Hi, my first post here...

I'm a happy Ixus-80 user + CHDK + blablalbalb

I've been messing around with the camera and 2 of the features I'd love to use seem not to be working:

-B-Mode beyond 15 seconds (I set 64, for example and it always stops at 15). Any special trick I should use?
-Video Zoom doesn't work. Once the shutter is pressed, no zoom can be applied.

I think I could read somewhere a feature list for EVERY different camera, and I think I can remember I saw that even "generic CHDK" can force B-Mode times beyond 15 seconds, with the IXUS-80 it wasn't still achieved...

I've read somewhere in this thread that "deleting chdk.cfg file" (or similar) might help for some blocked or missconfigured features from older versions...

Whatever. Are my 2 questions a BUG? Do other people notice the same things?

CHDK build -- -------7.730 (or something similar)

with the latest auto build you can take something like 2000+ sec. exp.
I've taken some over 10 min. with my sd1100.
Powershot SD1100 IS  FW 1.01A
CHDK autobuild 0.9.8-755
SDM 1.80

A MORE than well deserved thanks to all who made CHDK possible. It's made me a camera freak!

Well, the thing is I assume CHDK does this kind of fancy stuff, but even after having read the manuals and so, I can't find which option I should activate.
There's some kind of value (buried somewhere in the menus AFAIK) where it seems I can change the time, but even I do it, "how should I shoot" the pic afterwards? (THAT would be the problem I have).

Should I enter Manual mode, and then set the official 15" timer? (I think I shouldn't, as, of course, that's the official Canon menu)...

I think I have to tweak "value overrides" somewhere, but I can't understand how. (I can remember something like "disable override values [off/Disabled/Enabled]". This is SO cryptic... It seems a bad joke...

As my previous question stated, "which should be the 'exact' procedure" to take a long shot? I'm EAGER to try astro photography and some other funny stuff...

Thanks in advance...

I've discovered by myself that I have to override the values AND the multiplier factor. If multiplier factor is off, the value I selected won't do a thing.

I'll thank myself. Happy me.

I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but I've been finding answers that contradict each other all over the wiki.

Is it possible to use an 8 gig card with the CHDK with this camera? I've found some places saying it is and some saying it isn't (at least without just cutting it down to a 4 gig partition and ignoring the other 4 gigs). I tried to follow the directions for a card bigger than 4 gigs (I have a mac) but they didn't work, and I'm not sure if I did it wrong or it just isn't supported for this camera.

And I'll just weigh in that I also can't use optical zoom during video, even with the CHDK (on my 4 gig card). I checked that the CHDK menu option "enable optical zoom" under video parameters is checked, but it doesn't work. I'm not sure if its supposed to or not.

Edit: I got the 8 gig card working with the manual boot option (and I've gathered that autoboot won't work on it).

I use the chdk on my SX230 and SD1100 cameras, and I installed them using a Macbook, currently running 10.6.8.

Is get_mode in video mode broken for ixus80_sd1100 or does its video mode work differently from other cams?

I had modify the script you posted because the console disappers in Video and Play mode very quickly.

I ran it in all 3 modes and got as the result

No Video Button
Rec Mode in Rec Mode
Play Mode in Video and Play Mode

here is my version
Code: [Select]
@title modetest
print_screen 1
V=get_video_button
if V=0 then print "No video button."
if V=1 then print "Cam has video button."
M=get_mode
if M=0 then
print_screen 2
print "Rec mode."
endif
if M=1 then
print_screen 3
print "Play mode."
endif
if M=2 then
print_screen 4
print "Video mode."
endif
sleep 5000

Is this still being worked on? I'm so looking forward to autostart with >4gb cards.

Nope, you're out of luck. It appears that Chris looked into it, and included the necessary code in largedisk.c for FW 100c (but not for 101a), but this code doesn't seem to be used in the build. He apparently believed that he needed a large card to test it -- "This is not supported unless I receive a large SD card".

any success with the LED control for the sd1100is ?

i need to interface a motion detection script  to a microcontroller

i have tried several things in both LUA and BAS scripts (set_led)
but no success with the latest trunk

i have poked around and compiled some changes in the source
but  but no luck here either.

i can get a "beep"  but with the environment i need to use it in. noise is going to be an issue.

any ideas?
