My question would be: For the RC PWM control what kind of cable do I need?
I would prefer to use all 6 options. Also where should I set my "don't do anything PWM"?
I have a gentWIRE-USB which converts the PWM to Pulses for the script below but using that wire I was getting random actions and many errors in-between .
set_remote_timing 1000 while 1 do k = get_usb_power until k>0 if k < 5 then gosub "ch1up" if k > 4 and k < 8 then gosub "ch1mid" if k > 7 and k < 11 then gosub "ch1down" if k > 10 and k < 14 then gosub "ch2up" if k > 13 and k < 17 then gosub "ch2mid" if k > 16 and k < 20 then gosub "ch2down" if k > 19 then print "error"wend
Hello waterwingz, I wanted to say thanks for making this script.
I was originally going to ask about an error I was having, but it turns out it was due to being on a developmental 1.4 version of chdk.
A) are there any other camera settings I need to set up before starting the script? GPS is on, and I had some custom settings in the C mode prior to installing / configuring the script - does it matter what shooting mode my s100 is dialed to?
B) is there any way to disable to automatic rotation of images / orientation sensor in the s100? this is not really a script specific question, but you seem knowledgeable of the s100
I don't know where I went wrong, but after a few seconds of it working it went from taking pictures every few seconds, to taking video! I'm sure I am doing something very obviously wrong, but I cant work it out!...the video option appeared to be switched off?Cheers!
I also started playing with some of the parameters, and when I tried to revert the parameters back to defaults it didn't seem to want to do anything....it just held onto my settings I had put in myself!
I have been worrying a lot recently that my S100 may be a bit of a dud...and the focus seems very soft, and I have been advised that this script will get the best out of my camera, so now I just have to work out how to use it properly!
I was speaking to Dave Mitchell and he said that I could use it with my autokap rig, but couldn't remember which of the options to select for the usb shooting mode, i.e. on/off, none, oneshot or pwm?
Finally I was wondering if I can use the script if I want to just take shots with it on my remote controlled rig, where a servo arm comes down and presses the shutter?
When i use the USB Shot Control option On/Off I have to use the switch of my radio twice to start shooting. After the first time i only get the message "waiting for USB..." and it needs the second push to start shooting pictures. Is that ok ? And if it is, why is it better not to start immediately...
The second question is more important. In the chdk settings "Enable Remote" won't stay checked after on use of the script - that means i have to check this option every time before start otherwise my rc switch won't start the script at all.
set_config_value(121,0) -- USB remote disable
As far as i understand i need the initial USB 5v not till then the script starts with the second impulse.My problem with that is that i don't get a feedback of the actual stat and therefore I am never sure if the camera is shooting when my quadcopter is in the air. Yes, with only one needed push i wouldn't know that either...Probably there won't be a perfect solution for me...
As I read in some post above - if i want to use the PWM function I need this particular cable you mentioned.
I there some micro controller inside to transform the signal?
I tried some funny time changing the script to get some longer lasting 'windows' for the pulse and tried to emulate it by hand - just got error messages. You see I am not a tech guy (in fact a gardener) and need a lot of try and errors.
