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.
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).
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 --
i bet it is very hard to find.
