S3IS
- "set_focus() only" crashes the camera
- weirdness: when shooting (shoot_full) is enabled, the PressSw1AndMF test crashes the camera
- setting focus in AF lock fails due to inaccuracy

We are now at 67% of all cameras tested !

Results here : Focus Test XRef Table

For the record,  here's what's missing :

A Series
   A450 A495 A550  A560  A580  A700  A800
   A1100  A1300  A2400  A4000

G Series 
   G7   G9   G11

IXUS Series

   ixus700_sd500 ixus750_sd550 ixus800_sd700 
   ixus900_sd900  ixus950_sd850  ixus960_sd950 ixus980_sd990
   ixus1000_sd4500 

IXUS/ELPH Series
   ixus125_elph110hs  ixus230_elph310hs ixus240_elph320hs ixus300_sd4000

While many of these cameras are quite old,  I'm surprised at some of the new and popular cameras still on the list.  If you have any of these cameras,  please consider testing for us?  Link to Testing Instructions

Meanwhile, I think it's time to plan what to do with all this.  I should have a draft plan posted this weekend.

Thanks.
IXUS 700
Wow - that might win the prize for the worst camera to try and do MF. Nothing worked and most of them also crashed. 

Updated master sheet attached.

Here are the results for the a4000.  I had to disable the set_aflock() and PT_MFOn tests to get to the end.

There could be issues with the port, unfortunately the batteries I have only last a few minutes so it's difficult to do any real work or testing on the camera.

It's so old I doubt there's much interest in improving it.

Yea - lots of stuff in stubs_entry_2.S so its likely nobody cleaned up this one up after you made the sig finder work for almost 100% of everything.   8)

That raises an interesting question.   When I get the reccommended changes sorted for debate,  are we okay with just setting old cams to "safe" values  (i.e. SD override off) and wait until somebody notices and is willing to help fix it?

Ideally the changes should be backwards compatible - for untested cameras it should work (or fail) the same as it does now.

However that's probably not realistic, so I'd say a safe/disabled approach would be ok.

That's great!

I'm using S100 and want to make interval shots with fixed focus. Does it mean set_aflock should work for me?
