Sony A7R4 Bad Behavior Shooting Continuously

Post by Ispybadguys »

I just started yesterday trying to use Sharpcap with my Sony Camera. I am using Dougforpres’s ASCOM Driver. When I connect the camera I begins shooting continuously. Seems everything is working but it is using up the flash card as fast as it can. It also doesn’t seem to save any images to the capture folder.

Hi,

that's the way that SharpCap 3.2 works - it was designed for video style cameras that take images all the time and only save them on request.

Use SharpCap 4.0 instead (currently in beta testing). https://www.sharpcap.co.uk/sharpcap/sha ... s/4-0-beta

Turn off 'Live View' in the tool bar before opening the camera - it will then only take images on request (such as when you press the 'Snapshot' button).

hope this helps,

Robin
