One is that the method for setting the maximum exposure is by 1/1000 s by steps of 1.
Why not just have a list of regular exposure times to click through. As it is clicking from the default value of 1000 down to 50 is a bit of a pain. I don't know much about scripting in lua, but surely there must be a way of defining an array, e.g. in pseudo code
The other problem is that setting the limit at 50/1000 s (= 1/20) doesn't seem to take effect (shots were taken at 1/5 s, which was far too slow to be of much use). Is there anything I am missing here?
Thanks for reporting that, it looks like a bug in the script.
but I suspect it is due to having "ISO adj TV Sec/1000" set to longer value than "Max Tv Sec/1000".
I'd definitely suggest doing a quick test run to verify that before you take it on a trip.
Can the raw exposure metering section of this script be coded into CHDK firmware, as in LUA2C? Best of both worlds
Where do I find raw metering in the CHDK menus?
I also added battery temp to the log at c_joerg's request.
I'm hoping to do some more serious work in this script again soon.
I noticed those small oscillations in brightness and fixed them in the script. Basically, I don't adjust exposure until it's around 5 ev96 off. I gradually increase the amount of each adjustment from 0 to 3 ev96 until I'm 48 ev96 off, then adjust to 48 off after that. It's like driving a car. You turn the wheel more and more towards the center of the road as you near the edge. Then you turn the wheel as much as needed to keep from going off the road.
