I tracked down a 'strangeness' with my M10 camera bracketing script.

All is well if I'm using an M lens.

If I use a fully manual lens, the script gets as far as the following function and stops.

Code: [Select]
function myshoot()
    local prevcnt = hook_shoot.count()
    local rawprevcnt = hook_raw.count()
    press 'shoot_full_only'
    repeat sleep(10) until prevcnt ~= hook_shoot.count()
    release 'shoot_full_only'
    repeat sleep(10) until rawprevcnt ~= hook_raw.count()
end

Are you aware of any reason this should be the case?

Can you shoot without CHDK?
Do you have the option shooting without lens activated in the Canon menu?

@c_joerg

Have spent some time investigating.

It looks like neither the code above or a simple CHDK shoot() call work on the M10 with a manual lens in place.

The same script works ok on the M3.

As I say, strange.

That happens all the time. :D
I don't know why Canon included this option...

Plus this is a 'new' (2nd hand) Cam, so I haven't yet 'set it up': well that's my excuse  ;)

My first step with a used camera is always to factory reset it...
