The following settings can be adjusted from the “Mechanical” tab:

Self-Timer and Remote Modes

When the camera is set to self-timer mode or to delayed remote or quick-response remote mode (supported cameras only), the “Mechanical” tab will show a shooting mode of Single, and any photographs taken with the Camera Control Pro 2 shoot buttons will be taken in single-frame mode with no shutter-release delay. To take pictures in self-timer or remote mode, use the shutter-release button on the camera or remote control.

Continuous Mode

The number of exposures that can be stored in the camera memory buffer is displayed at the right edge of the simulated LCD panel. This information is updated at regular intervals, but temporary discrepancies may exist between the display and the actual number of exposures that can be stored in the buffer.

Mirror Up Shooting

Clicking AF and Mup Shoot or Mup Shoot displays the following message. Clicking Shoot releases the shutter and lowers the mirror.
