Hey! I got StereoData Maker to work! :D
On my first try I must have downloaded A590/100e.

I like the way the StereoData Maker's menu is organized and the big fonts.

However, I cant find a way to refocus in video mode. I can't find
a shortcut to activate RAW either, and I don't see a DNG option.

So back to a590-101b-0.9.8-759-full.zip for now. I'm hoping to see
more PowerShot A590IS features soon.

Is there any work being done for the A590IS?

Keep up the good job! :)

I cant find a way to refocus in video mode.

Because SDM is often used with two or more synchronised cameras, that feature is of no use.
However, I may add it for people using a single camera.

You can only have so many shortcuts and SDM uses them for other things.
10-bit RAW on small-sensor cameras is not rated as very useful by most SDM users.

There is no need to take-up valuable memory supporting that feature in-camera because WIA-Loader has special support for SDM and the uploaded images (via USB or card-reader) can be automatically converted to DNG.

@David
You are right, it is good to keep SDM light to save
that valuable memory.

However, it would be nice, as you said to have a version for people using
a single camera since the big fonts are so nice and the way
menus/icons are organized is nice too.

Yes, a refocus in video mode would be a plus and DNG
support (in the SDM single version).

I am not familiar with WIA-Loader  but  I sure like
getting those DNGs from my card with simple clicks in
Explorer, they open easily from anywhere and
with in-camera white balance and Exif in them.

Another thing I like about SDM is how the icons are all aligned
on top, very nice.

Keep up the nice work and thanks.

Hi all.
I'm new to this forum, so sorry if i'm so straight.
I recently bought one A590IS. In this moment i don't have the possibility to have a card reader and i want to upload CHDK to my camera. I heard of UploadFirmware.exe, so i tried to use the one linked on the wiki (the older one with the EWatch executable). I modified FirmInfo.txt, run the program, the camera LCD goes black, but unfortunately i received the following message: "A transmission error occurred during the copy process. Format the memory card ... etc."
So I tried to use the newer version of this software (wich runs well for other Digic III DryOS cameras, ...?): i used the one for the PowerShot G10 firmware update (the one with CALIB.dll), but this time as well i get the same type of error.
Am I doing something wrong or is impossible, for this camera, to work with this software?

Thanks,

Camillo

Camillo, are you Italian? :D (If it is, give a look to http://www.hwupgrade.it/forum/showthread.php?t=1507541) anyway the uploader is pretty old and don't support any camera: I believe nobody work on this anymore because card-readers are really cheap and much more convenient use them. ;)

There is a chance that someone resolve this bug, it's quite annoying in the review mode:

There something wasn't working right in the porting (a590 fw 1.01B), because with CHDK sometimes buttons aren't responding, as instead they do whithout CHDK active..

For example two of the more common:
1) just after taking a photo if you press any other button the quick LCD preview hangs on and won't disappear until you switch to review mode and then back..
2) when you use the review mode and zoom on a detail of a photo (the blue led lights on everytime you touch the zoom lever) you aren't able to pan around with the joystick, to see something aren't just in the middle of the photo (and this obviously won't happen if CHDK isn't active)

Furthermore I don't understand why with the last autobuild is no more possible to set aperture over f/16 (I'm sure the camera can go fairly to f/20 because I tested it) even if the diffraction was really visible with those settings I think it's better let the user decide..

FWIW, I've added long exposure support for a590. Test builds can be found in http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,3461.msg34975.html#msg34975

If someone can test the 100e version, that would be helpful.

thanks reyalp!

build a590-101b-0.9.8-772 : I thing some bugs with OSD display- while half pressing the shutter, the OSD flashes on and off, as well the original firmware's 2:3 grid lines. The problem more obvious with build a590-101b-0.9.8-770 (after half-pressing the shutter multiple times). This also occurs with build 758 & 769

Already reported in Bugs Report thread. http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,265.105.html

This is normal for CHDK. There is some work to do this more nicely, but it is only for the ixus870 at the moment. Don't forget what the H stands for ;)

This cannot be correct, I haven't changed anything related to screen updating.

When the canon firmware updates the display, the CHDK display is wiped out and may not be redrawn right away. How frequently this happens will vary depending on your exact settings.
