waterwingz,

"I wrote that to help with a specific problem we are having with the  IXUS125 but after three revisions thought it might be a handy response to your request for focus bracketing.  I don't need anything tested at this point but thanks for your offer!  Feel free to edit and play with it for whatever photo effect you are looking for."

Loaded focus.lua and took a look at the options.

Have you posted anywhere what "default and the various numbers" do?

Thanks

Gene

Checked ELPH 110 HS (IXUS 125 HS) Porting Thread http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=8085.190 and found mention of focus problem "focus doesn't match the choosen value" but no focus lua.

It's a pretty limited script in terms of option. 

The first one is Lock via which lets you setup the camera for manual focus prior to it trying to set focus.  The options are :
  • None = nothing special is done
  • AFL = script will put the camera in Canon's AutoFocusLock mode
  • MF = script will put the camera in Canon's Manual Focus mode
Some cameras will set focus properly with this option set to "None",  some will set focus when the camera is in "AFL" mode,  and some will set focus in "MF" mode.  Many will do so for two or three of these option.  In general "MF" is most likely to work for all cameras.  But you have to test this for your camera model.

The second is Logging. The options are :
  • [    ] =  script messages not logged to the SD card
  • [ * ] = script message are logged to the SD card

Other than that, edit  first line of the script that says :

Code: [Select]
distance = { 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000, 3000, 4000,  5000, 6000, 7000, 10000, 15000, 20000, 40000, 50000, 60000, 700000, -1 }
for the distance setpoint (in mm) that you want to use.  The list can be any length and -1 means infinity.

manual focus: IXUS 132 / ELPH 115 IS Porting Thread

waterwingz,

Thank you for the detailed explanation.

"Lock via which lets you setup the camera for manual focus prior to it trying to set focus."
Is this possible at present with the IXUS 132/ELPH 115?

Did some searching and found your Setting focus from scripts or menus : please run this script and report back « Reply #133 on: 06 / January / 2014, 21:44:37 »  and Focus Test XRef Table
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccckey=0Aoneohrr2KUBdHp1bkJ2LXN4RzExWUp1OW43REtLZ2c#gid=1 

from this table IXUS 132/ELPH 115? "set focus only"  crash.  Test status is listed as complete.

I do not understand?  Does this mean that the IXUS 132/ELPH 115 is unable to set focus?

Also did not see a need for IXUS 132/ELPH 115 testers.

Gene

Six month ago,  I got fed up with not being able to set focus at infinity using scripts with some of my CHDK cameras.  So I decided to try and fix that.
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=11078.0
Six months later it's still not done but its a whole lot better if you use the 1.3.0 version of CHDK.

The spreadsheet you found lists test results using the set focus code in CHDK 1.2.0 or older.   Many cameras would not set focus or worse, would crash when you tried it.   The crash part should be gone in 1.3.0 and except for a couple of really old camera models,  all cameras will set focus.

Or so I thought until last week,  when it was discovered that some models are still having problems.  Currently we know this affects the ixus125 and s100.  There are likely others.   Still working on a solution but its not going well.

Stay tuned.

A reminder: the IXUS 135 / ELPH 120 IS turned out to have identical firmware. That model now has a separate port which is a copy of the IXUS 132 / ELPH 115 IS port. Therefore, all future changes to this port will have to be applied to the other one too.

Does User Menu Edit Work? ELPH 115 IS Porting Thread
« Reply #95 on: 05 / November / 2014, 10:29:46 »
Decided to try User Menu so followed the steps for Editing on the CHDK Wiki http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/User_menu

After selected TV Bracketing tried to add to User Menu using "Half Shoot" but it did not work (was unable to find ERASE Button).

Has anyone been able to get the User Menu to work for the ELPH 115?

Thanks

Ken

Oh boy. Another out of date wiki page.  I'll take a look at fixing that tonight.

Meanwhile, assuming you got to the Menu Settings menu and selected User Menu Edit, then press Func/Set and pick Add& Remove Menu Items. Navigate to the menu item you want to add and press the left arrow button on the camera keypad. Answer yes to the resulting dialog box.

Hi all.
I have 3 ixus 132 with firmware v100a and would like to use chdk together with ulimate lua for a timelapse project.
My problem is that after getting the cameras i found that they are v100a and are not supported.
I have tried corralling the chdk version for the V100b firmware but the script doesn't run as it should.
Is there any way i could get a firmware dump so any one with the knowledge could help me getting a working chdk on that camera?
Any way to update the firmware to 100b?
Thanks in advance
Best regards.
Philip

I'm not sure that I understand what you have done here?   By "script" do you mean STICK?   Or are you saying you were actually able to install the 1.00b version of CHDK for the ixus132, run it, and activate the ultimate.lua script?

Only if Canon provides an official firmware update.  Which they almost never do unless there is a very serious problem.
