sd600 optical zoom
« on: 08 / February / 2009, 18:28:09 »

I've been using a BASIC script to give me an optical zoom during video recording but I notice that the latest build of CHDK says this feature is now enabled.

I can't seem to get this to work.  Do I have to do something to turn it on?  I can't find anything in the menu's  I just get the digital zoom whilst recording as normal.

I realise that the video compression option has been removed.  Is unlocking the optical zoom dependent on that feature perhaps?

OK, I tried putting back in the non-working "video parameters" code (movie_rec.c) and can now see that "Enable optical zoom" is an option in there.

I can also confirm that trying to record a video causes to camera to immediately lock up requiring the battery to be removed to clear it.

So... my next question is "Is there a way to enable the optical zoom without enabling the other broken bits of code?"

I will have a look again myself, but my understanding of how all this hangs together is pretty limited.
