I would also be glad to be able to use the remote shutter.

While you are waiting, try this version :-

http://www.zshare.net/download/6464259208e07daa/

Rename to DISKBOOT.BIN and replace existing file on your bootable card.

You do not need a script, just press the button.

A quick on/off for focus and press and release to shoot.

Or, a longer press and release when screen blanks.

Does it work ?

(the person I did this for is waiting to buy a Ricoh switch).

I can boot from it. What else can I do with SDM?

Like this? http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/sdm/ca1.htm

I would like to be able to use the Gentled Switch http://www.gentles.ltd.uk/gentled/options.htm#CHDK

Will that work?

RAW is the same format as discussed above?

Cheers
Norbert

A lot ... but first tell me if the remote USB switch works.

If you want the photo to be taken as soon as you press the switch (rather than on release), in menu Bracketing/Overrides set focus-mode to Manual.
'FAST' should be displayed at the top of the screen.

Certainly will.

Which one do you have ?
I am familiar with the gentLES products.
Just set FAST mode.

Yes.

From the SDM website download Common_files.zip.
At the very least, copy script time_lapse.bas to your Scripts folder.
Read the two pages on the website about the use and testing of that script.

Sorry, don't have any so far.

No, just says 'Single shot mode' on top of the screen.

Did so, script runs but eventually hangs.

None so far, was thinking about this one http://www.gentles.ltd.uk/gentled/gentled-ricoh3.jpg

Test by connecting camera to computer with the USB lead, that will provide a 5V signal.

I think you mean  DIRECT.
There is text for two focus modes.
I should have said focus mode that comes after 'focus step size'

Before running script, directly press shutter button.
'Synch' should no longer be displayed.
Then run the script.

When I connect and disconnect USB a shot is triggered with disconnect, when flash is switched on the flash is triggered with both connect and disconnect.

That is the preflash (for white balance) and main flash.

When you say that time-lapse script does not work, can you describe in more detail ?

That would be very unusual, the code is common to all models of camera.

Script starts ok, I see the countdown to the next shot, and so on, shoots several pics, then pan the cam to another scene and the cam hangs (dark display, no reaction until switch on/off).

Does the script end after the three shots ?

If so, what happens if you do not pan the camera and start the script again ?
