Updated version of the script in now available from the download link in the first post.  It adds a user parameter that specifies the value used to disable image stabilization (IS).  The default action is now to not attempt to disable IS.

This was added because reyalp figured out that setting the wrong value in the IS prop can cause crashing on at least some cameras.

As there is no easy way for the average user to figure out what value to use for IS disable, adding this selection effectively removes IS disable as part of the script's normal functionality.  Given that we don't know for any camera if IS can actually be disabled by setting  the prop, this is probably not a bad thing.

MDFB2013 crashes my SX400IS but I am able to restart the camera by just pressing the playback or power button without having to take battery out.

I have deleted it and reinstalled it from the link in this thread but still the same problem.

There's a bug with this in the current version: Line 302
Code: [Select]
    if (set_IS_mode >= 0) then
should be
Code: [Select]
    if (set_IS_mode > 0) then
Otherwise it still tries to set when off.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Worse than that - it was setting it to -1 when off.  Who know what that does?

On sx710, it was the same as the previous issue, crash when powering of or switching to play. I'd guess it was ignored on older cams. May also explain the post from @ju1234 above mine.
