camera settings

Why does “liveview shutter” change the actual shutter speed when it takes the photo?

If you unplug the camera from USB and go back into the physical camera settings, it is set to whatever you set inside sparkbooth for liveview shutter, not photo shutter.

You cannot change it while running the program to your actual shutter speed, or you lose liveview.

This makes me believe that the photos are being shot in the wrong shutter speed.

    Additionally, is it possible to have full camera adjustment within sparkbooth similar to some of the other remote control programs?

    When changing the F stop for is cumbersome to have to change it on the camera and go back and fourth each time, when knowing that it is available as internal change with other software.

    You say "similar to some of the other remote control programs"

    What other remote control programs are you referring to?

    DSLR Remote pro comes to mind right away.

    You can change all of the camera settings that you can directly on a camera, on screen in the software.

    Sparkbooth DSLR will change the shutter speed if you have the brighten live
    view setting enabled. It will change shutter speed to the live view tv when
    it starts the live view, and the photo tv when it is about to take a photo.
    It does not change any other settings.

    Well Alex,

    I hope you don't take my reply here as being rude
    ...This is what I would do... if other software has features that I need/must have
    then that would be a software I would have ...
    not all software has all the same features and
    having 1 or 2 different software's is what many
    photo booth companies do...

    My 2 cents on this topic...

    Hi John,
    I thought that was how it functioned, however when tweaking the camera
    settings in sparkbooth, certain live view shutter speeds can make the photo
    entirely that seems like it may be a bug in the software that
    defaults to the liveview shutter and doesn’t actually switch to the photo
    shutter setting.

    I can provide a video of this if it’s not easy to understand through text.
    Basically...certain live view shutter speeds set in sparkbooth produce an
    all black photo (or partially black), which leads me to believe that the
    software is not actually utilizing the “photo shutter” setting.

    Or see
