With the SX260 HS I haven't been able to figure out how to get the focus to lock at infinity. I even tried to take pictures using just M mode (no CHDK) and using these settings:
I am using aflock for the Focus @ Infinity Mode parameter. Also, does it matter what mode the camera is in when tthe script is running? Which mode should it be it M, Av, Tv, AUTO etc?
I took the memory card out and reset the camera. Then put it back in with the changed Focus param to "none".I went outside and point the camera at the overcast clouds and ran the script. The properties of each photo say that the focal length is 4mm.
the properties of each photo say that the focal length is 4mm.
The "Focus Distance Upper" and "Focus Distance Lower" items I mentioned earlier should tell you something about the the focus distance, but the meaning is not entirely clear to me. This can be displayed with exiftool, but they are proprietary Canon "maker notes" so many programs will not display them. It is also not certain they would correctly reflect CHDK overrides.If you are testing on the ground, you can aim the camera at something close. If it is in focus, the camera AF is active and your override to infinity is not working.
