Windows Remote Shutter Release HOWTO

September 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I explained before how my remote shutter release script was actually redundant, because Windows has a built in feature that does this. Of course I did then go forward and make the self-portrait script which does do something more useful, remote shutter release combined with immediate download and viewing, but the original idea of a simple remote shutter is still useful.

So I thought a better explanation of how that Windows feature works might help, and it’s good practice for me making videos as well:

Via YouTube:

Via Vimeo:

Having found the RAW/JPG limitation though I’ll be taking a look to see if I can script my way around that.  Stay tuned!

    i never go to youtube so it would be nice to download an avi to see what you mean.

    ps: no adobe reader, flash player, and no youtube means never having to worry about virus or rootkits, so im happy 🙂
