Suggestion - restore camera settings on disconnect



I have a suggestion for something I'd really like to see added to BYE - restore the camera setting on disconnect. I don't use BYE often, and when I do its just for focus. Three times now I have had imaging sessions ruined because I didn't realize that BYE had changed the camera from shooting RAW to shooting small JPGs. I always shoot RAW, so I never change the setting. Twice I've had astro sessions ruined because I forgot to reset the camera to RAW and one time I had a non-astro shoot a few days later ruined because I had used BYE earlier. It seems to me that the polite thing to do is return things to the way you found them.

Not a bad suggestion. You should add a post to the Suggestion Box Forum to that affect. Of course, it all depends on BYE being able to do a normal disconnect from the camera. It would not be possible to restore settings if a session ended because the camera shut down due to a low battery or a sudden disconnect. There are many more occurrences that would prevent BYE from restoring camera settings, so any solution would not be fool-proof.

I assume that you are using an interval timer for your captures, but a workaround is obviously to use BYE for your captures. You can set BYE to capture raw images, and you can monitor and review the images while you are capturing. You can also save the images to the memory card in the camera.

BYE always takes images from Frame & Focus as small JPG files. This is not currently changeable. So another workaround is to set BYE to shoot RAW images and then take one image from the Imaging tab before disconnecting.
