REMIX boots and most functions appear normal. Problem settings:. Zebra Blink 2 orange area is not a block now but seems to shape to proper Zebra readings, but this display is off-center crowding into the left black sidebar. The right 1/3 of the screen is still a black block with colored speckles, covering part of the image area and the right sidebar.. Histogram (Blend) now appears to work correctly. . ND Filter "In" or "Out" Appears to function correctly for one shot, but then freezes the camera with lens extended - have to use the Playback button to properly shut it down.. Grids are still proper size and shape but off-center into the left black icon bar.
REMIX 2 RESULTSI was able to try it out this morning. After one test of the 3 Digit readout I rebooted and retested to confirm, but the readings changed (?) After several tries including a couple removing and reinserting the card, it keeps coming up with inconsistent readings. I've shown the first and the two that repeated, but there were a couple of other different ones as well.
REMIX 3 RESULTSZebra is properly centered in the image frame now. Set to . Blink 2. over/under both increased to 10 (my normal setting on other cameras - I've never had Zebra working on the Ixus to optimize it). Set Restore Original and Restore OSD. Draw Over set to Nothing. and I changed Color Settings to differentiate over (green) and under (orange) exposure. Zebra mostly seems to shape correctly to over / under exposed areas, but depending on lighting gets very erratic. It will blink over / under exposed Zebra displays rather than blinking Zebra / clean OSD, and in one location it shows a large orange (underexposed) horizontal block covering the bottom third of the image area, with a lot of green and white stripes.Several times after a few shots it freezes the camera black screen with lens out. I have to hold the on/off button for a long time before it shows Error 26 and shuts down. (I can't think how to capture all these unpredictable behaviors in any sensible way in JPEGs or even in video since it changes wherever you point the camera and likely with Zebra settings. Mounting the Ixus on a tripod I shot a .MOV video using another camera's SuperMacro video and it captured a freeze/Error 26 shutdown - it's 89mb - I'm not experienced with video or file size reduction.). ND Filter "In" setting now flashes between dim and normal instead of staying dim, and reverts to normal lighting on shutter half-press. Also (with Zebra disabled) the camera froze again, required about 20 seconds on the power button before Error 26 and shutdown. (Note that it was working on Remix 2)Histogram still seems fine and as you predicted the Grids are still off center, irrelevant to me.I've never had any freeze / Error 26 problem with the camera using CHDK 1.1 for a couple of years now. Odd that it happened both with Zebra alone and with ND Filter alone. I don't know if the cause is either of those settings or something else about the build. I've done what I can today. I'll try to followup up on anything further from you.
