Looks like you've got an old version of chdk I sent you yesterday.
Today's test version is tagged as test1, compiled today at 11:15 am.
Code: [Select]

  Also the focus square overwrites the CHDK menu, so you have to put the lense cap on to use the menu
Switch the camera to P mode and set the AF Frame to the <Center> in the Canon menu.
AUTO shooting mode is always problematic.

Oops, my bad.  Here is the hooktest.log from the correct build.  Using P mode helped.  Still 2 picks on motion detect ...

I do not know what the problem is with MD script, but hooktest.log looks terrible. :D
Can you try to run the shoot.lua script. Does this script take only one image?
Did you try to save the DNG image?

Shoot.lua does take only one pic.  I cannot save in DNG format.  In DNG 1.3, no .dng file is created.  When I tried format 1.1, I had to run "create badpixel.bin" and it said "create badpixel.bin failed"

I couldn't see any improvement in this build.  Still 26 fails on the hooktest.log, 2 pics on motion detect and no .dng.

Hey Blackhole, this build was a big improvement.  Motion capture only takes one pic now and the hooktest.log has no fails.  It didn't seem to produce a .dng, but I'll do more testing ...

Thanks for the report!
DNG files are not visible without the chdkptp application, you have to remove the card and use the reader card.

I was able to run that "create badpixel.bin" and create a .dng file!  Busy today, I'll do more testing tomorrow.

No rush.
Upload a dng file somewhere and send me a link, you do not have to rush. I need to determine the active area of the sensor.
