The following tests were done with a Canon 30D and a Canon D20. With an empty memory card, it takes between 3 and 4 seconds between the shot and the apparition of the picture in Trombino Photo.
After few hundreds of photos, the time increases to 6 seconds. That's why we advise to have several memory cards for your shooting

What is the automatic scroll mode?

With this option, accessible from the main window and in the Configuration window, Trombino Photo automatically passes to the next student after the picture is taken. After the shot, the photo of the student appears.

Is the automatic scroll mode is activated (at 2 seconds for example), 2 seconds is the time elapsed before the next student appears. then it switch to the next student after a changeable delay. This gives time to the photographer to check if the photo is correct. The delay can be changed (between 1 and 10 seconds)

If the automatic scoll mode is deactivate, the photographer must manually switch from one student to another after each shot..

When the automatic scroll mode is activated, if the photographer deletes the student photo before Trombino Photo passes to the next student, the automatic scroll mode is temporary deactivated and will re-activate after the next shot.
