seismograph function

Postby NN101583UL3 » Fri Jun 09, 2017 9:29 am

We have just purchased an XF camera with this function. It is my understanding that it works by waiting until all vibration has ceased after pressing the shutter release button, before taking the shot. I have vibration detect set to auto and delay set to 4 sec but the camera will instantly take the shot when the shutter release is pressed even when I introduce lots of vibration.
Am I missing some setting to get this to work or is there something wrong?
Anyone had this problem?

The XF will take the shot as soon as there is no vibration.
However when the timer (you set number of seconds) times out, it will take the shot anyway.

This is a bit confusing and not ideal so we are working on a solution for this in a upcoming firmware release.

Also, make sure you have set the drive mode of the camera to Vibration... sounds like you have the backend settings enabled, but are still in the normal drive mode.
