    Afternoon all

    I am setting up a task to take a photo every minute for three hours. (For>take photo>wait>End For)

    I have set the photo resolution to (3120*4160) which is the max the Moto G3 can manage.

    The pictures taken with this Task are noticeably lower quality than the ones I take manually with the camera app. The average file size also drops from 3mb down to 2mb.

    Anyone have any ideas how I can improve quality with this Task, or an alternate method?
    I've tried a dedicated time lapse app before but it let me down.

    Thanks

    Is the phone unlocked at all time? If so, you could try to launch the camera > and use AutoInput to press the shoot button. Otherwise try looking up a plugin, it might give better quality

    Thanks. I'm looking into Auto Input now. Fingers crossed its an improvement.
