I would be interested to know if the first shot glitch still shows up with the current script on A410, IXUS65 and IXUS870.
I re-tested them and the glitch seems to be gone. Logs attached, just in case.

It's still either these or more: https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=13445.0
I can't promise when but I'll test all I have that are still missing.
Thanks, and no rush.

Since I'll I get 'em all out and updated to the latest build is there anything else you'd like to happen once each is active?
Good thought. I looked through the changes in 1.5 a bit and didn't come up with anything.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

@reyalp a lifetime later...
The first 10. Are these what you expect?
Used a white surface on a computer screen as the low contrast scene, think that'll fare ok but still mentioning it as it's not a wall. All walls are black at night  8)

Thanks. It'll take me a bit to get back up to speed with this, I've been distracted with PTP bugs (which I initially discovered because one of these scripts was exactly the size required to trigger it  :blink:)

Yeah a computer screen should be fine, as long as it doesn't flicker significantly with the shutter speeds being used. Doesn't seem to be a problem in the ones you posted.

There are a couple oddities:

ixus700_sd500
only has the header row in the CSV. Seems like maybe the script errored out before it took any shoots. I noticed the date was 01/01/1980 00:00:33 so it could have been sitting at the clock screen or something.

It would be helpful if you can re-run and check whether it actually shoots and if there are any errors on the camera screen.

ixus970_sd890-100c
From the log, it looks like the ND was in for the initial shots, but not in the initial half press. This is weird.

Please check whether ND is set in CHDK overrides (it should be "off"), and if it was already off, maybe retry with a darker scene. A wall can be pretty dim and still work, a 1 sec exposure would be fine.

Don't forget what the H stands for.

I use the same SD card for all of these tests and leave the CHDK folder the same, same settings, script already selected etc.
All I do on each new cam is making sure that flash is off, the review is off and  sequential shooting is on. All cameras were stored without batteries and I'm too lazy to set the date so I just OK out of that which leaves the camera without a date set. I can set one in case of the Ixus 700 but don't think it will do anything. I re-tried a few times it takes one picture, then something fails. I'll post a screen shot...

Re-iterated that twice, see if it's any different.

Here are 6 more

I stopped as I would have started through the low Ixus range 30-90 and the Ixus 30 gave the same trouble as the 700 did before. One image and that's it. Made another screenshot of it, too.

Makes sense, and should be fine.

That explains it, seems like the remote hook is not being reached, which it turns out is noted in the camera notes.txt. Nothing more to do with this one unless/until remote is fixed.

edit:
ixus970_sd890-100c is the same as before. The ND functions are overridden in stubs_entry2.s, maybe there's something wrong there.

The very first few DIGIC II models don't have a full-blown capt_seq task and don't have all the hooks.

Good, so that is "won't fix" or "can't fix" stuff and I'll just test the lot and we'll see what happens with the later ones.
