focus , the "focus trap" trigger the intervalometer (ex. Shoot as crazy for 6 pics).
A little more complex is for the logic of what doing after, without manual intervention, if the subject re-enter into focus zone.
Maybe a simple timer to set for how much time ignore it the "trap focus" after the last shootout will just suffice.
