BYE 3.1.11 Premium missing shutter speeds in Preview mode

Question

When I am connected to my camera with BYE 3.1.11 all the correct shutter speed options are displayed in the Shutter drop down of the Capture Plan Center. However, on the Preview screen the only option in the Shutter dropdown is BULB.

I tried deleting the cache data and restarting BYE. I also connected BYE to re-read the camera's shutter speeds before returning to the Preview screen to look at the dropdown.

Any thoughts?

Odd, I get the same thing... and for the ISO pull down as well... which means it is a bit more general.  I'll take a look now.

Thanks

I downloaded 3.1.12 RC4 and I still have the reported issue.

More info...If I open BYE and go directly into Preview I see only BULB for Shutter and 100/400/8001600 for ISO. If I connect the camera and go to Imaging, both dropdown lists are fully populated. If I disconnect and go back to Preview, the lists do not even expand when I click on the arrow buttons, but Shutter displays BULB and ISO displays 1600.

Well that was fun.  Looks like a few events were no longer being fired in the proper sequence.  This was probably introduced when I added the 100 plan items to that control.

Try RC5... like developers like to say sometimes... It works on my machine :)

Sorry, but RC5 did not fix what I was seeing. Still the same behavior.

What, it really works on my machine with RC5.  Let me download and install from the website and try that.

Hi Rick,

Just download RC5 and it works.  This is the expected behavior.

1) Start BYE and go to preview

  • Shutter => BULB only
  • ISO => 100, 400, 800, 1600

2) Then connect the camera

  • Shutter => All shutters available for the connected camera
  • ISO => All ISOs available for the connected camera

3) Then disconnect the camera

  • Shutter => BULB only
  • ISO => 100, 400, 800, 1600

If you want all shutters and ISO from the connected camera you need to load a plan that was saved when the camera was connected.

4) Then start BYE and go to preview and load that plan.

  • Shutter => All shutters available when the camera was connected and plan saved.
  • ISO => All ISOs available when the camera was connected and plan saved.

Can you confirm this with RC5?

With RC5,

Step 1) works as you said

Step 2) works as you said

At Step 3) BULB shows for the Shutter, but the list does not drop down. I expect a dropdown list with only BULB, based on how a combobox normally works.

Then I connect the camera and create a plan with 2 rows... The Save link for the capture plan is disabled, so unable to save it.

Yes, save is disabled because this 'saved plan' has no name yet because it has not been saved, so only 'save as...' is available so you can give it a name.

The 'save' link is only available once you have loaded a plan (edit: or have save it at least once using save as...).  Save will re-save the new setting under the same plan name when you loaded it.

I'll check the pull down not showing in step #3.

Thanks again,

Okay, I've fixed the pull down, it is now showing in step #3.  I'll upload RC6 later today.

Yes, it works as you expect. Loading a saved plan in Preview mode fully populates the dropdowns for Shutter and ISO.

I don't know how I was able to ignore the "Save As" link.  Too much beer on a Saturday evening, I guess.

LOL, hey... cold beer likes me too :)
