MDFB 2013 v1.1 :- made a single script from the video button and no video button versions- converted from uBASIC to Lua for better readability and speed- modified @param settings to use new CHDK capabilites easing user input- improved test mode using the new md_detect_motion() grid options- tweaked some of the timing parameters between shots for better stability- added the ability to stop the script by pressing any key - stops after next shot- added an ugly looking splash screen (you can disable it)- added power saving / stealth mode support for display or backlight disable- added automatic switch to shooting mode if camera is in playback- added disable for flash and focus assist lights- added user configurable logging- updated the excellent user guide!
I tried the naive implementation, adding shoot() to the inner until() loop in fast_md(). This works, but the total cycle time of that shot is about 4s. If I'm aiming for a 15s timelapse, that means there's only about a 70% chance of catching a motion event. Is there a different strategy that will reduce the cycle time of the shot?
function fast_md() splash("Fast Reaction Photo MD") repeat press("shoot_half") repeat sleep(10) until (get_shooting()==true) update_display_state() motion = detect_motion(e,f,1,9) if ( motion == 0 ) then click("shoot_full_only") else if (post_shot_delay> 0) then sleep(post_shot_delay) end release("shoot_full") end release("shoot_half") repeat sleep(10) until (get_shooting()==false) wait_click(50) until not( is_key("no_key"))end
That's working great, the cycle time is down in the neighborhood of 2s. Now all I need is a thunderstorm. Usually every afternoon, but not this trip.
Merry Christmas from Malaysia.
Your nice MDFB update seems to working with my S110 but I get this screen all the time when I push down the shutter button. I don't think it is related to your script as I get it for other things as well. Any idea on how to turn this off? Thanks.
