Thanks Ronlinbo, I'm running Firmware Version v184.108.40.2065_17032708_v220.127.116.11 and can't find the setting in the web interface.
I neither can find the ”disable autofocus” setting on my RLC-423.
Are the focus settings now saved with the PTZ-Presets?
Where do I find the feature?
I have no solution to focus problem, but I put my script online. You can use it as an example on how to control the camera. I used the firefox developer toolbar to sniff the json requests and replay them with curl.
Maybe this helps.
we also have problems with the autofocus but on the RLC-423. While one can set up defined presets of position and zoom, the focus is not saved. After recalling a defined position the camera refocuses again if a different zoom setting is used, even if the focus was precisely tuned for that position before the position was saved. The api is fine and it's quite easy to control the camera with json requests (though unfortunately not documented, it was not too hard to figure out) but not saving the focus to the presets renders the camera unusable for us, since it get's the focus quite frequently wrong when there are things in the foreground or the camera is behind some window.
We bought the camera for evaluation purpose and though the picture quality is quite good, we'll have to stick to our old brand models at least until this is implemented in the firmware.
Besides from that it's a nice camera.
