2.5.0.x manually canceling AF triggers notifications


#1

I have AF set to run at sequence start, but the last couple of nights I have run AF manually just before starting the sequence. When the automatic AF came up I canceled it (clicked the Cancel button) to skip it.

Even though I canceled it manually, SGP sends an alert through the notification system:

Auto focus received a bad HFR value 3 times in a row! Something may be wrong!

The alert text is a bit misleading, and is not necessary since I explicitly canceled the AF.

This is easily reproducible.

Thanks,
Andy

Log file
Here is where I cancelled the AF:
[2/3/2016 7:11:31 PM] [DEBUG] [Camera Thread] Handling monitoring event (Text File 1, Warning): (m31_ha) Auto focus received a bad HFR value 3 times in a row! Something may be wrong!


#2

This is kind of hard to reproduce for me… looking at the code it seems like it is timing based (meaning it happens only when cancel is clicked at a specific point in the AF routine). I think I have this fixed.
