    Looks like it's a bug, introduced in 1166

    For now, setting "shoot delay" in the script menu > 0 should fix it.

    Thanks for the report.

    edit: should be fixed in autobuild 1170

    Don't forget what the H stands for.

    Another possible bug is that you can't get exit_alt() in lua to exit a script.
    Something like this:

    set_aflock(1)  -- makes AF scan and locks AF
    sleep(3000)  --  wait a while
    shoot()   -- shoot without AF
    sleep(3800)
    set_aflock(0)  -- unlock AF
    exit_alt()

    gets stuck in the script and you need to enter <alt> mode
    and then press the shutter button to exit and run the script again.
    Shouldn't exit_alt() exit alt mode and send you back to normal so you can run the script again?

    What does optional EXMEM support for A590 101b do?
    Will we see some speed when saving DNG raw files? Or will it speed dark frame subtraction?

    No, this not a speedup feature. It's more for developers.

    The normal memory of the camera is limited. With this function we can load CHDK in an area with more memory capacity. Read more about EXMEM here: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=5980.0

    Ok, so it is more about exmem_heap allocation. Wish it could be used as a buffer to speedup raw processing... but I'm sure it isn't big enough.

    Thanks msl!

    One possible idea for this cam and chdk is to give the cameras Custom settings. Some sort of memory that can help the camera remember aperture, shutter speed and focal length.  Something like C1, C2... from a menu.

    When using http://www.rawtherapee.com/ (64-bit), I'm getting a border that looks like hotpixels when I load my chdk's DNGs into RawTherapee.

    I wonder if this is normal. I see it more in night shots. I hope is not a chdk DNG problem or my A590IS :(.

    Please,can someone explain to me why the option CAM_EV_IN_VIDEO is disabled in platform_camera.h for the A590 because it works well, or is there some hidden problem that I have not seen.
    I tested the firmware 101b.
