Ok, so it looks like I have the following firmware on my SD 550:
Canon PowerShot SD550
P-ID:3116 NT
Firmware Ver GM1.00F
E18
Jul 7 2005

I've tried loading all of the F and G builds and the intervalometer scripts all seem to freeze. After I initiate a script, my camera takes the first shot and then it just shows the last focus point on the display. I've got the image review option off in the normal menu, so that shouldn't be messing with my scripts.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should try next?


Thanks,
NU

Hi, had the same issue, anything with the shoot command in freezes (you'll also have to turn off review in the main camera menu)  I amended the scripts to not use shoot and use click "shoot_full" and seemed to work. Here's my version of the intervalomter script.



Code: [Select]
rem Author - Keoeeit
rem Written for S-Series
rem Should be okay on others
rem Use Endless mode with caution
rem See documentation for important info
@title Ultra Intervalometer
@param a Delay 1st Shot (Mins)
@default a 0
@param b Delay 1st Shot (Secs)
@default b 0
@param c Number of Shots
@default c 5
@param d Interval (Minutes)
@default d 0
@param e Interval (Seconds)
@default e 0
@param f Interval (10th Seconds)
@default f 5
@param g Endless? No=0 Yes=1
@default g 0

p=a*60000+b*1000
t=d*60000+e*1000+f*100
if c<1 then let c=5
if t<100 then let t=100
if g<0 then let g=0
if g>1 then let g=1
if p<0 then let p=0
z=t*c
y=p+z

print "1 Cycle Time:", y/60000; "min", y%60000/1000; "sec"

goto "interval"

:interval
  if p>0 then gosub "pause"
  print "Shot 1 of", c
  click "shoot_full"
  for n=2 to c
  sleep t
  print "Shot", n, "of", c
  click "shoot_full"
  next n
  if g=1 then goto "interval" else end

:pause
  n=(a*60)+b
  for m=1 to n
  q=n-m
  print "Intvl Begins:", q/60; "min", q%60; "sec"
  sleep 930
  next m
  return


Those who have firmware 'g' need to refer to this post by 'imh' to get the interval working. Works beautifully... except it does not save the actual images. But the script do work. Cheers Imh.

Anyone has any idea how to get the camera to actually save the photos it seems to be taking?

Apologies, please disregard my previous post, everything works fine. The scripts do not 'run' in the auto mode. Swtich to manual to get the scripts to run. Just ran it and got the results. Thanks again to everyone for making this happen. Am so excited to play with my beloved Ixus 750 now :)

I bought a canon ixus 750 so i could use it with CHDK. unfortunately I got version h of the firmware. is there any way I could downgrade the firmware to g or f, or how close is the h compatable version to completion?
Thanks
Richard

I also have an sd550 running 1.00h NTSC that I would LOVE to get running with CHDK features.  Anyone with any leads on whether there is any progress being made or anyone that's even working on it anymore?  I'll gladly donate a fair sum of $ to help fund the project to anyone that posts a working build for 1.00h NTSC.

Hi there, I got CHDK working on 1.00H firmware, needs some more testing though.
