I’m trying to setup a Canon Rebel XSI to take a photo every 15 seconds for an extended period of time, using ofxEdsdk. Each time I run it, after 15 minutes (pretty much the same frame each time), the app freezes on
camera.update(). seems to get stuck on the first
lock() statement. Wonder if it may be related to the threading problems Kyle posted in the issue tracker.
I thought maybe there was a camera setting causing the camera to idle and lose contact with the computer at a certain point but I can’t find anything. Problem occurs both when the camera is on battery power or AC adapter.
Has anyone had any experience with this issue, or can recommend an alternative way? The goal is to be able to take pictures regularly for a few hours at least.
