Many thanks for the reassurance. I’ve not ‘played around’ with CHDK for many years; restricting myself to ML and Lua scripting on my 5D3 and EOSMs, vis and IR.

Looking forward to getting my G7X.

Really ‘only’ looking for advanced exposure bracketing for now.

Cheers

Garry

Just checking in hope really  :)
Is there any update/news on the G7X flicker, ie when CHDK is showing stuff?
I have build 5244 loaded.
Or is it something that we will have to live with?

Cheers
Garry

It's a general problem for all digic 6 ports. I do not know of any viable solution.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I feared you were going to say that, but such is life.
 


I know over at ML, a1ex made use of a double buffer aproach, to minimize/eliminate any flicker. But I don't really know what that does, nor if it is even possible in CHDK cams.


 
It least my G1X is stable  ;)

Philmoz added support for partial mitigation, with implementation in the g5x port.

@srsa_4c 

This is good to hear, as I've just purchased a G5X and I'm awaiting delivery  :)
Looking forward to seeing if my auto focus bracketing script and my new DoF Info script run on the G5X.
Cheers

Thanks, I saw the difference but was sure of the reason behind it. I'll try it out on my cams when I get a chance.

@pigeonhill: What firmware version G7X do you have?

OK, here's a test build with philmoz flicker workaround. I tried it on mine but I'm not sure it helped much. With the settings I usually use (face tracking, continuous AF of) it's often very stable, but sometimes starts blinking  ~few times per second. I haven't seen the blinking with the new code, but it's hard to know if that's due to the change or coincidence.

Note that this will NOT fix the flicker when something like face tracking AF is constantly updating.
