Now all I need is a camera that can support this

Good to see cross platform compatibility, since I have both mac and windows computers.

Adam - Just checked out your baby on Github. The PentaxWifi.jar is missing from all three beta packages. Is this an oversight or are you working on it right now?

The jar is not in the repo, but it is included in the releases:
Releases PentaxForums/PentaxWifi GitHub

If you're running it from the source, the main file is startGui.java.

Installed latest release. All comm between camera and app seems OK. But when I try to take a picture, I get this:



Reconnect from app identifies K-1 properly.

I get this if the camera is not set to the single frame drive mode.

Argh! Guilty as charged. All good now after changing to single frame. One thing that was in the initial release but is not in the most recent is the autofocus trigger. Will it be reinstated?

It's still there if you right-click the capture button.

I just posted a new version which supports resuming of the capture/download queue even if the camera disconnects in between. Also, the interval shooting timing should now be more stable.

Adam - I have been playing around with the latest version. I am unsure about the interval fumction. Standalone intervalometers have 2 main functions: set number of exposures, and set interval between exposures. I can set the interval but cannot see where to set the number of exposures from the app. Is this something that we have to set on camera? I tried opening the About links on 2nd menu tab but they do not open anything.

It's the interval between the images in the queue (or the delay before image capture if not using the queue). So, it works just like an intervalometer, except instead of setting the number of exposures, you list those exposures explicitly in the queue.

Edit: after giving this some further thought, you are probably either not in the single frame drive mode, or in a shooting mode that does not support the selected settings. You should select M mode if you want to give the software full control, or Tv or Av if you want to rely on exposure compensation.
As you stated, single frame solve it, thanks!

Adam - I was thinking it would be beneficial to separate camera connection from GUI instantiation. There will be times when I may not have my camera with me but I want to set up a queue for an upcoming astro photo session. As it is now, the app loading will fail if there is no existing camera wifi connection.

That would be a cool idea, but the problem is that the current version of the program pulls all the available settings from the camera, so the dropdowns would be pretty meaningless. We can revisit that in the future.

However, the next version will use a plain text format for the save files, so you can make them yourself in notepad or another editor, i.e.

6.3,1/15,1600,0.0
5.6,1/15,1600,0.0
