Below are our recommended settings for shooting long term time-lapse with the Fujifilm XA1 camera inside the photoSentinel Mini.
These are the settings on the camera when the photoSentinel Mini is dispatched. Sometimes, especially if left on the shelf for a time, you may find the X-A1 camera resets to factory settings. When this happens, you can re-configure the camera back to our suggested settings below. Of course, as the photographer you know the settings that will suit your job the best; the settings below are suggestions only.
IMPORTANT: When you have configured all the camera settings, turn the camera switch (not the photoSentinel switch) off and back on again to save the settings.
