Thanks a lot for your feedback, if it will be possible to implement hook_shutter() function on the KAP script I will test it during several flights.
Okay - found the problem. Not really sure why it's camera specific but adding a short delay after releasing the shutter button when halting video cures the problem.Test script here : xkap_uav.lua

There are several other changes in there that have not had any testing. I'll do some unit testing of each of the changes and then ask you to give it a try? There are a few other script users who might also be willing to give the changes a whirl. That should be the last version before CHDK 1.4.0 becomes the "stable" release and I can upgrade the script to use the new functionality that brings.
As a small aside, the script now returns to taking still frames once the camera has finished shooting the video, I have turned the flash to 'off' initially but when the video finishes the flashmode seems to revert to 'auto'? I thought about changing the flashmode each time using the lua script but I can see a 'get_flash_mode' function but no obvious 'set_flash_mode' option? Am I missing something obvious?
set_prop(props.FLASH_MODE, 2) -- flash off set_prop(props.AF_ASSIST_BEAM,0) -- AF assist off if supported for this camera
tried to use the 3.4a script on my IXUS970. It doesn't work. (CHDK 4138)
Checked also on IXUS130. The KAP_UAV 3.4a works great.(1.6 also)
I can start the script, one photo is taken (and stored), then nothing else happens.
I can leave the script with the playback key but i can not contol the camera as usual. After restart I always can reproduce that.
Focus@Infinity doen't change the problem.

There are only problems with the IXUS970?
Hmmm ... I'll need to know a little more about what "nothing else happens" means.
... and post them here.
Please confirm that you can stop the script when it "hangs" by using the MENU key?
Sorry for that.
QuoteThere are only problems with the IXUS970?Yes.
1. Load Script.2. In Alt-Mode press shoot -> Script starts, four lines of Results appear, one photo is taken and reviewed.3. the camera seems to be frozen.4. menu button pressed, screen stays with the already taken picture (and nothing else). Nothing else happens. (like frozen)5. Review button pressed: immediatly i can see the four result-lines and the next photo is taken. but from now on there is nothing going on automatic. Sometimes the result lines are a little bit dearranged and show: shot in auto mode, meter reading invalid.6. when I press print-button(Alt-key) the result lines disappear. (but the photo is still on the screen and nothing else) I cannot go back in Alt-mode pressing review button reboots the camera.
I will try to make a fresh copy of CHDK and the script in the evening.
