camera.startCapture

Overview

The shooting method differs depending on the shooting mode (captureMode) settings and "_mode" settings.
Interval composite shooting and multi bracket shooting are supported by only RICOH THETA S (firmware version or above).

If the camera is set to still image capture mode, one of interval, composite or multi bracket shooting is started depending on "_mode". If exposureDelay is enabled, self-timer shooting is started.
Video shooting starts when the mode is set to video capture mode.

The progress rate can be acquired by the "progress" object of Commands/Execute and Commands/Status in case of the interval shooting with limited number, the composite shooting, or multi bracket shooting. In addition, "state" is changed "done" when the specified number/time shooting is completed.
