DCS-942L FTP overwrite file functionality removed?
« on: June 26, 2012, 08:06:53 AM »

On previous cameras (eg: the 932L) we could enable the FTP function to send a snapshot image every xx seconds, set a base file name, and set the Overwrite file function. 

On the 942L, this functionality appears to have been removed from the code. 

Can anyone tell me how I can get the 942L to FTP the current image every xx seconds and overwrite the file on the destination? (just like the previous cameras)  Perhaps there is a new way and I can't find how to do it?

Chall,

Thanks for bringing attention to this.  Completely agree.  To locate where the image is stored on the server you need to generate the current date and time.  Very frustrating.  Especially when dealing with time zones.  Plus instead of just one file on the server there will be excess files and folders that now need to be managed and/or deleted.

Ex:

<img src="20120711/04/20120711_040000.jpg">

They should at a minimum allow users to specify the upload filename and allow it to be written over as you mentioned.

Ex:

<img src="myphoto.jpg">
