Continuous photo shooting with multiple cameras

Post by NikonD3400DSLR » Fri May 18, 2018 12:39 pm

I have two Nikon D3400 DSLR cameras. I would like the two cameras to take photos continuously every 0.2 seconds until I stop them.

I tried the multi camera feature. It allows the two cameras to take photos at 4 frames per second but there is an option 'Wait seconds:' which has a minimum value of 1 second. In all cases, I have connected the cameras using a USB hub. How I could lower this to 0.25 seconds so that I can take photos continuously at 4 frames per second?

I also came across the Tcl sample script which I changed the numbers below. I used one camera to take photos of digital stopwatch. It takes, for example, 41 frames from 00:00:19:00 to 00:00:31:00. Another instance, it takes 51 frames from 00:00:36:00 to 00:00:51:00.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<dccscript>
<commands>
<loop loopcount="120">
<capture/>
<wait time="0"/>
</loop>
</commands>
</dccscript>

Could you please advise is there any in-built function that allows to take photos at every 0.25 seconds using both cameras at the same time? Or can I modify the Tcl scripting to allow multiple cameras to take photos simultaneously at every 0.25 seconds at regular intervals?

Thank you
