Hi everyone

Well, it now works just like in APT with the 1x 5xand 10x live views visible on the laptop screen. Super easy focusing.

Thanks for implementing this. A godsend:)

But neither gphoto nor canon dslr will connect:

My canon 700d works fine on the same computer.

Any ideas?
Cheers and clear skies,

Indi Control panel.
It's an enable/disable toggle under 'options' on the dslr tab.

Hi. Disable BULB. You will then be using exposure durations as programmed into the camera.
