Hi, have also played around with 1.00f firmware on a 1.00g camera.  Same as jsteel, menu's etc work ok, but I'm seeing all scripts freeze, wherever it's meant to take multiple shots it only takes one.  I'll play around with it more tomorrow. 

Very pleased so far though!

I haven't tried scripts on 1.00f either, so they may not work at all. One thing to bear in mind is that the binary I posted is an allbest build, and according to the CHDK wiki, allbest builds are not currently recommended for scripting - see here. Using the source you can,of course, make a GrAnd build, and try that.

No - you have to use dng2ps-2 to convert the RAW files to DNG format...

CHDK wikia - FAQ: I've shot some RAW pictures. How do I process them ?
CHDK for Dummies: RAW

Interesting, I didn't realize that (obviously!)... thanks for the information, I'll give that a try.

(Yes, the "newbie" tag is well earned for me!) :)

Cheers for the link.  I've actually managed to get a simple exposure bracketing script running by changing some of the commends used already, it's all looking good!

Played around with more exposure settings, intervalometer and motion detection scripts, all seem to work.  :D

tried adding source from reply #6 to (my local version of) trunk 449 ->

"Missing camera definition in /include/camera.h"

I have an SD550 ntsc and tried this and it didn't work for me. Do I need to do something special for it to work with my NTSC camera? Sorry, I'm a CHDK n00b!

My girlfriend got an Ixus 750 PAL with firmware 1.00G, i'm adjusting some minor things.

In main.c:

New modemap:
Code: [Select]
    { MODE_DIGITAL_MACRO,       2 },
    { MODE_MY_COLORS,           3 },
    { MODE_STITCH,              4 },
    { MODE_AUTO,                5 },
    { MODE_SCN_PORTRAIT,        6 },
    { MODE_SCN_FOLIAGE,         7 },
    { MODE_SCN_SNOW,            8 },
    { MODE_SCN_BEACH,           9 },
    { MODE_SCN_WATER,          10 },
    { MODE_SCN_INDOOR,         11 },
    { MODE_SCN_NIGHT,          12 },
    { MODE_SCN_CHILD,          13 },
    { MODE_SCN_FIREWORK,       14 },
    { MODE_VIDEO_STD,          15 }

Line 60:

    mode  = (physw_status[0]&0x0F)==0x0B ?  MODE_PLAY : MODE_REC;
to
    mode  = (physw_status[1]&0x0F)==0x0B ?  MODE_PLAY : MODE_REC;

Remaining things seem to be ok.

Looks nice so far. Is there a possibility to implement manual focus on that cam?


Edit: Yes, it is possible.

    #define  CAM_CAN_SD_OVERRIDE        1

In camera.h is enough. In alt mode, pressind "Up" enables one to focus over the zoom rocker.

(And for some reason, i need to press the zoom rocker carefully, so the SD override changes to 1, before i start playing around freely with the override.. otherwise the cam just turns off.)

Edit2:

I just noticed that it's sufficient to zoom in & back (doesnt matter how far, one step is enough) out one time, and SD override will work. Otherwise the cam hangs (It retracts the lens half ways and then just turns itself off)

I'm just trying to find out what changes during zooming in and out, but i honestly have no idea..

Cool, any chance you could post the binary so those with 1.00G can have a play?
