photoSentinel Mini | Recommended Settings
Below are our recommended settings for shooting long-term timelapse with the photoSentinel Mini.*
The below settings are active on the camera when your photoSentinel Mini is dispatched. Sometimes, especially if left on the shelf for a time, you may find the X-A3 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.
*This article was originally written when Fujifilm X-A1 was the camera in use by the photoSentinel Mini, but these instructions will still be relevant for X-A2/X-A3, with minor differences.
IMPORTANT: When you have configured all the camera settings, turn the camera switch (not the photoSentinel Mini switch) off and back on again to save the settings.
