Returns OK or error.


Capture a new image using the camera.
Works only if the camera capabilities include ICCameraDeviceCanTakePicture.
You MUST call ImageCapture.RequestEnableTethering before requesting take picture.

You may need to add a script pause after this to let the camera do the work.

Confirmed to work in August 2020 to work on macOS Catalina with my Canon EOS 760D.
