    Hi Charlie,
    There used to be a problem that if autofocus could not not be found the shot could not be captured because AF would continue searching. This problem was solved by separating the two functions.
    I think you should send a feature request to support.

    seems that's the new normal now instead of really solving a problem you make it worse. very much reminds me of the insane layer behaviour change.  and btw a lot of tether shooting functions modern cameras offer don't work in c1 either. 

    @ Charlie  maybe it is time to check out the smart shooter tether app as c1 seems more dedicated to sell overpriced presets than to provide reliable working solutions for professionals.

    I appreciate this could have been an issue before not being able to capture until AF has been found. But a fix for one error is a new error altogether!

    one might think there is a kind of rest interest to keep pro user on board which would also mean to listen and understand their needs but it more seems the developers decide what is right detached from work reality.

    This approach will hide the problem of incorrect auto focus field positionning or over exposure. While if the shot was not taken, photographer would've checked those parameters and could've fixed it. I would like to point out not taking that potentially out of focus shot was a feature and not a bug. Please reconsider change. We cannot deploy this version in this function design. It is a clear invitation to out of focus photos.

    yes, a c1 camera communication / software problem is fixed by destroying what is a totally normal and  industry standard behaviour. this is so nuts that the only possible conclusion is that idiots are in charge now.
