camera.startCapture

Overview

Starts continuously shoots.
The shooting method changes according to the shooting mode (captureMode) and _mode settings.

In the still image shooting mode, interval shooting, interval composite shooting, multi bracket shooting, time shift shooting, burst shooting and continuous shooting is started depending on the _mode setting.
In the movie shooting mode, movie shooting is started.

If exposureDelay is enabled, self-timer shooting is started. Time shift shooting ignores self-timer.

For movie shooting or interval shooting with no shot count specified, “state” for Commands/Execute and Commands/Status changes to “done” immediately.
For interval shooting with the shot count specified, interval composite shooting, multi bracket shooting, time shift shooting, or continuous shooting, progress information can be acquired from the progress object of Commands/Execute and Commands/Status. Also, “state” changes to “done” when shooting of the specified number of shots or shooting of the specified period of time has been finished.

For RICOH THETA X, it is necessary to switch the shooting method using _shootingMethod before executing this API.
