Multicamera: Writing to separate folders

Post by seabirds » Sun Jul 21, 2019 9:36 pm

Hi,

I'm using digiCamControl to interface with 3 Canon EOS 5DSLR's. The cameras are triggered by an external intervalometer and are simultaneously taking photos every 3 seconds for hours, so it's a large volume of photos. I have them set to write to both the SD card the PC. Is there a way to have the cameras write to separate folders so I can more easily review the most recent photos taken?

Right now the photos are written to a single folder on the PC with the photo names assigned by the camera. This allows me to see which photo came from which camera, but it's difficult to quickly find the most recent photo taken by camera 1 and camera 2 because they're buried.

Thanks!

You can use backslash character in filename template, something like this : [Camera Name]\DSC_[Counter 4 digit]
