Animation of bluetooth controller sequence
This shows an example of a sequence from the bluetooth controller. It is a touch screen application so each area of the screen activates a command. The red arrows increment or decrement the selected variable. Touching on a parameter brings the red dots to that location and allows the arrows to effect changes to that parameter. Once the parameters are set, touching the exposure button begins the shot and progress is shown but the bar sequence.
