Nikon/Cannon SDK, control focus motor?
Jan 14, 2013

Hey all, been doing quite a bit of research and haven't found a good answer to this, so maybe you can help.  This question is somewhat similar to whats discussed in this thread:

But for a different application.  I'm working with the Nikon SDK right now, but the same question applies to the Cannon SDK as well.

Is it possible to step the focus motor while not in Live View?  Can I step the focus motor while in Video or Continuous shooting mode?  I would like the camera to behave in the normal, disconnected manner but override just the focus motor.  I'm working with the SDK but my C++ is terrible so I thought I may be able to save some time by floating the question here.

Thanks for any tips - james
