So heres the plan, I want to use my X-T1 as a camera trap. I have everything I need - camera, flash (SB-28) and a PIR Motion Sensor hooked up to the cable release.
I've tested it all, it all works. The trigger releases shutter and the flash wakes up nice and fast to fire. The only problem I have is that the motion sensor (essentially just a cable shutter release) doesn't wake the camera up from Auto power-off (standby) mode.
Am I missing something here? A half-press of the shutter button wakes the camera but the cable release doesn't do it.
Would love some advice, hopefully i'm missing something or there is a workaround. I'm already well aware that battery life will be an issue and hoping I don't have to leave it on (i'd like to leave it out for more than one night!)
