I also ran a *.lua script for it in the Scripts folder, and got CHDK Error 16, saying "Your CHDK does not support native function calls" interrupting the script.
Phil,I tested your last "Remix4" based on CHDK 1.1.. Zebra is again reading into the left column and half the screen, while half the screen is a black box with colored speckles - much worse than Remix 3 based on CHDK 1.3.. Histogram works properly, as it has on 1.1 until now.. ND Filter seems to work fine, without freezing and shutting down the camera. This is an improvement over the standard CHDK 1.1 I've been using.If it continues stable, this would be the "keeper" version of CHDK for the Ixus 300, so far, because both Histogram and ND Filter work.It has not crashed or done anything abnormal apart from the Zebra fail. I tried running the ROMLOG utility anyway, using your directions, and that froze the camera black screen. I also ran a *.lua script for it in the Scripts folder, and got CHDK Error 16, saying "Your CHDK does not support native function calls" interrupting the script.
Thanks. I tried it, will call it Remix5. Histogram - Seemed to intermittently work right and then start the flashing behavior beteen center peak and two-edge peaks. Error 26 freeze and shutdown after first shot.Zebra (O/U 10, draw over nothing) - like Histogram intermittently displayed correctly then flashes between a proper Zebra display and large orange block covering lower half of the whole screen, with narrow stripes across the top half. freeze / shutdown after several shots. ROMLOG attached. There were two shutdowns - first using Histogram, second using Zebra. Not sure if the Romlog captures all or just the current boot.(For Waterwingz: Remixes based on CHDK 1.1 don't have the native calls function permission setting, this Remix5 based on 1.3 has it.)
RE earlier experience, what I called Remix3 using 1.3 above had similar problems with Zebra, namely worked right briefly and within the image zone instead of crowding into black borders, but then flashes a big orange box with stripes - erratic behavior and then the Error 26 freeze / shutdown. The Histogram seemed to work at that time, as I said, but I only used it for a few minutes before trying the Zebra, so can't say if it was persistently working. I see the Romlog.log readout from this morning says January 21, but my camera is set right and you'll see in Win Explorer (or whatever) that the Romlog file I sent was created around 8:20 this morning. I uploaded it directly from the SD card - it's the first Romlog I ever made - and the earlier CHDK 1.1 Remixes don't support any Romlog creation - the .lua script causes error messages. 15012: 4:30 - 5:00 p.m. ESTHistogram - again it briefly works right, but after a few shots / reboots it begins the inaccurate flashing between center peak and edge peaks. I've attached Romlog_hist.log created on reboot after the Histogram shutdown.I tried Zebra again on the same Remix5 - CHDK 1.3 again, rebooting three times. Again the same erratic behavior with large blocks of orange alternating with proper display, and it did the Error 26 freeze. I've attached Romlog_zebra.log on reboot after that Zebra shutdown.I made this Remix5 card with CardTricks again on a 4gb Class 4 card, which has always worked reliably on all my cameras on small cards.
if it doesn't then it means the camera is crashing without saving any log data; which is unusual.
