I am new to this forum and relatively technically savvy, but not to the point of creating firmware/programs, nor even understanding a lot of the tech language I have been reading on this site. Hoping someone can help me anyway. I installed the CHDK g15-100b-1.1.0-2921-full_BETA on my G15 a few days ago. It was late at night, so I did not have a chance to program or test it right away. Two days later, I was shooting some pics in standard mode, without having done anything to or in CHDK yet, except to see if the menu came up. Everything was going along OK, until about 20 pics into the shoot, some of the camera's functions started freezing up. For instance, I could no longer zoom in or out. I restarted the camera and it went well for a few more shots, then started doing the same thing. Thinking it might be the CHDK on my card that was responsible, I switched to another card that did not contain the CHDK. But it still kept on doing it. And, as time went by, the situation got worse and worse, to where now, the camera will shoot pics, but only on the presets present. It will not let me into the Menu or the Function Set areas, it will not zoom in or out. I can review pics made, but only in scroll mode. No single pics, no zooming in. When I try to access the menu, I get the flashing red camera shake icon.
Totally not sure if this is CHDK Beta causing my camera to do this, or if it's just something with the camera itself. It was never bumped or dropped or exposed to any extreme conditions. The only thing that was done to it that was different than before, is the CHDK installation on the card and the viewing of the CHDK menu.
Any thoughts or similar experiences from anyone?
Thanks in advance!
