Controlled Delay

Hi Guys,

It would be great if you could add a controlled delay per camera, so that a cameras could fire in a controlled sequence.

Further to this, it would be great if you could connect and control Studio flash heads and again assign a delay. Some Flash models now have USB interface. For those that don't perhaps I could make something to convert USB to Sync.

I could see the above functionality being extremely useful and well within the bounds of the smartshooters brief.

This kind of custom and automated camera control is already possible with Smart Shooter, as it can load and run custom scripts.

With in a script, you can effectively program the command that are sent to the cameras. Its built on top of the TCL programming language. In fact the built in functionality for timelapse, HDR bracketting etc, are all just implemented as scripts.

Heres are script API docs, If you interested:

Writing such a script requires knowledge of programming, and I don't expect most users to be able to do this.

So I'm happy to help out with that.
