So does red mean over or under exposed? Two dots - one above the other?  I seem to recall having a 35MM range finder camera that did that with little color lamps of some sort.

Yes, a sort of semaphore with just one lamp :-)  Minimalistic but effective.

Updated to v2.6.  Changes allow the script to still operate if the camera is placed in Playback mode (to examine previous images) or if CHDK exits ALT mode (causing the script to simply pause).

Wow. Thanks WW.
I was just going to ask for your help ... after many unsuccessfull attempts ... to implement the "get_alt_mode" in "the" script :)

A slight mod to better render the regular buttons behaviour in Playback Mode

Code: [Select]
    elseif ( is_key("playback")) then                                                         -- works effective rev 3644
        switch_mode(0)
        repeat     
            update_status_line(playback_str[lang])
            wait_click(100)
            if ( is_key("left")) then press("left") while(is_pressed("left")) do sleep(20) end release("left")
            elseif ( is_key("right")) then press("right") while(is_pressed("right")) do sleep(20) end release("right")
            elseif ( is_key("zoom_in")) then press("zoom_in") while(is_pressed("zoom_in")) do sleep(20) end release("zoom_in")
            elseif ( is_key("zoom_out")) then press("zoom_out") while(is_pressed("zoom_out")) do sleep(20) end release("zoom_out")
            elseif is_key("menu") then click("menu") end               
        until      is_key("playback")
        switch_mode(1)             

Note: on ixus 115 & 125 i need the "menu" button to reset the reviewed picture after a zoom/enlargement. So i replaced "display" with "menu".

What does "better" mean?

The whole DISP vs VIDEO vs MENU button thing on different cameras continues to be a mess.  Fortunately,  it's easy to tweak scripts for your particular camera, as you have learned.

-Zoom in&out the reviewed picture ... bad eyes here  :)
-move left&right the enlarged picture holding the relative button

just noticing that up&down keys work regularly (when in playback mode - even holding down them) without any needed script line
doh???

EDIT
OK, cracked the conundrum (hope for a fine translation)

i was recalling the Playback mode with a long press of the "play" button (as always when CHDK running)
Doing so the picture enlargement isn't available.

With a short press of the "play" button the script acts fine.

Got it now.  The click("left") works okay but you also need to be able to hold the "left" button down sometimes in Playback mode.

Not sure what you are seeing here.   The up& down buttons should be ignored in playback mode as the script is currently implemented.

What you are doing with the short press is exiting <ALT> rather than entering the script's "playback" mode.

If you update to the latest version of 1.3.0 then exiting <ALT> is handled by putting the script into an idle mode where you can operate the camera normally (as if the script and CHDK were not running).

Hello and thank you

ixus 310 (elph 500 HS) (touchscreen ;:-( )
When entering playback mode, script displays "Script in Playback Mode". Zoom dont work, until chdk are exited.
For getting back to shoot mode, must press play (displayed message "Script in Playback Mode" disappear and showed chdkplus shooting display screen and camera playback mode again) and then shoot button (instead pressing one time shoot button)
If in playback mode exit chdk, then message "Script in Playback Mode" are displayd on screen and pressing shoot button falls back to shooting mode, message "Script in Playback Mode" are leaving there and switching CHDK on off dont change situation, but if CHDK are svitched on, and enter playback, then chdkplus shooting screen are displayed and going back to shooting mode all are OK

This are only for information. Double button press are for me OK and playback I check mostly graf and shooting parameters only.

Using ixus310_elph500hs-101a-1.3.0-3670-full and CHDK Plus v2.6
