I've been trying out SunsetF16 script and I prefer it to Sunset5 due to the more intuitive setup options.
You could try this : Yet Another Sunset Script (yass) v4.2

although I need to update it to use the new 1.3.0 mf function ...  I'll probably do that today.

Sounds good.  Thanks.

I was adding additional ISO selections on Meteor.lua for my ELPH 300 HS.  I added the SV value for 2500 ISO but I don't know the value for 3200.  I tried to run LookupSv96.bas script for the values but it didn't work on this camera though it had previously worked on the A4000

The other little thing is the LCD off option didn't seem to work with this camera.  It did do a nice job of time-lapse last night though.

ISO 3200 = Sv96 510

But that value is already available in the most recent version of meteor2.lua

Does it do anything at all? I'll play with it on a couple of my cameras.

Whatever I tried to alter the ISO didn't work (in other words I don't know what i'm doing).  The Meteor2.lua ISO settings only go as high as 1600.  I was trying to add 2000, 2500, and 3200.

The only time the screen is off is while it is taking a photo.  The Disable LCD off under CHDK settings is set to never. 

Thanks

Are you using the latest v2.4 of the script?  It includes 3200 and 6400

Download again if not.

Use the scripts parameter that says "Display Off"  rather than the CHDK settings.  Tested on my cameras and it works for all.

I had not realized there was a newer v2.4 of the script.

All the ISO options are present now.  Awesome. Thanks

I did have the "Display Off" parameter selected on the script.  Still do and still doesn't turn off. Sorry :(

I can live without it.  I may eventually fashion a dual 18650 parallel battery pack to extend shooting time while at a remote location where an AC power adapter couldn't be used.

Try this ?

Code: [Select]
--[[
@title LCD Off
--]]
print("turning off display")
sleep(1000)
set_lcd_display(0)
sleep(2000)
print("display turned back on")
set_lcd_display(1)
sleep(1000)

Save as lcd_test.lua (or download from the attachment).

It turned the display off and then back on when done.  So I guess lcd_test.lua worked.

While running meteor2.lua, after the pic is taken, the display comes back on during the interval time then goes back off while the photo is being exposed, and continues to repeat.

Hmmm ... try the attached modified version of meteor2.lua  ( meteor2x.lua ) ?
