PoseCamera without user input
First off, really quickly, I absolutely adore the program, it is absolutely incredible, I have been having such fun with it, it is really intuitive to use and the documentation is superb!
To my question, I have found a lot of use cases where PoseCamera is fantastic for ensuring compliance with tasks, but I don't like the fact that you have to confirm the photo and can retake it, both for the fact that the photo can be redone as many times as needed, and also that it requires user input, requiring you to interact with the program.
My suggestion would be an additional camera command that can be triggered on demand and without forewarning, like PoseCamera, but takes a single photo without asking you to confirm it, like PointCamera. I hope that can be possible!
The first situation you describe, is exactly what is the reason for the way PoseCamera is constructed. Otherwise it would be too easy for the sub to "by mistake" not get the device into the picture. As it is now, that is not an excuse, as it would force the sub to pose again. And if it took two minutes to say yes or no to the picture, I am sure that the controller would react. The same if it was clear from the rejected pictures that the sub hasn't even tried.
As for the second situation, I see your point. I have put in the wish list to be able to trigger a picture here and now.
As for the workaround. As long as the interval is shorter than the time each pose is active, you are relatively safe. The picture may not be taken at the end, but the sub will not know when it is taken. And there may be more than one picture of each pose.
The newest version, 4.3.17, have a new instruction called "Snapshot=1" that can be used to take a picture without any user action.
