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:
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!
