Thanks for the updates. So it sounds like I can’t take a dual fisheye using a remote capture command.
What about this idea… I turn the camera on and then put it into plugin-mode (can that be done remotely?). In plugin mode it will take a picture right away. It then falls into a never-ending loop which monitors the image database for the presence of any items. I know I can grab and delete an image from the ricoh remotely even with a plugin active. Whenever I need a picture, I will delete whatever picture is in the database. The plugin will then see the database is empty then it takes another picture. I can then grab that image, and wait to delete it until I next want an image.
Does that seem like it has a prayer of working?
Thanks for all your help with this, you have saved me a huge amount of time not following useless trails.
