I noticed that the port does not implement the SD card related workaround (see the g7x or m10 port, in task_Startup_my). The firmware function you need to call is, I believe, sub_FC08F5B8.
That might fix the card problem gpancot is experiencing.

@gpancot
Since you're the only known person having this SD card problem, please stand by until a release with the above mentioned fix becomes available, and report back whether it fixes the card error message with your Samsung card.

Please let me know what I should do to test this.
AFAIK, we have never made a definitive list for testing every thing that a porter sets in the sub/<fw> directories.  In general,  the first firmware version of a new port gets some high level functionality tests - with a bias towards things that are hard to find or have caused problems.  Just getting CHDK to load and display menus correctly is a big step all by itself.

Subsequent additions of different firmware versions for any released port get a bit of a free pass. If they appear to work then, based on the original port being good,  we mostly assume they are okay until anyone reports otherwise .

So the big things I'd suggest checking are :
  • RAW/DNG images - take some shot with DNG enabled and assure yourself that the DNG images actually look like uncorrected versions of the related JPG
  • USB remote - enable this and just use a regular USB cable plugged into a spared charger or computer port to trigger it and assure it's working
  • exposure overrides in the Enhanced Photo Operations menu - set both Tv, Sv, & Av and make sure the resulting image change appropriately when you change the values
  • set a long exposure time (30 seconds) and then see if dark frame subtraction control works ( if not, it will take 60 seconds to complete a 30 second exposure)
  • try out the edge overlay, historgram, and zebra functions and make sure they seem to work (i.e. usable images on the camera's LCD)
  • try running some scripts - there are four simple ones included with the CHDK installation file and hundreds more online at places like this
  • play with anything else that tweaks your interest
There is learning curve here so feel free to post questions.  If all else fails - RTFM.  And tell us how you did - if the 1.01b build passes the above list of tests without crashing then we will release it for distribution in the autobuild.


Thanks, I will test these out and get back to you.


Here's what I have so far.


RAW/DNG - I'm not noticing much difference between RAW and JPEG in Photoshop - is it possible that this camera's profile is in Photoshop, and it converts the RAW image automatically?


USB remote - can't get the computer to recognize the camera when it's connected.  I may have to get an actual USB remote and test with that.


Histograms look OK.
Zebra - can't get this to display.
Edge overlay looks OK.


Other features:


Color change is fine.
The text reader doesn't recognize carriage returns.  I converted the user manual to text, and it looked OK on my computer, but when viewed with the camera, it's a solid block of text with no returns at the end of each line.  Whatever code my text viewer is using to indicate this, the camera isn't recognizing it.


When I change settings in Play (so the menu doesn't blink), if the lens retracts, pressing the shutter doesn't reactivate it.  I have to turn the camera on and off to use the new settings.


Still need to get to the exposure overrides, dark frame subtraction, and long exposure times - I haven't been able to get these to work but this may be due to other settings in the Canon menu.

The firmware update method (needed the ps.fi2 file) is for DIGIC 6 cameras disabled, because there are some problems.

Strange. If you are using the RAW format (i.e. not DNG)?  I'm actually surprised photoshop will even open it.   You could play with one of the other RAW packages like rawtherapee or ufraw of course just to be sure.

You don't need your PC to recognize the camera.  You are just using the +5V from it's USB port to trigger the CHDK functionality.

Zebra - can't get this to display.
Per https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=12788.msg131900#msg131900 try cranking the settings for UnderExposure Threshold & OverExposure Threshold up to 25.

I usually have the Lens Retract Delay in the Canon settings set to zero.  IBut when I try 60 seconds, I don't see the "lock up" you report. Not sure what this might be caused by.

Make sure you have set Disable Overrides [ No ].  Also, set Disable Overrides on Startup to [  ]

"memory card error" was with 32GB Samsung EVO UHS-I Class 10 (U1)
no error with 16GB Sandisk Class 4 (non UHS)
(v5000 and v5001)
Attached build has the fix for UHC cards suggested by srsa_4c included.

Let me know how that works with your 32GB Samsung EVO UHS-I Class 10 card?

FWIW, SD performance may also be significantly improved on some cards (background https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=13089.msg132605#msg132605)
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I'd recommend the STICK or CHIMP utilities linked at the top of that page.
