It looks like no further progress was made on this issue, and the define was not added in the trunk.
That define was actually removed, once nafraf found that zebra no longer crashes the camera without defining CAM_ZEBRA_NOBUF.

To me, the symptoms like look some kind of memory corruption...
FWIW, if memory right below the allocated area (base pointer - 8) gets corrupted, free() will no longer work (checked this on a r50 camera, so it can be different here).
Also, it would be possible to hook malloc and free (their low level functions actually), but I don't know how much debug data that would generate.

Yes, I did notice that eventually but apparently NOBUF stops the crashing again. :-[

I haven't had time to look at the zebra code yet to see if there are additional problems with the dimensions.

@joegiampaoli

Here's another test build for the zebra issue. I think the viewport height may have been incorrect before. Please check if zebra crashes, and if it doesn't, make sure it still looks correct.

 :D

It's drawing perfectly, updates as I move camera, no full screen blinking red. Memory is stable, no crashes, tried half press and full press, memory good after that. I just have to calibrate it now with the previews of the canon.

Thank you so much!  :)

Oh I haven't done the included tests to give you results, sorry about that, been so busy with work! I'll get to that ASAP!

Cheers!

Thanks for testing, I've checked that change in, so it will be in 1.4 autobuilds 4294 and later.

You mean the threshold values?

No worries, you've already helped a lot :)

Perfect! I'll later download a fresh install to run it all freshly!

Yes, I see I do have to raise the over-exposure values

One question, should the histogram be just the same as the one on the preview of canon's or not really since it's measuring a higher DR from the sensor and in a realtime way and not the JPEG's?

There shouldn't be much need to re-test stuff that's already been tested with build I posted.

It won't be identical, but it should be recognizably similar. CHDK options like log vs linear, auto magnify etc. will affect how similar.

The CHDK histogram comes from the live view buffer, so it probably isn't higher DR than the Canon jpeg one.

Perfect! Just wanted to make sure if it was OK if histogram wasn't identical to what I saw in jpeg previews, but it does look similar as you say

Thanks again!

OK, I had some free time today to do some of the test scripts included in 1.4

isobase didn't create a log but this is the result I got from screen:

isobase.lua
BASE=200


I have a question about that isobase, does that mean that's the camera's "native true ISO"? like NIKON's that have 200 as base also? Or nothing to do with that? And do you know what is the true basic ISO in Powershots? 80? 100?  ???

Attaching one file with the logs, help that helps if needed for something and thanks for this awesome freedom! :)
