mphx / reyalp, Can you confirm it solved the issue ? (second, Will it work on my FW version 1.3.0-3492)?
However, as I noted in the earlier posts, you will need to make sure all the cameras end up on the same zoom step. On elph130 at a least, this requires additional logic, because the number of steps it moves per click does not appear to be completely deterministic. It's possible that using levent functions would be more predictable.
By "additional logic" I assume you mean a small script that handles the clicks and checks the zoom position and corrects where necessary?
repeat click'zoom_in' until get_zoom() >= 50
repeat if get_zoom() < 50click'zoom_in'elseif get_zoom() > 50click'zoom_out'enduntil get_zoom() == 50
con 28> =repeat click'zoom_out' until get_zoom() <= 20 return get_zoom()29:return:20con 29> =return get_zoom()30:return:19
Code: [Select]repeat if get_zoom() < 50click'zoom_in'elseif get_zoom() > 50click'zoom_out'enduntil get_zoom() == 50
Is it worth doing :Code: [Select]press("zoom_in") sleep(delay)release("zoom_out") where delay is a small value ?

PS: i can link you the footage from yesterday's live if you like people , but its a greek tv show and i don't know if you will understand anything
If you want to use CHDK's USB remote "sync" feature, you need to be able to disconnect the 5V "red" wire to all 80 cameras at exactly the same time. If you don't want to lose USB communications, then you can't simply turn off the power to all the hubs (even supposing that causes the individual cameras to all see the power go off at exactly the same time).If you can make reyalp's calibrated sync shooting mode in multicam.lua work acceptably then you are spared the pain of trying to switch the hubs. Note that your earlier tests on two cameras don't tell you what will happen with 80 cameras - the sync error is not 80x(two camera sync error). It might actually be okay for your application.
There is one thing I don't get:"If the Enable Sync option is set in CHDK then each camera will wait for the final transition of the USB signal ( 5V to 0V )."It seems just to be the opposite, with Sync enabled my camera takes a shot immediately when it gets 5V on the usb port and as reslult the camera's are not in sync. (elph300hs, one push, normal control mode) With sync disabled** it works as I would like it takes the shot as soon as the 5v is switched off, just like the inverted remote script.
Any chance a kind guru could comment on or, even better, fix the "capt_seq.c"
