DSLR.Bot v4 new features

Designed for both iPad and iPhone interface.

All settings have been moved directly into DSLR.Bot located at the top right hand corner of the app screen.

DSLR.Bot can now run in the background and in standby mode of the iPhone, however triggering consistency may be interrupted when switching applications.

Stereo audio Bluetooth devices can be used as a wireless link to the camera by pairing the device to the iPhone and plugging the infrared transmitter to the Bluetooth receiver. (devices running iOS 5 may have some Bluetooth compatibility issues)

The remote button on headset adapters can be use to control the main functions of each mode. This is especially useful for Movie mode when wanting to start and stop video recording from a wired button that is conveniently placed on a DSLR rig.

Turn on and off ‘Welcome message and Alerts’. This also applies to low volume alerts, infrared transmitter detection and GPS notifications.

Two new camera signals have been added, JR and Cable.

JR is used for JR remotes that can be attached to camera that don’t natively support IR remote control.

Cable signal is used for directly connecting the iPhone to the camera. A ‘DSLR.Bot release cable adapter’ is required for this to work. Please do not attempt to connect without the use of this specialised adapter as it may result in damaging you camera.

Shoot:

- Improved auto track for GPS.
- GPS Rate Settings
- GPS Load settings

Long Exposure:

- Individually adjustable HH:MM:SS:MS for fine tuning exposures.
- Create time lapse Long Exposures using ‘Repeat’ and ‘Delay’. Once Long Exposure settings are to your liking you can then specify how many times to repeat this Long Exposure and also the delay between sequences.
- Ramping for long exposure time lapses. This is activated once the ‘repeat’ value is greater than 1.
- Ramp the exposure up or down while the sequence is running to adjust for changing light conditions.
- Add extra exposures on the fly by typing in a value in ‘Add Shots’ then pressing ‘Add’.
- Pause the sequence to switch out the lens, memory card or camera battery.

Timelapse:

- Setting the value 0 in the total shots box will make the sequence shoot for infinity.

HDR Bracketing:

- Added ‘interval’ dial for specifying the seconds of delay between each bracket exposure.
- Create time lapse HDR with ‘Repeat’ and ‘Delay’. Once HDR settings are to your liking you can then specify how many times to repeat this HDR sequence and also the delay between sequences.

Movie Mode:

- Configurable ‘Auto Restart Rec’ settings. Set the time for the camera to restart recording to get around the 12 minutes recording limit.
- Adjust the delay in which the camera restarts recording by setting the ‘Delay Auto Restart’ setting. This can be found in DSLR.Bot settings.
