I tested the script on my camera. I use a Canon IXUS 230 HS (ELPH310HS) version 1.00e. I noticed that when first installed, the script starts and works fine. When the camera is restarted, it fails with "could not load propcase.lua". I researched this a bit and it seems it's related to memory issues and pools.
So I removed some of the functions that I didn't require for my camera like the iris control and some of the focusing methods. This got rid of the memory issues.
The next strange issue is that when the camera shuts down with the script running, on restart it crashes. When I press the shutter to stop script execution on reboot, the cam starts ok and then the script can be restarted.
Some of the uav control boards use 5V usb power to do the photo triggering. For cams without gps, this is great, because the position of the trigger is stored on the controllers storage. So in the end I removed the intervalometer too and replaced that with usb trigger, where a much longer pulse shuts down the camera.
It would be an interesting idea to extend the script to choose what happens with the usb trigger, but obviously I'm having troubles fitting the script in memory already. Is there any setting I can make to influence the use of memory?

I researched this a bit and it seems it's related to memory issues and pools. So if you start the camera "cold", have you loaded and run the script for an extended period of time (10 minutes) taking pictures? Is it only when you stop the script and rerun it that you have this problem?
I want to enforce infinite focus distance, but I am failing to
I have written :Min Av : 8Target Av : 8Max Av : 8So I am expecting 8 as Av but I am getting 2.8/3... What am I doing wrong ?
just be sure the camera is pointed at something off in the distance when the script starts.
So from my multirotor, I will therefore aim at the skyline, start the script, then put it on the ground and start flying.
A cool thing would have been to focus at the time of the very first picture and not when starting the script, so that delay before first picture can be used for taking off and elevate high enough before initial focus.
That's easy enough to add to the script but why not just let the camera focus before every shot then?
