Creative Shots Mode...

I have a Canon with the creative shot mode, where it quickly picks five filters to use out of many more. Would it be possibly to write a script that just flat out used every filter? Thanks

Almost certainly not without doing a bunch of reverse engineering.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks reyalp. What do you mean by reverse engineering? You don't have to be that specific.
I imagine looking at the natural Canon script for the creative shot mode and adding to or bypassing some of the lines of code so it shoots in every available filter.

I mean analyzing the Canon firmware to understand how the creative shot feature works and then finding a way to modify it.

In the very broadest sense, this is correct, but actually doing it is extremely difficult and time consuming. We don't have a "script" for the Canon firmware, only binary machine code. A full disassembly of a modern firmware is over 2 million lines of undocumented assembly.

A person who knows assembly language can analyze small parts, but a feature like creative shot isn't usually isolated to a single, identifiable location. Instead there are multiple tasks (processes) the implement different parts of the UI and shooting process, spread of many thousands of lines of code.

It's possible there is a simple variable or something that could be poked to do what you want, but just finding that out would likely take a lot of work.

On Cameras with native RAW you have just made a single RAW. Than you could use Canon’s Digital Photo Professional to develop all picture with the different styles (same as in the cam) …
