Hi All,

I'm trying to get this to work with a gentwire using PWM. So far using the defaults It will turn off, turn on, and take a picture. I was wondering if anyone made a script that would allow for off, turn on, and take pictures at an interval until turned PWM turned it to one of the other two modes.

Thanks for any help!

Jim

Hi Jim.  You are the first person to report using the gentwire device and it's good to hear it's working.  I added that code without the ability to really test it with an actual gentwire module  ( I used an arduino board to generate the pulses for testing ).

As a small "reward",  I'll update the script to allow enabling intervalometer shooting under gentwire control.  As there are "only" six discrete signals available from that device and they are currently all used by the script,  I guess the question is what to trade off ? Select between zoom control and intervalometer mode?   Or just make the on/off also (optionally) enable the intervalometer when turned on?

Thanks! Waterwingz,

I think changing out the zoom with an intervalometer would be great (for me at least). I've used your script before but today was the first time with Gentwire so thanks for all the support and detail you put into this.

Best,

Jim

Canon s100?

Asking for camera recommendation on this forum is often a good idea.  However, most of the people who post here usually only have experience with one or two models (the one they happen to own and use) so most of the advice you will receive is basically opinions.

Having said that, from a CHDK perspective, it does not really matter much which CHDK supported camera you use - all the features will work pretty much the same way on any released camera. However, for your application there may be camera performance features that matter more to you.   Things like weight, size and battery life will be important.  You probably also want something that will shoot as fast as possible.  WIthout playing tricks, this is currently somewhere between two and four seconds per shot using things like the KAP_UAV.LUA script.  If you anticipate needing to go faster there are scripted ways to do so but getting below one second per shot could depend on the particular camera.

Sorry not to be more specific.  If you can live with the two seconds per shot and size/weight then either the s100 or sx260 would be good choices.  As the principal author of the KAP_UAV.LUA script, I also have an S100 and know it works well with the script.

For the same reason that s100 seems to be the best one...i will buy one and try it :)
I wait to dont have blurry photos!! Hhaha

Thanks :)

Umm ... let's not get too carried away here.  Those are sample values that should be useful.  As you start using the script you will probably want to tune for your own use.
