Is there a way to stop or pause the timer countdown in between shots? Giving my customers enough time to change props to get ready for the next shot without having to be rushed?

    Sorry, there is no way to do that. But you can increase the delay in
    between shots (Settings > Countdown > Shot Delay) or use the trigger
    feature
    (See https://youtu.be/LIxJK255mMU)

    Thank you, the trigger function is cool, maybe you can update the software to have a short 3,2,1 countdown on the trigger function. That would be awesome!

    ???? Maybe I misunderstood what you are saying

    The TRIGGER is instant, why would you need
    a count down on the trigger???

    When you hit the button/space bar,,,
    the Camera is triggered to take the shot,
    there would be no count down (?)

    The short countdown on the trigger would help the customer acknowledge and prepare them To pose for the shot. Just a suggestion. If I were to press the space bar I would have to verbally tell them myself to get ready 3,2, and 1 so they can pose for the picture. Do I make sense? Do you understand what I’m trying to say?

    I totally understand what you are trying to say
    but the TRIGER is for Instant shots...
    the normal count down is for counting down.

    The reason we added the trigger is to take photos
    spontaneously when the shot is right, like a photographer.
    Not to have a countdown...

    If the attendant is going to manually trigger, the attendant can say the
    countdown out loud and then trigger the photo.
