    Dear MohabMSorry for my slow reply. This error occurs only with Nikon cameras. (Some Nikon cameras produce this error only if the shutter speed is too long - e.g. 2 sec.)Reason: The program gphoto2 (which controls the camera) do not wait for the camera's reply after sending the --capture-image command.Solution: Comment the lines 262-283 in the source file (productphoto360.py).

After sending the --capture-image command the computer wait 2 sec (time.sleep(2)) and add the command to the stepper motor. For using longer shutter speed change "2" to higher number. After starting the shooting process make sure that the camera and the turntable work together correctly.Because the program gphoto2 do not get any feedback from the camera with these Nikon models, the preview function doesn't work.If you still have questions, please write to my email: adam_at_preparatorium.huBest,Adam
