GPHOTO Olympus E-M1 issue was created by Harry1969

Hello, I have recently been trying to configure Astroberry with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 without success. The Astroberry GPHOTO driver recognises the camera as an E-M1 but when I try to take a test exposure it then ignores the exposure time I have set and instead opens and closes the shutter in less than 1 second. I have tried both Live Bulb and Live Time modes to no avail. Has anyone succeeded in getting this camera working with Astroberry/INDI?

Thanks

Harry

I have met the exact same issue when I used Astroberry with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 at first. After some test, I found after gphoto taking the FIRST image, the camera's mode changed to M and the exporsure was set to 1 sec automatically. however, the good news is that when I change the camera back to bulb mode by hand, all gphoto subsequent captures will be fine.

Hope this is your case too.
