    WHOO HOO!!!!

    Success! I got it all worked out.

    I didn't need all those extra lines. I just had to put them all on just one line.

    Code: [Select]
    If GUICtrlRead($checkISO)== $GUI_CHECKED Then
    $optionread = $optionread & "-composite:iso -EXIF:ISO -cameraISO -MakerNotes:ExposureTime -MakerNotes:FNumber "
    $optionwrite = $optionwrite & "-composite:iso>EXIF:ISO -MakerNotes:ExposureTime>EXIF:ExposureTime -MakerNotes:FNumber>EXIF:FNumber"
    EndIf

    I'll see if I can attach my Auto CHDK Patcher to this post....

    Please read the info at Auto-ISO Tool/Patcher for installation info.

    I changed some of the items on the display to also be more user friendly and CHDK specific.

    * Barney Fife is doing a major happy-dance for having been able to figure this out  :lol :P :D :xmas ::) :lol

    Okay you people, start handing out the applause hits, I deserve 'em this time.  :D



    Hi Barney Fife!
    Trying to install the Auto CHDK Patcher I got a virus warning (WORM/Autoit.K) using Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic.

    I hope this is just a misinformation of my antivir software!

    Cheers, Kalli

    I have used AutoIT for a while.  On there forum this issue is discussed and there is a sticky about it.  It seems that because of the nature of the script that it is identified as a virus by various programs because of the potential that is available to malicious programers.  One solution is to publish the source files and a link to the compiler and let people make it exacutable on their own.  That way they can explore the script if they are worried about security.

    Good Work!  I hadn't followed the links previously, but I can see now where you gave the source code.  I think that a lot of things could be done with AutoIT to make life eaiser,

    Barney, thanks so much for Auto CHDK to EXIF v1.2

    I have a question about how it works, though.  It seems I can use it even if I didn't use CHDK to take a picture, right?   In place of ExifTool to get the ISO info into the proper field where most apps expect it. 

    When I use it on a CHDK picture, it uses the real values rather than the marketing values, yeah?  So I might see ISO 120 instead of ISO 100.  That's great.

    But here is where I get a little confused.  If I set the shutter speed to 1/100,000 it will tell me something like 1/99,384.  But based on what I've read, the shutter can't go that fast.  Similarly, it will report ISO 16 when we know the ISO in fact doesn't go that low.  I unserstand why it is reporting those numbers (because that is what I set in CHDK) but is there an easy way to know when to trust the reported numbers and when the reported numbers are just what I was hoping to get?

    Thanks!
