    I have purchased the Ballon mapping kit (already have a kite) and would like to set the automatic shooting (eg very 2 seconds) of the Prograce WP200 mini-camera, but I cannot find how to do it. There is a 2s timer that can be set, but it requires to press the shutter key (either on the camera or its remote control), what obviously cannot serve when the kit is 100+ meters high.

    Hello, did you purchase the camera from us?

    Is this a question? Click here to post it to the Questions page.

    We have the same problem: we bought a camera from Publiclab store (Drograce WP200) but we are not able to set it to continuous mode. Triggering the camera as @liz suggests just makes one single photo. In the instructions they don't say anything about continuos or timelapse mode (nor in the menu). Ideas?

    Hi @Pablo sorry for any trouble! I do not have the camera physically in front of me, but there is a "timelapse" mode in the settings, i'm guessing it probably requires multiple presses of the Mode button to put it onto that setting -- s-l1600.jpg i bet it is very hard to find.

    I think @hagitkeysar was asking about this over the weekend as well. Is there possibly some bug with recent versions of this Drograce WP200 camera?

    @hagitkeysar and me are talking about the very same camera.

    It didn't look like a bug. The camera worked as described in its manual [which I can't find online, Drograce WP200] with three modes: photo, video and car. It didn't have time-lapse mode.

    We found the burst option inside the photo mode, but it only takes 3 images each time.


    OK, I think there's been some confusion over camera models on our end. I'll check on this and we can figure out what to do next. I'll reach out over email, thanks!

    The model I received had no timelapse mode, so I bought one that does have this feature (https://fr.tectectec.com/products/camera-xpro2/)
