Thread: Delay between countdown and actual picture taken

I'm having the same issue as this user in thread "Delay between countdown and actual picture taken".This delay is completely in the camera. I'm not the expert but my buddy explained to me that this camera does some mode switch before taking each picture. Can you build a trigger adjustment so that we can adjust when the photo is actually taken? Make the setting relative to the countdown trigger time so we could set the signal to be sent a half a second pre maturely or whatever is necessary?

    Understand the software ONLY sends a command to the camera to TAKE the photo and it is the camera that has control after that. Using Auto Focus will delay taking the photo because when it receives the command from the software, it now had to focus then take the photo. This is why it is recommended to always use Manual focus.

    If you have a camera that is NOT using auto focus and it is not taking the photo INSTANTLY after the command is send from the software, that is a camera issue that the software does not have any control over.
