Trigger "auto focus" on user button?

Tue Jun 16, 2020 9:09 pm

Is there a way to assign "trigger auto focus" from the UDM-1 to a camera user button? Or a button on the OCU-1? (same functionality as pressing the red button on top of the handle on the WCU-4)

Dear Joachim,

since this function is managed/executed by the WCU-4 itself thisis currently not possible.

Cheers,

Hey guys,

I checked with PM and noted that feature request.
On the OCU-1 it is already possible:

The function is called “FOC TRK”: It activates the focus tracking function.
Motor remains on the tracked focus distance after button release.

At the moment it’s not possible to assign this function to the user buttons on the camera.


Best,
Jan
