Question about CHDK!!! with model SD950 (IXUS 960)
« on: 01 / December / 2008, 19:00:18 »
Hi Im about to buy a camera, I been looking for a point and shoot that is able to take time lapse pictures, I found that some nikon and pentax come with a built in interval function, but the quality of those cameras doesn't really compare to the canon ones. Anyways I think I've chosen to buy the SD950 (IXUS 960). I checked on CHDK website and there is a autobuild available.

So my question has anyone tried loading the CHDK on a SD950 (IXUS 960)?? any issues or problems????
And a general question about intervalometer scripts to anyone that has used any of the scripts available. When using the script the camera will take the picture every certain amount of second on its full res right (ie 4,000 x 3,000 on a 12mp)??? not in movie mode with lower res (640X480).

thank you very much to anyone who can give me a hand clarifying these issues.

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, the SD950 is CHDK capable.

Yes, full resolution, any resolution you want. Although a smaller resolution is recommended so you don't run out of space for long time lapses and also to be able to take a shot every few seconds, for relative fast moving subjects and longer final video.

You can begin with a basic intervalometer script (well, in fact, you should begin with buying the camera!)

Then, if shooting a sunset, you can use this advanced time lapse script which automatically adjusts the exposure.

P.S. You might want to be more specific with the subject of your questions here in the forum. 99% of them are a "question about CHDK" :haha
